Thumbs up Count us in!!!!

I like to plan ahead....still more than a year away, but doesn't this make the PERFECT graduation gift?!?!

Surprising DD (next May) and allowing her to bring a +1 on the adventure!....Shhh! It's a surprise...we'll see how long I can keep my mouth sealed on this one!

Snagged a secret verandah and an inside across the hall- deck 7 right by the secret aft deck...I just LOVE Disney secrets!

That website is fab, great job

Looking forward to being able to book flights now, roll on June!

So does anyone know of any DCL or Med Cruise related books? Although I'm trying so very hard to resist my brains telling me I need to plan

I'm in the UK by the way but the power of amazon will help me get my hands on anything x

I have been looking too, but I am waiting until a 2013 book comes out. I have seen "the Passporter" on amazon and that looks okay. Also, Rick Steves looks good, but I like the passporter because it has planning pages to write in.

My attempt at an F E

Okay, so this may be very premature but my DH took a trip to the fabric shop yesterday and I was looking through the box of offcuts and managed to bad myself some free material.
I happened to visit my mother and know that she has a sewing machine (but she doesn't sew), so I asked to have it.

I was so excited with my freebies that I got to work as soon as I got home. My kids told me what they would like and I went to work. I have only ever used a machine maybe twice for basic cushion covers, and that is as far as my sewing skills go.
It did not start well as I couldn't get the setting right and it kept jamming (or what the term is). After attempt 12 my DH stepped in with a calmer head and YAY, he got the tension right (even though I read the manual and told him). He is was my super hero.

I did all the cutting and measuring last night and today started to build my FE. I even had a go at stitching our family name on a mickey (not the best stitching at all, but I am not a machinist).

Not completed yet as I want to put something on the pockets, just not sure what as of yet.





Bit blurry, but I took them on my phone.

My favorite book so far is the Rick Steves Mediterranean Cruise Ports book. It's great if you plan to do any ports on your own. There are so many great tips! I'm sure I'll read more but this was a great book to start with.

Cute cute cute!! You did a great job on these. I'm not crafty at all. My daughter owns a sewing machine but I haven't talked myself into making our own FE. I might take the easy way out and order one on ebay!

Just off the Magic!

Hi Everyone, I haven't posted in a few weeks or so. We just got off the Magic last Friday 4/6 doing the Western Caribbean. We had several "horn wars" with the Fantasy as she was on her maiden voyage along side of us at several ports. It was quite a site - all the camera flashes from the people on the Fantasy, the people on the beaches, and even on the nearby Royal Caribbean and Costa ships made us feel like rock stars! The Magic still has her Magic!

We had a spectacular room host and a great dining team. I told them all they better still be on the Magic when it goes to the Med in 2013 and we'd seem them all then!

Cindy

Glad to hear that you had a great cruise! Wouldn't that be fun if you had the same team on the Med cruise?
