Cast Me My husband John Alyssa 14 Allison 12 First cruise for all of us. Dec 8th We left the Animal Kindgom Lodge on a rainy yucky Thursday morning about 9:30 and drove to Port Canaveral. Unloaded the luggage in the pouring rain and John went to park the truck while the girls and I waited for him Got through security about 11 and got a Number 2 boarding card. We had already checked in at the AKL so we just sat around and took some pictures of the decorations and then watched some TV until it was time to board. Went through the ears a little before 12 and were on the ship to hear, The VanWinkle family!! That was really cool!!!! Headed over to Parrot Cay for lunch and the girls were excited to see Max there! Wandered around a little while after lunch and checked out the Oceaneers Lab for Allison and the Aloft for Alyssa. Finally our room was ready (cat 6 #6532) so we went to check it out. John and Allison went to the shopping briefing at 3 while Alyssa and I took a little nap and unpacked. Then it was the lifeboat drill and the sail away celebration that had to be held indoors because of the weather. After that we went back to our room and waved goodbye from our rainy veranda. Went to dinner at Parrot Cay the first night (first seating) and had two wonderful servers. The sea was VERY rough that first day so halfway through dinner Alyssa felt sick and headed back to the room. Then John left before desert because he didnt feel well either. By the time I got back to the room Allison was feeling sick. I was going to try to go to Hercules at 8:30 by myself, but by the time 7:45 rolled around I too was sick!!! I was ok if I was on the verandah but as soon as I walked into the room I felt sick. So I ended up on the verandah until about 9:30 when I finally crawled into bed because it was getting cold outside!! Alyssa woke up at 11:15 and got dressed and went up to the Aloft to check out the teen activities that were going on. John woke up at 11:45 and said he was going to see the midnight showing of Narnia and asked Allison if she wanted to go, she said no, but the next morning she said she didnt remember him asking her and was mad because she wanted to see it!! Alyssa got in about 1:30 from the Aloft and John got back about 2ish and said Narnia was great. To be continued ..
