So if you post alot, you will see us grabing the "top of the page"...just a little fun thing we do to keep the thread moving....I am keeping score on the top...so join in the fun on that.

So fun surprising your daughter....what a fabulous surprise.

Finally, after a lot of thought, I came up with a story. Just a week before cruise, I am going to tell DD that we are going to check out college in FL. Hope it works.

Will try to join the "top of the page" game.

actually you already have, you got the last top of page, adding you to the list....one questions what is your first name? thanks...

I think a trip to check out a florida college is a good one, she would most likely not put 2 & 2 together....

Hi! Joining the thread now although we booked this cruise onboard our last (and only) cruise. Haven't really been doing much planning until recently, but we have flights and pre-cruise hotel now, so its time to start thinking about excursions. Its just me and my mom, so two active adults. Anyone have plans yet for any of the days? Doing only Disney excursions or anyone branching off independently?

So happy to see all the new faces joining us! (though I still love the old faces too! )

We haven't done much planning yet, though our booking date is fast approaching, so I guess we'd better!
Personally, we like doing the Disney excursions, because we feel safer that we won't get left behind....three cruises ago, our tablemates wandered off on their own and didn't make it back to the ship. The Capt. delayed an hour, but we ended up sailing without them. Just the night before the wife was poo-pooing my rationalization as to why we pay 'extra' for a ship's excursion. Just my two cents, everyone has their own feelings and it's all good!

We haven't planned anything yet. We have done non cruise lines tours in the past but I am always worried about getting back to the ship. It comes down to comfort level. We will probably book a Costa Maya tour through DCL since the time we are there is so short, doesn't give me the cushion I like with booking independent. Cozumel, I usually stay on the ship and Mark likes to do the cooking classes. Grand Cayman we have been to, not sure what we will do there.

I am also thinking of doing the cooking class Salsa & Salsa. Love to eat chips & salsa.

Mark did one the last time and really enjoyed it. I think there are 2 different cooking classes if I remember correctly.
