Default Who's Cruising Soon?

Hi everyone...
I'm leaving Thursday for the Fantasy, and bursting with anticipation! It'll be hard to get any work done today and tomorrow.
So who else is off this week? Kuki is in Europe; Donna is in Alaska; Thomas and Mrs. Thomas are on the SOS; Robocop is on his way to the Legend...
Let's hear from everyone who's cruising soon! How excited are you?
Oh, and let's all cross our fingers that the hurricanes and tropical storms out there will decide to head into uncharted waters and dissipate!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Michelle I can feel your energy & excitement coming thru the web! I am so jealous!! I don't leave for another 49 days. I probably will be just like you right before leave.

Have a wonderful time!

I am! I am!!

I just can't wait!! We fly out on Fri. the 13th for Orlando. We'll stay there over night at the Radisson and leave on the 14th on the Pride.
I keep looking over and over the brochures and our website of the Pride for our date. It's all I think about! I'm praying though we get our docs! They got lost in route to us. So they had to reprint them. Should be here in the next few days.

There's one question though I was thinking of posting. You know how it was when you were a kid at Christmas time and you've opened all your presents? It was a let down when it was all over. I'm afraid I'll be bummed when I get home. All the anticipation and planning that went into it and it's over. What do you all do afterwards to keep from getting so bummed??? Plan another one??

Well Michelle, have a wonderful time! I can tell you're just as excited as we are. We're celebrating our 20th anniversary. That's on Sep. 11th! yuck..but the cruise will help make up for it. Not going to let that get me down.

We're don't have anything booked until Novemeber 2003! But at least it's booked! I'm sure I'll have to find something to fill in between now and then, although we do have tentative plans for a land vacation in the spring and Costa Rica next summer. But it takes a lot of land vacations to add up to one cruise!! !

11 More Days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New England/Canada on the Golden Princess. We booked this in July 2001, so it's been a LOOOOOOOOG countdown. I finally started to make lists and get the forgetables together (In the BIG totebag) this past weekend. This weekend will be spent getting everything else together! I just about squeal when the luggage comes out of the attic......it's right up there with the Doc Dance in excitement!! I know I'm a bit crazed right now!!

Take care, All!
Jaime

Not cruising till next spring. Hey BIGSKY....to avid the let down from coming back from any vacaction I find it helps to take lots and lots of video. Then on those cold depresing days before your next cruise you can re-live the ones you took before. Have fun on your next cruise... Bob
PS: ML...you go girl. Two booked at one time.

Bon Voyage Michelle. Have a wonderful time on your cruise. Don't worry about the storms, the Captain will steer clear of them.

Have a good cruise, Michelle, and like Phyllbo said, don't worry too much about the weather. Just enjoy and have fun!

Hey Bob!

Good idea! I think I need to get another battery for my camera since I can't recharge til we get back on board. And many pictures will be taken as well!
We are going next yr. to do the WDW/cruise combo with the kids. So I do have something to look forward to. But will pop in those videos or get out those albums. Nothing compares to a wonderful cruise!

Laura
8 more days til we fly out!

Don't cruise for another 125 days . Dawn Princess 1/03. Big cruise, grad. present from hubby. Have tentative plans for a girls weekend cruise with mom and friends (hers and mine) next October. Hubby and l have a land vacation to WDW in April. Then after that who knows.

As for getting bummed after a cruise, after our 2000 cruise, I was really bummed, but my very sweet husband (do I sound like a newlywed here? we have been married 10 years!!!) let me ramble about the cruise the entire 8hour trip home and then understood the rush for getting the pics developled. I totally agree with boomer on the video. It really helps. okay, I am rambling here..................

Hi BigSky: Regarding not being able to recharge your battery. Why not? Take the video charger with you and a small "light stip". You can recharge and still get your curling iron ready or use a hair dryer. Have lots and lots of fun. Bob

Hi there , 11 of us girls are going on our first cruise to Alaska on Sept 21, on the Ocean Princess. I also can hardly contain myself , we booked the cruise in April of this year and got a really good rate. It has been a long countdown for us though. It is so nice to read about where everyone else is going also. I am so excited, I wonder what we will be like the day we finally get to go . Have a great trip everyone.

Hey Bob..

I meant that I couldn't recharge my battery until I got back on the ship. Don't think I could recharge it while on a ruins excursion. ha ha.. But I will have to recharge when we get back on.
I can't wait to go!! It's been way too long since we went on our last cruise. Won't go that long again!!

7 more days til we fly out!!

Hi,
We celebrated our 12th anniversary Sept 8 and our gift to each other is a cruise on the Destiny October 6, 2002. Cruising is the best isn't it? The cruise is also a birthday present for me (Sept 30) but don't tell anyone or they might get jealous.

As for filling the time after a cruise, the answer is, yes! plan another cruise. My wife and I took a cruise last year and this year and have to take a little time before our next one, but we are already in the planning stages for a cruise to Alaska for our 15th anniversary.

Hanging around these boards is also a great way to pass the days and months.

take care and have a great weekend!!
