Knowing what's good on the menu, and for the pool, taking off any sign on a lounge that says "reserved", also moving lounge chairs to your specified location, as one from one side, another from another side and placing them next to each other at a "special location", all the time a Princess pool "guard" looks at you and says nothing

No such thing as too much, unless I'm broke, but I'll play.

When all your "grocery totes" have a sea witch logo on them.

Love those totes ! I take them to my crafts class with all my crating supplies in them, and those totes are real conversation-starters.

Can never have too many days on board Princess. Cruising is really, really fun. - EBC

When you can't recall which ship you're on, but you know where everything is because it's in the same place on all the Princess ships (except Regal/Royal -- haven't been on them or the small ships).

Actually, you are a true Princess addict if you can recite the tiny obscure differences between the Grand/Golden/Star version, the Diamond/Sapphire version, and the Crown/Emerald/Ruby version of the Grand-class ships.

Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.

When you go to the dining room the first night and the headwaiter remembers you by name, as do several of the waitstaff!!
