Is anyone else flying in the night before the cruise? If so, have you looked into transportation options for getting from the hotel to the port?

If you do plan for the unexpected! South Florida has traffic especially Miami! Do plan ahead as much as possible! I live in South Florida and it is a disaster going from point A to point B due to construction!

The other risk is your flight being cancelled out of Chicago due to bad weather. Just have a plan for what you may do in that case and you should be fine.

Welcome to the cruise!

We are flying in from Chicago the day before. We fly into ft lauderdale. Haven't figured out where we are staying or how we are getting to the ship the next day. We are also staying two nights afterwards and haven't figured that out yet either. Husband travels for work and is a big Hilton guy so I know our hotels will be from that brand.

Cruising in December?

Hi. Our family is contemplating this sailing. I think it would be neat to sail at Christmas, but one concern I have would be the seas. Have any of y'all read about the Caribbean in December? (Very choppy water, high winds, etc?) While I am willing to do an inside cabin just to get on the boat...I'm wondering if any of you have sailed at the holidays before and what was it truly like. I'm familiar with most other times of the year, just not in December. I know there are stabilizers, etc...but also know they can only do so much. Also wondering because if the ocean breeze in Dec is too chilly...there's no point in me wondering about a verandah!
We just did this itinerary in June on the Fantasy-really want to go back-and hey, it's on the Wonder (a fav ship)!
Thanks!

Heads up for those of you planning ahead for Palo, costumes, etc. I talked to the concierge yesterday and was told there will be no Pirate Night dinner on this cruise because it is a Christmas sailing. They said there still might be a Pirate Party after dinner but that had not yet been confirmed.

Greetings from Colorado

Greetings Holiday Cruisers!

My 22 year old DS will join me on this cruise to celebrate his graduation from University of Central Florida. We did the December cruise on the Magic the week before Christmas last year but am really looking forward to spending Christmas Eve/Day on the ship.

Is someone going to start a Facebook page?

Look forward to chatting with everyone.

Pirate Night

I hope they still do something for Pirate night. My kids will be disappointed.
