Looks like we have a start time on the website!

July 22nd - 9AM Pacific, 10AM Eastern, 11AM Central, Noon Eastern

Sorry everyone else, I don't know your time zones, I'm at work, and am too lazy to look them up. :P haha
Oh yeah, I am in the game this year. That is the one whole in my schedule that week as it is 25th anniversary week and we are getting on a boat with no internet (well the boat has internet, but I am not using it) for the week the next day. On the night before (which is why the late start suits me as I am on the east coast) we are attending a concert in town for Chicago and REO Speedwagon. I will not have my usual big pledge this year cause bad timing, those boat trips are quite expensive and they always find a way to stick you with some form of bill at the end too. But, at least I an take a shot at backer #1, woohoo!

Thed. we do a lot of cruising (Big Boat W MEd in August, grad present for Youngest Offspring). The lines do NOT make their money on rooms...if you are in port the day they sail you can get an empty room for near nothing. They make nearly all their profit from Casino, Booze and Shore Excursions. If you can bring your own booze and are not a gambler, the extras won't surprise at the end.

Avoid shore excursions like the plague. We typically look ahead before cruise and order the same excursions from the same local vendors, but NOT with the ship. Savings? 20-70%, especially if you go at an off time (if circumstances allow that). Alternatively, we just arrange a taxi. Local cabbies overseas often know the tourist spots and will even show you around inside. We had a great cabbie in Montreal who took my mother-in-law, a serious Catholic, through a famous cathedral there. Cost? 1/2 the cost for the same trip with the cruise line...and it was one on one!! Warning: At some cruise stops, the local cabbies can be dangerous, check with the US Embassy in the country, ask for the security section (state department) and get a read on that. I also then check with the military attaché and ask the same questions...but I'm retired ARmy so I know the lingo. The attaché is less politically motivated to not diss the host country, but both are usually close together.

Oh, and they include room tip on the bill automatically. Every line we've cruised allows you to have this auto-tip taken off. I tell our stewards there is no auto-tip, we tip based on actual service. It makes a difference. Doesn't save us money - sometimes costs us, we tip extra for great service - but it does get better service!!

I usually have a mixed drink a day. I make a habit of using the same bar and bartender the whole trip. Small tips to him usually result in free or cheap drinks.

Just sayin'.

The race is on to be the first backer ........
I was #15 in KSV and unless I have a much better offer I plan to try and make it into the single digits in KSVI. I have no hope for being first.

Any Limeys working at DF?

I hope noone takes offense at that. If so, I apologize.
No offense taken as this counts as recognition therefore a win :)

But would be very interested in the answer
