Default Tip of the Day (how sick am I?)

So, I am cruising in 6 days with 2 of my best friends. They haven't cruised, so there have been emails flying back and forth.

I have started sending them (since day 10) a daily countdown with "5 days" (or whatever appropriate day) in large, 24 pt, type. And then I give them the "Dorothy Cruise Tip of the Day."

It's soooo much fun to cruise with first timers! I can't wait.

And p.s.
Many of my tips are not just from my own experiences cruising, but from the many CM folks who have shared their experiences and tips over the years on these boards. Thanks guys. And (almost) bon voyage.

dorothy

You can never know everything about cruising. I was a seasoned cruiser when I joined this site and thought I "knew it all" Wrong!! I have learned so much more from everyone here. Finding this site has made my cruise experiences much more enjoyable just by knowing the folks here. Not to mention the fun that has been added to my life in the form of the dinners I have attended. Cruisemates is not just about cruising it is about lasting friendships. Have a great cruise and be sure to "train" those first timers right. Bon Voyage.

That's me, Michael!!

And I think there is a possibility I am driving one of my friends crazy. But nothing that sailaway won't cure.

don't forget the tip of the day is to pack 2 more pairs of underwear then days away ..just in case you are out to sea for 2 more days then plan, so you will always have a clean pair in the morning

earl, I enjoyed your pics "Ships in Juneau" in the photo gallery. Interesting seeing the ships jockeying around for their places in port.
