Good for you! We used to love getting the cruise doc booklet, and even when they did away with the booklet, it was still special to get the luggage tags in the mail. Now we just have the ritual of printing out the luggage tags and putting them in the luggage tag holders. Still, it's something to celebrate.

The Daquiri Shack sounds like fun. I wonder if the drinks are still $5. Went to the Fish Fry last August. We're not fans of Conch fritters.

The last time we were there (September 2012), the drinks were $6 for single rum and $7 for double rum. Not sure, but I think it was $5 for no rum.

I don't see a place to order luggage tags like usual, I had to print them from my e-docs. Am I missing something?

No, you're not missing anything. You only get to order luggage tags if you have a full suite (GS or better) or are Pinnacle level in C&A.

we got 8 inches out of Nemo. 4 inches fell late afternoon yesterday so DH got that plowed then while sugarplums were dancing in our heads another 4 inches fell. Schools were closed and I had to work the morning shift, even before the County snow plows were out. All I could do was stay in the rut the car ahead of me had made...

not a problem, he doesn't read CC, doesn't have an account with CC, in fact, he is not very well trained with the use of computers.

I had my TA call Royal about ordering the classic drink package. She was told that you have to buy them at a bar once on the ship. You can only pre order on the Allure and Oasis. Does anyone know if this is true or not. My TA called twice and got 2 different answers.
Pumbaamd, could you check on this when you get on the Monarch.

last 2 days have been clear blue skies. We've gotten nothing since the 8" Thurs/Thurs night. Tomorrow night (Sunday) they're calling for rain to sleet to freezing rain to thunder snow to snow. We'll see what develops.
