    Great Trip Report John & CJ!

    On this part, "Premier membership- For those wondering if it would be worth it, we didn't see it. Our room was about as good, the line at the premier bar was the only one at the resort, the few additions food items didn't seem that great and I want a boat full of people and not an empty yacht.

    Theme nights- They are subject of much discussion. They seem far less important to the people who are there. We spent a lot of time planning. Our only real success was bringing all the Hawaiian leis on the boobs cruise (your welcome). We built costumes for ABC but with the switch to anything goes, we found ourselves the only couple in ridiculous dress for like 20 minutes. We left when the room was filled with 100 straight people. I am sure you all picked up the slack after we left, but disappointed."

    On membership, imo the best add-on which comes from membership is ironically not at TTR/Desire resorts, but when you travel elsewhere. We have literally saved over $10K in 3 years with our membership on trips to Hawaii and the other locales int he Caribbean.

    On participation for theme nights... it's the literal "key" to the party vibe.

    People! Here is the lesson!

    Get in touch with people here on CCC BEFORE you go, build a "crew," literally, of mutual participation (read accountability) if you want a good turn-out for a particular night, or week, of themes. Otherwise, the apathy that a good vacation brings on will kill the vibe completely for your theme (not the fun time, that never really dies out) but the themes can be dead before they get started if you don't try to build it up before you go.

    $0.02.
