By those ships I mean the Oasis ones, not the Disney ones. Gotta figure out how to edit on my phone still.

How about an NCL cruise in a suite with concierge service and a butler?!! Do you think you could convince Mark to try that?!! It's called "The Suite Life" and it lives up to its name! Some of the Suite categories are expensive (the suites on The Haven - the private deck!), others are less expensive than either Disney or the Oasis ships!

(Diana and I will be happy to give you any information and encouragement you might need!! )

Just something to think about!!

An NCL cruise would work as well, that way I can keep putting off the Oasis.

One thing about the Baltimore port, is that the ships have to be able to fit under the Bay Bridge, so we are guaranteed a smaller ship! Which is what we like...

Hope everyone had a great 4th and is managing to stay cool. I don't think our central air has shut off for the last three days and even Orlando is cooler!

Well, since I posted that, I am now booked for the Oasis. It had to happen sooner or later, and since I have friends sailing next April on it, it became sooner. But I must give a big shout out to Laura - I mentioned what you said about suites and I whined a bit about how small the cabins are on the Oasis and wah-la - I now have a "suite" (more like a normal hotel room ) with concierge service. Laura, could you now put in his head how I need a much bigger house and more vacation points?

And have a great cruise - can't wait to hear about it.

Yay for you!! (always glad to help a friend!! ) WAY more fun to cruise in a suite!

Not sure how I can assist with the bigger house and points, but where there's a will, there's a way!!

We are leaving in less than 14 hours and I haven't even started to think about packing yet. This will be so strange........ we're not meeting up with friends or family and we aren't going to a place we know well (we've heard lots of "WHAT???? You're NOT going to Disney???!!!!" )

JD and I will probably bore Tori to death!! She's hoping there are some cute 18-19 year old guys on board. Go figure!

Guess I better get busy.

Hope you all have a great week and I will be back with pictures next weekend!

No!! You have it down to a science. I am usually the early packer - needing at least a couple days to pull it all together! It's just that this time, for whatever reason, I am not *motivated* as I usually am (which for me equates to lazy!)

Anyway, I think I am lazy most days!
