It wouldn't have to be SAS it could be any company.
How much are the rooms? Do they offer free shuttle to Port?

The Colts moved, in the middle of the night, in 1984. The team didn't tell anyone, just moved out and Irsay didn't care what anyone said or thought. Even the players were stunned, and when they arrived at the locker rooms only their personal items, like deodorant, were there. Every other thing the Colts took with them. They had drafted John Elway and Elway had said he wasn't going to play for Irsay, and he didn't. Irsay was angry, and a disgrace to the NFL.

Except the Colts Marching Band. That was a separate organization, not owned by Irsay, and they wouldn't sell the name to him.

When teams play in Baltimore, they are listed by their team name on the scoreboard (49ers, Jets, Patriots). NOT the Colts. They are listed as Indy.

Just a little bitter...

Very interesting reading. I moved in 1968 when I got married so I really didn't remember exactly when they left only that they became the Indianapolis colts. Now ask me about the "skins" ..... Only team in DC as far as I'm concerned tho I did cheer for the Ravens in the Super Bowl cause I like Oher.

Question Panama Canal Crossing Certificates

For those of you who have crossed the Panama Canal before... have you purchased the Order of the Ditch certificates from Tiffany Publishing? If so, were you happy with the final product? Any issues with having the Captain sign them while onboard?

We would like to get these for our kids and then purchase a photo matte for it that we'd leave at Guest Services for the characters to sign. Thanks in advance for any feedback you might have!

Here's a link to the certificate for those of you who haven't seen them:

Yes you guys are going to love DCL! We don't have kids but really enjoy cruising on Disney. Make sure to make a Palo reservation when you can - it is a very yummy way to spend an evening & its romantic too.

I love cruising on Disney with my husband because we spend so much fun quality time together on the cruises. We do almost everything together, its so relaxing and yet we're giddy like children - playing fooseball, visiting characters, marveling at the shows. It really is an amazing experience.

I don't post very often, but figured it was time to chime in again. I wanted to let you know that DH had his knee replacement yesterday, and is doing well. So he can now officially be part of the new knee club on board!
You can also feel free to put us in the roll call ....... Me (Mary, 47 on Sat!) and DH (Jon, 47). We are OGT as well, so no room# yet. We are 10+ cruises with DCL and looking forward to the 14 nights.

Welcome to the new cruisers!

We have Palo reserved, I believe, for the 10th night. We're hoping that maybe on an earlier night, we can get on a waiting list. We're fairly open. I know we want to get to our rotational dining on the nights that it's the standard menu. A lot of those selections sound great. However, looking at the Navigator, it seems that the standard menus are only on nights 2, 3 and 4... unless I'm reading it wrong.

For our cruise, as of now, the rotational menus will be served nights 4,5,6.
