I just looked at a recent 3 day navigator and there is a DVC member celebration from 2:30 to 3:30. I guess we could do a short dismeet right before that at 2:00 so those that want to attend can go at 2:30. The lifeboat drill starts at 4:00. That would at least give us a little time to meet and greet and give out lanyards and name badges.

Earned his ears, now wants yours
Slept with 500 or so passports
Stumbling will probably be my primary mode of transportation by then

Can do both.

For those who arrive early at the port, there's little to do other than meet while waiting for boarding to start. We can pick a place at the port to start getting acquainted, then meet again at a time that works for everyone.

The T-Shirts make for good identifiers.

Indeed - it's first cruise for all of them, and I'm sure meeting some girls right off will not only make the trip more fun, but pretty much guarantee that I only see them at the evening show and dinner (and that probably only under protest), leaving plenty of time to lie out on deck and relax, read and down numerous chocolate smoothies

Hi Leslie

We booked the 10:00am tour. Should be a fun time! Those tour operators won't know what hit them!

Thanks again to all who have welcomed us!

We'd be in for a meet at 2pm (we'd be wanting to go to the DVC member 'do' as well). Think we'll be planning to get to the terminal at 10am (driving) so we'll keep a look out for the t-shirts!

I've been showing the fish extender thread to the rest of team karriemouse (to quote DH - okaaaay, what's a fish and why does it need extending????) and both DDs are very keen to do this - is this something that is planned and if so please can we play?!

I'm still debating Nassau - first cruise, so little time, so much to do - leaning at present towards just getting off to explore a bit by ourselves and then spending most of the day on the ship. We can always re-book can't we!!

T Shirts?

Good Morning!

I missed out on the t-shirt topic. Is there a color or design our DIS group is wearing to identify us? Please catch me up.

While catching up----has anyone started a list of people who would like to do a magnet exchange? If not and others would like to participate, I'll handle the list for us.

Hi Barb

This is something I worked up. $1.00 from each shirt goes to support the Arthritis Foundation ride I do each year.

Anyone who wants to setup an activity - that would be great! The more lists, the better.

Barb, I like this idea, too. We can schedule an informal meet for the terminal at about 12:00 until boarding. Then, onboard we can do a formal meet at 3:00 pm.


What say you all?

I must have missed this. But I think that this is great, combined with Dan's idea.

WELCOME OCEAN ANGEL!!!
This will be a FUN cruise!

WOW a DVC Celebration the day of boarding? They are putting the squeeze on early this cruise!

HAPPY MONDAY TO ALL!

Ken... as far as the FE gifts, etc. If we just key off of your main lanyard list there won't be a need for anyone to create a separate one. Those who want to "leave something" on the FE will be free to do so or... not.

Did you get a lot of biking in while Shari was visiting the Mouse Manor???
