Smile Vow Renewal

My hubby and I are renewing our vows for our 20th anniversary on this cruise. We are sailing with a great group of friends we meet on a PC cruise and love cruising with, and our children who have never been on DCL.

CONGRATS! I have been saying I wanted to do our renewal on DCL for our 20th. You'll have to let me know how it goes. Where are you doing the renewal?

Welcome Skelster and mom2maci! I've added you to the roll call. We haven't finalized FEs yet, so you got here in plenty of time.

mmieszczak - On my last DCL cruise, I made the single pouch FE that is no sew. It's made with a drawstring bag, iron tape and Disney ribbon. I am not crafty at all, and it was really easy. Everything can be purchased on ebay, and I paid less than $10.00 for the parts. I think it's in the links that skelster posted. If it's not and you are interested, I can send you a photo of mine.

Has anyone ever cruised with a child that was hesitant to be left alone in the kids' club? My DD(5) is fine being left at school, gymnastics, etc. But she usually has to be warmed up to the area and people there. We are planning on spending some time there with her during the open hours on the first day. But if anyone has tips about how they got their kids to stay...especially during dinner..I'm all ears. Thanks.

Jeni

Our Daughter was always very outgoing at school and gymnastics, then she was soooo worried about going to the kids club when she was 6, and literally had herself worried sick! Once on board, you get to tour the clubs (open house format) and she will see just how fun they are and have her meet a councler right away and then she will be fine. The counclers are amazing at warming them up to them and new friends! I had to argue with my daughter on night 2, to leave the club to come to dinner as a family! My daughter now 17, basically goes to the teen club on the 1st night to meet people and then we dont see her much except for our "Family" dinner rule And of course to check in with us (she still doesnt get free run of the ship!) Just my opinion.

Thanks Niki! I'm really hoping that's the reaction she has too. You give me hope!

This will be the second time aboard the Disney Dream for myself and my kiddos.

I will be on the September 8th, 4 day Bahamian cruise with 3 of my 4 kids. My oldest can't miss anymore school.

I will have a 14, 12 and 10 year old with me. Looking to join a fish extender group.

Thanks!!
