We're meeting up on embarkation day at 3:00 in the Promenade Lounge. Hope you'll join us!
Yay I have a 4 year old son. I just learned about this site and fish extenders last night. Would you be interested in starting a last minute fish extender group. You can google fish extender if you arent sure what it is. Like I said I just learned last night and hate that I missed out on all the fun.

Also, is anyone else a bit OCD about the kids getting sick before or during the trip? we have had a sick Nov. /Dec with stomach flu, head cold and fever virus...i hope our immune systems are good and strong after fighting all this off over the last two months.
I am a nurse at a childrens hospital and there are so many sick kids. I am very nervous.

So did everyone watch the "excitement" yesterday with the Magic's late arrival and departure due to the fog? That was interesting to watch throughout the day. The port was closed until after lunch because of super dense fog conditions. We watched the Disney Magic then the Crown Princess dock via the webcams around 1:30 or 2 or something.

http://www.galveston.com/webcams/

Then yesterday evening we took a drive down to Galveston to see the ships and show the hubby where we're boarding our little fur-baby during our cruise. We ended up having dinner at Rainforest while we were there which was fun albeit loud. LOL! At 7:30 we passed by the terminals again and both ships were still boarding embarking passengers. We could see the Funnelvision bright thru the fog which made you wonder how being in port was affecting sail away, etc. But then, you know as long as you're onboard vacation has begun so it's all good. Right?

I checked the webcams, weather advisories, etc. before I went to bed at midnight or so. Both ships were still moored in place. When the sun went down yesterday evening the fog grew super-dense again. We were sure the ships weren't going anywhere last night.

This morning we looked at Marine Traffic and it looks like the ships escaped the port sometime around 3 a.m. or so. I wonder if the motion woke anyone. Well, I know it would wake me but not in a bad way. I'm quite sure there wasn't a sail away party in the wee hours. LOL! Maybe they had a Fog Party instead. I mean, really, does it matter what you're partying for once vacation has started??? The temps have dropped around 30 degrees or so overnight. I guess the wee hours were when the temperature finally tamed the fog.

Hubby and I both discussed several times "What if that was us???" Not to worry, tho. Even if the moisture is still in the air this Friday, the temps are supposed to be down so I don't see us getting the fog like that. Hang on, I need to knock on some wood, throw some salt over my shoulder, and do the good karma dance....

There was a lot of chatter on Facebook about it yesterday. They are saying as of 6:30 this morning it wasn't Rey far fom Galveston. I wonder who that affects their schedule? Will they get to all their ports on time?

The fact that between their stop in Cozumel and their disembarkation morning is only 1 at-sea day I don't see why the ship couldn't close the distance to their first port in time to maintain the schedule even with a ten or so hour delay in leaving the port. They had 2 at-sea days before their first port. That's also assuming that no other adverse conditions are between the ship and the first port. Worst case they may lose a few hours off their first port. Hopefully not.

8-night Bahamas

Hi all, I have a favor. I believe your cruise on january 18 is the first one with the new itinerary. I'm taking this cruise on may 10.

Was wondering if someone could let me know how the dining rotation works since Tuesday is open seating for disneyworld.

Also if anyone grabs some navigators that would be awesome!

Thank you!

Started doing more packing today, in between painting the living room so we could put our house back on the market when we are gone. DD was downstairs playing and all of a sudden the stinker came upstairs and was in the spare room. I go in to put more clothes in there and she's sitting there. She says "mommy, are you cleaning out your clothes that are too small too?" I said I am organizing. She says can I help? Haha. Nope. So we stopped and played. Will do the rest when she's in bed this week! Flying out Thursday! Can't wait!

Guess this is probably the last time we can pull the wool over her eyes right n front of her!
