'Morning everyone! Hope everyone is ready for a lovely weekend! I just got my hair cut, and have an appt for a pedi at 12:30. Luggage has been pulled from the storage room and laundry is running!

Ok, you leaving Wednesday and just pulling your luggage today....Mine is out about 2-3 weeks before we leave....I have to start the "practice packing" since I dont have to put my summer clothes away till after the cruise....this way I know what I really need to bring and what to leave behind....I have such OCD when it comes to packing.....

I have been all over these boards and on cruise critic looking at picutres of the ship, I already told Wally we are hitting each bar (not at the same nite) and having a drink in each...plus there are other areas of the ship I cant wait to see....actually I just cant wait to see the whole darn thing in person



Chuck congrats for "stalkiing" and scoring the top

later

OH, but I have stacks and stacks of 'outfits'...Sulley won't pull the luggage for me until the weekend before a trip and it's on a shelf way above my head...so it would brain me if I tried! It's nested so I would be probably smushed!

The cats are mad at me because the guest room bedroom is where they like to sleep during the day and when we are getting ready for a trip, the bed is covered with stuff and bags...and I close the door. They will be happy when things are in the bags and I open the door back up. Little do they know that means they are headed to the 'spa' for 10 days!

Our server from the Dream who is now on the fantasy just posted on Facebook that they arrived back to the port and it was rough going for them. She said damage all over the ship.

Wow, hope everyone was OK. Did she say where the damage was? Inside or outside or both? I also read on cruise critic that the ship didnt dock at PC until 10am and brought in by three tug boats. They are still leaving late this evening. I am so glad that I am not cruising this week. This is the week we went last year...we sailed on 10-29-11.
I hope they have a good cruise once they hit open waters.

Oh no! Hope it wasn't too bad! One of the people in our cruise group had a friend on board and he said last night was wild, he actually slid out of bed at one point and everything in the room ended up on the floor. He said the Fantasy was a champ though!

Good luck to everyone preparing for the hurricane. I'm seeing some reports on the news here and they're estimating at least $1B of damage to be caused

Our house is early-mid 80s and just really dated and a hodge podge of styles and colors. But a home is really about the people who live and love in it We'll get there eventually.

We did our first cruise on P&O and sailed into the tail of a cyclone in Fiji and it was so rough. I vomited for the first couple of days and contemplated throwing myself off the ship at one stage. It was hilarious seeing so many people (myself included) walking like drunken sailors down the hallways, bouncing off the walls . But we didn't slide off the beds though.

Have a great day (8.11am Sunday) here

We missed a port on one of our other cruses due to bad weather. Saved on excursions and got credit for the port taxes. I do feel bad though for those who are on their first DCL and miss CC. It can be very disappointing.
We got to "meet" Sandy this week. Spent most of the time trying to stay ahead of the storm but it was still windy and rainy with rough seas--Angie

Hurricane season officially goes from June 1 thru December 1. We've been pretty lucky up until now when cruising in the fall, but I guess it finally caught up to us!

I think you should probably be able to get out on Wed. Things will probably be busy by the backup from the storm but you since you're confirmed you shouldn't have a problem. I saw that United is working with passengers to adjust schedules right now--imagine all the big carriers are too. Which airport are you using?
