Hello, My name is Gary.. I am a Cruiseoholic. I tried to be good but I just can not help it. I stopped by our TA today to see about booking a HAL cruise to Alaska. I booked the Spirit to Mexico again (Oct 18, 2009). We are still going on a HAL cruise to Alaska in 2009, but now our fall 2009 is booked.
Is there no cure?

Hi Gary. The fact that you have admitted your cruise addiction is a milestone. The best part of this addiction is that there is no recovery, nor a finite number of steps to complete.

< All together.>> Hi, Gary.

You're among friends. We're all struggling, although not very hard, with the same addiction. We have our own 12-step program, but it's the 12 steps you take to get up the gangway when returning to the ship from port. We have counselors. Travel counselors, but they're counselors all the same. They won't let us get into trouble by booking the wrong ship.

It's good to be among friends. You'll always have a place here with us, your own kind.

Thank goodness!!



Sandy

Gary, I feel your pain. I want to recover but fear I will never be able to. I need to hit the lottery to over come my addiction. Once I have hit, I can book as many cruises as I want to work through my problems.

We are all here for you! I'm glad you've kept your "Spirit"

Well it been almost 20 hours since I booked. My wife and I were talking last night. She is not looking forward to Christmas this year. Our youngest is on the East coast, with the Grandkids. Our oldest will be here a day, but then will be visiting the new in-laws. Our Middle son is also only going to be here a day.
The only solution to this is to book a cruise for the Holidays. So this afternoon it is back to the TA.....Will this never end I hope not.
I really blame the whole thing on Carnival!!! If their Military rates weren't so good, we would not go so often.
Thanks for the support Carnival!!!!

We're doing Christmas and New Year's on the Royal. Unfortunately, no discount. I'm so glad you've solved your wife's blues, and what a fantastic way to solve them!

Hello folks,
