Amen sister-friend!! I am strongly in favor of keeping Fish Extenders as disorganized as possible!! I think creating a very basic list of who will HAVE a fish extender (so we can get a head count) is fine.....but then I'm with Deb----just get something small and give to everyone. I've been on cruises and seen threads where the Fish Extender exchange becomes so involved that I can't even keep up with it!!

(And, Deb....the original never goes out of style! Your fish extender is fabulous----if for no other reason than that it predated all others. In fact, I think it belongs at the Smithsonian next to Archie Bunker's chair and the ruby slippers!! By the by, however, you can have my and Jason's old fish extender if you really want something fancier (do you remember that giant colorful thing?!?! ) as I think we're going to make a new one before our 2010 cruises....and then we'll have it for the Alaska voyage, too!

Just a few short blocks from Canada Place (cruise terminal) there is Harbour Centre. To picture it just think of Seattle's space needle on top of a building.



Probably get a good view of the ship from there, depending on which side of Canada Place it docks at.


This is a view of Canada Place (the white sails) from Harbour Centre.

Of course, Canada Place and Harbour Centre are located right in the middle of historic Gastown:


And that's just some of the sights easily within walking distance of the terminal. I haven't even traveled in these pics more than a few blocks.

I can attest to that. I was born there!

You have the Legislative buildings:


You can go for proper high tea at the Empress:


There is the Royal British Columbia Museum:


A nice stroll through Beacon Hill Park:


And I haven't even left the inner harbour area yet...

FE Plan

On the Magic 9/5 EC we kept the FE plan simple. A quick list of participants with names and ages. The ages help with selecting age appropriate gifts for the tweens, kids and infants. One gift per person per cruise. A couple cabins were assigned to play "Santa" on each day. It seemed there were gift each time we came back to the cabin.

My best friend's family and mine were assigned the last day. We decided to do something in keeping with a travel day. For the grown ups she did trail mix packets and I did teriyaki jerky (made here in town). For the kids there were little crafts/games that could keep them busy in the car, plane or airport. Just after midnight we ran up and down the corridors shushing our giggling DDs as we delivering our goodies to everyone on the list. . . .

What do you think?

I hadn't thought about that... me no likey that idea. LOL
(I'm so NOT a morning person. If we have to do that- I'll likely have to just stay up all night. No point in going to sleep shortly before we have to be there for customs LOL)

Whoa- I hadn't even thought about that! Good thing I couldn't already book our flight. That's definitely something to consider- if we aren't completely broke by then.

Good Morning fellow cruisers....I'm a booked B2B also. I see a lot of familiar faces on here and many that I'm anxious to get to know.

We're in Orlando and we'll be packing out and driving home to PA soon. Just got off the Magic with a bunch of Tortolians then on to WDW for a few days. What a great trip it's been, but sadly my fun with Mickey has come to an end for now.

Time to begin planning the next ones. I'm currently booked on 5 cruises over the next 2 years. Three of them I'm keeping and two I'm forced to cancel. I'm really looking forward to doing these B2B cruises.

hahahaha.....good catch Woody. Thanks.

Can you tell I'm still in vacation mode?

I guess we'll have to find a place near the port in LA. WOOHOO!!! This is going to be a fun trip to plan....it's completely different.

I'm so glad you and Mrs. Woody will be onboard with us. We did a Thieves reunion Cozy Cove chat on the Tortola cruise....but I didn't call you because your SR number was not on any of the lists. We'll have to fix that next cruise....you could just wisper it to me.
