When we find out that there are CruiseMates from the message boards and chat on the same cruise. And especially individuals we have met from past cruises.

When I realize I'm on a ship full of wildlife, like a moose and a pamda!

My socks also get sufficiently rocked throughout the pre-cruise planning process. I love the anticipation, the research, the planning of excursions. The anticipation and planning are nearly as much fun for me as the actual cruise itself. Once my daughter and I planned an extemporaneous trip to Puerto Vallarta, leaving with only a few days planning. The trip was great, but I really felt something was missing. That's when I realized how much I like the planning and anticipating beforehand.

When the ship starts to pull away from the dock. What a feeling!

Cheers,

next year is a busy year for the company dh works for and there is a lot of planning going on for the activities. my heart leaps when i am asked if we are free for such and such event and i can say "nope, ON A CRUISE". its the first time weve put a vacation before company needs and that feels great!

When we pull up to the pier and I kiss the ship. Mrs. Thomas tries to hide her face and pretend she doesn't know me but our matching clown outfits gives her away! !

For me it's when I see the ship and then when it first pulls away from the dock. Makes me want to leave right now for a cruise just thinking about it. :-)

The biggest rush is a toss up betwen when the last bag is in the car and we are backing out of the driveway and we arrive at the pier!

The first is when I see the ship in the distance and the second and really big one is when I hear the ship's horn. That horn can bring me to tears if I'm not on a cruise and hear it.

Easily when I first catch sight of the ship at the pier. I'm like a kid at Christmas. In fact, it's the same feeling I got as a kid when once a year we would go to Disneyland and I saw the Matterhorn.

The planning before booking is exciting, but my heart starts to pound when we go to the airport and finally get into the plane after waiting such a long time.
And when the plane is leaving Europe and flying over the ocean towards the Caribean, I can hardly wait to get there and won't be calmed down before I see the ship.

My heart pounded also last week when we saw the Legend in our Amsterdam Passenger Terminal, knowing we are on the Pride in January and suggested to my husband to swim to the lifeboats and stay on the Legend till she arrives in the Caribean. ))


Only 22 weeks, 2 nights, 1 day to go......

I love the planning, too, but when I catch the first glimpse of the ship as I arrive at the dock! Absolute very, very heart pounding!

I just love watching the ship pull away from the pier.

Then I realize that I'm still drinking in Carlos 'N Charlie's.

Damn.
