Welcome all the newcomers recently! If this will be your first Disney Cruise, it may not be your last. We do have a facebook page set up, so if you'd like to join, you'll find the link a few pages back. It looks like we will have a number of kids on this cruise. My kids will have a blast!

It is set to closed (just so the posts aren't visible to everyone cruising facebook). I think I approved you tonight, but if not send me a message and we'll figure it out.

Question, what exactly is an FE?
I am so glad to see someone else bringing their infant on the cruise. Our DS will be 3 months when we head off. Your DD will have a blast - we went on our first Disney cruise last September and the kids are still talking about it.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this procedure once the inevitable winter fog causes a delay. On our January cruise last year, the ships' (NCCL and CCL) arrivals were delayed due to heavy fog, and we received a call (just after we'd checked out of our hotel at noon) to not arrive at the port until 6 PM. We spent a lovely afternoon with a leisurely brunch at the Hotel Galvez, walking along the beach and seawall, and doing the carved tree stump tour on our own. We got to the port right about 6 PM; lines were long and we did not get inside the terminal until 7 PM. However, we were on board by 7:30 and the ship cast off at 8:30 PM.[/QUOTE]

Seeing how you went on a cruise last January... How was the weather? Trying to figure out how to pack.

ahh... I was wondering if we'd have the youngest kid on board... I guess not.

Have you cruised with an infant before? DD was 5 when we took her on her first cruise, so we're not really sure what we're in for with this.

Yeah, I'm wondering what Galveston will be like in January (aside from the aforementioned fog). I'm assuming it will be hit-or-miss weather, like much of the gulf coast.

I was also wondering how the Caribbean weather will be in January. I keep reading threads where some people say they thought on previous cruises that it was too cold to swim in the ports! I hope that we don't need to expect to be wearing a jacket on our beach days.. Does anyone know how best to dress in the Caribbean in January on here or should I post this question to the main forum?
