Default We are booked!

We just booked our very first cruise today.

My sister and I are leaving the kids home with DH's and sailing the day after Mother's Day for a 4 day cruise.

This is a first for both of us and we can't wait. I am sure once the initial excitement dies down I will have tons of questions.

Excitement doesn't die down, but with 2 weeks left to go, it will turn into nervousness. You will wonder if you have forgotten anything or not.

Just so you know, the excitement will not die down until you realize that you have to get off of the ship the next morning. That is when you will exhibit the first symptoms of PCD (Post Cruise Depression)! At that point, you will have to start getting excited about the next one, and this time you will want to take hubby and kids with you, because you will want to see the excitement on their faces when they first see that ship! It is an experience that you will want to introduce to everyone you know.

My first cruise was just my husband and I. The next one was a small group, which included our son, his wife, and our grand-daughter. We have our 3rd one coming up in just a little over 2 weeks, and it is an even bigger group, with our daughter, her husband and our second grand-daughter. The group just keeps getting bigger and better.

The excitement truly never dies!!! You only get depressed when you don't have one booked and when you have to exit the ship and back to reality!!!! Congrats!!! You will be hooked for sure!!!
