How do we manage post-cruise depression?

This thread was sparked by Coaster's "What do you eat...?" thread. After a cruise, I eat everything because I am depressed the cruise is over. So sad! What are some ways to manage the blues after the cruise is over?

I come on here and turn green and get jelly at all the cruises others are going on. Then start looking at how I can swing another one and how soon and then start dreaming a lot. I also go through all the photos from the last cruise and find the nice scenic ones, then resize them to fit my screen and add them to my loop of background pics for my laptop. Looking at backgrounds of scenic islands and beaches in the sun helps me maintain my sanity on a daily basis.

Cruising really connects me to a happy place. Everybody needs that!

In order to avoid post-cruise depression, we always have our next, next cruise planned before we set sail on the next one! Sometimes we have a few future cruises already planned. Strictly to avoid those post-cruise blues of course! Big Smile

Yeah, that's why I have three booked.Wink (FYI: that was said with a tone of voice indicating I had not even thought of it and I liked the answer).Big Smile

This year we have 2 booked.

Immediately book your next cruise so you have something to look forward to. Depression solved.

Book another. Cruise!!!

I’ll let you know in 27 more days. Well, 28. We’re exhausted from the long drive home from the port. Yummy

Will post cruise depression have started by the time you arrive home?Surprised

We always try to have another one booked!
