We are doing Kon Tiki at St. Thomas, the beach excursion at San Juan and a cabana at CC. We are hoping the Kon Tiki will take us away from the crowds!
They have cabanas at CC? May I ask how much they are? I never saw them.

Is our cruise fairly empty?
I didn't know we had to book arrival times, I feel like such a newbie! lol I'm so clueless, I'm glad I found you all though!

They were sold out when we booked yesterday, but it appears the price range is $399-$499. It sounds like a lovely experience, though!

Good luck to everyone on the east coast today! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you are spared as much as possible!

(We're getting the very very edge of your storm here in SE Michigan - a lot of wind headed our way and a slight threat of snow)

Today's my first day since Labor Day weekend without my rigid ankle brace. If we get snow, it might be my last for awhile. I am NOT taking any chances on rolling my ankle again (EVER haha).

What trips at ports are all thinking of doing? i think the only one that I really want to do is the semi submarine in the ocean in St. Thomas.
We have late dinning.... being in CA and jumping a head in time it helps to have late dinner. And all my kids are older (7, 11, & 14) and in sports so it is usually 8pm by the time we are eating anyway. We are night owls and kids don't have a set bed time other then when the kids clubs end lol when we are on the cruise

St. Thomas we are taking a taxi to Coki beach. Love the snorkeling you can do just a couple of feet out from shore. San Juan kids are staying on ship and Mom and Dad are doing the Bacardi distillery. CC hoping to snag a cabin we'll see. But my teen is doing to teen excursion since last time she told me everyone in the vibe got to go but her.... hopefully all the vibe kids are doing it this time.

Wat is FE stuff

FE groups are like a secret santa group on the ship. You sign up your cabin to participate in giving gifts to the other cabins in your group and in return you get gifts from everybody in the group. Most of the gift have the cruise or ship theme to them, most of the gift makes for good memories. That is the best way I can tell what FE Groups are.

We too are on early dining. Which works well for us as we tend to be in bed not too late. Two years ago though when dd was 5 she informed us one night at 10:30 that she "wanted to go to the club".. we looked at each other shrugged, checked the navigator and went to an adult comedian.
Also helps to know that there are sometimes the bigger shows in the afternoon.

As for excursions we are doing the aquarium, butterfly/coral garden in St. Thomas and self guiding ourselves in San Juan and cabana in cc.

Isn't "allowing" things like this so much fun? I love answering "yes" when Jayden asks something that she expects a "no" to.
