Dave and Glenne, it is too late to book the BVE on the Grand which is this Saturday. But check this site every so often in case someone plans another get-together. Believe it or not, but we had a get-together last year in the Napa Valley for Northern Ca. Eric and I live in Calistoga, so not far from you at all. Hope to see you soon.

We are planning on being there around 10:30. Hopefully, we will have no problems with traffic. We are bringing Ken and Claudia with us. I think Bernadette thought we should be there around 10:30.

We were in the city on Wednesday, and it was a nice day. It should be a nice day tomorrow, but I always throw a jacket in the car when going there. On Wednesday, it was nice, but there was a huge bank of fog on the Golden Gate Bridge, and we could only see the towers .

Then 10:30 it is. We're in the city now and the weather is beautiful, low 70s with minimal wind.

I think is it supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow. So was thinking of wearing a dress with a sweater? Ken wants to wear shorts and a shirt...hopefully he will get into the dining room. What do you think, should we dress for colder weather as might be a breeze? Thanks, Claudia

I think your proposed attire will be fine. You might want to take a light wrap (though you'll likely end up leaving it in the car).

Had a great time at the BVE. The weather was incredible (nice break from the 100 degree temperatures at our home). Wandered around the ship and chatted with crew that we sailed with on the Grand to Hawaii at the end of April. Then had a nice lunch in the Da Vinci dining room. Also replenished our stick of Future Cruise Credits -- we had used the last ones to book our 2015 around Australia and New Zealand cruises.

There were 5 couples, Claudia & Ken (Kennykat), Dall & Pat (Cruisingrandpa), Bobbe & Frank (bfmac), Bernadette & Eric (timetravler), and Barb & I. We had a group photo take at lunch using Claudia's camera and I think she or Ken will post it.

What a great way to have a meet & greet.

It was a beautiful day in the city! Enjoyed the ship and our cruise critic friends. I have a picture to share and need to figure out how to get them on this site. I am sorry we didn't get everyone in the picture as Dall and Pat and their grandson are missing from the picture. The dining table wasn't large enough for all of us to sit together. It was a wonderful experience and wished we could have sailed away to Alaska.
