Sad, only 11. We're adding 7 more in July. The saddest part is leaving.

We've done 0 nights, but booked our first Disney cruise for April of 2007. Unfortunately, we just don't have enough $$$ which would allow the month worth of cruising others have done. Maybe we'll go again after I've put my kids through college!

We've been on 12? cruises the 1st one being a 3 nighter on Wonder, with the rest being on the Magic.
We now only do cat 11/12's because we don't need a porthole or balcony, we are used to being on the "inside" and quite frankly its the same experience if we had a room with a view.
We did the Panama eastbound 14 nighter and paid a little under $1800.00 for the both of us, which is I think the Best deal we ever gotten on DCL(courtesey of Hurricane Jean loosing a partial night aboard the Magic).
We also had a category 11 on the repo cruise.
Now we are booked for the Westbound Med repo cruise in 2007, but we will be cruising on the 11 night Wonder in Sept and probably a few more.
I think the best cruise we had was the Magic Sailing the week after 911, it was an "empty" sailing lots of empty seating in the dining rooms. The ships now sail full all the time even in non peak seasons--how I wish that was true nowdays--so many repeat cruisers.

19 for us.
2 4-night Wonders
1 4-night Magic
1 7-night Magic

03-29-2006, 11:48 AM
We're at 11 so far, but we're adding 4 more in October and 7 more next April.

03-29-2006, 12:04 PM
Only 7, and that was 5 years ago. :guilty: With one DS starting grad school and the other just beginning his freshman year in college, another cruise will probably have to wait a little longer.

03-29-2006, 12:07 PM
41 days for us. Four 7 night cruises, three 3 night cruises and one 4 night cruise. We have three more 7 night cruises booked and one land/sea booked. Wonder if we will ever get tired of DCL?

03-29-2006, 01:18 PM
53 for us all on the Magic. The first one was a 3day land/4day sea back in '99 than starting in 2000 we have only gone on 7 days. I have named the Magic, Home Sweet Magic. It is our vacation resort destination every year. Kathy

only 171 nights for us

03-29-2006, 03:58 PM
Currently at 35 days - all on the Magic.

If all goes well that will jump to 46 in 2007. :sunny:

I guess we really need to try the Wonder one of these days :thumbsup2

03-29-2006, 04:08 PM
OK, no flames....
14 total cruises on the Magic.
2 4 day cruises
1 14 day cruise
11 7 day cruises

anyone got a calculator?

I think that makes something like 99 nights.....

But in fairness, you have to subtract 2 for the hurricane Jeanne cruise that was booked as 7 days but got changed to 5

Which brings us back to 97 nights.

10 more nights booked in September on the Wonder (first time), but we're going to have to change that, I think.

03-29-2006, 06:53 PM
Oh boy, the post prior to this makes our 32 days seem like nothing.

We've been on the Magic all 5 times, even w/ a 4 day. That was in '00 before they started the 7 day.

OK.... looks like ATIGEG may takr the cake for most nits on DCL here at 171! Anyone else wanna step forward and vote... perhaps with something higher? I guess we don't have any castmembers or crew lurking here! :confused3

03-30-2006, 01:33 PM
only 171 nights for us

reminds me of the Castaway Club reception where the cruise director tells us there's someone on board who has done more than 100 cruises. Of course it turns out to be the captain... :rolleyes:

We've done 7 days - the hard way (4 and 3). 4 more coming up this Dec!

03-30-2006, 03:00 PM
36 total here:

Wonder - 15
4 Night x 3
3 Night x 1

Magic - 21
7 Night x 1
14 Night x 1

03-30-2006, 03:28 PM
21 days on the Magic
4 days on the Wonder

& 7 more days on Magic starting 4/8/06

I think that DCL has become an addiction.


03-30-2006, 04:59 PM
All of our 61+ nites have been on the Magic. We started with DCL when the Magic like Tigger was the "only one". We did two 4 nites and have never looked back booking east and west 7 days every year since. I always poll the family want to try something new? The answer nope-the Magic may as well be our vacation home :)

2007 might be the year that takes us to RCCL because with one in college and one on the verge of college and the youngest who thinks her last name is Gates or Rockefeller-we might have to stay on this side of the pond .

03-30-2006, 06:15 PM
We've done 14 nights, with 7 more to add in September! :banana:

03-30-2006, 08:46 PM
but will sail this summer!! :cool1:

So as of this moment,,,,

We're had this poll up for precisely 50 hours and we've had 683 visits to the thread. That's averaging 13.66 visits an hour or one visit every 4 minutes and 23.5 seconds. Roughly 1 in 3 visits has resulted in someone placing a vote - of which we had 193 so far. That's an average of 3.86 votes an hour. A surprising 4.67% have sailed 51 or more nites on DCL, a respectible figure considering one person with 171 nites sailing has had the effect of 24x 7 nite nite voyages plus a 3 nite to top it off. In my case - by comparison for every nite on the DCL I've had this person has had 9! That's wonderful! And 22.8% responding have sailed 26 to 50 nites!. And 35.24% have sailed 11 to 25 nites. And this translates into a total of 62.71% having sailed MORE than 10 nites. I would consider this to be the majority of repeat cruisers who are also poll responding DIS enthusiasts this week. We might miss a few repeat cruisers who had 2x 4 nite or as many as 3x 3 nite voyages. But this probably constitutes the majority.

Of course, this forum community is really a gathering for DCL enthusiats. So one should expect a high porportion of entities here to be repeat enthusiasts, eh?

Oh well... THANKS to all who have (and may again in the days to come) chosen to resspond with their votes. It's interesting to see the WEALTH of experience we have with our DIS community. And it is nice to see that we do have a meaningful porportion of new DCL enthusiasts in the making who are probably discovering our friendly little community!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!!! In advance... bon voyage to all for their next sailings where-ever and when-ever that is to be in the future!!!!! :wave:
