If they have dropped out of sight completely by the time we hit 200 pages, maybe we should just designate someone to start the next thread and begin the info page as well. (Just a suggestion!)

Sounds great!

Can't believe PIF date almost is here!

Thank you for doing that!

The lines are busy today... I had to call WDW for a client's reservation and was on hold for 45 minutes before I could talk to someone. They told me to give it 4-5 hours before the email is sent from that as they have been swamped today.

Ok i found info about the trainride thru the Alps.

It takes some time and it;'s expensive but it should be very beautiful.
The route is Barcelona - Montpellier (4.42pm - 9.14pm about €60 per adult)
Overnight stay at Montpellier
Montpellier - Geneve (between 4 and 5 hours about €70 per adult)
Overnight stay at Geneve
Geneve - Amsterdam (around 8 hours about €100 per adult)
This itinerary is the only one where you do drive thru the day (so you realy can see the Alps).

Here are the websites you need to go to to book this:
Barcelona - Montpellier
http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/via...les/index.html
click on this route: España - Francia
Trayecto: Lorca - Montpellier

Montpellier - Geneve:

Geneve - Amsterdam:

No problem. All of the dates you had in your earlier post were absolutely correct.

I guess the second Formal Night is not the norm because the fella I talked to seemed very surprised that there was a second one. I think our 2007 WBTA had a second Semi-formal night.

FE list

ok - I have been playing with the information that BinkyTell provided (Thank you SO much!!)

I have created a spreadsheet of the names and I THINK I have it right... I could post the spread sheet on a linked page -but this is BinkyTells list and I will not interfere in how she is running it.

so the totals are:

total adults:67
total adult women: 34 - I am missing two people (Kris3kid - not sure of gender)
total adult men: 33 - I am missing two people (Kris3kid - not sure of gender)

total children: 27
total girls: 17
total boys: 10


please, reread this and check my info!! We are giving gifts to each cabin, but are thinking about adding special items for kids (we don't have kids, but think they should enjoy the gifts!!)

I am SO sorry if this has been discussed before, I may have even asked it myself! How many formal nights and semi formal nights can we expect on this cruise. I need to get a trip planning notebook like the awesome Mandygirl

Heather, thanks so much for sending those Navigators over, I have received them - I am just going to wait until tomorrow to look at them as my DB is away on business tonight!

Hopefully any remaining activities that need to be coordinated can get volunteers soon, and I think Binkytell has put together a list (she started contacting some to see if they were still onboard).
Perhaps that was an idea someone had in the hopes more of us would volunteer (I am part of another message board for moms of twins and one of the smilies is a bag over the head. That would be so perfect here since I have volunteered for nothing).

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.
definately lesson learned there, im sure its a lot of work especially on these longer cruises with higher number of cruisers.

out of courtesy to val after the work she has already put in, i agree we wait till she's back, im sure she will be along shortly.

Maybe my girls can convince your boys to try it!
spooky, us mums just know these things as we know everything right???
