    May 5th is already highlighted on my calendar!! :banana: Definitiely planning Palo..not sure if we will do dinner or brunch. Any advice? Also..can you get the souffles for dessert at brunch..that would make my decision for me! :lovestruc Probably doing some excursions..not sure yet which. A lot of people have said there is really no need to book anything for Key West... But I'm partial to the butterflies and the cats at Hemingway's house!

    I think you can get the souffles at brunch but don't quote me. Cats at Hemingway's house? My daughter would be stuffing some in her suitcase!! She sat outside a hotel in Florida for hours, trying to catch some stray kittens!! and we have 5 cats!!

    They are descendents of Hemingway's cats and they all have 6 toes! There is also a guy that does a show with his cats in the evenings somewhere downtown. They run around free! Sounds like a hoot!:lmao:

    Definitely want to book Palo, but may wait until boarding. I still haven't paid in full.

    Hello everyone!!!!

    We are sailing with you all!!!!:cool1::cool1:

    There will be 7 of us, Me and DD's ages 7 and 9. (This is our platinum sailing, woo hoo!)

    My mom, and my sister and her DD's ages 10 and 13.

    We are looking forward to a girls only cruise and are super excited about Key West!!

    I need details about Key West as I have never been (even though we live in FL)

    We want to just walk around-no DCL excursions.

    Welcome aboard! I think we will probably do Key West on our own too. We have never been either!

    We went last year on the Magic and we walked around on our own. We went to Mallory Square which is very close to the pier.

    The pier, by the way was fun to walk on. Many shops and fun stuff to look at.

    Everything is very close to the ship. We walked to Ripley's believe it or not museum and spent a very hot day in the a/c for a couple of hours, before taking the trolley to do more sightseeing. We hopped on and off the trolley as we liked. There is so much to see and do, I had wished the ship stayed there a bit longer.

    Good to know. any idea what the trolley cost? I'm assuming the trolley is walking distance from the ship.

    From another board, it looks like "Til we meet again" is the theme for the last night's dinner. I was wondering what it was going to be...

    Now I just have to get my hands on the menu. It's never too early to plan my meal!!:rotfl2:

    I think it was about 20 to 25 dollars per adult to ride all day. (kids were about half) They also gave us some coupons for places in Key West.

    Yes, the trolley was within walking distance from the ship.

    My wife and I will be on this cruise. Both of us are big Disney fans (we're actually going to DW next week) but have never been on a cruise before. We're going to celebrate our tenth anniversary.
