I'm jealous! Have safe trip!!

We have started our count down calendar at home! I made it for our WDW trip in 2009 so it's Disney themed. When I left this morning DD & DH was looking over the DCL website at all the things to do. DH is finally getting excited about going.

Has anyone started to pack yet? Last year was our first cruise (EVER) so I was stressing out on what to pack. This year it just feels like a regular vacation (which likely means I won't get my act together until the night before we leave). I should probably start making lists at least.

I've made stacks on the guest room bed...my normal M.O. Our dress clothes are hanging on a door hook ready to go into the garment bag...got to get my dress back from the tailor....
planning to bring the suitcases up next weekend. This weekend is laundry and setting aside more clothes. It's much easier now that the weather 'turned' here! Packing one bag for the stay at BLT so the others can stay closed.

All this and I will still be up til all hours the 30th, sure I've forgotten SOMETHING!

Had to get our suitcase out for a short trip to North Carolina last weekend. No sense in putting it away now. However, I find myself talking to it when I walk past it in the bedroom (I'm home alone a lot...is it obvious?). I somewhat envy all of you packing up to come down here on vacation...I miss those days from when we lived in upstate New York. The trade-off is that we only have to pay for the cruise...no travel, meals or hotels. I'm okay with that! However, it's so exciting listen to you all talk about getting ready. Thanks for all the sharing!

Cell Phone Service

Just got off the phone with ATT wireless to inquire on my options for cell phone service while cruising, was pleasantly surprised to hear that the ports of St. Thomas, USVI and San Juan, PR are part of our domestic minutes and plans and no need to upgrade to an international plan, to be able to check in with family during the middle of the cruise.

I checked with Verizon and learned that in both San Juan and St. Thomas, texting and data are covered under our current plan at no additional cost. In San Juan, voice is also covered under our current plan, which is NOT reflected in the website. In St. Thomas, voice costs $1.99 per minute.

Try living vicariously thru your friend. Check the Personal Navigators online, see what your friend's options are and decide what you'd be doing....kinda like a mental cruise.

My daughter and grandkids will be at the port toward the end of the channel waving goodbye...feel free to act like you know them...wave and yell! They love it!

hi everyone! Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory and has no additional costs with U.S. mobile subscribers. I have had ATT, Sprint, and now T-mobile and the phone is safe to use while in PR. I talk to family and friends all the time who live on the island, perfectly safe. St Thomas has different rules depending on the carrier, so I would double check
So close!!! We are so ready to go!!
