FINAL PAYMENT COLLECTION ~ I am NOT going to have a meeting for payment collections. I will post roommates and final balances this weekend (10/8). I will then email everyone to REMIND them about the final payment. I MUST RECEIVE by October 25th.

You will have 2 options for final payment to avoid any pay pal fees. *PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS IF USING A CREDIT CARD VIA PAY PAL. If fee's are incurred you will be responsible and I will collect from you directly.

Option #1 ~ This is the easiest for me. Send a check to Ellen Foster, 162 Main Street, Portland, CT 06480

Option #2 ~ *Go to your pay pal account. Go to MONEY. Go to SEND OR REQUEST MONEY. Choose SEND MONEY TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. This will avoid any pay pal fees at either end. My paypal email is ~ [masked]

New Option~ Marriott hotel, right across from Ft Lauderdale Beach Option

Choose the option for Friday and Saturday night or Saturday only. SEE SEPERATE EVENT PAGE. I've already booked and put down the deposit for 3 rooms, 3 in each room. I can get more if needed.

We're going to be in Fort Lauderdale so why not enjoy 2 nights and a full day by the pool or on the beach. I LOVE FT LAUDERDALE!

Rates per night (with a 3 member room share) Friday & Saturday night = $250 Per Person, Saturday night only $125 Per Person. We will UBER over to the hotel depending on what flights you're on.

Any questions or concerns, just call me[masked]

Once you book, your price is LOCKED IN regardless of the price updates, in fact, if the price goes down, the agent has been changing to the lower price.

You MUST answer the QUESTION asked when you RSVP.


Sunday, January 14th 5 PM ~ 50 Shunpike Rd, Cromwell

WE WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO ATTEND. Barbara Angelico will be your hostess at this "meet & greet". Many of those traveling on the Cruise have not yet met and we thought it would be nice to get together, have a few cocktails and chat.

We will have a list with all member's phone numbers. A few of you have sister's coming so we'll ask you to relay the info, unless their local and can attend the pre-meeting.

We will go over itinerary, excursions, who/what/when you will be arriving.

Please message or comment on site to Barbara so we'll know how many to reserve a table for.

Identification ~ Passports are suggested but NOT NECESSARY for cruising. The only time a passport would be necessary is if in the event of any emergency you would be flying back to the United States from one of the Ports. You must however have a Government issued up to date ID, such as a Driver's License. You also MUST have a Certified copy of your Birth Certificate for traveling. These items are YOUR responsibility.

Princess was the first line to popularize cruising for singles with their hit TV series, The Love Boat. Are you 40+, ready to have some fun and meet lots of new people? Now you can join us as this Love Boat sails the Western Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale in January! Average age for these popular single cruises is 57 (per the agen).

Airfare from Hartford or your local airport to Fort Lauderdale is your responsibility. My daughter lives in Fort Lauderdale so I fly there alot and rates at this time of year average anywhere from $250 - $400 Round trip. Jetblue has a straight flight but currently they are only booking thru January 3rd. Best time of the week to book a flight is a Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll check prices and give you updates.

The Port is only 10 minutes from the Fort Lauderdale airport. I'm sure there's a shuttle or we can call an UBER.

You must arrange to board at the appropriate times. Since the ship leaves on a Sunday, I'm sure many will want to fly down on Friday evening or Saturday. Get together and arrange your own hotels prior to sailing.

If you share your cabin with a friend the per-person prices are as follows ~ (See cabin photo's below). These prices include ALL TAXES & PORT CHARGES. Tips are NOT included. Tips are for cabin attendants, bartenders, pool staff, etc. (These are up to your personal discretion and are left at the end of the cruise should you wish to tip). Remember, airfare to/from Fort Lauderdale is your responsibility.

Final Payments for the cruise is OCTOBER 15TH, 2017. I will make arrangements to collect checks or money orders for final payments to avoid further pay pal fees.

Wednesday, January 31st ~ From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., experience Falmouth, Jamaica ( Falmouth is considered by many to be like the Colonial Williamsburg of the Caribbean. Take a stroll through Falmouth's Historic District and explore an impressive collection of nineteenth-century Georgian architecture. Visit the Greenwood Great House museum, and you'll find yourself in the middle of the 19th century. Take a romantic ride down the Martha Brae River on a 30-foot bamboo raft. Hunt for bargains in Water Square, where you'll discover the Albert George Shopping and Historical center.
