Great pre-trip report! It sounds like they have it sorted better now for getting on... at least at Galveston. We were in the cruise terminal forever when we sailed on the Dream out of Florida.

Meets on the ship

"Thanks to Gina for setting up the meets on the ship."

We have missed these! Where and when?

That's why you gotta check the awesome first page with all the helpful info Katie put there!

The first and main meet is 2pm on sailaway day, in the Promenade Lounge. Kid friendly, lots of room for all of us. And those who want to will still be able to get to the spa raffle at 3.

Then we'll have another little get-together the next day, probably late morning, just to say hi again and give anyone a chance who didn't get onboard early to meet everyone. I'm just waiting for the new Navigators to see what's going on at that time. That meet will probably be adult-only, and near Signals by the adult pool and Cove Cafe. Will keep everyone posted!

This whole group is so much fun... I just can't wait to meet everyone. And I can't wait for the new Navigators, so I can put together one more meet that first sea day!

Definitely thanks to Beth for organizing the FEE. I heard from the lady making ours today and it should be ready by Friday. Yippee!

I'm waiting on the navigators too. I want to set up a play date for the littles at the splash pad. (And anyone else who wants to hang out poolside of course!)

Thank you to everyone who has help organize things. I can't wait for our cruise! I was talking to a friend who is doing the 4 day cruise out of Port Canaveral her FE group has 70 people and they didn't split it!! YIKES! I think I would have a heart attack if our group was that big. I would need a separate suitcase just for FE gifts.

Was thinking of a way for everyone to identify each other (Disboarders). On a past cruise we all put something lime green on our carry on bags (ribbon, Mickey head, etc) anyone interested? Just a thought so we can pick each other out from the crowd when we are waiting to board or walking around the ship before our meet and greet.

One group we were in had lime green Mickey head paint samples from Home Depot. Another made custom embossed green bracelets. My paper cutter can make lime green Mickey heads if anyone wants them.

I always have lime green something on me and/or my carry-ons... Usually ribbons. Hope to spot others!!

Gah! My fault. Pretty obvious oversight there, huh?

All fixed now. Plus I added the bit about having something lime green to be recognizable. Look at me being all organized today!
