So my mind (of course) is on my upcoming cruise, and then I see all the happy posts of cruisers off today, tomorrow, or next week... Made me start to think what would the stages of cruising and cruise addiction be... Similar to the stages of grief, but for cruising. So it might be something like:

 

Obsessing (Constantly looking for the next cruise deal)

Saving (to pay for the cruise)

Researching (the ship, destinations and everything about the company)

Anger (That you are not on the cruise)

Anxious (as the date approaches)

Excitement (That the day has come)

Depression (When you disembark and come back to the real world)

Back to Obsessing.....

 

 

What would your stages be?
