cruise mood: the desire to be on a cruise, the feeling of being on a cruise, and the funk that inevitably sets in when you return from a cruise.
My name is Anne and I am a cruise addict. If I won the lottery, I would talk my employer into allowing me to work remotely and permanently move into a stateroom with my husband and our three cats. I grew up addicted to “The Love Boat” and was green with envy when my parents when took a cruise to the Mexican Riviera on the original Pacific Princess in 1977. 30 years later, I experienced my first cruise when my husband and I took the same Mexican Riviera cruise aboard the Dawn Princess for our anniversary. The second we boarded the ship, I was hooked.
Several cruises later, we find ourselves constantly planning our next embarkation and craving the feel of the rocking ship. While Princess is our go-to line, we have enjoyed a Celebrity cruise and experienced a taste of Holland America. We don’t cruise to scale onboard rock walls or skate on ice rinks. All we need is uncrowded sun deck, excellent food, a warm pool, and an endless ocean view.
