I have it bad, post-cruise depression. I've only been on one cruise, and 90% of my time is spent, thinking, dreaming, and researching cruise ships. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get over this form of depression, PLEASE help me, or my mom is threatening to take me to a shrink!! How can I get over cruises, by not booking another one, until next year??
Please Help, you are the only people who understand me, my friends don't because they have never been on cruises before.
hey i totally know how you feel...its been over a year since my frist crusie and im still depressed...i dont think theres really a way to get over your first cruise expierience....the best thing to do is continue to talk to the people you emt and look at the pictures from your trip....sure it might get hard sometimes but theres gonna be otehr cruises and you shouldnt beat yourself up over one crusie....adn trust me my parents threatened to take me to a shrink too...just dont show them u care and keep it a secret if it helps....you will alwyas remember the things that make u smile and youll never forget why you felt those things u felt but ya haha now i really have no point but haha ya i know how you feel and it sucks!
Oh i know, it sucks. I'm always like "well i should've this" etc. Yeah, what i did is a bunch of the ppl i met lived pretty close so we hung out shared pics, etc. If not, def talk online or on the phone. Trust me, eventually it'll just blur into a memory of a good vacation.
How sad.... your life in this country can't be all that bad. Think of all the starving and dying people out in poverty throughout the world, and you are complaining about the fact that your wonderful cruise vacation came to an end and you have to return back to your nice life in America. Iím not saying that it is wrong to be sad after a nice cruise ends, but just think how nice your life is compared to 95% of the world.
I used to feel that way after a cruise... when I was like 11 or 12, but I've matured since then. I just took my 25th cruise and right now it is the only time in the past 5 years that we have not had a future cruise booked (except the Celebrity Xpedition this summer). I hate to say it, but I'm kind of getting "cruised out".
i felt the same way after my cruise. the feeling will eventually go away. i didnt do anything but it went away by itself even thought it felt like it never would. i just looked at my pics alot and remembered that i was going on another cruise someday. so i looked forward to that
