As for scuba Cayman is he best of the places we are going. Wall dive would be a great dive to make here if experienced enough.
Silly question... How do we check that time? I tried to find it the other day but couldn't find it?

The tips have been great and look for more to come and hope we can help as well. We are looking so forward to this trip and have been doing so much research, I can't believe we just now ran across this thread thingy. Thanks so much!!!
I can't begin to tell you how excited my daughter is to finally hear another girl her age will be on the ship. Will you be at the meet and greet?

Should be on the boarding pass you printed. Laying down with iPad so don't have boarding pass to give more specific directions though. My dd I suspect is upset she is not going but she wanted to be in class all week when we asked if she wanted to go with us.

Oh Yes - We wouldn't miss the meet and greet. There will be three of us looking confused and lost we should be easy to spot. LOL Yippee!!! Just a couple more days left. Christina is our daughters name.

Thank You!! - That is awesome!! - We will see what items we can come up with. I'm not sure what the rules are of the FE or how it actually works, but I'm sure we can come up with something pretty nifty.

Lunch or snacks

Will they have snacks or lunch set up when we get on the ship since we all seem to have boarding times right around lunch time? So excited! Sherry

Shelly the Pooh - LOL I think name tags will come in reeeaal handy. This would've made for an interesting guessing game of some sort. Trying to put a face with a name from only comments made prior to boarding. We are so new at crusing and only just now found out about thread's about a week before our magical journey, but at least we did make it. Looking so forward to this trip and meeting everyone!!

Orchidkris - I told Christina about your message and your daughter being the same age this morning and she was so excited. She asked me a thousand questions. None of which could be answered other than we will see Saturday. LOL They are going to have a blast!! First cruise and new to us all. I can't wait!! Feel like I'm 10 years old now!! teehee

Disney policy

I think I saw it mentioned earlier but did not pay attention so now I am curious. What is Disney's policy about bringing on beer, wine, and spirits to your stateroom. I looked but could not find it on the reservation page. Thanks for all the help for new cruisers. Sherry

You can bring beer, wine and/or spirits on if they are unopened and carried on in your carry on. You can also bring a wine bottle to dinner as long as the servers keep it for you. It will be kept and offered to you at dinners until it runs out.

I didn't see them state any limits but I guess you can't technically carry a keg in your carry on so what ever you can fit in your carry on seems acceptable according to the rules.

Sherry, the information is under FAQ's, Preparing for Your cruise, Alcohol Onboard Policy or FAQ's, Beverage Policy.

I probably won't have a name tag on for our meet and greet but I will be definitely wearing a Houston TEXANS blingy lanyard around my neck for the duration of the trip so that should be a noticible item to identify me.

Food

And Sherry I believe there will be a buffet restaurant open for lunch and maybe the food stations by the pools for food once we board. I will have to double check that information though.

Don't worry about that just enjoy the experience and start planning for your next Disney Cruise and FE Exchange.
