Default Cruise Withdrawl

After a cruise-a-month for 2004, I am going thru Cruise Withdrawl.

I throw my towels on the floor and no one picks 'em up. I look at the prints in our home and no one gives me a glass of champagne. I put a card outside the bedroom and no one brings me coffee and danishes in the a.m.

I need to check into the Captian Steubing Center in Palm Springs!!

Man, I need to book something!!!

Harry

Oh, Harry!
How terrible! What can we do to help you out? Looks like you'd better book a new cruise soon so you can start planning on what to do in port :o)

Book another one, Harry. I'll think of you slaving away when I'm buzzing around London and then enjoying my transatlantic jaunt to NYC!

I agree with Sharon, we are supposed to feel sorry for you?! Well, I do, if you are used to it......but, don't I remember that you are one who leaves your cabin clean for your steward? I am remembering a thread from quite awhile ago, I thought you were one who even makes your bed before leaving the cabin. I could be wrong.......

Our last one was in August of last year, and my kids have been bugging me to death to go on another one, but not some measly 4 or 5 day one! It has to be 7 days, which is fine with me! We gotta come up with the dough first....

Anyway, booking another cruise is the sure cure to your cruise blues! Go ahead and do it!

JOY

No sympathy Harry. You have been on three cruises in the last three months if I have it right. Some of us have not cruised for 9 months and don't have another booked until September (some of us being ME).
However, if you want to still feel like you are on a cruise I suggest the following.
1) as you enter the bathroom , step up as if you were stepping over that little lip by the door.
2) block off about two thirds of your shower stall , to the point where you can't bend over to pick up the shampoo bottle if you drop it.
3) Just throw the towels out the window . You won't have to wash them, but, it could get a little expensive.
4) Order take out delivered EVERY NIGHT.
5) roll up a towel or sheet and put it down the middle of the bed to recreate the little valley where they push the two twins together.
6) hang the little card on the door knob at night. Maybe noone will bring breakfast , but, you can go to sleep thinking someone might.
7 Put the furniture in your bedroom closer together so it will feel more like the limited space of a stateroom.
8 Put two orange life jackets on the top shelf of your bedroom closet.
9 once a week put on the life jackets and go outside and stand real close together just outside whatever door or window you would use to exit during a fire.
10 Every evening play steel drum band music , and drink a cocktail with an umbrella in it. Lean on a railing somewhere and stare out into the distance.
11 find a very expensive place to get your portrait taken .
12 Twice a week , put on your tuxedo for dinner.
13 Go to a casino every night after dinner.
14 Go to an all you can eat buffet late every night.
15. Go out and put a towel, a book and a pair of old shoes on your neighbors lawn chairs and yell at him if he moves them to sit down.
16 play bingo every night. Quit when you have just one more space to fill and pretend someone else just yelled Bingo.
Maybe someone else can think of more.

Poor Harry!

Turn up your heat to 85 degrees, get out a good book and sit around in your bathing suit.

Invent a "drink of the day" and INSIST that everyone visiting your home have one!

Pretend your credit card is a sign and sail.....

Go to a flea market and buy something you totally don't need as a "souvenir."

Make Art dance during dessert

And BOOK ANOTHER CRUISE...

I know that pain, Harry! For the first time in 2 years, I'm a man without a countdown!

Thus, I feel lost. I woke up 3 times last night wondering why the engines had stopped. I looked out the window, and was momentarily surpised to see a snow covered street instead of a frothy wake. And I find myself flushing twice, because I only hear a "baaaa," but not a subsequent "wooosh!" I even forgot to make my coffee last night--as if expecting to find it on the Lido deck.

Oh the excruciating pain of life ashore!

Steve

Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...

Papabill on the suggestions ... I especially liked the shower tip. Oh and loved Dorothy's suggestion of creating a drink of the day and insist everyone have one.

Harry
