Default Glory 6/30/07 whos coming

Hi everyone,
I do have a post on the roll call thread and have met many great people. But we are looking for more fun people to join us there.

So I decided to put out a roll call here for this cruise. so if your coming too, please let me know or jump over to the roll call thread on this board and join us there.

There is still plenty of time to get aquainted with each other.

kathy

Connie, i am so glad to meet you.
I live in Fruitland park Florida, which is not far from Orlando.
we are originally from Oregon.

It will be me, my husband Greg and our oldest daughter Marie and her husband Jerry and 2 kids, Ana 16 and Andy who will be 13 just a few days after the cruise is over.
So we are 6 in all.

You have a nice big group coming, that should be great for you!!!
Is this your first cruise with Carnival??

looking foward to posting a few times and getting aquinted with you,
we will soon be on the ship. YIPPEE!!!

Kathy;
Good to hear from yop again. Wish we were on the Glory again with you. We will have to wait a couple of years to do that one. Have fun and let us know the good and the bad you experience on your first Carnival cruise.

Hi Gary,
good to hear from you again too. we are very excited to go. I cant believe it is so close. I sent a copy of the capers and sent to my daughter who is coming too. She and her kids loved reading them, so you helped another family besides me and my husband.

I have connected with a few families from other places and we are having a meet the first day so will have some new friends on board too.

I will post a trip report after we get back,
thanks again for all your help.
kathy

Hi Connie,
my grandaughter who is coming just turned 16 yesterday, maybe our GKDS will meet? My grandson is 12, going on 13 the end of July.

We have a balcony room too but we are forward on the starboard side I believe. Cant remember the number off hand, it is 6 something??

We got out docs about 10 days ago!!
that really got us excited.

That is great you have some first time cruisers with you. I love to watch someone experience a cruise for the first time.
I always figured with each passong cruise I would be less excited but it has been just the opposite. I am more excited about #15 than I was #1 or #5 etc... Maybe because I know how much fun I will be having.


You said some of you are from Florida, which part of Florida??
I'm in Fruitland Park, near Leesburg.
90 minutes drive to the port and about an hour to WDW.

Later,
kathy

Default Good morning

Good morning Connie,
well another week is ending and that makes us one week closer to the cruise!!!
We did book excusrions at every posrt accept Nassau, but my mind is a blank as to what they were.

I know some where we had a jungle hike and then I think at Belize we have a city and ruins tour. Then somewhere there is a dune buggy ride, beach day planned.
Nassau we have been to lots of time, so we will just shop around since we arnt there for too many hours anyway.

Are any of you doing any excursions??
I have never been to Belize or Cozumel before.

one prior cruise Cozumel was scheduled but then the hurricanes hit and they diverted us to Costa Maya instead.
I love seeing new places.

Hi Connie,
hope all is well with you. we are getting excited now. i just got the dog sitters all lined up which was the last detail to finish up.

Now we are set.

I have met others who are coming and we are meeting the first day.
I hope you will join us.
It will be at 3:00 near the doors to the buffet. some will have on Lei's and others beads so we came find each other.

I know you dont know the others but just ask for kathy and at least we could meet up for a minute or two. I am the one with the loudest voice that carries like a foghorn. Ha Ha !!



we are also having an adult meet the first night in the Piano bar at 10;00 P.M. so you could also show up there and say hello. again we will have beads or leis on so we will be easy to find.

hope to see you there,
kathy
I hope you will come,

kathy

Hi Connie,
I really dont know, this is my first Carnival cruise. There are 3 couples that have done Carnival on another site, maybe they will know. I'll post the question to them.
I hope they do something, that would be great.

I know how confusing it can be looking for family on a ship.
Maybe they would like to meet you where our meet is?? Unless you want to meet for lunch. It was just a thought.
I will try and post o photo of us in the next couple of days so if you miss the meets, perhaps you will still see me and say hello.

As you can tell, one of my favorite things on a cruise is to meet new people.
I'll le tyou know if anyone knows about the 4th.

kathy

Connie,
I just heard back from someone who cruised 2 years ago on the Glory over the 4th and she said they had a huge deck party with music, snacks a conga line etc.... She had a blast.

so maybe we will have a deck party too.

Kathy

I will be posting a trip report within 2 weeks of my return. I will have company for a few days afterwards so wont get it done for a few days.

I take a small notebook with me and each night I write down the days events for my report, so I wont forget things.

Connie, 1 DAY TO GO !!!

Less than one day now, I am so glad it is almost here!!!

hope to see you at the meet.
If you see a lady with turquoise colored hair, that is my daughter Marie. I wont be far away, just walk up and say hello and have her point me out.

She uses funky hair colors to keep the attention of her students she teaches. They are mentally and physically disabled kids. They just love the bright colors.
Me I would be too embarassed to wear them but she has done it for years now.

She looks like a punk rocker or a party animal and she is not. She is just an average mom of 2 greart kids who has weird hair. Ha Ha!!

Anyway if you see her in the terminal or around the ship, just say hi and she will point me out if I am nearby,

kathy

Connie, so sorry we didnt get the chance to meet.


Gary I will post a trip report by the end of the week, I hope.
I still have company so it will take a bit longer to do.
Unfortunately things didnt go as we had hoped. we did have a good time, but not an awesome time we usually have.

excursions were great!!

will post a report soon with photos,

kathy
