7/9/11 - Summer Magic in the Med

I know it's almost 2 years away, but I'm so excited about this cruise. I had dummy booking that I made onboard last year when we were on the EB PC Repo and yesterday my TA moved it to the med cruise. It's just my son and I, who'll be 9 when this cruise rolls around.

Who else will be joining us?

You beat me to it I was just getting ready to start a thread for this. I'm traveling with my mom Nancy and my brother Matt. All adults. This will be our second med cruise we sailed with Disney the first time they were over and loved it. We had a Baltic cruise booked but due to some medical issues had to change to this cruise. I'm looking forward to it because they are going to the ports we loved and added some new ones.

I'm sorry you're missing out on the Baltic, but how cool that you'll be getting to go to the Med for a second time, especially since you'll get to experience some different ports. I'm looking forward to hearing about your prior cruise. I wonder how many people on the cruise will be former Med cruisers.

We really enjoyed the first med cruise. It was actually our first cruise ever so we made a few mistakes but are definitely going to be doing things differently this time. Last time we did not go over to Barcelona early enough. There is a lot to see there and you need time to get over the jet lag. We also went straight home after the cruise. We were so tired that the flight home was miserable. This time we are doing 3 nights before to sight see and get over jet lag and one night after. Barcelona has a great hop on hop off tourist bus that goes to almost all the major sights and has narratives of what you are seeing in English. The airport was a nightmare. They do not believe in lines at all and getting through customs was really confusing. Last time we booked our hotel on our own and needed to get a taxi. You have to wait your turn for one and the driver spoke no English. I had a picture of our hotel and the address in Spanish to show him. This time we booked through Disney so we would not have to worry about that.

I'll have to keep that in mind about maybe booking an extra day in Barcelona at the end of the cruise. I had figured we'd go straight from the cruise to the airport. We'll be coming from London before Barcelona. This will be my son's first trip to Europe, so I was planning on spending a week in London before the cruise and then maybe a couple of days in Barcelona. I just have to see how much time I can get off from work and how much this will all cost me.

Jet lag won't be a problem for y'all since you will already be over there. We booked the day after because last time we were at the airport by 9 am and our flight did not leave until four. We could not even check into our flight when we got to the airport because it was so early. That and we were so tired from the cruise which is not a relaxing one that it would have been nice to catch our breath before dealing with customs both in Barcelona and back in the US.

I saw where they had done that to those later cruises. It will be interesting to see what they will end up doing. I figure most of the excursions for our cruise will be the same as the ones for this upcoming summer. The only thing that may change is if an excursion does not sale well or if there is not positive feed back it will be dropped.

Welcome IrishCowboy. Will you be sailing with us in 2011?

In case I don't get back on before happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone too!!

I have to say I'm very curious about what's going on with the later cruises. I'm very excited about our Med cruise, but if they moved the TA back earlier into the summer it would be very tempting.

We would love to do a TA but it would have to be in July as that is the only time i can get off. If they offered a July cruise going to Venice we would probable switch since except for the three new ports we have already done this cruise before.

Excursions are up on DCl's website. A few are the same as the previous med cruise which is good because we actually wanted to do the Pompeii Sorrento and Capri excursion again. There are some really interesting ones one in Naples that includes a special lunch sounds like a lot of fun. Just have to wait and see what works and what doesn't and what they will change before our cruise. We do have the advantage of trip reports being done before we book excursions.

fish extenders anyone?

Hi all ~

We are new to this posting thing, but are so excited about this cruise! We are traveling with a 12 year old boy and 10 year old girl, who have never been to Europe, and we just heard about fish extenders - any of you doing that on this cruise?

Hi, all. My family and I are on this cruise and I have a question.

I thought a couple of weeks ago the all aboard time for Naples had been moved up to like 7 p.m. but now when I look at the site it is back to 9 p.m.

So is this correct, we have until 9 p.m. to get back on the ship? I sure hope so!

TIA!

On a side note, looks like the ship is nearly full, too. I have to say I was hoping it would be a little light
