Let the crazy pre-cruise dreams begin!

This happens to me every single time before we cruise. Just usually not this far before a cruise -- we don't sail until February!

In last night's dream, I managed to forget ALL our formalwear. In fact, I went to get ready for regular non-formal dinner, and realized I hadn't even packed anything other than very casual stuff. I was mortified, lol. Oh, and the elevator to get to our stateroom was the size of my living room.

I guess it's still less horrifying than the time I dreamt beofre one cruise that I had forgotten ALL my makeup...

I don't do this before regular Disney trips -- Heck, we leave for DLR a week from Friday, and our cruise isn't until February. I haven't had any crazy Disneyland dreams! Maybe it's because I know on a Disney trip that if I forget something, I can pretty easily go get another one somewhere, but on the cruise it's not like I could get makeup or a formal dress...

Just please tell me I'm not the only one, lol.

I'm 9 days out...about a month ago I dreamt that we forgot our Palo brunch resi.

That is the first that I can remember dreaming about any vacation. However, while planning my wedding, that was a different story.

I always have crazy dreams pre-cruise. Always.

Most recently, I showed up at Port Canaveral without one piece of ID. Nothing. No passport, no birth cert...nothing.

And I was in my pajamas

I have these dreams as well.

Mine usually involve me not being able to get on the ship. It docks in some sort of lake or river and I can see it, but it usually sails away without me. Our next cruise isn't until February and these dreams have already started.

I dreamt that I basically missed the entire cruise. As in, it was the last day I had no fun the entire week and I could not remember anything we did! I kept saying "We didn't do anything!" and my DH was like "Time to go home!"

I also dreamt they had a problem with the engines so they said everyone could go home and come back later. I didn't want to be at home and wanted to get back to the ship but my DH wanted to stay home and play video games!

LOL!! Okay, that would be worse... I could at least get on the ship, and just eat dinner at Topsiders or something. And not in my pajamas.

Thanks for making me feel less of a freak.

So funny! I had a dream the other night just because we priced out options (we aren't even booked yet!).

I had been reading about Panama Canal cruises AND reading threads about rough weather. So, don't you know it, I had a dream about sailing through the Panama Canal in 20ft seas (which makes no sense, since you aren't in a sea, but whatever!). The good news was, we never scraped the sides! The bad news was, the ship was rocking so much I was practically levitating half the time. Ha!

Before my last cruise I had a dream that the ship rolled over, as in all the way under and back up the other side. We were fine, though . We just kept on sailing as if nothing ever happened.

Maybe I should stop reading threads about bad weather ...

I had the SAME dream, and I was trying to find formal wear in the gift shop!

I guess it's still less horrifying than the time I dreamt beofre one cruise that I had forgotten ALL my makeup...

This actually happened to me on my sons Make a Wish Trip. I was so busy trying to make everything perfect for him, I left my entire make-up/toiletry kit in the car. All our pictures from the trip I look exhausted- which I was

This is funny b/c I had a similar dream to this one too, it was time to disembark and I was like, wait- I missed the whole cruise!
I guess my cruise nightmares are not as unique as I had thought. Our first trip I dreamed weekly that they we not going to let us on with just birth certs- I was so convinced, I was almost shocked when they let us on!
