This group booked a year in advance, so we had a long time to get to know each other...when we finally met in FLL, it was like meeting old friends for the first time...AWESOME!!!

The 3 videos I posted on youtube are just exerpts from the full DVD I put together with pictures from many of the Miracle Waiters. Since so many contributed to the project, it made for a more complete picture of the great time we all had.

We had so much fun together, many of us are cruising together again this coming January (2010). We can hardly wait! We are steady making new friends to meet up with in FLL that will be like "meeting old friends for the first time!"

Here are the youtube links...

Chapter 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqOhZRiRo8s

Chapter 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HFyxFncSNE

Finale http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oxP-RoklfI

There is not a Chapter 2 or 4 because youtube pulled the music that was on them, and I deleted them...

I hope you enjoy them!

Sheila<-------------thinks this has to be the best CC group cruise E-VER!!!! So far... :0)

WOW! Sheila, we look so happy in the videos. Was that because of all the fun we were having or those strong chocolate martinis? lol. Awesome job and thanks for posting. I know we are going to have a blast once again. Can't wait.

Sheila - once again you have outdone yourself. That was wonderful. It brought up all kinds of great memories from the cruise. Most of all it reminded me of all the great people we met and friends we made on that cruise. We miss you all. Thanks for doing this.

Elaine/Elana and of course Richard

We sure hope a balcony opens up as final payment due date approaches. We are saving tow seats at our dinner table for you.
Did you tell Johna to keep an eye out for a balcony room for you?

Dear Sheila,
You made my day, so glad I saw this and now I can get a Waiters fix on you tube! It was truly the best cruise ever and I can't stop smiling when watching the videos. True Joy!
We wish we were joining you on Freedom, but "Our Carnival Dream" is coming true next year. We will hook up again!
Thanks!

Oh, the memories! Fern and I are cruising the same week as Freedom Rockers but are going out of Miami on the Carnival Glory- a back-to-back. The 1st week is Eastern Caribbean and includes Grand Turk ( I fell in love with Grand Turk on the Miracle Waiters' Cruise) and private Island, Half Moon Cay. The 2nd week will do the Western Caribbean which doesn't include Panama. I will be thinking of all the good times on the Miracle!

Sheila-Have you looked into a CC cruise for 2011 ??? Sure hope to join the group if you do! I'd love to see Grand Turk and/or Half Moon Cay on the itinerary.

Regina,
We just visited Grand Turk & Half Moon Cay on Pride. Half Moon is my favorite beach in the world!!!
Grand Turk started out raining, then drizzly, but finally cleared out. It was nice, but not as nice as last year on Miracle with the Waiters. I remember we watched your stuff at the beach so you both could swim together.
