TO: Dee and John: "Bienvenidas, Amigos!!" Welcome to our Seabourn family.....soooo happy you posted to let us know you have booked the
Pride March 2007 Cross! The 12 day voyage will be life changing! ("they" don't mention this in the brochure) As to Suite 100.....how in the world did you manage to secure our well kept, secret room???? This is THE best Suite on the ship!!! A mini-owner's suite! (I would have booked it, but 'alas I must stay midship on Crossings) Many small private parties have been planned.......if you would enjoy having a cocktail "affair" or a morning "social" please post here. These small parties are quite easy to host.....simply call the Maitre'D a day or so before your date.
MY Blackbird: NO, your "cruisin' life" will never be the same after the magical "Good Ship ****** Crossing!" 'Talk about "The Ship Of Fools????" ha ha ha (THE best Island in the World floats & moves.....it's THE PRIDE!)
Thule-ie, I can hardly wait to SEE your wardrobe!!!! Bring it all! We might even decide to have a 'lit styleshow one afternoon, during High Tea, up in the Constellation Lounge........I was in the Couture fashion business for many years (Frost Bros., San Antonio) and I would be happy to commentate the runway show! Our pianist could play melodies, such as: "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody??"
I do know of a "Guest" that is thinking of hosting a "Silent Auction" in his Suite......ALL Proceeds will go directly into the Pride Crew Fund! Good and excellent idea??? I would be willing to secure "items" from The Bridge!Maybe even from the hospital! And from the Galley........hmmmm???? We could all bring an item to be auctioned!
Have a grrreat and safe weekend! And have some fun!

That Silent Auction idea sounds marvelous! Maybe items ADN services? I know what I'll bring for it...
Concerning attire - last night in my dreams I had an incredible brainstorm!
Will there be a western-themed or Texas-themed event?
Regarding a different theme - anyone know where I could get some Aladdin-styled shoes/slippers? The ones with the pointy-curled toes? I checked ebay and saw nothing...
Now - regarding a fashion show - hmmm... maybe an America's Worst Top Model contest? I could win that!

Sailor's......actually I have thought of having an afternoon styleshow up in the Constellation Lounge for years! But THE " runway show" would have a different small twist to it: "WHAT NOT TO WEAR ON A SEABOURN VOYAGE!" Can you image???? I would be willing to commentate the show and OH.....I just remembered, my good friend, MBT, from Delaware, will be aboard and she is a master pianist!!! I could invite (or force) a few "guest models" from the Officer manifest!! Carumba! Then some of the Guests could model......we could ask for a small "entrance love gift"......ALL proceeds go again, to the Crew Fund.
Please "jump in" with more ideas as to: "A Special Afternoon Styleshow Soiree, aboard the beautiful white Pride Castle"
I Love the NOT to wear aspect. I'm sure there are plenty of speedo's amongst some of the Scandinavians that should definitely not be worn by most of the mature men.
And I'll try to remember to bring my boa's, baubles, bangles, and beads...
Matt......EXCELLENT IDEA! What about having a contest?
'BREAK THE SEABOURN DRESS CODE CONTEST
(all proceeds will be kindly presented to THE Crew Fund)
Then present the styleshow up in the Constellation Lounge......or around the Sky Bar one warm afternoon around 3:00 (we could use the Constellation Lounge for the dressing room) Invite guests to model....and then ask a few "distinct/dissimilar" Officer's or Crew to take part as "Special surprise invited models."
A "Texas Fling Ding" could very well be added! NO LINE-DANCIN', however!
We real Texans don't believe in them!!! Too tacky!
I will look a'round for a pair of "pointy-curled" Aladdin shoes!!!
This is Martita's friend from Delaware -- the pianist. I'd be glad to play for this Once in a Lifetime Style Show. Am I allowed to LAUGH while I'm playing for the models??? You can ask for Musical Requests and I'll think about playing them!! I promise to start practicing TODAY!
Sailor's, we know we shall enjoy special events, parties, dinner's, cocktail parties, a Pajama Morning Social, and perhaps a styleshow next March.
Captain Toenis T. will also host his "Hide and Seek Search" event. Perhaps he'll surprise us with another "secret game!" (we were surely surprised with a few Seabourn Exclusive Events last March! ha ha ha)
O.K......here we go! Come on, Thule-ee, Blackbird, Matt, MBT.....and the other party planners. We only have 8 months to make the plans.
I usually work for 12 months of preparations, planning, ordering, arranging, etc., etc. for the big Pride Crossing Galas.......sooooo help me out here!
As to the styleshow: would you enjoy just a "runway show" or a contest?
Either is fine with me. Please vote.
We will have a PJ Morning Social, I have already committed to hosting again "The Annual Pisces Birthday party" This is for "the 'ole Crossers.....I think just for 12. We will enjoy many dinner and cocktail affairs.
Perhaps a "Texas Fling Ding" one evening......other special events also!
Let's not do a contest -- just a runway show filled with laughter and picture-taking so we can show the folks back home how crazy we are. I learned "I Feel Pretty" this afternoon. That's ONE. Glad the piano didn't tell me I was "off topic!"
MBT, I agree, I think we should go ahead with the planned styleshow.
Either held in the Constellation Lounge or if it's sunny and warm, even around the Sky Bar.......perhaps about 3:00 pm?
OH, and we will have our "Silent Auction" benefitting the Crew Fund! This will be a most special event. Keep thinking as to auction items! I will "twist a few arms" up in the Bridge......Carumba! These "items" will go for a premium and the proceeds might even cover a big party for our Crew!
Has there ever been some sort of Flamingo based soiree? It WOULD include lots of pink!!! Perhaps we could convert the Constellation Lounge in to THE FLAMING "O" BAR for an afternoon? Serve Rosé Champagne, Cosmos, Pink Ladies, or some new concotion with a little 151 on top, aflame?
Wait - what did I do with my pink boa - oh - nevermind .
Thule-ee, as to the pink gala.....I think perhaps the Pride Crew might be sick of pink! We all left ALL of our pink items behind in order for the Crew to have a pink "blow-out" in the Crew Bar. I received an e-mail from Stijn (Chief Purser)last week, saying that the Crew did indeed have the party! He promised to send pictures to me via a Port Agent.
But, as to our Crossing events, parties, etc., etc.....THE sky's the limit!
Of course the CD will be hosting Trivia (I don't play) putting contest, the sewing classes, bridge, wine tasting's, Cheffy will be hosting a "demo".......on & on. But, these are "ship's activites" and we can plan anything we'd enjoy as private parties or "affairs!"
