Happy Sailing.
My parents love river cruises. So have fun! Do good things!

Okay glad it was nothing serious David! Had me worried thinking it was your son or something....


I'm looking at holiday scrubs (because I'm required to wear teal/Caribbean blue throughout the year. Only fun scrubs on the holidays) because my current ones don't fit. All the ones I'm finding and liking are Disney ones. Which I'm okay with, but I'm known as the Disney dork at work. I found a really rad Snow White, but more the Evil Queen/old lady with the apple theme that's really dark... thinking of that for Halloween or a Thor shirt. :D

Ohh, love the EQ/Apple Witch theme!! When I was a corpsman in the Navy, all we could wear was the green. :P Of course back then, there were no great colors and designs, etc. Guess I am dating myself!!!

Betty, sorry you and your DH won't be sailing with us. But, that Russian River cruise sounds great. Have a wonderful time on the river cruise and hope the WBPC is available for you in 2015. Hopefully we will meet on another Disney Cruise in the future!!!

We agree with Steve on this. We most usually cruise in the hurricane season as well, for the very same reasons Steve mentioned. We have never had a problem. We too feel confident that all will be well.

I third it! ships are well adept at going around storms if there are any and if you go to WDW in the summer, they can't move IT out of the path of a storm is the way I look at it!

The idea of the possibility of a hurricane never occurred to me until I watched the Weather Channel the other day and heard a report about one, but I know that cruises do a bang up job (no pun intended) of skirting around them but.....IT COULD MEAN AN EXTRA DAY ONBOARD so it maybe not be such a bad thing.

Dating yourself? Narcissist!! And what does your wife have to say about this?

I was an HM1, Coast Guard though, but went to several navy B schools. Didn't wear scrubs much as I was on independent duty most of the time. DW is a vet and lives in scrubs, could be why she spends so much on clothes prior to each cruise. I can't really dipute it when she says she has nothing to wear..

We HAVE cruised during hurricanes- KATRINA- when that was hitting NOLA, we were happily sailing out of Galveston, blissfully unaware of the devastation. I'm only concerned because with the canal, there is no going around any storm unless we head south to Cape Horn or stay on the west coast! Now, don't get me wrong, I do want to get to the Galapagos and Antarctica - just not on a PC cruise! I'm not going to worry since Disney doesn't have any Nov. cruises- if it's South America we head to, it's South America we head to!

Worst case scenario, we sail about while the Hurricane passes. Then make the crossing. But like I said before, the odds are remote.

Yeah my work is odd. Every job/department has a different color. X-ray/imaging has black/gray, RT brown, RNs wear navy, and aides wear teal/Caribbean blue. So days I'm allowed to wear other stuff: I go all out. Even my socks are an act of "I'm not just teal" I wear bright colored socks (today is either My Little Pony or Mickey Mouse with mustaches.).

Jimmy your wife sounds like me!

I don't have a wife.....I'm the wife. I don't think my DH would care.
