[QUOTE=heatherpenni;48398804]Is there anyone who happens to be around mine or my family's age? I'll be 27, at time of cruise, hubby will be 29 and my kids will be 10 and 5 (one month away from 6). I'd like to make some connections or some friends to have on the ship who can help me should I need, I'm not particular about age as I feel I'm much more mature than my age but it would be nice. Also I'm from Whitby, ON, is anyone from the general area on this cruise as well?

Welcome to Disboards! We definitely live your general area. We are in Toronto...a few fellow Canadians who cannot wait for the Caribbean!

It's also the elevator that takes you directly to animators pallet and the night clubs

It's on the starboard side of the ship so you get an awesome view of Castaway Cay when we get there. It has a nice Queen bed with a curtain to close off the kids sleeping area and a balcony. There is room under the bed for storage and you get the bath and toilet separate.

The only thing with the rear of the ship is that you may feel the movement a bi more than if you were in the middle but i only had one night (as we sailed around a storm) where i felt it and you may get a bit of noise outside your room as your closer to the elevators and stairs than i was.

I hope that helps.
Thank you very much! This helps greatly... All information is helping very much. It's making me that much more exited!!!

Town car rates vary a fair bit but as there is a lot of you travelling it's a good way to go. The magical express is $35 pp each way so $70 per person round trip. For your group of 5 that would be $350 bucks so town car is cheaper.

You can rent a car for around $30 a day and i believe budget have a rent a car spot at the port so you can do 2 one way drives if your interested in going solo. Then you can leave your luggage in the car while to shop at DTD. look out for coupons if your going to hire a car too.
I will look into that. As renting a car would be a LOT cheaper than doing the town car. And we wouldn't "need" it for anything more than transport to and from each destination. Well, other than the last day and we want to go to DTD. Thanks!

I would like to know more about this as well. It would be fun to do this for my girls and myself as well to go on my charm bracelet! What a neat idea!

I am SO pumped about Planes! I'm really not sure who is more excited.. DS1 or DH!! On another note, just back from WDW and I'm wishing Disney would just go ahead and sell their ice cream treats locally. I would give anything to have a mickey bar right about now...

KJAnsen-
Our group did the Stingray Encounter on Castaway Cay last October and we really liked it!! They get you set up with your gear and a safety briefing in the hut and then everyone heads out to the lagoon. From there they divide the large group into smaller groups that can fit around the stingray table. The table is set up so a small/medium sized stingray can swim up the ramp, be fed by someone at the table and them swim back down into the water. It's VERY cool. After the stingrays have had their fill, and you have had all of your stingray questions answered you will have free time to snorkel amongst the rays in their lagoon.

Let me know if you have any other specific questions about it! I'm sorta a stingray junkie... I've done several other stingray encounters and I'm pretty sure I was made for the water...

to the DISboards and to our cruise thread.

I added you to the list of cruisers in my first post and the FE list. I updated my online list as well and will upload it as soon as possible.
Thanks for providing me with all the information needed at the moment. Please let me know your stateroom number once you find out about it.

With regards to people that have a guaranteed cabin class but don't know now what their cabin is when will they find out? Is it usually at checkin or sometime before?
