Literally, the second I get home from a cruise I toss my suitcase aside and go to my computer to download my camera's pictures. On my past few vacations, I have averaged about 3,000 pictures. It takes my computer about 45 minutes to download my pictures and I will impatiently wait for each picture to be downloaded so I can view them on my computer's monitor. I enjoy looking at the pictures and always look at the pictures I took earlier in the day before I had to get off. I always have a strange feeling knowing that I was just on the ship a few hours earlier.
The first night back home always feels a little strange. There is no entertainment other than the internet or TV. There are no production shows, dining room dancing performances, or live music to enjoy before I go to bed because I am now back in the "real world". When I lay down to go to sleep, I usually feel like I am still on the ship and I can easily imagine the gentle swaying motion of the ship as I try to fall asleep.
Upon waking up the morning after the cruise has ended, I immediately miss the ship's breakfast buffet. On the ship I have access to omelets, bacon, and a variety of other great tasting breakfast foods. At home, I am not much of a breakfast eater and I prefer leftover dinner food compared to general breakfast foods. On this day after the cruise I will usually stay at home to start working on my cruise review and to readjust to the real world.
As time after the cruise continues I eventually readjust to my normal "real world" routine. Life gets back to normal and all I have are the memories from the cruise. In my spare time following a cruise I will write my cruise review to publish on here. This allows me to enjoy reliving my vacation experience and to help others prepare for their own cruise vacation.
