We are in. This cruise will keep our streak alive of WBPC cruises on DCL. My name is Alan. At time of sailing I will be 39, yikes. My DW is Dawn she will be a couple of years older than me. Right now we are in 7563. We do not plan on doing any type of FE or secret Mickey. If this cruise is anything like the one this coming up may, we will be in a balcony room. I work for SWA, and for this years WBPC they are offering a great deal on 5B so we jumped on it and will do so again if offered.

Nothing better than being on a relaxing vacation for two weeks especially on a DCL ship. Also it would normally drop me off at home but for whatever reason this time they are using San Diego instead of my home of L.A. It's the perfect trip.

Wow 5 pc with DCL, you must do it more for the 2 week vacation then the ports. So you are flying to Miami before the cruise?

Yes. I could care less about the ports. This cruise I may not step foot on land again after Key West.

I have added your thread to the cruise meet list :cool1:

Have a great cruise!

Helloooooo!

We are also booked on the 2014 WBPC! Crossing the canal has always been something the hubby & I have dreamed of. At the time of sailing I'll be just shy of the big 4-0 but the hubby will celebrate 42 onboard. Our boys will be 18 & 16. <--:eek: I'm slightly worried about the 18 yro having enough to do outside of Vibe. The 16 yro I'm sure we'll see at least at dinner every night. :lmao: We homeschool so I'm sure there will be some educational stuff snuck in on the boys by me.

We've sailed the Dream twice and the Magic twice. We'll be on the Fantasy at the end of May. Cruising seems to be the perfect fit for us at this stage in our lives.

Currently we are booked in an 05C, 6540. Going to be interesting to see how we handle that little space. The last 3 times we've sailed we've either upgraded to or booked 00Ts.

Lovin' the ports for this cruise! A full day in Key West is gonna rock! We looooove Key West! Both my sons have said, "I'm not getting off in Colombia!" When asked why they said, "Drug cartels. No, thanks." Sounds like we need to learn something to associate with Colombia other than cocaine production. :headache: The husband and I love the thought of some of the adventure excursions in Puerto Vallarta but we'll have to see when it gets closer to time how we feel about actually going on one. At this point we're cautiously optimistic about moving about in Mexico at all. I'll have to do more studying and reading first. Mostly we are looking forward to the relaxation overload. Oh YES!

Don't think we'll jump in with any fish extender exchanges.

So for the experienced long-cruisers...we'll have more than 1 formal night, right? I guess I'll go study some PC navigators to start getting a feel for things.

Looking forward to the next year+ of planning fun with new friends!

I would expect there will be 2 formal nights and 1 semi formal night. This years cruise also goes to Columbia. Just like this one after our day at CC I am not getting off the ship till we get to L.A. just like after Key West I don't think I will get off until we get to San Diego. Oh and welcome. I would reshop when you go on the Fantasy in May. I plan on reshoping when we do this cruise in May.

Thanks for the welcome! :wave2:

I'll definitely keep an eye on the pricing. We used an older "dummy" booking for this booking which saved us over $700. That was nice.

I thought the long cruises has 2 formal nights. We did tuxes for the guys and a gown for me on our recent 8-night Magic cruise and were one of maybe 2 families dressed that way that I saw. It was sorta odd. I think the cruise out of Galveston with the Kids Sail Free and all had a TON of first timers and probably many didn't even know there was a formal night. I'm totally on the fence with skipping the MDR for formal night on our upcoming May Fantasy sailing. The PC may get the same cold shoulder on those nights. We're waaaaay too laid back for all that. Cruise casual is dressy as I can stand. :lmao:

aan1701 02-17-2013 02:08 PM

I never miss the MDR. I hate dressing up but I will for those three nights and right after dinner I will change. No tux for me that's where I draw the line. I will wear my jacket and tie.

I visited Cartagena about 2 years ago and walked around just fine. You have to remember that these places are all geared mainly for tourism and the locals respect that. It's way different then flying into another major city in Colombia and just walking around. The locals know that a cruise ship is there and respect that, but that's just my opinion. I also just visited Mexico on a cruise and everything was very calm and the locals were all real nice. In my opinion, nothing to worry about.
