Hi All, we have asked for late seating due to the time change. Also, I got a surprise in my mailbox. A call for jury duty starting the 15th of Dec. First time ever. Can you believe the timing? LOL

Maybelle,

What lousy timing for a jury summons!! I hope you don't have any problems getting jury duty postponed. I don't know how it works in other states, but here in Texas it's almost impossible to get a postponement. Don't get me wrong, serving on a jury is important, BUT I just can't see that it should superceed everything else, no matter what. About 8 years ago I got a summons for 3 days before a scheduled trip to Europe. I still had to report for duty, but luckily didn't get selected. I was really getting nervous over that one. Keep us posted & above all, GOOD LUCK.

Maybelle if you still have to show up just for selection process......... tell em' you knew a police officer at the site of the crime :) Works wonders ;) I got out of a murder trial that way. (Actually I really did know the first officer on the scene of the crime but didn't know it was him til they ask if we knew him.) Jury DUTY should NEVER interrupt your cruising!

Oh also, has anyone thought about what shore excursions they would be doing. I thought about the America's cup because it gets such rave reviews but I get reaaaaaaaally sea sick on boats that aren't ships or speed boats...... all that floating around on the waves. What about horseback riding or snorkeling???

Hi Michelle,
Who did you scare away??? Not me....
Just went clothes shopping in my cruise closet again.(most of those clothes still have tags on them waiting to be worn.LOL) Decided to change some of my outfits that I was taking, so there I go again open the suitcase switch reclose it again.....This time I am going to lock it and throw away the key.(not really) I realized I had too many white pants and not enough winter colors, and being that we are cruising durning the winter I might as well use my darker pants. (we wear white all year long here in Fla)
Who else is starting to pack?
Also I take downy fabric wrinkle release with me so incase my clothes are wrinkled this stuff works. And a night lite so I can see where I go in the middle of the night in case I get up.
Let's all start a list of what extra's we should pack.

Here's mine to start it off
Downy fabric wrinke release
nite lite

will add rest later

Chopper, we have to get the boys together on the first day of the cruise. My son is easy to get along with. I want to have dinner at the Noveau Supper Club, but I don't want to miss the lobster at dinner. Does anyone have or know where I can get the daily dinning menu for the Spirit in 12/03. I read on one of the boards a menu, but it wasn't specifically for the Spiri or did it list the days that the menu was for. For the Joe's Stone Crab Claws - how many do one get for dinner? My son and I love crab claws. What time does the dinner start at Noveau?

Hi All, well good news, I managed to have it postponed until February. I was very nervous about how I was going to get out of this but they were very nice when I told them I was going to be out of the country. Now I can keep packing and going crazy with how many things I shouldn't be taking. Thanks for all your good thoughts

Cruisergal,

We'll be in 7260 & 7266.

Couldn't find a menu for the Spirit but did find for a 8 Night Legend (Sister ship to Spirit).

If it all pans out. . . .

Wed At Sea Langoustino tails, Rack of lamb
Thu At Sea Lobster tail, Prime rib
Fri At Sea Shrimp cocktail, Pacific salmon, Roasted sirloin
Sat St.Maarten Snow crab cocktail, black tiger shrimp, Beef wellington
Sun Barbados Snow crab legs, Coq au vin
Mon Martinique Coquille St.Jacques, Filet mignon
Tue At sea Grilled jumbo shrimps, Chateaubriand
Wed At sea Delice newburgh, Roast beef au jus

Here's link: http://community.webshots.com/album/60506181nfcbXz/1

Friday night would be my pick if I was to forego the dining room for the Nouveau Supper club.

Cheers,

We are going on Spirit in February but I thought maybe one of you would know the answer to this question. Is ther a door in the divider between balconies which can be opened if you are traveling with the persons in the next stateroom? Also what is Carnival's telephone # ? Thanks, Marlene

Mar, I have read that you can ask the cabin stewards to remove the glass seperating the balconies and they will. The number I have for them is 1-800-438-6744 and from there you will work through a menu system unless you already have the 5 digit extention. For special needs I work with Sophia and she is at #23017.

My extra's so far are:
-Bungee cord and magnet (for holding balcony door open and preventing the ac from turning off so that the below below us don't get condensation build up on their ceiling.).
-Electrically surge strip (there is limited outlets in the cabin...... like only 1 or 2).
-Miniture Christmas Tree

Can't think of what else right now but will post more later.

Thanks, Moon... I called Carnival and they said the partions on Spirit cannot be opened between cabins. Thanks for the Telephone number.

This is slipping down the list so thought I would ask a quesiton. Isn't the downtown Miami that is easiest access for the Port?
