Our Daughter was always very outgoing at school and gymnastics, then she was soooo worried about going to the kids club when she was 6, and literally had herself worried sick! Once on board, you get to tour the clubs (open house format) and she will see just how fun they are and have her meet a councler right away and then she will be fine. The counclers are amazing at warming them up to them and new friends! I had to argue with my daughter on night 2, to leave the club to come to dinner as a family! My daughter now 17, basically goes to the teen club on the 1st night to meet people and then we dont see her much except for our "Family" dinner rule And of course to check in with us (she still doesnt get free run of the ship!) Just my opinion.

Thanks Niki! I'm really hoping that's the reaction she has too. You give me hope!

I noticed on the Facebook page you started a sign up document for the FE....do you want to be in charge of the FE list? If not I will have a dear friend set up a sign up document with a running list.

Thank you! TexKat and I are actually very close friends, our kids are the same age and best buddies so this cruise should be amazing for us all.

Has a fish extender list been started? We would both like to join.

Since all the adults in our group have already been to Nassau I thought about taking the kids on one of the glass bottom/mini-sub boat rides. Has anyone done one of these before?

Thanks!

Hi everyone! We are lucky enough to join all of you and are so excited!!! My oldest dd will be getting married on the cruise so we will have quite a gathering with us. My immediate family will include Me, dh, dd1 (getting married), dd2 (18), ds1 (15) and ds2 (3). We will also have lots of grandparents, dd's fiance's family, etc. It sounds like there will be quite a few on this cruise having VR's as well. Congratulations to everyone celebrating something!
