We are coming too and can't wait.

We booked early Dec. and I wasn't able to get reservations at Palo's - so I'm hoping we can get something on the ship when we get there.

Hey fellow shipmates,

Let's get together and meet on board. When is everyone planning to board? Shall we meet at the Mickey pool for lunch? :confused3 Or does someone have a better idea?

WE are planning to get to the terminal around 10:30 or so. We will be coming from one of the Disney hotels. What time is anyone else boarding?

Our flight gets in about 10:00 am or so. So maybe around 11:00 - 11:30 - not sure?

No reservations at Palo - we booked late and didn't get any. But I'm going to try on Board.

I'm going with my DH, DD5, and DD3. Along with friends who have DD's the same age. First Disney Cruise for both families! Signed up for Palo on Wednesday night.
Signed all of the girls up for the kids club...anyone else have little ones that age in the kids club? Is it an all day thing or can we pick up and drop off throughout the day? Not sure how that works!
Love any advice you all have who have been before.
We're staying in Downtown Disney for the weekend and planning on getting to big boat around 11am.
VERY EXCITED!!

I have a DS6 that will also be in the kids club. There is a daily navigator that will list the different activities for the kids and for the adults. He will spend some time there playing, so mom and dad can have some quite time! :cool1: We got your docs. yesterday. We still need to make Palo res. when we get on the ship.

Hi Donna,

My daughter is 3 and is so looking forward to the kids club. I plan to get to the port around 11am. When we board, I am going to the Mickey pool until the safety drill.

When do we all want to meet? :confused3

NewyorkOT
01-11-2006, 04:34 PM
Has anyone planned a meeting from this board before? If anyone has a good idea on how to meet that has worked before. We will be boarding around 11 also if possible and then going to the pool if warm enough. My daughter is 3 and would love a playmate. Did you say your daughter will be going to the kids clubs?

01-11-2006, 08:09 PM
Yes, my youngest daughter is 3 and is signed up for the club. The other family traveling with us has a daughter who turns 3 only days after the trip. We are trying to get her in the club as well. They said she'd have to sign up the day we board. We'll be getting there around 11am and headed to the Mickey pool ASAP. Playmates sound great!!

lol, we are planning on going to the pirate museum and the straw market, then back to the ship to hang out.

On CC, we are doing the bottom fishing excursion. I don't fish, but I do enjoy being on the boat. I read and take pictures :) Anyone else doing the fishing? If I can send hubby with someone, then Serenity Bay is all mine!

We're going, but we are brining our our DS6. So it's up to you if you want to go together. I know my DH isn't thrilled with the Bahamas (and I agree with him) so I thought it would be fun and maybe to convince him to go if we went with others. We were accosted by the natives when we were last there getting off the boat.

My DH would have LOVED to do the fishing, but I knew it would be way too expensive for both us to go (since, like you, I really don't care to fish either), and now I think all of the spots are gone (that we could book online anyway). If I had known of another Disser doing it then maybe I could have hooked him up with a fishing buddy! :boat:

Oh, yes. I'll have the final list soon with all the revisions. Everyone plans to get to the port around 11am-ish and head to the Mickey pool. So plans are to be on the lookout at the pool for each other. We do have our cells so we can all try to call each other at the port or at the pool.

I don't know what to pack either. I am watching the weather right up to the last minute though!! So far, I have all of our swimming suits and coverups (thinking positive!) :rotfl: as well as shorts for three days. I am thinking that our day at sea, CC and Nassau will be warm enough? :cheer2: I am also packing a few pairs of jeans for each of us and some capris. We have our pirate costumes ready to go! pirate: And for the other dinners, I have mostly slacks and blouses for myself and kahki type pants and button downs or polos for DH. I figure that if it's cold, I will just throw in a load and rewash our jeans. I am also bringing light jackets and sweatshirts for all of us.

Sound good? :rolleyes:

Amlee
01-20-2006, 02:52 PM
Yeah we are all getting excited. The kids have been since they got told in August. The adults are just now getting excited about it all. I think once the hassle of packing and getting there is over. Then we will really get excited.

I took my mother on a RCCL cruise in 2001. We had to sadly watch as the Wonder sailed past us. If she could have figured out how to jump over she would have. She was like a kid. :rotfl2: I can't wait to see everyones face when we top the hill of that bridge and they see the ship for the first time.

This will be my 3rd Winter Nassau cruise. Both times we had shorts and tank tops with a light jackets for the islands. It was very breezy with the wind coming in off of the ocean. So if your quick to chill then be ready for it. No swim suits for me. I don't know about the pools, but the ocean water is turn your lips blue cold!!!

Layering is the best.

I checked the weather in Nassau and it is 77degrees!!! That is nice shorts weather to me. Orlando is warm too. I think it is 70. My kids won't care if the water is cold. They are both fish. They love the water and the pool. We are leaving next Friday night to go to Disney. We are so excited. I will be watching the weather all week too.

When the temp drops below 75 degrees they will heat up the pools.

Is anyone going to Disney the day before we get on the ship? We are scheduled for a Wishes cruise through the Magic Kingdom. Would anyone be interested in sharing it? I think they let 10 to 11 people on. We have room for 2 or 3 I can call and ask how many we can fit on.

The movies that will be playing are "Chicken Little", "Herbie Fully Loaded", "Narina", "The Incredables", and one more but I forgot the name.

I haven't decided about the ship yet. I know it's our formal night (which I hate!) I've been to Nassau many times and there is nothing really I want to go see or do there. I might wonder around the straw market later in the evening before they close. (better prices that way). I also have a day pass to Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort. So I might go check that out. But right now I'm plannig to stay on the boat.

We are probably only going to do the Straw Market and the Pirate Museum so we will be on the ship - hopefully hanging out by the pool! We don't want to do Atlantis for the aquarium as we have season passes to the new Atlanta Aquarium and we can't see paying full price for 5 just to do the pool/beach area. It's just not worth the money to us. I also asked about the glass bottom boat trip but was told it's not all that great either. The only other options were to take a taxi to a public beach but DH doesn't want to venture out to do with with three little ones. I wish they had the fishing excursion in Nassau instead of CC!!

People crusing this week are so lucky - highs of low 80's/high 70's. The temps keep dropping by the weeks end though and by the time we ruturn to Cape Canaveral, the projected high is only 62 w/a low of 41. Here in Georgia, we have highs around 58 right now with lows in the 38 - 42 degree range and while it's nothing compared to the cold weather you northerners have to deal with, it's not all that warm either. I'm hoping a warm front moves in quickly!!! :p

Last year I was down there the first of Feb and it rained like summer rain. Just for a few minutes and then the sun would pop out. With the temps in the high 70s low 80s. It was funny because we were all in tanks and shorts, while the locals looked dressed for a winter storm.

The weather forecast changes so often when trying to predict that far in advance. I am just hoping for a nice trip. We are tying to pack at our house. If I pack all the suggested items that I have seen posted here there will not be any room for our clothes. We are trying to only pack two large and two small suitcases. From what I have read lately people wear mostly there swimsuites on board and evening clothing for dinner. I wanted to pack some princess outfits for my daughter to wear to dinner on the ship. Our pirate stuff takes up a lot of room also.

I know exactly what you mean about the packing - we're only two people and we're having a hard time! We have one whole small suitcase with nothing but shoes in it! I don't know where we are going to put everything! Thank goodness we are driving! Does anyone know for sure if you have to have a DCL luggage tag on your carry-on bag? I hope not because I think we need all four of ours for our "checked" luggage!

Oh well, I'd rather be complaining about having to pack all of this stuff rather than not having anything to pack for!!! :)

Amlee
01-22-2006, 01:28 PM
We are within the 7 day forecast now. So I'm hoping it's more accurate since we are in that time frame.

I know what yall both mean about packing. I have all that i'm going to take in a 28 inch pull tote. But the one thing I have learned (The hard way!) is when you try to pack everything in one or two bags. You then get over the weight limit allowed per bag. (never figured out the difference between having one bag that weights 100 lbs vs two bag that weight 50 lbs each) But the airline seems to think there is about $75 dollar difference. :confused3

Packing is always so hard. I tend to way overpack, The cruise is extra hard since you need nice clothes for dinner (versus park stuff that is (for us) simpler!)

We usually stay at OKW at Disney so we have a washer/dryer int he room. I have gotten very spolied. We have been packing about 3 days worth of clothes and then I just do laundry. So this will be strange for me, since I don't feel like hanging out in the laundry room on the ship! Much different when you can throw a load in in your own room, KWIM?

Let's hope the weather is warmer and dry!!

I hate packing and what's worse is I haved added a few pounds since last summer. :p I always do this but I didn't think about the cruise so most of my summer things don't fit and I don't want to buy a size bigger. For one thing the larger size doesn't quite fit as well and (most importantly) I don't plan on staying this size!! I'm now working out like crazy. Not to mention that most of the stores here don't have their summer items out yet.
:yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :rotfl:

I think I'll have to throw in a load of laundry as well. I'm packing for 5 so the amount of stuff we have is unbelievable.

We are! I am bringing pillowcases and maybe a picture matte if I have time to find one before we go. I read on these boards that they still do that. Just put the item(s) in a plastic zip loc along with sharpies. I read the putting in multicolored ones is suggested.

My nephew woke his parents up telling them his room was full of smoke. My brother is a volunteer firefighter jumped up and got them all out of the house and then went back into the house. He managed to put it out before the fire department got there. They still don't know what caused it, but they had some fire damage and major smoke in the house. What a morning!!! We are very lucky! Ok got that off my chest!

I just found this site!! We are excited to be leaving shortly for our first cruise!! We are driving from Michigan with my DH, DS14, DD11, DD8 and DS3. My sister,her DH, DD19, DS15 and DD13 along with my mom and dad are meeting us onboard. I am glad to see fellow scrapbookers :cheer2: I might be able to sneak away to meet with you at the Micky pool.
A couple of questions, what is this I hear about a pirate party? Is that on our cruise? Also, do walkie-talkie's work aboard ship?

Welcome! From what I understand pirate night is a pirate themed buffet dinner the night we are Castaway Cay. With Fireworks and the like.

Here is a link to a thread that was just started the other day with pictures.

I don't know yet if I'll be able to get away to meet up at the pool. But I'm hoping to try!

ABOUT THE PILLOWCASES...

Is it OK to put both DD's in same ziploc with pens or do I have to prepare them separately and get more pens?!?! :confused3

So many things to think about! :crazy:

We're getting very excited! The kids are driving me nuts!!

I'm doing each child a ziplock with their name and age on an index card. I've bought a large pack of markers and I'm dividing those up amoung the kids. (5) kids total.

SO many things to think about. Don't forget a small surge protecter with a good lenght cord. Great for cellphones, camera chargers and alarm clocks.

Thanks! They were very lucky. If they hadn't of been home they would have lost everything. But it's all good now. Insurance man has been out. They can't stay at thier house, so they are staying at my parents main house. Which works out great for the trip. They are riding with me to the airport. I'm staying at the main house also. So less running around for me the morning we leave. :cool1:

Amlee,
Thanks for clearing up the pillowcase thing~ :thumbsup2

NEXT QUESTION...

My mom gave the girls autograph books at Christmas, will they be able to take them to the Kids Club or is that a waste? At age 5 and 3 I'm worried they would just lose them.
Should I just have them for scheduled character appearances and not worry about the ones they'll run into at the club?
HELP! I can't believe that this is the kind of stuff I'm stressing over! :)

THANKS FOR THE HELP!

Amlee
01-24-2006, 04:11 PM
Glad I could help!!

I just made my LAST trip to Wal-mart! :cool1:


As for the autograph books. I have bought our group some also. I went to office max and got the little kids pens that can be put on a chain. I've bought some hemp necklace string to run through where the chain should go. That way the kids can wear them around their necks and won't have to hunt for a pen. My mother has got them all fanny packs to wear and the autograph books will fit in them. That way they can carry their books with them around the ship in case they run into to a character. AND mama, daddy, or Aunt Amlee won't have to carry their books for them.

I am sorry to hear about your family's house. I am glad they are ok and you are still able to go on the cruise.
It is all the little things that are driving me crazy packing. I do not have room for the over the door shoe hanger. I am trying to remember to pack socks, underwear, clothing and toiletries, bathing suits etc. along with all the medications, suntan lotion, hats, suns glasses- what else am I forgetting?
We leave Friday night. I am sooo excited.

I thought I was able to pull up Navigators from a recent 4 day cruise. Does anyone know if and where they would be posted? I wanted to look at the activities.
Thanks for the tip on the Benedryl. I would have forgotten them. The dryer sheets is good also. The extra plug I almost forgot too. I do not know if everything will fit into my luggage.

Is anyone purchasing baskets from Shirley? What about from the cruise line? I got my family suprise baskets from Shirley. They are going to be so suprised.

I can hardly wait.

Amlee
01-25-2006, 06:40 PM
I didn't know about Shirley when I placed my order. But I ordered all of the kids autograph books and Mickey ears with their names embroidered on the back of them. They will be waiting in their staterooms when they get to the rooms. They don't have a clue I have them. Their parents do, but not the kids. I can't wait for them to get them!!




Ok now I have a question for yall!? Do yall know if water and tea will be free on CC?

I don't know - I would think so being that lunch is included. I'm sure someone's probably asked a simliar question in the past - maybe do a search?

I just have to say that I'm getting really excited! It's almost time to go! We are leaving work at noon on Friday, so we are planning to be on the road by 1 - 2 pm -- I can't wait! It's almost here! I hope to meet everyone after we get on board! :banana: :cool1:

Amlee

Thanks, I have tried a search. No luck. I guess we are just going to pack a cooler and some empty coke bottles. Fill them up on Deck 9 and take them with us on too CC.

I'm getting excited also!!!! :banana: My parents and one of my brothers and his family are flying down on Saturday. The other 11 of us are flying in on Sunday morning. To many of us to fly in on Saturday. So we had to split up.

I just got done printing out our door signs. Tomorrow I'll do the iron ons for the kids pillow cases.


Yall have a safe trip on the road!!

Amlee- I read in my cruise passporter book that the drinks like pop and ice tea are included. That may have changed. I am not sure

I am bringing extra bubbles for those that want to blow them at the Sail Away party. I bought the kind you blow at weddings. They were on sale at Micheals last week. I was going to print labels for them, but I have been too busy to get that organized!!! We are leaving tomorrow night and I have packed and re packed for my kids and myself. My husband decided he can just pack tomorrow before we leave.

Amlee
01-26-2006, 08:51 PM
OHHHH!! Bubbles!! I forgot about those! I guess I can take the ponchos out and put in bubbles for the kids. That is somehting I can get at the Dollar General with out having to go to Wal-mart!

Good Idea and the kids will LOVE it!
