Drove 887 miles in 13 hours and 17 minutes with 4 [snack and gas] stops From Washington DC to the Radisson Hotel 1 mile from port
1Donít rush to the ship on boarding day, all you will do is wait. Go out to lunch in Cocoa Beach then leisurely board.
2 bring an extension cord if you have a lot of things to plug in, a real cord not those double plug things with multiple outlets they do not fit
3 an over the door shoe holder is a must we did not have one and we had shoes everywhere.
4 Clothespins to hang laundry in bathroom tub. [Clothes line provided]
5Suit for the men
6Black dress pants for ladies, goes with all tops
7 Beer mug cost 9.00 you get a 22oz beer for the price of a 16 oz 3.25
8 Soda mug cost $35.00 instead of $1.50 per soda
9 bring your beer or soda mug to the coffee-tea station the cups provided are only 10 oz
10 the stateroom with separate toilet room and shower room was very nice this gave us 2 sinks and 2 mirrors
11 come to dinner 5 minutes late you avoid the line that goes down the hall
12 make your kids go to all the live shows then let them go to their clubs
13 We liked the group called Escape
14 We liked the bar on deck 3 called Promenade
[helpful hint we are middle aged white folks]
15We liked the inside stateroom as it was $700 less and the room was dark so the kids slept longer especially after staying in their clubs till midnight [and we drank till midnight!!]
16 We had no reason to even use a cooler or pack a lunch.
17The safety meeting is a requirement but is also fun to watch.
your room supervisor takes your room number I guess if you don't go you are sent to the brig.
18 ALWAYS have your camera

Enjoy yourself. These are the "good old days" you're going to miss in the years ahead. - Author Unknown
So couldnít we all come to the conclusion that itís not the PLACE that counts, itís the people who contribute to it? - Delswife

If I may add one more. RELAX!! If you forget something it is not the end of the world. You WILL have the best time of your life even if you forgot something. As soon as you step foot on that ship take a very deep breath and experience the Magic or Wonder.
