Joe & I eat alone every day....I want to meet and eat with other fun people on a cruise. When I booked the cruise thru MS, they never even asked me what size table I wanted. I did pick late seating.....
I'm on page 49 of this tread and didn't see the answer to this question. Lots of posts for this cruise and I'm enjoying reading them.

Thanks -

Hi Karen,
Welcome to our cruise meet. I've added you to the roll call on page one. We have a large group (including Henlady) with early dining, so if you consider switching your time you're welcome to join us.

We also have 4 seats available on our bus charter from the port to WDW. Check the front page for info. Let me know if you would like to join our cabin crawl and meet some cruisers and see some different cabin types on our at sea day. Should be a good time.

Thanks,
Jim

pre/post cruise plans

trying to decide what to do either before or after this cruise and someone suggested doing back 2 back cruises. When I priced it out.....the cruise after is $120 ($60 p/p) more than the cruise before. This is keeping the same cabin we are in for the member cruise #8522.
Oct must be a little more expensive than Sept.......
I'm almost thinking that the pre-cruise cruise is less expensive than spending 3 days in Disney. The price of park passes alone is almost as much as the cruise fare. I don't have anymore points available this year, my nephew & family (3 boys, 5.4 & 1) are using the last of my points in May, so I would have to pay for hotel & park passes.....
Just might have to consider doing a back to back cruise. Thanks for the suggestion!!

Karen,
I like your line of thinking. Sounds like a perfectly good reason to book a B2B cruise and it's easier logistically.

This is our 6th Disney cruise but 1st member cruise. It's April 16th so now I have time to check out the board! We are Peggy and Gary and former Chicagoan's. Hi to jkfreeman from Crestwood and riarsen68! We both grew up on the North Side and lived in Gurnee before we got transferred to our new home in Florida! Looking forward to meeting everyone! We are late seating and will see where we end up since it's only the 2 of us! As long as a martini tasting doesn't interfere we would love to sign up for the Cabin Crawl. As long as it's Disney it's all good!

Welcome Peggy and Gary! Nice to see some fellow Chicagoans on board. This will be my 5th Disney cruise. But, it is also my first member cruise.

Welcome abigaillynn,
I will sign you up as crawlers and hopefully the tasting won't be a conflict. Look forward to meeting you.

Hey it's way too quiet over here.

FYI - next month we'll be approaching the 120 day mark.

Here are some tentative plans:

dinner at Palo and Remy w/ our daughter Marie
Palo brunch? (possible)
rent a cabana
spa treatment of some sort
ride bikes at CC
snorkel? (maybe)
late night swim (if possible)

catch a movie - have no idea what will be playing

and attend whatever special entertainment they offer!

not to mention the cabin crawl and fe.

These 4 days are going to go by very quickly.

I have some photos of cabanas buffet offerings I'll share soon.

what is everyone else planning?

I think you've got it pretty well covered! I don't think we'll be quite as adventuresome as you.

Palo Dinner
Palo Brunch
Cabin Crawl
Special Entertainment
Disney Shows (there are one or two new ones for us)
Pirates IN the Caribbean

I'm in the process of finalizing the outbound pick up route for our bus charter and need to reconfirm everyone's pre cruise resorts. Please post here with your confirmed stay.

We are booked at AKV Jambo so that stop is confirmed.

Thanks, Jim
