Camelia.. .
Maybe we'll have to add a prize category... Best attempt/worst costume <G>


I won't be packing a costume. Think it will be fun to pick up "odds and ends" along the way, and see what I end up with.

Just a reminder to folks on this crossing that they need to get an absentee ballot to vote in the 8 November election. I can't get one here in Seattle until 19 October.

Hi all,
I'm very computer illiterate and have not been able to find this thread even though I've been looking for months.
We are a group of 6 and will be joining all of you on this cruise.
Our names are Julie and Jerry Hogan FL
Rickey & Mark Goldin FL
Rachel Jacobs NJ
and me Gladys Condron FL

As soon as I can find some pictures I will send it to Kuki. I will be on the chat boards this Sunday as Kuki sent instructions and hopefully we'll all be there.
Looking forward to meeting everyone and joining your festivities.

Gladys

The six of us have requested early seating, also preferring 6:15; now we'll just have to wait and see.

Tweety, I"ll be in the front row except for when there is a comedian. I wouldn't want him to be bothered by the glow from my head. Actually, it may be a halo.

Hi ya Becka!!

Glad you posted. Another Canadian here. I'm from Calgary.

Should be very exciting for you to join the ship in Europe. LOTS to see and do.

Say Hi to John and Heidi for us. We've sailed with him several times before. Just tell him Kuki and the gang are coming..... and looking forward to seeing them again.

re: the halloween party

Kuki,

do you know yet when you are having the costume party? is it the same day as halloween? did they assign you a room yet?

you mention your theme "Roman on the seas".....
are you having 'other' catagory prizes......... ain't no way hubby wil wear a toga!
: )

(I do have a costume,, kinda that will fit the period, although its *heavy*,, either that or I bring just a hat....... & wear cruise clothing.)

< hey I like to plan ahead..... already planning halloween on a cruise ship '06>

Muffyn.. we don't have a time and place set yet... but we are planning on doing it Oct. 31 for Halloween. We'll work around/with whatever the ship is doing that day. Hopefully we can coordinate something with John Heald, Becka and the cruise staff (Becka.. you listening? <G>)

The theme.. "Roman the Seas" is open to all sort of interpretation <G> so you certainly don't have to stick to togas, gladiators, etc. Heck .. you can come as a pizza or a pope, or a dirty old man.

Though I called the prizes "wonderful" I'm not sure anyone should spend alot of time or effort lugging heavy costumes... the prizes aren't "THAT GOOD" <VBG>

Default Re: Re: Rome to Ft. Lauderdale on Liberty.. U OUT THERE??

ok right now I am FUMING!!!!!!!

I was checking with the airlines about something & found out I am NOT on ANY plane to or from this cruise!

MONTHS ago I made arrangements with Nancy (TA for cruismates) about the flights, because I had a deviation coming home. I was given flight information & had called the airlines to choose my seats etc etc. even have confirmation from airlines to BOTH my booking numbers!
what in gods sakes happened???????
I am soooooo FURIOUS that this happened and was never kept apprised by any changes, let alone I have NO airline to go on!!!
for this to have happened is beyond,,,,, well,,,,,,, you fill in the next sentence............
plus for the TA to be out of town, & of course "I" can't talk to carnival.
I am also royaly P'od, because I had seats I WANTED,, when I talked to flights a couple weeks back they would have a hard time putting anyone NEXT to each other on a flight now

Well... god only knows what could have happened to a confirmed reservation!! Did the airline say if the flight was cancelled?

Nancy is back in town, so you should send her an e-mail and call her tomorrow AM! Hopefully they'll get it straightened out ASAP!!!

Hi Everyone,
How did the chat room turn out? I fully intended to participate. Even worked out the time difference. It was going to be one in the afternoon for me on Monday. Then I got a supply teaching job so I headed out to teach the Year ones instead. Ah well I earned another shore excursion.

Default Re: Re: Rome to Ft. Lauderdale on Liberty.. U OUT THERE??

ok, here is what is going on with my carnival Air Problem.. for those of you WHO booked Carnival air,, you reallly need to check your flights!

I decided to book the air through Carnival ( we drive to ports,,,,, I didn't
want to worry about flights, transfers etc).
price looked right & it saved $100 in transfer from airport to port.
now this was over a year ago......
in April we decided to do a deviation & fly home from Orlando (staying a few
days after the trip). took Carnival a while to get back to TA, but it was
all set up. august 2nd I decided to call airlines for seat assignment.
nooooo problem I got seats I wanted & they sent email confirmation. I was
dealing with 2 diff airlines. the one from florida told me they were getting
pretty full to be able to get 2 seats together, so I was glad I did call!.
now, yesterday, my daughter in looking for flights home from Orlando ( they
are meeting us down in orlando for the after cruise, hit disney etc). she
called me & said there was NO flight # that I gave her. hmmmmm. Ok I thought
maybe they just changed the time it left, & had to change flight #????
so I called continental... they confirmed there was no flight of that
#,,,,,,, BUT I also didn't have a flight of any kind! huh??!! I just called
a few weeks ago & got seats assigned! NOpe, they said,,,, seems like
Carnival never paid for tix, so they cancelled out reservation. (now, wait
a MINUTE I paid the balance for this cruise the 1st part of august!!!,, what
tdid they do with my $$$$).
soooo now the panic is starting to climb up my back. I call Delta, to
check on my flights & SAME story! reservation was not there anymore. now
this is at 11pm ,, & NO ONE to call!!!!!!!!I am definately Po'd, trying to
figure who to blame........ the TA got a reallly irritated phone message.
now this morning, TA calls back she talked to Carnival...... Carnival said
Delta flight was intact..... even gave her the file #.... (hmmmmm I thought,
they coudl NOT find it last night).. the orlando flight home was definately
gone......... no reason why carnival did NOT call TA. they offered me a
nonstop at 9 in the morning (eek). I told her to ask them whats the best
connecting flight later in the day,,,,,,, of course Carnival was not letting
her get through, with all the storm stuff going on. ( I later decided to
take a flight the next day , when my daughter is heading back,,, which I
needed ride home from airport anyway)
meanwhile I call Delta to CONFIRM the ressie.. oh yea its there but NOT paid
for, & only Carnival can say when it has to be paid for before they cancel
it! ( delta did not have access to that info,,,,,,huh??) I asked them *WHY*
did my other ressie dissapeared.....after much searching they said it was
cancelled becasue carnival did not pay for tix...... it was cancelled
8/23!!!! (ok, huh? again? I paid carnival weeks before for these tix where
is my $$$) ALSO they said the NEW reservation # I had was JUST made that
morning...... hmmmmmm. I asked if I could reserve seats.......
again...... ok, but they couldn't guarantee it will hold (blah blah blah)...
funny, I was still able to pick the SAME seats as before...
needless to say, it has been strongly suggested I keep checking on these
rservations every couple days to see IF they still are there!
*I am sooooo ticked*
when the TA called back Carnival, they denied making a NEW booking
today,that the OLD one was always intact.........what a bunch of bull..
btw, they also charged the TA $100 more for the deviation than they
originally billed!

muffin> needs a vacation........... now only to get there........

Glad you finally got your flights taken care of. I didn't book Carnival air, but checked on my reservations anyway. Everything was fine. It would be kind of a shock to get to the airport and find out you didn't have any reservations.

Sandy,
Chat room was busy last night. Kuki said he'd have a couple more before the cruise, so maybe you'll be able to drop by.

I did book Carnival air, but with no deviation, so I guess I'll just have to wait till they mail me my tickets.

Hi! All I found you all at last. I've been trying, like Gadys for a long time. I first time Kuki dropped into cruise critic. Now lets see if I can figure out how to post here

Vitals: flying in 10/22 am from Flint, MI via dublin on the same flight with Paige and Tommy. We have 6:15 seating and I think Doris1930 had her TA put us together. I sent a request to mine. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

HowD Melody and Bill... Glad you found us. Consider this thread your "summer home" <G>

We've also requested the 6:15 dinner seating. Hope we'll get it, then there will be a bunch at least eating dinner at the same time.

If you would be so kind as to send me your mailing address and your real names, I will send you some cute patriotic nametags I have been making for everyone to wear to the Bon Voyage party and or the get together we planned for the promenade deck 2:00 pm on Tuesday--first sea day. CruisinTom and I are also hosting a get together at a night club called the Living room in Rome for Sunday night at around 8:30 pm. We hope to see you there too if you are coming to Rome early.

Welcome aboard T. Glad you found us. Hope we'll get to meet you onboard. I'm not from NM, but you have a beautiful state.

For everyone... One of our cruisemates has volunteered to put together an onboard "Phone Book". If you'd like to be included send your NAMES and SCREENNAME and CABIN # ----- to LGriggs548@aol.com

We'll then distribute these to everyone listed at the first get together.
