18 Signs You're Obssessed with the BSB Cruise

Since we have a lot of time to kill in between now and the cruise....

18 Signs You're Obsessed with the BSB Cruise
  1. At any given moment you know exactly how many days we have left until the cruise (298 days...but who's counting?)
  2. Your YouTube home screen is full of BSB cruise videos
  3. You know the names of at least 2 Rose Tour employees
  4. More and more of your facebook/twitter feed is filled with fellow cruisers and Backstreet related updates
  5. You constantly stalk and twitter praying for cruise-related updates
  6. You already have your photo group planned for a picture that's 10 months away, but aren't concerned at all about planning that weekend getaway with your family that's in a week
  7. Memes like this make you giggle uncontrollably

  8. You have nightmares about missing the cruise, losing your passport, or the cruise being cancelled.
  9. Or if you're lucky you have good dreams about the cruise like running into AJ outside your cabin or getting a selfie with Brian at the deck party.
  10. Even though you have a big meeting/test the next day, you still find yourself up at 2am watching cruise videos.
  11. People ask you what you want for your birthday/the holidays/etc the answer is always money to put towards the next cruise,
  12. Anytime you meet someone else going on the cruise, they are instantly your new best friend.
  13. Every conversation you have leads back to the cruise somehow...
    "Speaking of Game of Thrones...did you know Nick likes that show? Oh and have I mentioned I'm going on a cruise with him and the Backstreet Boys??"
  14. Anytime you go clothes shopping you somehow end up buying something you "need" for the cruise instead.
  15. All other vacations now seem so dull because the Backstreet Boys aren't there to party with you.
  16. You've legit spent more time daydreaming about the cruise than you will actually be on board the cruise.
  17. You're almost just as excited to see Justin and their security team as you are the boys.
  18. Just the thinking about the cruise makes you want to stop everything and do this...

Please tell me I'm not alone, here.


  1. LOL #18, me. ALL THE WAY.
    Ahh, can it be May 2016 already! Don't even care that I'll be the good ol dirty 30 at that time lol

  2. So glad I found & read your blog Laura!!! Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, this feels very overwhelming to this will be my first BSB cruise. I'm working on building a friends network because I'm definitely a "more-the-merrier" kind of girl!! Any and all advice and help is sincerely appreciated!!

    I put a countdown widget on my cell and look at it at least 10 times a day and I just did #18 lol!!

    1. Hey girl!! Glad you found my blog too haha. You are in for SUCH a treat if this is your first cruise. Seriously, you're going to have the time of your life. Feel free to email me and we can chat further. I'm also the "more-the-merrier" type and love meeting other fans :D

  3. So the cruise countdown is now 228 days........#s 14, 16, 17 & 18 have consumed my non-school hours and my dreams lol!! Seriously cannot wait!!

    I just went shopping to look for a new suitcase, any suggestions (hard side vs soft, largest possible, etc)?

    I hope to email you in the next few weeks and humbly ask for advice on some stuff :-) I will need to wait for a weekend when we don't have a clinical rotation so I actually have some free time. Who am I kidding, I work 45-50 hrs per week and am taking 14 credits this semester, that is almost too big a load to juggle. But I will make it and survive because I have the cruise as my motivation factor!!!! :-D Once again BSB is my motivation in life lo!! Thanks Laura!!

    1. haha you sound like me!!
      As for suitcase...depends where youre traveling from & cabin size but Id say pretty large. I find Im packing quite a bit between theme outfits, door decorations, nice clothes, beach clothes, etc. The catch is those cabins are tiny so you dont want anything too big!
      Definitely shoot me an email when you get a chance!!! Id love to chat more :D Its important to take those BSB breaks :P
