This sounds like a great cruise for folks who want to do the Western Caribbean.

Hmmm, June 4th is my anniversary. :-)

Here is the itinerary.

Day1 Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- 5pm
Day 2 Half Moon Cay 8am 6pm
Day 3 At Sea -- --
Day 4 George Town, Grand Cayman 7am 4pm
Day 5 Costa Maya, Mexico 11am 11:59pm
Day 6 At Sea -- --
Day 7 Key West, Florida 7am 6pm
Day 8 Fort Lauderdale, Florida 8am --

The prices also beat anything on the major online sites by at least $150. Plus having your tips covered and a free night at the Pinnacle Grill. This is a deal.

Take care,
Mike(Who will begin begging now).................................. Betty is watching me type this and is mad because I'm making her look like the bad guy.............................it isn't hard. ouch!

Well, Sylvia and I are working on variouos things that we will want to do as a group for those that wish and hopefully it will be a great cruise with old and new friends and even newer friends that we don't know about yet. <G> The perks are really great on this one and I have to say they have really put together somethng that I haven't seen before especially with the pricing be so much lower than you seems to be able to get anywhere else! Hopefully this will have lots of CM folks onboard al all will be wearing their CM shirts. MaryLou, hope you have a bunch to sell!

It sometimes takes me awhile hunting... but when we do choose one, they are normally very good deals. And even more importantly... they're always VERY good times cruising with cruisemates friends!

This one is an EXCELLENT package! And I hope lots of CM folks jump onboard!


and yes, it does sail from Ft Lauderdale. lol

Another temptation. I usually don't plan to cruise in the summer months, but going along with Jim and Sylvia, and knowing that I should be in Florida at that time anyway makes this very tempting. Of course there's also that Hawaii cruise that I'm still trying to figure out how to do. :-) Decisions decisions, decisions. How fun!!!!

Isn't temptation a wonderful thing?

Until the end of Jan. the deposit for Get Lei'd Version 3.0 has been reduced to $100/person... so if you are considering it.. NOW is the time to book!

Sue.. HAL is considered a "Premium Brand" line, and the Zuiderdam is one of its newer ships. While it's reputation is that it draws "an older" crowd, its made strides in reducing the average age of its passenger with this new set of "Vista Class" ships.

Here's an article about the line that appeared on our home page recently

As Kuki said, HAL is known for the older crowd but they have been making great strides in changing this image and the average age has gone down considerably especially on this Vista Class ship. There are now quite a few of the younger set sailing onboard these ships and the activities have become more youthful. No wild parties onboard but people do have a great time and get 'playful' <> I think it would be great for as many Cruisemates as possible to come and enjoy a great cruise on a beautiful ship at a fantastic price. If I get my way the entire ship will be watching the CM'ers and wanting to join in all the fun and become CM'ers themselves.While you may have to put up with me, the good part is my wife will also be there and Sylvia is an entertainment show all in herself without meaning to be. <VBG>

Sue, I was born old so this would probably be a good fit for me.

As for what Jim says about Sylvia, he's absolutely right on. She will make anyone feel young. You would love her. (Jim's a nice guy too by the way)

Folks, I just got through talking to the TA that is handling this for us and already we have 6 cabins booked today alone and probably another 2 that might commit tonight. In addition we may have another surprise guest and friends and that could up the number by another four or five cabins between just them alone! This is a great ship with a great intinary with some really fantastic options tossed in for free such as the free dinner in the Pinnicle Specialty Dining, (Hopefully we will be able to do this all together), pre-paid tips, open bar and free hor dours at a party, and free use of beach gear at the private island including snorkeling gear and even the Banana boat ride! That is all just a start and we will also be doing other special events that we can work out together such as door decorating contest, ship building, tug-o-war and anything else we can figure out. Trivia, treasure hunt who knows, the fun could be endless!
Jim
