Default Emotional Last Night on the Cruise

When we were having our last dinner on the Carnival Glory, the waiters sang "Leaving on a Fun Ship" (in the tune of "Leaving on a Jet Plane") for us as a farewell song. It was so sad, and I felt like I was tearing up a bit. Does anyone know the lyrics to the Carnival version of the song ("Leaving from a Fun Ship")?

We had made friends with our waiters, next-door neighbours and friends at the table; and it was sad to leave them, even if it had only been 7 days. Has anyone ever felt sad or even teared up a bit on their last dinner or night on a cruise (even if it was a short one)?

I get sad on the last day and night of the cruise. You are made to feel like the ship is home, and then suddenly you realize that it will now be someone else's home. Great to cruise, but sad to get off.

Amaretto, you were warned it's addictive. And from what I see, you've got it BAD!

Some people don't like the singing in the dining room, but I enjoy it and I love the "leaving on a funship" song the last night. I get really sad, then I get even more sad when I have to go back to the room and pack after the last dinner.

I agree,,,we never want to get off the ship, and always must have at least one cruise booked, so that even though we are leaving one ship, we have another to look forward to. Obviously, some cruises are better than others, but of late there are none that I haven't felt a bit sad when getting ready to pack the bags, and put them out in the hallway on the last evening.

I too always feel that way the last night as well, I think most of us do too. Its great to make new friends and cruise with friends and or family, but then its back to reality, not a good thought after a wonderful week... You'll have to book that next cruise ASAP.

Yes, you are not alone. I hate post cruise depression and, as the others have said, the only thing that helps is coming home and booking (or already have booked) another cruise. Also, writing a review and coming here helps too.

I am always depressed when I get off the ship. But who isnt?? One time though was really sad. We were saying our goodbye's at dinner, and our waiter gave me a hug and actually started crying. It was so incredibly sad.

For my wife and I, it is always sad to say good-by to the ship and the new friends we have just made. Some of the friends ended up cruising with us a second and third time.

The letdown that we experience after a cruise, can only be overcome by booking our next cruise while still on board (or as soon as possible) and of course by reading this forum.

I enjoy the last day, but as someone else posted when the bag packing starts and putting them out...

~my bags are packed I am ready to go

There has got to be some way to find the lyrics to the song for Amaretto.

Default Lyrics

Whenever I finally get my video into the camera from the Destiny, I know I caught some of the show, hopefully enough to get some of the lyrics.
I too loved that moment in time-- our last cruise (Miracle) did not sing that song though.
Just lamenting how sad it is to see all the suitcases in the hall that night, and being asked to leave "the cabin" as they need to prepare for next cruise.
Only cure--yes book another. Someday I vow to take a back to back cruise!

Oh yes, buffetfan2004, could you please get some of the lyrics for me, or upload the video to YouTube? That would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Default video Leavin on a funship

Cherie,
I will be happy to do what I can-- hadn't even looked at video that may be on "my problem video camera" (I have a new one now). I will certainly try to locate video and post info on it here. If I have real success I'll use youtube (I just saw that site mentioned for first time yesterday.)
I am personally recovering from a surgery so could be a few weeks yet.
I'll keep you updated, and won't forget. In fact I'll enjoy reliving my trip!

Thanks, REDZONE, for posting the link to your video.

Also, buffetfan2004, please take your time. I'm not in a rush to see the video, and take care.

That last night is hard, especially since it seems you just got on the cruise.

That was awesome! Now I can type up the words and take them with me for my fellow first cruisers and I to sing along!

That was really thoughtful!

Regardless of what happened during your cruise, if you tear up or even feel sad - then you know you were on a good cruise!
