Welcome

Hi!

Thanks for finding me and joining me at my new little blog. I've always thought about starting a blog, but didn't really have the time, direction and motivation. {actually I have started a few, but didn't actually go anywhere with them, but that's another story...}

Over the years I have used and read many blogs, forums, etc. to get information and found many "experts" along the way. Some of those "experts" I have totally agreed with, others I didn't seem to agree with at all. Let's face it, there really is no right way or wrong way to do anything in life. Everyone is different and what works for one may not work for the other. I'm not going to claim to be an expert. My point in this is just to share things from my point of view, and hopefully the point of view of some of my family members (if they are willing to join me).

I love to cruise, and my family tries to take at least one cruise a year. We live in Central Florida and are huge Disney Geeks. This blog is going to include our thoughts and comments on the vacations we take, the time we spend in the parks as well as my thoughts on any news and information relating to our vacation preferences.

I am also going to fill in the blanks and talk about vacations we have taken, and what we liked (or didn't like) on previous vacations.

Welcome aboard. Hope your enjoy our journey.

Mariner of the Seas Live Blog: Pre-cruise Eve

Tomorrow we leave for Miami!  We are heading down one day early so we can arrive and stay over for the night.  We always like to be closer to the port on arrival day than having the long drive the same day.  Living in Florida gives us the opportunity to cruise from all the Florida ports, so a drive to Miami is not bad at all.  By going the day before it gives us that peace of mind for the drive just in case any issues occur.  Plus, we can arrive at the port nice and early on embarkation day with a good night sleep the night before.



We are cruising with good friends this cruise. Part of our Royal Castaways group!  (A cruise is always fun when you can be with friends and family!) We have a group of 7 this trip. We are very much looking forward to the whole experience.  It’s a four night cruise + the night before, so it is shorter than the normal 7 night cruises we do, but we are really looking forward to the new Mariner! So much to see and do!

We are staying in Junior Suites this cruise!  We originally booked Balcony staterooms and one day we saw that there was a really good sale on the Junior Suites for the same prices as what we were paying for the regular balcony.  Now we get some more space and we also have an aft view.  It will bring back some great memories from our presidential suite which was in the same location on the Freedom of the Seas!

More to come all week!
