I've started packing. I'm unsure what the weather will be like on sea days. Do you think I need any jeans? I'm guessing the night are on the cool side? Can we wear nice jeans to MDR dinner? I am such a casual person by nature.

wow! 30 days! It's getting so close for you guys!

I would take a pair of jeans just in case. You can wear them in the MDR just not at Palo.

I generally fly in jeans so I'll have those too. And no capris in Palo front hat I've read. I love my white capris. They look so nice with a dressy top and strappy sandals. I'm not really crying, it's more of a whine/cry.

Because we're flying SW and we get two bags free, we're bringing our biggest suitcases. One for clothes and one for FE stuff. The FE one will be half empty but you never know what fun things we'll pick in CC or Cozumel. I don't want to be held back due to a lack of space.

And now I need to decide if I want to bring anything on board. I had decided not to as we didn't have transportation but now that we'll be with my friend, wine or whatever is feasible.

You'll definitely need jeans, and probably a sweatshirt. They keep the theater so cold. I always wear jeans to the MDR, the only real 'rule' I've heard is they don't want men to wear shorts. People still do though and nobody says anything.

Good insight on the theater being cold. I freeze in the movies normally. I'm really going to try to not overpack. I did pretty good in Mexico, hoping the trend continues.

I'd surely decompensate.

I'm so happy with my decision to stay with our friends on arrival night. It'll be nice to catch up.

Do you bring any other food/drink on board other than your diet soda?

Did you change your flight to Friday, or will just see them Saturday? That'll definitely be nice to catch up

I actually don't even bring my soda, I just live with diet coke on board. It's never been convenient to stop at a store pre-cruise. But if there happens to be one near the hotel I'll definitely stop in. There is so much onboard to eat I've never thought about bringing any food. I know people bring their favorite alcoholic beverages onboard though, since that saves so much money.

I'll have access to a store if you want me to grab your soda? I may stop and grab some coffee creamer. Bringing alcohol can save a ton and if Michael was with me, we'd bring wine and booze for sure but with just, I won't drink more than a couple a day so not sure it's worth it. Me and Joshua have a plan: everyday we're both going to try the Drink of the Day, the boozy one for me and the non-boozy one for him. Our other goal is to have a Mickey Bar every night. I think we're up for the challenge.


I did not change the flights. I think overnight will be good. We'll have a nice dinner and evening, breakfast, and then head out without getting too comfortable or having to unpack.

Okay, glad I am not the only one thinking about my coffee creamer. Lol. I've been trying to work out a logical plan to keep it cold for that hour or so until or room is available.

Excellent goals to have!

Thanks so much for the offer I think I'll be ok. I looked up where the hotel is and there are a few places close by.
