Hey again guys!
Like JWJax said, the roll call on cruisecritic is a bit more active than here. I have set up a meet and greet - we'll meeting up on the Verandah deck, starboard, aft by the waterworks immediately after muster. Basically the furthest back right hand corner. If anything further is planned, I'll post both places.
For anyone who hasn't tried a meet and greet, I would suggest it! It is zero pressure to hang with a group, but instead just a chance to meet a couple people that you will run into occasionally on board. It's always cool to just be able to say hello to someone on deck, or have a quick chat while standing in one of the inevitable lines!
There is someone on cruise critic that lives in Jax (her user name is APDMOM) , and takes pictures of individual cruises leaving port. I have asked her to pencil in our sailing if weather and timing cooperates. I thought it would be cool to have a chance to get our picture taken of us waving to her! Here is a pic she took and the location we'll be gathering at:
APDMOM also has a great review of the ship in a thread titled "we struck gold on fascination". Lots of pictures, and she just sailed in July, so it's pretty up to date. Just run a search on the carnival cruise lines forum.
BTW, my screen name on CC is Bucket_O_Beer4John. Dunno what ever possessed me to choose that name!
Only 82 more days!
