PostSubject: Christmas Cruisers on QM2 2009 - A Question For You   Wed Nov 12, 2008 1:04 pm

Hi Everyone,

I've already notified Nina of my intentions so, now I'll put it to you. I'd like to cordially invite everyone that has booked or won a cabin on QM2 for Christmas 2009 to lunch or dinner at Todd English as my guests.

Nina informed me it's too early to select a date and, that will probably happen late next Spring, but, hopefully sooner. In the meantime, let's get an idea if you'd like to have lunch or dinner. So just post here so we can get a rough idea.

Ed

How about both? Wink Just teasing you Ed. Thank you for such a generous gift! It really doesn't matter - lunch might be nice since I know Nina and Tina are planning at least one dinner at Todd English.

If anyone needs to see menus, click the link below:

And, I'll just add that Leanna and I are planning our own special gift for everyone traveling with us - including all our Cruise Freek Friends - too.

I would do both Nick but, I do have another item that I don't want to mention yet but, I think everyone will like it... At least I hope so

Thank you Ed!! Lunch would be wonderful, maybe one of the days at sea.

Also, since we're making announcements - everyone on Cruise Freeks whether you're paying or a winner - will be receiving an invitation from my parents to a cocktail party on-board. Like Ed, Nina has informed us it's a bit early to pick a date but, I did want to let everyone know.

You're both welcome. And, I LOVE your parents cocktail parties! Always a lot of fun! Thank you for the invitation, I will be there!

Sounds great Marina! Like Ed, I always enjoy your parents cocktail parties, but, with this group, I doubt it will be in their cabin or is it?

We'll probably have Nina arrange it for another location, I don't think we could comfortably get everyone in the cabin - even if we open up both mine and my parents cabin, I don't think it would work. But, regardless, all are invited so stay tuned for details!

Todd English? Cocktail Party? Yes to both and thank you both for your generous offers!

I guess I better get my bid in now too. I already called dibs on the Holiday Crackers and, I'll be sending a bubbly gift to everyone's cabins Very Happy This includes everyone from Cruise Freeks on the QM2 sailing for Christmas.

If you don't already know - Holiday Crackers are a very English tradition. I know, I'm Irish but, it's still a nice tradition. I'm sure you'll know what I mean from the photo below and they're filled with little trinkets Very Happy

Will do - Nick and Eddie are yes to golf too. Waiting for Andy and anyone else that wants to join us. I think Nina mentioned James might be interested in joining us, so, we should have a good group!

And, while I've already accepted both invitations privately, I will gladly accept both invitations here. Thank you Ed and thank you Marina!

Yes - Nina and I have a lot of nice extra surprises planned for Christmas, so, hopefully everyone has a highly enjoyable time! Dinner at Todd English and another cocktail party in addition to the one Marina's parents are hosting can be expected - and a few more things that we'll keep as true surprises Very Happy

Now how could I turn down an invitation to Todd English with my screen name being English Todd Wink Thank you for your very kind invitation, I also accept and agree lunch would be delightful.

I would also like to accept the very gracious invitation to cocktails, that sounds lovely and I look forward to making new friends.

And, thank you to all who plan on such nice, thoughtful gifts. This is going to be a very special group, I can tell already!

WOW! I feel like I won the lottery or something! Very Happy

I've been on many different forums for a very long time. I moderate 3 others. I have NEVER ran across a more friendly, or giving bunch of people like here at Cruise Freeks! You people are the BEST! I'm almost speechless!

I'll be that guy walking around the city/ship with his jaw hanging down in disbelief for 2 weeks! Yay

THANKS EVERYONE! Count us in! Your generocity will be well received, and much appreciated!

Marina - you know we'll be there too.

And, thank you Patrick - bubbly and crackers will help make the sailing festive.

Very Happy You brightened an otherwise dull day for me!

Wow........you guys are one GREAT group!! I have to say that Cruise Freeks has been a joy since we found it. Such awesome people and haven't heard any negativity like some 'other' board.

Marina/parents and Ed...thank you for the thoughtfulness....We accept your invites.

Patrick---the crackers are awesome. We do those every year at Christmas and laugh our heads off as the whole family is at the dinner table wearing the silly hats...but it's tradition!!!

I was wondering what I was thinking doing a cruise at Cmas without my family (dd, sil and 4 kids live two doors away) and thought I would be sooo homesick but I can see that isn't going to be the case. I think this will be an active cruise with a lot of fun people! Thank you for that y'all!!!

Guess I better quit dreaming of cruising and get to work....it is the Christmas season and in this town that means 'shoppers spending $$$"...and that's always a good thing in retail!!

Ed, yes, thank you so much. Lunch would be wonderful!

Marina, I have never been to your parents' cocktail party before, like the others, but I wouldn't miss it for the world. Thank you.

Patrick, you are so sweet. Thank you.

Tina and Nina - I can't even begin to thank the two of you. If you ever need anything for this group, please let me know.
