August 11, 2013 4 day Bahama Cruise on the Dream

I have not seen anyone post for our cruise yet so I thought I would get one started. I just recently learned about Fish Extenders and would love to participate. I am also excited about meeting our fellow cruisers before cruising.

I will be traveling with my family of 4; me (Denise), DH David, DD Heather (14), and DS Logan (10, turning 11 on ship). We can't wait until our cruise. We will be visiting WDW after our cruise for a couple of days. We are excited about the new Fantasyland!! This is our 3rd DCL cruise. The last 2 were aboard the Magic.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone!!
Denise

Count Us In

We will be on this cruise (our first), also celebrating a birthday (daughter's 16th)! We would love to be part of the fish extender gift exchange!

Thinking about booking for this Cruise

Is there going to be an FE group on this cruise does anyone know? Possibly thinking about booking this cruise, but want to be sure there will be FE first. The kids love FE, so it's a must.

I was hoping that someone would start one. This is my 3rd Disney cruise and I had not heard of Fish Extenders gift exchange until now. I don't know what is involved so hoping a veteran FE will take the reins to get one started. I really want to participate as well!

If you are nervous about being seasick, talk to your dr. about the transderm patches. They last 3 days. I found the 1st day is the hardest. I guess I found my sea legs after that. After my first cruise, I started wearing the patches so I didn't miss a minute of the fun.

Hope this helps you!! I look forward to meeting you on the cruise!! I can't wait!!

FE on Dream 8/11 Cruise

As I mentioned in my previous post, this is our first cruise but we are really interested in participating in an FE. I am surprised that there isn't more interest in our cruise. It's not really that far off. I would rather a veteran do it, but if nobody else is willing, I would do my best to organize it (with the help of a friend that is a veteran cruiser).

Would the patch or just taking bonine be better? I'm not really prone to motion sickness (except when I try to read in the car) but want to be prepared! I'm a little more worried about the kids...not sure if there is anything other than bonine to give them?

Anyway - I forgot to tell about us! We will be a group of 4 from N.H. - myself (37), my husband (41), daughter (12) and son (7).

For our 1st cruise as a family, I was worried that the kids would have a problem also but they were fine. At the time of that cruise, Sept. 2008, my daughter was 9, now 13 (14 on cruise) and son was 6, now 10 (turning 11 on cruise). Their pediatrician said the patch was ok for them also. As I wasn't sure if they would get sick, I asked for a prescription for them just in case. They were fine and didn't need anything. I wore a patch as the first cruise I took I was sick on the first night and fine after that. I have worn a patch ever since.

See you on the cruise!!

We're on this trip too! It's me, DH, DD(14), Ds(9), DD(6), DS(4). We are from NY. This is our third time sailing with DCL. We sailed on the wonder in 2005 & 2006 with the same itinerary as this sailing. We have tact on some WDW time prior and after the cruise. I don't know who is more excited for this trip me or the kids.

We are doing 5 nights at Disney World before the cruise also...I just couldn't be so close without stopping in! It's going to be hard to pack everything we want to do with only 5 nights - but we'll have the cruise to look forward to!
