Default You know you are a cruise freak if...

1. You keep hitting refresh on the port webcam to watch the ship you are booked on a year from now leaving port!

When you actually are thinking of putting up a LED 'Crown and Anchor' on you're house - As i'm thinking of doing in St. Thomas

You've been on a world cruise.

You've sailed every ship in a Cruise line fleets <--- Explains me well

You've never turned down a good offer on a cruise.

the only way a female would agree to go out on a date with Dave The Wave is if he agrees to take her on a Royal Caribbean Cruise in separate cabins (she in the penthouse top deck, he in an inside bottom deck)

Dave The Wave is such a cruise-a-holic, that he agrees to her terms but manages to get credit for two cruises instead of one which helps him achieve the next level in the Admiral program

When you have a fellow cruise junky that's been cruising RCL longer than you email a scan of their C&A pendant so you can take your old gold to the jeweler and get one made for your wife.

Yes, I did that!

You get depressed thinking about the fact that AFTER you take the 3 cruises you have booked, you won't have anything booked!

....you've picked half a dozen "must-do" itineraries in the latest brochure (with your favourite highlighted and left somewhere where your OH will accidentally find it)

....and you've priced them

....and double-checked whether you can get cheaper airfare by shopping around

....and you're wondering if you have enough holidays from work to do Alaska, the Med and Caribbean in 1 year

....AND if you have enough pay from work for all of this

I like this thread!

You have an entire wardrobe that expands regularly of Cruise Clothes/shoes

You think about what you would be doing at this "time" if you were on a cruise. It's 7:58...I'd be getting ready for breakfast up on deck

Dreadlock: I have some cruise clothes/shoes too. (I hesitate to wear them on a daily basis, never know when I am going cruising again/so they are in the "cruise section" of my closet, right next to my "vegas section" with my suitcase and carryons )

You know you are a cruise junkie when you are afraid to delete the emails from Carnival, Royal Carib and Princess - just in case you decide you can book that cruise afterall.......

You save all your cruise documents as if you will read them again. You have a collection of Daily Compasses and can't throw them away and you save all of your Sea Pass cards!

Dave - I do that too! Some bits - like the sea pass card - go into my scrapbook but the rest are in a drawer never to be looked at again but I can't bear to throw them away.

when you can't have a normal conversation without mentioning, "when we were on a cruise". And even sadder, when you go christmas shopping your looking at things for your next cruise. quincy.

Good I am "NORMAL" I too have all my passports, sail&sign cards, room keys and placemats; several fanny packs, several key rings and souvenier glasses. I thought it was a sickness. Hello, my name is Marty and I am a cruisaholic....
