Thank you all so much! I guess a better question would be....do I need a passport? Where can I find out more about the actual Podcast Cruise that I'll be on? I'm a complete newbie when it comes to cruises and I need an introductory course haha!

That's what we're here for. Asking and answering questions. You will find a lot of us have great opinions and the Great and Wonderful AskTracy is overflowing with knowledge.

Congratulations and welcome to the frivolity!!!:sail::boat::sail::boat:

congrats!

There's a sticky thread at the top of this forum:
"Sticky: Links That I Think Might Help New Cruisers."

Reading thru that will prolly answer a lot of questions you didn't even know you had. :rotfl2: :rotfl2: Don't worry, you've still got lots of time - welcome to the madness :rotfl:

cheers,

Congrats on the win.. Julie said you were from Mechanicsville so your a neighbor. We are in Varina.. PCC 2.0 will be our 3rd cruise. You are going to love it!!


After you read everything that has been suggested and talked with Tracy if you still have questions this is the place to find out the answers, well here and the cruise board.

Hopefully we will get to meet you before we set sail. Oh and I am trying to get my stepson to cruise with us, he is 25. He is non-committed right now.

First, Let me say Congratualtions on your win. This is our first cruise also, and I'm counting the days. Yes, you will need a passport. They are easy to get. You can get the information off of the website as to what you need to have to obtain one. We applied for ours 2 days before Christmas and got them just after New Years. I suggest after communicating with "AskTracy" you read the boards. You will find answers to most of your questions there. I look forward to meeting you.

A passport will not be required at this time. It is strongly recommended and the rules could change in the future, but right now, they are not required.

Congrats!! I'll be a first time cruiser also on the upcoming podcast cruise. I have no idea what I'm doing either, but I know it sounds like fun.

Enjoy it all and congrats again!

Just realized I still have my passport from my trip to Ireland (and it's still good for a couple of more years), so regardless of whether it's made mandatory or not, I'll still have it.

It's sooooo awesome to read the well wishes from everybody, I'll be very active on the Dis Boards for the next 12 months leading to the cruise...SO Excited! I'm looking forward to meeting all of ya'll, making many new friends, and laughing & smiling the entire time!

Next task: Finding a Disney lady for this single guy!

We dont have them in the prize-matron.

That's frowned upon.:thumbsup2

Varina!!! VERY COOL! I've got a couple of friends that live off of Darbytown Road so I know the area somewhat well. I actually moved this last month to Franklin County due to work but I visit family & friends in Mechanicsville at least one weekend a month. It's cool to know there are other Virginians on the board (& boat!)

Besides us Cougars, there are plenty of young ladies on this board. I am sure you will run into a few of them on the trip. Congrats, I am jealous. My husband won't do a cruise. I figured if I won a cruise, he would have to suck it up and join me. Oh, well, maybe next cruise. Have fun. :goodvibesPenny

We live one road over from Darbytown Road so if you are in the neighborhood let me know and you can stop by and see all the cruise pics and stuff I have if you wish..

I'm catching up on podcasts & just listened to the show where you won.

I had to pop over & say "Hi!" because I'm in Mechanicsville :) Bummer that you're not anymore, though.

Congrats on winning!!
