Best wishes, you're looking at it the right way........

After talking to my DH, we've decided to go with the Kuralu day sail trip to Jost Van ****. The price is about $90pp give or take $10, I'm still working on this one. I've asked if we should just make one stop to White Bay Beach (home of Soggy Dollar Bar and a beautiful beach) or if we could also go to Great Bay. They're getting back to me tonight. I think it includes transportation, soft drinks, beer and lunch (I have to double check on that but I should know tonight.) I know some of us expressed interest but that was back when we were talking about the Baths. I'll have more info tonight but please PM me if you're interested b/c there's only 20 people maximum.

We've also decided to go St. John for the day to snorkel. It will cost between $50 - $70 to include ferry shuttle to St. John, snorkel equipment and snorkeling on the north side of the island. This one has a maximum of 28 people for two boats, about 14 each and includes only soft drinks and beer.

If anyone is interested in either of these trips please PM me with a total number of people and whether or not you need snorkel equipment for the St. John trip. I will share more info as I get it.
In case you missed this earlier today..................

Thanks, Virgil. But I gotta say I'm stumped by the "PD" thing. In our State Department world, that means Public Diplomacy, and I can't quite get that out of my head to consider what else it might mean. Can I get a little help?

I'm not sure about 'expert'... maybe novice


QUESTION FOR PEOPLE HOW BOUGHT SHIRTS:

Has anyone gotten the shirts with dates from cafe press? Do they actually have a gray box around them in person or is that just a glitch in the pictures online? I cant figure out why that one has it and the other one doesnt.

Shirt without date

I'm having a senior moment and can't remember but I'm pretty sure they didn't have a box. Can check when I get home from work. If I remember

The grey box - I believe is only on dark shirts....

Well, since we upgraded and added a person yesterday with the florida rates, yesterday we had a GTY room, this afternoon the GTY changed to room 6088.

Did some research, overall, this seems to be a nice room to be in.

Noahsmom, was someone in your group in one of your cruises in this room?

We are 6 doors down from StarWood

I'm trying to decide what to do about trip insurance. For our first 2 cruise we used what Disney offered. It wasn't until the end of the last trip that I realized due to preexisting conditions my mom and I would not be covered. I'm not really worried about covering this trip since we booked with points all we would be losing is the 95 dollar fee no insurance is going to cover the points. I am concerned about next summer as I'm not going to Europe w/out insurance. I've got health insurance that covers me where ever i go nobody else in my family does though. Any suggestion about where to find trip insurance?
