OK, as repeaters who have been unable to return "home" the past two years, we have been horribly excited about our upcoming trip to CTI. A message board junkie like the rest of you, I read the board faithfully and always enjoy reading the reviews and updates about the newly-refurbished resort that we love so much. Lately, though, as I read the board... my "feel good" feelings haven't felt quite so good. I'm concerned after reading Randymon's responses to multiple problems at the resort. Nudity (naked people in the pool?), parties (toga and PJs), bringing big mugs so one can drink to excess at a quicker pace (?), and more. Am I the only one thinking how sad it is for Randymon to have to address this type of thing? This is COUPLES - not one of those "other" resorts.... which is why most of us choose to pay more. To come to a relaxing, ROMANTIC, intimate resort to reconnect with our loved one. I know for us, this trip is truly special - as we'll be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and my hub's 50th birthday. Do we plan on having some drinks? Certainly! Do we plan on reuniting with old friends we've met at COR/CTI in the past? You betcha! Are we quite sociable and hope to meet new people also enjoying their romantic time? Indeed! But the rowdy sounding parties and spring-break sounding behaviors truly have me wondering what we've done. Now I'm sure that I'll manage to rile some folks up with this post - which is NOT my intent at all. I guess I'm just venting my inner fears that seem to be growing daily - sort of interfering with my warm, fuzzy thoughts about our special trip that is coming soon - and yet still seems too far away. For anyone I may offend with this thread, please know that I don't begrudge you your "fun", I'm merely asking (hoping, praying?) that your idea of fun doesn't impact the other guests' opportunity for a romantic getaway.
