Something to keep an eye on? Tropical Storm Erin has formed off the coast of Africa and could possibly be in the area of the eastern Caribbean late next week.

The National Weather Service Hurricane Center is a good site for non-sensationalized reports on tropical activity.

As my friend Alfred always said; "What, me worry?"

It's good to keep our eyes open, but way too early in the forecast to know where that storm will go or how much of a storm it will be by the time it affects land (or ships in the Caribbean). Meanwhile, I'm threatening the storm not to mess with us! I already had a trip derailed by a Hurricane Erin years ago. It didn't do a ton of damage, but was quite a nuisance.

If we have to have any involvement with tropical weather, I would rather it forced us to stay away from the real world a bit longer...

Perhaps I'm the jinx. We always vacation the last week of August. The kids' summer camp ends next week and school starts after labor day - so we have that week "gap" to fill anyway.Two years ago, we had to fly around Hurrican Irene on the way down to WDW. It didn't directly impact us once at WDW, but we for the first day and a half, we had to worry about the house back home. Last year, on the Dream, we had to deal with Tropical Storm Issac, which made our sea day pretty much a complete washout.

Thanks. We were definitely spoiled last year on the Dream as our stateroom was a 5-10 second walk to the laundry room. It was so convenient to just go over there and quickly iron something.

The latest conundrum...

If you get the Central Park Dining package it's $70 and includes Giovanni's, Chops and 150 Central Park. Basically, Giovanni's is free with the package. I want to eat at both Chops and 150 Central Park, and we are doing Giovanni's as a group. To package or not to package... My brain hurts. It's a good problem to have.

You will not regret eating at Giovani's Table twice in one cruise

Do we all have the same time for Giovanni's (if, so do we know what it is yet)? Or will we all have different times?



On the weather front, the latest from the NHC on Erin is all very god news. As per their 11am update, she will stay very weak (below tropical storm strength) and drift well north of the islands.

From every review I've read, I thought that would be highly likely.

We are still waiting on info from RCCL about this. As soon as we know we will let everyone on the cruise know.

First, thanks for joining the DIS Boards!

I'd be interested in hearing your take on the food in the Main Dining Room and in the Specialty Restaurants. Also, if you are drinkers, which lounges you enjoyed.

I've really enjoyed the chats! It has been great to get to know some of our group before the cruise. If you haven't joined us before, you should stop by this week!
