Did they say why?

You can get to the baths by yourself - cheaper than DCL - that is what we are considering.

That's a shame. I wonder why?

I did a tiny bit of research and came across this. I think you have to take a ferry from Tortola to Virgin Gorda.

I thought, for everyone's benefit I would do a recap of the events that have been planned as part of this cruise by folks on this thread.

DIS Dinner and Meet-up at Fishlips Restaurant, Sept 11, Night Before the Cruise Let the fun start early, the night before the cruise with a DIS dinner meet-up at Fishlips Restaurant. RSVP and your party will be added to the list. It will help with getting an accurate count so that a table or tables can be booked. For more information about Fishlips Restaurant click here.


Champagne Girls Tentatively scheduled for Sunday, September 13th, 2:00 p.m. at Diversions. This event is a champagne tasting.....we'll sample different champagnes ranging from dry to sweet and learn something about each of them. We would like everyone to wear PINK. Pink tiaras and boas will be provided. We will take a group picture. Our mascott is Sassy Bubbles and she will be dressed like a pink tink.....aka....Cheri. It's not necessary for everyone to drink champagne. We have tasters.....they will sample the champagnes. We have sippers....they will only have a little. We have non champagne drinkers....they can order whatever they want. There will be an additional charge to participate, but it will be minimal....usually $10 for tasters and $5 for sippers....no charge for non champagne drinkers. We'll try to keep it in this price range. Pictures will be available at Shutters for purchase separately. Deb will need to know the size of the group so that she can make appropriate plans with DCL and have sufficient champagne.


Shot's Around the Ship will take place on Sunday night, September 13th, at about 10-ish PM. You can drink whatever you want, water, soda, or rot-gut. When we're ready, as a group, we'll move on to another bar on the ship. It is meant to be just a relaxed way for folks to get together and chat. Many of my friends on this cruise, I first met at Shots Around the Ship on another cruise. The count of respondents will provide information to make sure that DCL has our first venue staffed appropriately for the size of the gathering.


Fish Extenders. This is a little gift exchange, and it can be a lot of fun and full of surprises. A count of cabins and people will be needed in advance, so that the exchange can be organized, goodies purchased, etc.


Walking on Water is meant to be a way to keep active on board ship. I am planning on going for a long walk everyday and invite others to join me. I will be asking a bit more below, so I can get a better idea of what folks are looking for. This is the first time I've planned this sort of activity.

To express an interest in participating in any of the above click here. Your interest will be shared with the appropriate organizer. This particular survey will close at midnight on July 12th.


If you are interested in Lanyards, please send a PM to Monica at mishoe01

Hi Jennifer, I was just going to send you a pm but see you already found out the sad news This was the excursion I booked too, and was really looking forward to it! I was checking on line last night after work just in case a Palo brunch became available (it didn't ) and noticed that my Baths excursion was gone, and no longer available to book. I called DCL and they said the company providing this excursion to DCL had cancelled with them. Not sure this is true, but it's what they told me. Last night the only other excursion going there, the tour to Virgin Gorda was completely booked. I tried to get them to sqeeze just one more in (me!) but they couldn't and wouldn't put me on a waiting list either. Someone was supposed to call me back today but they didn't. I was at work all day but I do have call display...no calls! Anyway, I just went on their site and the Virgin Gorda tour is available again, so if anyone's interested in that one I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too. I wonder if they've added a second tour or if someone just happened to cancel? Does anyone have a starting time other than 7:45? I thought about doing this on my own too, but since I'm travelling solo it really would be on my own and I'm just not quite that brave

Wow Ian....that's a perfect synopsis of our cruise activities. Thank you so much for putting it together for us. This really is going to be a fun trip. I can't wait to meet and re-meet everyone. Sunday is going to be my favorite day.....Champagne Girls and Shots Around The Ship....with plenty of time to nap in between....hahaha. I can't wait.

You're welcome to go on the land and sea tour with us. Not quite as exciting as the Baths, but you know what an old-fogie Sukie can be. However, I promise that we can provide, supplemental (and amusing) commentary.

Thanks so much for the offer Ian I would take you up on it too, but I did manage to book the Virgin Gorda excursion that became available today. It will be shorter than what I had, but at least I'll get to see the Baths. I don't know how long your tour is,but mine is back fairly early, so I'm planning on walking around town in the afternoon...if you and Sukie or anyone else wants to join me I'd love the company, and commentary

We're on the 8:15am land and sea tour. Which one are you and Sukie on?
