Julie- I'm watching for storms too. We leave the 7th on the NCL Dream. Sorry we are not on the Conquest with you. You will have a wonderful time, we went on the Conquest last October. She's a great ship. Visit the piano bar, lots of fun, though its sounds lame. You have to go late (like 11PM or so before it really gets rocking)

Hi Jim. I heard the Dream was a great ship. I actually was on the Conquest last year in Oct. Had a blast so we are going again. The bars were fun and of course, most of my evenings were spent at the craps table. Have a great time on your cruise. Be sure to try the Belekin (not sure how to spell) beer in Belize. It is great.

OK.. WHEN did you go last October. ALL of my evenings were spent at the craps table, so I tink I would have met you if we were on the same week. We went during the week of Oct 02.. which was the Texas school, fall break..

I do not remember a Julie, so maybe you were on a differnt week then me.

Its a small world I guess. I hope the Dream is a fun cruise. I don't need a fancy pants ship, but I do need one that has a fun loving attitude.

That is Wild! We were on it the same time. Keller ISD fall break. I was the blonde there most every night. Sometimes I was loud,depending on how many drinks I had before I came down. I met several of the "gamblers" there every night. Even saw a guy in his bath robe on a slot!! Did you happen to stay at the Moody Gardens the night before? I met several people there before we even left. Were you at Margaritaville by chance last year?

Julie, SanDee- Well, we are all from Keller then. Wow .. what a small world indeed. I must have met you Julie.. I was on the table every night too. We probably were cheering each other on because I am a loud Craps player too. (Wasn't me in the bath robe though.) I did very well that cruise.. I came off the ship only having paid about $200 for our cruise! I'm trying the Dream this time, but since it looks like NCL is pulling out of Houston after this season, it will most likely be back to CCL next year. (Unless RCCL brings in a Voyager class ship which I believe they are planning). Of course that all depends on what the school calendar does. The wife teaches in KISD, so we are at the mearcy of the school breaks.

Have a great time! We will have to help each other on the dice throwing via metal telepathy though... Think 9's... my favorite point...

Hi Jim.
Enjoy the cruise this year because next year we will not have a Fall Break. That really sucks. On craps,I will be betting on the 6. That is my lucky number! Have a great time and let me know how the Dream is in comparison to the Conquest.
