Depends on the cruise line and if you purchased your air through the cruise line. Can usually be anywhere between 4-5 weeks prior to one week prior to the cruise.

Don't forget to do a Doc dance when you receive them. I prefer doing mine to the Lido Shuffle by Boz Skaggs. :-)

Don't do the doc dance at work Jansan, people might think you're weird! (Not us though, you're just one of us!!)

donna

P.S. we got our docs just 4 days before our last cruise...talk about sweating it!

Jansan,
First let me welcome you to the CM boards. I hope you and yours made it through the storms unscathed.

It is a tradition that when a first time cruise (your sister and brother in law) receive their documents, they must let their whole neighborhood know of their good fortune by running down the middle of the street, her dressed in a String Bikini and him in a Speedo thong, docs in hand raised high yelling “We’ll be cruising and you’ll be stuck here at home na na na na naaaa”. Also you must take a picture of this and post it here.

I hope your doc’s arrive soon and we can’t wait to share your excitement.

Jason you didn't tell me about this tradition but I will pass it along to my honey, Ed and get busy trying to find him a thong. Since we are the newbies in our neighborhood and also from the south, we already feel a little different. Maybe that will break the ice and we will become real "yanks" for the duration of this move.

Too funny Jason, Denise

Jansan, don't believe a word of what Jason says. He's the only one that runs down the street in a speedo. The last time he did it his neighbors rioted. {{lol}}

Denise, I was away for a while and must have missed the posting that this was your first time. I apologize for the oversight.
This tradition goes way back to Kuki’s first cruise. A gentleman that was painting stripes in the road, the day that Kuki did his neighborhood run, was effected so badly that he ran off course and ended up painting what looked like chevrons on the road. Every time this poor road line painter is haunted with this vision of Kuki, he inadvertently paints chevrons on the road.
If you’ve ever been to Canada you know what I’m talking about. . Although, I could be dating myself also. It was many years ago that I witnessed these incisive chevrons everywhere on the roads in Canada.

Mark is just upset because he used a good pair of socks for his speedo and he lost them when he did his run…<BG>

That is too hilarious. It's a good thing Kuki is gone while you tell us his little secret now isn't it. If any of you have photos of your "doc run" I would love to see them. Hopefully the weather will warm up before we do our trot around the cul de sac when our documents arrive. Jason, can we go after dark? ))) <VBG> Denise

Denise,
I belive it doesn't qualify as a doc dance unless its in broad daylight. {{snicker}}

Denise,
I don't recall his name...maybe Mark remembers this one...I just don't recall..I think this picture was taken just before he made it a thong and took off.
Cick on attachment above to see picture.

Yikes Jason, why'd you have to go and make me lose my appetite like that?

Jansan.. I’m kidding. I hope I didn’t scare you away. I haven’t seen you post today.

Michelle, sorry, I should have posted the picture after lunch.
