That's right you mentioned that. I don't know anything about the Art of Animation. Do they only have one Nemo suite or do the have several? I imagine they have other themes because its not called the Nemo hotel, lol.

I have a dvc membership so I'm staying at one of those hotels. I think the one you are staying at is really new. I bet it's nice!

Welcome babybun! I will add you to the Facebook group tomorrow, in Disneyland today!

San Diego was fun, really made me want to go on a cruise!! We saw the Hal zaandam and the celebrity century in port... I was quite jealous that we were not boarding too! Lol, just got me even more excited for the fantasy! Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Those of you have cruises with other lines...have any of you tried Princess? I'm thinking of going during fall break here to give it a try. Any experiences to share?

I have been on 3 princess cruises and would gladly sail them again! Very elegant and higher end then ncl, carnival, etc. in my opinion. depending on the sailing there tends to be a more mature crowd. I would expect the dining and service to be similar to Disney (not that I have sailed Disney, just what I am expecting). I think you should give it a try... Sailing other lines is a fun new experience, you should do it!

Ooooh we are not 'elegant' people.I like the relaxed feel of Disney. I dress pretty casually and abhor formal night. Will I feel uncomfortable on Princess?

You'll do fine...most formal nights are getting less formal! I've sailed Princess many times and have one booked in August for the British Isles. One of my favorite lines.

I agree, I dress up for dinner but not very one does and you'll feel just fine no matter what you wear, there is such a mix of people dressing up and people dressing down... You'll be just fine wearing whatever you like on princess.

Hi Everyone! Back from the western on the Wonder - we had a great time, Miami is a beautiful port to sail from. Grand Cayman and Cozumel were lovely. I am really looking forward to the Fantasy now as it will mean I have been on all 4 ships.

We couldn't resist booking the Southern Caribbean (fall 2014) while on board - so much to look forward to!

I was very interested in the information about Princess - so many lines - just don't know which others to try. Thanks for sharing about that.

It is a bit sad to be back to winter.

Did you see much of Miami? I remember it being pretty run down and dirty. This was about 30 years ago though so it might have changed by now

No, didn't see much of it - just drove straight to the port. From the ship it was very beautiful - much more impressive sailing out than from PC! The port area was run down - not unlike industrial areas in any big city. The terminal was like an airport - not Disneyfied at all and freezing cold inside.
