The April Hawaii cruise had just over 300 kids. I think they had just 14 teens! I believe when we sailed last Thanksgiving and last spring break that there was just over 1000 kids, so a big difference! The kids on this cruise will probably be very spolied by the CMs in the Kids Clubs!

Oh my! I looked up those shoes - the most gorgeous ranging to the most godawful shoes I could never wear. The pair I LOVED the most were only 995. That is NINE HUNDRED NINETY FIVE and they weren't the most expensive. So much to love - if I ever won the lottery, I would have a dozen pairs in my closet, just to look at.

It won't be full by a long shot. My bet is 90% won't be at capacity.

Best guess either Cabo Night or PV night - probably the former, so that the entertainers can get off in PV.

It's a special menu and lots of Dis women choose to BE princesses and wear their tiaras.

16 days - LOVE to see LindaBabe's countdown tag!

Looking forward to Relaxin's post this Sunday!

Hope everyone had a nice turkey day. Just done emptying the turkey roaster and disinfecting my fridge from raw turkey juices. I think next year I have one thing on the menu...reservations!!!!
Ayuh. You find snark on a lot of the forums. Just give those posters a miss.

We got invited out for dinner. It was lovely and someone else cleaned up after. All the same, I am ready for

Two weeks can not come fast enough. First signs of winter. I drove to work in the rain, and left the office and felt some hard hitting my face. There is now something white covering the grass. Only 10 days of work, how am I going to focus?

If there is a Mexican night, I have a little Mexican jacket that may fit a girl in grade 6. I just put it in the Good Will bag, but if someone wants me to pack it for their daughter, I can see if it fits.

I am sure our kids are going to have an amazing time and I really want to give something extra to the Kids Club CMs. I feel like we are going to know the CMs so well after such a long and more intimate cruise.

I know there are MANY threads that discuss CM gifts, but some of the info is old and it's not always easy to know what is out of date. And I just can't believe that candy is really so popular!

I have not gone on a longer cruise before, do any of you "long cruise" veterans have some suggestions?

Thanks!

I nearly finished all my shopping during Black Friday (now Black Thursday) We call it "black ops"--my 3 dd fan out to various stores and I stay home as command central: canceling ops, diverting missions, online shopping, etc. We were all in bed by 1am. It was actually rather civilized "on the front, in the trenches" they said.

Can't believe we are only weeks away!! I haven't got ornaments, scrapbook layouts, dresses--nothing packed and not a single Christmas present wrapped My day job is really going to suffer the next couple of weeks.

We finally got our cruise documents on Friday - it took a bit longer, but then we are at the bottom of the world! The cruise feels real now that we have our luggage tags.

Dec is the end of the school year here in Oz, so we are busy with Awards nights, graduations, ballet concerts and the usual Christmas parties. My packing keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list, ah well, I guess all we really need are passports and a toothbrush!

Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

Gloomy out, but sunshine in our hearts, right?

I'm a long cruise vet, but just as clueless as you are. I would love to fill a Christmas stocking for my stateroom host, but no ideas what to put in it. I am bringing some thank you "favor" boxes with chocolate minis in them to go with my 'final' tip to the "casual" encounter, such as the barista in the Cove cafe. PS. I just did a search on cruise critic - the unanimous recommendation on many threads is CASH. That doesn't seem like much fun for the giver or the giftee.

Yup. you can buy everything else in LA. When do you actually fly, Rach?

Today, we will make Christmas here. Yesterday we opted for a nap instead

Happy Day, all!

It looks like Christmas here. Nice layer of snow, and no grass showing any more. I am sure it will be gone in a few days.

That's the nature of discussion boards and some people's need to be "right" or get the last word in.

Susan, I and our son Brian have been spending the holiday with Susan's mom in western Arkansas. Our daughter Katy spent the week with her husband Ed in Kansas. We will be on the Wonder before long! I look forward to the sunshine and warmer temperatures!

We have celebrated Thanksgiving with each side of the family, Sat breakfast at our house this morning (eggnog french toast), house is decorated for Christmas. I've wrapped a few presents and the cruise pile has moved from the top of a dresser to a suitcase. Christmas cards are my last big project. We are getting so close!! I can't wait!

Our dd is adopted from China. We figured all we really needed for such an enormous trip was a passport and a credit card! After that I stopped stressing over packing.

Two of my 'borrowed' granddaughters are from China. Such an absolute joy. But for trips to China, I guess that had to be a "high limit" credit card

Just got off the phone with a DCL CM. Our early dining with kids linked reservations is up to 16 cabins- Welcome LandPark Tudor.
She also assured us that we should get our *GT assignments this week sometime. Hopefully closer to Monday than Friday!
The CM is sailing on the Dream 12/9 so she has the same countdown as us. She asked how we were able to sail with so many people we know, and I told her we all just met on the disboards!
