The DISboards are such a wealth of information!

Aww that's very sweet of you to say so hun, it was a pain in the you know what to organise especially when they scrapped all the plans & came up with something new for more $$$'s the night before we boarded!!!!

However with all that said & done it was SO much fun have our own "session" in Sessions.

Hmmm... Did I meet you in the hallway when we were handing out cabin gifts and hook you up with Mandy and her kids? If so, glad you made it here! If not, glad you made it here anyway and ignore the part about meeting in the hallway.

NORMAN!!!! We miss you!!! Did Margaret give you that hug from Dennis and me? No, Margaret definitely does not drink! But she has got a knack for snagging a deck chair. Still one of my favorite pics of the cruise!


I wouldn't mind trying for JVD again, as we, shall we say, "missed the boat" last time, but I don't think I'll be able to talk Dennis in to it. Between the technical difficulties, sunburn, lack of shade, distance to shore, and the fact that he's not really a beach kind of guy, I'm pretty sure he'd prefer to stay on the ship and drink martinis.

Then again, I might be able to tempt him with the promise of an Exotic Rasul in exchange...

Totally off topic (I say this because we never, ever, go off topic here ). I should know better than to audition for a play when I haven't read the script. I got cast, then came home and read it. By the time I got to the end I was thinking, "Wow, this is really stupid, even for a farce." I mean, farce is supposed to be funny and implausible, but not stupid. Oh well. The show I really want to do goes up after this one, and it's been a while since I've been onstage, so I guess I'll just think of this as getting my acting chops back in shape. Besides, people here are so culture-deprived they'll love it, regardless. Not to mention the fact that I'll get a bit of turn-about on Dennis. All those nights I was the "theatre widow" while he was off playing stage manager - now it's his turn. (Uh oh, I just realized - our poor dogs are going to starve.)
Sounds like fun, I wish I could see you perform, can it be video taped?

We are on the Dream on Jan 15 but my booking is at AAA until it released. There is close to $1700. Can I take and use $1500 and keep $200 on the side. For a small cruise.. I am hoping to do a 4 night on the Dream next April or May.. We turn gold after our cruise in Jan.,

Morning everyone and to all old and new cruise friends. It's so nice to see so many familiar names returning to another - hopefully soon to be announced - fantastic WBTA

It is getting harder each day to concentrate on normal day to day doings such as work with all this excitement buzzing around!!!!

I am hoping that one it is confirmed and we have a booking that I can level my excitement to a more suitable level to keep me fairly "normal" for the next 21 months!!!

It was fantastic fun and everyone loved it, especially with all the hassle that came with it just before and during the course, you were a star !!!

I love Sessions, so that made it all the better for me

Don't forget her expensive jewellery too from St Maarten !!!

I can't say anything about Margaret's extensive dress collection, she saved my life on the first formal night when I had no clothes to wear

Morning All!!! I am going to try and keep up with ya'll today. Yesterday, after my last post I didn't check back until I go home from work. And...........5 more pages were added!!!!! Boy oh boy we are all excited about this being a possibility. I even talked to my TA to let her know that if this does become a reality, that DW and I wanted to be booked. I told her what we wanted - stateroom wise dining times and so forth. Of course she didn't have any info on this being a possibility, but she said she would get us booked as soon as Disney says this is a go.
