I think you have to have 10 posts to do PMing. I don't think anyone here would mind if just post post post to get your count up to 10. I wouldn't do it on the main board but here in the rollcall so you can work out details about the trip, I think that's ok. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

We are booking tonight at 10 pm mountain time. This will be our 38th Disney Cruise. I think it is somewhere over 240 nights on the Disney ships. I need to take up permanent residency I think.

Will you adopt DH and me! Our 90 days is just pennies compared to you. You need to celebrate when you reach 365!

Just did the math .. and up to now (7 cruises) 70 days. This cruise will bring me up to 82 days and if I cruise 2 7 day cruises, I will be at 96 days when I hit platinum. I could have hit platinum after 30 days, if I only chose 3 day cruises (and saved money too!)

I have a question? Do they use US Dollars on board while in the Med or Euro? Just curious about tipping during the cruise.

Michael - the ship uses US dollars, but you should be able to exchange for Euros on the Shore Excursions desk side of the ship.

We are longer-sailers, too. We have 46 nights on DCL already and are adding 24 this trip. Add in another 14 on other cruiselines so that's a total of 60 nights (65 for me) plus these 24 and we'll be at 84 (89) - nearly 3 months on a cruise ship! We've had 6 sailings on DCL.

To add to Cindy's comments on our last Baltic cruise they will only exchange travelers checks or currency for Euros they will not let you charge to your room or a debit card. Good part is that they give a fare exchange with no additional fees and will exchange back all paper currency if you have the receipt that you got the money from them. Great service. Sue

Hi! My family is sailing with you on this cruise and I've updated their information of the spreadsheets. Managed to book Palo Brunch and some excursions, but no availability for Palo dinner (at all). Anyone else encounter the same problem?

No palo dinner was available. I was told by another person that happened last week but opened up the next day so I will try tomorrow.

How can that possibly be. You guys are the first to book. It can't be sold out yet...

Like the others no Palo dinner we were able to get brunch. Adult excursion for Hightlights in Malata was not even showing
I am getting too old for these late night bookings when I have to get up and be a work the next day. Next time because I am sure there will be one I am taking the next day off! Happy Friday everyone on President's weekend from the colonial capital of Virginia.

Finalizing Booking not Working

I tried to complete our booking early this am and tought maybe they were back to the 3 am time well I tried this morning still unsuccessful. So in addition to no Palo dinner you cannot finalize our booking time.
