Hey everyone! It is now two months until our Cruisemates group sails off to the Western Caribbean onboard the CCL Glory! I am thinking that we can set up our own personal chat that will be at 8PM Fridays and last until the regular 9PM chat. Just log into the chat room and we will be there! I would like to discuss with everyone what they want to do and any ideas they might have. This is really a "Group" cruise and we are going to do what the group wants to. I have also been in touch with the CD onboard the Glory, Mark Price, who is aware of us and looking forward to meeting everyone. On the Cruisemates Group page there are instructions on how to download a poster for your door and I recommend that everyone do so and place it on your cabin door. There is also a door decorating contest that we will be looking at on every sea day and the winner will be announced on the last day. That means that each seaday they will be judged and assigned points and the last or third day at sea the winner with the most points will win. That way you can gather new things all the time to improve your door! <G> Use only things you create yourself and none of those store-bought things. <G> Also please be respectful of the steward and used tape that can easily be removed without leaving sticky stuff all over for them to have to clean. We want the stewards and crew to really remember us for all the good reasons.
Now lets here a rollcall and if you want to announce your cabins you may do so but you are under no pressure to do so here on this public board. I am also looking for suggestions! How many are up for a tug-o-war?
Laura B and Patty N from Laconia NH checking in. We are currently assigned Cabin #7323 on Empress deck. I will have to put MissPatty to work on the art work for the door. Count me in for the tug o war and I am sure Patty will want to join in too.

George and I will be flying in on the 10th from Chicago, O'Hare, hopefully we'll have time to spare...At this point we still plan on taking the Carnival transfer from MCO to the port, so don't let the ship sail without us. The rest of the family that is going are on Sprit Airlines and have an earlier flight, so they should be onboard nice and early, although they have a later flight out at the end of the cruise.
We are in cabin 7442, an aft balcony cabin. Have had a few of these on Royal CAribbean, so I'm hoping this will be simular. My daughter in law just called, and they have been assigned a cabin up on deck 9, so they did well with booking a guarantee.
So far, I've booked the dolphin swim for Cozumel, so that should be a lot of fun, kids did too, so I still have to pick out an excursion or two, or play it by ear when we get there. Lets hope we have wonderful weather, no storms!
Donna, you have my cell phone # so if you are running late call and I will stand on the gangway and hold the boat for you. <VBG> Looking forward to see so many old friends again and meeting old friends for the first time too.
Hey Jim! My boyfriend and I will be joining you on this Glory B cruise on Sept.10th! We were assigned room 1426 in the basement! This will be a free cruise for us and we look forward to meeting you all!
PS- This is my first post for this sailing, what have I missed other than a dooor decorating contest? Definately count us in on that one!
