Once again thank you all very much for your kind words.
Suz is reading this and saying:
YEA YEA!! TRY AND GET ANOTHER UPGRADE!!
I on the other hand am pleased with what they got and I don't feel the need to pursue anything more. Same goes for Karl and Shane who are VERY happy with their upgrade. I am SO not the owners suite type....
just a regular kinda guy with a guitar : )

Venice, luckily Karl has not been deployed to either of the sandboxes
mainly because his specialty (patriot missles) apparently aren't being set up in those regions. They are currently stationed at Ft. Hood Texas.

Traveltime, Suz and I moved to Spring Hill in April of 2003 from New York City. Crystal River is 2 towns north of us and Palm Harbor is 4 or 5 towns south of us. Where did you move to 20 years ago?
Why would anyone want to move away from here.... it's paradise 8)

missiles.... 8) 8) 8) coooooooooool 8) 8) 8) ...we Air Force guys know a thing or two about that topic

As Dads, I understand about not pressing the issue...Moms, on the other hand will tell the world about their sons/daughters serving our country

I assume you will post a picture on formal night when they are in their dress uniforms

I have no idea if they're packing their dress uniforms.
He didn't last year on our cruise.
Suz and I have decided to skip formal night for the first time on this cruise.
We'll be winging it at the windjammer.
It doesn't hold any appeal to us any longer.

traveltime- that was such a nice post, from the heart as you say, and I hope that these boys get the"ROYAL" treatment.

Surfguy, They sure deserve the Royal treatment, don't they? It's wonderful that they are going to be able to truly get some "Royal" R&R - no better way (in my biased opionion ) than on a cruise.

Mike, We left FL because of my husband's career and have made 5 major moves since. Folks used to ask if we were Military because we moved so much. Our goal is to move back to FL (Ocala area) in the next few years. Had plans to a year ago, but the economy got in our way. I had to smile about you & Suz skipping formal nights on your next cruise. Yup, Tom (husband) and I are doing the same with our cruise a week from Sunday. I was getting my clothes together yesterday and it felt odd but GREAT not pulling out the formal duds. We decided that this cruise, we are going to have breakfast on our balcony and do the Dining Your Time (or whatever RCCL terms it) and just chill! Any excursions, we booked as late in the morning as possible. This past year has been a stressful one (work wise) for Tom and I want him to have a totally relaxing vacation. Of course, with the hurricane season starting off in FULL swing we're hoping we can even get to San Juan on the 30th!

Let it be known that I have just been hornswaggled into doing formal night!

When Suz called Karl and found out that he's bringing his dress uniform, she marched into my office and said get dressed we're going shopping!!!!
I tried to fight her off but you guys know how it is... she won in the end and I spent last night in dressing rooms buying an outfit for formal night (not TOO formal thankfully)

Maybe I can avoid formal night on the Oasis in 2010....

Hey Venice; great idea. If RC doesn't, I'd chip in to accomodate them all.
Anyone else?
