AHHH, there's plenty of New Orleans for all of us! Although... I don't know when KN and TNixon are getting into town... heehee

I don't know all the "rules" for posting in these folders, but I got an e-mail from Captain Marvin's regarding the state of things in Grand Cayman that I'd love to copy here. Is that OK? Anybody? Jim?

Lori,
Or reservation is with Grand Cayman Cruise Excursions (Buccaneer Stingray) and we've not heard anything yet. Could you please email me the letter as well. All of these places are close by. I just cant hold out hope we will dock in Cayman. It would be nice to know where we are going!
I just switched our hotel to the Holiday Inn Superdome and got the $99 rate includes transportation to the dock and full breakfast. I'm pretty happy. Also, just reserved our round trip shuttle transportation to/from airport at a grand total of $80 for 7 people. I'm very psyched about that!!!

Happy to forward you that e-mail, but need your e-mail address.

What shuttle company did you use? We haven't nailed ours down yet - we have a ton of people who will probably take cabs, but your plan sounds like a better one.

Oh-sorry, It is actually listed in at my name (author section). jenny@dynaquip.com
For the shuttle, I went to the flymsy website and used the link for ground transportation. http://www.airportshuttleneworleans.com/ I used the see prices button and was directed to a quote page. Put in all the arrive/depart info and out popped a price that saved us $35 each way. I figure these vans hold about 10-14 people, so if 7 of them are our group, we hopefully wont have to stop at too many places before our hotel.
Actually, I worked pretty hard yesterday and figured I saved our group over $600 between the shuttle/hotel/pier transport/full breakfast before and after. I thought it was a good day! Now I can spend more on little drinks w/umbrellas in them.
BTW-I saw on other posts that it was mentioned we may get to see cayman. I just cant fathom that!

My husband and I are going on this cruise. It is our first cruise. Do you happen to know what port we will stop at instead of Grand Cayman since it was devasted by the hurricane? hb

My husband called Carnival yesterday and asked what the itinerary was going to be for the 9/26 Conquest sailing - the rep said she had just talked to "service" and they said the port restrictions were removed and the Conquest was sailing her regular itinerary. (I had noticed that there were no updates on the Carnival website, but had to call just to confirm.)

WOOO-HOOO!!!! we're going to Grand Cayman! It won't be as pretty as it used to be, but that's ok.

See you guys on the Conquest in TWO WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're sailing the Conquest on 10/3, and I'm still thinking we won't go to Gayman, although Carnival is insisting that we will. I just can't think that they're ready yet....
I'm puzzled....

Well the Cayman's are a very rich island they probably got things together quickly. Our ship is going to Grand Cayman (Conquest Oct. 10th) Where is the island Gayman you speak of? Want to make sure I'm not lost on that one!
