Glad to help. We're booked for the second sea day. It's like building up to a gastronomic crescendo over the cruise.

Well, we'll fill you in! It's been a wild season so far. Lots of familiar faces from the 80s and early 90s are now wearing suits for the Broad St.Bullies. I've been in Indiana for 15 years but still watch the games on direct tv. Both my boys are hockey players and Flyers fans too.

We were until about a week and a half ago until we logged into our ressie and saw that our room was assigned! Now I'm playing the "is it too early to start packing yet?" game. LOL.

We have our cruise documents, alcohol, camera, and a couple of things for the kid to keep busy with in case there is any waiting at the port. We don't swim on the first day so we don't pack bathing suits. Once we get on the ship, we eat lunch, head to our room to unpack, explore the ship, and then go to the sail away party. My girls love exploring and I'm sure there will be all kinds of fun things to discover on the new Magic. I know they can't wait to see the Club/Lab!

I have heard the same about Premier. We are going to park at Safecruiseparking.com. I posted about them a few pages back. They have a temp lot because of construction but they have a 24/7 security guard and a gated lot, so I still feel it's secure. Read my post that I posted earlier for more info.

I may be in the minority, but I didn't care for brunch at Palo. I consider myself a foodie and love trying new and different things, but this just didn't do it for me. I prefer dinner. But there are plenty of people that LOVE the brunch so go ahead and give it a try!

If you are driving to the port and are disabled and have either a disabled license plate or disabled placard, parking is free. From the Port of Miami website:
For Disabled Persons

Disabled parking at PortMiami is free. However, in order to waive parking fees, appropriate documentation must be provided to the Toll Attendant upon exiting the parking facility.

Required documentation

State Issued Driver's License/I.D. Card or U.S. Passport
Original Parking Sales Receipt/Parking Ticket Stub (No Copies)
Authentic Disability Placard/Permanent Disability License Plate
Proof of Sailing (Sailing Card or Original Purchased Ticket Issued from the Cruise Line)
Letter/Card from Department of Motor Vehicles signifying to whom the Disability Placard is assigned (Applies to states that do not have a driver's license number on placard)

For all of the ones with younger kids they now have a life guard at the family pool during hours its open. I'm the crazy parents that has to know where my kids are at all times just adds a little peace of mind.

We are 4 hours from the port and we are going back and forth about staying over night or driving in the day of. Kind of makes me nervous about driving in the day of, there is 8 of us in 2 cars. I have also called several of the cruise and stay hotels that don't have Oct 31st available for the cruise parking, but the hotel rooms are available. They must have a certain # of spots. Any thoughts?

I did and it asked about testing something on board. It might have something to do with our cell phones. I saw on another blog that there is an app for when people are cruising on the Fantasy. It is like a Navigator on your phone.
