Finally had enough time to read all the posts. We did not get home until very early in the AM Dec. 27, and was into work by 8:00AM. Then had our family Christmas yesterday.

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful FE gifts, and to Emily and Jeff in organizing events.

I can say this was our best cruise, and I think part of it was the people we met, the warmth, and the number of days. I could have stayed on the ship longer, but I did not feel rushed packing on the last day.

Looking forward to a year from now when we will be celebrating NYE on the Fantasy.

oops, forgot to thank Linda for the dresses. They both fit, but a little too snug for this cruise. They will be packed for the next cruise. DH like the red one the best.

DH & I miss Billy and our after dinner entertainment. PharmJenn, Billy is a great boy!

I have only ever been on floor 1 and 2, twice on both, and then actually once on 6, but it was a long time ago and we had great weather.
Thanks for the info. I was sad it was so rough on that last day, as we wanted to spend it at the pool. So DS spend the entire day in the club, which didn't phase him at all.

I have been at work everyday since we returned. Finally on my last night (8th) so can unpack, do laundry and finish a few Christmas gifts in the next couple days.
I thought most everyone was so very friendly, so hope future cruises we end up with as great a group as we have here. I was very rushed packing the last day, as we had the Friendship Rocks thing, then dinner, show, characters. So I got back to the room at 10:15pm to find the hallways empty and DH telling me I had missed putting the luggage out, but Lorenzo said he would come back . The disembarkation paperwork said 10pm, but Christian had said 10:30pm on his morning lecture, and it even scrolled across the screen during the rebroadcast. So I called guest services desperate for a pickup, as I didn't want to be lugging 6 suitcases around the next morning. Thankfully, they sent someone up about 15min later.

Patti, Billy loved visiting with your table. Every night he would ask between courses if he could go to your table. He loved playing with Rick, and stealing the Santa hat off Dougs' head.
He was showing his neighbor friend the hockey stick yesterday, so I think we are going to have to watch a hockey game this season so he knows what he is playing with!

If you match any of these descriptions, will you please pm me?

"Very young" (relative to me) Cute blonde with about a 10-12 month old girl baby

Beautiful woman with long reddish brown (or brownish red) hair

Chic 40s-ish couple - she has blonde hair and a 'silver' dress.

50s-ish couple seated - she has short dark hair and a dark outfit on - he had greyish hair.

I'm sure I'll be back with more.

There are some days that I feel I match all of the above. Older and younger that is. Walgreens is great when they have a picture sale. Even better though, Snapfish. We had all of ours printed for 1 cent. The only hang up is having to wait on them to be delivered by snail mail. Pictures are high quality though. Anyway, enjoyed meeting you and look forward to cruising with you again.

You may need to watch a rerun. There is a strike.

Good Morning Happy Cruisers!

Happy New Year to you all!

I ordered from Snapfish too - they came yesterday. Comparing snapfish with Walgreens, since they were both on my table, I find I like Snapfish better because they're glossy. But, there's nothing like the instant gratification that comes from Walgreens, AND no shipping.

It's awfully quiet around here without you guys! I miss my tablemates, art classes, 3 pm stitching circle, and always seeing someone I know. Back to cooking, cleaning, and making my own bed.

Dimples has been hibearnating since we got home, and didn't even get up for Christmas. She's having attention withdrawls, and probably won't get up until it's time to leave for Disneyworld.

Wishing everyone a Healthy, Happy & Prosperous New Year, filled with good health, fun times and Cruising!

After the cruise, we spent a week in Arizona with family and finally arrived back in Nevada on New Year's Eve, so I'll be unpacking today. What a fantastic cruise! We LOVED 14 nights of cruising, had a blast doing our very first FE (thanks for the great gifts), enjoyed the cabin crawl and the ornament exchange (thanks to the organizers). Meeting fellow DISboarders (our first time) made the cruise magical!

I was a bit fearful to finally step on the scale this morning, but was pleased that I only gained 5 lbs! After our 7 night cruise last December I gained 6-7 lbs. so walking laps on deck 4 and eating early dinner instead of late dinner must've made the difference. Our server made the comment early on that many cruisers arrive as "guests" but leave as "cargo". We cracked up laughing and often reminded ourselves that being cargo was not our goal.

Linda, I don't know the context of the photo you speak of, by my husband and I are in our 50's; I have short dark hair and he has grey hair.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We're already signed up for a church mission trip to the Dominican Republic in late May/early June or we'd probably book this.

WOW! 2 people $700 each. I looked. The airfare back is over $1100pp (and that's for the 37 hr flight) so I thought about it for less than 5 mins Would have been fun though.

Yeah, my reaction as well. Great price until I found out the airfare price. So Jim suggested a train ride to Paris then home. I didn't look but figure it is still too expensive. Would have been lots of fun.
How can we ever do less than 14nights now?

Plus, if you are going to be in Paris you have to add in a few days so you can do Disneyland Resort Paris right?

It was the cost of airfare (oh and not having a job yet!) that stopped me. Maybe next year!
