I like that idea. I did a map of the FE rooms in the past. If you like another just let me know.

We love being on the ship for our birthdays.

When I asked my daughter a couple of years ago what she wanted for her 18th birthday, she said "I want to eat dinner in Palo's." So we booked the Disney Wonder and on her actual birthday, April 16th, we had a 6 p.m. reservation in Palo's and they treated her like a queen! And we had upgrade at the port to a concierge level room, and our stateroom hostess and concierge cast member decorated the whole room and when we returned Jamie was so surprised. Then, earlier that day, she was able to have her first spa appointment and use the rainforest room and our concierge had chocolate covered strawberries delivered to her in the rainforest room.

Yep, being on the ship for birthdays is the best.

I will be on the Disney Wonder for my birthday May 11th while we are on the Hawaii cruise. We have brunched booked in Palo's that day!

It's going to be great seeing you again!! Can't wait!

Does anyone know if a Gold who is linked to a Silver can book excursions for them?? (hope that makes sense?) If so, would we all have to be going on the same tour? Thanks.

I think that can only be done if the gold and silver are in the same stateroom - not if they are in linked staterooms. I'm not even sure that can be done with Palo anymore.

It's weird now. For our 3/31 Fantasy, we're linked with silver friends (daughter and I are platinum, husband and son gold, baby silver). We could book them for Remy, with us, but not Palo or excursions.

Happy Saturday!

While we were at Costco last night, I found Rick Steves' Mediterranean Cruise Ports of Call book. I think the only port that wasn't included was Malta! Check it out if you're interested in that sort of thing. You can find it at the major online bookstores, too.

Thanks for the great info. DH told me that we can't buy it until 2013 to have the most current book. Sue
