Packing

I also had every intention of finishing everything today. I did get my Fe packed but my grandkids got in the way. First Josh ,who is three ,stuck a bead up his nose at school. Met my daughter at the doctors office. Josh was very sorry and sad about it. I took Him to my house for the rest of the day. I then picked up the two Kindergarten kids (at different schools , of course). I wouldn't have it any other way, it's why I retired and couldn't get more joy from it. Maybe I can finish tomorrow the only thing on my "list" is to get 100 googlie eyes at Hobby Lobby for my grandson's 100 days of Kindergarten. Let's Cruise! Sherry

Is there a ferry we will need to take to get on the island? I know sometimes those can get backed up.

It depends on where you are coming from. Even then there are easy ways of avoiding the Bolivar Ferry. Most people I would imagine will be coming through Houston and that is a straight shot down I 45 with no ferry to worry about.

LOL - me too! I need that secret as well..... I am in Dallas and the wind is blowing that cold air in like nobody's business - if it doesn't get a whole lot warmer - I may not need a swim suit!

Can't wait to meet everyone on Friday!



Somehow I have to figure out how to get through 2 more days at work...

A quick question. I'm starting to pack, and I think I remember reading that the 4 night cruises have the special pirate night and an optional "dressy" night....does that sound right?

I thought ahead... well about a month ahead. I went on a diet on new years and wanted to lose 10lbs for the cruise.. I'm down 4.5 and that's just going to have to work!! LOL

I haven't been getting much work done this week!! I'm too freaking excited!!

There will be a Pirate night , it will most likely be the night we leave Cozumel . I am taking a semi dressy just in case we have an opportunity to dress up. Sherry

I am wondering about the Super Bowl - I would think that they will do something for this - but if Pirate Night is on Sunday night - it might be hard to do both. I am not going to be all that fused if I miss it - but I know my husband would like to see it. Mostly I just watch for the commercials. I guess they will have the game up for sure in Diversions, but had visions of watching the game up on the big screen on deck.

I called today to check on dinner attire and this is what they said:
Night 1-cruise casual
Night 2-Dressy, but not formal
Night 3-Pirate night
Night 4-cruise casual.

She said that you can wear jeans on the casual nights. I mainly was asking because we are bringing four guys!

Only one more night at home for us!!

We may not be there for the meet and greet AND our cabin has changed to 6143.

Can you update the sheet for me and/or make sure everyone knows at the meet in greet in case we don't make it. I'm hoping to be there, but we had to wait for DS' passport to check in online, and we got stuck with the 3:00 boarding time.
