We have been to Castaway Cay three times. I would NEVER stay on the ship there. I am always one of the first ones off, running down the side walk trying to find just the right spot Also, snagging my DH a hammock for him to nap in!!

Not having formal night (or whatever they are calling it now) won't bother me. I am really going to try to pack light this time. On a 7 night, I always overpack! But on a 4 night, I shouldn't need too many things!

I am looking forward to the trip. I am just not looking forward to telling my 19 yr old that she isn't going! She is going to be very unhappy!! I thought about softening the blow by telling her that I will take her and her boyfriend to DW as soon as they get out of college for Christmas Break this year. That might make things better.

Hello Fellow Cruisers!

We'll be joining you all for the September 1 cruise as well! This is our second cruise on the Disney Dream and just can't wait! We participated in the Fish Extender Exchange the last time we sailed it was a great experience! Any ideas if someone has started the FE list for this cruise?

So far as I know, no one has mentioned FE's yet, but I imagine it's still very early. I think we will participate too if there is one.
I'm also hoping we'll find time for a Champaign Girls event. I know 4 nights is not very long.

Hello,
I have asked about the FE list back on previous post. To my knowledge there has not been an FE list started as of yet Hope this helps....Will participate as well, just can not commit to starting a list do to my work schedule and not enough time to keep up with it. I guess anyone can start the FE list if they would like...Last year was my first DCL cruise and doing the FE, it was so much fun...

It's still a little quiet around here, but I imagine the conversation will pick up as our sail date approaches

This is my first time making magnets, just got the magnet sheets and the transfer paper in the mail Friday so I am hoping to get some printed out this week. I sure hope it's going to turn out good. I also will be making the shirts that you spray bleach around the mickey head...I am all for trying it to see how all turns out...lots of fun ahead.

We'll be there as well! Myself, DH and our two boys, who will be 13 and 10. We have been on one cruise back in 2009 and the boys have been begging to go on another ever since. I'm so excited it's finally going to happen. Now I just have to decide when to tell the boys.
