Hee Hee about the extra room. I too have an extra room as a shul, at the Island Palm :) :)

I have a question - I was able to get tickets to go to Freeport and so were a few of my friends - but we're going to separate hotels - Since we each registered separately, and we each will get one room, will there be a problem if we skip the other hotel and stay in one hotel, two in a room?  Will anyone check?

I very highly doubt anyone will care about that.
Have fun and write a trip report!

Usually there are few restrictions bringing food to the Caribbean, but don't try to bring food back!

I am wondering why no one posted any info regarding their trip?  I'm looking forward to going to Freeport soon and am curious as to what to expect from this deal.  Any feedback from anyone?

As soon as I saw the deal I booked tickets, what's there to lose, its free. I couldn't go but I called Orbitz and after much convincing (saying the right things to the right people)  they gave me a refund minus a fee. I didn't pay a cent and they gave me money.
Thanks Dan, it really was a great deal.

My total was $0. Since I cancelled the same day they gave me a refund, money back, even though I never paid anything.
