Wow, so you've paid more then us to come all across the Atlantic!

Although you are a American and live in Hawaii so I would swap places with you in a FLASH!

Mandygirl, I've just checked the PJ breakfast responses form and saw you had answered twice - I will update the new thread to show who has signed up so others don't forget. I saw Sarah had done something similar on her placeholder

We have 53 for the PJ breakfast! :D

Thanks! That's where our placeholders will really come in helpful. When we've had something out there for months to sign up, people (like me) forget if they have signed up and try to make sure it's done. I think I might have even put a note on that one? Can't recall but at least remember thinking it to myself... hmmmmm.... have I already signed up?

Just a reminder....

Tremont House --- Group Rate for pre-cruise hotel

If you would like to join in the group rate we have secured for the Tremont, which is a Wyndham Grand Property located in the Strand (historic) area across from the harbor, please send MandyGirl a PM to obtain the group code and how to book the rate directly with the property. The rates we have secured for a King or Two Queens, up to 4 adults, is $159 (Friday night) or $135 (Wed/Thurs nights). We have a limited number of these rooms, and once your reservation is made it is not cancelable. According to the Tremont's website, the rooms are about 350 square feet (King) and 500 square feet (Two Queens). Many are renting a one-way car rental from Enterprise and returning the car after checking into the hotel in Galveston to avoid parking fees overnight. (Currently, Enterprise is the only car rental option in Galveston.) The Tremont does provide a complimentary local shuttle according to their website and is walking distance to several fine restaurants in the Strand and Harbor areas. Breakfast is not included in this rate -- just save your hungers for lunch onboard!!

Just a reminder...

Event Organizers --

Please try to update your Part Two Thread placeholder over the weekend. It looks like we will most likely hit 250 pages by end of next week so we will need to transition. This is a great place to make a listing of those who are signed up for each event / tour / dinner / etc

Quite honestly, I've seen worse here on the DIS (and I am not talking about this group) - at least on FB you can hide someone's posts if you don't want to see what they have to say

Yes to be fair it's an internet wide thing not just FB. I think it's worst on FB sometimes because it's people you know lol!

That's funny, because I think just the opposite - it's easier to be rude to ppl you don't know - and like I said, get rude too often and I'll just un-friend ya! LOL! Or, in a group, just hide your posts....
