So I would love to hear how many people are making their own fish extenders versus buying them. I think I will make one, but haven't figured out how exactly yet when I don't have the abilities or time.

I had to buy my FE. I don't have the talent for that. But I'm making most of the gifts myself.

I am sure we will enjoy them : ). I am also debating on getting one of the ikea organizers and then decorating it. I don't know....

We had a wonderful visit with my Aunt Jeanette (who is sailing with us) to do some planning for the cruise. We have decided the only excursion we will do is the Seven Mile Beach Break in Grand Cayman. In Costa Maya we will just go ashore and shop and maybe swim in the pool at the port. Since we have all already been to Cozumel (more than once) we will probably just go ashore to shop a little, and then return to the ship to explore. We will then enjoy the day on Castaway Cay at the beach, and maybe explore the island a little. At least that is the plan at the moment. Once we get onboard, who knows!!! We could alter what we plan to do.....it is a vacation after all!!

I like your thinking! I know I have gotten a bit obsessed about planning, perhaps I need to relax a bit. It is a vacation after all

We had a similar plan when we cruised a 7 day Bahamas/Key West on Carnival last year. The ship was brand new and had lots to do, but aside from Key West I knew the ports were going to be pretty boring. Key West was the only day we even bothered disembarking. It was a last minute booking for spring break out of Galveston, so not needing to purchase plane tickets made it very appealing even though we had been to all of the ports already.

This one is different for us though. When we did the Western on the Magic in 2008, we were cruising with an 11 month old, so most of the more daring shore excursions were off the table. She's big 6 now and he's 10, so both are more portable and fun. I think we're planning to something fairly "big ticket" at each port.

What do you like to have done in the spa?

I usually have a hot stone massage and a pedicure, and the last few times hubs and I have opted for the couples massage as well. I've had a facial once, which was heavenly and got me hooked on the Elemis moisturizer, and we tried the exotic rassoul once (not our thing--too hot!) I was thinking that it might to be fun to try a different massage... maybe Thai poultice or bamboo. Thoughts on this? Do you have a favorite spa treatment?

Have never tried the spa, but would like to at least get a manicure, and maybe a pedicure this time. We have a bit more time on this cruise since it is a 7 day. Our last one was a 5 day.

Sorry, but I have to ask what an "exotic rassoul" is. I don't remember seeing it and it sounds mysterious.

The Thai poultice sounded wonderful but i wasn't sure about the Bamboo.

I wish my husband could do anything spa. He tried once and giggled through the whole massage. He is very ticklish.
