I knew you wouldn't mind if I busted you on that one, Donna. That's what I love about our group! We have so much fun, and feel so comfortable with each other.

I'll keep working on the cruise pictures from last year.

All right, I'm going to show my age now: My 14-year old niece set up a facebook page for me a couple of years ago, but I haven't been on in ages, and even forgot how to do it. Also, I understand that I have to be "invited" to be able to get access to a particular page, like EGE.

Any of you young whippersnappers out there want to teach me about how to find the EGE page and invite me (if that's required)?

Thanks from the old fart,

You call yourself an old fart? What a gas!

I am not that well-versed in FaceBook (I still prefer the cruise critic board) but if I did it correctly, I just invited you into our closed group. Hopefully you will get the "invitation" to join, but you have to be on FaceBook to get it. I hope you remember how to log on! Meanwhile, keep checking this board, we won't let it die!

Default New Cruise

I was just looking online and saw a cruise that might work for next year.

10-night Southern Caribbean on the Caribbean Princess
It's a repositioning cruise from Brooklyn, NY to Galveston, TX leaving on October 26th, ports-of call are: Grand Turk, Curacao, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.

Just thought I would put that out there.

00Carl ,

I envy your vacations. I wish I had the time to travel as much.
Enjoy the Allure and when you get back, you must give us the scoop on the Allure.

Have a great time,
Donna

WOW!! 26 days without a post on this board - this has got to be an all-time reord for EGEers. Normally, you can't shut us up for a minute!

Where is everybody???

Hi John,

Some folks are on Facebook, but even that's pretty quiet. No decision has been made on a 2013 cruise, but there has been some discussion - a good sign!

Hi John,

I'm here and always checking the boards.
This board has more activity than my roll call (just kidding).

Hi Dena and Donna,

Glad to see there are still a few posters left on this board. At this point, I would guess that most EGEers have probably made individual plans for Fall 2013, and an that organized EGEIII cruise may not be in the cards this year.

So, looks like we'll have to start checking out the Fall 2014 cruises (not expecting itineraries to be announced until Spring 2013), so we're looking at a pretty quiet board until then.

Would have been nice if our mayor hadn't abandoned us, as we would still have some of his "glue" to hold this board together!

Hey Ernie, remember that this is an election year so you'd better get back out here and start campaigning if you want to get re-elected. We're not automatic votes you know - and we're not feeling the love lately...

John

The chat on the EGE's Facebook page today involves itineraries for Oct/Nov 2013. I feel a decision is nearing, but there is still no consensus on departure port, itinerary, even the cruise line is now up for debate. If it looks like the group is nearing a decision I will post again... Or you can join the conversation on Facebook. It's easy to sign up, and once you do we'll look for YOU so you can join that group.

Hey, John,

We just got back from Ocean City, Maryland this evening, so that's why we have been so quite. (Why do I say "we" because Sharon doesn't even get onto the computer to check e-mails, no less cruise critic!).

We are eagerly awaiting the London wedding and cruise! But we are of course wondering about a Fall 2103 cruise, we are VERY much interested in that!

Any ideas yet. Johnboy?

Ernie

Hi Ernie, glad to see you posting again. I know you must be busy planning your London trip, the wedding, and Med cruise in October. Good that you were able to take some time off for a land vacation, but you'd still better make time for us, buddy!

We booked a 10-night Western Caribbean (Cozumel, George Town, Falmouth, and Labadee) out of Baltimore on the new and improved Grandeur, sailing Nov 16, 2013 . It's a new RCI itinerary from Baltimore.

Involves no flying and adds C&A points by sailing RCI, so I'm happy!

You all might want to consider this as a candidate for a possible EGEIII cruise, as many can drive to this port, too (a GREAT benefit).

John

Wow, just read my post from last night and see that I typed the wrong years. Should have been:

Here are what appear to be the favorite options for 2013, in date order:

Port Canaveral; Great Stirrup Cay; Nassau

Nov. 3, Explorer, 11 nights
Labadee; San Juan; St. Maarten; Antigua; St. Kitts
(I'll wave as you sail away - too long for us)

Nov. 8 Grandeur (Baltimore) 8 nights
Port Canaveral; CocoCay; Nassau; Key West

Nov. 14 Explorer, 9 nights
Same itinerary as last year

Nov. 16 Grandeur (Baltimore), 10 nights

My preference is 8 nights 11/8 from Baltimore, but my priority is Ghosties! We'll try to work with the majority.
