Dear Jim -
ZQ VOl and I will have just returned from a week at WDW - a very different experience.
If you and Lois encounter Christophe, Martijn or Eric, please have Lois give them a hug and kiss for me.

Hi folks. As I understand the schedule (explained to me several weeks ago and, of course, subject to change) Christophe will be on SD2 that week, I'm not sure about Martijn's schedule that week although he has just left for vacation and may not be back at work by April 16 and I'm not sure about Eric although my best guess is that he'll be on SD2 that week, if he's working then. Tomasz should just be back from vacation and is scheduled to be Hotel Manager on SD1 that week.

ctbjr -

when I last spoke with Martijn he was complaining that since he had broken up with his girlfriend in the US, he was going to have to go home to his parents, poor baby.

Any news on Richard - did he return from holiday engaged?

Jim -- We would love to permanently vacation somewhere in the Islands, but haven't quite got the guts to tell dear children they are on their own . . . can't wait until the last tuitition check is paid . . but since Radisson is going all inclusive in 2007 we're thinking about the South Seas adventure for our run away from children escape. You and Lois game? Cbjr - we're trying to draft Disney Jen and Andy also (planning events are scheduled for SD III)

Hi FT,

Martijn started his vacation several weeks ago by heading to Rio with some friends. Can't imagine that he would have any fun there....

Perhaps if he's spending the rest of his time at home with parents he'll return to work earlier than otherwise.

Richard is still away and last I heard was continuing to wrestle with the engagement situation. I am fairly confident that I know how that situation will turn out. I know both Richard and his prospective fiance and they are both great people.

DJ and Andy would be good companions for your Radisson adventure. We're hoping to see them on SD again one of these days as well.

Hi FT/ZQVOL:
South Seas Adventure sounds great and looking forward to Radissons all inclusive plan but we have booked QE2 Transatlantic in 2007 which entails visiting relatives in Europe prior to voyage. Lois's Mom is 80 in the Fall so Arizona is a must. Only leaves 1 week to try and wedge a SD trip somewhere nearby. You guys have a blast (I know you will as long as the champagne holds out).
All the Best,
J & L.

We are still playing with schedules here ...

Actually after our short visit back north to visit family Andy has committed us to spending a week in November in Aruba with my parents, a week in June in the Finger Lakes of NY with his brother and wife, and a long weekend in August on Long Beach Island in NJ with our bareboat sailing cousins. Mind you we have a week at Disney World in June ... when we hope to see Ctbjr and wife!

DH also asked some of his family to join us on a SD Caribbean cruise in early '07.

Still trying to fit the SDIII into the mix FT

The friendships that you make here on CC and then on SD really do carry over into your real life

I hope you have a wonderful week!

DJ,

Why did I think that at least a part of you is in Anegada? Ever been there?

Anegada ... (insert "sigh" smilie). Kate and Pattie I hope you get to see this beautiful island on your April 16 cruise!

How right you are Ctb Actually my head is there anytime anyone mentions the BVIs!

FT and I are having dinner with another friend tomorrow evening ... I think I am going to have to wear FT down so that she will join us on another SD cruise. I know her DH will appreciate my efforts

Yes DH will appreciate your efforts - however, since I'm driving I don't think my stubborness will evaporate (or be drowned) tomorrow at dinner! Unfortunately, with respect to Caribbean SD cruises DH's academic calendar only accommodates holiday weeks - and with two bumps for a charter and the "kiddie cruise" I've sworn to avoid SD cruises on those weeks.

Well this thread has been quiet! I know I have been busy - but it's time to really count down and start packing! Regretably I will be away next week April 11-13 so this will be crazy getting ready. Can't wait!

How wonderful to be just a few days away from a SD adventure!

I hope that you will post from the ship and/or share a trip report upon your return!

Aren't trip reports great? Sorry, couldn't resist.
