August 16th, 2014 - FANTASY Western Caribbean

I know it's really, really early, but we are so looking forward to this cruise!

We booked on opening day, transferring a dummy reservation. We are super psyched to have 2 adjoining category 8As!

Traveling in my group will be me (29 when we go), DH (30 when we go), and DD (will be just about 4). We are also traveling with my parents. This will be our second cruise, as we were on the Dream 4-night Bahamian on August 1st, 2012. By the time the first night was over, my husband looked at me and said, "Four days isn't going to be enough is it?". The next day we had an OBB made!

Now that we have discovered DIS, we are very much looking forward to making some DIS friends and participating in a FE. A FE group has been set up on facebook - here's the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/258966784242671

Is anyone else on this cruise?

We're on this cruise as well! We also booked on opening day by transferring a dummy reservation and will be in two adjoining category 9B rooms on deck 2. This will be the third DCL cruise for DH and I and the second for our three DDs. We did Alaska on the Wonder in August 2012 as a family and DH and I honeymooned on the Wonder in 2000.

We are:

Myself (Sarah), I'll be 41 (yikes) when we sail.
DH (Trevor), 45 when we cruise.
DD (Maddie), age 12 when we cruise.
DD (Tori), age 9 when we cruise.
DD (Ainslie), age 7 when we cruise.

After we sailed the Wonder last August, it was our daughters' wish to sail the Fantasy next. They're hooked on cruising. We also plan to visit WDW either before or after the cruise for about a week.

We participated in a Disboards group and FE on our Alaska cruise and made some really wonderful friends. I hope to get to know some new people again to make this experience another great one.

Welcome! We are so excited for a longer cruise this time!

We are planning on doing two or three days at Sea World and Aquatica prior to the cruise. We contemplated doing Walt Disney World before hand, but figured that 2-3 days would be a bit too much of a tease, and we won't be able to get any more time off.

We have just asked for a quote on this cruise. We are going on a Med cruise this Summer but really want to do a Cruise from Florida on one of the newer ships. We would do Disney first I think as it is our school holidays so can stay a bit. We live in UK and coming would be me, my 2 boys (10 and 6) and my parents. My favourite thing to do is FE!!! I REALLY REALLY hope this case comes back affordable so I can join you!!

My eldest, Jackson will be 10
Youngest, Ethan, will be 6.
Also travelling with us, in a family cabin, will be my mum and dad

I have a secret countdown but boys won't know until Christmas that we are going. They don't even know yet that we are cruising the Med in August!! My eldest is desperate to visit Casraway Cay, he is just disappointed the Pirates ship is no longer there!

That's fantastic! Is it your first cruise on DCL?

So far our cruise meet list has a few kids all around the same age - that's exciting for you guys!

I added you to the roll call - Welcome!

We are booked on this cruise, so please add us to the roll call.

We transferred a dummy reservation on opening day. We are in Stateroom 7102, the exact same stateroom we had on the Fantasy in August 2012.

We are:

Myself (Jane)
DH - (Mike)
My mom and the kid's Nana - (Janet)
DD - (Allison)......age 13 at cruise time
DS - (Michael)......age 8 at cruise time

This will be our fourth cruise. We did a 4 day Wonder in October 2009, a 7 day Western Magic in October 2010 and a 7 Day Eastern Fantasy in August 2012.

Really looking forward to the new port of Jamaica and seeing what excursions might be offered.

Having the same stateroom would be pretty cool - just like coming home!

We are super excited about getting the 8As that we wanted - I think they will be perfect for our family. We are really excited about getting to explore the Fantasy, as we barely scratched the surface on the Dream in August.

What was your favourite feature of the Fantasy?
