Jackie, Angela, and LIAM - oh, how I wish we could do that! My sister (Hez from the board) will be with us as well, but we have to keep our flight as is.
Our connections are bringing us into Halifax so late that night that we've had to book a hotel and stay in Halifax, then drive home the next morning.
So close, yet so far....DARN!

Unless you meet her at the port or airport on the 19th when Donna disembarks, there is no chance to meet up with her.

What does one wear in the winter in Florida? We are spending 3 days on the beach so I need daytime and nighttime wear.

I also need to know if it is warmer or cooler around Orlando?

Thanks

Luanne, I am about 50 miles south west of Orlando. I wear shorts most of the time. We do start to get some cold nights in December but the days are usually in the 70's. So plan on shorts/capris and slacks. Bring a bathing suit too. I swim year round but then I am from the north and for me it is like summer in NH. Comfy shoes for walking and sandals too.

Goodmorning Cruisemates, in 5 weeks and 5 days Liam, Ron and I hit Floridian grounds.

If you cannot make it to the CFD, there is an option on nov. 19th to meet and greet in Fort Lauderdale. Angela, Ron and I arrive in FLL in the afternoon and stay overnight in the Renaissance. Liam is already there at the Hilton as of the 17th.

We cross oceans, can you cross your country?

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I just returned from seven glorious days aboard the "Legend", and what a BIG surprise when we returned and checked this posting! The list is growing, and growing, and more of my favorite folks will be there as well. I can't wait to attend and meet, face to face, with y'all! Liam, Beenie, Jackie, Trip, and now Luanne and Jim, as well as all our wonderful friends from right here in Central Florida. Come on down y'all. The weather and company is going to be OUTSTANDING!

Welcome Home Ken and Vita!!

When I made our plans to come to Florida, I went on line and registered with the Vistors center in Daytona, since we will be there for 4 days. I usually do this to get tips on food, and sometimes coupons and attractions.

Today I received a mailbox full of hand addressed envelopes from every mom and pop motel up and down the Atlantic coast.

I told them on line that we had a hotel, but I guess they either read it wrong, or people are really hurting. I went through it trying to see if there was anything but motels, but no luck. Some of the deals were really good. "Stay with us, and eat free"

I need to register with the Orlando one. Does anyone know if the Titanic thing is still there. I read about it on some reviews, but did not know if it was something that was there all the time, or temp.

We are trying to see and do as much as we can in a short time.

Hi Luanne,
Try this link....we've never been to this one but did see an exhibit several years ago at the museum in St. Petersburg that was fascinating.

Titanic The Experience

See you soon!

Luanne,

A few years back there was a marvelous Titanic Exhibition at Sea World in Gatlinburg.

Now they've opened in Pigeon Forge a fascinating walk thought a mock up of the Titanic. You can even walk out on the Bridge on the cold April night and reach out and touch the ice.

There is one similar to this at Branson Mo., but I understadn this is the best and I can certainly see why. If there's one where you go, I've found that they are definitely is the price of admission!

I guess the traveling one and this one are two different things, but this looks good too.

Has anyone heard from Ken and Vita. Just wouldn't be right to not have them attend also. Guess I'll just have to give them a call.

Ken was one of the first to put his hand up for this.

Sweet!

Gaile, I am looking forward to meeting you and the Old Coot as well as the rest of the crew.

Does the Old Coot still have the old Toyota????
