If you don't leave you can't come back.

Ever notice how the new, embarking passengers have clothes that fit better than those who are leaving?

Not necessarily. I lost 1 pound on my cruise last spring. I got a lot of exercise on the ship with all of the walking I did. Also, I ate healthy with lots of fish and fruit, and didn't eat any fried or junk food the whole time. I didn't skimp at mealtime either. I shoveled lots of food down my piehole, but for the mostpart, it was food that was good for me. I was expecting to gain a couple of pounds, but I didn't!

I thought the walk of shame was those that the ship was held for... you know... "Mr. Morrow... Mr. Tom Morrow... if you are on the ship please let us know."

I can't help it....from the second I step on the ship, I am in countdown mode until debarkation breakfast. It doesn't bother me for the first 4 days, but by day 5, I'm thinking, okay, only 2 days left.

On one hand, it's kind of annoying to never be free of that internal clock, but on the other hand, it forces me to enjoy every minute of the cruise...I've never gotten to the end of a cruise and thought to myself, "how did those 7 days go by so fast??!!"...because I was always aware of each and every day (well, except for that one time in Cozumel with the free margaritas all afternoon...some time definitely got away from me there.)

The key for me is to just have something to look forward to, even if it's not Disney. For our April cruise, we've got our June DVC vacation at OKW to look forward to. As for the end of that vacation....well, I haven't gotten that far yet.

If you are able to have another cruise booked before you sail, booking while on board is also great but our last 4 cruises where booked so far out we had at least one additional one in the waiting while traveling on anothe one.
DH always said that if we win it big in the lottery he would permantely book our favorite stateroom so it would always be waiting for us whenever we decided to cruise. Now we need to buy a lottery ticket!

I agree that for us it's not a walk of shame, however, whenever we leave WDW (or a Disney cruise) we adapt a line from John Donne/Ernest Hemingway..."Ask not for whom the Magical Express comes. It comes for thee." We always try to savor the moment that the ME (or cruise bus) pulls up to begin our vacation and we always feel sorry for those who are leaving and recognize that in a few days time it will be us.

I never get sad until I have to pack up. I hate that it's wasting my last night. It is faster packing up to leave then packing to go.

I just refuse to look the way of new cruisers arriving at the terminal.

It also helps to go to WDW for at least a day (or DLR if we're on the west coast) to help ease us out of the funk. Otherwise we're depressed for at least a month.
Yeah, that helped the 1st time I went on a cruise. I did the land and sea package. So just knowing that because the cruise was over didn't mean I was going home yet. However, not so much this time...

I don't find myself counting down until the cruise is almost over. We have done two 7 night DCL cruises so far. I go for the gusto and enjoy every bit of the cruise for the first 5 days or so.

Around day 5 I starting going into "countdown mode." That's when I start thinking "only a couple days left" and that it's time to start assembling things to repack in the suitcase.

The only cure for this is to book another cruise! And I am working on that really hard!
I will definitely look at booking another while on board. Maybe that will help. Thanks.

one last thing about the walk of shame (pain is a better description) when you exit the ship and are heading to get your luggage don't turn around as those signs with Mickey that say "see you real soon!" are double sided and say "welcome aboard" for the next set of cruisers....
Yeah, I'm more worried about the kids. This will be their first cruise. Thanks for the info. I will not be turning around on the way out. The pain will be too much.

Good to know I'm not alone. It will be a while after this upcoming cruise before we are able to go on another one. But who knows, maybe I will book a dummy date.

Agreed. I like this view SOOO much better on embarkation day.

Seeing the "See you real soon" sign makes me so depressed. However, the pic of the terminal makes me excited for the arrival.

Sounds like joining DVC would be a great option.

You have great restraint. I do not plan at all on holding back. YOLO!!!

Well said. I feel the same will happen to me. But as a member of DVC, at least you know that one way or another you will be experiencing disney magic sooner than later.

I do not look forward to packing back up at all. LOL seeing others about to enjoy the same vacation you did depresses me.

I don't think it's an uncommon feeling at all, to be thinking about something being finished before it's even started.

I started my online "life" when newly engaged, and after all the planning that brides (and some grooms) do for their weddings (and remember, this is somewhat new, because the mother of the bride was generally the planner just a couple generations ago) it is EXTREMELY common to start a "and then the wedding will be over" line of thought that makes you sad. Of course you've got married life to look forward to, but "married life" isn't different to *everyone*, so you never know if it will feel new or just the same. And then there's the honeymoon you plan and look forward to, etc.

And with the intense Disneyland/world planning we do here, same thing.

So it's no surprise to be counting down and sort of already living in the last few days of the cruise. If it's any consolation, at least you're not alone.



As we are leaving DLR, WDW, or Universal Orlando, we are sad, but now we are happy for those arriving! Soon enough they will be sad like us, so it's happier to be happy for what we had and what they are about to have.

You need to become DVC owners... no more walk of shame, as you'll be "home" again soon!


It's great for those of us who compulsively plan Disney trips... can feed a year round obsession!
