jackie! i cant believe you stayed on hold all that time!! i talked to kim and in less then 5 minutes i had booked for the date i had in my signature all along! and was thrilled to find out that

A. it is another double dip! and
B. it is almost $1000 cheaper then the phantom april date oh - and
C. we will have the same cabin again! perhaps eventually i will know my way around if i stay in the same stateroom each time!

i was so happy to hear linda be as excited as i and agree to go during this week and she already (miss you plan it and ill be there) said she is picking the excursions this time - so - once again we will be parasailing and taking the eco tour at castaway cay!

Janice, glad you got your '08 booked so easily, got a good rate and YOUR stateroom!

OK, how wacko is this? I've been thinking about our grocery shopping list for SSR in December!!! It might be just a tad early to think about that detail. But I have the web site for the grocery store that delivers in my 'favorites' all ready to go. I do think it's very important to have the proper early morning and late night snacks/beverages on hand!

Pretty WACKO!!!!

We had snow here this morning - it looks beautiful out!

And I just got my new 'lightweight' Travelpro luggage...opening the boxes now.
Janice, Glad you got your dates AND your cabin...LOL.

I actually like trying different rooms...I have sailed in an 8 on the Wonder and will do a Cat 7 for this cruise (my sister will be joining me and Sarah for the "December Birthday Girl" cruise)
I have done a 6 twice on the Magic - had the good luck to upgrade at the port to a Cat 3 and on the 2 repos booked a Cat 4 thanks to Barb who was able to book us in at the first price point.
From what I have read, there are people paying more for a Cat 8 on the PC EB repo than I am paying for the 4. It can be really crazy!

Jackie, sad u aren't with us but GLAD you got on the Westbound.....

And as for time of year and pricing - I think the April '08 prices were driven up by all the 'fake' dates people booked - why doesn't DCL just allow you to book a 'float' date until they release their inventory?
OOPS, I forgot, they are in this to make money ...LOL
I actually like the fall to cruise - a nice break after the summer crazy time and before the Holiday rush.
So Fall 2009 for me is right around the corner!!!

Well, even though mysnow looks very beautiful, I would rather be on CC - Serenity Bay

HEY JANICE! and anyone else who's interested...

I just found out the grocery place will also pick up things they might not have in the store when given enoungh notice. So I'm thinking.....

Banfi Rosa Regale...at liquor store prices instead of $40 a bottle on the ship.

Hi ya'll! Just thought I would drop in to say hi, going to the doc this am. BTW, went to the oncologist last week, got my lab reports back and I am still cancer-free after 4.5 years, WHOO HOOOO!

Jackie, I would love to check out that grocery store. Can you post a link?

We saw a few flakes of snow yesterday, before it all turned to rain.

WOW Linda - wonderful news!!!!

It would be nce to have stuff delivered for when we arrive....but I wouldn't be arriving until LATE on check-in day at SS...is that a problem?
Does DVC allow the deliveries to get to the room before me?????
or would I have to schedule for early Saturday morning?

Congratulations Linda! That's great news.

(I think after my March check-up, I switch to every 6 months instead of every 3. It's the two year mark for me.)

Think I'll pick up some Rosa Regale for this weekend!

Grocery deliver

www.gardengrocer.com They will deliver alcohol, you just have to list what you want in the message section of your order. If you are requesting a specialty wine, they'd like to have at least a weeks notice. I just noticed they have a 'park essentials' section on their list. It includes the 13 oz bottle of Tide...very smart.

And for those of you who haven't tried the Banfi Rosa Regale, here's a description:

"Rosa Regale is a unique red sparkling wine. Soft and appealing, it may be enjoyed as a delicious aperitif, between-meal or after-dinner sparkler. Aromatic with a hint of rose petals and raspberries, Rosa Regale is perhaps the only wine in the world that marries well with chocolate, especially dark or bittersweet. Delightful, vivacious and aromatic, it can also be enjoyed with strawberries, fruit salads and a wide range of desserts."

I can't wait to have some with a chocolate souffle from Palo!

Linda

So happy about your news! Couldn't be a better way to start my day!

Janice sorry to hear you and Linda had a scare! I know what that feels like 05 was a bad year ....

JACKIE - did you email Janice our room information? She asked about it and you were so busy talking about wine... just want to make sure you didn't forget her with updated important information.

I'm so happy we'll be cruising this year... cuz looks like we'll be missing each other for 08. SOme of you will be on the Eastern REpo and that is always nice.

Have a great weekend all! HI PAT - HI SARAH - I know what you mean about the threads, our Western Stealing the MAgic is ridiculous I had 105 pages to read and I finally gave up!
