Happy 4th of July... Happy Birthday America
Hope everyone had a great 4th and is managing to stay cool. I don't think our central air has shut off for the last three days and even Orlando is cooler!
Well, since I posted that, I am now booked for the Oasis. It had to happen sooner or later, and since I have friends sailing next April on it, it became sooner. But I must give a big shout out to Laura - I mentioned what you said about suites and I whined a bit about how small the cabins are on the Oasis and wah-la - I now have a "suite" (more like a normal hotel room ) with concierge service. Laura, could you now put in his head how I need a much bigger house and more vacation points?
And have a great cruise - can't wait to hear about it.
Yay for you!! (always glad to help a friend!! ) WAY more fun to cruise in a suite!
Not sure how I can assist with the bigger house and points, but where there's a will, there's a way!!
We are leaving in less than 14 hours and I haven't even started to think about packing yet. This will be so strange........ we're not meeting up with friends or family and we aren't going to a place we know well (we've heard lots of "WHAT???? You're NOT going to Disney???!!!!" )
JD and I will probably bore Tori to death!! She's hoping there are some cute 18-19 year old guys on board. Go figure!
Guess I better get busy.
Hope you all have a great week and I will be back with pictures next weekend!
Sounds like you are taking the Brandi packing strategy
Mark packs that way for every single trip!
I'm not sure how it's going to work for me though!!!
I just can't get motivated! Or "lazy" has set in!!
JD used to be the same way. Something changed -- he's all packed and ready to go!!!
My mantra: I MUST start packing......... after dinner
So now your calling me lazy huh?
No!! You have it down to a science. I am usually the early packer - needing at least a couple days to pull it all together! It's just that this time, for whatever reason, I am not *motivated* as I usually am (which for me equates to lazy!)
Well I do have a list.... Again I am a list maker and it has been revised over the years...
Anyway, I think I am lazy most days!
I'm packed!!! (and I did it WITHOUT a list!!) I know I've forgotten something (or things! )...... hopefully they are things I can buy on the ship!!
Now if Tori would just get home....... she needs to start packing!!!
5:30am will be here before we know it!!
See ya when we get back!!
Hope and know that you will have an amazing time! Enjoy!
Laura, I know you are onboard enjoying your cruise and family. Just want to wish you a fantastic trip with many good surprises and some
I am getting so excited about our upcoming trip. The count down is now getting lower. I can't explain how excited I am about meeting you all and being at WDW again! Come on F&W schedule. I want to attend the Grand Marnier presentation....got to be available on my dates.
Have a great weekend everyone!
A quick "hi!" We just got home. Had a wonderful time on the cruise! Great first Carnival cruise -- yes, there will be more in the future!
Tracy, we docked next to "Allure of the Seas" in Nassau - I believe Oasis' sister ship! Carnival Ecstasy looked like a lifeboat next to Allure!!
I will post more later. Have to catch up on bills, laundry, cleaning........ then I can play again!!
Welcome home, Laura!
So glad you had a good time and it is the sister ship. Even when we were on the Dream it dwarfed some of the other ships. This should be nuts. I did warm up a bit to the cruise after seeing they have my FAVORITE wine by the glass and I can't get it anywhere by the glass.
Did you see the sale on NCL for just one more day. I'm thinking you want to go on a nine day Caribbean out of NY in late March in 2014 or maybe a seven day to the Bahamas, before the sale is over tomorrow.
We had the DCL Fantasy sail by us (they were first out of Port Canaveral on our departure day). What a beautiful sight! But when we saw Allure, I honestly couldn't believe her size!
I haven't seen the latest NCL sale, but we already have 2 NCL cruises booked for 2013 so I'm not allowed to book (or even look!! ) at any more! I think a 9-day out of NY would be great! You should book it - you can always cancel without penalty. You can also get a price adjustment in the future should the cost be lowered.
Welcome back! Glad to hear you had a great time!
Looks like some of the menus have been posted for the S&D classic:
Thanks! While we were on the ship, we saw a news report about a strip mall leveled in Fredericksburg by what they called "straight-line winds" Was that near you?
Thanks! It's the coming home part that gets me every time! It gets more difficult each time to get things caught up and organized here at home!!
Thanks for the link! I hope to find time later today to check it out!
