Default My Docs are in, but is he going?

Yep, the docs for our cruise on the Fantasy in January have arrived but is my travelling companion, my restaurant manager, going to have his passport in time? Hmmmm.... who knows, only thing I know for sure is my "phatt butt" will be eating cheeseburgers in paradise on Jan. 9th. And the "forever the proscratinator" may be looking for a mailman.

Regards,
Thomas

Congratulations on the docs Thomas. Hope you're doing the doc dance! Has your friend even applied for his passport yet? I sure hope so, and that he gets it in plenty of time for the cruise. If not, I bet there are a lot of folks around here that would be willing to take his place. :-)

Perhaps he should be making sure that he has his birth certificate handy, just in case the pp doesn't arrive. But you've still got 3 weeks, and the pp (if applied for) should show up by then. Enjoy the cruise and the Bahamas, Thomas. You should be well known there by now!

Before getting concerned about his passport, make sure he even needs it for the cruise you're going on. Most Carnival cruises wouldn't need it.

He could probably get by with a birth certificate with a raised seal and driver's license instead.

Double check with the cruise line to make sure exactly what you need but he can probably go without the passport.

He may be able to go without the passport, but he would have had to send his birth certificate in with the application for the passport. Looks like he should consider getting a certified copy of the birth certificate.

I'll start a list of potential cabin mates:

Sign up below and have your bags packed by Jan. 8th.

Sounds good Thomas! Unfortunately, I can't join the list of potential cabin mates due to a lack of vacation time. I hope your friend gets his act together!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Dear sir,

Please consider my application for cruisemates status.

I am a recent graduate (well, drop out) from Butlering school, but have a unique talent which I think you'd find very useful on this journey.

With keen moose senses I can locate and retrieve a Michelob quicker than any species known to man. I also have an incredibly fine tuned sense of direction, so when told to get lost, I know where to go.

Hey Sue I didn't hear Thomas make his pick YET!!

*I* think you should pick someone who actually sailed with you before on the Fantasy. Who will understand your needs and wishes aboard that particular ship. Wiat! That's me!!!

Pick me, pick me, pick me.....
