Morning everyone. I hope ya'll are having a GREAT start to the week-end. Me..............thanks for asking..............I am doing just great. I found us back on page 3 and wanted to bump us back up to page 1. That is where we should be........................because................. .WE ARE NUMBER 1 !!!!!

I do have to go out and do more trimming this morning. With our temps staying warm now the hedges and our palm trees are growing with leaps and bounds. It's getting harder each and every year to keep up with them. Our grass keeps growing too, but I do have a riding lawn tractor so mowing the lawn is a breeze.

Hey Kevin, did you see on the Disney Blog website, they had some pictures and a bit of info on O'Gills Irish Pub on the Fantasy. I think that would make a nice co-ed meeting spot for us all. What does everyone think?

Well, I better get out there and start my yard work. Hope everyone has a nice day today. I'll talk to you again later!!!

I'm all for eveything Irish (Especially today). I actually wanted to see what O'Gills was like anyway.

I'd love to check O'Gills out! We went into Pink for a few minutes on the Dream and decided it wasn't for us. A pub sounds much more like it!

I think that my esteemed VP is on to someing here. I also think that O'Gills would make a great meet spot for everyone.

On another note, woke up to SNOW again this morning. I don't care if I see another snow flake.

Kevin.

Wow. SO sorry about the snow. We had two snows here before Thanksgiving and nothing since. Weather here is more like mid-May than mid-March for sure. I'm going to have to watch my girls closely this summer as the mosquitos are so big already that they might just carry one off!

I think a meet and greet in O'Gill's sounds awesome

Btw what's the difference between secret Mickey and the FE exchange?

Talk to you all soon,
Dee

Hey everyone.......................did you see Kevin said I was ESTEEMED!!! I'm Esteemed..................esteemed................ ..esteemed..................that isn't like I'm mad or angry or anything is it??? Esteemed...............ok...........I just understand the word!??!! Is that where you put food in a pot and esteem it so you can eat it. Esteemed.............ok.............I'm officially lost here!! But I think O'Gills looks like a nice place for a get together. I've been checking all of the photos of it I can find. Looks real nice. DW is part Irish, so I know she will like it. Whenever she gets upset with me...............you sure can see the Irish part in her!!! I've seen it......................I don't know how many times over the years!!!

Soo sorry to hear you guys are waking up to snow..............it's almost Spring Kevin. I woke up to dark this morning, sun wasn't up yet! But it is to get around 85 here again today. Been like this for about 2 weeks now. You guys don't usually get snow this time of the year do you???

A Secret Mickey is like a Secret Santa exchange. You will be matched with one family and given 3-4 small gifts over the cruise and reveal who you are on the last night. A dollar amt for total spending is usually given.

Those that want to do FE but on a much smaller scale might do Secret Mickey. Some families might choose to do both.

Hope this helps.

Well Good Morning One and All!!! I hope this finds all of you out there happy and healthy this fine day today.

I saw on a post late yesterday that the Fantasy is in St. Martin. They had a photo of her at the dock there. Can't wait for that to be us in St. Martin on the Fantasy. This waiting thing for our cruise sure does take a long time huh??? And, then when our cruise does get here time needs to slow way down!!!

We have some Travel Agent friends going out on the Fantsy on March 23. Anxious to hear about their experience.

As for the Secret Mickey usually families are paired with families and couples are paired with couples. Usually the total is around $25 for the gifts. You save a little bigger gift for when you meet and your SM is revealed.

The FE is when little gifts are left in a holder that is attacked to the metal fish outside your door. Gradysmommy on Ebay sells some personalized ones and they are great or if you can sew and are creative you can make your own.
Sometimes this can get out of hand if there are 100 cabins that sign upand the group decides to give to everyone in the cabin it can be about 300 or so people. You have to take into consideration baggage weight for those flying. Some groups decided to give one gift per cabin and then if there are children in the cabin- give something to the children.
Some divide into groups of 25 so you are assigned a group.

I have done it many ways and depending on how many people sign up, the coordinator or the group can decide how to do it. Whatever is decided - it is a lot of fun

David, you may become the poster child for those to whom the itinerary doesn't matter! San Juan is the main reason we chose this cruise! At the time we booked it my BFF was engaged to a woman from PR, but they have since broken up...now I don't have an "in" to the great stuff to do! Ah well, such is life.

We are less than two months out from our b2b on the Dream. THEN we can really look forward to a REAL 7-nighter.

Has anyone here done a 3-night cruise? I have heard some interesting stories about them but haven't talked to anyone that as done one and had something good to say.

No seriously Amanda.............I meant to do that!!! It was a test to see if everyone..............not buying this huh!!!!! Ok..........ok.......ok.......I had a senior moment..........I admit it. Wait a minute...............got my hair cut this past week-end and I...............no good huh......that wouldn't do it either........sheeeeish rough crowd!!!

Well, to be completely honest with you Amanda, DW and I picked this one too because it is going to San Juan. We've never been there and wanted to see San Juan. DW works with a lady who is from P.R. and she told DW if you ever get a chance to go there - by all means go!!!

You wiil have fun on your b2b cruise Amanda. DW and I did a b2b on the Dream last September and we had the best time. If you like your servers from your first leg of your b2b ask for them on the second leg. That is what we did and we had a GREAT time. We have done a 3 day - on the Wonder back in 2008. It was ok..............but we will never do just a 3 or 4 day by itself again. We would do the b2b again in a heart beat though.
