I am just getting re-oriented and very bummed out about being home. I left the ship on a rainy/foggy morning and experienced delays getting home. That helped a little however the beautiful weather while on board spoiled me and then I came home to ice and snow. We did a land/sea package with airfare and transfers through DCL. I will start and finish later (work will call soon). Dec 1-3 at WDW stayed at POFQ We met in the hotel lobby at 11:45 a.m. and boarded a DCL bus at 12:15p.m. My DM (dear mother-age 70 and I-40 yo female) boarded the bus. The DCL staff in the hotel said the trip would take 1 hour and 20 mins. The trip took about 1 hour and 5 mins. They showed a video and then put on a G rated Disney movie for the rest of the time. We got off the boat within 5 minutes of arriving at the port. We went through the security check in and then up the escalator and past the check in. Minnie was available for pictures and autographs. We saw the model of the ship and through the ears we went. note: all persons who are not US citizens had to check in at the port Had our picture made at about 1:20 p.m. and boarded the boat. They were not allowing us to rooms. After they announced us they directed us to deck 9 to the buffet. In fact, I asked about Parrot Cay and was told they were full. We went directly to Parrot Cay. The buffet was great and plentiful and very few people were even in the restraunt yet. The shrimp were great!!! After lunch we went to our rooms and got our dining ticket and navigator. Mom worked on unpacking our day bags and I went up to try to get Palo reservations. By the time I got there 2:24p.m. or so Tuesday evening was full. We got the last Brunch reservation. 11:30 a.m. We went on the ships tour and that was great information and fun. The cruise cast member was great. Back to the room about 3:30 or so and our luggage was there. We were in room 2602, a category 9 room and Wintson was our stateroom Host--He was great, very kind, thoughtful and left very cute animals for the adults every night!! The drill well...was a drill. Back to the room for quick unpacking and up to deck 10 for the Sail Away party. This is not very imaginative trip report writing and more will come later. Please ask questions if you have them.
