Item description for Cruise Crazy: The Cruise Addict's Survival Guide by Bob Mick...

For millions of people every year, a cruise isn't just a delightful vacation it's an obsession. These Cruise Crazies have simply GOT TO BE ON ONE - landlubber jobs and responsibilities be damned. Luckily for them, there is a new behavioral therapy guide by Dr. Kruz Nutty (a.k.a. Bob Mick), the world's premier authority on cruise addiction. Through Dr. Nutty's Cruise Crazy, take a quiz to discover which of the four levels of cruise addiction you have reached. Then take note of the wacky pre- and post-cruise rituals and obsessive-compulsive symptoms that give cruise addicts away while learning new terms that finally define their crazy addictive behaviors: Stage 1: Pre-Cruise Psychosis - a happy obsession over choosing the perfect cruise; hosting cruise-themed parties, and sending endless newsletters to friends about their future cruise. Stage 2: Traumatic Travel Syndrome, where NOTHING will keep Cruise Crazies from getting to the ship on time. Driving at break-neck speed to their port of departure, booking only hotels with harbor views to watch for their ship, and suffering from Seaport Personality Syndrome get out of the way as these Crazies rush onto the ship. Stage 3: Sea Junky. Here they either subside into lethargic poolside lounging, hibiscus in hair, sipping umbrella-laden ice-cold drinks, and floating peacefully on turquoise waters, or they rev up into a frenzy of shipboard and seaport activities by overindulging, overshopping, overeating, and overdipping into every port of call with utter abandon. Stage 4: Severe Ship Separation Anxiety as cruise crazies approach the dreaded end of the cruise, when days of uncontrolled exuberance come to an end. But Dr. Nutty does not abandon his dry-land afflicted Crazies here. Discover his 25-step Cruise Recovery Program with its bathtub buffets, faux cruise ship rooms, and other cruise withdrawal remedies. Laughter is always the best medicine and Cruise Crazy may be all the laugh therapy - or encouragement - you need.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cruise Crazy: The Cruise Addict's Survival Guide?

Cruise Crazy is spot on!  Aug 15, 2008
I recently read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved Chapter 3 about being a "traumatic traveler" because that's exactly what I am. Plus the part about "Seaport Personality Syndrome" made me laugh because it really describes how I feel when I get to my port city and board the ship. It's all good though. If you love cruising, you'll love this book for what it is.
When you get back.....  Aug 10, 2008

Had Dr. Nutty's book been around after my first cruise
then I might have had more laughs versus dull stares into space!
This is just plain fun, as was your last cruise. No travel advice
for your fave destination in Europe, nor neat pictures of ships that existed at publication date. Those books are boring! That is timely information that changes.
You are trying to find others who are in your mindset, and this book fits in! Nobody else gets it, but YOU DO! Timeless!
Yes, I am a cruise addict!!!  Aug 7, 2008
"Cruise Crazy" was recommended to me by a passenger on my latest cruise as an entertaining way to help me get over the post-cruise blues and to help figure out just how cruise addicted I am. It was a fast and funny read and I don't know how many times I thought - how does Dr. Nutty know me?? I tried several of his suggestions and they really helped me out. I now have a cruise corner in my bedroom - with my homemade towel swan and a collection of tiny umbrellas among other souvenirs. It's my go to spot when I need a little cruise fix. I would absolutely recommend this book to any cruise fan who has a tough time getting back into the real world after living in a fantasy world on the sea for a week. Since I now know that I'm a top-of-the-line cruise addict I guess I should start packing for my next cruise!!
Unique and funny cruise book   Aug 7, 2008
I found this book to be very unique and humorous and I wouldn't even call myself a cruise addict - although I like cruising. You have to understand the humor and I "got it", so it was very enjoyable with some very clever ideas. For $10, you can't go wrong and I recommend it to everyone.
Some will find it funny -- most will not  Apr 1, 2008
Wow, how I regret purchasing this book. If it weren't impractical to return it (thankfully, it didn't cost that much), I would. The author clearly thinks that he is witty and quite funny. Some will agree with this assessment (maybe adults over 70 and children 7 and younger). Most, however, won't get his humor at all. Many times, his failed attempt at humor clouds the message he is trying to deliver. I did pick up a few interesting ideas from those parts I did read, but not emough good ideas to warrant finishing the book. It is just too arduous of a read.
