We're doing another double dip to CC!! YIPPIE!!
 
Last year we booked a cruise while we were on our last cruse. And I waited and waited and waited for one of two cruises that I really wanted to come up in 2013 or 2014, and our first choice was a Double Dip back to CC which is what we did on our last cruise!! :surfweb:

So I called last night and was told, NOPE, there's none scheduled!!! So I started searching for an alternate choice and low and behold I found a 5 night DD on the Magic on October 20th, 2013!! :banana::banana::banana: And, to top that off when we were on the Magic last time we had two adjoining rooms, DIRECTLY across from the laundry. So my DW said that she would be happy if we could get the same rooms... I GOT THEM!! pixiedust:

We're both thrilled, even if it is just a 5 day and not a 7, but being in CC twice makes it all worth while!!! :thumbsup2

Time to start planning our FE gifts!!! :cheer2:

Welcome :) We're so excited to go too! This will be our first cruise.

That's so odd that they told you there wasn't a double dip! It's funny, I actually resorted to googling "double dip castaway cay" to find out when there was one planned. Seems like sometimes the enthusiasts know more than the call center staff! Either way, I can't wait!

Hmm, that looks very intriguing for us October cruisers! Thanks for sharing!

My first cruise was on the Disney Magic & she will always have a very big spot in my heart! Love the Magic & the DD on CC! Prepared to be addicted!

It is out of Miami!

This is also the very first sailing after the infamous 2013 extended dry dock. BIG surprises are expected!

Well, we've only ever been on one cruise. It was our honeymoon on The Big Red Boat. That was the year the Magic debuted.

So we got to the port and saw our ship and were marveling at how big it was. But then we saw the Magic next to her and were in awe with total ship envy! I told DH I really wanted to go on it one day. We never did get to go on a cruise. So now 15 years we finally get to go.

I chose this one because it was cheaper than the Fantasy. I wish it was 7 nights but I saw that it was a DD right after dry dock which I thought was pretty special.

In the end, I'm glad it's the Magic. It's like we've come full circle. Plus, we aer not crowd people and my youngest gets sensory overload with too much going on. I think the smaller ship is a much better choice for us anyway.

I had called earlier this year looking for a DD in 2013 and kept being told "no"!! So when some dates in 2014 opened up I started looking again to see if they had one and was still told "no"!! Then I decided we were just going to find a cruise to go on since we want to go to WDW in a few years!! Luckily I found this sailing with the DD to CC myself!! :cool1:

My only concern since I think it'll be more expensive to fly there from NJ!! :scared:

Hurrican Season?
 
This cruise sounds awesome, but I worry about Hurricane's. Is this time of year prone to Hurricane's? :confused3

Not really something worth worrying about as a whole given that half the year is hurricane season. And for the most part they do a good job at staying away from them if there happens to be one.

I am *highly* considering changing our 7-night Fantasy Western Oct 12th 2013 to this cruise and back-to-backing it with the 2-night cruise to no where immediately following......

Pros:
-Back on the Magic!!!!! ;)
-a double dip (we've been on 2 already)
-we would be Platinum after completing both cruises
-first cruise after dry dock (cool!)

Cons:
-Over double the drive (Port Canaveral is 2 hrs; Miami ~4 hrs)
-Unfamiliar with Port of Miami
-DD would miss 5 days of school instead if 4 (she has Oct 18th off during the Fantasy cruise currently scheduled) & it's possible an event-heavy week at school
-B2B process could potentially be a pain in the rear....
-it will be a few hundred more dollars than the cruise we are currently booked on.

Hmmmm.....shall ponder......

A couple of things to consider....just because there are rumors that big changes will be made on the magic in the end no one has any idea and there may or may not be anything really different besides cosmetic stuff.

the b2b will be hectic with a lot of new cruisers and could be a little more party ish....plus you would repeat two menus and such
