Sounds great! I'm glad you found a solution that works for you. I always prefer to be within driving distance of port on sailing day, no matter which one we're leaving from. We flew in the day before to LAX and will do the same for Vancouver/Alaska next year. Makes things MUCH less stressful and gives a buffer in case of flight delays.

That was my thinking exactly. Well, it was actually the Guest Services rep's thinking when he suggested coming a day early.

My last cruise was when I still lived in Tampa...we just drove to Port Canaveral. I hadn't even considered how stressful (or devastating) a flight delay/cancellation on sailing day would be.

I really appreciate your kind offer to try to send us buttons if we couldn't get them.

Yes, we're very spoiled just being able to get in the car and drive an hour to the port. It's really fabulous.

You're very welcome, I would have been happy to do it.

Of course, I'd be happy to PayPal the cost of postage to you.

UPDATE: A better solution...I decided to change our plans a little. We are going to fly down the day before our cruise and stay at Boardwalk Villas that night. That way, we can relax, have a nice meal that evening, and head to the port the next morning without stress. I will sneak away and get two "Just Engaged" buttons from Guest Services and put them in my luggage to bring on the cruise.
Excellent plan! And congrats!

My husband and I got married last year (We're in New York) - Its so AWESOME to see states coming around here in the US one by one, and to see couples getting into it. I love the Remy proposal idea!!

Yeah, if all goes as planned, we'll be getting married in NY. We currently divide our time between Philly and NYC, and my bf's family are in NYC, Long Island, and Beacon.

We were in Park Slope and Manhattan for years. Decamped to upstate a few years ago. Love Beacon! We used to call it "New Park Slope." I'm sure somewhere else is "New Beacon" at this point.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Or, as a famous drag queen once said, "Happy Gobble Gobble, Gurl!"

A hint for anyone planning to propose on a cruise.


Do it near the end of the cruise. If you do it near the beginning, it makes the rest of the cruise suck when he says no.

well, that's something I would never had planned for. It is a good idea. Sorry your boyfriend did that to you, I would have him leave the boat so he wouldn't ruin the rest of my cruise.

Sadly leaving the ship is not a possibility!
