    Yeah, I was so sad, and she was so excited about it. but I realize she has a hard time going to walmart and she is right, she would not be able to do so much walking. my sister would have done a lot to get mom on track and keep her going, but mom said no. I feel so sad since she was so excited.

    Oh, and yes they still have shuffleboard on the ships.
    My daughter and I are really excited. we will know more about finances and such come January to plan for excursions, but we are planning now and having fun doing it.

      Actually you really should get one ASAP. The back-up isn't as bad as last year, but they're still taking a long time. If you plan on going next summer now is a good time to get your application in. Better safe than sorry!

        I got mine in 16 days last month. I think January is soon enough to start the process.

            Yes, our first cruise. Since it's a Disney cruise there aren't many "deals" to be found, but Mr. Lightyear999 is handling most of the details for us. It is one of Disney's rare repositioning cruises, 15 days long.

            We will probably be posting reports and pics during the trip since it's so long.

                $497.00 is really a great deal if it includes all the taxes and fees, but it's probably an inside cabin, so you might want to think about upgrading to an outside.
                Out of curiosity, what ship and date did they offer you?

                I did a Panama Canal cruise about 10 years ago from Ft Lauderdale to Acapulco and it was incredible. Going through the canal locks itself is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.
