Yeah!
My DD will be 12 on the cruise. Not quite 13!

Yes I always make it at least for opening day so will be there on 4/13 leaving DH and the girls (our two long hair dachshunds) behind to meet up with my BFF. Also try to catch a few games on the east coast like in DC. Of course I came home in 2010 for games 1 & 2 of the World Series. Sue

Hi Marianne
DSIS who is coming with us is also a native Californian so my group of 7 has 3 of us! My BIL says he should count because he has been married to DSIS for over 30 years. Told him since he has never lived a day in CA he doesnt count! Sue

Geri,

I noticed that you are from the Northern Bay Area. DW(Laura) grew up in San Jose and did her undergraduate work at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

I can't help it, I bring West Texas to wherever I go. You know West Texas, every spring it gets in your clothes, lungs and hair, and there's not a thing you can do but take it with you.

Bill

You will probably run into us quite a bit as my DH has been a diehard Giants fan for a very long time, even when they weren't doing so well. And following in his fathers footsteps so is my DS. They strut around in their Giants and 49er and Sharks t-shirts pretty proudly. Feel free to stop us any time!
Back to catch up on the rest of these posts!
I am bouncing back between reading posts and going through all the slides on the DCL website for the different ports. I keep asking myself, how the heck are we going to fit all we want to see in this cruise. You repeat cruisers have already answered me. BOOK ANOTHER CRUISE! The other question to be determined is how many days earlier do we fly in. I am thinking using DVC points for DLP. But it is a ways away. Off to plan

Be sure you leave time in your pre-cruise plans to see Barcelona if you've not been there before. We made the mistake of not allowing time to see Barcelona before so we missed it as a port of call. We were so used to sailing from Port Canaveral which to us is just a departure point whereas Barcelona was more than that. Or stay later at the end to see the city before heading for home.

In 2007, we took an early flight from Paris went straight to the Magic from the airport, checked in and then took a cab to Sagrada Familia. We then walked to La Rambla, towards the end (near the Columbus statue) we grabbed another cab back to the port. We had a good 3 hours to soak up the city

No way... are you really from San Carlos, CA? So, am I. I grew up on Tamarack two house down from St Charles and Brittain Acres. I live in Sacramento and have been here since college. I haven't been home in years since nobody I know really lives there any more. What a small world? What street did you live on? I went to Brittain Acres, Central Middle School and Sequoia HS. San Carlos HS closed the year I started high school. My brother went there 3 years and finished his senior year at Sequoia.

I finally was able to book this cruise. It's me, DH, DS (9), DS (6) (at time of cruise). I was really surprised how expensive this one is. I guess we were really spoiled with the mega discount Disney put out for the Med cruise back in May 2010. Here's to hoping they will do something like that again. In the meantime, I can save up and hope that DH agrees on doing the trip.

Grizbuzz, welcome to the list!
Both of my boys went to FSU so have spent some time there and sent lots of $$$. They graduated in 08 & 10. We have lots of Publix now. I would love to be closer but the Air force sent us here and I love the beach!!!
