    Mark and Julie, returning 4/25 to 5/2. I have not had a Red Stripe in 2 years. Or a Bob Marley. Golf anyone?

    Last year I/we where on the the "April 2014" post but had to cancel our 30th wedding anniversary celebration, so we will be doing a belated 30th/early 31st celebration, April 7th thru the 13th....really looking forward to checking out the Negril resort, 4th Couples trip, prior 3 visits to CTI.

    Some of us are now in the double digits (94 days for us ). We were lucky enough to spend a week at CSS in December. It was very nice, but it confirmed that we are definitely CN people. And since it rained nearly constantly for much of that trip, it stripped away any guilt we had about coming back so soon. We are really looking forward to the CN beach.

    Jim and Karin booked for April 15-22. Will be celebrating 40th wedding anniversary a little early (it is in June) and recent retirement. We are returning guests with CN being our favorite. Have been the week before Christmas the last 2 times but have also been in the spring. Looking forward to returning in the spring.

    bert....I recall you were the keeper of the list on last years April's thread. Got any helpful hints for a rookie to CN(not to Couples)?

    Helpful hints, hmmm...that is a tough one.

    1. Think about when you might want to go to Otaheite (the "fancy" restaurant) and if you want to go on the catamaran cruise. You will want to make your reservations as you are checking in so you have a better chance of getting what you want (both of them fill up sometimes). The reservation desk is right inside the lobby.

    2. If you are not a certified diver but have an interest and can commit to 4 hours (training + dive), the introductory course with 30' dive is great. They will try to encourage you to get certified through them, but I never want to commit to 2 full days of training. But I have done the introductory dive a few times and it is really great. The dive team guys at CN are outstanding.

    3. Dirty Banana at 10:00 a.m. (bar opening time) is a great way to start the day. My wife asks for an over-proof rum pour on top (and calls it the Filthy Banana). We have been known to have a Dirty (Filthy) Banana at 10:00 then do the water aerobics at 11:00...that's always fun.

    4. Meet Linda & me at the pool bar for a cocktail around 2:00 p.m. on 9-April (we land at 12:05 p.m. and will likely take TimAir...if lucky, we will be at the pool bar by 2:00 or 2:30...I hope I didn't just jinx us! ). I will be the guy wearing the woven palm hat that I get every year from Dennis the hat man.

    5. Do what ever you want (as much or as little). It's all good at CN!

    Default Repeaters Dinner

    We are so excited!! 90 days!!

    I have a question for those that have been to the repeaters dinner. My husband and I are vegetarian, and I hear that the food is the best at the repeaters dinner, and I have also heard that the chef will make a vegetarian dinner for us with no problem. My question is, if you were a vegetarian, would you go to the repeaters dinner? Do you think it would be worth it? I'm just not sure that the food would be all that over the top, if all they make us is a salad, right? What all goes on at the repeaters dinner? Is it really 3 hours long? If the vegetarian food isn't all the rave, is it worth going for any other reason? When we were there in 2013 we didn't end up going to Otaheite at all. If we go to the repeaters dinner, should we make another trip to Otaheite? Any input on the repeaters dinner would be welcomed!!

    Also, I heard that they are making a veggie bar/juice bar at Negril that was supposed to open this month. Does anyone know if that happened?

    We are so excited to be going back!! We can't wait!

    Bostonwalt - my wife and I were discussing your question and she suggested another tip...concerning tips:

    6. Consider keeping some small bills in your beach bag. I am not certain at which Couples properties you have stayed in the past, but CN has beach musicians who are lots of fun and work for tips. Also, the catamaran cruise staff are NOT Couples employees and they also can be tipped (and there is a subtle expectation of such).

    If we think of anything else we will pass it along.

    Bert,

    Thanks for the hints....did have a couple others items...Sunset Bar, Margaritaville trip...I understand 5pm pickup for the Sunset bar but for Margaritaville? seems early.

    Will gladly meet you on the 9th for a cocktail. We will be easy to find, one of us will be wearing something Boston, usually me. We both have matching twisted palm tree tattoos. Bob Marley's all around?
    Peace,
    BostonWalt
