Hmmm . Mickey forgot to wake me up this morning, and room service never brought breakfast . I guess I'll just have to get used to that . And, if someone could make my world stop swaying (although it's less noticeable than yesterday), I would be grateful .

Seriously, this was a fabulous trip. We loved our servers and tablemates (what a fun group!), and the ports were so much more interesting than I had anticipated. Hard to believe, a week ago, we were in Cartagena.

I just want to say a huge THANK YOU!!! for all the wonderful FE gifts we received. What fun we had being surprised every day.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL, FROM OUR LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD TO YOURS!!!

We made many new friends. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to cruising with you again. Looks like we will be cruising with the Tuckers on the Fantasy during Thanksgiving. May not be able to wait that long though. I hear the sea calling me, or maybe it's just the good food and the great service. Speaking of which, did anyone else gain 15 pounds? Already lost 10 by drinking distilled water. Just a tip for any of you who's rings and clothes are fitting a little tight today.
Yay! We'll see you at Thanksgiving! I gained 6 but have been drinking my distiller water. Merry Christmas!

Smile Back to the real world...

Great trip! Thanks to everyone who added to the fun. We so appreciate our wonderful tablemates (Arga) Arlene, Gary, and Sid. We appreciate Jeff and Susan for all they did to keep us organized. We loved all the ports and events. Smooth drive home from Miami, but going directly to Costco to buy Christmas party food was probably not the easiest adjustment back to the real world! And going back to work on Christmas Eve morning was an abrupt change from the "Wonder-ful" life.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Ok John, tell us more about Distilled water. Just drink it instead of tap? Or no food on top of that? My inaccurate weigh-in on Tuesday had me up 5lbs, so I think I only gained 3-4lbs. Pretty proud of myself; all those stairs, plus hauling all our luggage through 2 airports Monday helped.

Nothing is unpacked yet, I am back to work for the next 7 nights, and no fresh food yet in the house, so we have a long week ahead of us.
Met so many great new friends on this trip, DH is amazed at the community we have here (I may even get him to join)

A Big Thank you!!

Made it home after spending the night in Miami so Hubby could go to the Dolphins game. They won! Still unpacking and dealing with laundry but I'm taking breaks and planning our next cruise to the Med (hopefully).
I'm still in awe of the all the yummy, useful, fun and creative gifts on the FE exchange. A big thank you to everyone who made the trip memorable and special, FE, name tags, cabin crawl, website....

Came home to a small surprise, DH flipped the electricity off but forgot to leave the one on for the fridge and freezer. EVERYTHING was spoiled and smelled like a dead seal, literally! We've tried baking soda and water, coffee grounds, bleach and vinegar. There's still a slight smell so I'm holding my breath everytime I open the fridge!

Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

Ho boy. THAT was an expensive surprise!

You know what I miss MOST about not being on the ship any more? Not the dod, the service, the food. YOU. Not running into YOU guys. not sharing meals, meets, memories with YOU.

We went to the Dolphins game too as I've been a fan forever and it was my first time attending a home game. LOVED the experience! We're also doing the Med next year - June 15 Greece if our friends don't cancel. Which itinerary will you be on?

still at the top!

I love that our cruise meet is still at the top. makes sense since we all rocked! It is very weird not to run into all of you while walking around. Other than the first morning rocking hasn't been an issue, but no one making my bed is!

I started my trip report yesterday if you are interested...I'd love to have you guys all participate!

Hope everyone is returning to normal and enjoyed Christmas.

Got home to see that our Internet service had gone out. We were too tired to deal with it, and slept most of the day and until 11 AM today! After an hour on the phone with Comcast we got everything fixed.

I haven't gotten working on a trip report yet, but I have started uploading my pictures. Here's a link to the 430 +/- pictures Jim and I took on our Panama Canal day. They are uncaptioned, unedited and unsorted, but most if them are good. There may be a video or two in there, but I can't remember if I got those uploaded before we left Miami!

We had an incredible trip, and pictures and report will be coming as soon as I can get myself organized.

We arrived home today after spending Christmas with my cousin in Orlando. Just a few days ago, I couldnt remember what day of the week it was! LOL We had a wonderful trip and I just want to Thank everyone who dropped a little fish gift off for us. Love all the little memories floating around our house and luggage! (as usual, suitcases exploded when we got home!)

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Cynthia

My first travel blog

Loved meeting everyone either on the track (deck 4), in the halls, at the spa, at the DVC meetups, at mealtimes, or on the excursions.

Thanks for allowing us latecomers to participate in the FE. We enjoyed giving the Christmas tree/train sets as well as receiving all of the lovely thoughtful gifts.

Kudos to Jeff and Susan Spencer for the dynamic information on the website, nametags, and the stateroom crawl organization! What a lovely couple you are.

We could definitely take this cruise again. We're booked for the Med in August and on the Fantasy for Thanksgiving.

I started a travel blog during our cruise called www.nrgtucker.wordpress.comJourney Buffet. It was fun doing it and helps me to remember what happened. :-)

Hope to see ya real soon! Happy New Year!

Natalie & Melvin

We came home to a huge weather change. It snowed 9 inches in about 6 hours here in central Indiana. 12 inches an hour south of us. We skipped the 4 hour drive to my inlaws. I didn't want to be stuck down there all week. We unpacked, but stuff is still all over the house. We are catching up on our DVR and trying to stay warm. Our two doggies were super happy to see us. Our puppy will not let me out of his sight.
I do miss not having to cook. Plus we don't actually have any fresh food since we were gone, the holiday, and now it's a blizzard emergency outside.
I want to call room service and order a cheese plate and a mickey bar. Instead we have been eating the candy and goodies we got from the FE. The cheesy snacks were awesome.

So glad to have met so many of you. Thanks for all the awesome FE gifts. Everything was really cool. I didn't have to buy a single souvenir since we had so many cool magnets and ornaments and other things.

We love our tour in Columbia. Costa Maya was our favorite stop. Tropicanate was awesome. We want to do the transatlantic and Med cruise in a few years. Unless there is a great deal we have to save up. I did look up Travel with Allen so maybe we will see a good deal.

Thanks again everyone for all the hard work to make this cruise AMAZING!
