I need to add this to my first-time cruiser report. Go to the right, behind the sign about photos, because you don't have to get your family photo taken if you don't want to. We went to the far left too and OOF it was slow. Once I saw people skipping the photo in the far right line I was like dang! I'm not buying this photo anyway!

Hehe - i like the MOOO. That line does not look like fun, but sounds like it went quickly. Plus I imagine I wouldn't mind it too much if I knew I was about to start a cruise.

Aawww-so sweet about you getting emotional at the introduction. At least you got a superstar pic, though!

Did you keep a final tally on your drinks? Those things can add up, but are totally worth it!

Ahhhh, the drink of the day, I can not wait!!

The cattle call doesn't look like a lot of fun, but at least it didn't last too long

Was 'heaven in a cup' some kind of white chocolate raspberry thing? It looks devine! I just know they are going to have to lift me off of the ship with a crane when it's all said and done.....

I know what the final bill was that was slipped under our door, but that included CC excursion, spa treatment, souvies, Palo, so not exactly sure what the drink total was. But it was a BIG shock that I still have not shown to Jeff (and probably never will!).

It was a raspberry, whitechocolate thing, yes. But I had a trick that I used and it worked. I left behind ONE BITE of everything I ate!!! All the calories are in that ONE bite!!!! So I only gained 3 pounds on the trip. And I ate.... a LOT!

I'm going to use this trick! I always have to "sample" 1 of everything (and by sample I mean get a piece of each thing and eat it all). If you leave 1 bite of each dessert, that must total at least 1 less dessert that you eat overall! Hmmmm....I think we discovered a new type of Disney math!

Mrs. Sparkleson: May I just say that you are my very favorite trip reporter ever? because you are! I am so getting a kick out of this PTR turned TR. I am crying and laughing right along with you. We are booking--tomorrow--a week on fantasy or 4 days on dream so I am new to all of this cruise lingo. I have no idea what all of those bags are for but I can't wait to find out. I am going to start frequenting the cruise board here shortly.
Where in Greenville are you located? My mom and Dad live in Greer kinda near BMW (way out there) and my sister lives in Greer (near Pelham) and my brother lives downtown.

Well I guess that makes you my new favorite reader!!!! So sweet of you to say!

And I live in Greer out by BMW also..... I used to live off Pelham Rd a long time ago. It really IS a small world, afterall..... you're singing now, aren't you? And cursing me for putting that blasted song in your head!!! BWAHAHAHA!!!!

Kinda like my Disney math that says a Value Resort one time, then a Deluxe Resort next stay, average into a Moderate resort?

You didn't know that? See JaxJags, it's "Disney Math" and in this case "Disney Calorie Counting"

Now I just need to find that special Disney Math that makes the next trip cheaper so it can come sooner.....

BTW, I wanna know where my commission is from Disney? I have a good friend who just booked a 4 night on the Dream over Christmas. How awesome is that????

I just subbed! Followed you over from 999ghostlovers' PTR.

I have never been on a cruise before and really, really, REALLY want to go. As I know absolutely nothing about it, I'm counting on you to teach me everything I need to know, okay!? No pressure, right?
Seriously, I think you're so funny, and I've already learned a thing or two from what I've read so far. I can't wait to keep reading!
