Hi cruisers!
I was told to see this thread, since my family and I are probably going to join you (probably, because school in Germany starts two days after our arrival) and I am glad to see that there are so many people going on the same cruise. And I wanted to ask a little advice: For the people arriving by car, do you know a good, safe parking spot in Barcelona? We're a little concerned of letting our car alone for 7 days. Also, I was wondering, since this is the last pre-renovation cruise, do you think that we might be able to get some extra souvenirs, like cutlery from restaurants that will be remade or something like that? I would love to take a special little something home from the Magic. Has anyone here ever taken a pre-renovation cruise? Does something like this happen or is it just wishful thinking? Excuses, if those questions were already asked, I didn't get to read all 22 pages.
Thanks in advance,
Greetings,
Anubis7

Hi Anubis7, and welcome aboard! I do not believe that they will be giving away any cutlery or anything else that will not be in use after the refurbishment, but it won't hurt you to ask, right? There will probably be sales in the shops, but I doubt they would wait until the last cruise to have sales, so the offerings might not be as many. The Disney website has some good information about car parking somewhere I think on your reservation page. Also, I would ask that question on the regular DCL forum (where I found you ) Someone there might know more, because I don't recall this thread mentioning parking.

Is this your first Disney cruise? It really is a lot of fun. Go ahead and ask as many questions as you want, I cannot promise that we will have the answers, though!

If you have facebook, do visit the page that is linked on the first post of this thread. Look at the other events and things on that post and let me know if you want any more information about them.

We are going to have a great time!

Hi debsters41!
I know, that it's pretty unlikely, but a fanboy can hope, right? Oh, I didn't even think of shop-sales, however I hope that there are some, I need to buy a Disney t-shirt, which I managed not to do in 8 Disneyland visits.
And, yes it will be our first cruise, however my mother already cruised as a little girl, so we're all pretty excited(, even my little brother, who always acts like he's too cool for Disney ).
And thanks for the advice, I will certainly follow it.
Greetings,
Anubis7

Hello Fellow Cruisers! For those of you who are just lurking, here is your chance to jump in and be heroes! We need 10 more people to join our Mixology class. That's only 5 couples, Or families with adult children...

As a reminder, Mixology is a class where participants get hands on learning how to make fabulously impressive cocktails. For this cruise, you must be 18 or older to participate (18 - 20 year olds with parents' blessings) and there is a charge per person of 15 to 20 dollars (there is some debate whether it is 15 or 20) It is said to be an amazing experience. Please let me know if you are interested! 15 of your fellow cruisers will be eternally grateful, and will be your best friends forever... (or as long as you can stand them, your choice).

Another Reminder! Anyone who wants to join us for the Hard Rock Meet up and is not on the list already, I need to know within the next week or two because I need to make a per person deposit to secure the booking. If anyone needs more information, just ask!

You can leave it at WTC Parking, not far from the Cruise area:

http://www.wtcbarcelona.com/car-park...barcelona.html

It costs 75 euros the whole week, not expensive at all!

Hello Luis, Fina and Erica! We are going to have a fabulous time on this cruise! See the first page of this thread for more information about some of the things we have planned and let us know if you have any questions about anything at all to do with the cruise. We look forward to getting to know you!

One bit of advice, if you have a travel adaptor for your electronics that need charging (phones, camera, etc.) I suggest you bring it. The ship has only USA style plugs, as far as I know. I am searching my house for my adaptor...

LINKED DINING


Hi everyone

Now that most of us will have booked their palo, spa treatments and excursions, does anyone want to link dining and be sitting with our fellow DISers/FB chums during the cruise, rather than being randomly seated by DCL?

I'm happy to take on this task, if you want to link, please let me know in a PM,

Your lead reservation name
Reservation number
Main or late dining
How many adults and kids in your party and ages of the kids

Makes it easy to have kids of similar ages sitting together

Your ressie for booking activities could get locked out till you get onboard, so get them all done before the link is done

I've posted this on the Facebook page too

It's getting closer!!!

Mary

Last Call for Hard Rock Cafe on the 30th!

Hello again fellow cruisers! Just a notice for our new cruisers that some of us are planning on meeting up the night before the cruise at the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. It is a fun way to meet some of our new friends before we even get on board! I am making the final arrangements now, so I need to know if anyone else is interested. If you want more information, just let me know and I will be in touch!

Thanks for the suggestion! As far as I know, there is one plug at the bathroom adapted for european standard. But some adaptors are a good idea for extra plugs
