They're also showing the West Side Story. Will you be seeing that too? I was actually looking at that show also, because i've been trying to get DH to see that for years and I think it would be really cool to see it in this way
When you see it again, you'll be amazed at the beautiful metal work in the lobby and the theater. I was just sitting in the lobby enjoying an drink and admiring the work.

Did you decide which cruise to book? I loved the two stops at CC on the first cruise. I would definitely book that itinerary again.
I'm debating between that Wonder double dip and a Dream four day. I think it will come down to actual dates and timing in the long run. I'm not bringing it up until the cruise is closer since we plan to book on board for whatever bonuses that they give you. I was reading a Navigator for the January 6 day cruise and they gave you an extra bonus if you booked in the first two days, so if we know which one when we board that will help.

OK, good to know. I guess you don't overlap with Corinna, we could have had a Js and Ks meet!

I have discovered the only cure for post trip blues is to already have another trip booked
Ain't that the truth!

I created a ticker and I'm not sure how to attach it. Any ideas?

No worries on that front. I have the big camera and the waterproof one packed along with plenty of memory cards. I thought I had taken oodles on the Wonder but I tapered off towards the middle... I won't make that mistake again


Thanks so much! It's always a little unbelievable the night before vacation. I'm still not packed...

Ooohhh, I didn't know that. I'm planning on rebooking the two I have now to get the OBC. I'll have to do it right away just in case they're offering something similar.

Hi everybody just wanted to check in before no Internet on the ship. Got down here yesterday and had a fabulous first day. Explored the WL which is gorgeous. Definitely worthy of an extended stay. Then we went to DTD and straight to EoS. They took my favorite sandwich off the menu and even though they have all the ingredients they can't/won't make it anymore my second favorite is still there so I'm ok for now. Then we headed to the movie theater to see Jack the Giant Slayer. On the way I thought of the cookies that Alicia raved about at Ghirardelli and just had to stop for one. I ended up getting the chocolate chip and chocolate toffee. Oh my goodness, AMAZING! Warm, melty goodness. Thank you Alicia! Then off to the movie which we enjoyed. Now we're getting ready to take a nature walk and will head off to the ship at 11:30.

Have a great week everybody!

I second his vote Blue Heaven, try to sit outside, there was a lady playing the guitar while we were there.
