What do you guys on the Feb 4 2006 Easstern cruise think of this??


Instead of meeting on deck above the pool...how about meeting in our cabin?

We are in a suite, and it looks like we can have the concierge bring in a bunch of goodies! I saw where someone did that and the staff catered it with trays of food and treats!!

Say like 2:30 ??

Cabin 8532

Deck 8
Starboard side by the middle elevators.

It sounds like a great idea but I wonder if it is a little to early since people would just be boarding then and making reservations and all.

Another quick question do you have children? What are their ages?

I have two DD age 10yrs. & DS age 9yrs.

OK, well I'll let the group choose the time.

We have early dining so it should be before 5:30. Id like to be on deck on when we sail out.

Anyone have a better time suggestion?

As for the kids, Kim is 10, Dan is 9 and Melanie is 6

Wow! What a wonderful offer. I think it would be a fun way to meet other people and I must admit I would love a chance to see the inside of a suite. We are open to just about anytime - either shortly after boarding or even on another sea day.

You might want to add a link from the other Feb 4th thread and see if you get more responses.

I think that's a great idea and that way we would have no problems with trying to figure out who is who.

Hi - I was reading the idea about meeting in the suite. I wondered is this open to all the people that are on this thread for the Feb. 4 cruise? I have been reading the boards but until now I have not really gotten involved in writing anything. But now I am getting so excited I think it will help the time go by that much faster and I will get to know some new friends.

Everyone reading this is invited to our suite for the DIS meet!


The more the merrier!


We all just need to agree on a time.......

Bill, We appreciate the offer of your suite. What time is the life boat drill? Now that I think about it, 2:30 to 3:00 might be the only time between geting on the ship and lifeboat drill and sailaway party and then that bumps into early seating. We are in late seating. My wife and I are open to any time or day for that matter. We've never been in a suite. My son is 9 and would look forward to having someone to hang out with. My daughter is 10 and she will be on the cruise with her 10 yr old girl cousin but is more than happy to have other friends. Thanks again for the offer.

IIRC the lifeboat drill is at about 4 ish.


This way we can get together and get up on deck for the sail away party.

I like to get the kids up front so I can take pictures of them from the area near the stage.....

Bill,
Thanks for making such a great offer. It will be nice to see what a suite looks like. What a treat! I think that the 2:30 time is perfect for meeting with all that comes later. We have early seating at dinner. I hope that we won't be the old foggies of the "dis" ers that are meeting. It seems like most of the people I have read about have small children. Oh well, with age comes wisdom, right?

Bill - I totally think we should move our meet to your suite! What a great idea. 2:30 should work, since we have to go back to the room @3:45 to get "dressed" for the lifeboat drill at 4:00.

Then those who want to can meet up again at the sailaway party. Awesome!

Can't wait for a margarita on board - somehow, they taste so much better with the salt air blowing around... :sunny:

Thanks for the offer! Our kids will want to meet yours. Martin is 9 and Carly is 6.

I agree that 2:30 sounds like the best time to meet.

OK, by popular demand................


We will plan on meeting in our suite at 2:30.

Its Cabin 8532, Starboard, Midship, Near the elevators.

I will get ahold of the concierge as soon as we get on board to bring in some goodies.

We plan on getting to the port at 10ish.

For the most part we will be seated on that semi circular couch thats near that big glass areas where youc an go out to see the ship.

Well if you are going to be the only "old foggies" there my husband and I may be the only ones there with no kids! That is if I can get him to go! This is really awesome that you are coordinating this Bill and it seems like a great way to meet some new people especially as this is our first cruise! :banana: :cheer2:

I was thinking the same thing. Do you want us to bring some wine or other beverages? Since we're driving, it's easy for us to pick up some stuff to bring onboard. I can bring some juice boxes for the kiddies, too. I'm sure I'll be at Target the night before, anyway, panicking over something.

Really - you'll be at Target the night before? Do you think we can get a group rate if we all shop at the same time for the same things??? :goodvibes

Let's see... sunscreen, travel size shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, and anything else that comes in travel size that just MIGHT come in handy, toys for plane ride, extra batteries for camera... did I miss anything?? :confused3

I'll need an extra suitcase for all this stuff - oh goodie, I can buy it at Target!

Sure BYOB


If you like.


We are stopping at the store the day before, but we are not wine drinkers.... so unless I can get the concierge to bring some in.....

I already sent the email to Debbie@ DCL and she said she would pass it on to the concierge tem on the Magic.

OK, to try to keep track of who is going to be meeting, I set up an email address.



Email and let me know

1: When do you plan on getting to the terminal?

2: Can you make it to a DIS meet in cabin 8532 at 2:30 ???
Here is the email address:

And I thought I was an organizer! I'd love to see what your pre-cruise packing list and suitcase look like! :rotfl2:

Seriously, thanks for doing this. I'm ready to start packing... :teeth:
