One of the most disappointing things about a cruise is that, not matter how long it is, it is always too short. I have found that the anticipation of the cruise is as much a part of the cruise as stepping on board the ship. I have been planning, dreaming, and talking about my March 25th cruise on Freedom of the Seas since Sept. of last year and yet I know that by mid-week of the cruise, its almost over and I have to face the realization that the months of yearning is coming to an end.
I guess that's what makes us plan our next cruise. And what makes us appreciate every second we are on our cruise. I CAN'T WAIT, counting the weeks, days and minutes til I arrive in Miami!
I guess I am expressing this for those of you who are on your first cruise. Remember that the months of anticipating your departure is as much a part of your cruise as finally arriving at the port! Anyone else feel this way????
We are scheduled to go on our 4th cruise and are just as excited as if it was the first time. My husband says he will not get excited until he is aboard the ship!!
I try and book in advance so we can look forward to another cruise very soon.
It seems that the time passes so quickly! One minute you are boarding and the next, you are leaving to go back home!! Then you get post partim (sp.) cruise withdrawal symptoms. Why is my bed still unmade, where is my 24/7 food, hwere is my different towel animal waiting for me when I get back to my room!!

It's very much like golf. Your last shot always seems to be great enough to make you plan your next outing. The cruise always seems too short and as you wait for your tag color to be called to leave the ship, you are visualizing your next trip at sea.

Robert: You are truly afflicted with cruise fever. I know the feeling, months of anticipation seem to crawl by, then you board and before you know it they're already giving the disembarkation talk.
My motto: always have more than one cruise booked, you always have something to look forward to.
Welcome to Cruisemates and enjoy the ride.
Take care, Steve
