Yes, they are. One is almost as big as me now. Saw your post about Sovereign. When are you going? She is leaving the fleet later this year.

We are leaving on May 12th for the 4 night cruise. I booked a grand suite since the cruise is for my daughter's graduation from the Universityof Tampa. It is also her first cruise and our first time on Royal Caribbean.

Any advice, suggestions you have would be helpful. I have reserved the Blackbeard's Cay Stingray Snorkel & Beach Break excursion.

Do you plan on sailing the Sovereign again before she leaves the fleet?

That is good excursion. DO the waverunners on Coco Cay awesome. I don't think I will have another chance on Sovereign. Trying Carnival again in October from Tampa.

Thanks for the advice on the waverunners.

Any other suggestions of things we shouldn't miss either on the ship or off.

Dave, Frosty is glad to have had his picture taken with you at the bar. If I didn't have this slow dial-up, I'd post it here.

Take care.

Michelle

All finished with the photo galleries. The last one is the sad last day at sea, pool games, packing, parade, ect...

Overall a great cruise, a lot of great people and great weather. Have to do it again soon! 8)

Dave, I always get sad on the last day of my cruise because of having such a good time and knowing it is coming to an end. I usually stay up late on the last night and walk around taking pictures of places and things to keep the good memories alive so I can look back after arriving home. I also hate to pack and leave it to the very last minute. Bob

I wish. My Bride has pretty much insisted on a land vacation. Hawaii most likely.

She doesn't have the cruise bug like I do.

Awesome pictures, as usual, Dave.

My countdown clock is getting closer to single digits. Really looking forward to sailing on RCCL and the Sovereign.

I suggested that. She wants to spend time in one place. She likes the ships, but hates that she doesn't have all the time she wants in the places she likes.

We are also planning a land vacation to Cozumel/Cancun. For that very reason.
