For the FE, I know that some people have already finished making their gifts and that the list was officially "closed" on the last payoff date. I am not sure what the policy would be to adding more people.

Glad you have joined the group. Looking forward to a wonderful vacation!!!
Thanks... I thought I may have been too late... I would still like to try and get on to the list, we wouldn't want anything in return, would just like to be able to give little gifts and see what it is all about...
Can't wait!!!! Thanks so much for the info!

aboard the Father's Day Eastern Fantasy. Sorry but the FE was closed at 75 days before this cruise. If you want you can try to ask the group to let you in at this late date but do not get your hopes up. Most participants have finished their gifts and getting ready to ship them. To request to be added to the FE I would post on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/404340172928258/ . The FB page is very active now with only 18 days to the cruise. If you have any other questions regarding the cruise please do not hestitate to ask.

Just popping in here as I seem to do most of my posting on the FB group. We're excited about our upcoming cruise. We've had a busy month of recitals, talent shows, pre-k graduation, end of the year parties and taekwondo belt tests. Hopefully things settle down for us soon. Normally I'm a total planner but I haven't planned much for this cruise mostly because I've been waiting on DHs input and he tends to do things last minute!

Hello fellow DISers! It has been a while since I last posted, but I have a couple of questions about St. Maarten and St. Thomas. We decided to not sign up for any excursions. The last time we were in St. Maarten we had to take a boat to get to the "downtown" area...I think we paid a small fee and it was good for a roundtrip ticket. Is that going to be the case for this sailing? We also had seen a beach with chairs when we got off the taxi-boat. Does anyone know if this is a free beach or is there a charge to use the beach and beach chairs? We just wanted to make St. Maarten a beach day and not have to pay a whole lot for an excursion. Also, does anyone know where we will be docking in St. Thomas? The last time I was there we tendered so I am not sure how far the shopping area is to where we will be docking. Any help would be great! My family and I are so excited to be finally going on the Fantasy. We heard it is a beautiful ship and can't wait to see it!

For St Maarten the beach near the dock is Great Bay beach. There still is a water taxi which you can take over to the beach. The beach is free but if you want chairs and umbrellas you will have to negotiate with the local vendors. I think we spent $20 for a couple of chairs and umbrella and some waters. The town of Phillipsburg is right behind the beach so you can do some shopping as well.
For St Thomas will be docking at Havensight. There is a small shopping mall next to the dock. The true shopping is in Charlotte Amelia which is a taxi ride away. There are plenty of taxis you can take over and back. Traffic in St Thomas can be tough so do not wait until the last second to return to the Fantasy.

Thanks for the info! I think we are definitely going to be checking out Great Bay beach when we get to St Maarten. We are still debating about what we are going to do in St Thomas...maybe we will just do some shopping in the small shopping mall and then head back to the ship since we aren't going to be in port that long...do you think that would be a good day to try and ride the AquaDuck? We are getting super excited! Only 13 more days!

Sorry if this has already been asked

Do you think they will show the new Monster's University a little earlier than the last night of our cruise?

From what I heard, it will be shown at 12:01 a.m. or so on Friday. Late night before Castaway Cay day if you stay up for it, but I expect it will also be shown in the theater at other times on Friday.

If I am incorrect, someone please correct me, I have been known to mix up my information!

Late Joiner

Hello-

I just found this forum, disappointingly late, but wondered if we could join you all for the meet and greet. We have a group of 12 - five families - 4 children. I just asked to join the Facebook page too. We are very excited, three of us have cruised before but it is a first for the rest of the family. We are all big Disney fans!
