Took Disney Magic w/Kid For Christmas, Is It Crazy To Go Disney on 2-23 Without Kid?

UPDATE-YAY!!! OUR CRUISE IS NOW BOOKED AND PAID FOR IN FULL FOR 2-23!!!

Hi all!!!

We L-O-V-E-D our 1st cruise (which was on the Disney Magic out of Galveston) so much Christmas 2012, that we are considering booking to go on another Disney cruise on February 23rd, without our only kid that's in college.

We're having a difficult time trying to decide if we want to try out a different brand of cruise ship companies out of Galveston since we just took a Disney cruise.

We have a feeling if we don't do Disney, we will compare all the other brands to Disney and we really don't want to waste time, energy & money only to be dissappointed, but DH is curious about the other Galveston Cruises.

Have any of you ever gone on any other brand besides Disney? Anyone our age (43 & 45) in this thread going without kids? Any advice?

Thanks in advance !!!

1. Let DCL know its your Birthday (if you have not already done so).
2. Book dinner and / or brunch at Palo's (find time / place to make reservation on board as soon as you check in at port).
3. Dress up as a pirate on pirate night and watch the fireworks topside.
4. Let your room steward / guest services know if any thing is wrong during your cruise - they will do their best to fix it (take post it notes to leave messages for your room steward on your bathroom mirror).
5. Board early as you can and carry swimming attire on board - take advantage of all the time you can on the Magic.
6. If you have kids - take pillowcases / frame mattes with markers and turn in to guest services after you board - you will be rewarded with character signed mementos of your trip before you debark.
7. Let your room steward know you would like a bucket of ice left in your room daily - they will do it at no extra cost
8. Order cookies / Mickey ice cream bars from room service (take dollar bills for tips).
9. Relax and have fun
10. Book on board a future cruise (dummy or real date) - you will save money.

Hi all fellow cruisers!

In 8 days, I'll be cruising your se itinerary. I have a few questions for you.

Can you tell me who your captain, cruise director and "cruise entertainer" we're?

Also, was it cold at any time that I will need more than one pair of pants? Last year in the Caribbean , I wore shorts and skorts all week.

Thanks!

Sonia

If I remember right, I think the Cruise Director was Peter, and caption was John (now that one im really not for sure). It was only cold leaving Galveston Port and cold coming back into Galveston. Other then that shorts were a must for the beautiful weather! Hope you have a great time. That was the most AMAZING vacation I have EVER had!!!!
