    Okay, John or Kevin asked about activities we'd like to see on the cruise during the chat Wednesday night.

    Well, from what I've been reading, I think we should open our own, private casino. I can bring the cards - aren't there some tables in the Roy and Walt Suites????

    The most obvious would be to record a podcast with all of us in the peanut gallery, but they probably thought of that already.

    Drink
    Find Will
    Moegeetoe Tasting
    Ringaround the Cistern
    Bar Tours with Corey
    Find your cabin after doing Bar Tours with Corey

    There have to be a few more activities to keep us occupied......

    I don't think we should expect them to do a live podcast from the cruise -- because that would be work and they want to have a good time just like the rest of us. :goodvibes

    I wasn't thinking doing a regular podcast but maybe a Q&A podcast that would be different. I doubt it would be broadcast live so they wouldn't have to do the production until after the cruise, and that is probably the labor intensive part.

    Another idea is doing a trivia challenge with the prize being dinner at Palo with the podcast crew?

    I love that idea!!!
    Only problem is my DH would think I was a nut wanting to dine with a bunch of "strangers". Oh well, I guess he can wait in the cabin for me. ;)

    sock puppets

    fashion show

    clown parade

    story time with Kevin

    primitive weapons and flammable liquids with Corey and Julie (which actually is in conjunction with Bar Tours "the attack of tequila" held in the duty free shop)

    ...

    classic activity tournaments while lame and goofy would be a lot of fun, like shuffle board, badminton, euchre, bridge, bingo, hide and seek, etc.

    I'm assuming that there will be coordinated meet and greets for all of the DIS boarders on the cruise? I know our group is so large that this will be difficult to coordinate.

    Not activities, but things I've been thinking about...
    It would be great if DU sent (or distributed) all of us some sort of tag/lanyard designation that we could wear throughout the cruise to identify ourselves to our fellow podcast cruisers. I saw it mentioned somewhere else - but I had totally thought of it too - it would be really cool to have magnet signs or something to put on our stateroom doors (if we wanted to of course) to designate ourselves as podcast cruisers.

    An activity idea would be an informal schedule of suggested group activities, i.e., XXX night in XXX bar at XXX p.m., adult cruisers should plan to meet up with other podcast cruisers. There could be one of these per day. They wouldn't require any hosting or coordinating, just a distribution of the proposed schedule so we could all connect if we wanted to.

    Personally, I'd love a tour of that suite - but that seems a little pushy and invasive. :rotfl:

    With green pixie unitards and sequined camo bikinis we certainly have the makings of a very interesting fashion show. Just add rum.....

    I think the audience would need the rum! It would help to numb the eyes...:lmao:

    Are you sure you don't mean: "Just add *run*"...as in as fast as you can, as far as you can?

    I'm always nervous to meet new people...even if i've "talked" to them online! It's nervewracking, but I know this cruise is going to be sooooooooooooooooooo much FUN!! I'm anxious to put faces to names/voices!

    I'm not nervous about meeting people -- but I am a bit self-conscious about what people will think when they meet me as I know we all kind of get this idea of what someone looks like in our heads...but then they are totally different in person. I was finally brave enough to post a photo a few days ago...of course, it was taken over 20 years ago...LOL.
