    So... I'm booking my first Disney Cruise...

    ... as my "Yay! I graduated nursing school!" present to myself. Doing it this weekend. Hopefully I won't jinx this and fail out of nursing school now.

    Anyhoo I maybe taking my good friend (apparently it is like $300 more, not including air travel, for 2 people to go than just the single lady price. I kinda' call that bunk.), the 7 day Western Caribbean, yay! Using my tax refund (yes I am that anal/ scary on top of things where I did my taxes before Jan. ended). So I have a couple of questions:

    1.) Temp/weather in July? My mom was concerned about hurricanes... I'm lived in Southern California, but now am used to Western Washington weather.

    2.) I've gone on 3 day cruises before, but what do I need to pack for a 7 day cruise? How many formal nights are there on a Disney cruise? What's dinner wear like? How much can I pack?

    3.) What do I need to know (aside from the "having fun" part)?

    4.) Tattoos... I know Disney is a family friendly place, but I have 1 visible tattoo (my lamb that's my avatar on my Achilles) and I'm getting another one (the Florence Nightingale lamp on the other Achilles- my friend and I are getting them for graduating). How is that going to work?

    5.) Graduating (can you tell I'm psyched?!), and I want Mouse ears with "Nurse Kim" on them (been wanting that since I started my CNA program)... can I do that? And I heard the doors to the cabin are metal and you can do magnets... Would it be okay if I brought a magnet that said "Kim graduated nursing school!"? Or things to decorate our door? Granted kid-friendly mother approved things but still?

    I am kinda' giddy excited. I swear today, a snow day, I was bathing suit shopping instead of studying for my test. Yeah... I know my priorities are in line. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    July should be nice and warm. Check weather sites, see what the history is for some of the islands you'll be visiting. Seven day cruise- just a few more clothes than you needed for the 3 day. Probably one formal night. We did a 15 night cruise, and we had two formal nights. Dinner: we've worn anything from semi-dressed up clothes to jeans. About all we were told is to avoid wearing shorts.

    Tattoos... don't know that you have much to worry about as a guest.

    Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! You're going to have a blast. Not sure about the name on the ears, but they should be able to do that. I think. And yes, the doors are metal, lots of people bring magnetic things to decorate their doors.
