There is 2!!! You need to go to the Fe page. The page that initially comes up is a roll call page. On the left, click on Fe!!

Makes a great memento of the trip afterwards! I'm helping her get the list together, so if you want to be included, we need to know: 1. Your name 2. Your disname 3. The number of bracelets -- both YOUTH sized and ADULT sized. DEADLINE is next MONDAY, November 11th. Just ask if you have any questions. I will be posting this on the Facebook page too. You don't have to respond to both -- one or the other. BUT with all the changes/adds/cancellations that have happened since April (when this was first discussed), I'm going to ask that if you mentioned interest back then, that you give me the info again now. Thanks!! Almost down to the 5 week mark!!!
Sign us up for two adult and two kid bracelets!

Getting closer!!!!!
Hello Robin ( and all my other cruisers)
I am sorry I have been away for so long. ( illness... to long to explain ..)

No more facebook account, but my husband ( Graham Silliman) is a member I believe.

I wrote to my Disney rep earlier this week, waiting to hear from her but I am sure we are set, I confirmed last May, wow that seems forever ago!

I will need everyone's full name and stateroom who is attending, as Disney treats this as a 'tasting', where your ticket is charged directly to your room, so I will provide them a full list prior to boarding. I will deliver confirmation cards to your staterooms the day we sail. Please private message me your name and stateroom with your DIS name so I can compile a roster.

I am super excited about seeing everyone there, it's going to be a blast !!
( Graham still thinks an equal "Macho Mustache Bourbon and Cigar" party should be planned for the husbands ..is only fair, he says, but that's not my gig


Everyone got something PINK to pack ?!??!??!

I need a bit of advice from previous St. Marteen vacationers ... (ahem, Larry)

I really want to go to Moho beach and so does Graham. My mom wants to go but she insists on traveling away from the ship on DISNEY SANCTIONED EXCURSIONS only.
She and I witnessed another cruise line leave a woman and child behind on an island, and she fears this worse than the zombie apocalypse. Can you give me any pearls of wisdom or reassurance to ease her mind and get her on board for this awesome opportunity ????

Can FE gifts be edible ? Like home made candy ? I was reading questions on the Disney Cruise website, says that no foods can be brought on board ...

we have to cancel our cruise.

fFirst thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers. Suddenly laura's lungrsened very quickly and we lost her friday night.

We will make a cruise someday and maybe meet some of you then, not this year. We had signed up for everthing so hope this causes few problems for the group. If someone still needs a christmas ornament to join the exchange i would love yo donate one. Maybe this would let someone join who couldn't otherwise. Just let me know if anyone is interested.


Have a wonderful trip and smooth sailings.

I'm terribly sorry for your loss. I know it is an extremely hard time for everyone. My thoughts are with you all at this time and I pray that good memories of Laura exceed the pain as soon as possible.

I certainly understand the concern about possibly being left behind. I have the same fear and always plan to be back to the ship at least an hour early to make sure I never risk seeing how beautiful the Fantasy is as she sails from the port without me.
That said, I want to experience the ports we visit and have the option to chose activities that I know I will enjoy, even if they are not offered by the cruise line. When we visit St. Maarten, our current onboard time is 6:45 pm, the latest onboard time of any port we visit. In fact, the onboard time is an hour after sunset. I have scheduled an afternoon tour that returns me to the ship at 5:00 pm. If, by chance, the tour operator has problems, there is more than an extra hour and a half to make sure I get back to the ship before it sails. The daily cruise ships are a major source of income for all tour operators on St Maarten. They would not risk their reputations by making passengers late for departure.
As for going on your own to Maho Beach, I would think you would want to visit there in the morning to mid afternoon. You should check the flight schedules if the planes are your main attraction to the beach. The beach is only 5 or 6 miles from the dock, a $2 bus ride, and visitors say it generally takes about 25 minutes for the drive. However, at times on St Maarten, the traffic can slow to a real crawl and that drive can take an hour. If it were me, I would plan to leave the beach no later than 4:00 pm. That way there is no risk of missing the ship and I would be back in time to shower and dress for dinner or the show. You could adjust your departure time even earlier from the beach to accommodate mom's comfort level. Perhaps you could visit the beach early, and then spend the late afternoon shopping or another activity within walking distance of the ship? Finally, check your Navigator the evening before and you will find a listing for the ships agent in Phillipsburg. If by any chance you are delayed returning to the ship you could phone to let them know of your situation.
If you have the unfortunate experience of encountering the zombie apocalypse as you attempt to return to the ship, you are on your own...

So incredibly saddened to hear this, Cynthia. Please know we will be praying for your family at this horribly difficult time.
Blessings to you all,
Beth
