We are so excited to be joining you on the cruise! It will be me and my fiancee/husband sailing along with our families as we are having our wedding on board. We have been on the Dream before but it is our first time on the Wonder.

Welcome aboard. Happy to hear there are more newly weds on this cruise. My DF & I are getting married July 27 back home in Virginia and are taking this cruise as our honeymoon as well.

I know not everyone is on Facebook so I thought I would post the link for the New Fish Extender form on here too. I know none of the previous information was transferred so if you would like to participate please fill out the new form. Thanks!

For those not on facebook ..... we've been watching this documentary in the UK over the last two days. It's absolutely fantastic and I can't recommend it enough. It's airing in the US on Discovery on May 12th if anyone's interested.

Can't Wait For August

Hi Everyone!

We will be joining everyone on this cruise. My name is Kim (43) and I will be traveling with my dh Tom (43) and our three kids. Matt (14), Sarah (13) and Luke (9). This trip is a once in a lifetime dream trip with my parents who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

We are flying into Vancouver one day prior and we will be staying at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel. We have never sailed with Disney before. All of us adults have been on Caribbean cruises on other lines. My kids have never cruised before.

Has anyone decided to book a fishing excursion? My dh and oldest son would love to do some ocean fishing. They have never experienced that before.

We would love to be part of the FE group. I requested to join the FB page and have filled out the Google Doc. I do need more info about what exactly is the FE process? We are new to Disney cruising.

Thanks!

Earned his ears, now wants yours
Slept with 500 or so passports
Stumbling will probably be my primary mode of transportation by then

Welcome Kim

There's definitely more activity on the Facebook group...

In terms of FE - I've been involved in quite a few and have seen quite a bit of variety.

The general idea is that sometime during the cruise, you walk through the ship and drop small gifts into the fish extenders of other people on the list.

Some people drop one gift per cabin, others do gifts for each person in the cabin, sometimes customizing based on the ages of the recipients. I'm personally in the one per cabin group - it's much simpler.

Some people create very nice custom gifts, others do something that reflects where they come from. When I did my first Panama Canal crossing, I bought gifts in bulk on Oriental trading (there were over 140 cabins in the group, and you had to remember to empty your fish extender several times a day - so much stuff was coming in). I'm sure this group will be considerably more manageable :-)

Thank you for setting this up as I am "one of those" who is not on FB! I think I filled out the Google Docs correctly. My kids really enjoyed the FE exchange last time so I know they will want to take part in it again!

LOL! I am one of those who can "book things tomorrow" and my friend mentioned the same thing about Palo brunch. Too funny!

Any recommendations on excursions in Juneau and Ketchikan?

Greetings from Oregon!

Hi!

This will be my first cruise ever, of any kind, and I am sooooo excited!!

My name is Audrey, and it will just be me and my 9 (almost ten, he'd want me to point that out lol!) year old son, hubby's choosing to sit this one out if you can believe that!

I was so happy to hear about this message board, and look forward to meeting my fellow cruisers before we set sail! Oh, and a friend of mine told me I should sign up for the Fish Extender, so I just did that -- even though I don't have a clue what that is!! LOL!
