So some of you have seen my post on the vegas chat section that we are taking an Alaskan cruise out of Seattle and found that stopping in Vegas going both ways was cheaper that going straight to Seattle, spending a night etc. In addition to saving a couple hundred on flights and couple hundred on the Seattle room, we have free rooms, free limo and $450 free play each way. Quickly turned into a no brainer, especially for a Vegas addict. So told my son who just booked his flights to Seattle, but less than the 24hour cancellation. A short time later, SonofSandsFan had rebooked for a Vegas stop as well. I learned of this "cost savings" plan from a Vegas friend on the cruise who told me several from Florida were stopping enroute to seattle. Now we have a total of 11 who will be at the Rio and on the flight to Seattle. I think we have 30 to 35 cabins in the group we are tagging along with who are mostly gamblers. Ok, enough of that, on the way, we will arrive in Vegas 8/7 9:45PM and fly out 8/9 7:00AM. Less than 36 hours so we have planned carefully to: stop at Super Liquor for beverages to fill our cruise rum runners play the first night spa for my DW Saturday morning Gold coast for PingPangPong and first time to play there Taxi to Cromwell for bar play and visit our bartender friends Taxi to Lotus of Siam for incredible Thai food Taxi to Rio or maybe to Cosmo since I hear there is a meet and greet Play a little and repack for the cruise Sleep and limo to the airport So now I will try to post via Tapatalk with both phones to be sure I am ready to go.
