MPS516, Thanks for the logistics of how DCL works. We've only cruise RCCL and the process sounds about the same.

Thank you both for the dry cleaning info. My friend who is cruising with me said she was planning on packing like she does on a 7 day cruise. That sounded pretty logical to me. When we did a B2B with RCCL, I tried to pack shirts I could hand wash and line dry. Worked well and then sent out some capris and pants to dry clean. RCCL does not have washers and dryers on board. Not sure I really want to spend a ton of time washing clothes on a cruise anyway.

Just remember to keep clothes for dinner that night and the next day as it may be as late as 5 pm on day two that you get your pressed clothes back. Also spread all of your clothes out on the bed and take a picture. That way if you don't get a piece back you can show your attendant what you're missing.

So far what is the numbers for the FE & the Recipe exchanges?

For the FE- how does it work? Everyone in a cabin is gifted? How many days do I make gifts for?

For anyone interested:

Carol and I have booked the 9:00 am chocolate factory tour on Cozumel for the 26th. Anyone interested in doing the tour at the same time let us know as we can perhaps share a taxi.

Here is the website:

www.chocolateskaokao.com

Trip advisor gave this tour 5/5 stars and it is $10 per person. They accept Paypal.

Good to hear! We're really looking forward to it. Do you remember what a taxi cost you, by any chance?

I'd be interested in seeing it. Thanks!

It was not much - I'm thinking around $15 - but I'm not sure. At the time kids were free as well. It was a cheap fun thing to do - he was talking about adding hard candy as well soon.
