I was looking at a towncar. It was showing @$90 for the one way trip. If that is for both wife and I doesn't sound too bad. But are there hidden cost? Im sure a taxi would be $$$$$$$$.........

Any more info would be greatly appreciated for this rookie taking a giant first cruise step on a B2B!
Transferring luggage with Supershuttle is easy. Your luggage is going on the same van as you are. The pick up for Supershuttle at LAX is right outside baggage claim and they drop you as close to the hotel door as they can get you.

Thanks Corinna. Guess we were just a little worried about carrying four large bags and carry-ons to get on Supershuttle. Sounds like they have room for the cargo so I guess we will rent one of those little buggies and haul our stuff their way.

Did the Wonder repo on its first run to Alaska. Had the time of my life. We took the Super shuttle from LAX and it was a piece of cake. Got to LAX very early and had to wait maybe 3 hours before boarding. Mentioned to the driver that we needed to eat and he was happy to stop at the Mc Donald's on the way. We bought him an orange juice and a little extra tip. Shuttle was right on time, it was pulling up as soon we walked out the door. Wish I was going on that repo again. Be sure to see Alcatraz in San Fran. Skip Saulsalito.

We got ours a couple of weeks ago! Maybe they thought the mail would be on a slow boat to the Islands?? Feels like it is getting closer now! Aloha, Karen and Ron

I doubt we will get one this time round. Before our Galveston cruise, they sent us one for a family going on the December Panama Canal cruise and I had a bit of a go at them for a serious breach of Data Protection. Since then I have had nothing in the post from them apart from my cruise documents for our cruise last November.

My sister and I are joining you guys! We have two connecting cabins, she is bringing both of her children (ages 6 & 4) and I am bringing 2 of my 6 (ages 3 & 7). My DH is taking our older boys on a Europe cruise so I thought I'd take the younger ones on this one, and then my sister decided to join us! I completed the form for FE. I organized them during our 2008 WB Panama Canal cruise so thank you to whoever is taking that on!! Does anyone know the order of the shows (which night is Golden Mickeys, etc)? Looking forward to having some fun very soon!

Welcome on board. This looks like quite a small Fish Extender Exchange. I need to post another update about the numbers involved.

The planner in me wants to know if I have this right:
20-May Los Angeles / Casual
21-May At Sea / Formal / Golden Mickeys
22-May San Francisco / Casual
23-May San Francisco / Casual
24-May At Sea / Casual / Pirate night
25-May At Sea / Semi-Formal (Lobster) / Toy Story the Musical
26-May Victoria / Casual / Disney Dreams -An Enchanted Classic, Until We Meet Again farewell.
27-May Vancouver
I haven't been able to find any Navigators online for this itinerary, so have been trying to compile the information that's been posted here.

Can you put us (Julie & Lisa - 2 cabins on deck 7) down for day 2? We are from San Francisco so we will do a SF theme FE gift. Also, we are from SF so feel free to ask away any questions, and if I can help out at all with reservations just let me know. By the way, there is a Giants day game while we are in port. We probably will pass since we can go anytime (unless we think we can get a big group??? I could see about group tickets, that could be fun!)

I almost agree, but I think Pirates Night will be on May 23rd. With one exception on all my cruises Pirate Night was on a port day. I think the only exception was our Hawaii cruise.

There are no assigned days for this. You can deliver whenever it is convenient for you. As long as you have dropped off your gifts by 4:00 PM on the last full day, it is all good.

Since you asked... We want to go to Muir Woods one of the days we are in SF. We are trying to decided between doing a disney tour (cons would be cost and not enough time there and we'd like to stop at GGB for photos), renting a car, or using a local tour operation on our own. There are 7 of us (4 adults, a teen, a tween, and a preschooler). I have found 2 different local tour operations that seem to have semi-customizable trips to Muir Woods. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions on this. Thanks.

Glad you're bringing more kids too.
