Don't forget to do the following in the next week.

Go to USPS.com and do a mail hold
Notify your credit card companies the exact dates and countries you are visiting
Hold your newspapers
Notify your local police as some have a list and while on patrol they do extra checks in you area

What else am I missing??

I never thought about calling the local authorities or the mail hold. Those are great ideas.

Great ideas,
Also for those of us who need to board pets,you may want to get a health
cert from the vet showing proof of vaccines ie,rabies,kennel cough ETC...

Also any family members on prescription medications,make sure and do a pill count to make sure you have enough tabs to cover the vacation.
Last year we forgot about this and the MD wanted to see my wife before
refilling scripts,because she hadn't seen him for 6 months prior.So we had to squeeze in a DR's visit the day prior to leaving.

Yeah I just tried to refill my epi-pen and the doctor won't do it without seeing me first...ugh. luckily I thought about that ahead of time. Does anyone think they'll give me a hard time about bringing a nebulizer?

Shouldn't be an issue make sure you bring the meds in their original container with the pharmacy sticker on it

Do we have a specific day to deliver for FE?

Thank you SILMARG for putting all of the FE stuff together. We are really looking forward to this cruise! Are you assigning specific days for delivery or is it up to each family? Thank you again.

Good tips, all. I'm hitting them all today since they're on my mind. And to complicate matters, I have to go on the road for work next week.

All just serves to remind me how close this is to reality!

Oh, and something to add to the list: go to the bank to get cash for tipping and such. I usually carry a stack of ones and fives when traveling.

No assignment of days. Enjoy the cruise and pass out as time permits!

Kinda wishing I joined FE. I get such anxiety planning and making sure my family DH, DD 13 , DS 8 (turning 9 feb 4th), DD 4 ( turning 5 feb 24) have everything they need. I resisted in joining in fear it would cause major anxiety. I have a feeling I will regret it when I see your beautiful
FE. Will join next time!

Tipping for servers and stateroom host are included. The singles and fives for tipping would be for room service on the ship (it's free for the most part but you still need to tip the guy that brings it) and also for the porters that handle your luggage before and after the cruise at the port and at the airport.

I am getting SUPER excited! Including today I only have 12 work days left before we leave!! I wish we were flying though.
