Staley98, thanks for the recommendation on the underwater camera. I am searching for one (or actually, I have it in my mind that I shall be searching for one, as soon as I get around to it!). I have absolutely no idea where my underwater camera is that I last used 2 years ago. It seems to have just walked away. I would blame my puppy for eating it, but he wasn't here back then!

I emailed Tigger/Pooh4 to please keep my family in the FE group.

Also, for my DD's sake, I am so glad to see so many 18-20 year olds! I do hope they can meet, for if nothing else, we know they have Disney in common! She is really sad about having to share her sister this cruise with her fiance (he is joining us). I really wish DD will find some friends to hang out with!

It is still hard to imagine nice weather in my future, but here in Chicagoland, looks like it is coming! My crocus are up and the temperature is climbing! Woohoo, good times are coming! Hope the bartenders on board are stocking up on Mojito fixings for me!
If you can't find the great deal that Staley98 got at Walmart, I can heartily recommend the Kodak PlaySport which also takes HD video. It's under $100 on Amazon. I've got the Z3, which is great. The newer model is the Z5, and I can't vouch for that, but I'm really pleased with the discontinued model. It's a little more expensive, so if you can find the CoolPix, that's a great deal.

Welcome aboard! Are you the 16 yo daughter of Sterlint? The first step to getting acquainted with everyone here is to check out the first post in this thread. It will give you info about who is on this thread, participating in a gift exchange onboard, and a link to join our facebook group, if you're on facebook. I would then take your time perusing the pages of this thread to get to know everyone and learn lots of useful information. There are quite a few 16 - 18 yo's in our group, so you should be able to make some friends. Also, I hear the teen club is great!

Fb

Ok, I consider myself to be somewhat facebook savvy but I cannot figure out how to request to be a part of this FB page. Every time I click the link on the first post, it just takes me to my newsfeed and I don't find any way to request how to be a part of it. Sorry for all the questions. Just found out about this board and want to get involved.

After you click on the link to the FB page there will be a button to join group as our page is a private group. Click on the link. Bobbie is the admin and she will grant you access to the page.

Have you figured out the fb thing yet? I haven't received your request to join. Let me know if you continue to have trouble, and I will send you a link to my page. If you add me as a friend, then I can send you an invitation to join the fb group.

Also, what is the consensus about a meet and greet? Can those of you who have cruised the big ships before suggest an appropriate location, and what time/day does everyone like to meet?

I found a place that will do the DIS lime green silicone wrist bands for a pretty reasonable price. It's more hassle than it's worth to try to collect money for them, so I'd be happy just to order them and pass them out at the meet and greet. I'll consider them an addition to my FE presents, even for those who aren't doing FE.

I would suggest the Vista Café on deck 4 in the Atrium area at 3pm. The pool deck would be crowded and hot. The Vista café is centrally located and is like the Promenade Café on the classic ship. There is a bar right there so if anyone wants a drink you can get one right there.

We are now at 30 participants and we will be splitting up the FE group into two groups but you can be a part of both groups if you wish. I will ask everyone who has already signed up to confirm that they still want to part of the FE and whether they want to in one group or both. Please either PM me here on the DIS, PM me over on Facebook or email me at nascar9@aol.com with your confirmation and whether you want to be on one or both groups by April 7th. If you do not confirm your participation by April 7th, then we will consider you no longer interesting in participating in the FE.
Bump

Just a reminder that the cutoff for the FE is tomorrow. Thanks for all that have confirmed they are still in the FE. I still have not heard from the following below. I do not wish that anyone be left behind therefore please confirm before 4/7. Thanks,

Bobbi, I'm so glad to hear that you love the Kodak Playsport. Jeff is really tempted to get one of those for us and let the kids use the Nikon (Ava LOVES to take pictures). Have you used it to take underwater pics and video? Are they clear? TIA!

I have tried everything to make this work and cannot get the link to come up. I would be glad to friend you on FB so I could be part of the page. Let me know what you need to do that.

Thanks!

It take good pics underwater. I don't think I've done any video underwater yet, but the regular video is very good. I had used it for a while and then took it in a pool on vaction in Florida, and it stopped working! Turns out I hadn't securely fastened the door to the battery/memory card compartment, and the camera had filled up with water. Total user error. I'd had such good results with it up until then that I decided to go ahead an buy another one. I will post some underwater shots to the fb page so you can see.
