JulieK- Only 8 more days (10 more for you) before we are off and cruising! Time to start doing some serious packing/planning. I guess that means i need to get the suitcases out (I hate to do that since it FREAKS out the dog)
Same thing here with the dogs. They start ignoring me and start moping around the house. I cannot get suitcases out until the day before! We are actually leaving next Friday and are doing 2 nights in Galveston. The kids are dying to go to the Sclitterbaun there. Good luck on your craps game..I am feeling the luck.
DHenry, I am on the Spa deck(11).
Wow, I thought it was just our pets. Or dog does the same thing.. I bring the suitcases into the house and the dog gets a look on her face like she just got yelled at for something. The cat ... well the cat acts like we don't exist anyway, so its hard to tell.
Julie- We are going down Friday too. But since we are going NCL, we are in Houston for the night. I didn't know that Galveston had a Schlitterbaun. That will be fun. And you are doing the Spa Deck again eh? I think if we were doing the Conquest again, that would be my choice, I really liked those floor to ceiling windows. And good luck on your craps game too. Maybe having the both of us out there floating around hoping for "no sevens" will bring good Karma to the Caribbean. Have a good trip!
I bet we could all tell stories about our pets knowing we are leaving. I have three little dogs. We will be gone from home 23 days. I have found a lady to stay at the house with them at night. They will be fine during the day. Puppy door and fenced in yard. I am getting so anxious, I may sleep in my suitcase. My husband has been on one cruise and it trying to keep me settled down!!
The pet friendly cruise would be a hit I think. ALthough my husband said that is the best part of his trip not having to deal w/the animals! I have them spoiled rotten. Anyhow, if you are in Houston you should go to Sclitterbaun, although it is only open on weekends and you leave on Sat. It is new this year and is next door to the Moody Gardens. They have a convertible roof where it is open year round and the pools are heated from Sept 30-April sometime. It sounds pretty cool so we will definately check it out. I enjoyed the spa deck so we actually have the room next door to where we stayed last year. You cannot beat the view. I hope you have a fun cruise and we will have to compare notes when we get back. Hopefully we will both win enough money to have our trip paid for.
