that's the kinda crazy prices we were looking at! Is that with the baggage added on ?

We are flying with Iberia - they are owned by BA. Not sure if they fly to Manchester but take a look

Also look at Air Europa - found OKish prices with them.

I don't remember any 'official orders' being taken either, I just remember Valbob asking what people thought of different ideas.

Scavenger sounds like something fun to organize. Anyone have any experience in organizing one or participating in one? Is it family? Separate for children? Separate adult? Organized one once when I worked for government. Guess it would be about the same.

Palo brunch

If the palo brunch is organised we would certainly be interested. On the 2011 WBTA this was one of our highlights and met some great people - Sarah, Brian, Mandy, Curt, Stevie & Dawn

The food was also out of this world

Ditto!! And for WBTA we had our confirmations back at 30 days prior to embarkation for all PALO group brunches. IMHO it is best to plan ahead and have the request in so that when DCL starts working on our sailing, we are in the queue with the requests. I think we ended up with 6 group brunches. Not one of those things to request at the last couple of weeks unless risk missing a slot for the private room. Just my two cents for the coordinator.

That's good to know. I think Chris (Grandma x3) and I are going to organize the Palo Brunches. I would appreciate any help or insight you and others can provide.

Do you think we should have some kind of sign up form on the website with a deadline? What is the earliest the request can be sent in? Maximum number for the private room is 14?

I wonder if we should consider a possible dinner for those of us traveling alone?

I'm really up for Palo brunch as well.

When in the cruise would you consider doing this? This may sound silly but because we haven't been to Palo before, we want to do the brunch ourselves first as well

all the palo brunch spots were gone on the wbta when it came to us 1st time cruisers booking 75 days out, one of the veteran disers suggested we request
the private dining room which we had no idea about.

doing a search on dis for palo group private dining there is conflicting info, some people have said if you book your own palo brunch when your booking window opens and then add yourself to a group your original booking
will automatically be cancelled, others say this has not happened to them.
