From the pictures I've seen of the Dream/Fantasy, and from using the "coolers" on the Magic, I'd plan for your beverages to not all fit at once. I plan to buy "warm" beer so I can refrigerate some at a time. If I buy wine, it'll be a red not requiring chilling.

As soon as you board the ship,the earlier the better.Find out where they are set up for special requests like Palos,Remy's and such.Often they are able to accomadate.

I shouldn't have looked at the orlando weather forecast for our prestay,hope that changes.

Yeah, appears to be a little system moving through just before the cruise. Looks like it starts improving on Sunday.

Still stuck in our house from Nemo. No idea when we will be plowed out. At least we have power and there will be no food in the fridge or freezer

I hope you get it! As someone else said, go & ask first thing. Even if they can't move you right then, maybe they can take your name & swtch you if someone on early wants to switch. Pixie dust!

Winter Storm Orko has started here in Duluth! It's coming down pretty hard. We will be getting a LOT of snow, methinks. Our travelmates are supposed to fly out tomorrow morning, I hope I can get them to the airport.

I thought Nemo was a weird name for a storm, but Orko???? Isn't that from "He-Man & the Masters of the Universe"?

OOh, tell me more about these packing cubes. Brand name? Do they compress? Where do they sell them?

I can't believe you are already packed! Hurry up and get here and help me finish my packing!


Ok.. You are both overachievers! I am halfway done with A.C.Es, going through summer clothes to see if anything fits. I will probably work 35 hours this week Monday through Thursday.. We fly out at noon on Friday!

In all fairness, we had a baby shower for my daughter yesterday that took a bit of my time the last few weeks. If it weren't for that I would be partially packed already!

I don't mean to hijack, but I think I am addicted to packing cubes, so I can't help myself. We get ours from ebags and they are FANTASTIC. They come in lots of colors and sizes. Each person has their own color. For the boys, I put one day's clothes per bag (shorts, t-shirt, socks, undies). For my husband and I, it works out better to have a bag of shorts, a bag of shirts, and a bag of socks/underwear, since a lot of our stuff is in the garment bag. Earlier today I had quite a stack of them all ready to go. I wish the rest of my life were as organized as my packing! We use them all the time. They work great for summer camp, also.

I think I have also seen them at stores like REI, EMS, and LL Bean, but not sure. Ebags definitely has the best price I have found.

Suitcase one is at the 50 pound limit, and I'm glad I started today, a couple of items need to go to the cleaners first.

We just got our power back from the storm; it went out Friday around 7PM, and cell phone signal went dead sometime overnight, so no cell phone internet either all weekend. Nice practice for the cruise, though. I started getting my packing together, I am definitely ready for some fun in the sun.

Just checking in to catch up after 48 hrs of no power . Now I'm in panic mode to get ready to leave by Wed. DS doesn't have school tomorrow either, thank goodness for grandparents. 2 more days of work and late nights packing ahead.

I was wondering how you guys were doing.I know S.County lost most of its power,and that you were flying out on Wed.

Glad things are working out now,almost there.

May not hold it all... but close to it.

Its like a college dorm fridge.

I bought ours from eBags.com. They are fabric and mesh boxes that zip shut. I can pack seven days of shorts and t-shirts in a large cube. I couldn't travel without them now. My mom saw mine last time we traveled together and she bought herself a set. They are good for just about everything.
