WOW, how unusual is that?!

I can not believe how close we are getting, VERY exciting!!

Anyone who has been before, what are a few suggestion you have for 1st timers? What are foods, that you have to try while on board?

I have booked a GTY verrandah cabin but still no room number assigned yet. Was thinking of booking blue lagoon island in bahamas - anyone have any experience of this?
Ps there will be me, hubby and daughter 7 xx
Glad you're joining us!

Anyone who has been before, what are a few suggestion you have for 1st timers? What are foods, that you have to try while on board?
My family LOVES the Pan-seared Sea Bass at Enchanted Garden. On our last cruise EG also had Prime Rib (instead of The Tuna Salad they show online) that was very good.
DS said he really liked the Roasted Wild Boar Tenderloin at Royal Palace and will be getting that again. We all like the Escargots Gratinés at RP too.
I was not impressed by the White Shrimp Pennette Pasta at Animator's Palate. I don't know why I didn't get the Grilled Pacific Black Cod instead. I will be trying that this time around.
I didn't care for any of the desserts. I've been told to try the Grand Marnier Soufflé at RP. I've also heard that the ice cream sundaes are good.
I've never had lamb and have always wanted to try it, but I completely forgot about it when we were at the embarkation lunch last cruise. It's a must do/eat this time.

If you're parking at the port, I suggest parking on level 3 of the garage. You can walk right across the bridge to the terminal from there. We have 11-11:30am port arrival time again and plan to get there around 11:20. We walked right on the ship after a quick check-in last time, worked out perfectly.

If you don't care about the embarkation photo, skip it instead of standing in line.

If you don't get a Navigator at check-in, go to Guest Services and grab one, before you head to lunch or the pool deck. We didn't get one and had to go back down after lunch at Cabanas.

I've heard there's a very short wait for the AquaDuck, if you get on the ship early (around noon). People have suggested wearing swimsuits under your clothes.

You will be assigned a breakfast time & restaurant on the last morning. It will be where you had dinner the night before. If you have early dinner, breakfast will be at 6:45am; late dinner, your breakfast will be at 8am. You do NOT have to go to this. Cabanas will be open and serving food from 6:30 to 8:30am, but you can sit there and eat until 9-9:15am.

You and your luggage have to be out of your stateroom by 8am the last morning.

If you don't want to carry your own luggage off the ship, it must be outside your door between 8:30 and 10:30pm. I put mine out at 10:40pm and they didn't take it.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'd be more than happy to answer them, if I can.

We got ours last week My husband and I sat and looked through the book and ooohhed and ahhhhed, LOL

Thank you for all of the Food suggestions and tips!! I have been writing everything I read from the boards, ext. So much to remember but am sure it will be great!

I was wondering, can you request specific tables or places in the restaurant. I assume if you can, it is not guaranteed. I have already asked my TA and she said no, but wondering if I can call directly to Disney on this one? For example in the Enchanted garden it looks like only a few of the tables are the round ones that are similar looking to the tea cups, which would be fun. As well as being on a wall near crush or a wall for the animators dinner or near a window at Royal Palace?

Yes, you can make those requests. I asked for a teacup table for the 3 of us. My TA said he would add it to my reservation. We sat in bad locations in all 3 restaurants last time and I wanted to see if we could get something better this time.

I don't know if you can fit 5 people at a teacup table though.

Hmm, We are going to through small world vacations, haven't been extremely pleased with their services so far. I think I will call Disney to see if they can add it for us.

Any suggestions for seating placements?

Conex4, I'm glad you joined our Fe!!!

I received our Disney little spiral bound book today!! So exciting!

I tried on a dress and I was practicing what I imagined to be my "Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's" updo hairdo this afternoon and my 12 yr old son told me I had "Snooky" hair! lol
