Good Morning Cruisers!

Ken - in case I forgot to tell you - we received the lanyards last week - they look great! Thanks for getting ours to us early, you can be sure we will also be wearing them on the earlier cruise!

And we will drink a toast to you and the luau on Saturday night!

Hi Lynn - you're now completely alone.

It appears that everyone is very busy the day before the cruise, so lets call off the pre-cruise meet on Wednesday afternoon. We will see everyone at the terminal and/or on board the Wonder!!

I'm here..haven't packed a thing. DD got home Sunday from summer work so I have been busy with her and tomorrow we leave to get her apartment key for her Junior year at college and start to set up "house" for her. Other DD gets home Saturday from summer job. The plan is to tell them Tuesday at dinner that we will be leaving Wed. morning to drive to Cape Canaveral for Thursday cruise. I'm sure they have no idea.

About 1/3 packed!

Got the boy's clothes packed (and some snacks). We leave Sunday for WDW. I agree that it is hard to work and get ready for vacation. All the more reason to relax when we hit FLA.

I'm here, but barely. Too much work and too little sleep. Big boss just discovered he needs something (a LOT of something) prior to my leaving on Friday. Truth be told... don't know how it's going to happen. We aren't packed dur to work. And we're leaving Friday to pick up my nephew on the way... and our friend David. They will be with us until the cruise then they will fly home.

Well after a final hectic few days which saw me up until 2am each night finishing work (why did the Diocese introduce Swine Flu Protocols days before my holiday?????) we're in Orlando!! (I slept most of the way!)

A quick question for those of you more experienced cruisers - DH wants to wear a cream linen jacket & trousers for dinner (with a variety of hawaian shirts - warning to anyone sat near us!!). None of his 'formal' shoes look right with this but he does have a very smart pair of suade/leather flipflops which might. Would these be acceptable for the dining room? I've searched and it seems flipflops are OK for ladies but no one mentions men! Thanks in advance!

3 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THREE DAYS AND COUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have started putting things together for packing - just added a couple of things to the list, only minor stuff.

Gotta get through these last two days at work . Makes it much nicer upon return if there aren't things hanging out there just waiting for me when I get back

It's a rainy day here in Baltimore today but thankfully no serious storms. Hope everyone has a magical day!

It's not about waiting for the storm to pass.....
it's about learning to dance in the rain !

Good Morning Cruisers!

Karen - Scott will be wearing Hawaiian type shirts for the whole cruise, just brought 1 plain shirt for dinner at Palo's. He wears Sperry Topsiders (loafers) when he dresses for dinner - I do not know of anyone who has ever been told they are not appropriately dressed for dinner (except at Palo's), so I should think his flip flops should be fine. It seems the only thing they frown upon is swim wear in the dining rooms.

Sounds like everyone is leaving early. We are leaving Saturday also, and will be on the ship on Sunday! We also managed to pack in 1 checked bag each, with even a couple of pounds to spare! Our carry-on's are not completely packed yet - but we are still using a lot of the stuff that needs to go into them.

Have a great day all!
