Anyone else addicted to this website. I found myself checking it every day. 2 more weeks until sailing. I don't know what I am going to when I come back.

Join the club. It's a great place find information, chat cruising and while away your off time until the time you stroll up the gangway.

Not only is this site addictive, but so is cruising!!


When you get home -- start planning another cruise.

Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement!

Heck!! Since I've retired, I find myself checking two-three times everyday !! (2-3 HOURS at a time) ! I'll find myself silently saying to myself, 'No, I won't ! I will NOT check back but ONE time today ! I won't !!' But, after an with drawl of 2-3 hours, or so I find myself sitting here wondering what's new on CC. Next thing I know I'm reading the Last new post or Ask a 'Cruise Question' Honest folks, I'm doing better, really I am ! I've cut beck to just reading the replies posted TODAY !! Baby steps, I know, but I GOTTA have a 'little taste, it takes a long tme to kick THIS 'habit' !! LOL :P ( YOU, cruise and CC addicts KNOW what I mean!)

Glad to read I'm not the only compulsive person I'm leaving on a vacation to Europe Sunday (not a cruise) and am glad I'm going to Lithuania where the Internet is great and I can check Cruise Critic at least every other day! I do have two cruises to look forward to in July and August, though

I am on cruisecritic every day, at least one! But that is because I have a cruise booked. I tend not to visit when I don't have one booked or am not really thinking about booking one. That may change! I need to always have a cruise to look forward to!

I check almost every day - the roll calls for the cruises we have booked, the first couple pages of 'new posts' and often read cruisers reports/reviews for cruise lines, ships, and itineraries we might be thinking of booking.

I agree .... I am also addicted. Or obsessed, one might say. : ? )

I still read the threads/posts. I still put in my 2cents worth. Maybe too often. It's fun and I love all the questions. Many I would never think to ask, but am happy finding the answers to.

I am here every day. As soon as I sign out I go straight to the online TA website we use and check for price drops for the cruises we have booked.

Yup, self professed CC addict here! I go to the Floataway Lounge a lot and participate in a bunch of the word games. It helps keep my mind nimble (or at least that's how I justify logging onto CC so often!)
