If not and someone is interested we could plan something together.
FWIW, I vote for the group meet on embarkation day before the muster drill. We've done this in the past and it has worked out great. Just my $0.02. Thanks for organizing!

I'd also love to do a group meet. This is our first cruise with kids so we're flying by the seats of our pants. I have no preference so we'll just go with the flow but I'd love to be able to have my boys meet some other kids who will also be in the kids club.

No one knows for sure what you would like to do and no one knows where the best time/place to meet. What do you suggest?

Thanks for putting the lists together. For me I voted for two groups, but I think three would be more manageable. But whatever wins, I am good with.
I would love to meet on the ship. Have you decided on anything on FB yet? PLEASE, don't forget us over here.
On all 10 cruises we have had a meet before the muster drill. Wouldn't it be rather hard on sea days with people sleeping in, going to Palo or Remy? But I'll go with whatever you "lot" want.

Since you asked for suggestions .... I would say, embarkation day. Between 3 and 4, more like 3.15, as I am sure some of us will be at the DVC presentation which usually starts a 2? or 2.30?
So far we have always met in the Vista Cafe right above the Atrium. Don't know if it would work with over 100 people, but I am sure not everyone will attend a meet.
Just my 2 cents.

Did you see how the poll ended? It's split right in the middle. But I tend to lean towards the 2 groups. We have a few who are not responding and IF we won't get any info on them, if we have three groups they might shrink too much. If we split in half we would have 22/23 staterooms, not counting the "non responsive" ones.
I will need to make a decision come Sunday. So this will be something to think about.

Questions for peeps with little ones... what do you have them wear for dinner? Polo and pants? I'm pretty sure my 3 year old will get something tasty all over him so I will see yall in the laundry room!

Question for everyone... what is your one item that you can't leave home without. (Not an essential item like passports... a non-essential item).

Happy Thursday!
Happy belated birthday to your sister and happy birthday to you!
Let your grandma know that by the beginning of next week she will have her list!

One thing I cannot leave home without, scissors and a screwdriver. Both have come in handy LOADS of times.

Best thing to bump into some familiar faces again and again. Just don't forget to keep us in the loop here.
Guess, being that we are foreigners we won't be any good at trivia games.

Also... the one item I can't leave home without is my camera. I HAVE to have that, as I LOVE taking tons of pictures of EVERYTHING. That way I can have reminders when I look through the pictures over and over!

I FORGOT to say that I would LOVE to do a trivia game. I have a Hidden Mickey book for the cruise that I am going to bring AND I think I have a sheet or something that I found online for finding things on the ship. Like a picture sheet or something. I can't remember.
Ah, the Hidden Mickey book! Make sure you have a recent copy as there are things added with every new edition. We ARE talking about the yellow book, aren't we?

Oh, and a camera is a vacation essential for us - we definitely travel with more than one.

Yes, I think embarkation day would be a good choice. No tours, reservations or anything.
Let me know what you all want.

I can't believe no one has brought up the idea of a meet here earlier.
Wouldn't a first day meet the perfect way to introduce the kids to each other and to get to know one another?
Only 6 more weeks!!!!!!!

I think the first day, around 3:15, sounds good. Kids can meet, adults can meet, friendship can be made and VACATION can START! Let's DO THIS!!

I am SO READY for vacation. I am over June. I am ready for July!! I've been putting out stupid fires left and right a work and at home. I am SO ready to sail away!!

Scissors! I really need to put that on the list!

I'm serious about the trivia though, fair warning.. I'm more than a little competitive and so is DH. On our honeymoon we played Harry Potter trivia (just the two of us... who are we kidding.. I was playing, he was watching) and we won! BOOYAH! Not to mention that most people had about 6 people each in their groups. Very competitive + lots of useless facts = GOOD TIMES!!

May I add that they have a yum yum drink of the day in a souvenir cup to make making friendships even easier.

Tell me about it ...... the end of the school year is a pain and I just learned that I am going to be a head teacher next year.
Even more stuff to prepare for next fall.

Okay, I'll gladly come and watch you win. But believe me, I am NO good at anything like it ...... says the teacher, who after a year still can't remember the last names of her pupils.
