    In the past, it's been a visit to Parrot Cay. In the future, I may see about visiting the Aqua Duck depending on what boarding number we get.

    I don't know! I have so many things I WANT to do right away. I need to prioritize!

    I *think* I might let dd have some pool time right away since I hear they're not that crowded right after boarding. I'm hoping the Aqua Duck might be open, too. We'll just eat a quick lunch by the pool (even though I'd really like to try one of the restaurants!) Then we'll head to the concierge reception. I really want to explore the ship, too, but I think I'll wait until after the sail away party and before dinner to do that.

    To those that have cruised before...Does my plan sound workable?

    I'm actually anxious to see our cabin! (though I think we can't do that first, correct? cabins aren't ready right away?) This is our first cruise and it seems like a whole lot of planning and discussion went into where we will stay. I'm anxious to check it out, get settled. Stand on the verandah and see the action. Have the kids try the tv. Maybe that's silly, but it will be my home away from home for a week and I can't wait!

    Go straight to the pool deck and get a table, then wave down the first man / woman I see with a drink that has a little umbrella on it!:sail:

    This is a downer but we:
    Eat ....walk around until 1:30 ...go to room...DH and DD take a nap while I iron the weeks worth of outfits! That way no waiting in line to iron every night for dinner! I know it is boring...but not too much happening the first day until we set sail! The rest of our cruise is relax, relax, relax!

    Eat outside on deck 9, then get away as soon as we can (so others can have the table) relax near Cove Cafe until the rooms open. And I mean relax!

    If we are traveling with cruise virgins, though, we'll walk around the ship with them, showing off the various lounges, theater, secret deck - like giving a private guided tour :)

    2) Then get something to eat.
    3) Finally, change and go to the pool.

    Rockin' Bar D to hopefully get Palo brunch reservations since no more were available on line. You would think that with 14 days on board they would have enough brunch openings for everyone. But after that, drink of the day!

    Go to cabin, then off to the spa to book massages, then to get food, and finally go see the bozeman and get a nice little drink or two and let the relaxation begin.
