At one point we had both a Med cruise and a spring break cruise booked for next year (never intending to take both), but we ultimately decided to stick with spring break for next year. We really, really want to go to the Med, but it's so crazy expensive when you factor in airfare and excursions! We're really hoping to go in 2015.

So are you doing a Western on the Fantasy in April? This will be our second Eastern, but this one will be going to St. Maarten instead of San Juan. We'll get around to a Western one of these days!
Hi there! Yes, we are doing the Western in April and funny, it will be my second Western on the Fantasy! I say the same - one day I'll do the Eastern on the Fantasy but the school calendar obviously won out! Our sailing is almost sold out and the prices have gone up tremendously so I'm grateful to have locked in opening day and with 10%!

I loved reading your trip report and you did an awesome job with all the details you provided! Thanks for sharing it with all of us

Thanks, Heather! I'm hoping we'll be able to swing a Med cruise in 2015, but if not we'll have to seriously consider a western for that spring. Unless DCL decides to throw us a curveball and offers a southern Caribbean itinerary during spring break time. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us in 2015!

It was great reading your experience on the cruise. My DH and I were on the same cruise. In fact, I believe we were sitting in the water at SB when you got your pic with Jack Sparrow!!! That was a wonderful cruise!!

You'll have an amazing time! Make sure that it's noted on your reservation that you'll be celebrating your anniversary, and tell the concierge hosts on the first day of the cruise as well. Disney is great at making people feel special!

How awesome was that day at Castaway?? I loved that DCL didn't forget about the grown-ups. Seeing Captain Jack and getting my photo with him was one of my favorite moments of the cruise!

Sure was!!! Were you and your DH talking to Jack Sparrow about beer, or either Jack Sparrow had mentioned something about your beer? I'm pretty sure it was you getting your picture when I was sitting in the water, lol.

I think it was the people on the other side of us who asked Jack if he wanted a beer, and he said "Rum!" It seemed like he was having fun, and of course the crowd was eating it up!

Glad to read your trip report! We had Andy and Anne-Marie as well. We've seen Andy since that cruise (no upgrades available on that one ). He get so excited to see repeat cruisers. The best part of concierge was having either one of them at the desk ready to make your day. Thanks for writing the report!

As Andy says in his flamboyant way "Gut Morning!" from Alaska.
