The flight is right on the borderline. If you have early dining or skip breakfast completely then you should be ok. It just depends in when we get cleared. If that process is delayed you could run into a problem. If your flight is too early, DCL may make you take your luggage yourself because they won't be able to guarantee it will get to your flight.

You can cancel onboard if DCL finds another passenger who wants to take your place.
Oh, wow. That is fantastic. The other cruiselines we paid up front, so I was expecting to have to pay, but this is even better.

We booked a Blue Lagoon Dolphin encounter. Hopefully the third time is the charm, as this will be our third attempt to see the dolphins. Last two times we missed the port or got there late. Fingers crossed it works out this year. If not, that just means we have to go on another cruise.

Thanks again for answer all of my questions.

We have early dining and won't have too much luggage. We'll plan on getting up and out early.

We checked in on Monday too!!! Amazing DBF stayed up till 1:15am (central time) to complete the check-in since the system crashed!

We got the 11am arrival (which we had wanted), 10:15am time for Atlantis Beach Day, and 11:30 Palo Breakfast!! All in all we got what we wanted!! Still no room number listed but we are being patient!

I'm really surprised at how much is still available after the paid in full date! On past cruises, it was absolutely impossible to get Remy or Palo brunch even for silver Castaway Club members! It seems strange to me that this cruise is almost sold out and yet there's still availability. I mean, folks are still getting 11am port arrival times! Wow!!!

Must be a LOT of first-time cruisers on board...

Hopefully, this is a picture of my DH (Kevin), myself (Shannon), and our DD (Sarah). I will try and get a picture of her friend, too, but I'm not making any promises. I am having trouble getting photobucket to work properly for me so I am trying to show a picture of my family using one of those countdown tickers I see everyone using. Hope this works. If not, I'll be back at square one. BTW I love getting to finally put a face with a name for everyone. Can't wait to see everyone on board!

First timers

We're on this cruise. First timers. Very excited. Question about excursions. I know you can cancel up to a few days before the excursion. Do people ever cancel? We wanted to get two spots for the dolphin swim, but only one was available. Any thoughts?

I am also a first timer, so no experience, but I would keep checking back. I have noticed that some days one thing is sold out and then it pops up as available. I would just keep checking. We are booked for the dolphin encounter (not the swim) but might end up cancelling and just stay on board the ship. Doesn't help you, but others might be in the same position.

I have been trying to post a picture of my family but I cannot seem to figure out how to do it. Does anyone have a suggestion? I was trying to use a picture from my facebook pictures.
