If you have any questions about 6616, ask away while my mind is still fresh. You know...old age and you start to forget things.

Also, you can leave all your stuff in your stateroom when doing a B2B and you are staying in the same place. It will be interesting to see what DCL will make us do since we are disembarking in Canada, maybe we won't have to get off the ship? Now, that would be nice......

We can plan a big DIS MEET for the B2B before boarding begins if we stay on the ship. Like a Jimmy Buffet party.....it will be 5 o'clock somewhere!
I'm such a complete dork. In my mind's eye I envisioned getting off for a bit at Port Canaveral! Obviously I wasn't thinking clearly since we'll be in Vancouver and not FL. hahaha
If they don't make us get off the ship- something tells me this cruise may have an extraordinary amount of B2B'ers on it? Maybe I'm wrong.. but maybe I'm right. LOL We'll see.

In Vancouver it will be the U.S. citizens who are the aliens. Maybe they'll herd all the aliens into the theatre to clear immigration at an ungodly hour as they used to do in DCL with the non-U.S. passengers.

Afterall, turn around is fair play, isn't it?

Although I've neer been there, I've heard from a number of friends (both Canadian and American) that Vancouver is a truly fabulous city and that we will probably WANT to get off the ship to experience it if we can. I've even had some friends suggest we get a hotel and plan to stay a few days in Vancouver after the trip.

(And isn't Vancouver the host for the 2010 Winter Olympics? So when we're there early in 2011 the city will still be riding high after that, perhaps, and there may be really great sites/buildings/etc. to see from that, as well!)

So my dad and I just booked this cruise as well. We just wanted to do another b2b since it is great.

So we are now on the 4/27 cruise and this one

You will WANT to get off the ship, especially if the ship docks at Canada Place.

Lots of shops and restaurants close by. There's even an IMAX 3D theater at Canada Place, and a Hop On Hop Off bus just outside the terminal.

OK so how would we do the FE since some of use will not be B2B's for this one? Would we wait till everyone is onboard in Canada to do it?

LOL... we will see. Sailing on my Birthday would be nice.

And truth be told I would not know the first thing about "organizing" the Fish Extenders. I just give something to everyone!! I think that is the job of the one that was "first to extend the fish" And I still can not get over how the whole phenomenon has happened!

But my "original" fish extender is so boring compared to what others are doing! Or maybe, mine is the unique one

Heck mine is just a photobag that I have put all kinds of Disney Family Photos in. I hang it over the fish to collect all the goodies in.... Mine doesn't even look anything like the common FE...

I would suggest that in keeping with the notion I suggested that this is one continuous itinerary from LA to Alaska with 2 segments, FE participants would choose to sign up for gifts to be distributed during segment 1 (LA-Vancouver), segment 2 (Vancouver-Alaska) or double dip gifts for distributed on both segment 1 and on segment 2.

Ian, when it gets closer to the cruises I think your survey would be a really good way to help all the organizers sort everything out.

We have a few small cruises possibly planned so that will help to get us by until we get to the cruise in 2011! We have been on 7 cruises thus far with DCL and we are hoping to make it all the way to Platnium by this one. I know we have a few to go. LOL...

So do you think they will change the menus this cruise? Also what about the fireworks? If it is light all the time do you think that they will still do them at some point? I guess I am also wondering about party changes onboard as well. I guess we will be the first to find out right!? LOL! Last of all does anyone know what the temps will be like in Alaska that time of year?
