The Many Adventures of Tart Girl and Underdog... Western Oct 20, 2007
Disney Cruise No. 4 starring Robin as Tart Girl (also known as Tart Annihilator) and Mike as Underdog... also staring, the legendary disers called "The Konked Kruisers".
Robin here... with Mike looking over my shoulder. (This is a team effort.)
The build up for the cruise started over a year prior when we jumped on the October 20, 2007 dis thread. Two of the couples, Walt & Di and Cass & Rob, cruised with us in Oct of 2005.
We had booked a Cat 12 Gty hoping for an upgrade. We learned from our previous cruises that we don't spend much time in our room (As our fellow disers know) and chose to reserve an inside stateroom. And as look would have it... We got our upgrade. We got a porthole... stateroom 2566.
The time was getting near...and before we knew it, we were doing our
"Doc Dance" Now, packing has always been my job, as I am the "Master Packer".
As you can see... It's organized chaos... But I know where everything is.
October 19, 2007
The day had finally come...We flew out of Akron and we were in Florida in just over 2 hrs... Picked up our rental car and headed for Port Canaveral. We had a ressie at The Radisson. We would be gettting to the terminal about 10:30 tomorrow.
When we arrived at the Radisson, we decided to drive down to Flounder Rd. to check out the restaurants and see what ships that were in port. We turned in early that night only to wake up at 4:45 AM. All we could think of was The Magic coming in to port... So we got dressed and headed down to the channel.
Sure enough... we got out of the car and there she was, The Magic... coming in to port. She was so quiet, if you would have closed your eyes, you never would have known she was there. It was the greatest feeling.
It was finally here... we dropped our car off at budget and they transported us to the terminal. The gates weren't open yet... there was a line of people waiting to get in. As we looked at the line we started recogizing other Konked Kruisers. (Jen, Pete, Jeff, Scott, Mike...) What a rush.
We entered the terminal, got a No. 2 boarding pass, found a seat and watched for other KKers.
My only regret is that I didn't take any pics. I did have the video camera going most of the time. It was great seeing everyone that we had been talking to for the past 13 months.
We boarded the ship, walked through the atrium and ran into our server from our last cruise, Everlee. We talked and were happy to hear he had been promoted.
There was dis meet at 3:00 at the Mickey Pool. It was like watching a bunch of old friends. I never would have dreamed that we'd have such a great time together.
Stayed tuned for the crazy time at Rockin Bar D...
