Now for my big news!!!! As I said, I had a dinner meeting at 6 which was actually a product launch. Well I won a prize - anyone want to guess what it might be??????????

I'll give you a hint - it will be used (and not by me - I'm a chicken) at the end of this cruise by my darling David. He's brave - I'm not.................
Marilyn,

Is it a river rafting trip???

Wow! That's a beauty Karen! Did it take very long to create? Can you repeat the link on here?

Thanks!

Even if it is reserved, don't we need tender tickets? Who is going to get them?


Our Group:

Cruising Fool - Marianne & Herb
elmwood106 - Patti & Kurt
Karlos - Karen & John
Kenkal60 - Ken & Frances
Oceanbabe - Elaine & Michael
HoopsandYoYo - Helga & Jake

Meeting Place: Level 4 Centrum (Lobby Bar area) at 7:45 am April 25

Marianne & Herb: As you are now on the ship, let us know if you have been able to reserve the first tender off the ship for this tour. If not we will do our best to meet at the above location and depart the ship together.
Hope you are enjoying yourself --we will see you soon!

River Rafting - I wouldn't do that either.

Ok - I won Zip lining I have no idea where in Vancouver they Zip Line and I can only hope we can get there between leaving the ship and having to be at the airport.

I would never zipline and when she said this one is to zipline in Vancouver, I kept saying "not me not me not me not me" and she said "me".

Since we ar in the middle of Ontario I have to wonder if she expected someone to say "gee - I'll be there in a month."

Thank you all for the information on London - Harwich. I very seldom fly into London, usually Manchester cause my family is there and Wales.

I really wasn't sure how long it would take to get over to Harwich. I know the trains are the best mode of transport in England. We use it all the time up north. We even used it to go from London to Barcelona one year.

I checked the Premier Inn in Harwich but it's already booked up. Since I can get hotels in London at a fairly decent rate right now, we'll probably stay there and then take the train first thing in the morning if I can't do a private hire.
