I once went thirteen (13) months ashore without a cruise! It was the worst 13 months of my life! I'll never do that again! Even a short 1 nite cruise to nowhere is better than the long haul ashore!

My friends daughter is a dance captain aboard an an NCL ship-she has become an addicted sailor-despite many dance successes ashore with the professional and economic successes-she can no longer stand to spend anything more than a few months ashore between contracts! Would that I could be younger-I'd ship out on a moments notice! This is one addiction for which I am glad there is no real cure!

The only cure is to keep on booking them.

IslandCruz, you ar so so right when i get on a cruise ship i have the best sleep known to man, i cant explain why the sleep is so so good. Sometimes i have to make myself get out of the bed and remind myself you are on vacation, get up and see the other parts of the ship.

Some of the reasons we sleep so well is we are on vacation and NO WORRIES and maybe another is the beds are wonderful and we are on a CRUISE YEA!!!! Sorry got a little excited.

A cruise may be so addictive, because it is affordable, destinations are prearranged, simple to purchase, and paid in advance for the most part before you leave home. The cruise simply requires that I pack and make my way to the port. My luggage is managed for me and reappears in my cabin. I unpack once for multiple destinations and the fun begins. I can do what I want whenever I desire, or do nothing at all. I travel SOLO for the most art and can feel very safe as guest aboard the ship. Carnival Cruise Line offers a reasonable rate for a SOLO traveler to travel several times a year without going bankrupt. I enjoy being around people who are all happy, relaxed, and stress free. The cruise staff remembers my name and they are generally happy to take care of their guest. I discovered on my first cruise how relaxing a frozen drink can be at 2 PM. I can actually purchase one of each kind of frozen daiquiri over seven days. In addition, the bartenders can create a combination of several flavors of frozen daiquiris and put them into one glass, just for me! The freedom of sipping a beautiful and refreshing drink and bathing in the sun is awesome. Deciding to have a two hour detoxifying massage is the bomb. The captain invites me to the past guest reception for some fantastic drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Each time I cruise I get extra perks that keeps me coming back despite my addiction.

I just love all of it: shore excursions, frozen drinks, looking out and seeing nothing but more water, looking out and being able to see a new port in view, delicious ready to eat food, taking photographs that capture my smiles, hearing the sounds of the casino, the beautiful live shows, able to watch an entire movie without interruption, and waiting to go ashore at yet- another port.

Sonny, I'm not sure we have enough screen space to list all of your past fixes in a single post. You are living in a state of denial.

Well why is a cruise so addictive??
maybe the five star food
the great shows
don't really know but what I know is way better than staying for work and beside have you seen the caribbean ocean under the stars with your wife??
well maybe is the romantic getaway or even the great service but for me, is more like live a dream and getting in touch with what life is all about...

But I am going to personally research this and see if there truly is an answer hahah..It may take us a few dozen more cruises, but with help I know I will find an answer out there..hahhaha...We just love it!
