DH in slacks and long shirts?
I really like seeing my countdown too Weeeee 89 days peeps

I want to dress up as it may be our only opportunity to get a nice family picture. My husband is a businessman so he will most likely have a suit or suit jacket with dress slacks. Us ladies (me and dd14) will have our party dresses on

I've also been fascinated with the magnet boards... but I'm having trouble viewing all the graphics as when I click on the links it will only show one or two of millipies - whom I found were the nicest. I'm not sure how to request? Also, the cabana's are sold out? I couldn't even book any excursions until Dec. 25th and that's where I was told to look Oh well, I'll have to race for an umbrella as my body does not do well with heat. If all else fails I may just have to go back on the boat Waaaaaaaaa

Oh well, just saved $500 that's a good way to look at it. Time to get to work. See ya all soon

Hello everyone, I have not been on in forever. Juliebugg you are in our thoughts and prayers, I hope all goes well for you so you can come on this trip and have a good time. I read in earlier posts that some had questions about the water at CC. Well us Floridians were freezing our butts off, but my kids still went in the water(it will be 3 years ago). Also I know most of Floridas Spring Break is in March(the week we are on the cruise).

The Feb 1st cut off is fine with me for the FE. I guess when we get closer we will have a finally plan on it?

Hubby is away for work this week, when he gets back I will give you our state room #, have no clue where the paper work for that is. We are all paid, Palo is booked. WOO HOO.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. If you celebrate something else, have a good one.

I figured out as a first time cruiser I can only book any excursions, activities i.e. Palo's after Dec. 25th. I e-mailed Disney and they told me I won't even see what's available until after Dec. 25th so I guess if I ever become a repeat customer I can book earlier? Is that how it works? I was looking at Palo's and depending on the activities of my dd14 dh and I may getaway for a sunset dinner. Any idea what time would be best to enjoy the view?

This will be our first cruise...celebrating our 30th anniversary! We can start booking things on Christmas Day. I am thinking about spa treatments but I'm not sure of what else I should book. Anyone have any suggestions?

I've been reading alot about Palo's. It's a seperately priced dinner... I think an extra $15 pp but I heard it's worth it. If you time it just right they say the sunset dinner is something to see. 30 years CONGRATULATIONS. You should try this. They say the sunset times fill up so make sure you know the approximate time the sun goes down in that area.

Thank goodnes I dont have to clear snow here in Houston, Tx tomorrow is high of 65 with rain and Sunny this weekend with high of 57. Burr!! that's cold to me. We just drove to Florida for Christmas to see family/friends. My kids dislike the long drive, I dont like to drive stright through so we ended up stopping on the road and making it a 2 day drive. Cant wait to turn around and make the drive back to Florida for our first cruise.

Counting the days down

Counting the days down till we leave the snow and cold of Iowa and start our drive to FL. Trying to think of shore excursions for the family to do while in Nassau and Castaway Cay. We have a DS 16 and DD 13, any suggestions as to what I could suggest to them as options for while at port?

I'm counting down too - it's cold here!

We have booked Palo's for dinner but I don't think we are going to book anything else. I looked at a few of the old Navigators that they have on line and noticed that the Spa sometimes has specials, so we might book something at that point.

I really, really hope we get good weather. My first cruise was last year, first week of March, and the weather was just about perfect, so I am hoping for the same this time. Just dreaming about Castaway Cay...

Happy New Year Cruisin' Peeps!!

I hope everybody had wonderful holidays! Now that the holidays are behind us and we're in 2013, I'm really getting excited for our cruise!!

Plus- it was -11 degrees at our house this morning so I'm really looking forward to some sun and warm temps!!

Sorry no recommendations for excursions- DD and I are looking forward to just enjoying the ship the day we are in Nassau. That day is her 16th birthday and she has requested breakfast at Royal Palace on the ship and I may surprise her with a spa treatment.

Question for you seasoned cruisers- what was the most helpful thing you packed for your cruise? I have two- clothes pins and a small powerstrip. Powerstrip for charging our misc electronics (camera, ipod) and clothespins to keep the curtain closed between the bed and sitting area as well as to hang clothes on the clothes line you can pull across the tub.

Stay warm and happy planning!!

Liz
