View Full Version : May 25, 2002 Magic - Who's Sailing?

With the new Springtime Magic rates, it seems that there will be quite a few of us on the May 25 cruise. Looking forward to seeing all of you.

Dave from Marietta has been kind enough to post some excursion information that other cruise lines offer. I agree with Dave and believe that DCL will probably offer many of the same excursion. Has anyone else given any thought to what excursions you may take? Stingray City sounds like alot of fun.

We also get to Castaway Cay 2 hours earlier. More time on Paradise!

We (dad, 20 yr old sister, and myself, 22) are sailing May 25. We definately want to see some ruins at Cozumel, visit the sea turtle breeding place on Grand Cayman and swim with the stingrays. Plus, who can resist two more hours at CC? What a great itinerary! We can't wait.

We will also be on the May 25, 2002 Western Sailing. We have had this cruise booked since January 2001 and was so excited to see the Springtime Magic Rates come out. I thought I had a pretty good rate because we booked so early, but when we re-did everything yesterday we saved over $1,000 on our Category 6 room. With my costco discount our cruise only came out to $3,033 for 2 adults (11 yo son, 7 yo daughter). We are so excited.

Count me in!

We'll be going for our first cruise and our honeymoon to boot on May 25th!

Can't Wait!

We're also there! Me (32) DH (30) and 13 year old DD. I think we're also going to do Stingray City.

That is a great rate! Over $200 better than what I got for a Cat 6, maybe I need to join Costco?

Hubby and I will be there too, our 1st cruise and 10th wedding anniversary! We just saved $1040. using the Springtime Magic Code with DCL--it really works great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband has always wanted to visit the ruins--other than that relaxing.......................ahhhhhh

Irish Cowboy,

I am not sure, but I read on these boards a while back that Costco quit booking Disney cruises. They were still doing it when I booked in January. My original rate from Disney was $4,459 and with Costco it came out to $4,059. I was not a member of Costco when i called and booked the trip. I had originally made the resv. with DCL and then transferred it over to Disney.

If you want, I can get you the number and you can try and give it a call. They take $10% off less the port charges. With the STM rate, I think the discount was $283. When talking with the agent yesterday, they are actually a separate agency from Costco.

What cabin will you be in?

If you have the number handy, I'd like to give it a shot.

We don't have a room assignment yet, just a category guarantee. We had 6034 last May and we were very happy with it, no noise and very little motion.

Costco Travel is does its agency out of a company called National Leisure Group, 100 Sylvan Rd., Suite 600, Woburn, MA 01801. The number that I dial (which I believe links to Costco, not sure) is 877-849-2730. Try it and good luck, maybe you can get the discount. That extra $300 will be part of our spending money. We will be in 6550.

Let me know how it goes.

We will be joining you. We had originally reserved a 7 day eastern for June 15, but thanks to this great board, we contacted Dreams Unlimited who changed us to a 7 day western beginning May 25. What a great savings--over $1,500 for the four of us in a category 6! But, we know nothing about the Western cruise--are the islands comparable to St. Martin and St. Thomas--and what type of excursions are available? Does anyone know any websites that would have any info. Thanks--See you in May!!!!

Yes! I finally booked our Disney Magic cruise #3. My DH, DS (10), DD (8 by cruise), and myself will be there. Also, my sis-in-law. (callahanjulie10). (#4 Disney cruise for them), and my brother, and DD (10), will all be there. We cruised 9/01/2000 and 9/02/2001 on Disney Magic both times. My Hubby said he wasn't going anymore, but ya know some times us women just have to make a decision. After all it's not the same itinary, it is the western carribbean this time. Feel free to e-mail me. We are looking for kids our kids ages to e-mail to until the trip. Bbethparsons@aol.com. :D :D :bounce: :pinkbounc What a GREAT price! Cheaper then September, hurricane season. YEAH!!!

Looks like there will be quite a few of us.

Still doing some research on excursions. Hopefully, the May 11 cruisers will have lots of tips and details for us.

Saw this post and wondered if anyone had more info on Costco? We took our 2nd Dis Cruise last year this same week and saved quite a bit with the STM discount and 10% Costco discount. Has anyone contacted Costco to see if they are still offering this discount?

01-02-2002, 09:59 AM
We will be on this cruise. 2 adults, no children, late 40's. Sailed the Western 2x before with Celebrity. Looking forward to returning to some of our favorite islands. Thought this was a really wonderful schedule. The port times are really great and the islands are the best. Can't wait.

01-03-2002, 10:49 AM
We will also be sailing with you on May 25th, 2002....We sailed with you last May, but never met you.
We will be in the same stateroom, 6012!!!!We are staying over the nite before at the port.

My family of 3 will be joining too. We booked this 7 days cruise (our 3 rd with Disney) while we were at our last cruise (4 days Wonder 10/28-11/1/2001), we paid $749 plus tax for adult and $349 plus tax for kid 3-11, cat 11. I think this is the best bargain we found especially for Memorial weekend cruise.
