We got back yesterday from the 12 day med cruise and it was awesome and the ship looked pretty good. Most of the crew is leaving the ship for the 6 weeks in Spain while in dry dock. Captain Robert shared that there will be 1,200 contractors working on the ship!

Hello everyone. DW, DS13 (by then) and DS16. It'll be our third cruise, though first on the Magic. We hope to finish the grand slam on Xmas '14 on the Fantasy.

At this point, the cruise is still at 95% happening for us. We will spend xmas in WDW at CSR with FD (that's at 90% for sure) with a 75% chances of spending the night of 12/26 on MIA.

We'll be staying on an inside cabin - first for us - but this is supposed to be a cheap Xmas time cruise.

I don't think we'll participate in any FEs (kids not into it) but will stop by if we do a cruise meet.

Looking forward to it.

Welcome to the disboards and the Bahama Cruise

Welcome! It will great to get to know each of the disboard participants an a dismeet. We often find out we have a lot in common and or doing the same port adventures. Although this a short cruise everyone seems to turn into friends and family aboard the Magic.

Welcome!

There are a lot of family/friends in our group but not you children's ages. We have my nieces two babies, my nephew had a 5 yr old boy and a girl who will be 2.5 by the time of the cruise. The adults range in age from 27 (army captain) to late 60s. We have 3 active duty army officers; one former active duty and 3 retired officers.

I would be interested in a FE group if someone organizes it.

I will be traveling with my DH - Dennis, DS - Scott (23), DDIL - Amanda (24), DD - Shelby (21), DS - Daniel (15), and DS Darrin (15).
That's awesome! Same staterooms for all 3?

Our very first cruise!

He everyone I have booked our very 1st cruise on the Disney Magic. We are going on the 3 day Bahamian cruise. We are very excited except our 10 year old son has no idea it is a surprise for him for Christmas morning. Just a question, I was told to get on here to meet fellow cruisers and was told about some sort of banner you hang on the doors to exchange small gifts with each other. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Im counting the months and days till we ship out!

Welcome Aboard! What an awesome Christmas gift for your son. The gift exchange is called a Fish Extender. If you search that term, you will get loads of pictures and information. As of right now there isn't an official list organizer for the exchange. When someone takes it on they will keep a list of people participating, ages, stateroom numbers. You will have such an amazing time on the cruise!

Who is staying the night before in MIA or FLL? This past Feb, before cruising the Wonder, we stayed at the Hampton Inn Blue Lagoon and it was a great hotel. We did a points + $ reservation (so it was bout $50 out of pocket). But not an option at this time, so might be looking elsewhere.

I could do points+$ at the Conrad, but then I'll have parking fees. If not we might just check out that morning from CSR and drive early (except I'm not a morning person . Looking for something decent but not too expensive, and ideally with breakfast and parking. I plan on parking at the port, so no need for park and cruise deals.

BTW, we drive from NJ (but as I mentioned before more than likely spending xmas at WDW)

TIA.

Sue had said earlier she would not mind organizing this if it was small but I had told her I would assist her. Not to worry the list will be organized as we get closer to a sail date. As for right now I am keeping a tally of your sign on names the amount of adults sailing M/F Children M/F and ages. Later I will send out a post asking for stateroom numbers if I am the one to organize. Sue can chime in and let me know if she wants me to take this on. During the later part of September we will choose a cut off date for people to join.

Hi everyone and welcome new folks. I have been out of town on business and not keeping up. I will see how many of my group are interested in FE and if they are I will be happy to organize. Sue
