This is my first time posting to this board. I have spent months looking through all of the advice in order to decide the best cruise to take with my husband and our friends. This has been so helpful. We are going on vacation for the first time with out the kids (this will be our fist big trip since our honeymoon 13 years ago without children)
We are booked on deck 10 room 1288. Our friends are right by the elevators down towards the back of the ship about 20 rooms (is that aft?). Both of these are Balcony rooms, so we are looking forward to sunrises in the morning.
Today I was so excited when I realized we only have 19 more days until we leave for Miami. I have been on one cruise (Carnival)15 years ago, but it will be my husbands and the other couples first time. We can't wait!! Although the next 19 days are going to be crazy as I get all the precruise preparations for us as well as the kids details ready for Grandma to watch. She is flying from California to South Carolina to watch them for the week. Yeah MOM!! I will be so excited to get on the ship and veg out the first day (if that is possible with all there will be to do).
Does anyone know if there was any damage to RCI's stop in Labadee from huricane Dean. We are leaving for our cruise on FOS September 16th and have signed up to do the zip line. We were really looking forward to it, and would be bummed if it was shut down due to damage. I was also wondering how much damage the happened on the island on the news they said that Haiti was getting hammered, but I haven't heard anything since it passed and moved on.
