Congrats! Sounds like a lot of fun.

I am hoping there is a Panama Canal Cruise sometime in my future! Though DW wants to do one of the sailings oit of the Port of Miami since they will go to Key West again.

Awww, you remembered. Yes, that's why I've been quiet lately...once I heard the rumors about the Mediterranean I didn't want to get too attached to you all. We are very excited...we being me and the girls, I haven't told my DH yet. Italy has been a life long dream for both of us, so he should be ok with it, right?
I know you will all LOVE the Fantasy!

Well unfortunately, we're having to jump ship too. Our 2013 school calendar just came out and we're NOT off this week in February! So I moved our dates and we're cruising on the Fantasy for Spring Break, 2013 instead.

Have a fun time!

YIKES I hope our NY kids are off this week. We haven't recieved our 2013 calendar yet. I only booked because I was going by what our past years mid winter recess has been.

I would be stunned if NYC schools were closed for the week. The Teachers union would probably flip out. But u never know if Bloomberg wants to play games w them!

NYC schools always have off in Feb for mid-winter recess (well in my experience w/ dd's 11-24 yrs) and then again for spring break. My only concern is, WHEN in February will it be? As far I can remember it's alway's been presidents week and I'm HOPING this is still the case. I understand what you said though, it's very rare when they close the schools for anything else. Snow could be up to your knees and NYC doesn't want to close the schools, which is a shame.

I am a product of NYC schools and now have kids that go to public school in a district that borders NYC in Westchester. And I always remember having Presidents week off. Back in the 1970's it was pitched as some sort energy conservation week.

I actually check to see what's going on here a few times a day but I only post when something comes to mind. The cruise seems/is so far away
Hopefully we'll have this board jumping soon. Till then I'll be watching and sharing here

As long as the stars align we hope to be on this sailing... We have to make deposit by 2/3 the only hold back is the 2013 school calender we are hoping that it will be out in then next few weeks...

We were originally booked on Magic out of NYC this summer but couldn't justify the price in the end decided to go to WDW and stay on property instead..

Now we decided to stay off property this July and take the money saved and do this..

We have been dying to get back on a DCL since 07 when we were on the Magic...

First thing out of my wifes mouth was "can we do the Fish Extenders" and we have to have a Magical Porthole

So if it is a go it will be My wife and I and DS (9) DD (6)


I am crossing my fingers..

Are you wondering what a Magical Porthole is? Or just questioning that you need to have one?

If you need to know what it is, it's a magic (ok, a TV screen) porthole for inside staterooms, so you can get a view outside, plus Disney characters will appear in the porthole too. So you'd need to book an inside stateroom to get one.

Hi everyone! I'm still checking in periodically. I've been so busy at work and at home lately!! I am looking forward to this cruise so much! It's been a while since we've done a 7 night cruise. I'm looking forward to spending quality time with my kids and party time with my friends! It will be the best of both worlds!!!

What are all of you looking forward to the most?

I'm thinking about signing up for the FE's. But if it gets too big I might have to back out... But we'll see.

Well...I'm at work so gotta run!
