All getting very excited for this cruise... I am still trying very hard to finish the video from our cruise last May when we went onto the Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Disney Magic. Still feels like days ago, probably because we discuss it everyday... The shows, the meals, the activities, the characters, the weather, the port calls, the fireworks, exchanging gifts with the Fish Extenders, DISNEY MAGIC was just magical.... Can't wait to do it all again.... Check my signature and you can see the video's, think the cruise starts on Day 10... Very happy memories...

No teen club and not old enough for the adult areas. Hopefully, he'll be interested in the history and other cultural activities at the ports. He likes history, so this should be a good trip for him.
Actually, the adult areas are 18 and up. So he can go there if he wants. My DD is looking forward to eating in Palo and going to the adult only pool...mainly to get away from her younger sisters. She is young at heart though, so I know she will still want to do "teen" stuff. I think this cruise will be different from all the others, we will be doing a lot of "tours" and will be off the ship and going a lot more than usual, so I'm expecting the kids(even my "adult" one) to be exausted by the end of each day.

Looking forward to meeting you. Both cruises should be a lot of fun!!!

Okay So I'm finally committing. I'm Dismom's SIL. Me, my DH, and my DS (11 at the time of cruising) will be joing my SIL and her family along with my mom and Dad (as of now).

We will be in 6136 and we come from Newburyport, MA. This will be our 4th cruise and I cannot wait to get back on the boat. Now let's hope that I can afford the plane tickets... Andrea can't you do something about that.

YAY you finally made it over here! Now you just need to mosey on over to the Feb. 16th Fantasy thread and let them know you aren't going on that one. I will help pay for your plane tickets if you help pay for my second cabin.

We're growing in numbers now.

I emailed my TA this morning to see if I could possibly move to deck 2 as my boys asked to have the large single port hole. Hopefully I will not get seasick, but want to stay as low down as possible as I heard this helps.

I have to wait until next Tuesday to find out though, as my TA is out of the office until then. No rush I guess, 433 days 19 hours to go, or 10411 hours.

Hi all! So...either I have to much time on my hands or I'm too excited about this trip! I've created a website just for the June 1st 2013 Med cruise. I'm trying to put all of the info in one spot just to make it a little easier to find. I'm not done with it because we don't have all of the information seeing as the cruise is over a year away but I'll add things as I get them.

I took the information off of valbob's spreadsheet and have included this for a roll call. If you would like your name off of this site (or added if I've missed anyone) or need something corrected please PM me or click on Minnie at the bottom of the first page to send me a message.

I'm open to suggestions so please take a look and let me know if there is anything that you'd like me to include! I'll be working on the FE Exchange page soon so you can PM me or send me a message if you'd like to participate. I've never done one so if you know what I should include on there please let me know.

Hi Tracey, fab site. I have just book marked it.

I will probably participate in the FE, I actually picked up something little today for the kids. lol

I think it would be nice to pin somewhere how many boys and how many girls are on the cruise. Just thinking, because I am noticing lots of girls about the same age and limited boys. This is purely for my own selfish reasoning as to who my boys may get to know and also, for FE count. Making it easier to know what sort of item and age range to buy for (plenty of time I know). lol

I started looking at some items for the FE too. I'm trying to find some things that aren't really big so I can fit them in my carr on!

Hopefully I'll have a little time soon and I can put together something to see how many kiddos we have on our cruise! I hope we do a DISmeet so we can get the kids together to meet each other. It'll be nice for them to have some friends right away!

Tracerr00, thanks for the website! DH can't wait to book the air. We're hoping to use his miles from all of his work travels!

Cool website! My family will be participating in the FE....can't wait.
My DD(12) brought home some school work the other day, they are studying ancient Rome and they read a book about Pompei. I was so excited to see that!

My 8 year old son will be doing "Gladiators" next term and my 6 year old read a book about chariots which piqued my 8 year old interest. He read it also (only a story book) but they were really interested and even want to watch "Ben Hur". So, over the Easter holidays I guess we will watch that.

Seems like we are all getting a little more excited now.
