Default Long time off

We're booked for a December 2006 girls only cruise.

Boy is that a long time off.

It's a long time off, but just that much more time to look forward to it. Like Trip said, anticipation is half the fun. Congratulations on the booking.

The anticipation is part of the fun - it gives you more bang for your buck.

BossyGossy,

I'm thinking you are talking about "our" Dorothy! Is DTP going with you? If I'm wrong, sorry. You'll have a great time either way!

Definately set up your countdown clock. Time goes so fast! You'll have a great time on these boards learning about your cruise!

Have a wonderful cruise!

Count me in .......................... I'm the third sis & also can't wait to go. DTP will not be going this trip although he is not happy about that This will be my first trip on Carnival & after hearing Dorothy rave about it I'm anxiously looking forward to the comparison of HAL / Disney / Carnival.................. all great ships! I'd love to get my countdown clock going but even Dorothy has checked it out & can't get it to work for me. Anybody out there know why it won't work? Thanks!

Bossy, Cathy, and Dorothy,

How wonderful to take an all girls cruise! I'm sure you will all have a wonderful time.

I'm sure DTP is unhappy about being left out of this one. But really, would he have a good time with all the girls???? (OK, remembering his past posts, he probably would, but too bad!)

As an only child, I'm so jealous! I have a wonderful SIL, but she's not interested in cruising at all, no matter what I say. Don't know what's wrong with her

Cathy,

There's only so much "space" that your signature will hold. (I think it's 255 characters). I don't know how many characters your picture takes up. You can try putting your past cruises on two lines with commas between them and then adding the clock. I think that's worked for some people.

Yes, Fern DTP is waaay unhappy!

My 3 favorite sisters and my 3 favorite nieces - it doesn't get any better than that for a cruise....

Maybe you can talk your sil into cruising one day Fern. If not, we might just to have include you in one of our family cruises!
