I haven't sailed anywhere near as much as 99% of the users on this site have. That being said, on my last cruise there was someone waiting in line at guest services and he saw me and mentioned how long the line was taking for a simple question he had. So I asked him what it was and was able to help that he got out of line (he wanted to know when the schedule was available for the next day and I mentioned it was probably already waiting in his cabin as his cabin steward probably left it there while he was at dinner). He noted this was his first cruise and didn't realize that. At that point I felt a little more comfortable with my knowledge learned here and what little cruising experience I had.
So my question is at what point do you feel like you're no longer a new cruiser? There is a ton of information that I'm still learning and that's just about one cruise line. It almost seems like it would take multiple cruises on various lines to really feel like I was a seasoned cruiser
Adding: it wasn't until my second cruise and after reading here that I realized room service was an option. By the third cruise I figured out there was a "fast pass" program for getting on and off the ship. I wonder what the 10th or 20th cruise will be like
