Hi, my husband and I are travelling with our son who will be over 3.5 years old when we travel (4 in June) and we were stuck with choosing excursions. Finally we decided on the Grand Cayman Duck boat tour and Cozumel Beach Break.

This is our first cruise and we are very very excited. Have a great cruise.

We are flying in the day before too, from Phoenix. We are staying at the Hotel Galvez (or whatever the Disney hotel is there). We are in cabin 8044..so we are neighbors. ) This is the first ever cruise for all of us and our kiddos have no idea that we are doing anything...we will tell them when we get to the ship. ) We have a 6 yr old DD, a 4 yr old DD, and a soon to be 3 yr old DS.

I am so sorry to hear about your news! You are in our prayers. And like Mary said, please let us know if we can do anything at all!

[QUOTE=texfinn;47411553]We are excited too!!! Our friends are joining in too - I'll provide their info on a separate post. now to start planning! Have you built a spreadsheet to track? Some folks use posting 1 or 2 (edited) to list it out but you need to own that posting. I think last cruise the guy used Google Docs so everyone could view. So excited and not much time! 60 DAYS


I am more than happy to use google doc. I will continue to input everyone's info and provide the link soon. But I will not be able to let you know how we will split until the cutoff date, which is one more month. It will more than likely be by location. Thanks for the help and info. I appreciate all the help I can get!

Okay, here is where I need your input..
how far in advance should the deadline be to join (So I can the final list out to you all and we can start preparing)?
Are there any rules you all want to put in place?
I did see on another thread the group met briefly on the first night, so for the rest of the trip they had faces to place with the gifts received. Is this something you all would want to do?
Thanks SO much for working with me on this. I am all EARS!!

My family and I are first time cruisers and would love to participate!

Captain Marvin's Private Charter

I'm just putting this idea out there for anyone who might be interested. We used Capt. Marvin's last trip, and plan to do so again, but they do have private charters that are not that much more than their regular trips. Basically, a group of ten (we are already 4 so we just need 6 more) gets a private boat with 2 or 3 stop snorkeling tour that includes the stingray city sandbar for $600 ($60 per person) or $750, which includes a lunch from Subway on the boat. Here is the latest email I received answering some of my questions:

Hi Mary,
I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed your tour with us in December!

Whether on a private charter or a regular tour with us, we always try to go to the least crowded areas for both the stingrays and for snorkeling. You are correct that a half-day (three-stop) charter with lunch is $750 for up to 10 people (it’s a box lunch from Subway—sandwich, drink and chips).

We have a shuttle bus to take you from our office near the cruise ship terminals to our private dock, and it’s about a 12-minute bus ride. I would be happy to waive the transportation fee if you decide to do either the three-stop charter with lunch or the three-stop without lunch. Thanks!
Ruth


If anyone is interested in doing such a trip, please send me a pm, and from there we can figure out how to handle payment, etc.

Capt. Marvin's cancellation policy: If for any reason your ship cannot stop here on its scheduled day, or arrives too late for you to take our tour, you will not be charged. If you need to cancel your reservation for personal reasons, please do so at least 24 hours in advance of the date of our tour in order that you are not charged. If your ship arrives on time and you do not show up for the tour, you will be charged.

I have a word doc that lays out the different tours offered if anyone is interested. The others are more expensive.

LMK!!

I would love to add you guys to the FE list! I will try and post a updated list tonight or tomorrow with those we have added in the past few days. And if I can figure out google doc (as I am a nurse and am not the brightest when it comes to computers ) I will try and input everyone info on that and post the link.
We will be probably be splitting the FE based on location. So if you know your cabin number you can start to prepare for those close to you.

We are excited you guys are sailing with us! Can't Wait to meet you all!
