But if you don't go you'll never know which are the best stores to shop at.

ACK! The Shopping Show or Shopping Lecture. Got sucked into that our first cruise and learned that we never wanted to have that experience again. We don't cruise in order to "shop".

When you go out to the horse stalls and while shoveling manure you constantly tell the horses that as soon as their cabin steward finishes tidying up, room service will deliver their meal.

But I do. Sun Princess was our first ship.

And cruise ships do frequently exhibit themselves in my dreams, most often favorably.

We know we've cruised too much when the offers that can't be refused for a low priced cabin aren't refused. Wait. No, that's what we do now...

You know you've sailed with Princess too much...

...when you later look back at your cruise and say to yourself, "Meh -- I don't need to do that again."

When you stayed in the same stateroom on 2 different trips on the same year and you have a new stateroom steward, Your new steward knows your names from the previous steward talking about you and hopefully in a positive way.

You start to wash your hands before entering a room anywhere that isn't on a ship.

Does it count if he was my first head waiter with Princess Cruises?? On my last cruise he was a Maître d’
He remembered me and I got a great table by a window.

Haha! I figured this one out my first visit to Trident Grill last week! Was standing in line and saw the order taker line up plates as she took orders. At first I thought “wow! Good memory!” And then I noticed the pattern.

When you turn down an invitation to visit the bridge and let your husband take a friend instead. . .
When you pass on attending the Captain’s Party
When you start wanting the auction “art” on your walls at home
When you have a dozen leftover casino chips in your junk drawer
When you don’t buy any more branded merchandise
When you have hit Elite and there are no more loyalty perk mountains to climb so you start cheating via a status match with MSC. And don’t feel (too) guilty
When you and your husband fight to grab and read the Princess mag when it arrives
When you treat The Cruise Atlas like the bible it is.

I love Princess!
