You are sitting at home imagining sitting by the pool on a floating vessel at sea with the cool air blowing through your hair. While you are sitting there, you don’t have a care in the world. But, then you wake-up. Are you tired of dreaming of your first or next cruise? Well, here are some signs that it might be time to go ahead and book your next voyage!

1. You walk past a swimming pool and imagine it being the pool on a ship. Maybe I’m the only one who does this, but I know that’s a sign it’s time for me to book another cruise.

2. You are drinking out of your cruise glasses at home! You don’t want to just throw those cruise line drinking glasses you paid for away, so you bring them home and drink your favorite beverages from them. Obviously, it’s a sign it’s time to book a cruise.

5. The screensavers and desktop on your computer and phones are all cruise related. Admittedly, I am one of those who is able to daydream about a cruise each time I close a window on my computer. Therefore, I never get tired of the view of Castaway Cay!

6. You try to duplicate the drink and dessert recipes from your last cruise. Believe it or not, you can find duplication recipes from the cruise lines on their official pages.
