Time for some therapy.
Regulars will recognise that this thread is very me. I even admitted to what’s at the heart of it, earlier: FOMO.
I’m going to blame the kind of brain I’ve got. The existence of a choice implies to me the existence of an optimum choice and I get driven to find that optimum choice. This sometimes leads to me endlessly changing my mind — which is, actually, more often, endlessly reiterating and improving the initial choice I’ve made to make it ever more perfect. Or it leads to me making no decision at all because I can’t find the optimum choice.
This website is simultaneously catnip and toxic to me. For example: the room finder. Honestly, I would prefer to have an allocated room in a resort and not know about what options there are. Because knowing that there are options compels me to find the best one. I know I’m not alone here in trawling through endless room reviews and photographs trying to find the best room in a resort.
I’ve made my choice: the Disney Magic. I made it however many weeks ago. I should stick to it. People endlessly rave and gush about Disney cruises. Let’s find out what the fuss is all about. I’ve never regretted a WDW vacation, or even a DLP one. Sure, we’re in COVID times, but Disney’s going to make it as Magic-al as it can be, surely?
If it turns out I like cruising, there will be many more opportunities to try other ships and other lines. And the time to figure out which is right for me. I was pressuring myself into making a quick decision to switch to another ship on another line with minimal research beyond seeing a couple of YouTube videos.
I often joke in restaurants when I see the menu that I hate choice. I kinda do. Lucky on this trip that, when it comes to the menu, at least, you don’t have to choose: you can have it all!
