I am hooked on tip threads!

I don't know if this is a "ruise" tip or just a good summer/sun travel tip...
A small container w/ aloe vera gel or lotion for the cooling effect after the sun

We will be cruising next year- haven't booked yet as we are tsill deciding category and checking on a few policies- definitely, definitely cruising though!

One good tip that we started just recently is taking a shoe bag or something like that to hang from the towel bar in the bathroom for all our "stuff"....toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, makeup, hair product, sunscreen, lotions, etc, etc etc.

Our son is in a wheelchair so we have to have the handicapped accessible cabin, and there is NO counterspace for anything because they have to keep it all open for wheelchair turnaround space.

Also....a couple of surge protectors, you know, the ones with lots of outlets, for chargers, etc. We always need our mp3 charging, Patrick likes his computer, also the electric shaver.

Parrot Cay is buffet,also, the same food as is offered at Topsiders (or Beach Blanket Buffet,depending on the ship) both are very good!

Wow that's interesting.
We've always gone to Topsiders- but this time since we upgraded at the port we went to the concierge reception first. After that- we weren't really "starving" (like we normally are when we board at a later time and head straight to Topsiders for our late lunch) but we weren't totally full and knew our rooms weren't ready yet anyway- so we head to PC since at the concierge reception they recommended going there instead of topsiders. When we got there- they had CM's outside and we thought one was going to hand us the hand wipes- but instead they said that PC was full and told us to go to topsiders.

We thought nothing of it- but decided to just go to the pools anyway since we weren't really starving or anything (more like we just wanted to see if they had something we wanted- particularly dessert). I had no idea they might be fibbing about PC being full. I do have to wonder why they'd say that when it's not true and why they'd try so hard to direct everyone to topsiders instead. Weird.

2 stops at Disney's Castaway Cay (their private island that all cruises out of FL go to).

Are the showers actually in the work out area or the spa?

To make unpacking easier...I pack everything right from my closet (with the hangers attached). By the way,,,I use the cheaper plastic hangers. Then when I unpack I just open the suitcase and things go directly into the closet. Very fast and easy. All my skirts, dresses, and tops. I find it much faster for unpacking. Yes it takes up a little more room...but not much.

My personal guess is because they have to turn PC around and have it ready for dinner. Less guests in PC means less clean up before resetting the tables for dinner at 5:45pm.
