You could always start with the 5K and keep going! I understand that we will get off the ship earlier if we are signed up for the 5K. I am still having knee issues, but Scott might be up for continuing on after the 5K - I think you walk about the speed that he runs! Actually, I think he plans to have the additional milage done before we get off the ship! We have heard good things about the RnR races, and I think we have some friends doing the Virginia Beach one this year also.

Have a great day all!

We have talked a little about getting together for a pre-cruise meet at Disney World. We would be happy to host that at Old Key West Resort on Wednesday, Aug. 12 from 2 - 4 or 5. Some soft drinks (and maybe a few harders ones) and light snacks will be available. Name badges and lanyards will be available for pickup.

If you are interested, please RSVP via this thread or PM so I will have idea of how many might be attending.

I don't know our room number at Old Key West yet, but we arrive on August 8, so I will post it at that time.

Ken
We will also have a hard time getting to Old Key West during that time with the ADR's we have planned.

We look forward to meeting everyone in the terminal or once we board the ship though.

We'll be cruising soon!
Robin

Good Morning Cruisers!

I finally started packing, it seems to take so long - first deciding what to wear, then looking for those little things that you know you have - just can't put you finger on at the moment!

It was cool and raining most of the day yesterday, today looks cloudy but dry, and still cool. Yesterday's high was around 55, todays should be around 62.

Have a great day all!

Linda, if you are putting the list on the mini-navi, could you add them to the list? Thank you. I think that that mini-navi will make a great souvenir.

Oh, and looking at my friend's FE starting me thinking that we should a contest on the BEST FE. But, I haven't firgured out all of the logistics yet.

Any ideas?
I already did! Thanks for the update.

Good Morning Cruisers!

Is everyone ready for their cruise? I still am packing, need some input from Scott before packing for him. Still keep thinking of something else to add for me.

Have a great day all!

Packing this weekend!

I am alone for the next few days, so I can't wait to start laying out what we will be packing Its a lot easier to do when I can concentrate without interruption. Its becoming real now (and I am still hoping for no real storms at sea!)

I am also making our FE this weekend. Bought material last weekend and I am ready to go.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Hi everyone! I can't believe our cruise is less than two weeks away -- I haven't even booked a hotel for the night before yet! I better get cracking!

This is our first time participating in the FE exchange, and I have a couple of questions: Are most people giving one gift per person or one gift per cabin? Are we supposed to put our names on our gifts?

Thanks, and have a great weekend!

You will probably see both. We are just doing cabin gifts.

Names are up to you. Again, you will see some gifts with names and some without.

I was curious about this too as this is our first time participating in a FE as well.

We have decided on a cabin gift and when applicable a gift for the kid(s).

We will be cruising soon!
