Thanks
We are on the wait list for early dining too......I think after paid in full date there is a chance to get moved to early dining with people canceling.

We did early dining on our first cruise and my DH insisted that we tried late on our Med cruise. I didn't like it at all. I am so happy that we got early this time :-)
I hope that you get it as well!

Champagne Girls is a superfun meet & greet! Ladies only, we all wear pink, pink, pink! Pink feather boas, pink tiaras, pink from head to toe - go for it!

I am posting this again as some of the ladies have changed.

Champagne Girls

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For our Champagne Girls..we are doing the DCL sponsored event..
It is $30 per person and includes many drinks of champagne! We wear pink, have pink boas, tiaras, pink shirts, pink blouses, pink dresses, pink hair or anything pink. Great fun..lots of chatting, pictures of all and lots of fun.

DCL will charge your room based on the reservation number. For those that want to chat and not drink champagne, just let me know that you are coming for the picture only. DCL need 20 - 50 people max for this event.

If we don't get the number needed, what else can be done??
Off the top of my head, we can wear pink and meet at the Promenade lounge (or whatever they are calling it once the ship is reimagined), chat, have pink ladies fun and buy drinks from the bar or bring Champagne that each of us brought and get glasses from the bar.
We can still get a picture, and those ladies that don't want champagne can be included.
Other options?

On the EBTA 2013, we had Champagne Girls and Cabana boys..the men served the ladies champagne and had fun, pictures, chatting, lot of fun.It was held in Sessions. Then we went on the pub crawl, lots of fun and Emily ended up in the pool.

I will post this also on the FB page, but how is the FE list going? I haven't checked it lately, but are there any plans to break it down, keep it whole?? I don't mind either way, but have been trying to think of FE gifts, I have no "crafty" gene in my body so this tends to get hard for me. Any help for the "craftless" girl............let me know

That was so funny can we request that all "girls" are made to either jump in the pool or walk the plank, I would pay good money for that, it was nice to see the ladies having fun though, strangley they didn't all make it to dinner and some of the bruises "ouch" poor Emily!

We sailed the week after on the first med sailing and the champagne girls were infamous, we heard all about the pool incident

I haven't got a clue what the plan is, I would be happy to have it split and give people the option of doing everyone if they want?? Can't remember who is organising the FE but sure they will have an idea of how they want it.

I was never craft until we did our FE and I really got into it, I am a bit bummed I won't be able to do the same stuff as last time due to the luggage allowance but am going to start working on something soon so it's not a rush

It's a way to explore the ship. I'm organizing the event and am planning on putting people into teams of 2-4 people and give them a list of things to find. Sometimes it will be a bring back an item (like maybe a napkin with the DCL logo), sometimes it will be write down the location of a item, sometimes it will be take a digital picture of an item. I do plan to have PRIZES for the 1st and 2nd place teams.

I think it may be fun to put people on to teams with other DIS board members as a way to get to know each other better. What do you guys think?

Hi all. We are fresh of the last Med cruise and my son is aching to cruise again. He is actually getting a job himself to take him and me! He wants to be in the Vibe most of the time!

I did the scavenger hunt on the Panama cruise and it was great fun!

We had to take pictures at each stop with one or more of the team to prove we were there. Count me in!

No wonder he wants to be in the Vibe the whole time, last week on the our Med cruise, he constantly had a harem following him around the decks, he is such a handsome young man, the girls were flocking round him

Glad to have you onboard

Welcome all new cruisers seems we have a few people who have dropped out too

It would have been nice to meet you all. It remains to be seen whether we will keep the WBTA 2014.

Have a lovely cruise, and eat lots of Mickey Bars and Cove Cafe chocolate eclairs for me
Same for us. We haven't actually cancelled this cruise, but it's highly unlikely we'll be on it. I hate to give up that 20% discount but it's just not in the cards for us this time.

Enjoy everyone!
