So I'm sure there's an easier way, (Depending on what spot you log into, you may have to go to online check in first, then click edit documents) but what I do is, log in and under cruise summary click where it says onboard account. Click to edit one of the passengers. First is payment information and then payment coverage. There is the lists of room numbers and passengers that you are linked with. On a side note, if anyone would like to grant charging privileges to my girls, I'm ok with that. Don't make any changes, just click on return to overview. If anyone knows how to check dining rotation, I'd love some help.

That worked. Wow, the list for early dining group looks so large when listed out like that. 35 people on mine.

I can see that we are linked with magicmaker1, mug318ca, holula, haileyboo, chrissyt27, the Howells and the Judish families by looking at my reservations but I think there were 4 couples at 1 table and then a few families/couples with us at another table. Is the info on Jeffs Meets tab how we are grouped? I'll get it straight by the time we sail. The days are flying by.
Sounds like all the reservation are linked. If you want the seating to be a particular way, I'd establish that and then call DCL back and have the request put on your reservation.

The EBPC 2013 ends in Galveston. So I think they just have a glitch.

At least the picture of our itinerary still shows us going to Miami.

For the women who are dressing up for formal nights - are you doing a full gown on both nights or are you getting more "dressed up" on one night or the other? I have one long gown that I would like to wear and one shorter gown but I can't decide which to wear on what night. People have talked about one night being a Prince and Princess night - which of the formal nights is that? Might make more sense to wear the long gown that night...

I haven't worn a gown in years. And just for the record, I don't wear heels either, but I will do my hair nicely and wear makeup! I'm old enough to do what I want, right?

I have a nice formal suit for one night, and haven't quite decided what to wear for the other night. I'm not even sure that my outfits really meet the definition of "formal". DH will wear his tux both nights, and also the night we go to Palo (Pirate Night), since that one will be our anniversary celebration, and he LIKES wearing a tux--maybe because it's all matched up for him and he can't go wrong ! For semi-formal night I have a nice sparkly top which will go with the pants from formal night.

seasickness

Since DH and I have never cruised before, we have no idea if we will feel the effects of seasickness. Maybe taking a 2 week cruise was not the best way to find out? I don't really anticipate a problem because we have both been on smaller vessels such as ferries and we have not had any problems and neither of us really suffer from motionsickness. But if we do, what do people suggest is the best medication to have on hand for seasickness? I think that I will be so busy during the day that I will forget that I am floating on top of a vast, dark, scary, body of water containing man eating creatures such as sharks (at least, I hope that I will forget)! But I am worried about nightime and lying in my bed. Do you feel the motion of the waves a lot? Does is get worrisome at times? I know we all have to die sometime, I just prefer not to do it by drowning or being eaten by sharks. Any suggestions for combatting panic attacks in the middle of the night?

My little one was having the same problem. I changed the instructions a little. See if that helps.

I hear you! On our first (and only other) cruise I could have stocked my own pharmacy I had so many different medications. I was thrilled when shopping at the Cocoa Beach Publix to discover a vast selection of product not available in Canada and bought even more! In the end we didn't use any of it--to my relief. I shall be bringing it all with me again this time--just in case! Actually I'll bring even more since this cruise is twice as long. Just in case.

I also have little twinges of anxiety about the deep, dark ocean. I can't even watch documentaries about the Titanic and movies like The Deep--no way!!!! I found I never even thought of that while on board. And this time I suspect with so many new DIS friends to visit with that these concerns will fade even further.

I deal with nighttime anxiety of the type you mention by taking a sleeping pill. This works like a charm. And has the added benefit of rendering me oblivious to my DH's snoring. He claims that I am the one who snores, but I am sure he is simply mistaken!

Unfortunately, I tend to get VERY seasick, but it doesn't stop me from cruising or doing anything. I use the seabands and eat green apples (thanks to a DIS'er for that suggestion!!!!) and have found that helps a whole lot. I don't like taking medication when I can do without it. The good thing about seasickness is that you know what it is, and you know that it will go away. Strangely, keeping food in my stomach tends to help a lot, as does being outside, or even being able to see outside. We've been on a few cruises with some really bad weather, but my last four cruises had absolutely perfect weather. On my cruise to Canada in September, the water was so still and smooth that it actually looked like it was fake water. The best thing to do is keep your mind off the fact that the ship is moving, and don't stand or sit still.

I don't worry about being out in the middle of nowhere or being eaten by sea creatures. I don't worry about things that I can't fix, and once I'm on the ship I can't fix where it goes!

I called and we are all still linked. I believe the best thing to do is call if you want a particular rotation. I am not partial to any particular rotation but the less time spent in Parrot Cay the better.

It was my DD's birthday on Monday and my DW's on Tuesday. DD was born at 11:59PM as my DW didn't want to share her birthday. Anyway, my DD and her boyfriend (both CM's) booked a room at the Disneyland Hotel. After their stay, the hotel offered an additional night at the same CM rate. So I took the room on night 2 for myself and my DW. Very nice time. I have never stayed at the DL Hotel, though I have been in the rooms of others who had.

These quickie vacations are very hard to recover from.
