How nice it is to seethat in a mere 7 days we'll be cruizin... It has been a long 6 months waiting. I am like a little kid with ADDHD... I'm 90% packed, Checking my list, again..... and again, and again... to ensure i do not leave anything behind. I've been lurking on youtube spying cruise videos... UM, can you say addict??... Have called my Mother to see if she is packed and ready, this is her first cruise and is a fitting mothers day gift to her(although i didn't even realize it when i booked), She too is getting cabin fever having to work another week before leaving Ohio.. she is contemplating calling in sick and comming early. I told her not to bother as that would mean less money for her to spend on me while we are on the cruise... she laughed at that one.

I am so tired of the corporate world and the hoops you are made to jump through.... If i were older i would definitely leave the rat race behind in a heartbeat... If corporations thought more of their employees they would not have dreams of the company going down a blaze of firey uninsured madness. I mean, being competitive is one thing, but to expect the impossible is inhumane. We have one of these new "directors" who is gung ho on beating all of his fellow "directors"(dictators would be more appropriate), numbers.. It is enough to make one want to go on a cruise and never go back...

Which is why i am so glad to be going on this cruise... and contemplating another in the fall. At this point in time... i think i will need 2 cruises a year to keep me going in this work environment. Cruises are the only thing keeping me from just packing up a small amount of provisions and walking off into the woods somewhere and leave it all behind.... So in the upcomming weeks i am vacating my position and enjoying life, i will be taking a few thousand pics, and several hours of video... a selfish endeavour to look back on in an effort to remain sane... Upon my return to "civilization"(or the rat race as i like to call it) i will post a review, submit my photos, and perhaps share a video or 2...

Here's to my remaining sane... or at least the closest i'll ever come to it..:cheer:

Better check up on it, heard some rumors about the Legend going into emergency drydock immediately after its current cruise due to an issue with the recumbent filtration system that controls the recirculating air in the internal ventilation, said it created a serious viral issue and required more maintenance that could be handled at sea since it affected all open areas of the ship.

What a happy thought! What a good time you will have. Being a SDM is always good. Glad your mom is enjoying the joy of the countdown, that's part of it.

:biggrin: Be careful of crabs coming up your toilet and the kitchen crew collecting for dinner every two hours!

LOL... as long as the crabs are collected in a timely manner i'm good... It's those damn dockings and bouys i think carnival has trouble with.. lets see they had to docking incidents in Coz this year, and a close call with a wayward bouy.... doesn't make me too confident in the bridge crews..

Thanks everyone for the well wishes.. except for bob...everybody feel free to smack bob as you pass him in the posts..

Although i do have to aprecieate his twisted sense of humour...muhahahaha!!

All kidding aside, i plan on having a great time. Don't know if it will be more fun watching my mother become an addict, or the actual cruise itself... anyways, it will be relaxing nonetheless.

Nitestar I hope you have a great cruise, and perhaps we'll dock somewhere on the same day and run into one another... who knows.. stranger things have happened...

5 MORE DAYS.... WOOOT!!!! 3 MORE UNTIL I AM ON VACATION... FREAKIN AWESOME!!!

I hope you also have a fantastic cruise MisterD21. And I'm sure your mother will become an addict within 24 hrs. of boarding the ship! As far as being in the same port as you at the same time....I will be in Jamaica on Wed., Grand Cayman on Thur., and Cozumel on Fri.

Have a wonderful cruise!! :sunny:

Know you'll have a great cruise. You're going to enjoy watching your mother discover our addiction. SunFlower and I took her parents on their virgin cruise a couple years ago and they're still talking about it! We have just over 3 months till our next one and the time seems to be dragging. Bring back a lot of photos. We're looking forward to them.
