Default How to know you are cruise obsessed

I just read a thread elsewhere on how to know if you are Disney obsessed...

"you look for hidden Mickeys at home."

"You mock people for asking what time the 3:00 Parade starts"

"You have a 'plan of action' for seeing both Epcot and the Magic Kingdom in one day.

So....

How do you know if you are Cruise Obsessed?

1. You drink out of your Carnival Soda Package tumbler at home.

2. You know the cost of a taxi from FLL to Port Everglades.

3. You can describe the differences between the Hyatt and the Embassy Suites in Fort Lauderdale

4. You have a cruise-specific packing check-list with duct tape and "over the door shoe rack"

5. Your have several partially used tubes of 50 SPF sunscreen and lip balm

YOUR TURN.......

You refer to that funny feeling as "not having your land legs yet"

You go to bed at night and don't understand why you are in the same port in the morning.

When you go to restaurant and realize you forgot to check the prices.

You resent having to make your own coffee first thing in the morning.

You forget how the dials in your own shower work

You still feel like the bed is moving at night

You refer to your master bedroom at home as the "Owners Suite".

Your wife asks what you want for breakfast and you say "I think I'll eat at the buffet this morning."

You walk in to a local bar and get totally confused when the bartender asks for cash instead of your cruise card.

Local bartenders look at you strangely when you ask for a Bushwacker.

And you kick yourself TWICE for arguing politics with Paul instead of reading cruise reviews.....

You have a "Ship On A Stick" on the fireplace mantle.

You gauge each major purchase on how many cruises you could take with the same money.

You know the GRT (Gross Registered Tons) of most cruise ships.

You can complete your cruise packing in less than two hours.

You use terms like fore, aft, starboard and port in normal conversation.

You have to sort through your t-shirt collection to make sure you don't pack a NCL t-shirt for a Carnival Cruise.

You actually own a tuxedo but haven't worn it in five years.

Take care,
Mike

When you sit down for dinner, you wonder why no one is handing you a linen napkin for your lap!

When you see a airplane and wonder which port it is headed to.
When you go to a art dealer and offer a opening bid
When you go to a restaurant and order 2 appetizers and 3 dinners and 3 deserts.
When you keep re-watching those old cruise videos you bought every week.
when you flush the toilet and expect a giant sucking sound to come out of it.
when you don't like your breakfast food hot anymore.
next!!!

When you "wake up" your computer each day, the first place you go is CruiseMates.

You're making a list of your very best Karaoke Songs for your next cruise.

You have to return to your favorite restaurant, and try to explain why you left without paying!

You're running out of room on your favorite hat for more "ship pins".

You're studying up on trivia, so that you can snag another 24 caret gold, plastic, piece of ship on a stick.
