Hi DukeBombay -Welcome aboard!

We did the 10 night med last year and had a fantastic time. We did book our excursions through Disney and actually waited until we boarded to do so and I'm glad we did. As a family we don't normally do early mornings whilst on holiday but when we talked to the cast member about various trips - quite a few came back very, very close to the all aboard time. She did say the ship will of course wait for us if we were delayed for any reason as it was a DCL excursion but I would've worried too much, so decided to go for the earlier options, which was probably better anyway with the heat etc. We too have a dd who will be 14 when we sail next summer - she had a fantastic time with Helenreed's dd who is also on this sailing too. Your girls will have amazing time on this trip

How did you enjoy the Mexican Riveria cruise? We did it last year on the Wonder and had a great time.
MR cruise was awesome. I still can't get over how nice Cabo was. Images of Land's End and the Arch are still stuck in my head. Another thing that was great was seeing all the whales from the ship. It saved on paying for an excursion. I am glad that we "snuck" it in because it looks like DCL is ending it after this year.

Welcome!

A, 16 months, it was seventeen, umm, a, umm, another month slipped by????

On the one hand that is very good, on the other, the planning/saving to pay for it hand, oh boy.

This should be a very fun trip. I can't wait to spend 12 days cruising!

I just heard from the family that was our dining room mates on our very first cruise (ironically in the Med.). They are on their way to the Fantasy inaugural this weekend. They think that they may book this itinerary OB. That would be neat.

Welcome aboard. This thread is kind of quiet at the moment but I am sure it will liven up as we get closer. I know that I am kind of focused on this summers vacation at the moment but once that is over will be here a lot more often!

They are back and loved the Fantasy. It is amazing how many freebies they came back. They also came back with a new reservation. Unfortunately it is for the sailing before this one. They like Greece more than Venice.

Welcome SCFamily.

I'm glad your friends had a good time on the Fantasy. Sorry that they won't be joining us.

I just finished a blog by somebody on the Fantasy and I was amazed at all of the gifts they recieved for being on the first official cruise.

Welcome SCFamily4, I'll add you to the roll call.

We just got back from WDW. Stayed at SSR and had a great time. DD11 had me out at the Magic Kingdom until 2:30 a.m. one night and 1:30 a.m. on another. DW and DS were smarter than me and went to the room to go to sleep.

I love the new oriental spicy chicken waffle at Sleepy Hollow. Yeah, food is a hobby. Now I just wish they had Dole Whips on the ship.

This thread is quiet especially compared to the sailing before us. We'll get there.

Thanks for the food tip. We'll be in WDW this summer and have to check it out.

Welcome honeybear and congratulations on your new booking.

Garak, they also serve a Nutella and fresh fruit waffle. Didn't get to try that, but there will always be another trip.

Did I ever mention, I really like your moniker? Yes, Star Trek fan here. Did prefer nextgen, and can't ever give up on the original Kirk; however, always hungry for more of any of it. There are favorites and not so favorites, but NEVER disliked any of it.

Anyway, sidetracked as always. Welcome to you honeybear66.

I was reading an article on another web about possibley pushing for cruises in the Netherlands and the Fjords. I'm up for it. Okay, I gotta have something to look forward to beyond what I am looking forward to.

I met with somebody yesterday who was asking me questions about Disney cruises as she was trying to talk her DH into one. He is afraid of being inundated with kids. I pointed out the adults only areas, and the shows, and the kids clubs. I mentioned how I seemed to have traded my DD for a beeper on several occassions. Maybe I need counseling: why am I addicted to a creature with round ears and many of his companions? . . . yeah, that will make for some real interesting association testing.

Not only a Trek fan, but it turns out that DS9 is my favorite tv show of all time. I know it is a controversial choice but I recommend re-watching it from beginning to end. It is masterful!

Hi all! Is it me, or have prices come down since the schedule was first released? We booked a placeholder cruise on our 10 day Med this past summer in the hopes they'd do another one in '13, but the Hubs said "No way" when we saw the prices earlier this year. (I haven't yet moved the 4 day December cruise from Galveston, LOL)

Now, they don't look so bad (in fact, they are cheaper than the 8 day River Cruise we have booked for July, and that doesn't include the DLP trip after). We'll be back in the US in 2014, so this will be our only chance for another Med, I think...

Hoping I will be posting soon that I am joining you!
