FYI - Last cruise was just before the hurricane and it was a little rough. Oldest daughter was not feeling well and we went to the bar to get a ginger ale and the bartender put extra ginger in it to help settle her stomach.

Never been before. The truth be the Caribbean, Alaska and Mexican Rivera are the only cruise destinations out of the 20 or so we have done. Everything you can advise us about would be great. We are flying right to London after the cruise and spending 2 nights.

Is there anything in particular you are interested in visiting whilst there? i.e Buckingham Palace, Tower of London?

I see the military discount for this cruise is $55 pp/day for a 9C - which is $770 + taxes. That's 50% off the current price of $1,540 pp plus taxes! I know the IGT/OGT/VGT fares won't be that low, but I am really tempted to move my onboard booking reservation for this cruise to something else while we wait to see what DCL offers after the PIF date. We are already booked in an 11C gty - so we can't go any lower!

I think I would be playing the gamble as well if not on a military or interline rate that's being offered right now.

I didn't mean 'bump' as in 'the posts' . I meant as in ' going back to work on two night shifts with very little sleep kind of bump'

UGH!!!

Today is the day I am so upset with Jet Blue....they CANCELED my flight from JFK to HOU - the rebook was either too early in the day (I am graduating on the 17th and won't be done before 2pm - that flight was at 245 with over an hour drive!) The flight the next day lands after the rental car is due back....sigh.

So, we are now booked on Air Tran out of Phili....via Chicago, landing 15 minutes later than the Jet Blue flight...we will be RUNNING to get the car (pickup has to be before 1am - we land at 12:15)

So my question is this - for those who have flown into Hobby - where are the rental car desks in comparison to the luggage carousels? And from the gates? Should we split up? one for luggage one for car? so many questions - I hope all you guys can help!!!

My newly retired father (also a DCL fan) has decided to join me on the cruise! Another Kiwi on the boat I decided a split bathroom would be a neccessity with the addition of a cabin mate, so have shifted from my 11C into a 10C.

We're staying at the Airport Marriott through Disney, but sadly won't be able to join up with anyone for drinks because we arrive after midnight and will be exhausted after about 17 hours in the air, all up

Now to go and catch-up on this thread,, I am way behind...

Just booked! We are a family of four, a boy and a girl (b-5) (g-10) and we are from Gilbert, Arizona. So excited. I've been wanting to take this trip for awhile. I fly for Southwest Airlines, any other airline people traveling?

Are you on Airtran or Southwest out of PHL? We are looking to fly Southwest via MDW that gets into HOU at 12:15AM Saturday. We might be on the same flight.

I can't help you with the airport questions as I have never been to HOU but I have heard it is a small airport and from my travel experiances, most rental places will stay open if your flight is delayed. I travel a lot for work and my flights has been delayed past their closing times before and they always have stayed open for me. Either for off-site pick up or onsite. They have my flight info in advance and know what flights they are waiting on.

I am not from London but have visited five times and have played tourist every trip as I am always traveling with people who have never been. I stay with friends so I can't comment on the hotels but can offer some of my must-do's! Also, I LOVE the tube. It is sooo easy to use and clean. You can get anywhere you need to get using it. Not sure how many days you will be there but my list includes:
British Museum-Roestta Stone is here
Buckingham Palace
Parliament/St. Stephen's Tower
Kensington Palace/Hyde Park
London Eye (Lots of money,though)
Tower Bridge
Tower of London
London Dungeon (if traveling with older kids)
