Only 5 more sleeps although you sound too excited to actually sleep. Check your list and make sure you have everything you need. Then after you've closed the suitcases, just enjoy. As long as you have your docs and ID, you can get on the ship.

You will love the Fantasy! She's a great ship. And it's perfectly normal to get this excited before a cruise... it just means you've joined the ranks of us "addicted!"

It is normal. I get quite obsessive those last few days before I get the "I forgot to pack" something trepidation. I verify everything that's packed, and that evrything IS packed. I put the bag containing our documents, passports, etc. near the door and it's the first thing to get loaded into the car. As much as I love those boat rides, I hate those last few days.

Just make sure to time your last panic, and deal with it, before your last sleep before hitting the road. Don't let the last panic interfere with that needed sleep. Enjoy the dream.

I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!


Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!

I react in a way very similar to SeaHunks when it's just days before the cruise.

Trixie, you will do fine. As long as you have your docs and your passport, like Tweety said, you'll be alright. Like most of us, you'll probably find that you have packed way too much and could have left half the stuff at home.

Enjoy your precruise excitement and welcome to the club of the addicted.

I love the excited feeling I get before whatever trip I am about to take. Two weeks ago I went to Las Vegas and didn't accomplish anything useful the week before!!
