Default They came. *jumps up and down*

My travel documents arrived... *dances around* Only 17 days to go.

Helloooooooo Carnival Destiny and the Southern Caribbean.

Anyone been on this cruise before? Recommendations? This is my first cruise so you can imagine my excitement.

Four times and counting. I know I'll scour them over and over again to make sure I don't miss anything. HAHAHA I also filled out my checkin so I don't have to worry about that.

Dina.. Doc dancing is the best feeling! Enjoy!

I've sailed the Destiny, but not out of San Juan. We had some great times on that ship.

One tip.. use Deck 5 for all indoor movements bow to stern, and then go up and down a deck from there. It's the only interior public room deck that runs the length of the ship.

Congratulations Dian on the arrival of your docs. Isn't it fun to do the doc dance. You don't even have to worry about the steps.

I was on the Destiny over Christmas 2003. Love the itinerary and the ship! Outside the atruim are lounge chairs all around - great for reading and a nap when needed! Love the southern islands! Weather was beautiful and probably my favorite cruise! Have a great time!

Congratulations! For the moment, I'll dance for you. You can dance for me in a few weeks, since my countdown is 6W 2D.

[My Christmas Eve doc dance was a bit premature.
What I thought were docs were merely brochure. ]

hahaha I'll consider it part of my "exercise" program.

Kuki - Thank you very much for the tip. I will remember that.

Phyllbo - I kind of figured it was more of a freestyle thing. hehehe

Becky - It's always great to hear reviews. Everything I've learned about the Destiny and the destinations are exactly what I want. I'm one of those travelers who jumps into party mode as soon as I leave on vacation.

VTJen - I've been saying that every day. great minds!

mehawk - Thanks.

Seahunks - I promise to doc cance right with you as your time gets closer. Heck... why wait?? hahaha

The very first time, the docs seem to be made of solid gold, huh?

Congrats Dina!

We received our docs also - RCCL Mariner 2/26. Oh what a feeling!!!!
I have been doing my dance to Bon Jovi's new cd - it's great! Just because I'm over 50 doesn't mean I can't dance, or at least try........
