Are we excited yet guys? 93 days!

Wanted to throw this out to anyone in case you're interested; At Grand Cayman I'm planning on going snorkeling with my son, however not on an excursion. There is a place called Sunset that is about 3/4 a mile away from the port that will let you put in for free. You can rent Snorkel, mask and fins there for $10. They have a small "sea pool" where you can swim around before you head out into the ocean. Apparently you can also get a map that will show you the different under water attractions. I can try to provide more information if you'd like.

Just want to point out that this is more of an adventure than anything. I'm semi-experienced at snorkeling but not a pro by any means so ... again Adventure! Let me know if you're interested in joining us and we'll come up with a meet spot/time when we're at GC.

This is where I asked about it:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3131822

The guy who responded seemed to know what he was talking about. I looked up the facility and it looks really nice with the ocean pool being a good spot to "get your feet wet"

I'm not opposed to Eden rock but he said (and I've heard) it gets kind of crowded. That may be a good or bad thing If other people want to do this and the majority decides they want to go there, I'm down for it.

I followed up on Facebook but thought I'd mention it here. I checked with Sunset and their day rental includes Mask, Snorkel, Fins (MSF) and a vest. I know there was some concern about getting the vests. The MSF package is $10 for the day. They said the location is close to a mile away from the tender port and I'm planning on walking so if you're not comfortable walking that distance I'd imagine you could grab a cab. Either way, let me know!

I'm inviting everyone to join us in a meet & greet on boarding day.
Time: 3pm
Where: When you board the ship you'll be in the main lobby. Straight head of you there should be an area where we could mingle for a bit. On our NYE cruise there was a huge gingerbread house there so in the case there is a display we can move behind the stairs, there is an area there.

On the FB page there is a event added I know some of you don't use FB no worries! You don't need to do a thing but show up and introduce yourselves! I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

Please let me know if this is something you would like to participate in with us, I think we are planning for the 2nd sea day.

Just send me your names (of those participating) and your stateroom number
I sent info on Facebook. Hope you got it?

Just so everyone knows, DCL won't confirm a time until 30 days out. My first choice is October 3rd (2nd sea day) at 2 pm. Really hoping we get that time We are up to 34 so far and DCL says there is a max of 45 so we only have room for about 9 more!

This will depend on if we go. You have us on your list already but if it conflicts with other plans we will have to cancel.
