We got everything we wanted! Palo brunch, champagne tasting and mixology class, and the princess gathering. The only thing we wanted that was full already was the chocolate and liquor tasting. Gold snagged that one up. Thanks for all the advice!

If that's Atlantis, probably best to use the cruise and excursion money to fly to San Francisco for a week!

Atlantis isn't bad, though it's overhyped.
Once I booked a night there on a DCL cruise, just so our boys could enjoy the water park area. As it turned out only one of them could go, but he had a great time! We just stopped by our room for a few minutes. After he was done with the water park we went back to the Wonder. There is a lot to do at Atlantis for a resort that is not connected to a theme park, but a couple nights there would be plenty.

I was in Vegas last month, and went to the Mandalay Bay for the Cirque Michael Jackson show. I didn't even notice they had an aquarium!

Congratulations! Now all you have to do is wait patiently for 90 days . . .

Thanks! I'd forgotten about getting all of the check-in stuff done ahead of time. Going to get on that now.
Just passing along some new information I just received. You can no longer begin the online checkin before your booking window is actually open. Our window opens on the 17th, we are paid in full. I just had a live chat with a CM who informed me that due to a recent update early checkin is no longer possible.
I told the live chat individual to put me down as one who strongly dislikes this new update.

This was my experience as well.

Thanks for the update. That's fairly new as I was able to do that for my February 3 cruise.
