Oh! Well, good news/bad news, I guess. Congratulations on the employment!

He is one of the new knees. We are looking forward to a nice relaxing vacation, but enjoy meeting new friends! Please don't hesitate to introduce yourself to us!

We are 68 and 63. You will likely see us with BoosGram and her hubby most of the time, as well as another couple from here at home traveling with us. We are the biggest kids!

They should be pretty well matched, then! Sounds like there will be a decent sized batch of 4 yr olds and nearly 4 yr olds on this cruise. That should be great fun!

My hubby is 6'8". The biggest question people ask him is if he plays basketball so he always jokes back do you play miniature golf!

Ours are 7 & 10, hope a few older kids are on board! Want to do the kid meet and greet, but will not be boarding until 2pm - I think people are meeting up right after lunch!

I guess we also have a tall husband club going because mine is 6'6" and his cousin who is sailing with us is also over 6'

I feel for you! I am also in process of starting something new and it has been a bittersweet journey. At this point we are going on the cruise, so hopefully anyone who I work with will be understanding that the plans cannot be changed.

My husband is also part of that club, he is 6'4 and instead of getting the basketball player line, he gets the football player one.

I can fit in his pocket at 5'0 - yes, I could have played a munchkin in OZ - so we tend not to blend in so well either. My sister calls us an exclamation point couple, he's the tall part and i'm the little dot !!!!

Cool. I think he is a great speaker. I look forward to attending at least one of his talks.

Thanks for the responses! Looks like there will be a group of tall gentlemen on this ship! My dad will be part of this group as well. DH will feel a little left out, but I think he is used to it by now, our boys are 6'2 & 6'0! I got the basketball question myself, but for me, volleyball was my game!
