Welcome aboard! Be sure to come to the meet in the promenade lounge - we'll probably be there until at least 3:30 if you can't make it on the dot of 2:30.

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!
Good advice!

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!!
Should be no problem. I always have a roll on and a tote containing Miss Dimples.

(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.
Poor BABY! Little kids shouldn't have to worry about this stuff!!!!!

Everyone leaving today - wishing you a smooth journey!

Cartegena tourists I haven't had an answer on the paypal issue yet but I will keep you posted, either here or by pm or email.

Happy Day all!

My dd is 5 too and loves meeting new kids - everyone is instantly her new best friend. She loves running around with the boys too.

Just a reminder to those celebrating birthdays or Anniversaries- PLEASE be sure your stateroom number is on the roll call!

Half Marathon Challenge

Come up with a time and I'll put it up on the web site.
Does anyone know how many laps around Deck 4 make a mile? What about being on Deck 10? I wouldn't mind doing an extra lap up there if it meant not having to negotiate the engine room. With my balance and eye issues, it's not the safest place for me to be.

Thanks!

Safe journeys to everyone traveling today. We leave Saturday and I can't wait to see everyone on Sunday.

My DS6 doesn't know a stranger! He will think it is great that he has so many new friends. Some children can be so mean...

Is anybody else bringing their Elf on a Shelf? We had to leave him a note with very specific instructions on where to find us. My son also requested that our elf be told he will need some vacation clothes. It's a good thing that Barbie's friend Ken has clothes that fit the elf... I "think" he will be a stowaway on the plane and make an appearance mid-flight. Just don't turn me in to TSA!!! You can add that to the list of random vacation items that still have to be accomplished before we leave on Saturday. Along with re-packing (way too much stuff and way too heavy), finishing up scrap exchange, laundry, last minute shopping, hair, nails, and still going to work.

DCL Releases 2014 Itineraries

Just in case you haven't heard, DCL released partial 2014 itineraries yesterday and booking for gold/platinum started this morning. I am hoping for new itineraries but it appears I'd have to wait for the Magic summer schedule. Book 7-day Eastern on the Fantasy over 4th of July and was shocked at the price - $4800 for 2A1C in a 11C!! Chances of us actually taking that cruise is pretty slim.

Our Elf Gerald will be following us as well. I just don't know where he is going to hang out in her tiny Inside stateroom, but he does need to keep watching over us until Christmas. I think he may be bringing a swimsuit that he borrowed from Curious George.

3 laps = 1 mile on deck 4

Welcome, Welcome! 5 yo twin boys! How exciting. We have twin boys also, however they are 21 and not coming along this time. Twins are such fun. We look forward to meeting you all.

I didn't know if he would be able to find us or not. That's a good idea to leave a note. Don't you think so Autumn? (she's my little lurker on the boards)

Our very first cruise was in that room! It was going to be a "once in a lifetime". Who knew we'd ever take 15 DCL cruises (and counting)?

Welcome aboard! We are yet another family traveling with a 5 year old son. Seems as though they will have plenty of friends to hang out with.
