You know it just dawned on me that I am not listening all that well if I am researching and planning for this one already.

Marlaymike, is DN niece or nephew?

The discussion about the day of the week we'll be in various ports led me to look it up so I can start getting things fixed in my brain about what day we'll be where. From our itinerary (and I will add this to the first post as well):


Thursday, June 27 Barcelona, Spain - 4:00 p.m.
Friday, June 28 Villefranche, France 8:45 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 29 La Spezia, Italy 7:45 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, June 30 Civitavecchia, Italy 7:15 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Monday, July 1 Naples, Italy 7:45 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, July 2 At Sea - -
Wednesday, July 3 Venice, Italy 1:00 p.m. -
Thursday, July 4 Venice, Italy - 5:00 p.m.
Friday, July 5 Dubrovnik, Croatia 1:15 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, July 6 At Sea - -
Sunday, July 7 Valetta, Malta 7:45 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Monday, July 8 At Sea - -
Tuesday, July 9 Barcelona, Spain 7:00 a.m. -


Re: travel insurance - we always just get it through the cruiseline. However, with our Greece one, we will have to insure it with someone like insuremytrip because of the cash portion of that trip - we will insure our DVC points through DVC.

I'm waiting for DCL to decide what they think we'll be able to do re: air with them or not - they did call me yesterday to tell me they still didn't know... I appreciated the follow-up. If we do air on our own, we'll also insure that. I'd like to do all my insurance at the same time but will probably piece-meal it. We don't normally insure just travel on our own - but we are making a big trip to the North Central states this summer and I actually did insure our flights. Not sure what made me decide to do that - maybe because we booked them pretty far in advance.
Hi!! Is niece.

We're in too

I am Peggy (pmm0724) and will be traveling with my DD (Kmitchel) and DGS 11.

We are Platinum and were on the 2007 Med, as well as 2 WBPC and are doing Hawaii in May as well as NY in Aug., so seems like we have cruised with a lot of you before.

Has anyone set up a Facebook group yet? We find it easier to track individual conversations there.

I skim down posts and forget to check DIS names so am not sure if I have seen you on the April-May Hawaii thread--do you post there ?

I find it easier to stay caught up if there is only one site. Seems like two groups with one on DIS and one on FB. Some assume everyone reads both so info is not all in one place. JMHO

I'm afraid to ask -what's a Cat T?
I haven't figured out the new categories yet. We just know what cabin we want - it used to be a Cat 6 but is now a Cat 5C.

It's the 1-bedroom suite, concierge. We stayed in one on the Wonder in '98. It's very, very nice! But definitely not 26k nice!!!

So what port is everybody most excited for?

Right now I am really excited for Dubrovnik, Villefranche and Malta, probably because those are the places I have never been before. Dubrovnik looks absolutely charming! I wish we had a full day there instead of the afternoon arrival.

Dubrovnik, Venice, and Malta are all new ports for us. We booked this one because Nathan has wanted to go to Venice since he was in the 5th grade. DH's boss says that of all the places he's traveled, Dubrovnik is his favorite. He is disappointed we won't have a lot of time there. I'm looking forward to going to Florence and also seeing more of the French Riviera. We went to Nice in 2007 because we needed it to be an easy day - this time we're excited about being able to venture a bit further... and since we're b2b'ing, we get a double-shot of Villefranche... which to this point is my favorite port I've been to.

DH keeps reminding me though that we have a great trip planned for this summer and to not let the cruises of next summer overshadow our trip to Yellowstone this summer. So to pacify him, I picked up a book at the library today about National Parks

Your trip this summer will be fabulous! My dad was in the Navy and every time we moved while I was growing up we would take two weeks and drive across the country and stop and explore the national parks. Absolutely beautiful and you will create great memories!

I'm hearing the same thing!!! We are heading on the Fantasy inaugural next month and heading on a big trip this summer. We are hitting Phoenix, grand canyon, Vegas, Disneyland, and Aulani. He keeps telling me to calm down.....

Malta is awesome!!!! I can't wait for Venice!!!!!!!!!!
