Someone walked out with her bag, and we didnt pack 18 pairs of shoes for her! It took many trips to GS and manager of kids club to coerce them to send out a text to those who attended to ask them to please check their bag that it was indeed their's. Finally got her shoes back. But it was a pain in the rear. They sent out a text to tell us to collect our kids, but would not send one out 20 min later to please check bags when we noticed our's had been taken. We will have some sort of something to clip onto her bag this time to make sure it stands out. The staff checked each child out of the kids club that morning, but did not check that all the identical bags were who they belonged to (and they were preprinted with child's name). We couldn't take her to eat at a restaurant with no shoes.
What a pain! Glad it was finally worked out! I will be sure to check our bags.

We haven't seen it yet and we're hoping it's still showing on the Magic!

I used to work with a Scotsman. Loved listening to him talk.

I loved it, I actually laughed out loud in the cinema, some comedies don't even manage that.

Even I don't understand my husband sometimes and we have been together 12 years

Note to self for comment card:

Thanks for keeping this list up to date.

We've decided to go ahead and keep the early dining option. It's just going to work out better for us I believe.

It looks lonely for us to be the only ones on this list for the early dining option. Hopefully, somebody will join us!

Welcome to all the new people!!!


About jetlag and loosing hours.
My tip as an experienced traveler and traveling constantly with a minimum of 6 hour time difference, i would recommend this:
** Try to go to bed around the same time every night and try to wake up every day around the same time (for example bed 11pm and wake up 7 am) that way you keep a routine.
** Eat normal food every day as you do at home, do eat breakfast, linch, dinner as you would do at home and een when you're not hungry still eat.
** in my opinion this is the most important one:
Don't think all the time ohw now it is this and this time at home.... You're not at home you are on the ship amd there it is this time.
Stop calculating the time and try not to think about time changes. The longer you keep on thinking about it the more jetlagged you get.

I haven't had a jetlag once also bot on the EBtA in 2010...

Hopefully no fog for you guys - this past weekend was craziness!
I saw that on CruiseCritic - I believe a Princess cruise was quite a few hours late leaving Galveston? I looked at the webcam and couldn't see anything! Thought my laptop wasn't loading the screen properly

Which part of Scotland are you and your DH from? My mom is from Dunfermline, Fife so I am not too bad with the accents considering I'm half Scottish

Our daughter is also 6 when cruising! We're taking her out of the last 9 days of kindergarten for the year.
How was renting with enterprise? Do they have a shuttle to the port? We also are pulling our DD out of kindergarten and she's missing last 8 days of school! This is our 4th cruise and we've always gone with family, this will be the first time we are cruising on our own. How do you link up for dining? We definitely want to do this! My DD is a little shy and meeting kids her own age right away would be great for her!

We also have a DD who is 6 and if you want to link for late supper we would be in!!
We definitely would be in for dining! Having our DD meet kids early on is great! She loved the kids club before but only if she knows other kids in there! She's a little shy.

We debated early dining, but after talking to several people we decided to give late dining a chance. On our other 3 cruises we did early, so we have to see how this late one goes. It would be great to have our DDs meet. My dd does better in the kids club if she can meet friends beforehand and have someone to go in with! It's great to hear that there are so many her age on the boat! I was a little nervous that there wouldn't be!

I sent a PM to valbob (they started this thread) to see if she could update the first post. I think they haven't been on in awhile and don't know how much more information has been provided. But I was hoping they could update the first post with roll call, FE information, the info on linking dining, that kind of stuff. I didn't check in here for a while and boy did I get lost trying to catch up

With any luck they'll get an email letting them know that I sent a PM and be able to check back in. It looks as if she hasn't been here since late December. I hope all is well with them.

(An aside here, I started a meet thread recently having never done it before. Then I didn't check in for three weeks . I had no idea there was so much I needed to add to the first post.)
