Default Crazy or just addicted......

Please tell me that I am not the only one that checks this site almost daily. My 2nd cruise is coming up in Decemeber and I never thought I would be more excited than I was before the 1st one. I think I'm down to 38 days before sailing and I think about it daily (more than once) A co-worker of mine leaves this weekend for her cruise and she hasn't even started packing yet. Is that normal or do I just have cruise fever? Please tell me I am not alone!!!!

Just addicted!

I check daily too.

And I am terrible about not packing until the night before we leave...!

Ditto - addicted!

The best is having your next cruise booked before going on this one. It make the departure from the ship sooooo much easier.

I have to say I am the opposite regarding packing. I usually make my list about a month before. That way I can take my time with laundry, etc.

However, when I pack I am usually packing for our family of 4.

Enjoy and safe sailing.

You mean you only check it once a day????? I usually check at least 2-3 times a day. I certainly agree that it is good to have a cruise booked already before getting on your cruise. Actually when we get on our cruise in December, we already have two booked with another to follow soon. I need to have a cruise to look forward to as it helps to get through the "work" day.

I really love the cruisemates website.

Hi Manuel,
I am already looking at my next cruise although mine is still about 35 days away. I am thinking Southern Caribbean next time, then after that the Mediterranean.....ohhhh I can't wait!!!

My name is Jeanette and I am a cruise addict.....

No, you are not crazy. I come here everyday just to see what is up. I start preparing my list of what to bring around 2 months before I leave. I have a spreadsheet with everything for clothes and other health/beauty. The last cruise I started packing a week before I left. I threw in everything I knew I wasn't going to wear and packed everything else as it was washed and ready--checking off the list as I packed, of course. My bags were fairly full when I left and stuff when I came back, but I was glad I brought more because I wore almost everythig I brought (except for one dressy shirt for formal night).

I also had my February cruise booked a month before I left for the next one. We're doing final payment tomorrow, two weeks ahead of schedule because the Canadian dollar is doing so well. I am just waiting for the dollar to go to $1.05 to book the next one, upgrade sale or no upgrade sale I am booking it. I want a Cat 8D or 8E cabin.

The cruising bug has bitten me and I don't mind that...who needs to set aside money for retirement...I am a civil servant who'll get a liveable pension when I retire. I can spend the retirement money on cruises!!!!!

Maxibluz you will love the southern caribbean cruise, as for the mediterrean I might be abit biassed because of my roots, but I would reccomend that as well.
