Everyone makes me feel so unprepared lol. I have not even begun to start packing. I have gone shopping and got all the kids clothes and my husband and I all cruise attire. However, no packing lol. Guess I know what I am going to be doing tomorrow. I am always a procrastinator. However, I have been very busy with college but I did just graduate last Tuesday so this vacation is a celebration of that and now I have the time to pack lol

Wondering if there are any moms out there that have kids under the age of 5 that will be on the cruise with them? Just thinking about trying to arrange play dates for my kids to have some kids their own age to play with. Any moms let me know.

Not a mom But our son is 4 1/2 and will be in the club probably the minute he gets a chance as he had a great time last year as a first-timer. We'll be glad to introduce him if you come to the Deck meet on Saturday, his name is Mateo. I'll be the one taking photos lol.

A question for the Mom's here:

Have any of you taken a cruise with during an early pregnancy or bad morning sickness? My wife is 11 weeks and this pregnancy is making her really nauseous already and I'm afraid to see what happens when we board. Any advice on what can help to avoid a nonstop sea-sick cruise or minimize the nauseousness a little?

We have the sea-band and some ginger gum but that's about it. So I need to pull out all the magic remedies because if Momma's not happy.... nobody's gonna be happy on this cruise lol.

I have never cruised while pregnant, but you may want to check with the doctor to see what they recommend. I've heard of the ginger but they may be able to give you a better idea of what she can take. I had terrible morning sickness and had to get a prescription for something.

I would agree with KTB2002 I would speak with your obgyn as soon as possible to see if they can write a script for anything because I know with severe morning sickness they will but they also sell these little hard candies for morning sickness at maternity clothing stores. I know the ones at my mall sells them I think they are called preggo pops or something along that line. It's sometimes hard candy or lollipops that are suppose to help with morning sickness.

WOW! You guys were busy with posting last night. Welcome Lyndsey!!! Hope you can make the DIS meet on Saturday.

I am so excited!!! 3 more days of work, 2 more days of school for the kiddos and I'll spend Friday packing up our last few things. It was a bit warm at WDW this past weekend so I think we're going to pass on the 24-hour celebration and rest up for next week.

On my last cruise, I was pregnant (further along than your wife - 6 months). I called my OB/Gyn, he prescribed some motion sickness to help with na

You can have up to 6 guests for the normal price and 50 extra for each additional person. I know its a maximum of 10 guest but we were hoping to meet a nice family that is friendly that we could share the cabana with. Since my boys are 4 and 2 we really thought a nice comfortable place to relax and cool off would be beneficial. If any moms out there thinks this sounds like something they would be interested in please let me know. Thanks
I bet my group would be interested but we have a group of 7 - 4 adults and 3 kids. Which my teenager last year spent all her time in the teen section. We may be able to ask them if we can make this work if she just visits and checks in occaisionally. Let me know what you think?? Or if you decide you don't want your cabanna we would definately take it!!

Does anyone know if they let you board earlier than your boarding time? Just curious. I don't want to show up early to just wait. Looking forward to it.

Lynsey:

Take a look at the spreadsheet that's linked in my signature. You'll see all the kids with gender and ages. That should give you a good idea who from this thread will have children the same ages as yours.

Make sure you stop by the Meet & Greet at 2:00 - 3:00 in D-Lounge (Deck 4 Midship) on embarkation day to meet everyone.

The time you have now is just "Port Arrival Time" to try and stagger the inrush of people. You can arrive earlier and hang around the terminal (if they let you in, depends on crowd level). You'll receive your boarding number after checking in. Boarding SHOULD start around 11:45 give or take a little. Then when your number is called, you get to push and shove while being pushed and shoved until you get to the gangway.

This time I think we're going to try and get to the terminal around 12:15 or so. I've heard that you can basically check in and walk right on board. I'm all for not getting my toes stepped on this cruise.
