Anyone? Anyone? :)

Sailing from Rome to Galveston, Texas October 26, 2011 to November 11, 2011 with at least 2 other couples from the Dallas area and possibly another couple from the Atlanta area. We already have a good start for fun GLBT meetings...

Oh Fantastic! It's always great cruising with family....we may end up having a large group from the DFW area so we should have a blast. We have even discussed having our own "White Party" somewhere during the days at sea--of course much more clothed than an Atlantis or RSVP out of respect for all the passengers and, well...we aren't 25 anymore...LOL.. :)

There is a regular thread about this cruise up and running and already up to 50 pages if you want to check it out.

One of those members has even set up a webpage with the cruise

Hey there guys! My name is Richard and my husband is Woody.We are booked on this cruise and are looking so foward to the trip.I know there will be several people from Galveston going, as well as many of the people he works with from American. Lord, we may know you guys! We are from the DFW area, and have a condo in Arlington still. So I am glad to see more family going. Are there gatherings planned by your group? Would love to join them if we may. :D

Hi there Robert. Richard here, along with Woody. Glad to see others joining us. We have friends taking the Voyager to Barcelona as well. We would love to have done that one, but we are having our house painted so that one was out. You live in Clear Lake it shows,maybe.....to you ever make it to Galveston?

Hi WoodyNDick: Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, but I have been on the Voyager for the past three weeks. Had a great time but long. Met a few guys who will be on the Mariner next Oct. Sounds like a nice group so far.
I do get down to Galveston sometimes, for fun with my partner and also work every Sunday at the Sea men's Center.
I hope we keep in touch between now and the cruise. My friend Jerry will be going with me, my partner has to work, so he will not be going.

Keep in touch
Robert.

Hi Everyone,
I too will be on the TA on the Mariner in October. Very much looking forward to it. i am taking my mom on the cruise, she is 72 and lives in Beaumont. I am 45 and live in Austin. Counting the days!!! We have the 9 p.m. dinner, so maybe I will get to join the FOD meeting to meet you all. Thanks, Louis and Linda (Mom) LeDoux

Wow...sounds like a growing group we have! I know that Royal Caribbean doesn't advertise the FOD meetings in their publication, so be sure to check the bulletin board on the ship to find out where and when.

Has anyone been on the Mariner and might know where the FOD meetings are taking place?

M&D: I have been on the Mariner of the Seas before (a 47 day cruise around south America). Normally you can post a note on the community note board, and you can set the time and place you would like. In the past we have used the Champaign Bar around 5 p.m. (before the first sitting), just to get to known each other in the first days of the cruise.

Hello Everyone,

We have a group taking this cruise as well... Also from the Dallas, TX area. Me, my wife, my sister (Lafayette), my wife's mother (Shreveport), her mother's sister (Lafayette), my wife's best friend (Dallas), her best friend's mother, her best friend's sister, and her best friends mother's sister (all from TX)...

Getting to Rome 4 nights early for some sight seeing... My wife and my 3rd time in Rome... One of the most beautiful cities on Earth. Love that place.

I am EXTREMELY extroverted, so I will likely get to know many of the people on the ship... I'll be at the karaoke gigs, shows, casino, dancing, and just about everywhere... HUGE Football fanatic (LSU and the New Orleans Saints), so my wife and I will be up for all the games... Hope they have a place set up for that.

Really looking forward to the cruise! This will be our 5th cruise and first on RCI...

Hey Guys and Gals!!!

Cant believe it is almost here, have been waiting for so long! It hopefully will be posted, but if not, let's plan on a pre-dinner cocktail hour(s) at the Champagne Bar. We have 2nd seating so we plan to be there around 7pm.

Kent, Tom, and Guy from Los Angeles

Oh! I forget something...in addition to us 3, some other friends are coming with us: Bob and Brad from the Carson City, Nevada area - very nice fun guys. You will see Brad every morning on the track doing his morning laps. And also coming along are Dave and Matt from San Francisco, very interesting and nice guys also. Dave is QUITE the dancing...well, I will say... king. For sure if you like to dance (ballroom to disco), be sure to meet Dave. He is always looking for a dance partner. Alas I have 2 left feet. See ya! Kent

Hi all, sound like we are going to have a great group for the crossing. My friend Jerry and I are all for the pre-dinner cocktail hour(s) at the Champagne Bar. We will see you there ever-night.
Looking forward to meeting all of you, how about if on departure day we all stop by the pool bar (I think its the Sky bar) and say hi to each other?

Champagne Bar for friends of Dorothy sounds great! Pool Bar on departure sounds great! It certainly sounds like we will be having a large contingency of faaabulousness on board!
