Sea days are such a nice break from the non-stop touring in the ports. One of my favorite memories is sitting on my veranda reading while looking at the coast of Corsica.

I'm excited to go thru the Strait of Messina (between the toe of Italy and Sicily). I'm contemplating bringing a tripod just for this...

I don't know, but it's gonna be one of the first questions I ask. Might have to rearrange spa appointments to accommodate the voyage thru. Yes, the Strait actually ranks higher than the spa.....shocking, I know.

I figured I'd rectify that a bit. So while Kim sews, I am supposed to be losing the extra weight I put on this year, so that my cruise clothes actually fit. Notice how I say supposed to. I get through 6 out of 7 days and screw up on the 7th day. DH is no help because he's the one that leads me down the path. I don't have much time because I refuse to buy new and I have a whole closet full of clothes I could take.

It's been an "interesting" 2013 for us thus far. We started the year with DH being in ICU for a bleeding ulcer, 3 weeks later he was let go from his job ( and still hasn't had an interview for another, although I'm told there's lots of stuff in the works), we've had various expensive car repairs and untold other little lifetime stuff. We actually considered cancelling the cruise (the insurance we had bought the week before he got laid off, would have covered the plane tickets that we couldn't get refunded). We had a few weeks before final payment was due, but alas, I may regret this later, we are going. Most of our friends encouraged us not to change it and just to bite the bullet and go.

Since I'm such a nervous nelly about money, this is a tough one for me, but I've decided to go, have a great time with great friends and a crazy group of people that we've met on our DIS board thread and our FB page and just forget about all the other stuff. For those who know me, you know how tough that is but I'm trying

Another thing I don't see Kim mentioned is the great, lively group of people we've met thus far via DIS and FB that are joining us on this fabulous adventure. I can't tell you how much laughter has been generated by the antics of a few, but if this crowd is as lively in person, this looks to be a great cruise
Just catching-up on this thread and have to say how happy I am that your family is going! Sometimes, you just have to go for it and be grateful for the opportunity! It's the time and memories with family and friends that matters the most... Really looking forward to meeting this group in person! Here's hoping for an amazing trip and experience for all of us!

The cruise would not have been the same.......and remember, good things happen to good people and KARMA sometimes works it's magic!

I don't spend any time over on cruise critic's boards, but RomeinLimo posted a link to this TR on their FB page. It's not on Disney, but it covers many of the ports and is a good, interesting, informative read with good pics:

BAZINGA!!!


Let there be Vatican tickets! For anyone needing to book, stalk your dates....the next date is released at midnight Vatican time...so for me at 3pm PST. Sundays cause a day's delay.

So remember last year....

When I was on the obsessive hunt for a new camera bag? Wouldn't you know that Pacsafe finally decided to make an official bag for DSLRs? Actually, they made a few types in differing sizes, and the one I ordered is already out of stock. I had to get it off Zappos when Amazon failed to fulfill the order after a MONTH:

http://pacsafe.com/www/index.php?_ro...=detail&id=216

It's fabulous. I can fit EVERYTHING in there, iPad included, and it feels lighter than the Clikelite bag (which I sold back to B&H). Used it the other day and am very happy with my decision to completely change my mind and spend a few more $$ on this bag.

Looks like a nice bag. I can't bring myself to buy anything by this vendor so I am still looking for my perfect bag

Nope. But I am not a fan of advertising designed to scare folks into buying costly products to protect themselves from threats the company makes sound much worse then they really are. Pax safe has made a lot of money creating unnecessary fear in travelers
