Yes, at this point it's a long way off but I'm excited. This will be our 2nd trip to CSS. We absolutely loved it last year. We were there for 7 days. This time we've bumped it up to 10! 10 glorius days at Couples Sans Souci!
We'll be there from August 30 to September 9th, 2012.
Plus, 2012 is Jamaica's 50th anniversary of their independence! Should be a party somewhere! ;)
For any of you first timers, you can see our complete trip in the below links. Believe me, you will love this place!

I'm sure we'll be at couples next September. We're just waiting until after this years trip to decide if we'll be at CSS or will we head back to CSA.
We thought about going somewhere different too but after checking the other sites and the number of potential guests we decided to go back to CSS. We absolutely loved it there! I can't wait to go back.

Just found out that a few more friends may be joining us during our stay! Can't wait to be back in Sans Souci!
We just got back from trip #2 and are set for #3 - Sept 8-15. We agree with Cigar Dude - the place just does something to you. We usually come back from vacations so tired but not from CSS/SSB. It's our time to
drop off the face of the earth and do nothing!!! Let the new countdown begin.
We'll see you there jdd914...for one day anyway!
We got confirmation from the other couple considering going with us. They're in!
Can't wait to get back!
September CSS 2012
We have booked for CSS Sept 12 through 19. It will be our 3rd trip to CSS...the last time was Sept 2009. I think we missed Cigar Dude by a few days the last time we were there!
We just got back CSA a few weeks ago and we are already missing Jamaica!!! We are going on our 8 th trip to Couples and we are spreading the word. This next year our daughter will be married at CSS and some family from both sides will be attending. So all you Septemberites, if you are available September 15th for a sunset wedding ceremony, come join us!

I am sitting here at work and just looked at the weather forecast - Wednesday has our first prediction of snow. A pretty low chance of only 30% but....Sept seems so far away. Hmmm, I guess I'll have to start hinting about us going on a Jan/Feb trip too. Thank goodness for this message board - it always brings a little daily sunshine in my life.
When will you be at CSS? September...?

We are booked for the 12th to 22nd. 5th trip to Couples 2nd to CSS.
The count down begins! We are ready to laugh are cracks off with Carole and Colin again!
What about booking air fare for September?
Anyone know of any deals at this point or are you waiting to book closer to departure?
Thank you so much for sharing your pics! I am looking for a place for my husband and I to go for our 10th wedding anniversary Nov 2012...and I'm really getting sold on CSS!!!! Your pics may have just sealed the deal! ;)
Thank you for posting your pics! I am looking for a place for my husband and I to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary (Nov 2012) and have been looking at CSS...your pics may have just sealed the deal!!! ;)
Well, thank you! And believe me, pictures don't do the place justice! Just wait, you'll see!

8 months from tomorrow we'll be at CSS for 10 days!
Can't wait!!!!!!! :) :cool:
Looking forward to 2012 just to be able to say that we are going back to CSS this year instead of "next year". We find that we talk about our trips in language that makes it seem not so far away - like this year instead of next, counting months instead of weeks and days... I never like counting days till it gets in the double digits.
We did just find out we will need to switch our dates as well - looking more like we will be there late Sept (have to see how we can get our vacation time off switched around). Hopefully it wont be too hard to get our reservation changed.
Happy New Year Everyone !!!
We just added another couple to our trip! And, there's another one who's thinking about it. Always good to have plenty of friends join us. There's no way they'll be disappointed! WE LOVE CSS!!!! :)
Sept 16 to sept 23
My husband and in will be at CSS sept 16 to sept 23! This is our first time and were very exciting! We will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Any suggestions for newbies would be much appreciated!
When you get there take some time to get the lay of the land, so to speak. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, as you will see.

It takes about 45 minutes and your guide will take very good care of you. Buy some water shoes, which are very inexpensive, and you're set! Try to go when the cruise ships are not in town. You'll move much quicker and have more fun.
You may also want to visit Margaritaville in downtown Ocho Rios. It's one of the largest and has it's own pool. It's set right on the ocean too! Prices for drinks are a little high so be prepared. Don't go when a ship is in dock as there will be hundreds of people there! The resort can tell you when ships are in town so you know what days to avoid them.
The restaurants are great at CSS. A couple nights we decided to have dinner outside at the beach bar/restaurant. They server many of the same dishes as the main restaurants and you don't have to wait long. The main restaurants move at Jamaica speed so be prepared to be at dinner a minimum of 1 3/4 hours and more likely 2 hours! The food is great though so if you're in no hurry, and why would you be, you'll have a great time.
We are returning for our second trip to CSS in September and mostly we won't leave the resort. There is everything you need there and as I said before, it's a beautiful place. It is very relaxing. You'll love it.
If you would like you can see pics of our trip by clicking on the first post in this thread. You'll get a good idea of what to expect.
Thank you Cigar Dude for the great information! Your photos are beautiful and we are very excited to go! Only 255 more days!
Have a great time when you go!
