So does anyone else just have a full on mental breakdown and book a cruise? Nope? Just me? That’s cool.
The conversation with Ashley-Michelle on January 15th when I woke her up with a phone call:
ME: Okay, I’m having a meltdown, do you think you’ll have cruise money by this deadline?
HER: Yeah, for sure.
ME: Okay cool because I already booked us on this cruise leaving May 18th.
We are currently 96 days away from our sailing date and it’s becoming very obvious to me that everyone in my life is already sick of hearing about my trip. I have a feeling that it’s because I have no stopped talking about it since I hit the “BOOK” button.
Despite my countdown, I’ve actually been pretty quiet but I just booked our drink package (always get the drink package) and some other minor things for our trip and now my excitement is revitalized. It has been a particularly shitty week (more on that to come eventually) and I need something to keep my head above water. So I snagged a deal on stuff.
Of course, now I’m trying to convince my sister that we need to cruise together again in August since there’s some decently priced trips then. Maybe Ashley-Michelle and I will just go again. Who knows. I’ve got a savings account dedicated to my next cruise. They usually offer pretty good deals if you book on the ship so we might do that. And by “might” I mean we already have a sailing in mind that we want to book in January of next year.
So I guess the moral of this story is… be prepared for a lot of posts about cruising because lord knows I’m addicted and super annoying about it!
