YES!!! That is what it feels like! LOL! I was amazed at the chef custom making the asian lomein one afternooon in PC. I was having a difficult time standing in place in line watching him and he was managing four skillets.

Did not spoil the cruise for me though...I rebooked while onboard for a midship verandah stateroom the next cruise!
Katie, I do believe you were the person who said this on the stateroom tour. You weren't the only one who asked me that question though. I would probably feel it more if it wasn't for the bonine. Always order gingerale in the aft MDRs, especially when we are leaving a port that night. We mentioned to our servers Thursday night that it finally felt like we were on a ship. I do hope that you were able to keep the seasickness under control and enjoy the rest of the cruise.

They will ask if you want one or both of those or you can tell them 'all available' and hope for some more. A token of appreciation such as candy or gum is nice but not a requirement. I included a huge number of suckers and gum in my bag with the vinyls and the markers.
Thanks so much for the information, my son will love having a pillow case !

Nice tips -- especially about sunscreen.

If I wanted to swim before having access to my room, I think I would come wearing my swimsuit rather than planning to change into it. My DD needed to use the restroom and couldn't because there was a line coming out of the bathroom with people waiting to change into their suits. Not sure if that is the norm or not.

That would be ideal, but I think it depends on one's travel plans. For many who travel for several hours to the port, doing so might be uncomfortable or inconvenient.

Yes -- I would not want to fly from DC in with a swimsuit under my clothes. There are many restrooms that can be used for changing, so I don't see that being a big problem.
