We hopped a cab to the terminal and it took less than five minutes to check in. Now in the suite lounge waiting for boarding time.

Great thread!! Can't wait to read more..

I'm sure I'll be watching you sail off into the sunset this afternoon from the web cam.

I am so desperately ready for our vacation, we need a break.

Thanks again for posting. Have a wonderful trip!

I just realized I have a glaring hole in the itinerary. Where will we go for the sail away?

For those that have been on board, any suggestions?

Thanks, sounds good. Do I need to bring a drink up there or will there be wait staff hovering around?

Another change to the schedule, our one token night in MDR is out. We are going to Izumi tonight. Sushi night

There won't be any staff there. And you have to go up the port passageway to get out there. You can't get out on the starboard side.

I don't remember staff being around, but that was almost 2 years ago. Remember, you have to use the port side passenger corridor to get there.
