Nov. 28, 2009 Western - Post Thanksgiving Relaxation Cruise

Okay everyone, this is a new thread. Hopefully everyone that has been afraid to post will come out of the woodwork.

So we have 31 days before the cruise sets sail. Who's sailing with us?

I'll start. I'm Allison, cruising with my DH Mark and our 9 yo DD Mackenzie.
And we can't wait to get on board!!!

Hey Bev. My DD looked at your dog's picture the other day and said "Wow that looks just like our BC!! It could be his sister." I told her that I had already asked about it because it looks so much like ours.

I think I will need to bring a picture of our pooch along to show you.

Oh and for any new posters or lurkers. There are only 2 people on the cruise that know each other (sisters - Steph and Jen). The rest of us have never met but love to chat. So come and chat with us and don't be shy!

Copy your GTKY from the old thread and paste it to a new post on this thread so any new people can GTKY, Get To Know You, too.

General GTKY…
1. Where do you live? Catasauqua, PA


2. Are you married? How long? Yes, 37 years

3. Do you have any children? Ages? Yes, DD 36, DS 22

4. Do you have any pets?Yes. 1 Dog (miniature Border Collie/Black Lab mix), 4 cats

5. What do you do for a living? Work? Stay at home? Hairstylist

6. What is your favorite movie? Somewhere in Time (Jane Seymour & Christopher Reeve)

7. What is your favorite book? Anything StarTrek

8. What is/are your favorite TV show(s)? CSI's, Law & Orders, Trauma, anything medical or criminal. Also, American Idol & America's Got Talent. (DD's DH is a city Cop, DD is a College Cop & studying Forensic Psychology, DS is Security at the new Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA and wants to be a Cop someday too and DH & I used to be EMT's on a volunteer ambulance corps)

9. What is your favorite food? Shrimp

10. What type of music do you listen to? Do you have a favorite group/singer/band etc.?John Denver, Barry Manilow, 50's, 60's & 70's music and few new groups. Basically easy listening.

11. Where did you do your schooling from? High School - Freedom High, Bethlehem, PA. After that I went to Allentown School of Cosmetology, took my boards and got my license.

12. Do you like sports? What's your favorite football team? Ice Hockey. Whatever team my son plays on. Not into football myself, but DH likes the Dolphins.

13. How many siblings do you have? 3 older brothers

14. Did you always want to be a XXX? (your profession) I always enjoyed working with hair, but in 7th grade I wanted to be a nurse, but then I realized how many years of additional school I would need and went with Hairdressing instead. Did get a little fix the years I worked as an EMT though.

15. What do you like to do in your spare time? Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting and other crafts. I'm also pretty handy with tools. Just finished painting DS former room, laid parquette flooring and cut all the moulding for around the floor. DH had to drill and hammer it in because I just don't have the strength for that. (It was Oak moulding)

16. Any interesting places that you've traveled to lately? Bahamas last year on the cruise and in 2004 I went to London with DH when he went there for work. Want to go back there someday.

19. What does your name mean? Don't laugh, literally translated it means "Beaver Meadow"

20. When is your birthday? November 28 (first day of the cruise)

21. What is your zodiac sign? Saggitarius

22. What are your preferences when it comes to clothes and fashion? mosty casual, but love to dress up too

23. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Introvert, at least until I get to know you.

24. Are you an outdoors person? yes. We have camped quite a bit, Canada included. Love to swim, but can't stand the sun & heat.

25. Are you an adventurous person by nature or do you prefer playing it safe? adventurous. I ride my own motorcycle (a Yamaha Virago 250). DH & DS also ride. I am not a good passenger though.

26. How was your childhood like? With 3 older brothers it was rough. I didn't have the kind of protective brothers that others had. Mine would just as soon help pick on me than help me. It's gotten better over the years since we've all grown up.

27. Post a recent picture of yourself....

Found you. You can't hide from me! So glad that we are doing this since it may help to bring others out of the woodwork. Come out come out whereever you are.

I'm Jeff, sailing with DW Mina and DD Elizabeth (11) and DD Emily (5).

We are a family of 6 and looking forward to our first disney cruise - we are surprising the kids and hoping to pull it off until we are at the port. The only tricky part is we have to travel from Southern California to Orlando on Friday (11/27) which may be hard to do without answering questions as to exactly where we are going!! Thinking we will tell them daddy has a business trip in Florida so it sounds kind of boring. Can't WAIT to see how excited they are (and me too!) when we board the ship!!!

We have three girls (ages almost 9, 7 and 4) and one son (age 3).

Looking forward to a fun family week - just hoping nobody gets seasick!!

Debbie

I sent a note to mommasita (Cruise Meet Board Moderator) to have us added to the meet list for our date. Don't know if this was done yet.

Smile New Disney Cruiser

Hello...I'm on the Nov 28 Magic Western Caribbean cruise . First time cruising with Disney. I'm a divorced mom, age 39, traveling with my two children...daughter, 17, and son, 12. We are so excited! Are there any other single parents traveling with kids? I'd like to meet some single adults to socialize with. My friend @ work is a Disney addict and talked me into taking a Disney cruise this year. She also directed me to this site to meet some of my fellow cruisers. I have cruised before with Carnival and Royal Caribbean. I have only heard wonderful things about the Disney cruises and I'm getting more excited as our sail date draws nearer.

Hi, and welcome to the Disboards. We are having a board meet on the first day on the ship in the Promenade lounge at 2:45 p.m. Come on out and meet the fellow cruisers. I think there is one single parent in our group. Her friend is the one posting and is also traveling with them. And the DD is much younger than yours. Of course there may be more people lurking that we're unaware of.

So welcome to the group and feel free to post any thoughts, questions or just tell us about your day. We're a pretty easy going group.

And okay, I'll jump in with the GTKY stuff some more.

Me - Mom, Wife, Compliance officer, Girl Scout leader. That about sums it up. No time for anything else. I work in NYC. Love the environment, hate the commute. Love to camp, especially FW.

DH - Stay at home dad due to being disabled. We've actually reversed roles. He is a plumber by trade but not your typical toilet guy. He used to repair large, industrial pumps. He can create, build, repair, fix, juryrig just about anything. His nickname is MacGyver. The school loves him (small, Catholic one). They found out about his skills and if he walks down the hallway he is dragged into classrooms to fix things. Anyway, he rides his motorcycle when he can, loves to flea market and camp. The original Disney fan. He recalls camping at FW when it first opened and pretty much spent most of his childhood at Disney. He's the one that got me hooked. So if you want to hear stories, he's the guy to go to.

DD - She's 9. Smart kid, sweet kid and a hidden sharp wit that she only takes out when she needs it (or at least we're working on that). It sometimes gets her in trouble and sometimes has me laughing so hard that my stomach hurts (don't tell her I said that). She loves, loves, loves to dance. She takes 3 classes a week and would take more if it fit into her schedule. She made the dance team this past summer and got to dance with at Ellis Island. She also takes Karate and has just started basketball. Oh yeah and of course girl scouts. She liked princesses but was never really "into them". Give her a good power ranger any day of the week.

It's too bad our girls will be in different groups at the clubs since they seem to have a lot in common. Sports, dance, girl scouts, shyness, wit, a little princess aversion... Well maybe they can hook up at the pool or playing ping pong or hoops together.

Not to steal from Allison, but...

One Month from Today and we'll be sailing toward Key West
Southernmost point of the US
Duval Street
Amazing sunsets
Snorkeling
Shopping
Mallory Pier and all the weirdness there
Sloppy Joe's Bar
Ernest Hemingway's house
Six toed cats
Wild roosters
Key Lime Pie

Maybe you have a Palo brunch reservation.
Getting into the rhythm of life on the ship.

I'm getting to be too excited to sleep.

Welcome! As Allison mentioned, we are having a cruisemates meet on the first day (Saturday) at 2:45 p.m. in the Promenade Lounge. This will give folks a chance to meet and kids to hook up with others their age before the boat drill, sailaway party and all the fun begins. Join us. Just send an email to me at jeffd99@yahoo.com with your names and ages of kids as I am compiling a list that I'll send out a couple of weeks before the cruise.

Glad you found us. Just jump right in. Near the beginning of this thread there is a list of Getting to Know you questions. Most of us have filled in the information so we can get to know a little about eachother before the cruise. We are also planning a DisMeet onboard at the Promenade Lounge at 2:45 the first day.
