Looks like we'll be across the elevator (lift) lobby from you - 7518. We were thinking we need a door magnet that says "Shhhhhh", but I think the forward elevators aren't so busy. Here's hoping.

That was my parents room so it should be available! Happy cruising!

TheViking (Erik, my husband) are in cabin 7040. We are quite pleased with the results. The cabin we picked was about the same place but on deck 6. I prefer higher (you know, closer to God! lol). I have been aft and I have been forward and I finally wanted midship and GOT IT!!! Also, on our last cruise we were right by the elevators... I fell in love! I really dislike the corridor walking, I get a little claustrophobic. I mean I deal but I loved not having to do it. We are not really bothered by noise or commotion so it works just great!

I'm getting quite excited for the cruise. I do wish I would have time to get to know you all better so I could have met online friend onboard. It was my intention but after all I have been through (my dad dying, Erik hurting his knee, me going off my anti-depressants, etc) I just didn't have the where-with-all. I am really going to me doing the FEs and the Secret Mickey. I had to drop out of the FEs because I just couldn't put anything together. One of my favorite parts was to see what gifts we got each day (giving and receiving is my love language) but I just couldn't manage.

One thing we did talk about on Facebook was to get the homeschoolers together. Anyone interested. I will plan something... If I plan it, they will come! (ok, maybe it wasn't that funny! ) I'll will make a post here and on Facebook soon about it! Hey, even if you don't homeschool, now is a time to learn more about it too.

Argh, No time to breath. Heading up the care package project this weekend. Still repairing my "formal dress" that I nearly destroyed by dry cleaning, and I haven't even thought about packing. What was wrong with me when I volunteered to head up this project. I can't wait until next week where nobody can find me. Cindi

Homeschool meet up!!!

CALLING ALL HOMESCHOOLERS
(and all who want to discuss homeschooling)

DAY 3: May 8th
2:00pm
Promenade Lounge

My thoughts are that I want it early on so we can get to know each other sooner rather than laters and I picked the Promenade because I couldn't find the hours of operation for anywhere else that allowed children. If it's crowded we can move or something. And this doesn't have to be a one time thing.

Keep my cabin number handy with any thoughts about this... 7040

That is so nice of you to do, thank you! Makes me feel bad because my gift is so small (as in, it is not per person but just per room, and not all that big ...). So everybody in my group, if you feel like giving us something smaller than everybody else, it will be totally fine by me! I wish we didn't have those luggage restrictions, that would make everything so much easier ...

I don't know why so many of us are in connecting rooms, but I realise it's the chance we take to book *GT!6!
"Quiet and isolated" sounds great! I am really looking forward to trying something new with a forward cabin. And you are totally right, we take a chance to book *GT and with all my talk about connecting doors I never wanted to come across as whiny - I am really happy with what we got! We saved about 60% of the original price, so there won't be a single word of complaining frmo me anymore!

Hello almost-neighbour - we are only a few doors down from you, in 7528!

Off down south with a visit to MIL on the way and then a night in a port hotel. Tomorrow we board the QM2 for 7 nights over to New York.

Back to finishing the packing now.

See you on Monday 6th May.

WOW! What a great beginning to the cruise!

Please everyone cross your fingers REALLY HARD. We might have a buyer for our house and it would be such a load of stress off, if we could get an offer.

We leave on Sunday, so I *will* need to get some packing done. Trouble is, we're stumbling over each other in this tiny apartment with few empty places to put a suitcase.

Happy Day, all!

:: uncrosses fingers long enough to type a message :: Good luck!

FYI - for those who had GoinPlaces63 (aka Anne & Richard) on their FE list and have anything special (personalized/specific to this cruise) for them - I think Scott and I will have enough room in our luggage to be able to bring some back with us, since we live fairly close & are planning to meet up after the cruise. We're also delivering a couple of gifts from them to the groups they were in.

Please make sure to mark your items appropriately, so we don't get confused about which gifts are for us and which are for them! We're on the group 6 list - cabin 6628.

Funny how so many of us received just the opposite of what we would have picked. We got 5650 the so called "Barb and Tony suite"... It is not a suite but this couple have stayed in the room some 40 times+. We really wanted as far forward as we could get and now we are as far aft as you can get. Oh we'll beggars can't be choosers ;-)
