    Lol! We may need to bring my DH's CPAP with us just in case! A year and a half ago he had his tonsils and things removed, and he very rarely snores anymore, but I'd hate to be trapped for 7 nights! Thanks for the reminder of that!

    I have a 3 ring binder that I keep ALL my important papers and need to knows in. I have them divided by specifics.. Like I have the flight info, resort info, designs that I made with the name of the designers, hints and things that I haven't thought of but need to remember:) Plus, any reservations that I have made..I use 4x6 cards for my reservations..I have all info on them..example: date I called and who I spoke with. Reservation # date and time of the reservation. On the back, I have time we were seated, how we were greeted, cost of meal and pictures of what we ate and if we liked it:) It is so much easier to take the 4x6 card with me so I have all the info in case they don't have my name..I also, use my cell phone # to make all reservations..

    I'll see if I can sneak some time and update the Excel doc with anything that might be in this thread that we missed in previous threads devoted to the subject. :)

    The cruise packing list has been updated and posted to the link in my signature. It now has updated links to airline, airport, port info along with the tips provided by vets for first-timers, and web resources.

    I hate to ask but I only read the boards on my phone, much easier to navigate. Could you post the link. It doesn't show signatures on the app version. Please and thank you. It would be greatly appreciated.

    No worries - I just realized it myself last night that signatures don't show.
    Here's the link.

    I discovered it's very cheap to have clothes pressed onboard ... so don't spend time ironing while on board.

    What is the definition of cheap? Standard dry cleaning prices or better? I have heard anywhere from $1.50 per shirt up to $3.00 per shirt!!

    Make sure to pack your morning outfit in a separate bag. The last night of the cruise, you will need to pack all your belongings and leave them in front of your cabin to be picked up by the stewards. You don't want to be the one leaving the ship in pj's and dirty teeth. Make sure everything you need to get ready in the morning is packed separate.

    What a great way to start the morning, woke up to an email from Disney telling me how close my cruise was ( as if I need telling :rotfl2:) and a nice message from one of our FE buddies.

    Now to persuade myself to get up & go to work
