I keep having dreams of forgetting my purse with all of our passports at home. This is our first cruise out of Florida, so we can't run home and get them if we forget them. Ugh. I just can't wait to be on the ship. Then I will know it really happening.

I am almost all packed, just the last minute items that we can't pack until the morning we leave.

You are not the furthest behind--we haven't gotten our suitcases out of the basement yet and we leave Friday!

You are further ahead than I am! I have been busy working late every night to try and meet a deadline, which means nothing gets done for the trip. We leave Friday a.m., so I have tomorrow night to get it all done once I get home from work. At least I do have some of the things I need in a pile in the living room. Trying to not overpack for once. Yeah, right....

We like Cabanas better too!

Doing laundry as I speak!!! Packing little by little as well! Tomorrow my school has a half day so I hope for the classroom to be cleaned up and out of there at 1 just in time to clean my apt and go to my nails appt before I have to get DBF at MCO at 8:15pm!

Last minute questions (sorry!! for all the questions!!)

~Does anyone take a laptop/macbook/iPad with them? I won't be using it for internet but thought about uploading pictures daily? I'm guessing we'll be too busy to even do that but wanted to get everyone's thoughts.

~Also, I got a bunch of Disney Gift Cards for my birthday. Do they have to be used for ship board accounts or can you pay directly with them on the ship? Is CC room key only (except post office)???

~Friends of mine went on Carnival last summer and said they had to take their Passports with them at Nassau so I made a color copy of that and my license but do I need to make a copy of my birth cert too??

I'm sure there will be other things I'll think of along the way...

Thanks in advance!

I am bringing my ipad, but will probably not use it on the ship. Too much time afterwards to do pics, I'd rather enjoy the cruise while I can!

I believe you have to pay for everything with your room key- but you can go down and apply the giftcards to your account whenever you like throughout the cruise. I am bringing a GC too.

~Friends of mine went on Carnival last summer and said they had to take their Passports with them at Nassau so I made a color copy of that and my license but do I need to make a copy of my birth cert too??

This I can't remember- but they will make it very clear if passports are needed when you go to Nassau- and if they say that, you will only need the passport, not all those others (including a copy of your passport- they really only want the real thing). Although it is a good idea to make copies of the passport and keep in your room safe.


I'm sure there will be other things I'll think of along the way...

Thanks in advance!
Hope that helps- off to fold my mountain of laundry! See you all soon- safe and happy travels everyone!!

I think I am about finished packing. I have a full day of work tomorrow and then get to run home, change and drive two hours to the airport hotel. I am soooo looking forward to nicer, warmer weather. I don't even care if it rains as long as it is above 60 degrees. Looking forward to meeting everyone on Sunday. Safe travels all!

Thank you so much!!! I think if anything I'll stop by my apt after the cruise and get my macbook to take to French Quarter with me and do pictures there instead of lugging it around on Sunday on the ship before the room is ready!!

We are bring iPads. We have gone on two other cruises and brought them. We use them for movies and apps for the girls.

As for Nassau, I am pretty sure that you need a picture ID to get back on board (as well as your Disney ID). I think I remember that from our last trip. DH and I used our drivers license, not our passport, but your passport would work too.

I always bring a laptop for downloading photos each night.

You may use gift cards in the shops on board. I assume you can on CC as well but I'm not sure I can say we've done it.
