Hi!

Hi everyone. My name is Sarah and my family is so very excited to be cruising next summer. We experienced the magic of our first Disney cruise on the Fantasy this past summer and had an amazing time. I am cruising with my three kids and my in-laws. It is a bit bittersweet because my husband and I always wanted to do a Mediterranean cruise. Next summer will be the 5th anniversary of his death and would have been our 15th wedding anniversary, so this trip is in his memory.

My disname is sthissell. We will be in two rooms...
Sarah (me), Becca (dd 12), Nick (ds 7), Toria (dd 5), Merrilee (MIL) and Rick (FIL). We live in NH (although some of my friends think we live in Disneyworld). We'll be second seating, staterooms 6110 and 6108 and would love to do all of the exchanges.

I can't wait to meet all of you!

Yes, I looked as well. Only the July 25 with Venice shows up. Knew this would be popular, but surprised it is sold out so early on.

Disney Excursions

I know the DCL excursions aren't posted yet...and we won't see them for a few more months.

But while lurking on another meet site I found this link which outlines some of the excursions (and prices) from the 2011 cruises.

http://www.worldofmouse.com/2011-med-excursions.html

I thought that those overplanners (like me) might like a little something to go on before DCL releases their 2013 excursions.

Whew! This thread is really hopping!

We're still recovering from the DIS London/Paris trip, but are thrilled to be going back to Europe next year. We have a bunch of DVC points saved up to take care of the cruise.

We were on the very first DCL Med cruise back in 2007 and have been on many others, so happy to help with any questions people have. And now we have some Disneyland Paris experience to share, too, since it looks like some folks will be heading there.

Here's our information:

Jen (NejTheLion)
Debbi (TheFairyGodmother) - mother
Barry (BarTheBear) - father

Springfield, VA
Second seating
Stateroom 8028

With reference to your room reservations at the Renaissance Barcelona Airport Hotel we would like to inform you that as of November 1st, 2012 this hotel will no longer operate under the Renaissance name and is no longer part of Marriott International. It goes without saying that your current reservations will of course continue to exist at this hotel rebranded as Barcelona Airport Hotel

What are others going to do that were booked here? Stay with your ressies or find something else?

It is such a good price....but who knows if they are going to be with breakfast and transfers to the port???!?! I haven't called or responsed to them to know any of these questions.

Cyndi
On the London/Paris trip, we were supposedly staying at the Renaissance Chancery Court. By the time our trip came around, ownership had transferred away from Marriott. Same experience in Paris - the Hilton Arc de Triomphe was no longer a Hilton.

We had excellent experiences at both hotels and had no concern with them no longer being brands we knew. So, while that doesn't necessarily speak to this hotel, all I can say is it shouldn't immediately cause concern.

And it may be that the cruise is sold out. We booked on opening day for Platinum Castaway Club. I'm just very slow in getting around to posting things

Yes, I think it is. Someone posted on Facebook that it was sold out. We also did the Med in 2007. Can't wait to go back! We booked opening day for Gold Castaway. Platinum someday........

temperatures in the Med

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted... been busy here!! But, we have our flights all booked (we are flying British Airways with layovers in London) , and have our hotel booked for Barcelona (pre-cruise) , and are working on our plans for the time in Europe we'll be spending pre-cruise and post-cruise , so it's pretty exciting!!

My parents will be coming with us on the cruise, and they just started to have second thoughts about going on the cruise only because of the temperatures in the Med in July. They think it's going to be over 100 degrees F the entire time, but I keep telling them I don't think it'll be THAT hot. I mean, I know it's going to be hot, but I don't think it'll be over 100 the entire time. I am thinking it'll be in the 90's and maybe the high 80's, or am I completely wrong? Does anyone know from experience what to expect for temperatures in July? Is it just unbearable, or is it not too bad? Also, does anyone know if it's a dry heat or is it really humid?

My DH, kids and I love heat, so we aren't worried a bit about how hot it could be, and we've traveled to very hot places before, so we know how to handle the heat(both dry heat and humid heat). But, my parents really get miserable if it's high 90's and for sure into the 100's.

I am expecting Greece will be HOT and so will Malta. And, I know the rest of the ports will be hot, but I'm guessing the other ports should be a bit cooler than Greece and Malta???

Is there anyone here who has cruised the Med in July and can give insight on what the typical temperatures might be during the time of our cruise?

We are getting SO excited!!!!

We cruised Med in 07. The week before, temps were close or over 100's. When we went, the temps had cooled a lot and a couple of ports, I had to wear a light jacket. It was weird weather. Plan on hot, but prepared in case it's not with a light rain jacket.

Same for us. I expected it to be extremely warm, but found it not to be as warm as it is here on Long Island during the dog days of summer. The only time I remember being really hot was in Pompeii, but other than that, not too hot at all. If they find it is too warm that day, they can just stay on the ship and enjoy all the Magic has to offer. If they book excursions through Disney, all of the buses, etc. have airconditioning and bottled water. Disney is very mindful of keeping their guest happy on excursions. May cost a little more, but very well worth it.
