Hi, you have to make sure you become active on the VTG message board that will be set up for all the cruisers to talk with eachother two months in advance of cruising. That is how you will maximize your cruise experience because by the time you get on the ship you will already have met several singles to be friends with and hang out with them. Plus, the lurkers will also know who you are. You must also post a photo of yourself so the singles can recognize you when you get on board the ship. Angel Gal

Default Will also be on 5/13 VTG Carnival Valor

Hi Kingdre & gang:

I also booked the 5/13 VTG singles cruise on the Carnival Valor too. This will be my second singles cruise with VTG (went to the Mexican Riviera with them last April on the Sapphire Princess from LA and it was great) and my first cruise ever on a Carnival ship. Of course, I can't wait for that chat site to be up so I can chat with you folks before the cruise (most likely will be next month around my final payment due). I'm looking forward to this trip and it should be lots of fun!!!

Paul

Be sure to post your photo so people know what you look like. I had posted my photo on the vtg board and a guy I met had also posted his photo so when we saw eachother on the ship we became fast friends. We are still friends because of the photos being posted. It made a big difference in meeting lots of singles that way. Angel gal

Small world :o
I'm on the Valor 13 May, but not with VTG. We might pass each other in the hall, who knows ?
Don't worry, I have NO plans to crash your party!

hey tucks candy


well if your not booked with the singles group..you can still hang out and party with all of us. the only difference is you cant go to the singles parties and the group has a seperate area for dinner. you can talk to some of us through here to find and meet some people that are crusing with us. iam just looking forward to the drinking dancing and hanging out at the beaches all week.

For those of you going on this cruise be sure to read my article on Cruisemates' home page featuring VTG's December cruise on the Crystal Serenity. And for you first-time cruisers, go to CM's singles section and I think you will find some articles that will be helpful, as well as interesting.

Have fun. Wish I were going, too!

you can carry wine on you....other liquor you can put in water bottles inside your luggage..theres bunch of differnt ways...but i carry the wine on.and put all the other stuff in my luggage in water bottles or i put one or two bottles in a shoe box wrapped in luggage in my suitcase... iam lucky i buy it at home and i can ship it to my precruise hotel for free. then i just swith it over at the hotel. this liquor is just for the cabin parties we all have and after the bar closes around 4 5 am.

Hi Karl and everyone :

Another way FYI is to go to the Outdoor Store and get the collapsible
water containers called "Platypus"(5.99-6.99) They come in 1 or 2 liter containers . the Hikers use them and one good thing about them is they are very light weight and they are collapsible ,Very easy to put in your Luggage . I also wrap them(filled) in a Plastic Garbage bag just for added protection .

For that guy that isn't going on with VTG Just get in touch with me and I will let you know about the Blender Party

Karl I'm getting in on thrusday and staying on Miami Beach (Howard Johnson Dezerland Hotel) (69.00 a night Not Bad ) and a few of us are driving down thru the Keys to Key West on Saturday We have a full car but you are welcome to follow the caravan if you are getting a rented car.We will be back before the Pre cruise Party

See ya soon
