May 20th (day before our cruise) Picked up my sister (Ashleigh). My mom paid for me and my half sister (not her daughter) to go on this cruise. I was so excited and so grateful!
May 21st We were flying out of Dallas/Fort Worth via American Airlines! Early EARLY morning, Ashleigh had no sleep and I only got an hour! But 4am we were up, packed, and ready to go! We parked at "The Spot" parking lot and they bused us over to the terminal. Not too expensive and easy, but the drivers are crazy!!
We were playing on the massive escalator ( Were on vacation who says we have to act our age!!)
The flight was fine.. well I slept through it, my sister however hates flying (hasnt done it since she was six) and gripped my arm every bump!! But we landed fine then went on the Subway/tram/train thingy to baggage claim.
Once we got our baggage that is when the "fun" really began. Back story: This was my sisters first cruise, my mom and I wanted to make this very special. So we went through CoCo Beach Shuttle to get a town car (we had one on our trip to California and it was fantastic, this time however...) once we got our bags we were told the car would be there and just to call to find out the stop number. Unfortutally the town car had a broken tire and we got a extreamly hot old van. But we understood and let it go. We just wanted to see our boat and we did!! (ignore the "love bugs" on the windshield)
Thanks for reading, more later!
