Come join us for a great BB party aboard the Jolly Pirate for a sunset sail and dinner immediately following at MoomBa's. Your option of doing both, or just cruise, or just dinner, but we'd love to have everyone for the full event. A good time guaranteed!

powrbkr and donnaval, that would be great. There are already about 25 of us signed up from here and the www.aruba-bb.com forum. We did this last year and had a wonderul time and if you would also like to stay afterwards for dinner, the owner of the Jolly Pirate ship, Carla, will be our host there as well and there are lots of fun prizes!

Please check the special website she has set up for us for the dinner menu if you are interested.

Hope to see you there!

Chris

Chris--it's a go for us, too, so add four more to your total! Joe and Donna, and Dom and Lynn.

This is our first time--I assume that the rope swing means it would be a good idea to wear a swimsuit????

Also, we'll be at the Costa Linda, and we have a car, but would it be a good idea (hic) to take a taxi instead?

Donna, did you sign up on the website? If not, you need to do that and your option of just the cruise, just dinner, or both. The menu is up on the website as well.

If you are daring enough to do the rope swing, I'd wear a bathing suit and bring your towel..and then a change of clothes! I'm not that brave!

Also, drinks flow very freely on the JP....so a taxi might be a good thing!

We're at Costa Linda as well and will be driving (DH not much of a drinker - maybe one Strawberry Daq or glass of wine) so if it works out we'll give you a ride back. He'll need to take me anyway because I'll be going to the Alhambra next door to gamble. He plays poker at the Rad so he'll drop me and swing back to the Rad. We're in 4033 from Feb. 24 thru March 17. (my fingers tried to type May lol - that WOULD be great). See you at pool aerobics!

Chris--maybe I'll take along my "The Donnas" T shirt and wear it that night, it's a good party shirt.

lvhmbh--that you so much for the offer, that is so sweet! There will be four of us, though--are the cars in Aruba as small as I hear, and if so, would we all fit lol. Even if we can't ride together I'm sure we can meet up at the resort. I've never been to Aruba, or the Costa Linda obviously, so don't know what in the world to expect. Pool aerobics, huh? That sounds good.

She will also be our "host" for the cruise and dinner...and during the dinner, she has prizes she gives away...some of them are tee shirts with the JP logo, jeep tours, banana bus excursion, etc. A very fun evening. Here is the info on her webpage about it....if you decide to go, you need to register on her special webpage which is:

Great! Looking forward to meeting you! I forgot to mention also, to everyone that is going...if you are a vergetarian, then you may additionally order one of their vegetarian dishes.

This is going to be so great! This will be our niece & nephew's very first timeshare stay, and it will be so nice to let them see first-hand how friendly timesharers really are. Can't wait.

My niece's name is Lynn, so she's not a Donna, but my nephew is Dom, so he's close!
