Pre-vacation panic

Friday I head out to LA to catch my first ever cruise which will go through the Mexican Riviera. We've got scheduled stops at Peurto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan. I'm really excited and terrified at the same time. I've never been on a cruise before, so this is a whole new thing for me. Top that with a healthy helping of bunking with other people and spending time with 4 folks I sort of know and 4 I don't know at all and I'm a bit of a wreck.

I'm trying to stave off the panic by making lists. Lists of things to pack, lists of things to do while at sea, lists of things to do in port, lists of things that need to happen before I go. This is helping a bit, being busy at work is also helping. What is not helping is the obsession around how I'm going to get enough alone time on a ship to keep from murdering all the passengers. But I think the headphones will help with that, and they're already on one of the lists.

1) OMG happy, happy cruise!
2) Headphones, a book and cold "I know where your cabin is" stare, will get you all the privacy you need.
3) Rooming with others. That's tough. Will your Mr. be with you?
4) Don't panic, it's supposed to be a relaxing vacation!

(this list inspired by your post, wherein you discuss lists!)

I'm a compulsive list maker, too. Especially when it comes to vacations, though for me, it's because it helps me stretch out the excitement.
