Default Just Wondering....

Well, since Liner Dan brought up the subject with his 89 days at sea, I just wonder how many of us can even figure it out. Here are ours (Navy time doesn't count here):

Divetex - 79
CruiseCam - 103

let's see I have to do some math here, 13 cruises but 5 were 7 days, the rest longer, it would be 132, I think. Hmmm, never figured that out before, interesting! But the worst part, nothing scheduled

I can't count that high. I ran out of fingers and toes, including Queeg's.

I think our last cruise pushed us just past the 200 day mark... Not too bad for a rookie who first cruised in 1994.

For me, only 21 so far, although I'm going to add 6 over New Years and 11 on the CruiseMates Let's Get Lei'd cruise in May. Jose figured up not too long ago that he was at 4113, give or take a few here or there. Unfortunately, only 7 of those crusiing days has been on the passenger side of the equation. The other 15 years were spent working as a waiter for Carnival!

I once was asked how many air miles I'd flown and was flipped at the result. LOTSA !!! Almost 2,000,000.

Over the past 10 years, we've cruised at least 3X year, some 7 day, others longer. One year there were five and I never unpacked between two of them except to wash underwear !!!

This year -- kinda average -- is 7 + 14 + 7 which I think comes out to 28, so 10 years equals 280 as an estimate.

If we were to count the days spent on the Chesapeake on one or another of our boats, add a bunch more.

When we were on Rottie, it was quite apparent that there were lots of cruises among the cruisers. My sister (on her FIRST cruise) did the math. The AVERAGE number of cruises among the seven people at our table was 57. Including Missy, on her first cruise.

pamda, amazed at the numbers. And CruiseAholic wasn't at our table.

I was surprised at my own 132 but what really amazes me is when you go on longer cruises and people start adding up their days! Amazing, especially when one cruise line is involved! I will never get there and feel fortunate when I can squeeze two in one year (hard to do with working full time). Still bummed that I have nothing booked after my DQ fiasco. If I get the deposit back, I still may jump on the "lei'd" deal. So what is CruiseAholic's total?
