One of the things I adore about cruising is that my husband (the introvert) and I (the extrovert) can both find happiness, still share a tiny room for quite a few days, and still spend time together.
Just so we're on the same page - to me introvert means DH needs some alone and quiet time to recharge. And extrovert to me means I need to be around people to get my batteries recharged.
Some vacations just overwhelm my husband with too much non-stop activity. And some would make me irritable and feeling confined.
We've found some good ways to meet both of our needs on cruises, which I'll post in a response. But I thought other people may have their own ideas too.
So anyone else with a "mixed marriage" of introvert and extrovert? What have you done to bridge the gap?
yes they really travel with us, and yes, my husband does have the patience of a saint
