Thanks! I would have been heartbroken if we didn't make it either. So glad we did and that we have another one planned.

I can't believe that your TR is coming to an end, it's been great to read along
I know I can't believe that it's all over now. But I have a trip to WDW in less than three weeks, so I can't wait for that!

One thing I love about close to home ports- you are home so quickly and that last travel day is so much less of a headache. I used to live in Philadelphia and did 2 Bermuda cruises that left from there (in 1996 and 1998) and it was so neat to just get in the car and drive home. Looking forward to your next TR!
Glad you enjoyed it! I wish more Disney cruises would go out of LA.

I look forward to your updates on the Destination D so see you over there...

Thanks again for all the fun.
Thanks! I even have a Destination D update all ready to go.

All the jewelry you bought is gorgeous! Even the necklace you won is so pretty!

Your right! Your server does look super happy to be bringing in the scooter!

Aw, I can't believe your TR is already done. But I'm so glad you enjoyed the cruise!
I always feel good after some Tequila! Thanks, I'm glad you like the jewelry.

The server was falling all over himself to bring her scooter back to the table.

Our cats always get mad at us for leaving. Some of them won't come near us for a day or more. Others of them come around quickly because they really miss us.

Here's to the next!
Sorry you can't get on a ship without "issues", I really love cruising and this last trip reminded me of how nice and pampering it is!

Great TR - thank you! We'll be on the Wonder for Easter and it was fantastic to see pictures and such detailed dining reviews.

OK. In an effort to get myself motivated on this upcoming trip I have started a new PTR/TR over in the DVC section. Please come along if you like.

I love that you have a kitty named Velcro! That's awesome! Our handsome man-cat is Link, from the Legend of Zelda on Nintendo.

I'm glad my TR inspired a delicious final dinner for you on the Wonder. I just love how they will bring you anything and everything you want. One night I got a small portion of the vegetarian meal because I thought it sounded good, but the server told me it wasn't worth getting as my entree, and he was right. It was pretty bland... but a good side dish.

Congrats on winning that amber necklace. The color variations are really nice. It's very small and simple, totally my style. I think the jeweler is always bummed when I come look with Chris because they want to show my big expensive things and I always want to see small, petite pieces. Works out well for our checkbook I'm always asking, do you have something smaller?

Thanks for telling us all about your fun filled cruise! I can't wait to read about Galvaston!

Just in case anyone is interested, I have started my new cruise TR. It's less than three weeks until we sail! Feel free to come on over if you like!

We need a Little Magic, right this very moment!

Hi Alison!
I have a lot of catching up to do- I have been MIA from the DIS since I got back from Spring Break with Timmy, it's been the end of tax season, beginning of baseball season, PTA season- just a LOT going on!! But I wanted to say hi- hopefully I'll find some time this weekend to read the rest of your story.

I know you've been busy, and I know all about the tax season thing! If you're still catching up on this one, you've got some real catching up to do! Good luck! and I hope things calm down a bit for you!
