Great feeling isn't it. I can hear the horn now, but that might be because I am listening to it on YouTube.

Awesome! Got my door Disigns done too! Starting the packing...must pack for me, Dh and DS and oversee my two DD!! We are also visiting WDW before and after the cruise so I have so many things in my head! Also, finishing the Christmas shopping so that will be done and off my mind while on the vacation!

We only have 6 days left! We drive to Philly on Monday, stay overnight and and have an early flight on Tuesday! We will be in Magic Kingdom by lunchtime...yippee!

You know I am planning and coordinating outfits for 5 people, does anyone care to venture their thoughts on if they think the "dress-up night" would be likely to be Thursday night (Thanksgiving)? It would sort of make sense, but is it usually the at-sea day or one of the other days?

Can't wait...hope everyone has a wonderful time!

Weather report!

Unfortunately, the weather looks to be a little less than ideal Wednesday. Please drive safely.

For those (like myself) who are a little bit concerned about motion sickness, remember to take any precautions (Dramamine, Bonine, etc.) before you begin to feel the effects. I plan to wear a patch behind my ear, drink lots of water, and avoid heavy/greasy foods Wednesday. I also started taking Ginger tablets. For me, the side effects of meds is 1000x less than the feeling of sea sickness!

Wednesday
West winds 20 to 25 knots diminishing to 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon. Seas 5 to 7 feet. Rough on the intracoastal waters. Showers likely and chance of thunderstorms in the morning.
Wednesday Night
Northwest winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 4 to 6 feet. Choppy on the intracoastal waters.

Small Craft Advisory
Statement as of 3:49 PM EST on November 25, 2013
... Small Craft Advisory now in effect until 7 PM EST Wednesday...

* Winds will remain strong as they continue to veer to the south and
southwest Tuesday night through Wednesday.

Seas will remain 6 to 8 feet near shore and up to around 9 to 11 feet offshore.
(Hmmm - this seems to contradict above)


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 20 to 33 knots
and/or seas 5 to 7 feet or higher... are expected to produce
hazardous conditions for small craft. Inexperienced boaters...
especially those operating smaller vessels... should avoid
navigating in these conditions.

Tuesday

82°F | 67°F
Thunderstorms
Mostly cloudy and breezy with t-storms in the morning. Mostly cloudy and breezy with t-storms in the afternoon. Mostly cloudy with a couple of t-storms in the evening. A few strong t-storms; mostly cloudy overnight.

Wednesday

72°F | 44°F
Partly Sunny
Windy and less humid with clouds and sun for the morning. Mostly sunny, windy and less humid in the afternoon. Clear and much colder in the evening. Clear and much colder overnight.

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the great and creative FE gifts...you rock! Destiny and I had so much fun looking at everything and delivering our items. We are going on the DVC members only cruise in August as well as the Christmas cruise next year; any of you going in either of those? If so, let me know. I'll plan a cool meet and greet party. Happy Holidays and thanks again! Muah

Back to the grind..

I'm sure I passed by some of you .. or rode up/down the elevator ..

Weather wasn't as bad as I thought, but we had a great day at Castaway Cay (according to Christian, the forecast was 5in of rain).

All in all, a fantastic Thanksgiving cruise!
