Just found this thread! We are also going to be on this cruise - myself, DD (13) and DD (12 at cruise time). My DM has also decided to join us (but with her own cabin).

This is our first Disney cruise (and my first cruise in 15 years)! This is also my first post on ANY forum ever!

Hi there,
Welcome to our forum ladies. We had never joined a forum until we joined this one but seems everyone is friendly and there are loads of 12 to 14 year old girls going to be on board. Our daughter (13 on the cruise) had a ball on our last cruise on The Magic in the Med in 2011 so I'm sure you all will have a fab time. There's plenty of info already on here but we will be happy to provide any other info.
Regards
Fiona

Thank you, Fiona! My biggest concern right now is that when our booking window opens (May 11 - since we are first timers), we will get boxed out of any DCL excursions that we were interested in. Should I relax or be worried?

Hi Kim

We have found that there is usually good availability for most excursions, the things you may find harder to get are the "signature" type tours like the private gondala ride or private vehicle tours as these are more limited.

Perhaps it would be a good plan to work out a couple of excursions which would appeal in different ports and then when the Gold and Silver castaway club bookings open we can keep an update of what is sold out.

Also it is important to remember that availability can and does change. If you can't get what you want online it is still a good idea to go to the Port Adventures desk onboard (in the atrium on Deck 3) and ask what they have available and if there is something you really want that isn't available you can ask to be waitlisted for it - it may not come through but people change their plans all the time.

I would try not to worry and just relax, safe in the knowledge you are going to have an awesome trip regardless!

Mel

Still hoping to persuade friends sister to have her home economics pupils create it, I think it would be a great sewing lesson for them

Meeska, I have the same concern about the excursions, but we get to schedule on the 26th. As Meeska stated, thanks for the encouragement Mel. Hopefully, we will all get what we want.

My family has voted on the excursions they want for France, Pisa, Rome, and Naples. With a top choice, second, and third choice in case of availability.

Nicole, great idea for the facebook page. Unfortunately, I don't have facebook. I'll just have to sneak peeks via my DW's page.

Nicole, part of my family's choice on Pisa was a Pisa/Florence excursion. So, I'm hoping to hit a little Michelangelo. Both of my kids want to see the leaning tower, but not climb it. Really, you want to go for the picture - that's all. Jeesh, I can photo shop that at home. At least we'll go to Florence as well.
