Default Anticipation!

Remember the old song by Carly Simon? Anticipation? How do you handle anticipation before your cruise? I've already packed, watched all the cruise line videos, read the reviews, and now I am digging out the cruising CDs and listening to some reggae/soca/salsa/steel drum music. 4 days and counting!

I drink myself into a stupor every night

I look at pictures from last year's cruise...I do heavy house cleaning (so I come home to a really clean home) and while doing so I blast all the latest CD's of the Jazz artists I will see on the cruise....I remember to tell all the folks that I regularly see on my daily walk that I will be gone for 10 days on my cruise, so they don't worry about not seeing me on my normal routine...on the Sunday before I leave , I go to Church and pay my tithes in advance for the 2 Sundays that I will miss..I special order my cruise scrapbooks from Freemont CA, so they will be here when I get home...I make sure I pack 3 extra days of my medicine just in case...I look st Carnival's menu cycle online to remind me what I will be eating nightly next week....make sure that both my neighbors can locate their copy of my spare key and know details on how to reach me on the ship

Outside of that, I don't do anything speciali

I pack at the last minute. I can do so because I pack light. I only anticipate getting onboard and getting unpacked so I can begin to enjoy myself
