    Howdy!!! From Bryan-College Station!

    We will be on the ship on Tuesday with our clan of 4 kiddos!

    Madison is 12, Natalie 9, Kenley 6 and Colby 5!

    My husband and I cruise alone every year (another cruise line) so this is our FIRST FAMILY Cruise. My girls have been to Disney but they are thrilled about finally going on a cruise! (up until now they "thought" cruises were for adults only, haha) :rotfl:

    I'm SUPER late getting on here getting my last minute questions answered.. but with baseball, gymnastics, etc. its always crazy busy. I am sure I will throw in swimsuits the morning of!

    Can not wait for Tuesday! :) Happy Cruisin'!

    ((Anyone elses kids missing school??)) My oldest is a straight A Honor Class student so I made the tough choice of keeping her out of school this week. Fortuntely she will be just fine catching up but the teachers were not that thrilled. :/ They have missed 0 days up until this point.

    My mom and her husband will be traveling on this cruise as well. They are in their early-mid 50's. Just in case you guys may want to meet up for some adult time! :) --they are in 7052!

    We are just a couple doors down from you as well :)

    Is it too late to jump in on the FE activity?? I don't mind if we don't get anything- but we'd love to make some for the others!

    We are here already and it does look rather thick the front desk attendant said it will likely burn off. It was worse as we drove in late last night. Keep fingers crossed.

    Made it home. Glad to be home but am definitely missing the boat. Hope everyone has a good and safe journey home.

    So we loved, loved, loved our first cruise. Dealing with a bit of sea legs though. That last day was rough and the effects are lingering. I'm sure we will have our 'land legs' back soon. In the meantime, we are enjoying sharing our pics,videos, and memories with our loved ones back home!!

    My goodness--I think we will do 1 week cruises from now on. Bob and I figured we were on the road driving as much as we were on the sea.

    Wasn't that last day a rockin' rollin' adventure? We had a good time. Thanks to y'all who left us goodies in our FE. We enjoyed them all! Sorry we missed y'all at the meet up, but had a couple of little issues we needed to get resolved before sailing. Nothing horrible, but they couldn't wait.

    For anyone wondering about the Chocolate Tasting--awesome! The martini and mixology tastings--I have recipes. Palo was outstanding as always--the brunch fantastic. The dinner--I wish I could have taken my chocolate souffle back to the room as I was still feeling the effects of the rough seas. So I only ate half of it--HALF? The good news--I didn't gain any weight on this cruise!

    We agree!!! 7 nights or more from now on. Left the ship at 7:45 yesterday morning and didn't walk though our front door until 11pm! 4 nights was too short. :)

    Overall, it was a GREAT trip. Wish the weather had been a little better. DD got pretty sea sick that last day. The medicine I packed did help so I am glad I brought it. I felt fine until Animators that night. Not having windows does seem to make it worse. Hope everyone else made it home safe.

    I did the chocolate tasting too. I was actually running a bit late and was the last one there, but I had 12:29 on my watch so I am pretty sure they started early. My friend and I sat across from a nice couple who had sailed several times before. I will laugh if it turns out it was you ... What are the odds :)

    We were sitting at the first set of tables with our backs to the presenter. We actually moved for a group of four that came in later. Was that you? We were told that group was a group of 4 people that wanted to sit together.
