We returned from our SS Norway Cruise on Dec 29th. It was my first time and DH's first time "at sea" for R&R. The cruise was fabulous....better than my wildest dreams. There's always a lot to deal with after being away....sorting thru mail, washing, summer clothes back out of sight for months again, grocery shopping, etc. Also, some cruise related things like writing a review and scanning pictures to put in the photo gallery. OK....they're done. The review has been posted; the pictures transferred in. WOW....what now? Such a let down. I'm pretty sure the remedy is to begin to make plans to go again, right? Since I'm new at this, I just need your seasoned advice to reassure me I'm headed in the correct direction! :-))
Definately headed in the proper direction Nan. Now that you have had a 'taste' of the cruise lifestyle you can research to your hearts content right here at cruisemates reading others reviews as well as news articles and check out the bargains being offered. Posting here in the message boards is also a fantastic way to gather information. Welcome to the 'family' of the hopelessly addicted. <G>

go for another cruise just planning will keep your spirits up and get you on the road of recovery...or try to contact some cruisers you may have become friends with that also helps as well as reading messages and talking on cruise mates...my next cruise wont be until July to alaska but it will eventuaally get here..firstname.lastname@example.org
The only cure is the next cruise, but the symptoms can be relieved somewhat by:
1.Booking the next cruise
2.Posting here often so you know you aren't alone
3.Booking the next cruise
4.Stop in chat and we will try and cheer you up
5. Booking the next cruise
6. Reading all the brochures from all the cruiselines
7. Booking the next cruise
8. Researching which cruise you want to do next
9. Booking the next cruise
10. If all else fails, Book Your Next Cruise

Re: Re: Post Cruise Blues ~ Veterans Please Advise
You guys are great! I was pretty sure you'd have the answer for my PCD (a new one to me...cute)....you didn't let me down. I guess it's a little like a hangover....requiring something akin to the "hair of the dog" as an antidote. Hey...I can live with that! I'll be around now, living vicariously thru the next cruiser and sharing whatever I've picked up so far. That "so far" part is the rub, eh?....there much more to learn, so setting the groundwork for another cruise to get more experience is definitely in order. :-)) Thanks again.
I have to agree with previous posts, PCD is a terrible thing and the only cure is to BOOK ANOTHER ONE! I know, we just returned Jan. 2 from our New Year's cruise and in less than a week, my husband researched and booked the next one for next year. For now, all I can do is hang around these message boards...
