Wine Tasting

Thank you Mark for posting the Navigators! After reading them I'm thinking we want to be up at the Panama Party by the pools going through the Canal. Maybe we plan our wine tasting party on another sea day when less is going on after Mexico. Thoughts?

Having never done this before it's hard for me to really know. Anytime, as long as it's not too early in the morning, is fine with us. It would be nice to not be rushed.

My mom and I was suppose to be going on the West bound Panama Canal cruise this coming Monday, but unfortunately, we are cancelling it tomorrow. My 53 year old husband died a week ago, and I just can't leave my dog (like my child) for 2 weeks and being out of the country, makes it worse....and not to mention leaving my house empty for that period of time.

The WBPC cruise had a private FB page. Had a contact for the FE and a link on here that had a meet for the DISboards people....and all kinds of other meets....like game night......shots night, etc.

just seeing if this cruise sounds like a fun bunch of people.

I've seen some states mentioned previously, Like Ohio and tennessee......I'm in Indiana...are there any other hoosiers out there?????
I too am looking to possibly cruise after having to cancel WBPC. I think I know you from the blog. My family as well as Anne's were down and out today as we bid our DIS/FB friends farewell. Alas though we did go as "Flateys " (dIS version of flat Stanley) on the cruise. They made one for me, my DGD Shelby, Anne and Richard. Already rec'd photos of our Flateys at the DIS Meet and Greet. Such an awesome thing to do for us. They are taking us along then sending pictures back of all the activities we do. even the kids jumped in and made clothes for us to wear. Thanks for letting me tag along till we get medical clearance and can possibly join the group on the cruise.

I'll be watching this cruise and the next WBPC for possibilities... We will need to get medical clearance to cruise, etc... It's great to look ahead. We were pretty down as the cruise we were to be on left port. Sharan and I compared notes throughout the day...

With our first full day being a sea day I think a mid morning DIS Meet and Greet would be a great idea. We would actually have time to chat instead of rushing off to the safety drill.

A sea day after MR would seem like a good time for wine sharing get together as well, any of the pre canal days. We are probably going to have to check with DCL to see where they would let us hold the function, while they are lax with their BYOB policy we don't want to push it. On one of our previous cruises they reserved Sessions for our group a couple hours, mid afternoon on a sea day.

We had so many participants in the wine tasting on our previous PC cruise, that one of the cruisers was able to get Rockin' Bar D for us. She had all of the bottles lined up on the bar from sweetest to driest with tasting notes attached that people provided with their bottle of wine. This cruiser was really into wine. I have no idea how you can get this venue though. ( I can't remember the name of this lounge on the Wonder).

Bingo

Because people will ask about Bingo.

Normally I let "little kids" & other folks in wheelchairs pet him. But when its a ship Full of kids i don't let anyone.

He works for the "petting" that i give him. If i let everyone pet him, He wont work for me. (sorry)

I'm a trainer of Service dogs.

For FE "gifts" Toys are always good lol. He cant have "food" of any type. (his tummy)

Bingo is an Australian Labradoodle.

But i know a Dog that you can pet. I have a photo of me petting him. :-)

I did not know you were an actual trainer. I did know from reading that service dogs were not to be treated like pets. I know even with my dogs people ask me before they approach them and I appreciate that. Thank you for the education and I do so look forward to actually meeting y'all in September.

When we had our "special event" at sessions they did not charge a corkage but we all pitched in a couple dollars to tip the 2 cast members who were there helping us.

Igt

I just got a notice from our TA at Small World that their is an IGT rate announced. I assume the others will be out as well. As soon as my husband gets home from choir practice, guess what we're talking about!

Isn't it strange that they have it out before the PIFD I am seriously considering this but we really want VGT

The ship is still not very full. I'm with you on not wanting an inside room for two weeks. I'm sure they will open up other levels - hopefully before final payment is due!

I couldn't wait - I decided to go ahead with the IGTY - worst case I would think we could upgrade at the port unless the ship really fills up between now and then. SO - our cabin number will change and we will need to relink our 2nd seating dining - the great news is I saved around $2k making the move and then moving my OBC and discount to the B2B CC cruise we are taking in 2014 -so double win! There were just too many things we could do with the savings!

Also I asked about getting a space reserved for wine tasting on our cruise - bottom line is if we reserve it early they will charge us for the spot - if we talk to them once we get on the ship we can probably get it for free - today I'm all about saving money! Why don't we plan it for Deck 7 and then move it to inside if space is available.

Are many folks on here probably going IGTY or looking to get an upgrade at the port? If so, maybe we can have a sheet at our meet where we can get the updated information on everyone for F/E groups and Wine Tasting groups etc. - that way if we get a location in the ship I can send out a text on the wave phone.

It looks like everyone I have heard feedback from likes the idea of a meet on our day at sea after we leave LA - I'm thinking around 10 AM? That way it is not too early and folks will probably have brunch at PALO that day so they will be done in time for that.
