Hello John and Stephen
Not sure how old our roll call is but there are 8 of us going in our group. Only 4 of us are gay the other two couples are my brother and sister in-law and their friends. We have met other going the same week on the other boards and roll call. Chip and I along with Jerry and Arthur will be coming from Atlanta Ga area. Chip and I snorkel in most ports. I have chatted with some ladies on another thread, not sure if they have a clue but they are looking for dance partners. If there isnít a plan on meeting all the others in the group, look for the FOD meeting, Chip always ask the director on the ship to put a meeting in the daily platter. Everyone in our group is in the late 40ís but donít let that scare you, weíre a lot of fun. I need to work on my post, from this we donít sound like a lot of fun.
John

Hey Chip and John,

Sounds like you have got a crowd with you, but we would like to meet you on board if you have the time. We are in our 50's, but don't feel sorry for us because my husband gets us a senior discount. We will look for the FOD announcement in the ship's daily planner. If you want to reach us we are in cabin 8020.

I will most likely try my first scuba in Cozumel. We will both be going to the Tabaya Beach in Roaton. I will be snorkeling in Belize. And our Cancun is open. Hope to hear from you. John

PS We live in the country between Austin and Houston in a town called Cat Spring, but don't worry we will not be bring our cowboy hats and boots, only our swim gear.

Hello John
Thanks for the note, looking forward to meeting you guys. Weíve all decided to fly and will arrive the morning of departure. I find it interesting that everyoneís about the same age with about a 10year span. We havenít planed any excursions or what to do in any of the ports. Iím flying into Houston next weekend and talking to my brother and friends about what we want to do. Itís their first cruise so weíll be planning tight schedules to make sure they get to do everything they have time for.
Chip and I will be snorkeling but not sure where. One of our friends here has never snorkeled and would like to, so Iím sure weíll find somewhere with claim waters. I remember Belize being rough waters. Have you been to Roaton before? Weíve been before and did a land tour that stopped at Paradise Island resort and the snorkeling wasnít that good. The jet skies were fun.
I will know more about what we are going to do when I return from Texas. And I will surely let you guys know when we make our meet and greet plans on the ship.
Have you seen the clock we only 80 days.
John

Hey John,

We have been to Roaton last year on the Norw Sea. It was our first and only NCL cruise. We went to Tabyana Beach (Norw tour code RBT-402). About a twenty minute somewhat uncomfortable bus ride to beach thru some proverty looking towns. But the beach was typical beautiful Carribean with great sand and that wonderful aqua water. The reef was great, but about 100 yards out and a little over you head to about 40 feet deep on the ocean side. We liked it enough to go back. There are other things to do at Tabyana beach including horseback riding, Dolphin Encounter, Semi Submersible, and snorkel tour. Of Course they are all extra. Stephen took the Semi Submersible and liked it. We have our own snorkel gear, if you don't, you may want to get RBT -402 which includes snorkel gear and a guided tour of the reef (kinda of like life guards for you beginner). They also gave a great snorkel lesson at the pool I believe the second day of the cruise. I really recommend for your beginner, or anyone or that matter, I pick up so good snorkel edicate.

I liked NCL the one time we were on it. We have been on 15 cruises and the things I liked about NCL was the great BBQ poolside, and alternative dining places. I found the the food to be alittle sub par at the main dining hall and buffet, but will take that for the informality (we don't bring our tux, yeah) and open seating. The ship we were on is retired and was really old, but we still liked it. I do hope the Dream has a better gym.

I noticed you are on the Zenith later in the year. We got back from a cruise on her sister ship the Celebrity Horzion last April. What a sweet old ship, well loved, great food and servire. They are retiring the Horizon soon, I bet the Zenith is keep up just as well. Celebrity is our favority cruise line. Sorry to ramble on so. Hope to meet you on board.

John from Cat Spring, Tx.

Hello Guys, the days are counting down and everyone is getting excited. I have contacted the ship for a Meet and Greet and once that's confirmed I will email you and let you know the time and location.
Isn't there any other Family going? One big ship and three gays couples, that will do for a FOD party.

Default Future Dream Cruise

Hi Guys!

I am glad to see that there are Gay men taking the Dream out of Houston, though unfortunately I will be on a future cruise. I hope that you all can report back about the ship and FOD stuff. Mainly because I will be "working" on the cruise as a dance teacher...I actually had to find a woman to go with me because they only hire couples! I am 43 and will be teaching 4 one hour dance classes during the week's cruise. There are guidelines for our behavior on the ship such as no gambling in the casino or bingo, etc...but other than that I am supposed to be considered a passenger. I wonder that if there are FOD meetings if I can go [since I am kinda staff...but not really...].

Let me know what you all think of the cruise...what to look for...and look out for!

Paul

HELLO EVERYONE
Its official you now have to meet me. I received a conformation from my contact at NCL and we are meeting in Luckyís Lounge Sunday morning at 10:00am port side. And since we have so many Birthdays, Anniversaries and first time cruisers Iíve ordered a cake to celebrate. I know it early for cake but we needed something for all the celebrations each of you are having. The ship has set aside an area for 35 of us, so have everyone in your group come and meet their fellow cruisers. Itís going to be a pleasure in meeting each and every one of you.
John and Chip
