Default You know you are addicted to cruising when......

You know you are addicted to cruising when:
You literally dream about being on a cruise ship.
The word cruise is in every sentence.
Your "non-cruising" friends roll their eyes when you mention something about cruising.
You know how many new ships are coming out and know their names.....
How about you guys?????

When everytime I make a major purchase I look at it as "how many cruises would this cover" and weigh which I want more. Did it yesterday when we purchased a new grandfather clock. Only got it 'cause hubby really wanted it....I looked at it like 1/2 a cruise....

...you have forsaken other forms of travel and vacation that you used to dearly love.

...you get goosebumps and shivers at the sound of any loud horn.

...not only do you know quite a few of the cruise lines and ships by name, but you could recognize them by pictures of their interiors, whether you have sailed on them or not!

...you want everyone around you to be as enthused as you are, and try to make it so.

When you go to/or book "bored" meetings to tide you over till the next real cruise.
))))

When you go through withdrawal when you can't read the bb.

When business associates in other cities even know when your cruises are and when you are leaving. (you know, you mention it in a casual way, in a business letter) haha

When your idea of morning coffee is not complete till you have said good morning to 40+ people (some of whom you have never met)

...the only thing you do online is read and reread cruise message boards.

.... when u call your wife from the office to find out if u're on early or late seating this week
.... when u check your mail for cruise docs each day, even when u know u have nothing booked
.... when u pick up the phone to order room service snacks, and suddenly remember you're at home
.... when before dinner u put on your life jacket and report to the front door of your house
.... when u start wishing your shower curtain would cling to your butt, just for the memories

Your wife makes a chocolate mousse for dessert and your first thought is that Kuki is coming to dinner with a deep tan.

You leave your dirty towels on the bathroom floor, go to work, and are amazed when they are still there after you get home.

You wonder why there isn't chocolates on your pillow at night, and why your bed wasn't made up in the morning, and pulled down at night.

When you hear a fire alarm, you search for your lifejacket, and the nearest life boat.

You wonder where all the ice cubes went to, and why no one replenished them.

You walk out onto your back/front porch and wonder, where all the pretty blue water is.

You walk into your dining room (or kitchen) and wonder where the menu is and where those darn waiters are to attend to your every whim...............
