Default Now What?

So today I booked my very first cruise (SC's Halloween cruise) and I'm excited and anxious and all of the above. So my question is, what the heck do I do now? The wait is going to be agony. Any suggestions?

Hey Von,
I know the waiting is the difficult part, but use these boards to ask all your questions and or concerns, plan shore excursions, etc.

You may also want to visit us in our nightly chat, we always welcome new chatters.

Hopefully the time will go quickly.

Start by figuring out your Halloween costume?

Here is what you do. You now start gathering all your needed information. As you cruise CM website you will find a wealth of info about things you didn't think about. Then you will be hooked on CM and be a regular poster.

Very true rescuedad! The wonderful thing is I've been able to gather so much information that I've only had to post once! I'm a first timer too so don't have much advice to give - lol!
