While my favorite is 'Shadow of the Wind,' I thoroughly enjoyed the other two books as well, which again focus on the Sempere family. The three books make a very, very enjoyable read. I particularly enjoyed the references to places we visited/will visit in Barcelona. These books really bring the history of Barcelona to life, and on our visits to Barcelona, the buildings, streets and places have a new meaning.

Our awesome TA snagged us one of the sideways 11B cabins on deck 6 on opening day, which we are really excited about.

I am so shocked to see how active this thread is already! I hadn't even thought of checking in on this since we are focused on our 7/13/13 12-Night Med cruise on the Magic this summer, which is a ton of planning and excitement- but I saw this thread at the top of the main page today and thought, let me check it out, and I couldn't believe how busy it was! I sure have a lot of reading to catch up on. I am really glad that it looks like everyone is super organized and into super planning like me. I loved how on my WBPC cruise on the Wonder in 2011, we had people pre-organizing Tshirt logos, lanyards, wristbands, pins, meets and more. It really added to the enjoyment of the trip. Surprisingly our 12 night Med cruise this summer is fairly quiet for a "special" cruise (one of only 2 going to Greece/Turkey). But, on that one we'll be so busy with port intensive European touring so its all good. I'll definitely look forward to all the extra DIS stuff though on this TA. I still can't believe how cheap I booked this cruise for, and for 14 nights! Its almost unreal. Even with airfare, its such a steal and so exciting to hit so many new ports.

Well I'm off for now, and will slowly but surely try to start catching up over the next few weeks in between planning for my other cruise! I already sent PM's/emails to those listed on page 1 for the stuff we want to sign up for so far.

We are on the other Greece/Turkey cruise in June I have to agree that this is a much busier thread with a lot more stuff planned for the ship which I love and do understand that there are a lot of ports on the Med cruise. I am trying to keep up with this thread because. planned activities are filling up fast and we are more than a year out. I sent an email to be added to the FE list a week ago. How often is the list updated? I just want to make sure my email was received.

Secondly, I've looked at flights, and suspect that we may end up on Aer Lingus from Boston. We can use our southwest points to fly to Boston from Kansas City. The schedule for this September has that flight (through Dublin) arriving around 10:00am. For those of you who have done this before, what have you done with your luggage until you check in to the hotel? Do you leave it at the hotel and then go explore? Will we all be too jetlagged to really do anything that day? I'm imagining our family showing up at the hotel and all falling asleep in the lobby until they take pity on us and let us check in.


Just a thought, you can use points from MCI to MDW (Chicago), there is a shuttle to ORD. Then take PIA (Pakistan Airlines) non-stop to BCN. I live in Chicago area and will do that. I used PIA in 2011. They are very good and it's usually cheaper than other airlines. It's maybe worth looking at for you.

Yes it'll probably split into groups of 20 or so cabins per group, so when you're ready just drop me an email and if you have an idea of how many you might like to do. No rush though!

Zafon started out writing novels for young adults. I've read one, 'The Prince of Mist;' well written and kinda spooky. It reminded me of the Weeping Angel stories on Doctor Who.

I'll be taking my Chapters giftcard I received at Christmas to see if I can find these! I loved 'Shadow of the Wind' so much that I did search for other books by the author when I first finished reading it but didn't find any...looks like they hadn't been written yet! Guess I missed the books for young adults as I didn't look in the youth section. I still prefer "real" books so only searched in my local bookstore

Thank you for the suggestion on "Shadow of the Wind." Downloaded it to my Nook. The book reviews on Barnes and Noble were excellent, and it was highly recommended by the majority of the 800+ reviewers, as well as you all!!

I'm not trying to be nosey, just don't want you to miss out if your want to attend these tastings. Did you send me a pm for either of the tastings I'm taking names for?
Deb, I am interested in both of these. I think LovingtheMouse was going to message you back and tell you I am interested in the Rum cocktail tasting and the mixology. I'm in room # 6131 with LovingtheMouse (Caroline).

Thanks!

I prefer smaller groups (20-25) because of the restrictions on luggage. Especially since we can't ship our FE gifts to the port like we can do when sailing out of PC.
