Do I really want to spend the entire day sailing and snorkling? And will 8 am come too early?

This is so depressing as I was so looking forward to this excursion. I don't snorkel, but my dh really wanted to do this and now I'm worried it'll be a bust and we should pick something that starts later.

Anyone else thought about this?
yep! I'm probably gonna cancel our snorkeling tour. We booked the Paradise Point skyride also so we'll probably just do that and do whatever we feel like on our own. It's the 3rd time we've been here (4th for me) so pretty sure we'll want to sleep in a bit more on new years day

This is our second time but we did magan's bay last time so I really wanted to do the all day thing.

Sigh. Will think about it some more. Disappointed. No matter what we decide its not satisfactory.

What are the times of the later excursions on Jan 1?

I wish they would post the times on the excursions in the descriptions rather than making us log in and select etc.

What are the start times of some later excursions?

If excurtion has a 8 am schedule it means at least one hour earlier for the group gathering, toooooo early for Jan 1st.

We booked Champagne and snorkle Catamaran in St John and it is scheduled for 12:30 pm. Also planing for roomservice breackfast that morning.

Maybe there is still time to book it.

Going to coral world with the kids and doing the submersible and then spending the afternoon at Coki Point Beach. Opinions anyone? Kids are 7 and 4.

So Nakoma had a great idea.... A group photo, I'm always down for taking a picture (that's what I do in my spare time)! So I'd like to know everyone's thoughts on if you'd like to do this, day, time, place. I think we will need a big space... Staircase! Not sure about children being awake but after second dinner the lobby would be less full of people, but it would be late. Of we could plan for our 2nd day on the ship (30th) maybe morning because I know some of us have palo (like us!), give me your thoughts!

How to order shirts & hats:

Call: 1-866-614-8002

Enter Account number: 991292868107

Use the following numbers below to answer the next few questions:

Press: 1
Press: 1

They may ask for an email, just tell them that you are part of a group and don't know the email. I am the only one that will see the emails but I will not see your addresses or credit/debit card numbers just what you ordered.

Once connected explain you need to place an order. BUT you need them to EDIT (use this word) the items you would like to order. All you are changing is the name. It will be changed to your last name with ‘s (ex: The Smith’s)

-Make sure name is changed on ALL items!
-Make sure you spell your name to assure it’s right!

Checkout:

AFTER they give you the total, tell the sales rep to go look in the notifications on the account because they need to apply a 25% discount to that amount.

Pay over the phone with your credit/debit card

Make sure you give them your address not the one on the account (or I’ll be mailed your stuff )

Good luck everyone and lets pray this works smothly! IF you have problems the fastest way to contact me is my email (I will get it though my cell instantly) it is sgc1107@hotmail.com just make sure you put a subject so I know what it's about or I'll junk it
Just reminding everyone is you would still like to order you can! Please allow at least 2 weeks for shipping (in US)!

Hi folks -- I'm new to the boards. I'm a single dad taking my two sons (13 and 10) on the Fantasy, sailing December 29. Also doing a week in Orlando prior to the cruise. We can't wait!

Perhaps I'll see some of you by the pool, or for a beer at O'Gills!

Welcome! I also have a 10 yr old son (and 6 yr old DD) We'll be at WDW for a few days prior to cruise staying at BWV and AKV Jambo. Where are you staying?
I'm sure the boys will meet in the clubs :-)
