We are traveling with another couple and their girls, 7 and 10.
I've never done FE exchange but thinking it might be a good time to jump in as this looks like a small group. Oh, and did I mention we are flying SWA, so we could bring SIX suitcases? yeah, no excuses!

Wondering, what are everyone's plans for the islands? Has anyone booked excursions yet? And if so, what appealed to you? We've done both the turtle farm and stingray city in Grand Caymen. Wondering what's next.
We're doing the Kittiwake Sail and Snorkel on Grand Cayman. We had this excursion booked on our last cruise to the western Caribbean (11/2012) but because of rough seas and the need to tender at GC, we skipped Grand Cayman and went to Costa Maya. We hope this time we get to do Grand Cayman. We've heard great things about the reefs there so we really hope we get to experience it this time. We're also doing the Fury Sail and Snorkel on Cozumel which we did last time and loved it!!!

Last time in GC we did the turtles. I think this time we are just going to beach it. Im sure we will soon decide on one of the clubs on Seven Mile beach unless anyone has a better suggestion.

I am up in the air about Coz - between Chankanaab, Xcaret, Xel-Ha - or just beaching it there as well ....
We aren't celebrating anything except the fantastic Florida resident rate for this cruise!!!

Hello! Does anyone know what nights semi-formal and Pirate Nights will be? I have guesses, but nothing concrete. We've never done a 5 night sailing before.

Thanks,
Kelly

Not sure off the top of my head about semi-formal but Pirate night is Cozumel I believe.

That is unless you're Gold level or higher and have already booked, or are a maniac like me and stay up 'till midnight to jump and then sleep in. (right, like the boys will let that happen! )

Just a friendly reminder. Check in when you can. I'll be back tomorrow to report.

Ok thank you! That's what I was thinking as well. I am thinking Semi will be the first sea day.

BTW - I am Kelly travelling with my husband and daughter, age 2. We live in FL and grabbed a FL resident rate! My husband is very excited to go on the "new" Magic since it's been several years since we've sailed her and she ties with the Fantasy as our favorite ship in the fleet.

Can't wait!
