    Floski got a reaction from ehw51 in Purchase Cruise Planner Items or Hold Off?   
    Our next sailing is 11/29, which I re-booked due to our April cruise cancellation.
     
    I'm so desperate to sail again, but now I'm really losing my elan for it.  Most people fully
    expect all of November and probably December to be postponed, so I'm just not in a 
    hurry to buy any of my cruise planner or non-RC excursions.  I guess I'm just "cruise depressed".

    I feel like this isn't talked about a lot and I agree 100%. I've cruised solo and with others and the same with land vacations. The resorts in some countries are awful with the staff following you and making unwanted advances...and in my case, I didn't feel comfortable going to the managers because I was afraid of some sort of retaliation.
    Never felt this way on any of my cruises, I've always felt safe walking around the ship.
    For me, I'll always choose to be by the water. I grew up on the water, it's my happy place. Add just about everything else that has already been mentioned and it's a perfect vacation.

    I get away and 100% relax.  
    I get away from my house, my job, politics, having to feed the animals, driving....yadayadayada...
     
    And one thing that has always stood out for me - the crew members treat me like I'm somebody,
    which is so rare these days.  They are unfailingly courteous, friendly, and respectful - as I am to them.
     
    I've only been on 4 so far, but I'm as hooked as I can be - I would cruise right now at 11:30 on Friday 
    night in the middle of a pandemic if I could.  Just love it.

    I'll repeat pretty much what others have said
    it's a way to totally get away from work and problems, etc it's a way to have complete family time (no internet for us so we really just enjoy our time together) no cooking, cleaning and laundry (well ok...laundry will be waiting when we return but none to be done during the week) so much to do for all of us, adults and kids, between the amenities (swimming, mini golf, rock wall, waterslides, zipline, laser tag, sky pad, etc etc depending on the ship) and the organized activities (e.g. scavenger huts, trivia, dance classes, games such as giant jenga, etc etc) great food selection and love the sit down every night excellent entertainment and variety every single night (broadway shows, musical acts, comedy type shows, etc, then fun things like Love & Marriage, Quest, Battle of the Sexes, etc) yummy fun drinks different music playing in the evenings (schooner bar, other areas along the promenade) crew is generally excellent, smiling, happy excellent ambiance...I love just waking and exploring the ship, looking at the art work on the walls and around the ship, etc relaxing...nothing better than going for a walk and watching the water move by (will often just watch the wake at the back) and seeing different places for a day I really don't think any other vacation even comes close.
