And for getting off, my luggage tag wasn't called yet as of 8:45 am and they said the last shuttle to IAH was at 9:30 am. I talked to a cast member and he let us off no problem and the luggage was there.
I also have the palette of the broke college student I am so I'm sure that helped none. This time around the MDR food just all seemed to have some sort of shrimp in it and if it didn't it was steak (I also don't eat red meat) so I guess my being a bit picky also didn't help

The future cruise sales guy apparently wasn't with it on this cruise. He totally messed up our bookings. Wrong people in cabins, wrong addresses, he used my MIL's credit card to pay our deposit and vice versa.

The prepaid gratuities thing is a bit confusing too. We booked a dummy cruise, which is currently $500 pp. Our confirmation email says $450 pp and has another line for $96 in prepaid gratuities. BUT, when I go onto the website to look at prices, it tells me the cruise fare is $498 pp and no where is there any mention of that price including gratuities. There is no where I can remove the gratuities either, so I guess I will ask for that to be done when I call to correct all the other mistakes.

Two Disney Ships

How cool that the Dream stopped by CC. Did anyone get a picture of the two ships together? I would love to see one.

It's typically Tea with Alice (but can be with the Princesses, Disney Friends, or even Wendy). It depends on the character/actors available on any given cruise.

We got off the Wonder yesterday & for us the tea was with Tiana & Ariel. That's not to say that it will stay that way for all of the Galveston sailings though.....

We were probably in the first 20 families on board and were offered 2 times for the tea: Sunday at 4 pm or Friday at 4 pm. Sunday was formal night and we had early dining, so I felt that conflicted a bit and chose Friday. As PP said, it was Tiana and Ariel.

Priced them again this morning and still they were cheaper on the DCL website then the quoted prices I got on board, so for this reason we did not rebook onboard and just plan to book direct through DCL.

Overall: great vacation that went by WAY too fast! I cannot wait to get back on a DCL ship soon!!!
You know you can move the date and keep the 10% right? I rebook onboard for just a cheap 3 night cruise and then move it to what I actually want when I get home or when new dates come out.

Yes we knew that, but since we already know exactly what dates we want going that route was not worth it for us.

I do! I took TONS since I had never seen a Dream Class ship in person, let's see if I can get this to upload. The Wonder is on the left and the Dream on the right. Checked it and it worked just click on the link for the picture!
