Posting more helps? In just over five months we'll be boarding our cruise, in just under five months I will be flying to Orlando for my dream vacation. Right now I am trying to keep my impatience from driving me insane!

You have no idea how much stress you just gave me! Fortunately, I still do have almost two months before Mothers Day in the US...

hi everyone

Hello All,
I am sorry I haven't been on in a while. Working extra nights! Hope everyone is doing well. I can tell you for shore excurtions at this point, we plan to do walking tour in Key West. Beach in Cozumel (and couples massage!) swim with sting rays in Grand Cayman, and snorkling, beach, bike rides on Cataway Cay. Those are our plans for now. We would have loved to do the ruins in Cozumel but with a 4 year old, we thought that would be too much for him. Christi, I promise to send you an email this week just to say hi. I've been thinking about you all and look forward to Aug. Have a wonderful day Marianne

Marianne- I thought you had a bunch of days off?

Erik and I were debating whether or not to do the tulum tour. It is just so far to travel each way.

We were thinking about a Mexcio cruise next year or just visiting Mayan riveria. But, after much debate we have decided against it. Matt would like to go out West. We are thinking about Yellowstone or an Alaskan cruise.


Our kids really want to go on a North Europe or Med. cruise. So, we will probably be for going any cruises in 2010(unless we can get a really good rate on DCl while we are on board) I was looking at the TA.

The weather here has been great for March in the 50's.

I am getting confused with this website. I have a hard time finding out how to get back on after I am off.

I want to be part of any get together you are all having. I looked at the "Asterflorist" website, but couldn't figure out how to get my info on it.

I am horrible with computers. I even tried to get a nice countdown clock that i saw. I failed. I will keep trying.

I will keep working on everything but, I definitely do want to be added in to any meet that you have.

Thanks

I have no avatar, sig, or countdown clock.

I started making the FE exchange gift. We are making paperbag scrapbooks.(1 per cabin).

I thought that Marina was going to help me. She started to make one and decided she was going to turn it into a get well card.

I folded and hole punched paper bags for 2 hours last night and my shoulder is sore.

I have a lot of work ahead of me still. It is a good thing that I have 5 months to finish them.

Christi - coming out West is a great idea! If you enjoy the great outdoors, I couldn't stop recommending Yellowstone. It is an incredibly beautiful park I would be happy to spend a month backpacking through. For a real outdoor experience, there is an operator in West Yellowstone, MT that does camping trips with llamas. This way you get to see the places only backpacking will allow you to go, but the llamas carry the load.

Then again, if you would prefer to passively look, check out Alaska cruises. I am hoping in 2011 Disney moves one boat to the west coast and tries an Alaska itinerary for three or four months.

Everybody - if you don't have travel insurance yet and have any preexisting conditions, we are less than five months out. I have seen insurance offered that excludes preexisting conditions for 90 or 120 days after purchase, so buy soon!

Stateroom Availability

I was bored at work, so I just went through the various categories on our cruise to see what was available. Of course, cat 1-3 suites have been sold out for a long time. The number of people who can afford and want a suite is much larger than the number of suites, so no surprise here.

Inside staterooms: Cat 12 and 11 are gty only, but you can choose cat 10 staterooms. This tells me people who want to save money by not paying for a porthole don't think the split bathroom is worth the extra money.

Outside staterooms: Both cat 9 and 8 are gty only. Natural light and a view are important to a lot of people, but I guess not that many can afford or want to pay extra for a private balcony.

Veranda staterooms: Categories 7-4 all have enough staterooms available for customers to choose their room.

So if you know somebody who wants to join your cruise, and they want to choose a stateroom, they have a choice between deluxe inside and a veranda.

I can't wait for the middle of June. For the last two months before our trip I have enough stuff planned to keep very busy, but right now time is crawling by!

I believe cat 1-3 are not available to book online so you won't know if sold out or not, but not certain. Just never seen 1-3.
