good Morning, Happy Cuisers!

No docs yet, but my husband received his new pair of shoes (one day after ordering). I sure wish I could order shoes and know they would fit on arrival!

Today is the first day of school here. The kids (AND their mother) are excited! We're going to meet her for coffee later, and hear all about it.

I love that you put please be kind. I know why though. I have been searching the Internet for advice on taking our 15 month old on the cruise and cannot believe some people's attitudes towards kids. Having not cruised with our son yet I don't have any experienced advice but if you get any great advice please pass it on.

DH and I do not have kids, and we thoroughly enjoy spending time together in both the kids sections, and the adults only sections. Some of our favorite memories have been sitting near families will small children and just watching them. The little ones are the kids that are a joy to watch bc they are excited by the smallest things. I can't give any advice, but anyone not supporting kids is prob on the wrong cruise.

Shore Excursions

Anyone schedule shore excursions outside of Disney? I am curious to see what you have planned! I haven't booked any yet and need to get my act together. Thanks!

We booked on Cozumel Mr. Sanchos Beach All Inclusive Day w/ horseback riding. Saw it recommended by several people. Booked dolphin swim and turtle farm on Grand Cayman but that was through Disney.

When we did the Western in May we did all our excursions away from the cruise line. Private charter to Stingray Sandbar in GC, standup paddle boarding in Costa Maya, and Xrails to Jade Caverns in Cozumel (so our under 18 teens could drive). This time its just the hubby & me. We're doing a manatee interaction in Cozumel booked away from the cruise line. Got a great price & its prepaid. Love it.

Our boys are 15 & 17. Been a few years since they were little guys. We're leaving them home for this cruise so we'll be kid-free but the little ones don't usually bother us either. It definitely brings back memories when we watch other little ones so its actually kinda nice. We enjoy reminiscing. Several years from now I hope to have grand-squirts to take cruising, too!

How was the stingray adventure. I have narrowed it down to that and turtles.

We enjoyed it. Not something you can do just anywhere or every day. I would definitely recommend it to anyone to experience at least once.

If we weren't kids first, we wouldn't be here! But anyway, I never cruised with babies but have three kids 22, 20 and 13. When they were babies, I just always went at their pace. When they are done, just be done and move on. Don't push them and you will have a blast!

And I always enjoy kids that I don't have to take care of
