Uh oh, what's going to happen when Pens fans and Leafs fans meet a Wings fan?!?! Hoping they show a little hockey in one of the pubs.

Here in Michigan, it's finally warming up, but the wind still has a bit of a bite to it.

I have finals next week, trying not to over look them, but it's so hard with the cruise looming. My wife is in huge anticipation mode right now. Gonna have to get started on door magnets and packing after I finish the term.

CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Thank you so much for posting the link! My kids are super excited to see the port. I also am enjoying the sunshine and blue skies, it has become overcast here!

Doing laundry and packing today! The last week before we leave is going to be crazy, I am terrified I will forget something.

Did a little packing today. It's going to be interesting making all of our stuff fit in two carry-ons and a checked bag (empty as possible for souvenirs).

Thanks, I looked at a few on google, I'll hit the threads a bit later Sunday.
Sunday is D-Day at this house. The girls are to start pulling out what they'd like to wear (Mom will sort that ). Have an inkling what I want to do for FEs that shouldn't take more than a day or two. Of course that's constantly working on them. Fortunately my girls are rather self sufficient. We'll be celebrating hubbies 50th B-Day on this cruise he's a Cinco de Mayo baby. Central Maryland weather has been warming during the day, but the nights are still chilly. You'll love this !, went to a carnival today ! really weird to be at a carnival this early in the year, but hey, it was fun. Looking forward to little frosty drinks with umbrellas and someone waiting on me for a while.

Do you always leave the ship when it gets to Nassau ? This is our 2nd cruise and I'm an RA sufferer. Thought about just staying onboard instead of taking the insane walk thru the Atlantis Hotel. Any suggestions for shopping sites for my 14 yr old daughter ? She thinks she wants to see more of town, I'm chicken to take her, thoughts ?

We normally stay on the ship in Nassau. We've been to the straw market and what not (once was enough for us). We have thought about walking over to Queens staircase and the fort, so we'll see when the time comes. If we stay on board we usually catch a movie, ride the aqua duck, relax, etc.

We just signed up to the Disboards and we are looking forward so much to sailing on the 28th. This is our second Disney cruise. It will be us and our 10 year old son.

We were thinking of walking to the Queens Staircase. Has anyone else walked there from the port alone? Is it safe?

Welcome to disboards and welcome to the cruise!!

We have heard that many people have walked to Queen's Staircase, and we are thinking about it too. I'm not sure on the safety, but I'm guessing it will be safe enough for a group to walk.

A Sens fan???! Oh no, good thing there's no ice rink on the ship or you might have to ban me...sorry, just kidding! Couldn't resist! Hamm1207, i've always liked the Pens too! And i'm with you, DaPanMan, hope there's some hockey coverage onboard.

We're taking the jitney (bus) to the Sheraton ad using their beach. We've done the Atlantis Beach excursion a few times and it was good but expensive. The Sheraton will be about half the price. We've walked around the stores near the port many times and I always felt safe. Don't think we've gone to the Queen's Staircase but I've heard other people do this with no issues.

I had to talk my youngest OUT of putting mini sticks in his suitcase. Or we would have had a tournament happening in the halls! They go everywhere with him. Told him this was a vacation and Mommy needed a break from all things hockey, so I will live with game updates.

Kids were glued to the computer yesterday watching the ships leave Port Canaveral. I think it made the whole thing more real for them.
