Thanks !!! Seriously, Thanks !!!! Believe it or not I never complain about anything. When people asked about my vacation and I told them everything was great but was very disappointed with the Disney Cruise and what went wrong, everyone said I should write a letter. My Aunt suggested I go here to write the letter. As, you can tell I am not very good at it. I wrote it really fast and just tried to get my points across. I had no idea I even would get feedback. I do not use the internet at all. I have never been in a chatroom, my space I don't even text people on my phone. I live a crazy life and simple do not have the time. I can't believe how mean people can be. I have to say it really got to me. I know it is silly but things people were saying was pretty funny knowing they have no idea what type of person I am. Someone even said I was trying to get pity and play the sympathy card. That was not my intension at all but how could they say such things. My best friend died at 35 leaving 2 small kids behind. Now I am faced with some scary issues myself. I think it will turn out to be great, I will find out in a couple of weeks, but my goodnees. I am sorry you lost your MOM at a young age and I have great hope I will be around for my kids for a while.
Anyway, about them not paging for my daughter they didn't even try. They said that they can not guarantee we would get a page on the island of Nasau when we dropped them off. I told them to please try and also gave them our cell phone #'s They said it would cost a fortune cause we were in a different country to contact us by cell, I told them that it was ok to call. I really thought they would try and page me but they didn't cause I would of gotten the page. I was very close to the ship when it happened cause I was really freeked out leaving them on the ship without us there. That is why I personally didn't stay on the island and my husband did his thing with my mother-in-law. Anyway, she was so upset when I got there I didn't say anything to them as to why they didn't even try cause I alreay knew the anwser. They didn't think they could reach me by pager.
My husband and I have parents that live in different states. We never leave our kids alone and would never take a vacation without them. We were looking forward to using the daycare at night for a couple of hours. I had no idea where people got the idea I left my kids in there all day and night. We spent a couple of days before at coco beach and 3 days after at the nick hotel. YES, I WANTED SOME TIME WITH MY HUSBAND ON THE CRUISE. THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT ON GOING ON THE DISNEY CRUISE. (sorry, that was for the others who thought that was so terrible of me)
My little one like the lab. It is a different room for the 5 and ups called the lab. I took him there during family time cause they had lots of games. Your alowed to use the daycare when it is closed and would take them there to play games and stuff. My little one is a big into game. They had trouble in there and it is his favorate.
Now I am stating to babble. But, thank you again for all the thing you said.
P.S. as far a the refund I really don't care. When they asked what I would like them to do I really had no idea. I do not wan't a discount on another cruise cause I wouldn't do it again and could not imagine what they possible could do to make up for the fact that that whole reason for taking this trip was for the daycare. Also, the kids that were in the daycare were potty trained and didn't have diapers, so the fact that there were 3 poop droping from 3 kids I just picture kids pooping and no one taking notice very scary. I just couldn't think of what I wanted them do so I put down a refund. I do think other people and parents will be more aware when taking the cruise though. I do highly suggest that you wait till all kids are over 5 beacuse the older daycare is much better. My 3 soon to be four year old really enjoyed that side much better but was too young to go in without me.
