I just LOVED that horn battle...so much so that I "borrowed" it and posted it on facebook. If that isn't OK, let me know and I'll take it off.

I would be crying...or tearing up..or maybe it's just something in my eye...too!
We are trying early dinner this time around too. I really liked late dinner and the early show, so we'll see how this one goes for me. I am only do it because other family members prefer the early seating.
I guess I don't care as along as I am on a Disney ship! I am hoping for some great deal on the Magic or Wonder in the future so I can check them out too. O love the Dream, and I'm sure I would be happy on the classics too.

I became a balcony snob last cruise when I got a taste of it. But I have had ocean view and inside on another cruiseline...and honestly I could do either of those again. Balconies are fabulous, but the ships itself is what is great and I wasn't in the room a lot anyways.
I can't wait to hear more.

So loving the horn battle, in all of its epicness.

Please, what kind of camera do you have? All of my sail away videos suffer from too much wind noise. Does you camera automatically adjust for that?

Kara - when we were on our Dream Cruise in March, the 22nd through 27, we got to see the Fantasy three times. It was sooooooo cool. On pirate night we got to watch the fireworks from the Dream and then the Fantasy did their's. Then we sailed by the Fantasy while it was docked at CC, including the horn battle - Dream won by the way (lol), and then they passed by us that night on their way back to PC, with more horns going back and forth. In fact, my new picture is me on the Dream with the Fantasy in the background! This was before their Maiden Voyage. It was soooo cool! We never knew when we booked this cruise that we would have such good fortune. It really was a once in a lifetime experience. Sorry, just had to share!

I cannot wait for the Sail Away Party and countdown. I'm going to be a bawling mess!
The sailaway party is THE BEST!!!! It just sets the tone for the rest of the cruise! And someone gave us a cd in our FE on this cruise that has ALL the music from sailaway and pirate party!!! So I used it in my movie (which I just finished btw, and will post on youtube soon......)......

We have only been on a 3 night Dream cruise but we are now determined to cruise as much as possible too. I would like to book cheaper staterooms but DH is still stuck on having a balcony. We are going to be on the Freedom of the Seas in Sept. and it cost $800 more for a balcony over a window. I told him I am going to time each time he sits on the balcony so I can see how much an hour of balcony time is costing us.

I am glad to see that Ally enjoys DCL. Our DD is 7, but I would like to get on the Fantasy Oct of 2014 when she will be turning 10. Sometimes I worry she'll be too cool for DCL especially after the Flowrider and skating rink on RCL.

That is so funny! I'm dying to know how much that balcony costs per hour!!!! I know for us at $800 for 7 days that is $115/day, right? So I'm guessing it would cost us about $115/hour because I can't imagine us out there more than an hour total each day, maybe 15 minutes when we wake up, 30 minutes while waiting for others to get ready, and 15 minutes before bed.... yup, that's a pretty pricey balcony!

Post away!!!! No matter what, the Magic will ALWAYS win EVERY horn battle because she has a REAL HORN!!!!! No digital fake "horn" for her!

You hit the proverbial nail on the head. It's the ship, not the cabin that makes the cruise......

I have a Nikon D5000 that I LOVE! Last year it was "okay" but I had just taken a class and really struggled with settings. Since then I've gotten tips from other message boards (Cruise Critic) from people who just have FABULOUS photos and they've helped me learn how to set it for different lighting etc.

The camcorder is a Sony, but not sure what model? It's about a year old - we bought it right before the cruise last year.

I firmly believe in learning how to use these cameras in order to truly love them. I am trying to get Jeff to take a camera class too. I almost minored in photography in college, but those were 35mm film cameras. The concept is all still the same, but I got away from it for so long that I forgot all about f-stop, aperture, shutter speed, etc. It's coming back to me now though and I'm having fun with the camera!

That is so cool! I remember seeing pics of the Dream and Fantasy. It is one thing to see a Carnival ship in port, or pass a RCI ship on the open sea. But to see another DCL ship is really mesmerizing!!!!

I'm so glad you got to see that! Now we will BOTH be on that Fantasy on NYE!!!!

Almost forgot a couple of really cool shots that Kristi got for me from sailaway!!!!

Kristi, I don't care what Steve says, I think you are A-OK!!!!

This is MY Magic! As in, I WAS ON THIS SHIP, IN THIS PHOTO, ME, MYSELF, AND I (and Jeff and Ally, too.....). This is the Magic sailing on March 30, 2012.... get it?



And that would be ME!!!! Yeah, all three of Me!!! and Jeff and Ally, too....

I'm wearing the blurry red shirt, Jeff is behind me in a blurry navy shirt, and Ally is two people to my right in a blurry white shirt (you can make out Ally's lanyard hanging on her chest) and we are all waving, hands high in the sky.....



And there we go, all three of ME, plus Jeff and Ally and about 2600 of my closest friends, as we sail past the Fantasy!!!



So thankful to Kristi for snagging these photos for me!!! I just added them to my movie at the last minute and I swear they made the whole thing so much better!!!!

I'm sure you never run when it's inappropriate - I know you are never a rule breaker!

Dang Flabbit! The bag of water was there, but still no sign of my luggage or Ally's..... And we're the pretty ones!!! We need our "stuff" for fixin up!

Of course Jeff said the right thing - "You're both beautiful already - you don't need your stuff!"

So off we BRISKLY WALKED to Deck 10 to scope out our spot for Sail Away. I wanted to be near starboard forward area (that's the right front for you land lubbers) so we would be visible on the Port Canaveral webcam for sailaway. I had already posted our spot on Facebook and by golly I was gonna be there to wave to all those poor saps back home!!! Especially those who were watching from work (Drea......)

Oh yes, you Briskley Walked to Deck 10 - jumping over tables and knocking babies and old ladies down so you could get your spot front of the rail - on the way there you swooped in and grabbed a DOTD off a tray being carried around by the CMs.

I found a nice spot by the rail, right behind a little "table" so I could rest my DOTD.... Priorities, my friends..... priorities.

See? do I know you or what?



Ally and Tori were wedged in right by the rail and we all had our streamers to wave......



And then.

It

Was

Time!

Tisa came out to introduce us to some very important folks.... "Moms and Dads, these are your new best friends for the week.... The youth activities team!!!!!"



Oh yeah, we cheered.... we sang... we danced...



Some obviously better than others....

We then got to meet our Cruise Director.... he was no Peter Popper (aka Peter Hoffer)......

This time we got....



Darren McBlarneystone (aka Darren McBarney).

Something about those microphones at sea... they distort names something AWFUL!!!! Or maybe it was those Drinks of the Day!!!!

Loved loved LOVED Darren McBlarneystone!!!!

Especially when he introduced his friends!!!

McBlarneystone instroduces the Big Cheese! - VIDEO - click to play!

Yes, that was JEff filming me crying..... hey it's what I do - don't judge me!!!

What is it about that stupid mouse???? He makes me so stupid and happy and weepy and happy and, oh heck, just keep reading....

Shake it Pluto!!!







We sang some more.... we danced some more.... we had another DOTD.... until it was THAT time...

Sail Away Countdown - VIDEO - click to play!





As soon as we were finished shaking what our mamas gave us.... (no offense, but Donald's mama gave him a LOT!), we moved into position to be webcam stars!

And here we goooooooo!



Right on top of the blue roof of Fishlips is the webcam. We waved like crazy - seems the more active you are, the closer they will zoom in on you. So Ally was gonna make SURE we were on camera!

There were a lot more people up on deck this time than there were last year.

And it's all because of this....



Ole McBlarneystone told us all about the "firsts" this trip - first time two Disney ships in Port Canaveral together. First time two Disney ships in ANY port together...... And he warned us of the "epic horn battle" that would soon begin.....



So....

Who's ready for the horn battle?????

EPIC Horn Battle - VIDEO - click to play!

One thing I did learn.... even though the Dream and Fantasy have several different tunes their "horn" plays, they don't have real horns. The Magic and Wonder have REAL horns you can see from the Quiet Cove Pool if you look up at the base of the stack. The Dream and Fantasy have digital "horns."

So there. We win!

Although it is kinda sad listening to the Magic play the same tune over.. and over... and over.... She's like the little runt who just won't give up!!!!!

The Fantasy can play all those different tunes, but by golly the Magic will When You Wish Upon a Star until the cows come home!!! Or the fishing boats in this case.... Or at least until someone throws themselves overboard....

In any case (we still won!), the crew of the FAntasy was all up on deck, too, I guess to be a part of history!









There were stateroom attendants on the balconies, maintenance crew all gathered below on that little "gangplank" plus tons of crew up on deck!

Very cool to be a part of this.....

And yes. I cried. Don't judge.

As soon as we past the Fantasy, it was time to BRISKLY WALK back to steerage so we could get ready for dinner.

Last cruise we had late dinner seating, this time we decided to try early dinner seating at 545pm.

There were good and bad points to each. The problem for us, with late seating, was that we were always so full to really go "out" after dinner and usually ended up in bed by 10pm! We still ended up getting ready in time for early dinner because we'd go to the 615 shows and then have photos taken between the show and dinner. So having early dinner didn't really force us to get ready any earlier..... However, when in port, we did miss our early dinner once because we just didn't want to cut short our time in port to get on the ship that early......

Basically, I think we'd choose late dinner seating (in fact that IS what we have chosen for our next cruise) but if we were assigned the early seating, I would not make a big deal out of trying to change it. For us there just wasn't THAT much of a difference in how we planned our day.....

When we arrived back in steerage, after playing hopscotch with the rats, we... what? OK, so maybe I remember THAT part of steerage from Titanic....

And again, for all those who have posted that the Magic is "showing her age" and "looking old" and other such nonsense? That is the FURTHEST from the truth!!!! She is a BEAUTIFUL ship in great condition!!!! Even when we were side by side with the Fantasy, you would never have guessed the Magic was 14 years old, compared with that brand new ship.

Well, except for the rats....

Up next.... FIRST NIGHT'S DINNER!!!!!


I saw you guys! Someone posted a pic of the ship and I thought that was you! Love the horn battle!

Oh, and it's not a rat - it's a MOUSE!

Glad to hear the Magic is still beautifully kept up - and that all is good in steerage!

YAH, I love McSpankly trip reports.

May I just say "looking good Mrs. McSpankly", your formal night photo shows just how lucky a man your husband is.

How he could even consider looking twice at a certain mouse, who shall remain nameless, on the last cruise is beyond me.

Yes, you DO know me well!!!! Still not sure it was a mouse in steerage, he usually hangs out in the lobby where the rich folk go..... Oh wait, they unlocked the gates so we could head up there ocassionally too!

Have a great time on your Dream cruise with the other Dismoms! Can't wait to hear all about it in a future trip report.
