Susan feels the same way. Can be a bit cool out on deck at night when you're cruising along at 20 knots.

I hope your dog will be okay. Nala has spinal disc disease and she has to keep inactive too. My friend is watching her, so she will be in good hands. We will have try not to worry about our dogs together.

Yah for no rain in LA! Last time it poured the entire time. I have a hoodie packed so hopefully won't be too cold.

Yes, I'm reading the boards, when I really need to finish packing . I got home from work at 6:30, had dinner (nibbles & bits from the frig...using up what's left over), cleaned a bathroom, and finished some paperwork for the MIL. Now, at 8:30ish, I'm tired but HAVE to finish packing. (And I'd really rather watch Rudolph ) We're driving to Philly tomorrow as soon as I get home from work (6:30ish), so all must be finished tonight. I can't believe it's finally here!!!

I totally understand the worriers. I'm not normally one, but I'm constantly thinking of things I need to do or could have done better. But, I'm fairly confident everything will go smoothly over the next several days....and then we'll be on the ship...Ahhhhh, life is good.

Safe travels everyone!!!

Thanks! So is it best to do excursions thru Disney or go thru a different company? I booked a few thru Disney but wonder about other options. And we would like to upgrade our room if possible on the day we board. Is this difficult to do? Any tips?

It depends. If you're fairly new to cruising and to booking your own excursions, it's probably best to stick with DCL. On upgrading, it too depends. From what others have said, it appears that there should be opportunity to do that for this cruise as we don't appear to be full. It also depends on what you originally booked...i.e., a specific room, room category or a guarantee. Best tip would be to get to the ship early to check on upgrades.

Welcome to your family. This is going to be a great cruise. Do check out Jeff's website, it has great information. We are all meeting at 2:30 pm in the Promenade lounge on deck 3 for a meet and greet on boarding day. See you then. Sherry

We upgraded at port this fall following specific advice from a thread on the Disboards. The trick is to arrive early, complete your check in as quickly as possible and ask for the supervisor's desk. At the supervisor's desk there will be another line. When you get to the front they will show you a list of upgrades available and the cost to upgrade from your current room to the new category. If you plan to upgrade have all your paperwork ready and signed to speed the check in process along. The most important thing is to check in first as there were cruisers getting into the supervisor's line to upgrade who had not checked in and they were sent away. Good luck!

Carry On Luggage Question

I'm been packing like mad all day trying to make it all fit but found a question I can't seem to locate an answer for online.

I understand that all the carry on bags have to be small enough to fit in the scanner but is there a limit to how many carry on bags we can bring on the ship? Just one per person or could I bring a carry on sized 22 inch rolling suitcase and a backpack/tote bag like you can on an airplane?

Thanks for you help!!

No limit on carry-on bags. As long as you're willing to carry it around until the rooms are ready, you can take as many as you like.

Welcome Karen and family! We are travelling with our DS, who just turned 5years yesterday. He will be thrilled to have even more boys his age!

As an aside, when I was telling him about all the new kids he was going to meet, he got worried and asked what if they didn't like him? (I think the kids in preschool play the "I don't like you" today "game") I told him none of kids will know each other, so everyone gets to be friends. He loves everyone, and I know he will fit in with any group he finds in the clubs/lab, pools and on excursions, but he sure was worried.
