Default What do they put in . . . .

the food, or the drinks or the air???!!! I'm sure I was exposed to some addictive substance on the Pride because I haven't been able to quit thinking about it since I got off on April 22! I spend mostall day trying to figure out how to get on another cruise, and the rest on this message board, daydreaming. My name is DeeDee and I am addicted to cruising. Anyone else?

Yes, you have officially become a cruise addict! It happens as soon as they snap that first picture of you, as you are getting ready to step foot on the ship. It is not harmful to your health, but does occupy a lot of your thoughts.

Hi, my name is Darlene, and I'm a cruise addict. Welcome to my club!

I think you are right.... they must be slipping something into our drinks. My son and I took our first cruise last summer. As soon as we returned home, we were already searching for our next cruise. My extended family is coming along this time. They don't understand why I keep talking about the cruise and this forum. They'll understand as soon as they get on board!!

I love this forum and the people on it!!

Sara, you are so right! The CruiseMates site keep me going until I can step foot on a ship again. I live through those that are able to go now, knowing all the fun that awaits them!

CruiseQueen; Now that's funny,,,,I don't care who you are, that's funny.

The sad part is, we've all probably thought of doing that,,,especially just after returning from a great cruise.

Thanks for the memories

See y'all aboard,

Ken

Oh am I ever in trouble. We are going on our first cruise New Year's Eve on the Holiday and all I can do is think about the up coming cruise. I day dream about it at work (not good on an assembly line) and just think about it all day. Just think of what I will be like AFTER I actually get to cruise!

I guess most of us are addicted. We should start calling the past guest parties, "Friends of (insert name) Meetings"

Hi, my name is Cathy and I am a cruise addict! Welcome to the club. When my husband and I went on our frist cruise on the Conquest 12/05 I think our son and daughter were pretty tired hearing about it and couldn't wait for it to be over with. But alas, for them it didn't stop then. After the cruise we had so much more to talk about, and videos and pictures! But it must have rubbed off on my son because he is taking us on a cruise this coming Dec. and it is very funny now to see him getting as excited as we were.

I don't know what they are doing, but it is something good. We started thinking about the next one when we got off the ship and on the bus to go to Ft. Lauderdale airport. A fellow passenger had the brochure with her and we were looking at it and picking where we would like to go next. At that time.

I also started seriously looking when I got myself unpacked, laundry done, and goodies for everyone sorted out. It was planned to go with my mother again in November, but as it turns out, she wanted to wait until until Jan/Feb 2008. This meant I could go when I wanted to go, so I hit a good sale and am booked for September on Triumph for only $200 more plus a two deck upgrade to Panorama deck!!!!

Hi my name is sue and I am addicted to cruises. We went on our first cruise in April on the Valor....people are sick of me talking about it and they do not want to see my pictures any more.
Every night after dinner I say to my husband "lets go get a good seat for the show" he does not laugh at that any more!

Just this morning Liz asked me what the dress code was for where we are going on our anniversary dinner.

I told her it was the same as a non formal night in the dining room !!!

Well, that explains it, then! And all this time I thought it was associated with the camera shutter! Some strong stuff, surely!

Well believe it or not the the cruise addiction is caused by SANITY, a different kind. you do what and when and where you want too, Nobody really looks over your shoulder(except security).
You can stay on the deck, in your room, on a excursion and its WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. enjoy its habit forming . Love it 6th cruise.

, I was gonna not show up at Applebee's tonight to skip out on the Envelope but decided against it , Had the Tilapia with parmesan cheese which was very good and a couple of Brewtus'. Maybe that's why my post doesn't seem to make much sense.

Cruise Crack........

They must pipe that stuff through the computer as well! I haven't even stepped foot on my first cruise and can't wait to go!!! 4 loooooong miserable months to go before I can put sand under my feet. Can't take it anymore; need help; taking...last breath; it's so dark and cold......

Somebody throw a lifeline!!!! 8)

. Didn't get the song . I am kinda stressed about the last night though, We would never stiff the tips but if I use the auto tip, do we need to tell the wait staff that we are tipping through Sail and Sign account? Or do they have access to the Purser's desk account and know how we are tipping?

Hello, My name is Bill and I am a fellow cruise-aholic and have been for 8 years now.

We are going on a cruise in October and we are already looking for our next. We are trying our hardest to pass on this glorious addiction to all of our friends and family. This fall we are going to get some friends hooked and then on the next we will target my parents.
