hello all! i just joined this site because i'm going through some serious cruise withdrawal. i just got back from a baltic cruise on the star princess on 7/24 and i still can't shake it off. this had only been my 2nd cruise. the 1st one i took was in the mediterranean on the now defunct crown odyssey (orient lines) in 2002. i've been doing land tours (europe and africa) in between and i tell ya, i much prefer cruising. it is so much more fun and convenient. i usually get over my vacation euphoria in about two weeks but i can feel this one lasting longer. reading the forum makes me feel so much better because i'm not alone on this. anyway, what do you usually do to get over the cruise blues? thx. all and i look forward to reading and participating in the discussions.
