With this ten day cruise we recognize familiar faces in the passengers too, on each cruise we ran into people we had sailed with in the past. This ten day voyage is popular with many die hard cruisers and many do it as a back to back and many also do it for longer. This creates a unique dynamic on board, many more elite members than on a normal seven day voyage and from what we gather from talking to many of the crew a lot more demands.

When sailing for a few cruises you get into your routine you find yourself visiting the same areas around the same time every day. You get to know the crew by name, and they know your name as well and often if you are late or don’t stop by one day they comment on how they missed you or how they were concerned about you.
As we walk the halls we get a common comment “oh you are still on” or “are you staying on another voyage”. The ship soon feels like home and the passengers that come and go each voyage are like guests and we find ourselves assisting with answering questions on directions the first few days.

We have now completed our 36th Princess Cruise, seems like just yesterday we were aiming for that Platinum card. We know we are loyal to Princess, and sure we have tried other lines and we may try them again, we know deep down that we are staying with Princess.

As the voyage comes to an end we know we have not only gained a few pounds but we have gained numerous friends. But not just friends but family, our Princess family has expanded.

So when people ask us why we love to cruise, it is easy – it is like seeing family again.
