You know you've sailed Princess to much when?

Recommended Posts

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.

Or can explain why the Diamond is really the Sapphire and vice versa.

Yup!

 

Also agree when the crew reconizes you, knows your name, what you drink, and what you are going to order in the dining room.

 

Along with most of the others mentioned.

 

But I don't think there is such a thing as cruising too much. :-)

I guess I am an addict then. I am perfectly clear on the differences, from personal experience (except Emerald.)

...when you've been on Crown three times, and all three were code red. But you expected it would happen so you brought your own salt and pepper grinders.

....when you don't think any of the differences are obscure....

You mean the official meaning or the unofficial one? :D

I only know the official one. :)

When you post on Cruise Critic about all your personal crew member "friends" or when you stop thinking about how stupid and ridiculous Love Boat reruns really are.

When your earliest Princess memories are sitting on the bar and the bartenders feeding you M&Ms as a baby. Now they have the daiquiris waiting!

You know that dream where you can't find the classroom or your locker in school and you get all anxious about it? The other night I had the same dream but this time I couldn't find my cabin and the ship I was on wasn't a Princess ship. Same anxious feeling.

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". :rolleyes:

When you're on the Emerald Princess for 28 days, and realize that the three drinks and $30/day you gambled cost you almost $2000 over the course of the cruise...

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.

When you politely request that your grandchildren be named Star, Ruby and Diamond. The answer is NO, but it doesn't hurt to try.

When you long for the days the Sun class ships were the largest in the fleet
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...

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.

When the waiter you had on your first Princess Cruise is now a Maitre D'.

 

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.

You have figured out the Trident grills secret plate code

 

 

 

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!
