Mike, I called Nancy Saturday and booked us! Yeaaaaa!
However, I also told Nancy that someone REALLY needs to 'reel me in'!
We have a TA planned, with some friends, for Nov-Dec 2009, getting home on 12-17. We also have the Oasis of the Seas booked for 2 weeks, with our DS and DIL and PGB, for April 2010. That is a whole lot of sailing! Not that I mind that, but I'm kinda scaring myself!
I explained to Nancy that it is a condition I have had my whole life: I just don't want to miss out on anything!
I, too was thinking about dinner the night before. In Galveston, next to the pier where the ship docks, is a restaurant called Fisherman's Wharf. They have some individual rooms for groups. If we had an idea, in advance, how many are interesting is joining us, that may be a good option.
Also, Mike, Don and I are still anticipating heading to California in September. Hopefully we will be able to meet up with you and Carol, while we are in your fair state!
