Don't forget Sarasota is not far south of Tampa & is beautiful!! (I'm biased I admit it) OR Orlando is only about an hour's drive from Tampa as well. Actually, if people are interested, maybe we can do a group excursion to Disney before or after the cruise too

I PMd Jan today to book. I was going to do a balcony, since I'm so spoiled, but I convinced myself to book an outside and spend the savings in the casino. I sure look forward to meeting everyone, I might even have some hair by then (I hope). This will be so much fun, I hope everyone that can go, will. We'll probably just drive down the night before (after work) and then head back, since we'll be doing a Princess cruise in either October, November or December. It is really wierd f-mattox, I thought for sure we'd meet on Princess. I have sailed Carnival 4 times before, but after my first Princess cruise, I haven't wanted to go back. But for this, and to help charity, I'll be there grinning from ear to ear!
Carnival needs to take note! having f-mattox and penny BOTH onboard would be worthy of a commercial! Gotta get Sonny on there somehow too!
We are planning to go also but cannot confirm until the date is a little closer.

I should be able to get an extension. So everyone keep asking you friends, neighbors, relatives, coworkers, etc. to join us on this cruise.
I also came up with an idea to raise more money for the charity. How about everyone donate 10% of their casino/bingo winnings on the cruise.
IslandCruz, it sounds like you and I are in the same casino. I would be happy to donate a jackpot percentage, if I could just hit one My hubby always tells me we could go on another cruise with the money I loose, bad thing is, he's probably right
Well, I'll do my best to get on this cruise, but I just can't make any final plans this far out. (I can for me, but not for the rest of the family). Please let us know what the booking deadline is going to be.
