Gaze longingly (and repeatedly) at your cruise photos. Or even better -- write a trip report so you can relive the experience!

I took my gopro camera and made a movie. Its only been a month and I wish terribly we were back on the cruise still having fun. I don't have a cure, but hoping there is one. HAHAHA!

Book another.
Pass on your experience to those who have never cruised and help them plan their vacation.
Picture of the day thread.
Write a trip report.
Plan a whole fictional trip just for fun.
Share the mania, talk someone else into trying out a Disney cruise (my DH says I've created several "monsters" by doing this. In fairness I warn everyone cruising is addictive before their first cruise.)
Listen to old podcasts about the different ships (DIS Unplugged has several as do other Disney podcasts.)
Write a blog.
Research different itineraries and ports of call.
Create a cruise bucket list (TA, Hawaii, Alaska, Norwegian Fjords, etc.)
Start a cruise savings fund.
Surprise your significant other with a "just the two of us" short cruise while friends/family keep your children for a long weekend.
Name your pets after characters in the stage shows.
Develop opinions on all the hot button issues on the cruise forum on the DISboards (whether you choose to jump into the fray on those threads or not is another matter.)
Redecorate your bathroom/bedroom/house nautically.
Make an album, memory book or self publish your trip report using blurb or similar.
Start buying likely looking items for future FE gifts.

I think that's all the things we've done to stretch the Magic. Anyone have ones we've missed?

I am right there with you! We took our first cruise in May and LOVED it!! I think I talk about it every day. I kept telling my DH that we needed to book another one but we both know we really can't afford it. I printed out a bunch a pictures and put them in my photo book I bought on the cruise. (First pics I have actually printed in forever!) I enjoy looking at them ever few days. Also this site has helped a lot. Then we got a 10% off coupon in the mail and I couldn't let it go to waste so we booked another one for the same time next year. It is only a 3 day so it was easier to afford. Now I keep pushing to change it to a 5 day. LOL!

Good luck! It is SO VERY hard to live like that for a few days and then come back to real life.

Oh and you tube videos are great too! There are a lot of them!

Meant to also say my husband will be disappointed to hear this! He's hoping I'll stop talking about it once we actually go on the cruise!!! He's in for a surprise!

I always make sure that I have something else booked up for when I return, just so that I have something to look forward to, even if it is a few months away! It's usually a quick weekend away somewhere, but then I can start planning that on my return. :D

I think this site is a great way to get past your cruise and looking towards another. I enjoy getting friends and co-workers to take cruises and like talking about cruises with anyone on this site. And of course, book a cruise so you have something to look forward too. Like us 68 days till San Juan Cruise.

What about kid's names... I'm stuck on Ariel Willow myself...(I also like the name Galaxy but no one else seems to?)

I was just telling my sister that we need to get our next Vegas trip booked soon because I need that to look forward to when I get back from Alaska next month

I generally have two cruises booked at any one time (I book them right when the window opens so they are usually really far in advance). So I have October 2015 already booked to look forward too. But that is just too far away

I'd consider Anne-Marie, but we're done on kids.

We may just be getting started sometime soon. Not an Anne-Marie fan, but very happy with Peter Pan. Don't think that will work though... Also have to consider the possibility of doubles. Tweedle and Dum ain't happenin.
