Our group has booked a DCL minivan for 8hrs in Turkey - I pay the $$$ to DCL so I guess it's a Disney port excursion even though they are not choosing where we tour around...

We are leaving in less than 30 days - OMGosh!

We're doing Disney. I was wondering about the reroute also. Any guesses as to where they may reroute to?

I'm trying to get our seats for Delta. But since I don't have the reservation number for the airline, I can't access it online. Under the reservation on the DCL site, it only gives the flight numbers & times. I emailed DCL to try to get the Delta ticket reservation numbers. I get a email back today giving me a basic generic check your info on the website & go brought the airline for seat assignments blah blah blah.....not helpful at all! So now I have to try to find time during the week to call the DCL airline desk for help. Of course this is a crazy time of year with kids finishing up school projects, end of year recitals, play rehearsals, field days, I have about 6 meetings etc.

If we can't get seats together, I feel really bad for whoever has to sit next to my DD! She's a talker! Even on the redeye flights LOL. When we flew from JFK to London for the Baltic, it was a redeye and we thought she would sleep. Nope, she literally talked the entire flight! Drove us all insane! We had to take turns sitting next to her. Thankfully there were 4 adults. Even the flight attendants couldn't believe she was still going. And it was the same way back home. We're already fighting over who will sit next to her this time

I wonder if you just call Delta and talk to a customer service rep, if they can find your reservation just by your last names, flight numbers and dates? Seems like they should be able to pull up your reservation just by that info. That might be your best bet in trying to get seats together.

How old is your daughter? Is she old enough to sit by herself?

Worst case, if you do end up not all sitting together, I have found that sometimes if you ask another passenger to change seats so you can sit with who you are split up with, they will do that (as long as you aren't asking them to move to a less desirable seat, or you aren't asking them to split from their travel party).

Hopefully it'll all work out!

We are also doing a private tour in Kusadasi. At this point, I'm not going to worry about it until it gets closer to our cruise date!

Oh, how exciting!!! I'm glad they are getting sent out now... we leave on July 2, and I was worried ours might come after we leave. I can't wait to get ours!

Cruise documents a month early! Fantastic! That will go a long way to keep anxieties low. I am such a worry. Plan, plan plan!

We are also doing Disney excursions. Takes away the stress involved with doing it on our own. We always find Disney excursions are well worth it for us. The guides are usually very knowledgeable and we don't have to worry about being late to board the ship!

You are not alone! The pirate gear, heels and formal attire are all coming with us. Don't get many chances to wear them otherwise and they make those evenings special on the cruise. Also, I want the pictures!

I hear you. In fact, DH just rented a tux for the cruise through Cruiseline Formalwear. He'll wear the tux formal night and bring a shirt and tie for semi-formal night. It beats bringing a jacket and dress shoes in our luggage.

I was hoping to get cruise docs today since some already have . . . none for me yet, though. Do most people have them today?

Good, I'm not the only one! I am ridiculously excited about the prospect of getting the official cruise docs.
