10/24/2009 Bash on the Boat (I'm with B.O.B.) Thread #21!

This is Thread #21 of the BOB threads. Over 77,000 posts and still going strong.

If you're new to our group, you're not alone. Several of us have sailed together before (on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise - a.k.a. Konked Kruisers) and several more are new. To indicate the ones new to the group, we have put an * infront of their DIS name.

The following is the same as the other first posts. For those of you new to our DIS Meet thread - WELCOME. There is plenty of good info in this post.

As usual, I'll be back here to update this post periodically. I will try to keep important information up here for all to reference as well as for all our new friends who come to cruise with us. If something of importance comes up, PM me and I will add the link.

We have dubbed this cruise "The Bash on the Boat" because so many people are celebrating birthdays or anniversaries on this cruise. You will also see "KK2" in the title. As you will read, many of us just sailed together on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise. So, with many of us returning here, we are dubbing this KK2. For those of you who didn't sail with us, please don't feel that you are not part of the group. We are a very open and welcoming/friendly bunch. We had such a great cruise last time, but feel it will be even better this time. Come along and enjoy the fun. We will get off-topic many times over the next 2 years, but it is a great way to get to know everyone.

First, here is the list of Characters:

* 2Princes_&_1Princess = Brandee and Justin and their 3 kids. Florida.
A Fat English Gent = Chris and Hazel and their 3 kids. England.

*disney1990=Libby and Skip. Maryland
* DISNEYDUET = Shelley and Woody. Virginia.
dizneycrazy4 = Janice and Mark with their DS(14) and DD(10). Wisconsin.

I will try to update that list as we go. If I forgot anyone or if you want different info posted, please PM me. I will NOT be putting room numbers up on this post.

A good place to start for planning this trip would be Cass' website. She has done a great job to organize almost everything you'll need for this cruise and posting here on the BOB board. Here is the link to Cass' site Cass B.O.B. Information Site

Here are links to posts that we found important through this and the previous threads.

IMPORTANT DATES
Online Reservations

SIGNATURE LINE LOGOS
Besides the logos you can find on Cass' site, here are the ones with the "Ship in the Bottle".

DIS TAG
More to come on this. If you see us talking about it and want to play, please PM Karen (Karen Mouse) or Jen (millerpjm).

Here is how DIS Tag is played

CLIP ART FOR DOOR MAGNETS
Door Magnet Clip Art


EXCURSIONS

[B][http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=3265/B]

St. Thomas and St. John DCL Excursions

Non Disney Excursions for St. Thomas and St. John


Incase anyone is wondering what the FO game we play here on the B.O.B. cruise meets thread, he is the explanation:

FO is a game (for lack of a better description) that was started on the Konked Kruiser thread that some of us belonged to for the October 07 cruise. Don't ask me who started it or how.

Anyway, the game in a nutshell....if you post, and your post is the beginning of a page, then you try to get the second post on the page also. It means you have started a "Fresh One" or "First One" (I forget what the actual term was).

Now, this isn't always as easy as it seems - if there are multiple posters on at the same time, and someone else gets the second post, you don't get to "claim the FO". The 40 second rule between postings comes into play.

I'm starting to read up on activities onboard and shore excursion.

The wine tasting sounds good.
Has anyone ever done that one?
I'd like to try the Margerita and Martini tastings too.

But why on the wine tasting write up on
http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/cruis...inetasting.htm
is Champagne spelled Champaign?
I googled it and there is no spelling like that except for the name of a city
in Illinois.
Do they not know how to spell?

Arleen - the wine tasting was good and Rick enjoyed the beer tasting (there are two tastings, with different beers at each session). I didn't enjoy the Margerita or Martini Tasting...not my cup of tea.
