Since we are getting close to the 3 month mark I think it might be a good time to start it if they want to.

Mom is working on making pirate bandanas for us since we heard they no longer provide them. We have Tampa Bay Buc's matieral (we used to have season tix...Go Bucs) that she is going to use!! The FE still is in pieces, but she has it all laid out waiting to be put together.

I did mention it to Tarryn a couple of weeks ago but then wasn't sure if other kids were chatting

Hi all,
I have been catching up on some pages and can't believe the bandana issue! It's a good thing DH packs his own to use!

I order my new FE for my mom's cabin and am very excited about it!! She will be borrowing it for the cruise then I will hang it in my scrapbooking room afterwards!

I also told my niece about her present (the cruise) and she was very happy!! Now we can chat about it with her and I've passed along the Disboards to her.

One last thing, any more info on the FE- is there going to be a cut off date so we know the # that want to join in?
THanks!!!!

Which excursions would you suggest for us?

Thanks for any responses!

P.S.

I can't wait to read your thread when you return to see how your trip went.

First time in St Thomas? Do the boys....and you....snorkel? We absolutely love the Captain Nautica Snorkel Adventure (or whatever they call it)....it's more of a speedboat ride that my son loved....one snorkel spot is shallow, so you can either go out deeper, or walk up onto the beach to lounge, and at the other one, we've ALWAYS seen turtles.
We also manage to make time to walk to the Tram and go up and check out the view. We do that on our own.

For Tortola, we're taking a taxi on our own to Brewer's Bay....we'll get to see a bit of the island that way, and also swim, lounge and snorkel. There are a few small restaurants and facilities there.
I know a lot of people are taking the tour to The Baths.

Yeah, Brandon was excited about it...but no one is chatting so he gave up. Maybe we can try next month and see

I never thought about hanging up the FE...it will go good in my scrapbooking room/disney room!!

We haven't chosen a cut off date yet. I'm up for whatever anyone things about it. Any suggestions?

We get to book our cruise excursions, Palo and the spa things tonight!!! It will be my first time booking like this. Wish me luck!! Hopefully it is pretty easy.

We just want a couples massage in a villa, and Palo Brunch...plus two excursions...so it shouldn't be too bad!!

On the cruise list, I have everyone's name in blue that is doing the FE exchange, along with *FE* in that area. I do have a list going, if you look in my signature....there is a link in RED that will take you there. Or you can click here to get there!

Hi all,

It is a very heavy heart that I post this, but unfortunately we have decided to reschedule our cruise. We had planned to travel with another couple that is near and dear to us and sadly one of them is having to deal with major health issues right now. We have transferred our ressie to another date in the fall when hopefully our friend will be fully recuperated and very eager to sail.

I am sad that I will not get the chance to meet all of you, but hope to cross paths again during future sailings. This has been a very nice and friendly group and I will miss chatting with you. It is rare to have a thread without drama, but this one has been a pleasure.

Heather: Thank-you so much for being a fabulous list-keeper....you are a real gem! If you don't mind, please PM me your snail mail address. I am going out of town for a few days, but when I return there is something I want to send to you. That said, I guess you can remove me from all the lists, which is funny because I already bought all my FE gifts!

Have a wonderful cruise and don't be surprised if I still pop in from time to time.

Jeanne

Jeanne...I am so sorry that we're going to miss meeting you! It has happened to us before, too...not being able to make a planned cruise...so I know how hard it is. Hope to do it again someday!!

We got home late tonight and I popped in to see what everyone had been up to...and I'm so glad I did. Thanks for the reminder that we could book tonight!!!
We got our spa stuff, our Palo Brunch and the only excursion we wanted to book. We're not doing Palo dinner, so that leaves a couple of spaces open for everyone else.

So sorry

Jeanne,
So sorry you won't be making the cruise. Hopefully your friend's health will improve and you can happily cruise celebrating it.


All,
I make my excursion arrangements as well. We're doing Palo our Vow Renewal night (Thursday). Two beach excursions. Jon is going Parasailing on Castaway Cay too! I aslo set up a spa foot-love appointment for Sunday. My feet will need it after our days at WDW before the ship sails.

How about cutoff 30 days before we sail? That way we find the last minute people and can still have time to purchase our FEs. Although some people (myself included) like to start early!

I think this is good. We leave on May 9 so that gives me enough time to make sure I have everything before we go, but not worry about missing any latecomers.
