Hi, Its getting close and we all can't wait. We have never been on the Dawn either. It really looks like an amazing ship. From what read about it, the kids should have a great time. Hopefully they won't get bored with the lenght. I know me and my wife won't.
Let me know how this sounds. Looking at the floor plan, I was thinking about by sprinkles ice cream bar (which just so happens to be next to the topsiders bar.) We will be at the pier by noon. Hopefully on the ship by 1:00. Hopefully the weather will be nice, and the outside bar there will be open. If it isn't open, how bout we go there anyway every half hour. (1:00, 1:30 - etc)
My tickets say check in starts at 2, but every cruise I went on, (only 3) they let you on earlier. Unless the weather is lousy out, we will be outside most of the afternoon. Its neat sailing down the hudson, so by sailing time, we should be able to meet there. Since it will probably be cool out, I will be wearing a ny giant jacket. (sorry, you are probably a eagle or steeler fan) If its any consulation, i was rooting for the steelers.
By the way, my name is Craig, and my wifes is Donna.
2 weeks one day and counting.
