I am so glad you all had a wonderful cruise. I'm glad to hear you are planning another next year. Maybe it will work out so I can join you. I hope so.

Hi Mary,

I can't wait either - I'm like a little kid! :-D

Anticipation, anticipation is making me wait - it's keeping me waiting.....

That's my bad singing allotment for the day, ha, ha ;-)

Have a great time in Alaska Mary! Take lots and lots of pictures for us to see :-D

We'll miss you!

To the gang: I just couldn't get over how long it took to get my land legs back. And now my days are filled with laundry, dishes and life. How glorious it was to have a week where the only concern was "should I have two or three desserts"?

Duke: Life is trudging along. Mary had such a good time, she's already plotting our next escape (probably 2006/07). I've posted some pictures on Cruisemates, and between what I took and the rest of the gang, I have ooooodles of fond memories to burn. I check the boards to see if anyone has posted, so it was so nice to see your note tonight. Unfortunately, time and monies determine so many aspects of our lives, and therefore, I probably won't be joining you on the Valor again. Boooo Hoooo !

It will be so much fun to watch the new board and everyone's excitement once all the details fall into place. I guess I will just have to live vicariously through y'all.

Until later,

Kathryn (Kit) the phantom you barely saw.

Did you read my message to you on my post before they deleted it? I asked them to delete it. I will tell you why later. My girlfriend is switching her daughter to my cabin, BTW. So I'm set.

Hello my fellow royal mates and those who are planning to join us on our next adventrue on April 30, 2006.

I'm just getting my land legs and timezone change body back in gear from Alaska. What a beautiful place. A couple of days I thougtht I was in the carribbean - we had very warm weather - go figure - Of course I packed for cool/rainy weather - never used the rain/fleece jacket - hmmm maybe I'll return it to the store and get my money back.

It's a long time again now until the next cruise - Carnival Valor - Western - so here goes the countdown


The stiingrays await us in Grand Cayman

Have a great Saturday -

Rani Mary

NO NO NO

294 days????

I really try to not think about this. I know we booked over a year in advance for the last cruise and it really went quick once summer was over. I do believe I am going to be even more excited about this one than last time. Whoo Hoo So exciting.

Would you mind posting a little more info about the 2006 cruise for those of us who didn't get to make it this year but would like to possibly join your group next year. I can look up the cruise itinerary on Carnival, but I'd like more info on the "group cruise" - activies etc. Or is it more of an "everybody sails together but does their own thing" type of cruise? My 2005 cruise hasn't sailed yet but I'm already shopping around for 2006. I'm even looking into my 2007 plans already. Thanks much.

I'm afraid posting information about groups would be a violation of our User Agreement. You're more than welcome to exchange this information via e-mail.

Promoting a group here, where people are expected/encouraged to book with a particular TA is not allowed.

Certainly talking about the upcoming group and sharing the excitement is allowed and welcome.

Hi there Born2Cruise - we the royal family that met on this message board and exchanged a lot of laughs and information together - and met up with one another in person for the first time on the Valor May 8 cruise. We enjoyed our cruise together so much, we decided to do a reunion cruise. There are/were folks out here that enjoyed our bantering back and forth that they wanted to know when our next adventure would be - they might possibly join us.

We are a bunch of folks - not a formalized TA group with activities - not trying to promote any TA - only meeting up with one another to have a good time. Just so you know, we met folks that were already booked and some that joined up after reading our posts here and on another site. We came from all over.

On to the adventure planned for next year. Our adventure begins April 30 in Miami aboard the Carnival Valor headed for the Western Caribbean and we plan on having a returning good time and meeting up with more folks. As far as activities, everyone is on their own - as I said we are not a formalized group. We do however, talk with one another to see about going on same excursions - sometimes outside the Carnival excursions.

Hope this info helps.

Mary

FORMALIZED GROUP!!!!!!!!

ME!!!

NO WAY............

As Mary has put it we are not any formal group or anything. The woman (who trips alot) and I was booked on the May 8th sailing of the Valor. This was our first cruise and I happened upon this board and others to gather information. Upon reading the who was going on that cruise I ran into this joking called Royal Family (refer to Dukes post). These people I have never met, I booked through Carnival they booked through whoever. Meeting all these people had made the cruise that more enjoyable. We did our own thing and others did theres. One day in St Thomas we didnt book an excursion or anything and Heather (gotta love this woman) asked us to go to Coki beach with them. Now you can ask all that was there that day or you can just be around some of these people and say Coki..... Watch the huge smile and laughter you get from them. So no we are not a formal group, and no we dont promote any TA. What we do promote is having a great time and meeting some great people. Oh yeah and PINKY!!

Anyways if you are going on this cruise or have interest in just meeting new peeps and having a great time and laughs (hopefully another Coki) just talk to us. Again the only thing that is being promoted is laughs and a good time.

According to articile at the following, we may need passports for next year. You may want to look into getting one. It took about 6 weeks for my passport to get to me. Of course I inquired a week before my cruise and they said for $80 I could get it expedited - I said no - I'll wait. It came a week later.

So glad you reminded me about the passport deal. I forgot about that for a bit. I am going to get right on that one for us. I have always wanted to get one anyway. How big of a pain is it to get one anyway? What is the easiest way to go about it?

Be seeing ya soon for lunch or dinner when I swing south here in a few weeks. Will let ya know the date as soon as I figure it out.
