LOL You have peaked my curiousity!HAHAHA! I was going to say its really no big deal, but you kinda hit the nail on the head here:
Now my only problem is my tendency to over-think things. I will spend the next several days trying to decide what to title the thread, but I'm sure I will probably just go basic with the ship name and date like most of the others. lol Anxiety can be a real hurdle sometimesI "think" that people tend to think that Im a weirdo at first because of my attention to detail and dispersing of information. I like to be precise and prepared, and most people (especially on vacation) are go with the flow. Lots of people dont know what to do with a lot of info. Im not always so "Type A," but planning and details are my forte, and without them, I sometimes get lost in the fluff! Once I get all the basics covered, I tend to loosen up and become "fun!"
I tend to cruise last minute (3-5 days before the cruise), so by the time I get to the ROLL CALL half of the participants have been posting for a year and a half ! ! They know the names and ages of each others kids for Pete's sake ! ! Somebody has already made special shirts which everyone is supposed to be wearing (either that or stupid beads) and invariably they want to have the Meet'n'Greet on the day of the cruise. Dumb idea, IMHO. Everybody is pooped from traveling. Many want to explore the ship, get something to eat, check out their cabin, go to muster drill, and be topside for the sailaway. Too much to do that same day.You hit the nail on the head. After a dozen cruises we know that plans
The best Meet'n'Greets I've attended were the first sea day morning around 10:00 on the Lido where there is a bar for the drinkers, food close by and a unique spot where everyone can sit, eat or drink and will know that these are Meeters and Greeters.
Don't often attend these any more.
