Also, RC decided that we should not have been allowed to book 4 adults into our cabin, so they gave us an extra one (also ocean view). I'm thinking the mistake was originally allowed because we changed the date and added a person while staying in the same cabin.

Coco Cay was lovely, but the snorkel vest they make you rent is horribly gadgety and heavy and has a long snorkel like tube attached which whacks you in the arm. But I got some great footage of a sting ray, so I forgave them.

That is cool getting another cabin. . Best part no charge.

Glad you had a good time.

We are going to be doing the sea blaster. Have you tried the St. John forum for that other cruise discussion board?

To be honest, my first snorkelling expedition on Coco Cay, I went alone. In my own defense, I didn't go out past the markers, and there were lifeguards.

Enjoyed the Pumpkinmen
Never liked the idea of using a snorkel after someone else

Not yet, maybe I'll take a look.

On one Disney Magic cruise, I snorkeled at St John, having found a buddy on our cruise meet thread. That turned out to be a good thing for her, since she experienced a leg cramp and I had to help her back to shore. From that experience, I try to find a snorkel buddy whenever possible. You never know.

Hello my fellow Fantasy Cruisers! As of August 31, 2012

Below is the list of people that are participating in the Fish Extender exchange so far.

If you sent me and e mail or PM and do not see your name please re send. I do not have it, sorry.

Also, everyone has two adults in the room except were I have it listed.
The ones that have ** in front of them have one adult in the room. The ones that have *** have 3 adults in the room and the ones that have **** have 4 adults in a room.


So far there are 20 cabins.

Please keep in mind the cut off to participate in the Fish Extender exchange is October 16, 2012. This way it gives everyone time to get there items.
If any one would like a list with room numbers and such before Dec 1st send me an e mail (girlwolf@excite.com) or PM me your e mail address and after the cut off I will send you the spreadsheet
.

Glad you got what you wanted to. I say go for it. Get him the call. I did it for my husband and he was looking at his phone like who is calling. When he answered he just laughed.

glad you got what you wanted. Makes it feel real once you get to do all of that. Now it is time to start thinking on what to bring.

I know here I will be wearing a heavy coat by the time we leave, so I have to leaves things out for the cruise

I'm pondering the same thing! Sounds like a fun idea.

Would love to book a call for my DH but the problem is he would never answer the phone. He would say I'm on vacation!

Next job is door decorations! Finally pulled out my magnets from last cruise to see what I can use & what new ones I need to make!
