Default We Are BOOKED!!!!

We are booked for the Carnival Conquest in Dec...Sorry it's not the Picnic Cruise but could'nt pass this one up..Sail out of New Orleans and the special is that it is with Rusty Wallace of NASCAR...lot of perks..WAAAAAAAHOOOOOoooooooo

I am so excited that I cant think or type..I never thought I would ever get to say this again...That I booked another cruise..the deal was so good My wife didnt even hesitate.
Short drive to the port and back home..it's a 7 day..the only thing is, its an inside cabin but I dont care..IT"S A CRUISE...and on this one..I wont spend much time in the cabin anyway..can you feel the excitement..I know it is trivial with all the sick family on this board but I just had to get this out..thanks for reading my ranting..
I am going to hide now because I know that TRIP and Mary Lou are going to hit me with those danty gold change purses....ok..ok..I am going to go to Jason's room..he seems to always get out of trouble easy....gone

Congratulations!!!! I,too, was extremely excited(still am) when I booked my cruise! We thought about going on the Conquest out of New Orleans(would love to visit there one day), but thought the new Valor ship looked good & the itinerary for my family looked better. Have fun with your NASCAR friends!!! (It would be nice to drive to the Port;but for us that would mean a Alaska cruise-sorry, coming from B.C.-Alaska does not appeal to me like the Caribbean warmth!!!!!!!!!!!)

Wooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can feel your excitement through the screen. Wish I had one booked but I'm being frugal and waiting for the prices to drop on the Holiday in October, which should be around mid July.

Regards,
Thomas

Nice going, Big! I'm sure you'll enjoy your week on the Conquest, with or without Rusty. But the racing environment should add a little spice to your cruise, especially if you're a big NASCAR fan. Enjoy!

Jack

Wasn't your first cruise less than 6 weeks ago? Weren't you warned? Congratulations.
on proving us right!

The next thing you need to do is to check Conquest's schedule between now and your cruise. On her sail dates, go to www.portno.com, select webcams. You'll have a tough time keeping yourself away from the site.


I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!

Way to go Big Dude! It seems that you are officially hooked. But it's going to be a long 190 days. Just put some caribbean music on the CD, mix up one of those frozen thingees, close your eyes, and say: there's no place like paradise!

Way to go BigJohn, I'm so happy for you! It's nice to hear some good news for a change, and I know how very excited you are because I felt the same way just a few weeks ago when James booked the Paradise for June! too bad we won't be sailing on the same ship, but maybe one day on a CM cruise!

Hi all,especially bigjohn461, I do NOT have this lingo figured out neither!!! I thought you really were talking about a bunch of NASCAR fans going on a cruise(you know, the race car people!!!).How embarassing!! I guess I don't get out much neither here in Canada! Hope everyone in the USA enjoys their long weekend. We had our long weekend last weekend -the Queen's birthday! Bye for now. Take care everyone. From:Brenda in Canada

Congratulations John on the cruise booking.

OK, the truth is, I really said RATS! when I saw what you had done. I was so hoping you would be on the Jewel with the chat rats in February.

Seeing your enthusiasm for the cruise you are going on though, it's hard not to be happy for you. I know you will have a great time and maybe in the future you'll get on a CM cruise.

Congrats on the booking, Big John! I'm sure you will enjoy comparing a seven-day on the Conquest to a short cruise on the Fantasy!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

YOU ARE WHAT???? How come the name, Benedict Arnold, comes to mind? We have been strewn aside for Rusty Wallace? You tobacco chawin, greasy, snaggletooth ingrate. We try and interject a bit of class and dignity<BG>, by welcoming you to cruise with us. Now if you had picked, Mikey Waltrip, I could understand…You go to your room and don’t come out until you apologize.
By the way its not my room, the original room has to be accredited to Thomas…Thomas, now that’s a man of dignity and poise, a real statesman, unlike yourself…He would have either lied or not told us at all of his alternate plans.lol
All kidding aside, I’m happy for you and DW. Hope you have a great time Benedict…lol
