DW and I got to gold after our Alaskan last year. I can't believe it's been over a year. I guess we are making up for it by taking the 14 night

The BF's first cruise as gold will be Panama so I will have to listen to him gloat for about two and a half months. (I will hit gold in January.)

Dd was a bit annoyed that I received a gold lanyard last week and she got a silver one. I then told her that come Dec, she and I will both have a gold one and her brothers will have silver. She liked that! Oh the love of sibling rivalry.

For everyone who was interested in the private whale watching tour, they says their season only begins on December 16. To me, that seems stupid when it's a private tour but each to their own. I'm kind of bummed out. Haven't told the BF yet, he will be so disappointed.

Couldn't they just call it a private boat excursion? The "sanctifying agency" whatever that is, should be fine with that - and if you *happened* to see whales - well Whales go where they want when they want!

My ressie shows up twice too - and I definitely didn't pay twice.

dthogue, come out and sit with me in the Cove in the mornings! It's much better than to sit in the cabin and need to be quiet! I can't understand this ability to 'sleep in' past 7 am

Busy day today - getting ready to hit the road tomorrow.

Happy Day, everyone!

I asked them that, and nope.

Me either - I don't have the ability to sleep past 5-5:30. I'm an early bird!! Only problem is that I'm ready for bed at 9:30pm

I would love to join you! I know you are an early exerciser too - do you go to the gym on the ship? I'm planning on walking in the morning if my sore feet cooperate.

You sound like my Mom. I have never had patience. My Mom would call it the P word and when I was younger (ok and now) she would go, Emily, now what's the P word...

I just get so excited!

I am having issues trying to book a SCUBA tour. It appears the shop I contacted usually does their tours through the cruise line and won't take out any cruise ship passengers without them going through the cruise ship. I even explained that our ship wasn't offering it as an excursion. I also haven't informed DH yet because he will be disappointed so I want to keep looking into it before I crush his hopes and dreams.

Glad to hear there are early birds on the ship! I am up at 5:30 and already at work by 7. This habit doesn't stop on weekends or vacations. I am hoping to maybe take afternoon naps so that I can enjoy the nightlife a little bit.

DH and I are normally running at 7 so we skipped the 7am gym class (normally a sunrise strech) but try to hit up an 8am spin class after running when they have them. We also will hit up the gym after running to lift.

My slow *** likes to talk to someone while running so if anyone is interested in a workout buddy yet me know. DH makes for a horrible workout buddy since his pace is half of mine and while my sister is in much better shape than me, she prefers to spin (she is a spin instructor) and will only run if her life depended on it.

Looking forward to seeing the early risers around the ship bright and early!

Despite your obvious mental deficit (says, she, the night owl), I'm sure we can still be friends (although you're all clearly crazy )!

We were thinking of you, the "fit" people (said with envy ) this past weekend, when we were visiting DH's mother in Stroudsburg PA and had to wind through traffic that was re-routed for an Ironman triathlon. We watched the cyclists pass her home all morning...very impressive. Now if I can just lose an entire person off my body, I'm in!

My Dad told me when I was a teenager (in regards to my 11PM weekend cerfew) that nothing good happens after 11PM. I listened to well!

People who do ironman's aren't just fit, they are insane! My fitness level is no where near theirs! I barely made it through a marathon, I can't imagine having to do a swim and bike ride with it. I might try a sprint tri, seems so much more managable and sane.

My friend did the race in Stroudsburg. It was her 4th or 5th Ironman this year! Crazy

That is a bummer. Thanks for checking!

We just booked our flights! Taking a chance on flying in the day of. We have 5 hours for possible delays so hopefully nothing goes wrong. Also got a pretty good flight coming home considering we have to go across two countries! It will feel like 3am when we get home but at least we won't have to get out of bed for awhile afterwards since it is only Christmas

Has anyone seen a DCL post about "earliest flight time recommended?" I believe for Port Canaveral it's usually listed as noon. But with Miami being new and all.....
