Cure for Boredom

Got bored a little bit ago so started looking at the cruise line websites. Saw a cruise that looked interesting (10 day Southern Caribbean) on Princess at a decent rate.

Also offered $400 OBC for the cabin.

And I have 2 future cruise credits (prepaid $100 deposit +$100 OBC for $100).

And a cabin I really want to try (top passenger deck, front center).

 

Needless to say, I booked it for next April. Only 366 days to goLove

Boredom can be expensive...........  Sounds like a great trip,  I hope you enjoy it.   When I get bored I tend to turn to Vacationstogo to look up all the cruises and dream of taking one of each.  Boredom is how I found the Transatlantic cruise I did a couple years ago from San Juan to London.  Last weekend I was bored and went to the outlet mall with friends just to kill time and walk around.... I did not intend to do anything but walk around and I ended up with 3 pairs of shoes a new Lazerjet printer.   Boredom can be expensive.   Big Smile

I'm waiting for the extreme boredom of retirement before I look at Trans-Atlantics, and the shopping here is hosted by Hoover (it sucks).

Now to start looking at reviews and completely overanalyzing my decisionBig Smile

I have a Happy Place on my computer. When bored,"seldom" or Stressed "often" I go to cruising site. This site has pictures, video clips and cruise ships. Other workers and friends often drop by to de-stress. It works. And it is cheaper than shopping......

Way to go BD.

I do the same but rarely do I get to take advantage of good findings like that. Between budget and work and already having a cruise booked for next May I can only dream and drool. But it does help to pass the time.

Dreaming and drooling is what keeps us semi sane when working.   Before retirement I kept some photo's in my office from past cruises...... A photo taken sitting on the beach in on the sea of Cortez under an umbrella with a bucket of ice cold bucket and shrimp cocktails looking out to the blue ocean was my "happy place" to take my mind back to when work became..... well when it became to much work.  I also had photo's from Europe on my desk but for some reason that beach turned into my happy memory of relaxing and no cares in the world.  The cruise to the Sea of Cortez was one of the worst cruises I have been on because of the poor food and lack of service on board (thanks NCL) but the ports and friends I went with keep the ports as good memories.

 

My boredom will get cured next week when Im back on a ship.....then time to start planning the next one.

I look at pictures of Bora Bora. OMG!Big Smile

Three cruises set?!? I can barely make a decision on  one! lol... Wish I can just "stumble" on these great deals and pull the trigger lol

I just booked another one too. I had a less than stellar Mothers Day, so I booked a 3 day-er with Royal for mothers day for 2017. Friday, Sat, Sun and return on Monday. ALL BY MYSELF! Wont be bored next year at "Mothers Day".Nervous

in between cruises, I live vicariously through this website.  It does help stem the desire somewhat but I cannot wait to set sail again in Oct 2016
