Got our cabin #

Yes we now have our cabin--looks great for location!
And decided to book our Cartegena tour with the cruise line.
Too late for us to get Palo but will try once on board.
Sunshine here plus the local daffodil flower show is going on today!

What do you ladies do for daytime wear? Capris and tops?

It's too small for him now. We were going to donate locally with other clothes during spring cleaning, but thought maybe someone looking for a costume for their child for the Pirates in the Caribbean party on the ship would be interested, no charge. If interested, please PM me and I we can arrange to meet on the ship somewhere to drop it off. Assuming there's interest, we'll give it to the first legit PM. Cheers.
That is very nice of you! Glad you have joined the DIS. Check out the first page of this thread for some good information.

You may be surprised! We older folks get slower and have less strength, but we make up for it with cunning sometimes.

No cabin for us yet. Yes, I wear capris or shorts and tops for daytime wear.

Thanks - much appreciated. Someone responded (kbishop2013) via PM but I could not reply directly since I don't yet have 10 posts, so I sent my PM reply to one of the members listed as staff (I sent my reply to 'The DIS Moderator Team' username asking if they could forward it along to kbishop2013). Would that work, or should I wait until I have 10 posts?. Thanks for the help. Cheers.

Yeah! Thanks!

Great - we'll jot down your name and room number. I think my wife said she can call your stateroom and we can make arrangements once we unpack onboard. If you're not in the room, we can leave a message and once we touch base, we can make arrangements for you guys to pick it up. I hope it fits, but my son was 10 and tall for his age when we bought it in 2010, so it should hopefully fit your son.

Thanks,

Cheers.

We are going!!!

I know I am late in the game, but just found this board. My sons and I will be on the cruise. They are 7 and 9. Went on the Wonder for Christmas. Depressing as it sounds, my husband was killed in Afghanistan the day before our youngest turned 6, on Dec 14, 2011. So, after we finally were able to burry him in Arlington last December, we bailed and set off on a Disney Adventure. And even before we left the ship decided it would be so much fun to do another!

CANNOT wait to meet you all :-)

(I'd post a pic, but don't know how to do that)

Truly,
Casey, Chad and Noah

Welcome to the DIS and welcome to our cruise thread! It will be nice to meet you and your sons.

I was able to enjoy some cruises after my first husband died and my girls were still young teens. What cruise and ship were you on before?

Be sure to check page 1 of this thread for some more details. Sorry for your loss, but glad to see you are taking some trips with your family.

Welcome to the group. What a lovely gesture to offer a costume to someone.

I ran into Ducky at Disneyland two days before last years EBPC at Candlelight. I asked him if he will be on this one. He said he was going in the Transatlantic out of Galveston. He did say though he was planing on making a litho for us. Things change so we will see.

Looking forward to meeting you and the kiddos! Are you coming to the DISMeet embarkation day?
