I think my time dining is just the one dining room Carol , or at least it has been on all our other sailings ,funny enough its always been on deck 5 level so maybe that's the deck they assign for my time .
I haven't put anything into a case yet but it's all laid out on the spare bed , umpteen pairs of " under crackers " lol , have no idea why but I always shove in an extra few pairs lol .oh my too much information lol

Cant believe how many posts there are on here since yesterday! the last cruise we went on hardly anyone posted.

We have gone fot the traditional dining at 6.00, we are pleased as we have the same table we had when we cruised last August. Was a nice table for 4 right next to a window so you had a fantastic view of the ocean as you ate your meal.

Will have to go to the windjammer a couple of evenings though, usually check out the menu during the day and decide then where we are going to eat.

Does anyone know how many ice shows there are on a 10 night cruise? we have my parents with us and they really want to see them.

Can you also add me to the list.

Postie - Andy(me) & Tanya
Your added Andy .

Just a thought Gill , is that A drink or a drink off everyone , if it's the latter you won't see me for the rest of the cruise , I will definitely be under the table , unconscious .

It's a drink from everybody Linda, that's only fair because in the unlikely event of you not winning you have to supply the framed photo!!!

Why is there always this fairy tale (I would have said falacy/phalacy/falassy but didn't know how to spell it) that men take less clothes than woman........their shoes take up more room and add more weight than anything else. Ok, they look in the suitcases and say it's mostly our stuff but they forget about the suit holders. Sorry Andy and John but you know it's true lol.

Jess that's cheating, you're having two holidays for the price of one.

As for the other 16 Linda, they probably really are shy (unlike you and Carol who just pretend) and are nervous about breaking into the twenty conversations that we always seem to have going on here.......at least it's stopping the bad habits or eating or drinking while using the computer - we'd choke with the amount of laughter that goes on.

I hope you sleep better tonight Carol.

I'm off to bed so I know that between the early risers and people having trouble sleeping we'll have reached the other magical number.

Oh dear Sam, you started off seeming very sensible but you're now as mad as the rest of us.

Linda, I can't believe you're still in bed.......no grandsons today?
