Hi we are sailing out of Miami on the Western Itinerary on the Carnival Paradise on Jan.11 2004. We would like to meet up with some other couples and have some cruise mates. Feel free to drop us a line.
Party of 7 joining everyone on this cruise as well... 4 third-timers (myslef, wife, and in-laws), 1 second-timer (3 year old "souviner" of our first cruise back in Feb 2000), and 2 first timers (one of which being ANOTHER "souviner" from our Imagination cruise of December 2001). And to answer the obvious question, NO, we do not plan on having any additional "souvenir's" come home after this trip beyond some bottles of cheap Kaluha from Cozumel!
Paradise - Feb 2000
Imagination - Dec 2001
Paradise - Jan 2004
My wife and I will be on this sailing also. Just booked yesterday. We are from the Milwaukee, Wi area. We have 3 daughters staying behind this trip. This will be my 4th cruise and Kathis 5th. Looking forward to some fun in the sun.
We'll be there for our 15th anniversary. Would anyone else like to bring cans of infant formula? There is a group on Roatan called Familias Saludables (Healthy Families). They help women infected with HIV avoid passing the virus to their babies through breastmilk, but they desperately need donations of infant formula. Honduras has a really high rate of HIV infection, and this is one way to help. The program director, Valerie Nelson, says her office is two blocks from the cruise ship dock, or she has offered to meet the ship.
Hopefully we can meet up with you guys on the ship!!
Where are you from?
What do you guys look like, maybe you can send us a pic, and we'll do the same, that way we will know who to look for!!
You can email us at email@example.com
We look forward to hearing from you!
If you need any info on excursions, etc. We can help you out!!

Hey cat, I just found your post about Familias Saludables in Roatan.
Good for you - I bet it felt GREAT to do something positive there!
Did you end up dropping stuff off with Valerie? I've got 8 cans of powdered formula so far, and some baby clothes... did you drop off at the office, or did Valerie come to you? Did you donate to the orphanage as well? I'm trying to decide if I have enough space to do both... or for that matter, did you see more pressing needs while in Belize City? Was customs ok - can I just talk to the purser ahead of time, are there forms I need to fill out, etc?
Any thoughts you have to share - I'm all ears!
