Default How many cruisemates are cruise addicts?

In life, everybody has an addiction to something; for me it is cruising. I just don't feel complete unless I go on a cruise at least once a year. What a great addiction to have!

It is my only addiction, thank goodness! I also have to have one on the books or I'm just not a happy camper!

My first addiction is chocolate, but Cruising comes in a close second. Why do I have 3 cruises already booked and still looking to fill in the spaces

I am!

Sis and I were shopping today. As we looked at summer clearance we would say "This would be great for a cruise - but we don't have one booked."

I need a cruise in my future - but these home improvements are expensive!

Default I've only been on two cruises, but

...I consider myself addicted. I've already reserved two more, and am tentatively planning two more after that:

A retirement cruise to Buenos Aires, and then one of those three-month-plus world cruise's!

I'm also addicted to cigar smoking and collecting.

Notice I said "smoking and collecting" - not cigars. For me, it's not about the chemical/biological addiction to tobacco, but to the ritual and the art. There's just something about a fine, aromatic cigar - so much more pleasant than the odor of dirty diapers!

Here!

My friends (non cruisers) tell me you did so many cruises you will get sick of them. The more I cruise the more I want to cruise again and again.

I'm also uping my cruises to 2 or 3 a year instead of 1 a year.

True sign of an addict- needing more and more!

Yes I'm addicted too.

We love to go on cruises. Right now we have 2 booked for '09.
May not do them all...?
Maybe when the economy gets better we will book more.

Guilty! I've got to have at least one in the hopper or I'm not happy. Right now, me and the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) have three booked in the near future. Get tired of cruising? Not likely.

Dear Cruise Queen,
It took just one cruise for this wondeful addiction to start. I need my cruise fix every year! At least this is a great addiction. We have met some wonderful people on every cruise that we have taken.

I agree with you only on cruises do I meet wonderful people and continue to keep in touch by email even after the cruise is over.

Hi, my name is Larry...and I'm a Cruise Addict!

Thankfully, it's really my only addiction. Cruise #1 was under the heading of "OK...I'll try it". I went with a group and it was the first cruise for most of us. I knew that I'd like the locations...I'm a real beach bum (I live at the beach!) and love the Caribbean. My only hesitation was whether or not I would feel claustrophic being on the ship and whether or not I would be bored. The answer to both of those questions was a huge NO!

I love cruises. I do take other vacations but there is something about being on that ship on the water that does it for me. And the "ding" of the security machine checking my SeaPass is like music to my ears!

Like "skymaster" said...I've got to have at least one in the hopper or I'm not happy! That about says it. We have one coming up in October and then the next one is Oasis in August of 2010. We're already talking about how to fill in the gap in 2009!
