For all of you planning to do the Baths, be sure to read the reviews from prior cruisers for helpful tips! I learned enough about them to know I'm not interested in going. If you're prepared though, it could be fun!

What is your favourite sweet treat?

Ummm, well gee, so many to choose from

Me - Lemon Merengue Pie, though with our upcoming Canadian Thanksgiving, I'll also add Pumpkin Pie
Christine - Bitter Chocolate
Erik - Anything Chocolate. He even enjoys chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast
Holly - Chocolate, Hard Candy, or bubble gum (still has yet to blow her first bubble)
Peter - Lately, with Christine's baking, he's been saying 'Cookie' quote often.

Does anyone know who did the graphic art for our cruise date?

I would love to make some t-shirts for our girls to get as a gift at the airport as part of their surprise.

I am hoping to make the t-shirts along with their DCL specific journal in a package already for them to have once they get to the airport.

I think the one posted has the wrong port on it also.

Saturday - Taken
Sunday - Available
Monday - Available
Tuesday - Available
Wednesday - Taken

I've PM'ed but not heard back as we want to participate? Is there a specific day for us - or can we distribute on any day? Is there an update to the FE's and how many we need?

Thanks!!!!

Hmmm--you may want to PM again. She sent out a list to me last week with everyone's info with a note that an updates list would come in a month. Maybe she missed seeing yours. I am sure it will get worked out

Getting Together?

Personally, after talking to some of you for more than a year by now, I'd like to put a face to the names of some of the people on this thread.

Anybody (meaning the experienced DIS'rs) know how we'll all meet up? There will be a lot of busy-ness at the start of the cruise and we all want to be with our kids at various points on our first evening.

Not knowing how it all goes, I'd make a rookie recommendation of sometime on Sunday afternoon since we're all on a day at sea. Rockin Bar D may be a location, but the kids can't go. Any recommended rendezvous point/time?

Tower--Rockin' Bar D is open to all ages during the day time. Also, there is a good chacne there will end up being a scheduled activity in wherever you pick at the time you pick (in Beat Street) as sea days are jam packed. On other cruieses the group has decided to meet generally on embarkation day sometime before the sailaway party--as there is not much in the way of scheduled activites going on then. Another option (which we have seen done in addition to the first day meet) is to plan to all meet at Lumieres on Sunday morning for breakfast. People PM one person to say they plan on comming so we have an aproximate idea how many and then that person goes a bit early and tells the staff what is going on and asks to all be seated in one area together. Plan it early enough that Palo brunch eaters can still have time to stop by and have some juice. We have also often chipped in and all gotten our own custom lanyards with DIS nametags which are great for identifying people. See lanyards below in the photo of our family on the TA (Marika is missing--she took the photo). These are awesome--but a lot of work to collect all the info and print and cut the names tags and distribute (when I cruise with my best friend he and I usually team up to do this--no way could I do it alone just from the standpoint of being on the wrong side of the Atlantic for shipping lol).

Hadley, you always have such good insight!

I like that Lumieres breakfast idea and the lanyards idea. I just have zero time to organize such a project as the lanyards, but I'd be willing to chip in!
Any volunteers for that?

Welcome Colorado Girl! Going to be a great cruise! I love Colorado too! Fell in love with Denver when I was out there visiting TV stations to audit. Would love to return.

So, you're traveling with friends from Canada Eh? Well we're from near Toronto, Canada. Not that we'd know your friends, but stranger coincidences have happened. Looking forward to spending time with more Canucks too! I know of only one other Canadian family so far, and they're out on the Canadian East Coast near Halifax.

Read some of the posts on here, and check out the questions of the week. Let us know more about yourself, without giving out too much personal info as this board is pretty public.

Sorry that I have been MIA, life has just gotten in the way of planning for this cruise.

I did not save the the mickey to my computer so I will have to redesign it, I promise to have it done by the end of the month, unless you all would not mind if I just cross it out and add in Tortola.

For any new-bies that want to sign up for the FE just PM your info and you are welcome to deliver on any day.

lanyards and meeting

While I have never organized lanyards (totally newbie here), I am an 'organizer' by nature, so if someone experienced (ie Hadley) is willing to help me, I'm happy to take the lead on the lanyards.

Also, I love the idea of Breakfast at Lumiere's Sunday.

I'm up for that too by the way, just not sure if I can convince DW as she will want to orient herself with the ship and the activities as well as unpacking. Nonetheless, I won't be too hard to spot as I'm generally the same height/shape as Dave (ok, a little more round in the tummy) so we'll make a nice set of bookends.

I know I'll be at Rockin' Bar D as soon as we board as I will still try for an afternoon tea for 3 sometime. Maybe some of us will meet in line! We'll have a beer standing there.

Wonderful Amy! I did a little light research and there are several lanyard companies online. The earlier you order the better for the best prices. Based on Hadley's numbers on her roll call post, we'll need at least 85 and I think a total of 100 should be ordered.
