Laura, I know you are onboard enjoying your cruise and family. Just want to wish you a fantastic trip with many good surprises and some

I am getting so excited about our upcoming trip. The count down is now getting lower. I can't explain how excited I am about meeting you all and being at WDW again! Come on F&W schedule. I want to attend the Grand Marnier presentation....got to be available on my dates.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ann

A quick "hi!" We just got home. Had a wonderful time on the cruise! Great first Carnival cruise -- yes, there will be more in the future!

Tracy, we docked next to "Allure of the Seas" in Nassau - I believe Oasis' sister ship! Carnival Ecstasy looked like a lifeboat next to Allure!!

I will post more later. Have to catch up on bills, laundry, cleaning........ then I can play again!!

So glad you had a good time and it is the sister ship. Even when we were on the Dream it dwarfed some of the other ships. This should be nuts. I did warm up a bit to the cruise after seeing they have my FAVORITE wine by the glass and I can't get it anywhere by the glass.

Did you see the sale on NCL for just one more day. I'm thinking you want to go on a nine day Caribbean out of NY in late March in 2014 or maybe a seven day to the Bahamas, before the sale is over tomorrow.

We had the DCL Fantasy sail by us (they were first out of Port Canaveral on our departure day). What a beautiful sight! But when we saw Allure, I honestly couldn't believe her size!

I haven't seen the latest NCL sale, but we already have 2 NCL cruises booked for 2013 so I'm not allowed to book (or even look!! ) at any more! I think a 9-day out of NY would be great! You should book it - you can always cancel without penalty. You can also get a price adjustment in the future should the cost be lowered.

I took a quick peek at the menu.



Cabana Bar & Beach Club was the big surprise for me last year! Can't wait to *sample* them again!!

Last year I didn't know who Cib's Smokehouse was, but their food was very good. I see they're back this year. I still don't know who they are, but I'm guessing a local favorite!

Il Mulino's "free form lasagna" looks interesting! Fried calamari..... I'm sure I'll hit their table a couple times (both evenings)!

Todd had the shrimp cocktail steamrollers last year -- they're very good. I'm looking forward to trying the Shrimp N Grits. Last year was lobster roll served by Todd himself! It was pretty good, but the Shrimp N Grits looks better!

Love me some Falafel!! (although the Falafel from The Mara beats The Fountain! )

My 3 kids are HUGE sushi fans -- they will be so jealous when they see what they will be missing from Kimonos!!

The pastries look divine! There should be more than just what was pictured here.

I'm not much of a beef eater, but JD will be at Shula's booth multiple times!


90 DAYS TO THE FOOD & WINE CLASSIC!!!!

Yep! That storm came up with no warning at all... initially they thought it was a tornado.

Kristin texted me in the middle of the storm to say she was terrified by the sounds of the wind. It was not anything like I have ever heard in my life before.

Mother Nature is sure POed at us this year for some reason!!
