It is also my 50th birthday cruise (although it is not technically until a few days after Christmas) - this trip is my birthday present. It is also in celebration of our 21st anniversary 2 months ago, since we barely saw each other that day. Lastly, it is our delayed honeymoon. Since we never took a honeymoon due to being in school and having class to attend, we can always use that as an excuse to take a fancy trip. And truly, this will be our first trip without our 3 kids. So I am calling it a honeymoon! A DCL cruise is excellent for celebrating anything!

What wonderful news! The best possible. We are all so fortunate to be going on this cruise with our loved ones.

I just finished my FE's! They sort of expanded when I packed the baggies - I will have to compress them somehow to fly across the country, so sorry in advance for any squashed gifts!

We were hoping to meet some people with children her age and hopefully the cruise will be more enjoyable for her. Our 4 year old has never met a stranger and readily picks up on the activities. Must be something about being 4 and having no fears.This is our 6th cruise and we always mean to get in on the fun, but, our days are so filled up. We vowed that this cruise would be different. Thanks again and we look forward to the festivities.
We will be sure to include room 7598. It is so much fun to make the deliveries and see the decorated doors.

I imagine many of us with guaranteed rooms will get our room assignments this week. Does anyone remember where we send that info? Or do we edit the google FE document?

Tammy is still updating the list. I would say post your room assignment here in the thread or send her a PM. Last minute updates will be handled by Shirley (ChipperMerlin) at the Embarkation Meet in Promenade Lounge.

Celebrations

DH and I just had our 24th anniversary last week. Also December 24th is DH's birthday but he stopped celebrating that a few years ago!

AWESOME! What a WONDERful way to celebrate. I too am celebrating, although it is nothing like yours. I have lost 121 pounds since June of this year. I finally saw a pic of myself on last years MR Christmas cruise and was stunned by it. Hadn't really looked at myself in the mirror for years. What a difference. Can't wait for our usual waiter to see me. Don't think he will recognize me. This year I am limiting myself to one entree and no ice cream or sweets. I'm going to miss the all you can eat lobster night.

Took a look at your blog and would love to talk with you about the Med. Look forward to meeting you on the ship. Great website by the way.

I'll be celebrating my b'day on Dec 10th - I plan to spend some of the day in the spa. It's our 5th Disney cruise and I've never stepped foot in the spa, so figure this is a excuse to try it out!

Unfortunately, on our second Med cruise in 2010 I had trouble updating our blog using the cruise ship internet. The blogspot server was banned by their service so I ended up having to update through a proxy server and it just turned into a nightmare so I never finished the blog. Those blogs are fun to go back and revisit. I'll try to do one this year since we have so much time on the ship. Thanks for the kind comments on the web site. I've done quite a few for different things. It's really easy and best of all - it's FREE.

Just book SAS Transportation from the Miami Port to FLL since Disney says that are not providing that service.

Congrats on your weight loss! How inspiring. Keep up the good work! DH and I plan to exercise each morning to try to counteract the flood of food. A constant battle...

I will have to look up your town on a map. We just sent our oldest DS to college in Tuscaloosa, AL. I had not been to Alabama before last year, but really enjoyed our trip there!

We just got home from seeing the national tour of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Great production and now I'm really in the Disney mood!

So I've just checked the DCL site for the 10th time today and it's saying I am not able to modify my reservation at the moment...wonder if they're updating with GTY room assignments?
