Default So Excited....my docs arrived yesterday

It's almost time only 37 more nights of sleep. My docs arrived yesterday for our cruise aboard the FOS on September 6th. I am so excitrd that I can barely contain myself. It will be our 25th wedding anniversary cruise and I am just holding my breath in anticipation. Thanks to all that help with my many questions, I really appreciated all the help.

After doing many cruises before, I still get excited just before a cruise. I have 3 planned before the end of 2009 so I'm going to be overstimulated. That's a good thing, right?

I hope so. I'm on the 9/13 sailing of Freedom also and my hands are on fire waiting for my documents. I'm so excited, I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt. (Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias)

You'll probably, no, you WILL get them today I am looking forward to meeting you guys. Maybe we can share a glass of wine at vintages or something to get the cruise started on a very positive note.

Keep watching the mail today 8)


See you on 9/13

I know the feeling. I always book through a travel agent (who is also my friend) and as soon as I give her the deposit I e-mail her and ask her "Cruise documents here yet?" She says "Sheila, I just got the reservation number" I'm just so excited whenever I book. (I know that the documents are not there, I just like to joke with her ) Okay, Mike-Suz, documents yet?

SheilaA still no docs !!!!!! Maybe I'll make a call to my TA.
Speaking of vintages, that would be a fine place to meet and say hello.
Suzanne is the wine lover in our family and on our last Freedom OTS cruise
she found a Chilean Shiraz @ $9 a glass that she simply adored.
We're usually at vintages each evening.
(That's when I sneak away over to Sorento's!!)

Don't worry, they'll be here before you know it.

I have never been on a Freedom class ship. My favorite ship is Majesty (as far as "smaller" ships go) and my favorite large ship(s) are Mariner and Explorer. I'm sure I will love Freedom. Are you main, second, or my time diners? I am second seating. Maybe we can meet at vintages some time before dinner. Would love to try the Chilean Shiraz. I'm sure Suz and I can find something to talk about while you're "sneaking" over to Sorento's

Which deck are you guys on? Do you have a balcony? Looking forward to meeting you both.

No balcony for us, we're on deck 10 cabin 1371
We've booked the early seating, Suz is used to having
dinner at 5pm so the late seating would completely throw her off!

I know the feeling, but it's the opposite. I always book second seating because if I choose main seating, I would miss dinner every night. I'm a pool deck girl myself and have so much fun while on the deck, that if I look up and see 5:45 on the clock, it's like "Oh well, no dinner for me" .

I'm jealous....how come you guys get docs in the mail?
For the last couple of cruises we have taken, we have not received anything in the mail. Just through the internet!!

I always used to enjoy the "packet" that came in the mail.

Have a great time.....we'll be on the Mariner in October!
