If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

knewton64 I do know a bit about wine and in reply to your questions I would stick to reislings. gewertzermenier and pino grigio if you prefer sweeter wines. Also I don't know if there are sweeter reds but bonterra winery in Cali makes a very nice red zinfandel that is easy to drink (not too strong). Some of my other fave cali reds are menage a tois (blended wine) and red velvet from the cupcake vinyards. Hope this helps

(though it doesn't matter, we're still going on the allure next year!! )
Well the Allure is a much nicer cruise ship... It' not close... But when it comes to the overall cruise experience I'd give the Fantasy the edge. Not really a nod towards DCL, but more towards the Dis and the camaraderie of the people we've met through our meet thread.

We are really looking forward to the Oasis next year!

I'm really intrigued by this. I go back and forth on whether to do a Disney cruise or Oasis/Allure cruise. We've never been on a cruise, so I am way over-thinking this. We have food allergies and restrictions (DD has food allergies and I'm vegan and gluten-free) so I lean toward Disney, but the price is so high. I haven't heard much about Oasis/Allure accommodating food needs. I worry that we would go on a RCCI cruise and I'd wish we were on a Disney ship.

Ive been on a 3 days RCCL and a 8 day Carnival, along with a 7day disney. and each cruise our waitstaff/mater de always asked if there were any allergies or restrictions they needed to know about before we even ordered our drinks. They dont mess around with that.


and now any day Jen.. LMAO jk I know like im one to talk.

I think everyone needs to really experience both ships themselves to make a decision on which they prefer. Like you, some people love the Oasis class ships and think they are far and above better than other ships; yet some folks would much prefer a more intimate ship (all Disney ships, regardless of size, would fall into that category just by virtue of their layout). It really is six of one, half of dozen of the other...or comparing apples to oranges - which setting is preferable to each particular cruiser.

Every cruise that I've been on has taken food allergies seriously. They ask about allergies and restrictions as part of the on line check in process as well as at dinner once you are on the cruise. I think you'll find as much variety to suit your needs on most cruise ships.

Ha! I was just giving her a hard time about it yesterday... I think we'll see an update real soon.

Exactly! Like I said, I love the larger ships with all the bells and whistles that Royal offers, but there is something special about Disney too! On each of my last four cruises (2 with Royal and 2 with Disney) I left saying, "This was my favorite cruise so far!"

Oh my gosh you guys are so amazing to be so patient!

NOW WHO WANTS AN UPDATE?

(I will need a little bit of time, apparently Photobucket has changed since I was here last forever and a day ago.)

I am really happy to get back into a routine and get on with the show!

Hang tight I'll be back in a bit!
