    Hey y'all,

    First - Denise, from all of us from the frozen tundra.....Happy Birthday girl. It sounds like you had a great time, wish we could have been there to celebrate with you all. Cris mentioned a globe that you wanted, is there a collection that you like?

    On the cruise front...I read an article this morning about the cruise lines reining in the cruise brokers real soon here. It might be a mistake to wait until the beginning of the year to put something together. If we can get good group pricing with a decent TA (do a search for either Lorie Cunningham or Skyscraper tours on any board, you will be pleasantly surprised with what everyone has to say about her) and also only a $50 per cabin deposit, it might be worth it to book something soon. Here are some sailings that I have put together. If you have any others, or just different dates, copy and paste them to this list and we can see about getting some prices.

    Carnival - Eastern Dates Starting Prices

    Legend - 8 nights Sept or Oct sailings 671.00

    Valor - 7 nights Sept sailings only 481.00


    Carnival -Western

    Miracle 9/4, 9/11, 9/18 481.00

    Valor 9/18, 10/02 481.00

    RCCL Eastern

    Mariner 9/18, 10/02 549.00
    * $125 coupon available for the 10/2 sailing

    RCCL Alaska

    Vision of the Seas- 9 nights 9/16 749.00

    Princess - Eastern

    Carribean Princess 9/17, 10/1, 10/8 529.00

    Golden Princess 10/22 462.00


    **Please note that 3rd and 4th passengers are quite higher on Princess and Carnival

    George - do your prices include the port charges and gov't fees?

    Sheree,

    I didn't run the quotes all the way through, it would have taken all day to do that...you actually think that I would miss my first Sunday off with Football?

    I went ahead and submitted those sailings to John, here at Cruise-Addicts for pricing, I'll let you know what they come up with. I'd really like to have our own sponsored page here at this site, makes it real easy to bring in others to our group.

    George,
    I happened to watch you Rams last night against the 49er's. They played well in the first half, but what happened in the second half? Our teams meet for the first time this year on Sunday, it should be a great game. I will have to go to the sports bar to watch it because Fox is slated to show the Panthers-Broncos game here in Orlando. Good luck to your team and thanks for the quotes.

    You need to get Sunday Ticket. Looking forward to the game, where is it?

    Hello All!
    Do Parrotheads have a vote? If so, Regina, Tom, Greg and I vote for the Mariner, Oct 2nd, Eastern sailing. We would love to hang out with you wild Cats!

    Ladies, St. Thomas is the shopping capital of the Caribbean. We recommend going to Mt. Top and trying a Bushwacker. Yum!

    St. Maarten~Orient Beach has a nude and semi-nude beach. The beaches are beautfiul and worth going to see. We saw maybe 2 or 3 French girls topless and a lady from the ship who decided while in Rome... However, if you walk to the right, beyond the rocks, the people are all nude. We had never experienced a nude beach before, so yes, we walked over and peeked.

    George,
    Thanks for posting pics of the ship. Wow! She really is a beaut!

    George,
    The game is in Seattle, and I don't have Direct TV so I can't get the NFL Sunday ticket. We are looking to go on possibly the Carnival Miracle or Valor, but not until the middle or later part of October. The couple that went on the Mariner with us wants to go later in October next year because they want to celebrate their wedding anniversary and the husband will be turning 50 around the same time. From what I understand they are bringing some of their families on the cruise next year, and some of them have never cruised before. We figured that Carnival would be the best ship for first time cruisers, but they are still deciding on either Carnival or RCCL. But Princess is a possibility too, we're just leaning more towards Carnival.

    Hi Y'all,

    Just to let you know, I recieved four quotes for different ships and itineraries today. If I don't have your email addy and you are interested in the quotes, make sure you email me at ....

    azramsfan1@cox.net

    While these quotes are through John here at Cruise-Addicts, I don't want to put prices on the boards until we have decided on a ship and sailing.

    George - please e-mail me with the quotes - I am especially interested because we'd be supporting the cruise addicts board. I am leaning more and more towards the Mariner Eastern.....Sheree

    I am not sure if we will be able to cruise on the Mariner in Oct! We may do Alaska for our next cruise! I am not sure when though!

    Hey All,

    Just checking in. Been a bit of a stranger lately- sorry!

    Switching jobs has taken up a lot of energy, and I managed to get into a minor car accident yesterday (car is fine, my back and neck are a bit sore).

    I'm just finishing up editing close to 300 photos from the trip and will upload them to Snapfish. If you'd like to view them, send me your email address and I'll give you access to the service: kerryterrell@yahoo.com

    Take care!

    Hey all....I hope you are all doing okay. Kerry - so sorry to hear about the car accident. I really hope you are okay! Hope you are enjoying the new job too!

    I'm with Jim on the cruise preference. I'd like to do the Mariner again, but could be persuaded to do Princess if that's what the group decides. I just loved the Mariner, and would really love to do it again. Based on the info George has collected, do we need to be making our decision in the next week? I know I saw a 10/15 deadline in the e-mail. What is everyone else thinking???

    I'll check in later - hope everyone has a good day!

    Hey all :) I hope everyone has a good weekend! :)
     
  19. Kerry, I'm glad to hear you're okay - I can relate, girl, I had a car accident a little over a year ago that almost could have prevented me cruising. Or breathing for that matter. I can LOL now. ;) I hope you feel better very soon! Much love! (And I think I know an attorney that might be able to refer you to a good PI attorney! heh!) And, Kerry, I'll take a link to those pics missy...my e-mail is in my profile! Thanks a bunch!

    Well, I got a message from HOSTKRISTI! Remember her from our old home!?! Anyway, she says we are legends on the new cruise board - - I'm not sure I can mention it here, so if you're interested - like Kerry said, post your e-mail or e-mail me, and I'll send you the link.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend! YOU!!! TOO!!! DAN!!!

    AND EVERYONE...DON'T FORGET TO VOTE WHEN IT'S TIME TO DO SO!!! Your vote DOES count!

    XO Yogini

    Hey - I am stealing the first milemarker!!!

    Yogini - can you send me the thread that you are mentioning? slaborie@yahoo.com
    Did the debate get you going - I see the time of your post coincides with the debate?

    Well guys - what are you thinking regarding the next cruise? Princess? RCCL? Carnival?

    I'll be checking in this weekend - I hope others are thinking about the next one as much as I am!

    Sheree
