Hi All!

We're one of those that couldn't pass up the Florida Resident rate for this sailing, so we'll be joining you! Just booked it right now! My name is Kristin and we live in Tampa.

We were just on the August 15th sailing with our 6 year old son...but this trip will just be DH and me! Looking forward to it. Sure seems like it's not very full, so that should be nice!!

Thanks for inviting me to join the FE but I think I'm going to sit this one out! I love participating in that, but having just done one in August (and we're booked again for March and will be doing FE then too), I think I'll take a break! It's a lot of fun though - enjoy!

Here's hoping we have a crowd-free ship and smooth sailing!!

Castaway Cay is my happy place!! Love the adult beach there. It was SO hot there a few weeks ago. November will be a lot more tolerable weather-wise!

No, we didn't. And we didn't have any excursions planned either. We got off the ship first thing in the AM before it was really blazing hot! Dropped DS off at the kids club there and then we went to the adult beach. Probably only stayed an hour there before going back, picking up DS, doing a little souvenir shopping, eating lunch and getting back on the ship! Even though we live in Florida, we don't do heat!

Sounds like our trip last October. It was lovely but way too hot! You stayed longer than we did. We enjoyed the rest of the day looking over the wonderful vista of castaway cay from the air con on the ship sipping drinks and lying on day beds!

Ahhh...relaxing! We also enjoyed going back to the Meridian bar (aft) to watch us pull away from Castaway Cay. We were the only ones back there and it was neat to watch them drop lines and to get a real good look at CC, as it disappeared from view. Deck 4 (maybe that's where you were?!)...my second favorite happy place. I love to sit there on the lounge chairs, with a drink...in the peace and quiet...watching the world go by!

Oh not tried that bar will check it out this time! I am not sure which deck it might have been deck 4 where the adults only area was. It was screened off with the most comfy day beds. It was my 40th that day! I had a migraine ( heat overload) but enjoyed it anyway! It must be so nice as Fl residents to be able to book these last minute cruises :-)

We were assigned a 4D (same cat. we booked). I was hoping for a room that's between the lifeboats, instead of right on top of them, but we didn't get it. That's ok though because I like the location and we've never had a verandah before, so that's a huge plus.

We booked this cruise back in February and were pleasantly surprised when the FL rates came out this week.

We are between lifeboats from the review I read, but my friend next to us is over lifeboat. Oh, well!

Thanks Scrapjacks! Welcome to the FE! Can you confirm if you put an age for Cole? It didnt come out on the board. Paula
