I am beyond excited to have just booked this cruise! I teach 6th grade and in NY these are many of the places we study in Social Studies! AND...it's July so I can go on a 12 night cruise!!!!
  • Rebecca (me)
  • DS (will be almost 15 at time of sailing)
  • From Upstate NY
  • Stateroom is on Deck 5 (I don't have the room # in front of me)
  • We have 2nd dining.
  • Yes, FE--I would be happy to organize.
  • This will be our 7th, maybe 8th cruise (3 Wonder, 2 Dream, 1 Magic--March 2012, and thinking about Alaska--August 2012)

I was able to easily book this afternoon via the website. I transferred an onboard booking so we got 10% off and our $275 OBC. I hope to transfer the ressie to Dreams for an additional OBC ($200 I think). Our rates weren't much if any higher than those that called yesterday. We are Gold CC members but I couldn't sit on the phone as I was at school.

We will be looking to add the Adventures By Disney add-on if it is something worthwhile and doesn't break the bank! Now to figure a way to get a decent price on flights!

ughhh. Please help me rationalize this

I have 2 ressies. 1 is booked and 1 is on hold for 3 days.

We are going on our 2nd Magic cruise this summer out of NY (live 45m away from NY port). Costing my family of 5 (in 2 9A cabins) 9K. My parents also have a cabin booked for this.

Can't afford to do this summer expensive cruise and the following summer in the Med with the whole family. Airfare for 5 to Europe is EXPENSIVE.

Hubby and I decided to do the Med alone to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I booked the 7 day for $3034 for 11B.

I really really really want to do this 12 night instead. I have a hold on it $5451 for 11B.

My dd will be off to college in 2014 and we won't be able to take a trip like this for a long time once she is in college. Hubby and I have only been away for 2 nights alone since our Honeymoon as we take the kids everywhere (we have 4).

We went on a Norwegian cruise for Thanksgiving and it was horrible. I will only sail Disney.

I am trying to justify the extra $2417 for the 12 nighter. I wil be leaving the kids home with MIL coming here. My daughter will be 17, another daughter 8 and my son 15 at time of cruise.

I want to be with you all

TheMouseGeeks are going to the Med!

Me~ Jennifer
DH~ Gottfried
DD ~ 13 (at time of cruise. Oh my- the teen club!)

We are just north of Atlanta.

This will be #7 on DCL- first time in the Med.

We do have a 7-night MR in April to look forward to right now as well, which I hope will help make the countdown to July 13, 2013 bearable

Look forward to getting planning a great trip with all of you!

Jennifer

Hello!!

We are SO excited about this Med cruise... we were not only hoping Disney would do a Med cruise for 2013, but that they would include Greece as part of their itinerary, so we got everything we wished for (just wish the prices weren't so high, but that's ok.... we have lots of time to save up our pennies! ).

We are from Seattle, WA
Me: Kathy
DH: Eric
DS: Tyler (age 12 at time of cruise)
DS: Ryan (age 10 at time of cruise)

Our cabin is 7062.

Right now, we are main dining. We are going to wait to see what shore excursions we plan to see if we should move to late dining, but for now, we are early.

Not sure if we'll do the FE group at this point. I'm going to wait until it gets closer. We have always done the FE exchange on our other cruises, but we might be tagging on a couple weeks in Europe before or after the cruise, so if we do that, I am not sure we'll have room for FE gifts.

My parents will also be on this cruise... their cabin is a couple doors down from us. My parents live here in Seattle, too, but they won't be writing into these boards.

Looking forward to writing in... just wish the cruise was THIS summer and not a whole 1.5 years away! But, leaves lots of time for planning!

Take care!

Hello! I'm Nicole from Linwood, NJ (the infamous Jersey Shore, not as glamourous as it sounds) and so excited for this cruise (it will be my 7th DCL cruise). I am excited because my 27th birthday will be on July 15 of this cruise- I've always wanted to celebrate my birthday onboard a Disney cruise, and was keeping my fingers crossed that the itinerary I wanted with the rumored Greece/Turkey would fall over my birthday, and I cant believe it actually did!! I feel like its meant to be. As of now I am travelling by myself but booked for 2 adults in case a friend or relative later decides to join me. I prefer companionship and obviously splitting the cost since the single supplement is so frustrating, but when I can't find someone to join me I never let that stop me from going alone (I just recently went to Australia and New Zealand for 3 weeks in October alone, but part of a tour group that I met 38 wonderful friends out of, and know I'll make friends with our wonderful group on this cruise!).

I'm in room 2009, second seating, and want to partake in the FE. Later on I would love if we could find volunteers to design logos for magnets/tshirts, and lanyards and bracelets. We did that on my Panama Cruise last January and it was so fun to see our huge group wearing the same recognizable items!

I'm thinking of doing Disneyland Paris after the cruise for a few days, depending on the cost of airfare from Barcelona to Paris. I've been to Paris twice and other Europe twice and kick myself that I didnt make time to go to DLP before, so I hope I can swing it this trip. All depends on the international airfare cost and my job situation next year, we'll see. But either way I'm so looking forward to this cruise, I've been to Florence/Pisa/Rome before (studied abroad in Italy) and Nice/Monaco (love it there!!), but never been to Spain, Turkey, Greece, or Malta so i am so ready for amazing new adventures!
