You know when....

Thought this would be fun, 


You know when you have been a your share of cruises when,,,,,


1. You don’t mind showing up an hour or so before final boarding so you just walk right in.


2. You have a snack before boarding to hold you to dinner, because you just don’t want to fight the buffet.


3. You will wait for dinner the first night during anytime dining to attempt to determine is it an early or late dinner crowd.


whos next?...

Bubba54 I really hope I never feel like I’ve had enough cruises so that I lose the urge to be one of the first on board.

I’m on vacation and lineups at the buffet or deli don’t bother me at all.

Anytime dining means I can switch it up every night, just like everyone else, so the first night might not be a good indicator of how busy it will be.

Just my thoughts - I’m a rookie cruiser with only a handful of cruise experience. Big Smile

You find yourself buying white towels that don’t absorb, just so you can make every animal in the Towel Animals You Can do at Home book you bought on your first cruise.

You search high and low for a diner that makes Baked Alaska, just to remember the good old days.

You stop loosing the excitement of booking a new cruise

I pray that I never reach that point and do not foresee that anytime in the near future

You know where the best people watching spots can be found.


You know where the best quiet spots on ship can be found.

You go straight to the MDR instead of rushing to the Buffet on embarkation day.

Carnival’s MDR isn’t open for lunch on embarkation day, only the Lido buffets, Guys Burgers (where available), Deli etc.

Another reason to go Princess instead of Carnival!

That is one of the nice "perks" while cruising Princess.

Alfredo's (on the Royal class) is anotherLove
