Impressions of a cruise virgin before the big night

I have never been on a cruise but am about to change my lifelong status with a short 3-day cruise on Princess between Los Angeles and Ensenada.

Cruise’s have always felt like cheating. In my twenties I considered cruises as mediocre entertainment for the spoiled and bloated. Not sure my attitude has changed on that one, more likely its my own status. Paying $1,000 for a 3-day cruise would have been quite a sacrifice via other preferred destinations and experiences when I felt I had more discretionary time at my disposal.

I can sum up all my unfavorable perspective on cruises in the phrase “killing time”. I imagine crowded dining areas with people jockeying to fit that extra jumbo shrimp or slice of cheesecake on their plate. I imagine a fetid odor permeating all interior rooms. I imagine bored entertainers struggling to feign energy for a bored audience.

I’m capturing all this to reflect on how I’m transformed by my first cruise experience. See you on the other side…
