I love the sound of this one! But I talked to DH and the girls will be starting fifth grade (which is middle school here) in late August. He thinks we really shouldn't do that one So then I brought up the WBPC, that one is a bad time for him at work Just two weeks later and it'd be doable, but it's too early in May. We have a EC on the Fantasy scheduled for late August of that year, but I don't really have a great desire to sail on the new boats .

Anyway, we might end up switching our EC to an Alaskan. It costs more, but we could drive to Vancouver and spend a few days there! I don't know what to do

So glad he had a good outcome :whew:

My father was married to my beloved stepmom for 26 years when she died of cancer in 2010. She was a fantastic, fabulous woman who made my father a better man. My stepmom was also my mom's best friend. Crazy, huh? My mom and dad broke up when I was a toddler and my dad and stepmom didn't get together until I was a teen. There were no hard feelings between my folks, so I was very lucky that way

I'll talk to you! Even if it's not at the brunch.

You aren't missing much. We did it in April and thought it was really lame. Seeing the island from that view was neat but I could see that on youtube. There was no rush or thrill. I videoed it if you ever want to see it.

Glad there isn't any hurt feelings, it is so nice when everyone gets along. My one co-worker is currently married to the maid of honor in his first wedding and his first wife is married to his best man from his first wedding! They remain best friends as were maid of honor/best man for both weddings.
Co-worker married 1st wife.
Best man and maid of honor from coworker's wedding married.
Both couples got divorced and then married each other's ex-wife.

I have a question for Mandy or anyone else who might know. I know that I saw on here the prices (starting at prices ) for double occupancy in 11Cs on the itineraries released today. But I don't see it on my TA's website and I can't find the post here. Anyone have a link?

Also, anyone who is booking tomorrow, if you have the time and inclination, we'd love to get some prices on the Alaskan cruises for 2A2C (9,9) leaving after June 17th or later. Just if anyone has the time

I found the "starting at" prices. But I have a hard time believing that I'll find anything even remotely that cheap for when we could go

All I have to say is that Alaska is a must-do! I had no idea how over-the-top spectacular everything would be. Like really. Do it! Do it! (I'm chanting haha)

Thank you - after we realised we couldn't do it we watched videos on Youtube. Thanks for the offer though

The WBTA prices are very good! £1,668 for 11C - 2 adults. That's cheaper then we have paid for this EBTA!

I agree. We used miles for all of our flights this trip.


So, I took the plunge and booked one of the 7 night Southern Caribbean itineraries. Originally booked September but changed to October. The rates were not that bad and I've never been to any of the ports except San Juan.

I've just ordered our T shirts for embarkation day. Thanks to whoever mentioned tagxedo and Mickey head shapes, which gave me the inspiration for the front, and thanks to Mandy for sharing the artwork that I used for the back.

EDIT: Actually I think credit for the logo on the back should go to Val shouldn't it?
