I've never been on a cruise where the group I was sailing with was small enough to not be seated together. Part of me thinks it would be terribly exciting to dine with strangers and get to know them, another part of me shudders at the idea and fills me with enough anxiety to eat at the buffet or have room service for dinner every night.

Just checked the calander...

and it just dawned on me that we're less than 3 months away from sailing! From the looks of things all of you knew this already (I'm just slow). Anyway, is anyone organizing FE groups? I'd like to join if there's room

Sorry I am just now seeing this! I think we dock at all ports rather than tendering.

I found the following beaches using google maps and travel websites:

Antigua - runaway beach
Barbados - Accra beach
Grenada - grand anse beach
At kitts - short stop so not going to the beach
At Lucia - we want to see the pitons so we're doing a DCL excursion

We will not be going to the beach at each of those first three stops listed above - too much sun for the tiny person and grandparents.

Everyone probably already knows this, but Palo brunch will be offered on the St Kitts morning. I had already booked for the one sea day and so we didn't need the St Kitts day. I'm not sure yet if they have opened it up to everyone.

Only problem with the St Kitts day is the excursions... only the 10:30 would really work and those were gone when I looked at silver opening. Earliest was 11 and thats too close to our 12:15 excursion. With only 4 hours on the island I am sure most start around the same time as ours too.

Has anyone called yet to get details in the Halloween festivities for the late September and October cruise dates?

It was news to me - I had no idea they decorated for Halloween, had parties, etc.

Will folks be bringing costumes?

No need to call - lots of info available online about the details if you do a search. Many will be bringing costumes - we are also planning to but we will have to see if it fits in the luggage.

I checked into it and apparently, Halloween won't start on the Magic until late October. All the other boats will be decorated for Halloween starting in late September.

Link? Here is mine:
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/ho...ses/halloween/

It says Sept 27th through Oct 26th sailings on the Magic.

Last I checked this isn't 2013 - I think that is the confusion!

In 2013, the Magic was still in dry dock for refurb in September-mid October, which is why it got slightly later dates.

I am planning to bring a costume of some sort, I think--given there is enough luggage space.
