Hi Everyone....Just think 2 weeks from today we'll all be enjoying the warm sun at COCOCAY!! Cruzbug.... Congradulations on that new grandson, bring pictures for us to see. Jfamily...you should be able to change, but I've always liked late seating better that way you don't haved to rush back from shore to get ready for dinner. We have early seating this time because of mother-in-law, the sacrifices we haved to make (). I haven't started putting things in suitcases yet but boy do I have things piled all over my packing room. Hills...will keep our fingers crossed you get your doc's this week! Hope everyone has a Great week.
Had a email from the travel agent, still no docs but she said RCCL is going to email them to her?? Anyone every got their documents by email? Sounds a little strange but in this day and age fo electronic air tickets, I guess you just have to trust the system!
Even my 6 year old is starting to count off the days! She is getting pretty excited!
Finally got the email from the travel agent today with the e-documents. Didn't want to print it at work so forwarded the email to home and now the link isn't working. Good news is I didn't delete it at work!
Only got e-docs for myself and daugher. Called the travel agent and she told me my mom and aunt's e-docs didn't work so they have faxed them to her. The travel agent is suppose to drop them off to me at work on Thursday!
Good news, my brother and family got their e-doc's OK. Haven't checked with my aunt who just joined the trip but hopefully her e-documents will arrive safely.I can't believe that the cruise line couldn't manage to get original documents when we registered for the cruise back in September!
Oh well, as long as we get on the boat! It is minus 44 with the wind chill today so some sunny warm weather is looking better and better!
Good morning all. Hills I am glad you got your documents. That would make one a little crazy not having them yet. Well the single didgets are going to be upon us. YES!!!!! We all are ready for the cruise with all the cold weather. It has been -15 here and today it is snowing again. Hopefully not the 20 inches we got before Christmas. I am just ready for the WARM. Hope everyone has a great day. See you soon!
Hello everyone. Hills I agree with Carol B , I would be going crazy. I would be on the phone every day and maybe twice if needed to insure my doc were on the way. We got our docs about 2 weeks ago. Also, all ya'll up North , please keep the cold weather up there. All these minus degree wind chill factors days are not for a true southerner as myself. However, it would be nice to have a little snow every now and then. Still looking for any comments on the St. John Beach Tour offered by RCCL. Ready to go Cruising.
Hi everybody...it is snowing today, and quite cold. Hope it is not stormy for our drive to Montreal. Can't wait for that warm sun on my body.
Thanks for the congrats. He weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces and his name is Adam Charles; a nice little brother for his 3 year old sister.
I've been checking over my packing list, revising it a bit. I think everything is ready to put in suitcases on the day before we leave.
I third that! In Ottawa it was -30 degrees cesius and with the wind chill it was -40 degrees celsius so I am more than ready for some warmth and sunshine. I am also steaming mad about the e-docs situation.
The travel agent's husband dropped off the fax of the documents today for my mom and aunt but my aunt in Victoria still has nothing. I know she is registered on the boat as she appeared on the Cruise Critic invite under my brother's reservations number.
I know there are still 5 business days to go but I am getting really nervous. When I got my edoc's there really wasn't much too them but a lot of print outs about policies etc. What happens if my aunt just shows up at the pier??? I am on the travel agent's case and will call Royal Carribean Customer Service tommorrow but does anyone know if you can arrive with no documents and get on the boat. To make things worse my travel agent (so to me my ex-travel agent) is going away next week.
Hello everyone, we are almost there!!!!!!! Hills I know you can get your doc there when it is to late for them to mail them to you. I have done that before once when I took a last minute cruise. I would still call Royal Carribean though. I know everything will work out. I would call Royal Carribean myself rather than the travel agent. I would want to hear it from them. Is everyone packed? I have things laid out in the computer room but won't be packed until Friday. Just think warm weather!!!!! I thought our -18 was cold, but -40 WOW. Looking forward to seeing all of you. Let's get this last week over with then let it go SLOW. Bye for now
Hi everyone, as Carol B. stated we are almost there and my wife and I have really gotten the fever. We were planning on getting up Saturday and driving all the way to Miami. Now we have decided to leave Friday after work and drive down to Ocala Fl. and then get up Saturday and travel on to Miami. This way we will have a litle time in Miami to look around and maybe go to south beach. Does anyone have any recommendations on places to eat in Miami? We are staying at the Holiday Inn at the Airport so we prefer something close by.
Hopefully, no one will have problems with there flights next weekend due to snow.
Ready to go cruising.
Hi Everybody.... can you believe we've just about made it, 4 days an a early wake-up and we're headed to Miami!!!! Hills....I hope you've been able to get everything straighten out, I think you'll be fine getting on the ship. But I'm with you, get a different TA. Jfamily....we always go over to Bayside Market area and eat at Bubba Gumps, but I know there are alot of other places there to eat. Can't wait to meet everyone. Well better get busy, Take Care.
Hello everyone. Well I am sick, but the Dr. said she will have me better by Sat. I have asthmatic broncitis. She gave me a breathing treatment yesterday in her office, boy that made a big difference. I slept some last night. She gave me some medicine that is suppose to make me much better by Sat. Ron is just hoping he does not get it. Bubba Gumps mmmmmm. I ate at one of those in South Carolina. I don't like sea food, but they had great chicken. Sounds like dinner to me. Where abouts is it? Is the Bayside Market lots of neat stores? Hills glad you can relax some now. Looking forward to seening everyone. How are we going to know each other? Didn't someone say they were going to have a certain shirt on or something? Take care and happy packing.
Carol...hope your feeling better, Bubba Gumps is right when you enter Bayside you can't miss it. I think anything you might want can be bought at Bayside, they usually have live music down close to water, gets you in the mood for vacation. I was wondering how we would know each other, I guess we just look for Hills hockey shirt. Hope everyone's having a great day!
Hello everyone. Didn't go to work today, was up all night coughing. The Dr. just called another perscription in and wants me to go get a chest x-ray. There had better be nothing else wrong and I need to start feeling better. Hopefully I will feel better soon. I think the WARM weather will feel the best.
Bayside it is for us on Sat. night. I think our flight gets in at 3pm so we will probally spend the evening there. Sounds like fun. Talk to you all later.
Hoping everyone has a safe journey and I will be the crazy Canuck standing by the rock wall with the Senators shirt. Might have to hang my daughters smaller senators shirt over the balcony or deck chair as I don't know if I can fit mine in my luggage! I will be wearing a pair of light lime/mint green pants with a white/red and light green jacket so look for that if you can't find the hockey sweater!!! See you all at the rock climbing wall sometime around 2:30 - 3:00 and if not we can catch you at the cruise critic party the next day.
Everyone in our group now has documents, so I feel a little more relaxed! Only one more day of work. See you all soon!
Carol, I hope you are feeling better soon. My son is under the weather with whooping cough and we have him on the antibiotics so I hope he feels better soon. He is dying to go on his first learn to ski program after school tommorrow but he is still coughing tonight so I am reluctant to let him go!
My husband and he are not coming on this trip so they are going to stay home and drink beer (dad) and eat pizza (son!).
It has been a pleasure chatting with you all and hopefully we can have some face to face conversations onthe ship!
Hello everyone. Well the time is here for us. We have finish packing and will load the car tomorrow around noon. Will be heading to Florida about 2 PM. Plan on stopping about half way to Miami. I'm a University of Georgia Bulldog fan so I will be wearing a red shirt with Georgia Bulldog Logo and a red hat with the letter G on the front . Looking forward to meeting everyone and putting a face with the names. It has been great chatting with ya'll and hopefully we can continue the conversations on the ship. I probably won't be back on before we leave Friday , so hope everyone has a safe trip down to Miami.
Hi Everyone...Hope you guys check this board, just wanted to say how nice it was to meet everyone. Would of liked to have spent more time talking to everyone but the days just seem to fly by, plus I spent way to much time in casino (). I did finaly win $1000.00 the last night, paid off our bill and tucking the rest away for future cruise. Hope everyone had a good trip home, we came home to rain Sunday & snow today (yuk)! My e-mail address is RJOHNSON40@kc.rr.com, let me know how everyone is doing. Hope to talk to you soon.
