Tracy, Thanks for the tips. I am really getting quite exited about the trip. this is going to be a very loooooooooong week.

My partner, Steve is Welsh (and very proud of it)he is having a birthday whilst we are on the second week (Western). I am hoping to surprise him with a cake and cabin decorations, but I was unable to specify a date on the Gifts Order Form, so I will have to arrange that when we get on board. He is also looking forward to winning the cost of our holiday back in the casino (Some Hopes!!)

I am looking forward to everything, and also look forward to "bumping" into you on board.

Congratulations, your love has seen you through the biggest test of all "Marriage" Well done.

You are sooooooooooooo right about that long week!

Sunday could be months from now as the minutes just crawl by!

I am so looking forward to dressing up for dinner and gorgeous food and wonderful sandy beaches and snorkeling and DH is scuba diving and little one and I are SHOPPING!

We are having a little bit of early summer here - it's currently 76 degrees F! Won't last though! Rain tomorrow and then - SNOW - predicted for Friday!

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to shop for MORE clothes for the cruise.

Make sure you bring lots of shorts, short skirts, tank tops and bathing suits. It's much, much hotter there than England. We were in Naussau a couple of years ago and I was horrified to find myself short of clothing! The humidity levels are very high so you soak through many changes per day. I've budgeted two sets plus bathing suits each day.

Apparently there are laundry facilities (and an iron) on board we can use. I'm sure I'll find myself there once or twice! Yuck! I'll just have to have more wine to counter balance that domestic feeling!

I'll be easy to find one board. Late dining and waist length brown hair on an "old girl". Ain't common!

Have a wonderful flight with your Welshman and a lovely cruise in the Caribbean!

Hi Tracy,

It's slowly getting here...I finish work tomorrow,(Thursday) and today I was promoted, so we will have another special celibration on board.

I work for Rolls-Royce and we are flying via Delta Airline (One of my customers) Hope the engines hold out...if not, I know who to contact...Me...Oh no!!! I'll be on the Plane..Scary!!!!

I have just had my locks cut off, so if you see a short dark haired woman with a LARGE, balding Welshman, come say hello. I will look for your hair as we also are dining late. I am looking forward to doing some Scuba diving and Steve wants to have a go at some Jet Sking. I will also be snorkling, shopping, sightseeing, shopping, and not forgetting the shopping.

I was trying to find somewhere good to do some last minute (Guess What) SHOPPING in Miami,and I have found out that opposite the Hotel where we are staying overnight before we sail. Guess what! there is a Huge SHOPPING Mall. I have a feeling that I am going to enjoy myself?!?

Look forward to seeing you and Cruisin Nurse on board. By the way who is DH?

That shopping plaza is called "Pier 66" according to our TA if it's the one close to the Miami airport. I asked her where I could get some key lime juice as I have a recipe for the most awesome key lime pie and it just dosen't taste right with regular limes. Key limes are tiny and twice as sweet. Can you tell I love to cook? She said there may be a shuttle that will take you there as it dosen't lay in a direct line from the airport. I LOVE to shop! Have fun.

Whatever you do don't let the "carbeuretor" fall out of the plane! This according to my grandfather or 90 years. LOL

Congratulations on the promotion! What a wonderful welcome to a wonderful vacation.

I haven't worked in 21 years. Got preggers and that was the end of that - 3 kids later. I'll shut up now or we'll have nothing to talk about at dinner!

Bon Voyage! (airflight over shouldn't be too bad but we were horribly jetlagged when we did it.) I hope you two aren't. But then again two weeks in paradise to recuperate isn't so hard to take.

Sorry about the computer Lingo there!

DH means "dear husband" or if you are angry with him "D$#k head". My DH is Scott and he's wonderful.

LOL means Laugh out loud
ROTFLMAO means roll on the floor laughing my A$$ off.

btw means by the way

Everything can be shortformed for the typing impaired.

Sorry about that; it was rude of me. I'm a moderator on a chat board originating out of Pennsylvania and I am so comfortable with "cyber-friends" (after 3 years they truly are friends - pick up the phone, e-mail, meeting, etc.) and I sometimes forget.

Our Air Canada flight lands at 10:30 am on the 20th so we'll be hustled directly to the ship. You'll probably already be booked on.

I AM SO EXCITED! And you get TWO cruises back-to-back - you LUCKY thing!
