March 2nd, 2013 - Wonder 5-night from Miami

Hi There
Just thought I'd start a page incase, like me, you've been waiting for someone to start one! And wondering if there'll be anyone else on the boat!
I'm not even 100% sure we'll be able to make this trip, but here's hoping!
Sure looks quiet so far! Anyone?
Anita

Hi

I have been waiting for someone to start the thread. I was starting to think we would have the ship to ourselves.

There will be 4 of us : Mom, Dad, DS (17) and DS(14).

We have decided to take this trip as it will be DS(17)'s last chance to go to Castaway Cay as a teen.

Thanks for starting the thread

Just noticed you are from NB. We live in Quebec but I grew up in Shediac and my boys spend their summers in NB.

Looks like Quebec and NB will have the same March Break this year

Hi there!
So glad we won't be alone!
We've actually booked the flights now so we're definitely going!
We're from the UK originally but w've been in NB for 10 years now. Lovely place to raise the family. Quiet though! Need to travel!
Glad to have you join us.

Thanks!!! It didn't take too much to plan a cruise- just a few clicks and it was booked. I knew our first vacation with a kid wouldn't be riding camels in Egypt. I expected a slower pace and we booked a balcony room so I can lay outside while he naps. I don't expect excursions - and I escaped being stuck in a car with a million pit stops to change and burp or my greatest fear - being stuck on an airplane with a screaming baby. Cruises allow you to have your own little place to retreat to, to be social and to travel to different places!! I think I'll just bring a whole box of diapers.
Thanks for the advice!!

Big family cruisin'

So excited that my entire family is going - husband, daughter (age 3), my mom, dad, two bothers and a sister-in-law. This is our first Disney Cruise - and for many of the sailors - their first ever cruise. Any advice? Also, I was reading about the fish extenders. Anyone interested in doing that?

These are the tips I can think of off the top of my head.

If there is even the slightest chance one of you might get seasick I recommend ginger pills, they counteract the nausea and don't make you groggy at all, unlike Dramamine.

On our first cruise, we brought an entire 24 pack of water with us in a suitcase. By the end of the trip the water was gone and we had an extra suitcase to put our souvenirs and clothes in.

Guest services will also take 2 souvenirs per room to be signed by all the characters available for meet-n-greet onboard. Make sure you bring markers or something. We did a mat for a picture frame and a large white Vinylmation Mickey.

And remember that you can totally ask for seconds or thirds or even an additional appetizer/entree/dessert at dinner. Animator's Palette on the Dream had an amazing pasta appetizer, but it was really small, so we asked for two more to be sent to our table. Oh, and if none of the desserts particularly appeal to you or your kids but you still want something sweet, you can also get plain ol' vanilla ice cream. The servers do their absolute best to make sure you have anything and everything you want!

For the souvenirs signed by the characters - do you take that with you when you go to the meet and greet or leave it with guest services?

We leave with guest services by the end of the first day. They will return it to you by the last night.

Can't believe how quiet this group is! We are about 50 days away from our trip, and with the great Florida resident rate I figured this group would be poppin by now! I'll start a FB page as well and will post the link on here when I get it

Lets start a sign up for the Fish Extender game!! Leave the names of those participating, kids ages, and stateroom number.

Also would you guys be up for a quick meet and greet at some point?

Hi there from NB!

We've looked at a lot of excursions but have decided to do our own thing. We think we might get a taxi to Chankanaab National Park and then wander around downtown afterwards. The girls have a thing about buying sombreros!
There's a non-disney excursion called the Cozumel Amazing Race which looked lots of fun!
