They&nbsp;aren’t that elusive. Just look for one of the traits below.</span></p><p><strong>1.&nbsp;Didn’t Research</strong></p><p><strong><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 376px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></strong></p><p>This cruiser will get off the ship and scratch their head as soon as they clear the gangway&nbsp;because they didn’t research what to do in port.&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">You’ll also find the look of shock on their face&nbsp;when they realize they can’t walk off the ship, grab a snorkel and jump in the water. Well,&nbsp;unless they’re in Grand Turk.</span></p><p><strong>2. Disorganized</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 331px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p><span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">It all starts before they even get on the ship when they are going through the security check&nbsp;point. You’ll find them shuffling through papers and passports – holding up everyone behind them!</span><br><br></p><p><strong style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">3. Overpacking</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 333px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p>The first time cruiser will overpack – way overpack! They think a cruise ship is a fashion show&nbsp;and they have to look good round-the-clock. Different shoes for every night of the week and three&nbsp;different outfits for every cocktail hour.</p><p><strong>4. Timid Eater</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 375px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p>Surf &amp; Turf</p><p>This cruiser doesn’t realize that the main dining room is all you care to eat. They may even&nbsp;look at you in disgust because you ordered a second entree. But don’t worry, they’ll learn. Real&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">cruisers know that if you want 7 lobster tails or want to make your meal a surf and turf – you can!</span><br><br></p><p><strong style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">5. Obsessive Drinker</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 500px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p>They don’t realize that they’re on a multiple night cruise and that they can spread their drinking&nbsp;out over a few days. By the second day you’ll find “Frank the Tank” locked in their stateroom with&nbsp;the worst hangover because they didn’t hydrate.<br><br></p><p><strong style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">6. Says, “I’ll Get It On The Ship”</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 333px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p>This cruiser is about to make their bank account really upset at them.&nbsp;The sundry shops onboard&nbsp;the ship are double, if not triple, the cost of the item at your local drug store.<br><br></p><p><span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">I had to buy NyQuil on a cruise recently, it was $19.99. At the local Walgreens it only costs $6 for&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">that same bottle.</span><br><br><strong style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">7. Fashion Police</strong></p><p><img alt="" style="width: 500px; height: 333px;" data-cke-saved-src="" src=""></p><p>These cruisers carefully plan out each and every outfit and coordinate matching jewelry, shoes,&nbsp;and makeup to go with it. &nbsp;And they don’t just do this for formal night – they do it for every day of&nbsp;the cruise. &nbsp;But cruising isn’t a fashion show! &nbsp;It’s a time to relax and have fun, so take a break from&nbsp;feeling the need to look like you stepped out of a catalogue every day, and just be yourself.<br><br><span style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;">Can you spot a first time cruiser?</span></p></div></blockquote>
