Ok I am going to start my trip report.
We left out to go to the airport Thursady morning at 5am. I was up at 3:30am getting the kids up and dressed (just had went to be at midnight because I packed at the last min. like an idiot) Get to the airport without an incident, then I guess due to lack of sleep, we started getting on each others nerves. Let me go over my cast
flight took us to MCO on time, my youngest two children thought we were going to the hotel for a few days. Once we hit MCO they knew the Mouse was involved. We took the shuttle to Port Canaveral which was packed (the shuttle):laugh:
note: They used to check you in for the cruise at the dock, but now if you fly you check in at the airport, get your key to the world etc there. Only folks that drive straight there check in at the dock. (received my Castaway Club lanyards for myself, DH and youngest two, oldest chose not to go on the first cruise despite our using points for her to go,so she didn’t receive one, this was her first cruise. She wasn’t happy, that’s what happens when you say no to the mouse.:laugh:)
We arrive at the dock at about 11:00am, can’t get on the ship until 12. Hanging around, check out the DVC booth which was unmanned :pinch: Signed the kids up for the Oceanears Club and then went and took pics to go with our KTW cards. A lot has changed in the last 14 mths from the first cruise. A lot more security measures. Once on board we got lunch at Parrot Cay, on of the three main dining halls. It has a island theme, during lunch we ran into our old server Vesco loved him.
Lunch(don’t remember what anyone ate :laugh::laugh::laugh:) was over, but too early to enter the rooms (hallways sectioned off until 1:30) so we watched a movie by the pool. DD5 driving us bananas to drop her off at the kids club, but to our horror doesn’t open until 6:00pm. (the first cruise we kept them with us most of the time because they were so little and we get crazy for our kids, but the little time they spent there they loved and they made us promise to let them spend more time there)
note: if you have a problem with the chemicals in hand sanitizer or sani-wipes this is not the place for you, 'cause you’re hit up the whole voyage:laugh:
