We are booked on this cruise. We were on the Magic back in May, and we are on Carnival next week. We are really looking forward to the Fantasy though because the kids want to ride the Aquaduck...and I do too!

Have you sailed with Carnival before? The Disney Fantasy was our very first cruise and we couldn't be more pleased with the ship/service/etc. The AquaDuck is a fun waterslide

Hopefully you share with us your experience on Carnival vs. Disney.

Angie.

Yes, we have cruised Carnival and Royal Caribbean before, but the kids have only been on Disney. We are "cruise people" who would rather be on the water than almost anywhere else.
This will be the kids first Carnival cruise, but they have been begging to go back to a boat since we got off in May.

Was starting to think this was going to be an empty ship. Didn't really want to be the one to start the thread. My husband, my son (who will be 15 months at cruise time) and I will be on this cruise. We rebooked when we are on the Dream last year, with our son being a new addition that has never cruised. I have cruised Carnival before and prefer Disney. I think a lot depends on what type of activities you like as to which you prefer. My in laws would never cruise on Disney and love Carnival. Guess we won't be cruising together, my feelings aren't hurt.

I am taking my niece who will graduate in 6/13. We're acutally doing a 30 Day Disney Do-all Trip (Disneyland, DisneyCruise, DisneyWorld). So looking forward to it. This will ne my 2nd cruise, 1st for Disney. My niece, who will be 18 then, has never done a cruise. She is more nervous about the part of the vacation than anything.

Can't wait to get to know people who are planning to sail this cruise and hope to meet up on the boat.

(fairly new to DIS ... give me a little bit to figure it all out and then my profile won't be so blah)

Hi All! Have been waiting for a meet to start! Tried to start a thread, but for some reason it wouldn't post. I will be cruising with my DH, DS's 12 & 8, DD's 7. 10, & 14. On the 14th it will be my DD 7th birthday, what better present than a cruise? We booked on the Dream last year for this cruise, but am cruising on the 21st on the Dream, great price! My Dad and step-mother are going as well as my adult DD, her Dh and 2 kids.

Hi Everyone!

Well, we are back from our Carnival cruise, and I think it's safe to say that we won't be doing that again anytime soon. It wasn't really anything that was Carnival's fault (well, there were a few things that were Carnival's fault), but mostly, we think that things that we would not have noticed in the past or would not have bothered us in the past, we noticed and they bothered us now that we have kids.
And truly, while I was looking forward to this vacation, I was not as excited about this cruise because I knew it wasn't Disney. When we pulled up to the port, the Disney Fantasy was "parked" in front of the Carnival Ecstasy that we were on, and the kids started jumping up and down for the Mickey Mouse boat. It was a little difficult to say that no, that was not our ship. Then, when we were in Nassau, we were parked next to the Disney Dream, and both kids started crying because we were not getting back on that ship. DH and I were like, "Ok, ok! We get it! Mommy and Daddy made a mistake. It won't happen again."
Anyway, now we can just look forward to the Disney Fantasy. On this cruise next year, it will be myself, DH, DS who will be 5 yrs old, and DD who will be 3.5 yrs old. Looking forward to getting to know everyone better!

The FE list is slowly growing, mamiof2 suggeted getting everyones favourite disney character which i think is a good idea. Children will probably change their minds between now and september so I will ask closer to the time but just something to think about.
