Please also note that it is a 5-minute stroll from where the buses drop us off at the Plaza of Nations to the dock for the boat

PLEASE remember to bring your sunblock, sunglasses and possibly a hat on the cruise. Between the sunshine and the water reflection, you'll be burnt in no time if you aren't protected! And no one wants to go through the rest of the weekend feeling like a lobster! Also, recall you'll be on a boat with narrow walkways between floors and slippery decks. Don't wear heels or slick-soled shoes. Water sandals or sneakers are your best bet!

As I am trying to pack, I decided to re-read some of the posts. When I came to yours, I started chuckling. Why you ask? Because I always over pack and never use everything I bring with me. I am a chronic over packer! I just thought it was funny that I was reading a reminder to bring stuff (practical as they may be) that i hadn't thought of  :-\ and I am already having difficulty packing stuff I did think of.
Thanks for the reminder though!  8)  Great suggestions that will force me to go shopping once more.

Hello all! Took me an hour to figure out registration whew OK

I am flying in (domestic) with AC at 10:31am (touchdown time) IF I do not bring luggage and ONLY carry on, I can possibly make it to the hotel by 11:00 if I RUN...

Is there any way to arrange a shuttle pick up to take me right to the bus? Will I have time to register/get my ticket?

Can I get any help with that?

I didn't know what time the cruise was when booking my flight so I apologize this is partly my fault.  I would hate to miss the boat over 5-10 minutes!

Let me know what I can do, and I'm going to try and pack my bag in carry on ONLY (sheesh that's gonna be tough for me)

I don't know about all of your questions, but I would take a cab to the hotel. Shuttle might take too long (I have to say I didn't use it though because I'm staying downtown. But from previous experience with shuttle to hotel rides, I wouldn't risk waiting).

Hope you all have fun at the cruise, as I'll be missing it due to work and can't make it until evening. Guess I'll try hotel shuttle and see how long that'll take in the evenings, think I might even miss the evening event.
