He got it about 4-5 days before we left on vacation and I was 99% sure he had it. He made me wait until the day before we were getting off the cruise though to actually give it to me. We were travelling with both our families and had very little time alone!

I’m pretty sure he bought it and three days later proposed.

Once it shipped and he actually got it, one day. I even got to be there when he picked it up, but absolutely refused to look at it. The very next day, he proposed, and I am SO glad I waited to look at it!!

About 12 hours. It arrived on Christmas Eve around 7pm before going to a family event. He proposed on Christmas Day around noon or so.

He put a payment on it in November and physically had it in April. And he proposed in mid-May. So 6 months.
