What do you enjoy about cruising with newbies?

We always enjoy introducing people to cruising. Over the years we have introduced about 10 couples. Most have loved it and continue to cruise, a couple did not see the appeal.

One of the favorite things I enjoy is when the new folks realize they can order anything to everything on the menu. Then for the next few nights they have two entries and two desserts.

The absolute shock and awe when they first board the ship and see it all. Seeing the joy and wonder at each new thing they see. Like watching a kid on Christmas morning

Same here :) It's still my favorite part of the whole cruise for myself :)

I still display that look when I first board!

So do I ... so do I. Usually takes me a few days for the newbie eyes popping chin dragging to wear off .. lol

The I can try that too ? look in the MDR

Then the look of bewilderment when they can’t button their pants by the 5th day.

My favorite thing about being with newbies is, "seeing" the cruise with fresh eyes. So many things are common place for us, but watching new cruisers reminds us that it isn't common at all.

I've yet to be on the same ship twice, so everything seems new to me each time.

Luckily, I've many ships yet to sail.

Seeing new people trying to find there way back to there rooms or waiting for the full lefts

For me, it's just enjoying exploring the world with those I love!
