Woohoo, you're cruising.

What a great day. I love the package, what great value and it makes the room look all festive.

I've never fancied going on a cruise, but hubby has said a few times it's something he'd like to try, it wasn't until I started reading this board about the Disney Wonder that it started to appeal to me. I think I might be sold now He will be pleased.

Thanks for posting. Can't wait to read the rest.

Ohhhhhh Claire,what a fantastic day-i was so excited reading it .I must admit though as much as it looks wonderful,it's something i would never do because of my fear of water .
Your pictures are amazing and i love all the little extra's you got for the room.Such a shame about the suprise having to come out-after keeping it to yourself for so long.Can't wait for the next instalment.x.

I think Dale Chihuly uses Murano glass techniques which I love - we have the most stunning Murano light fitting to install (post building work, naturally)...
We haven't stayed at the Bellagio but spent quite a while exploring it. It is a fabulous resort, if, actually when we get back to Vegas I think it will be our first choice of hotel.

Can't wait to see your Murano light, sounds fab.

They were very nice David, I loved the boxes too as they have little Mickey heads all over them.

You should definately give it a go. We opted for the 4 night so we could see if we liked it....you can probably already guess we loved it without me even saying that we have two more booked for next year.

Thanks hun, I hope to have another one up tomorrow or Monday. Just need to finish sorting out the pics for it.

What are you afraid of? Getting sea sick or just water in general?

WOW WOW WOW .... what an amazing day! There is absolutely nothing like that amazing feeling when you board one of the DCL ships. I love your stateroom gifts ... and your magnets are amazing. (don't suppose you have a template of the Mickey heads with the Mickey / Minnie pirates on ... would love to surprise DH with those) Reading about your embarkation day and looking at those wonderful photos brings it all back ... and is making me even more excited for September

I hope September comes around quickly for you.

I got the pirate Mickey heads from someone on here, they add the names for anyone that asks and then you just need to print them on to magnet paper and cut them out. I'll try to find the link for you, it's a great thread and they do lots of different designs.

ETA: Here you go, this is the 3rd thread. Lots to choose from. http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2299290&page=175

Water(and drowning) in general,i will go in a swimming pool+feel safe-ish because it is closed in+if i was to get into trouble they would find me,i don't go underwater+don't like water splashed in my face.I don't do water parks either.
The Sea is my main fear ,i will paddle along the egde for the sake of my girls-but even being on a beach and looking out at the sea freaks me out and scares me+if i was to get into trouble/drown they would'nt find me as it's such a huge space .When i was 12 i fell in the deep end of the schools swimming pool+as i was only just getting used to being in the deep end anyway,i was covinced i was going to drown+it seemed like an age before i managed to get to the surface .Before then i would go in the sea up to my neck.(as much as i love the Jaws ride i am freaking out inside).x.
