Sea Bands eh. The stuff I was taking just knocked the wind out of me and I was tired a lot. I will defiantly give them a shot.

We did not bring our DD on the podcast cruise because it was the podcast cruise. We felt at 7 there would be to much that she would not have been into. Its a different story now and I know she will have a blast.

We also talked about doing a different cruise line. The oasis class ships look amazing but its Disney we enjoy so we figure it we are on the fence about the dream it might be worse for the other ships.

Anyways, we are both excited. Castaway was amazing even in cloudy weather.

I agree with pp that it depends on your stage in life. There's a big difference in what you feel like doing & what's appealing between ages 35 & 50.
Thats our thought as well. We are not doing any meets and not taking part in the FE group.

We also dont do wdw "commando" style. The thing we like most about going on long trips to the world is it gives us the opportunity to relax. Up early to the parks, back to the resort for lunch and a swim or whatever. Then a nice dinner out and an evening at the parks. It works very well and we dont get home burned out after the trip.
