Fingers crossed.
My question to you is what are you going to do if they say you can't take them out? Do you have a plan?

No need to tower...that's what lounge chairs are for! We can all be waist-high to the waiters!

I'm sure it will all work out, it's just figuring out how. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you here too!

Ok, now I don't feel so bad. it's funny, because it is ALL in my legs! When DH and I are sitting, nobody can tell. Then we stand up, and you should see the reactions we get!

That was awesome!! I can just hear David Attenborough or Jacques Cousteau's voice!

The response was "thank you for the update", which is code for "let me find the best way to proceed". Which is a hell of a lot better than "Are you insane".

They might say no and they might unenroll us, but in the end we are going and will just find a way for this to work. Now on to the fun stuff, like packing! Oh wait, too early?

I visited my kids school principal, talked to her, wrote a letter so they have everything in written and don't forget...we had no problems at all. We did that two months ago, so school and teachers are aware my kids will be gone. After the cruise my kids don't go back to school anymore, actually school should be over on May 15th, but since we had 5 snow days, last day is May 20th.

I love this! I am picturing this mockumentary in my head right now.

My husband delights in making fun of me being a full foot shorter than him. I showed him the pictures of past PC cruises where people are crowded to the bow of the ship as it approaches the locks and told him I planned on watching from another deck or our balcony since I'd never be able to see anything in that crowd. He, of course, says "What's the problem? I would still be able to see just fine."

That earned him a raspberry.

Does anyone know if or when they may announce any celebrity types that may be on the boat? I know for my TA it was Charro. I was hoping for someone with more of a Disney background on this one.

I know we have a bunch of people staying at the Double tree. I'm wondering who beside us that might be. It would be fun to touch base before the 6th.
