I can get one to you before we leave port if you would like to use it on your door.
All that works for me! Since both of us are leaving TX several days before the cruise, I will have to be creative since I will have a computer to check the boards and messages, but no printer!!! The certificate thing sounds interesting, don't think I have ever seen one.

Anyway, back to work on getting everything on the 1st page post.

We are staying at the Crowne Plaza Friday night. We did it before on our last cruise with Disney and it worked out great. We like to get to the hotel the night before and relax. The next morning the hotel has shuttles running to port starting at around 9am.

I have added everything that I know of so far to post #14 on page 1 of this thread.

The meet and greet will not have a list to join perse, it is just for you to come to if you so choose.

The wine tasting does have a list right now which I am keeping up with, but CrusinLattas is in charge of the place and I hope making sure we have some glasses or whatever to taste with. Guess we need to talk Renee.

The FE exchange, I have put a deadline date of August 1 which is approximately 6 weeks before we sail. Right now it is a manageable group of cabins in the low 20's.

The postcard/recipe exchange I have a deadline date of August 14 which is a month before sailing.

If anyone has any other events they want on this list, please let me know what you want to keep up with. If you have a comment on the cutoff dates, let me know.

For my family our trip is 92 days from now!!! Since we will be in CA four days before the cruise.

Kathy, good call on the glasses! I will have a car in CA and can get cups before we sail. I'll also pack a cork screw in case we end up outside we would need both.

I was thinking of printing signs and leaving time and place blank to fill in once there - I will be without a printer as well. The kids and I will be in CA for a week - my DH flys in the day before we sail.

We are looking at the Crowne Plaza but haven't decided yet. I think DBF has points we can use elsewhere, but I like being able to get to the port early so we try for an upgrade so I'm leaning toward the Crowne Plaza.

Ride Share to Airport

I'm thinking we might want to share a ride to the airport so we can rent a car there vs. trying to get to the rental place near Galveston - it might be a cheaper and easier option than catching a taxi to the rental place. We are a family of 4 and will probably do a car pick up time around 1 PM. I think the car rental is still cheaper for us over the Southwest deal that just came out plus we would not need a ride home from the airport that way.

Just moved to this cruise this morning from a ressie we had made when we left the Fantasy in May!!

Our original cruise was for Alaska, but the deal and the dates for this PC Repo were just too good to pass up. Plus it is on my bucket list of cruises I wanted to do! Hopefully I will get to do Alaska in 2014 (hope they keep up that itinerary)

Cruising will be me (Kathy), DH (Le) and DD (Kati) who will be celebrating her birthday while on the cruise.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone. This will be our fourth cruise, our third for the Wonder plus the one we just did on the Fantasy.
Kathy please add me to the recipe exchange list.
What's the details for the wine event? Do I bring a bottle?

It is hundreds of dollars more to rent a car at the airport, than to rent it in Texas city or some other off-airport site. Check it out. We are saving a lot getting ours near Galveston.
