I just used the search feature on Facebook in a variety of ways as well as visually scanned. I believe that post must have been deleted. I also went through the last few days of this thread to see if those dates were posted here but cannot find it so I can copy paste. Pretty sure it was 1/14 but I could be mistaken.

Here is what I had written down in my trip planning notebook when seeing that post though (hoping I wrote it down accurately):

5/19 - formal night (at sea)
5/24 - Pirate Night (also was previously in our PreCruise Planning Guide with reservation)
5/25 - Semi Formal
5/29 - Formal night

All formal/semi-formal nights are on sea days.

The nerd side of me likes to see the whole cruise at a glance, which could look like this:

5/17 - precruise Rooftop Bar 7:00pm at Tremont (Galveston)
5/18 - Galveston embarkation day (proposed 3:00 Meet-and-Greet and receive lanyards)
5/19 - at sea (proposed DIS PJ Breakfast;DCL Formal Night)
5/20 - at sea
5/21 - Castaway Cay
5/22 - at sea
5/23 - at sea
5/24 - at sea; DCL Pirate Night (also in our PreCruise Planning Guide with reservation)
5/25 - at sea; DCL Semi Formal
5/26 - at sea
5/27 - at sea
5/28 - Madeira
5/29 - at sea; DCL Formal night
5/30 - Gibraltar
5/31 - at sea
6/1 - Barcelona disembarkation

I know some may still consider it early, but I think it may be beneficial to have all event coordinators in place so planning can really take off, especially after we hit PIF date.

I agree. It would make it so much easier to find the important stuff.

It was deleted off of FB. Why I don't know? Your notes are correct at least how I remember it.

I couldn't find it, but anyone can delete their own posts. Might be an oversight on my part.

I have last year navigators scanned in color if anyone has interest in them I can post them if I can figure out how to do it. They are in PDF format. I know I posted them previously but they were in black and white and not very legible. These are a much cleaner copy.

In the past, we have often received baggies of various items, single items per stateroom, as well as single items for each person in a stateroom. I can't say we ever recall getting a single item from someone on multiple days. On any given 7-night cruise, it is usually suggested that not everyone distribute their FE's on the first night. Some have opted to make deliveries later in the cruise ... others divide deliveries equally over the span of the cruise. We typically receive FE's on every day of the cruise ... up until after dinner on the last night of the cruise. I believe, if you think about making a single trip to any given stateroom (in lieu of multiple trips), you will find it cuts down on a lot of time.


Steven
Thanks Steven, that makes more sense (to me anyway) than the way I read it before.

WOW ya'll have a been a busy bunch. I have had alot going on and just now came to catch up and miss SO much! LOL

The only beach by Houston is Galveston. Just so that you know, it's not like a Florida beach. the water is not blue and the sand is not white. LOL So just wanted to let you know in case you are used to something different.

If Valbob is unable to do that or perhaps busy with something else maybe someone else would like to take on that task (not me). I'm sure she wouldn't mind and would understand.
I agree.

Here's my personal story. I started a meet thread for a Fantasy cruise in August of next year. I booked it and there was no thread started. So I started it. I've never started one before and I hadn't put any thought into it. Then I got busy with the holidays and such and didn't check back for three weeks. I was horrified to find that I was expected to keep track of roll call, etc and I was woefully behind . I am NOT that organized. I quickly caught up, but I also offered to give that thread over to someone else. I haven't had any takers . Anyway, my point is that I think I'm not alone in not keeping up. I have vowed to never start a meet thread again .

Anyway, when Valbob gets back I'm sure they'll update the first post. If they don't get back, we might be able to have a mod close this thread and start a new one (after making a link in the final post to the new thread). I think we should give it a few days and see if they get back. They might just be really busy and ready to update as soon as they get back!

Those are the two things that are listed on the first post for anyone else checking in.

I agree. I'm not a big "joiner", but we'd definitely like to be a part of a few of the things. Especially the first meet and greet (I missed where that was talked about, I didn't realize one was being planned).

Would love some positive thoughts for tomorrow please. Have had a lump on my neck for a month, am having an ultrasound scan on it tomorrow. Hopefully it will be nothing to worry about, but am terrified, and my brain keeps running away with me.

Consequently I am slightly worried about all my plans, as don't currently have travel insurance (was waiting to take it out after my second bladder operation, which is next week, as thought it would be easier to get that out the way). Won't find out results til after paid in full date............

Anyway, nothing I can do now, and fingers crossed it will be nothing. Some positive vibes would be much appreciated though.

Maybe any time we have pertinent info, we ask ValBob to please update on first post of thread so all updates are kept there? I believe kirbo has sent a message to them.

I have proposed an idea of new thread setup once we hit 200 pages, and had also suggested that idea back in the summer, whereas all pertinent info can be kept on page one. Had a couple positive replies from a few on thread regarding that but no definitive answer. Not sure all folks like having all the important info on page one in one easy-to-find-place.

ETA: Here's the post and link of the suggestion I posted again recently:
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=2169
Definitely agree that it would be very useful for useful info to be kept on the front page! Thanks Mandy

Heather, I believe nobody else can edit the front page as Valbob started this thread? Please somebody correct me if I am wrong - so sorry if I am Heather
