Let me know if there is any intersted. It looks like we will be joining you (DH too!)
Interesting idea. I was re-watching the Disney Cruise planning video this morning on a laptop as the power was out and I saw the tiny bit with the 2 people running down the deck and vowed to myself I'd have to try it. I'm tempted but it's going to depend how much longer this car accident plagues me.

I'm sorry you won't be cruising with us, but I'm sure you'll have a great time on RCI. If nothing else, your new cruise probably has a better itinerary than DCL's!

We're PIF!

How much of a pain is the whole FE thing if people upgrade at the port? I guess that's what the whiteboard organizer is for? We all confirm room numbers after the start of the cruise?

Has anyone done EBTA and gotten a upgrade at the port?

BTW, if anyone's watching the roll coll, we zoomed past 60 while I was in London. We're at 64! A few people notified me directly of dropping out however so they've been removed.

Yes, it does. Sails for Southampton from San Juan on 4/21 with stops at St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Bart's, St. Lucia and the Azores. No Castaway Cay though . My next Disney cruise doesn't stop there either, on less they make a BIG change to the Alaska itinerary LOL!!!

We will miss sailing with you again but am so jealous you are going to St. Lucia. That is where Michael and I honeymooned and we LOVED it! If you plan on hiking the Pitons, bring lots and lots of water and food! It was the most intense hike I have ever done ( and I have backpacked through the Alps). I didn't think Michael was going to make it to the top and he was in Marathon shape. Also, don't arrange a tour on your own, go through the cruise. The roads and infrastructure are in poor shape and roads will collapse and close in the rain with no other way back. Our resort ended up having to helicopter people to the airport a few times. Enjoy!

Tell me about it - We Brits have been screaming at our government for years. The departure taxes are going up almost yearly. It's incredible!

As a Brit, and a former 'Londoner' (Most people think I still am as I seem to carry the accent!), I'd be happy to give you recommendations etc of places to see, stay, visit, eat at etc - If anyone is planning a stop in London, just let me know what you would like to do and I'll give you the benefit of my experience (which of course you are more than welcome to ignore )

Thanks - I need some motivation - I have around 2-300 more to process (of course some will be to bin), but to be honest I just got lazy. Nice feedback always give me a push.

Your right It's always a starting point to break the ice

Can you point me in the direction of the best website to use?
You can try with http://www.voyages-sncf.com/
It's the main website for train in France, but you can plan a trainride between Barcelona and Belgium or Swiss.
If you want to see french alpes you should try Chamonix or Grenoble (but it's not as closed from the moutain as Chamonix)
I f you need info about the Alpes we live just near them, so let me know
