Shaned...what deanna23 said...nice clothes are just fine for dinner. no shorts or swim suits. Also, think about bringing some pirate clothes too. Sunday is our "Formal Night"...my hubby and I cruised last year on our first 7 night and we dressed up but some people go all out (tuxes etc.). We are going all out this time so I'm excited to have a reason to get all dolled up! Tuesday will be our Pirate Night, Wednesday is our "Semi-Formal" night (dresses and suits if you want)...if you just wear nice clothes, you will be fine. Noone has ever commented but I know they would if you wore shorts os swim suits Cannot wait!!! Just a few more days!

P.S. We have a 4 1/2 year old daughter so something family friendly.
I called Disney a couple weeks ago as we have a 1 1/2 year old... I asked about kid-friendly excursions and this is what they told me: At Grand Cayman: the Boat Beach Adventure and Marine Park, 7 mile Beach Break and Nautilis Undersea Tour (we did Nautilis last year and like it) at Coasta Maya: Highlight and Beach Combo, and Chakobean (sp?) Ruins Tour. At Cozumel: The Ruins and Beach Tour, Mayan Ruins and Discovery Park and The Discover Mexico Tour.

We have not booked our excursions yet (DOH!) but am considering the Mayan Ruins and Discovery Park at Cozumel and possibly a beach visit somewhere since no Castaway stop on this trip. See you there! Hope this helps and not too late!

Welcome

Glad that you found us! That's quite a drive you guys are making! How long of a road trip is it going to be?

I'll keep an eye out for the tye-dye, but we're also getting together at 3 pm in the Promenade Lounge on Saturday, so if you have time to swing by come and say hi

thanks. I would have booked for the 10/13 cruise, but my nephew was available for the 12/1 date. I have never sailed at Christmas time, so I am excited about the decorations. I know you'll have a great time. I'll be waiting for some good reports when you return. Bon Voyage!!!!!!!

I have been on deck two. It was very convenient. Especially if you are located in the back (aft) of the ship. Our muster station was Animator's Palate. that was really good. Sitting in the restaurant while others are standing out on deck. Easy to get to dinner and off the ship in ports. I don't really care where my cabin is as long as I am on the ship!

We take a couple, one for him that's fancy and requires work, and one for me that isn't & doesn't. I have a Lumix something or other, and its a great little digital camera - but I am not a good photographer.

Book one onboard and you'll save 10% plus only have to put 50% of the regular deposit down plus get the OBC. It's very theraputic to have another cruise booked before you are forced kicking and screaming off the ship.

I am so happy

One day down, I am with you all, I have stuff all over the diningroom table, the ironing board and the coffee table. I have all the formal stuff dry cleaned and am hoping to get the suit cases down so that I can start packing!!!
I have 3 clinical days and one lecture to complete, then I can have some rest and relaxation!!!!

We bring 2. One nice DSLR and before our last cruise we bought a nice waterproof camera (Lumix I think) for anything having to do with beaches or snorkeling. Makes a big difference having that one available.

We have an Olympus (? sp) an 8 what ever - waterproof camera and Mike is debating whether to take his DLSR that he has.

I still have stuff at the cleaners - that we pick up today. And everything else sitting on the bed in the front bedroom. This is sounding silly but I think our shoes are going to have their own suitcase.
