We love cruises for something Sandy touched on in his post. We have the freedom to mix and match excitement/adventure with relaxation/laziness based on our mood at the time (with everything conveniently at our fingertips). For us, that's tough to beat!
I'm glad cruising isn't for everyone--the ships are full enough as it is. Brad, I truly enjoyed your version of a cruise experience. I can only imagine our great it would be with a ship full of people with your attitude. However, I usually see people smiling and having a great time. It's really easy to find the unhappy cruisers because they're so far out of place.
You're absolutely right, Sonny and thank you for the complement. You can usually see the sour look on their faces and often times they don't have any tan at all. I am guessing that that is because they spend most of their time on their cruise standing in line at guest services to launch volleys of ridiculous complaints.
I just loved your post because that is exactly how I feel about cruising too. I am always looking for the next one! I guess I am always surprised when someone tells me that their cruise was just ok. My next cruise is what keeps me happy at the Salt Mines )
