Claire, you're plans sound fab, especially these (except for the snorkelling though )

Thanks Mandy. When do they announce your name? I have heard it mentioned on here before but wasn't sure exactly when they do it?

Once it's your time to board, Claire you walk through the Mickey Ears-shaped doorway in the terminal, have your KTTW card swiped, get your pic taken by the photographers and then walk onto the Wonder...

As you step aboard, a cast member asks your name and announces you with a microphone!!! And all the cast members (and other cruisers if they're like me) stand around clapping!!! It's so cool!!! And it gets me ever time...

Hey Claire, had you thought about renewing your vows on the Wonder??? I remember when we were docked in Nassau last year this was the backdrop...


...to Deck 7 (where they do the ceremonies)...



Just thought it would be kinda apt for you guys...

It crossed my mind ages ago but I didn't even think about doing it whilst docked in Nassau. How did you go about arranging yours? Do Disney have a website with options & pricing?

Another thing that I stopped me is we've only been married 8 years....isn't it just the celebs that renew their vows after a week. Mind you saying that we have been together for 17 years....which just dawned on me is more of my lifetime with him than without!

Here's a link! The cost of an onboard VR is $1500 OR you can do it at Castaway Cay for $2500 - that wasn't an option when we did ours. If I remember rightly, I rang them up to see if there was availability for the sailing - I think they only have two slots for VRs...

Awww!!! I don't think it matters about marriage duration TBH and 17 years together is amazing anyway!!!

I wish we'd done it earlier as it was just so much beeping fun and it would have been nice when the kiddiwinks were little!!! I loved it so much...

We're definitely going to renew all over again for our 30th (2012) tho' possibly on land (mind you Castaway Cay counts as land, right?!) and with the family...

Sorry, Claire - me again! Seems I can't leave you alone at the moment!!! Not only that BUT it's completely 100% ...

Moments ago I received an email from Kuoni featuring a hotel called Atlantis, the Palm. So it looks just like the Atlantis...




...and has all the features (leap of faith, the enormous aquarium) but it's in Dubai!!!

Did you know anything about this?? Anyway, it seemed to me that would be a perfect vow renewal venue for guys that had married at the Bahamas one so I just had to share...

Claire, I know you were thinking about buying Lee a netbook for his birthday or for September, just received an email from Stuff which has a short video review on 3 netbooks (that come with contracts). Thought you may be interested in it.

Yes I did hun. I knew about it a few years ago when they decided to build it, I found out as one of my friends owned a property on the Palm.

I would love to stay there if & when we go back to Dubai. It looks gorgeous, I saw a programme on tv a while back when it opened. LUSH!!!!

I have been looking at the vow renewals & although I would love to do it (as a surprise) I think maybe in a few years on our next cruise.....fingers crossed.
