Linking reservations would be fantastic. That is something we've never done before but would love to try. What does linking entail? Just dining location or other activities?

We enjoy second seating. Can't have dinner interfere with tastings schedule.

Just dining. Linking will seat you together at tables or groups of tables if there is a large group. It is a nice way to get to know others. One person on late and one person on early would need to take care of linking. It involves getting names and reservation numbers of those who want to link and then getting that info to your TA if you have one or DCL if you do not have a TA. That person would also need to let the TA/DCL know if there are families/friends within that group that want to be seated at a table together. Sounds more complicated than it is - just make a list with the info and get that info to TA/DCL. Last cruise they did not have us at the table with our group as requested, but we went to dining manager as soon as we boarded and got it straightened out.

That sounds simple enough. Thanks for the explanation. Perhaps we'll get some more late diners.

Second time Disney cruisers

Hello, we (self, husband, 12yo DD, 7yo DD, 5yo DD/DS twins) will be on this cruise with you all. We booked today, got an awesome military rate on two adjoining verandah staterooms! Blessed to be able to use the military discount, as a family of 6 we could't afford it every year otherwise. Soooo excited. We went on the Dream last October for 4 nights, it was the best family vacation we have ever had. We were sad this sailing didn't hit Castaway Cay, but we are excited to travel on the "re-imagined" ship with some ports of call my kids haven't seen yet.

We plan on going out to the beach, maybe to see the Sea turtles in Grand Cayman, but probably will skip Cozumel.
I saw some folks were discussing the martini mixing class, can we sign up for that on our activities or do we have to wait until we get on the ship?
We requested to have the animators palace twice on the rotation, and we were told about the newest restaurant which will have a Latin flare. We are having a Palo dinner on the second night and Palo brunch on the last day.

Any advice on other shore excursions or tips/tricks about this particular ship would be welcomed! Look forward to meeting you all!

Welcome aboard!!! We are having a 3 pm meet first day at Promanade lounge. Please join us! We also have a FE group set up. PM your info to me if you are interested in that. We have talked about linking for dining also, but do not have anyone taking the lead for that yet.

There is a 13 yo girl onboard and our 13 (turning 14 onboard) grandson also.

We have signed up for excursion in Grand Cayman that goes to the Turtle farm and at Cozumel we are doing the Mayan ruins.

You will sign up for Martini tasting at Guest Services once you are onboard.

And lastly, but certainly not least! We thank your family for your service!!

If anyone on the late dining wants to link up with us, let me know and I can get with my SIL who is a TA to get us linked. Would love to get a group of us together!!

DS just rebooked with FL rates. $900 for he and our DGS in a verandah. Wishing we lived in FL right now.

Myself and Hubby will be joining everyone for our very first Cruise (and hopefully not last) I have been trying to get him to do this for years. I figure this will be a great cruise to get everything figured out. We are late seating for dinner, I have the 3 pm meet in my notes, and would love to join the FE so will send a PM next. Looking forward to meeting everyone =}
