Yes, he is quite the swimmer. He will be starting swimming lessons in the summer since he doesn't seem to know his limits (or actually he doesn't seem to have any) when it comes to water, so it's best to be prepared!! I don't think it ended up being much more than $25 because I am still on that family plan with my parents and they haven't asked me to pay it I already pay my portion of it, but if it had been a lot I'm sure they would have asked me to kick in some extra. It makes me so nervous so I just keep it off whenever I am cruising. I'm glad you like my report so far. I have stalled out a bit but I plan to post at least one more day on Sunday (I am working at night and it will be slooooooow) I am determined to have this TR done by Christmas/Dec 31st ish. Are you planning on another cruise soon? I have to say, I really liked the itinerary and if it wasn't for the new excitingness of the Dream, I would do this cruise again instead. I just am anxious to try out the Dream first. Thanks for the answer anyways! I bet the crew doesn't have much downtime at all, they always seemed to be everywhere! I just finished reading Cruise Confidential and the hours they work on the ships is RIDICULOUS!!
