First of all, you have all been great to answer my previous questions! I PROMISE to come back, post a review and help others. As I write this, we are 11 days out!

My last few questions:

1) Non-formal nights - can I wear wind pants or do I have to wear regular pants (i.e. Dockers)?

2) Is milk free around the clock? My son has an allergy to corn so soda is out and he drinks 1/2 gallon a day!

3) Theft...is theft of nice deck shoes (nike thongs, etc) or other personal items common while away from your chairs and in the pools?

4) LAST ONE: Lockers in the health club. With 5 of us in the cabin, I planned to use to showers in the club. Are there lockers available with locks?

Thanks again! I am SO excited I cannot stand it!

Hi Lyle,
I am sure you are getting excited, now the countdown is only 10 days out ---
Q.1: Although they will not kick you out of the dining room, I think you would feel more appropriately dressed in dockers as opposed to windpants. Actually a nice pair of dress jeans would be preferable to windpants.

Q.2:Milk is free around the clock, but not always available. You can always get it if seated in the main dining room, or order from room service, and it is always at the breakfast buffet, but after that it is not always easy to find. Milk was (is) my daughter's beverage of choice also - so I used to take a couple of cartons from the breakfast buffet and put in the cabin fridge.

Q.3: Theft - Sure there is always the possiblity of theft when there are that many people in one place. BUT, in all of my years of cruising I have never had anything (nor have any of my friends) stolen at the pool - no matter how long my sandals and bag sat unwatched while I was in the Jacuzzi.

Q.4: I can't help you with this one. Sorry -

I doubt you'll like the idea of showering in the health club. Way too much trouble and I don't think they have lockers like you're picturing.

I don't know the make-up of your fivesome but here is an idea that works for our family of four (two male / two female).... We arrange for late seating at dinner. The "guys" get ready and head out to the sports bar, sushi bar or some other bar while the "gals" get ready for dinner. You meet at a predetermined place and time. Works pretty well and gives you a few minutes to chill with your son(s).

Thanks for the idea. I wish I had thought of that. I usually get ready first, then just sit in the rooom till the wife is ready.
