I've been to Trunk Bay twice. I've never been to Honeymoon or Cinnamon Bay.

We were going to try and head over to Trunk Bay on our own because Grace is too young for DCL's tour. Wanna share a cab/ferry?

Jeez - it's not like you're sitting around at work twiddling your thumbs - you're taking care of our astronauts!!! Notice how I've never told you exactly where I live - you're risking your life if you stop by unannounced. Chasing after the kids is a great excuse for the condition of the house and the yard I hate cleaning and yard work - so, those will always get a low priority!

I know a 14 year old boy who is perfect for outdoor slave labor like lawn mowing around the yard

Hi Susan......Same thing here, we've been to St. Thomas a few times and I thought the kids would really enjoy Trunk Bay. I'm doing the excursion through DCL because traveling without DH I just don't want to deal with possible problems. If you decide on Trunk Bay and we are there at the same time, I'll hang out with you while my two snorkel. it will be fun.

That is crazy that they don't allow children under 5. I guess the boat operators are the ones that determine that. We booked the excursion through DCL maybe we'll see you there.

We are on the 8:15 departure for Trunk Bay. Is yours the same? Would love the company.

I think I'd take the snow over that. I'm guessing you get used to it.

Sort of. In Dec and Jan, the nights drop down into the high 60s. In the morning when it's only up to the high 70s the girls won't go outside without a sweater. The locals are wearing parkas, scarves and knit caps. Seriously.

What a coincidence! Isn't it a good thing we'll be sailing in LESS THAN 3 MONTHS!!!!!!

Thank you Nancy for updating the names.

Snow or 97 degrees??? What a choice!

Forgot to mention that we reserved High Tea for the first Sea Day and Palo for the last Sea Day. We also made a Brunch ressie for the last Sea Day, but they will probably cancel it when our Group Brunch goes through. Just wish we knew what day it would be.

Here's what we have reserved so far:

Saturday -
- Board early
- Get additional Flounders time
- lunch at Parrot Cay
- tour spa (maybe win a prize!!!)
- kids swim
- get settled

Sunday, Monday - no reservations
- we want to do some of the tastings but will need Flounders for those and we ran out of hours.
- we also thought that maybe one of these days would be our Palo group brunch
- And we want to make sure the kids are acclimated to the clubs and we get to know the ship, etc.
- Castaway Club meet & greet
- Isn't our cruise meet one of these days at 10am?

Tuesday -
- Dolphin encounter - we are still debating whether to try and do this on our own or with DCL. We made the ressies with DCL and got e-mail confirmation that DD2 can stay in Flounders. But the vendor said we could take her with us - so we're still debating.

Wednesday -
- We are going to head to Trunk Bay on our own unless something better opens up - but DCLs age restrictions are a problem for DD2.
- Palo dinner

Thursday -
- Palo Brunch (although this will probably be cancelled when our group brunch goes through. I too wish I knew when this would be.)
- Galley tour

Friday -
- Serenity Bay morning

Saturday -
- Sadly leave the best vacation ever!

Dang! I just remembered we could now book our flight seat assignments. We had no issues however our niece and her 2 kids are going to WDW with us. They are going to have problems. The flight from Milwaukee to Memphis is no problem but Memphis to Orlando is. We took the last 3 seats together and they are the very last row on the plane. We would split up so she can be with her kids if we need to but what a pain. I'm not a fan of Northwest but our preferred airline, Midwest, quit flying to Orlando last year when fuel prices went up. Now, of course, they are going there again but we got tickets on NW instead.
