heh, as a Miami resident I never pass up a chance to go by the port, and today I was going with some friends to a crepe place in Miami Beach, which takes us across Watson Island (opposiste Dodge Island, the terminal island), with its congregation of azipod ships......the ships for my next 3 cruises (paradise Paradise and probably Spirit alaska 05) were all in port....I realized that I hoped to board exactly 14 days 0 hours 0 minutes from then, when compensating for the time change the night before!
And we have to lose an hour at the end of our cruise, when we dock.
13 days, I'm going crazy. We got our usual table and waiter..........I hope you are all ready for a GREAT week of LUXURY!
Everyone, what cabin categories did you book? We got our usual 6D category (next door to our two time cabin) right off the starboard side of the atrium. Where are you guys gonna be!

We are in room E80, what type of room is this?? Our other two cabins for the rest of the family haven't been assigned yet. Any chance of an upgrade even with a cabin # already?? From the deck plans it looks like we are next to the photo gallery right near the atrium. Any ideas for DR, any good snorkeling there?

I believe this ship is full so an upgrade is problably not gonna happen
there are websites that will give you a view of the cabin
try travelocity, expedia
or cruisestaterooms.com
we'll be in basement on that cruise so no running in the halls

it's actually cruisestateroom.com
I just went there
and checked out R80...nice placement of the room
easy access to the atrium
nice

thought I think one of the other web sites actually has a visual thingy that you can surf around the whole room

I am thinking of packing today, kiddos are out of the house (my godchildren) till Sunday night so now is the perfect chance. Plus if I am missing anything I guess I could run to the store today. Anyone have any must packs?

If you have more than one electronic device dont forget your power strip!
I'm going to slowly pack, starting today. Might as well get a head start. Now all that remains is to get everyone else to pack......

EVERYONE! ONE WEEK LEFT!
The clock ticks
But not fast enough
We Pack
But not fast enough
We wait
But not long enough
The ship waits
But not short enough
We plan
But not for enough
We starve
But long enough
We finish packing
But not soon enough
We gather our things
But not fast enough
We get to the port
The Ship Leaves
We are on it
But not Late

I've already bought two rechargeable batteries for my digital camera, and for my next cruise i'm buying a new one!
How many of you are taking your digital and/or your computer?

10 of us will be on the cruise (5 adults and 5 children). We can't decide what excursion to take in Casa de Campo-La Romana. Have you researched this port yet? There does not seem to be too many options.

IT'S ALMOST VACATION TIME EVERYBODY

and not soon enough
we had about a foot of snow over the weekend and
it was 20 below this morning
Let's see if it's 80 in miami
that's a 100 degree swing
Our vacation officially starts friday at 4
we fly out saturday and the airport is 3 hours
away so we are leaving friday night and staying
near the airport
I have everything just about ready to be packed but
I probably won't stuff the suitcases til friday morning
though I am sure it will be a wrinkled mess by sunday
but who cares
I'M ON VACATION!!!!
