Having a great time! Didn't win the belly flop but got another hat! Day at sea was awesome! Cabin is great. Contraband arrived safely! Pictures next Sunday.

The whole Carona Girl thing was a very elaborate hoax!
Riptide no where to be seen.

AT Labadee now and getting ready to take kids to island and do Waverunners! Stay tuned for more later!!

Weather is here, wish you beautiful!! 8)

First glad to hear you are having great weather --

Secondly, as I recall you were never totally "sold" on the Carona Girl thing!

Can't wait to see the pictures and get the scoop on the others that you were meeting at the Meet & Mingle......

Great to hear from you Dave. Glad you're having a great time.

As for the CG issue, at least you can't get into any trouble. Can you give us the details of the hoax? Inquiring minds need to know!!!!!!!!

Have a great day at Labadee.

Can't wait for the pictures.

Great day in Labadee! Did waverunners with Eric, back to the pool bar, kids are ice skating, getting ready for dinner. Met some great people from CC site Meet and Mingle. SIng Kareoke tonight, last night formal dinner, have matching beads for each Speedo, which remoiiinds me,,, great pics of two guys showering by the pool in Speedos!

Carona Girl is yet to be spotted, however, the pictures will reveal another girl drinking Coronas who I had to give away my beads to for the picture!

Dave, I can't believe Corona girl did not show up? Did you have her cabin number before hand? Why would she do that to you? I bet you are having a great time anyway. You were most likely bummed for a minute but what the heck, you are on vacation and partying and the rest of us are sitting here back at home. Keep us up to date on your adventures. Bob

Dave,,,sounds like a great time is being had by all. I too suspected the Carolina Girl "thing" was a hoax Sounds like you're having more fun without her anyway!
Sorry about the belly flop contest. Maybe you'll win the "Mariner Karaoke SuperStar" contest instead.
Maybe I'll run over the bridge and see you when you return. (a Civic is sounding better all the time with the gas prices over $3)

See you aboard,

Ken

Dave,

Seems like CG was all talk, no action........

But the party goes on! Have another beer, and don't worry about the talkers!

Have a good one!

Hey Dave just checking into to see if you won the Karoake contest - and to find out what you sang; most likely Jimmy.

FYI: did they have the quest contest yet?

Sang "A Pirate Looks at Forty"....again. Not a contest. Dressed up in my Austin Powers outfit for the 70's street party, was a big hit!

Dunns River Falls, Margaritaville today! Great crowd onboard. Been hangin' at the pool bar with this couple on their 89 RCI cruise. Getting some tips on alcohol management. Was line dancing at the pool with the new Carona girl.

Stay tuned.... 8)

on the high seas with Dave!!

"Oh a Pirates Life for me!"

Speaking of which.....if anyone has plans to see Pirates of the Caribbean sequel - don't leave when the movie is done. After the credits roll, there's a continuation of the movie.....pass the word around.

Dave- you mentioned "contraband " easy to get on....did you just pack in your luggage w/ no problems?

How many Caronas have you knocked down so far? Great recaps.
