We are still booked on the Baltic cruise but I'm 99.99% certain we will cancel as we've started to think seriously about other equally exciting but rather cheaper options for June 2010...
Everyone keeps leaving us.

Sunday, our first sea day I'm going to try to schedule the Champagne Girls.

So that will be.....first full day at sea, Champagne Girls at 2pm.

Second full day at sea, High Tea with Stacy, Vicki, Kathe and me.

Hope it works out. Now that I'm paid I want to book everything. I have 6 more weeks to wait. Oh brother.
Sounds good-thanks Deb. I hope we can talk about fibromalgia on board, It has been a major pain in every imaginable definition of the word "pain". Vicki

Absolutely....let's get together at the cove cafe over some good coffee and compare notes. It is definitely a pain but not only in the butt....it's painful everywhere. My rheumatologist tried a pain patch which worked great....until I developed a rash and couldn't use it. He told me that I was probably allergic to the adhesive. But while I used it for a day or so I remember saying to myself....I forgot what it felt like to be normal again. I'm so conditioned to feeling pain daily that I don't even notice it much. I realized how bad I was when I wore that patch. Of course, some days I have flare ups and then I feel it big time. I find that rest helps. I have to schedule days off in between activities. If I go on a vacation, I have to take steroids to sustain activities for the entire vacation. But I can't remain on them so I only do them once or maybe twice a year temporarily. It's definitely a lifestyle change where I have to work within my limitations. We'll talk in more detail onboard. I'm looking forward to it.

OK I'm thinking about ordering my fish extender gifts today. I get 20% off if I order within 3 days. I counted FE participants listed on page one....adding all the additional family members in multiple cabins....figuring high end.....I came up with approximately 25. I thought I might order 50 just to be safe and cover new people who will be joining us between now and Sept.

What do you all think? Is this a good number to go with?

Wow, seriously? My kids would kill me if I canceled our Med cruise, but I'd love to go to Malaysia.

Thanks for the info on the insurance as well. I'll put dh to work on it because I'm feeling sick. Sick enough that I don't even feel like planning for the trip.

That really struck a chord with me, Deb! I know it's not the same at all but I have very severe psoriasis and dealing with it completely rules my life to the extent that I have definitely forgotten how it feels to be, at best, discomfort-free. Drugs help but the severe side effects have an impact all of their own so I'm back to finding other ways of coping... I feel for you and Vicki, I really do...

Seriously, Julie! I was idly browsing the Interval International getaway section of their website (we are Gold members through a timeshare we have in Spain) and discovered a gorgeous resort which seemed not too expensive. So I priced the trip up for June 2009 and was astonished at the amazing vacation DH and I could have for half the cost of the DCL Baltic cruise - including flights, sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur, visiting an orang utan orphanage in Borneo, an elephant sanctuary and spending all-important time by beach...
