Looking forward to seeing many of you at 6pm at HRC tonight. I hope I can get "on track" today. Tuesday night i slept only 2 hours trying to get everything ready for trip - does anyone else feel the need to clean and organize house before going on vacation? I guess I want things to look good if someone burgles my home.

And then during our 8 hour crossing of the Atlantic i slept maybe 2 hours total because I could not get comfy. Tonight I crashed as soon as we checked in an ordered room service, now after 6 hours im back up! At least the kids seem to be catching up on their sleep...

Can't wait to get on the Magic, I love the movement of the ship, it helps me sleep.
I posted on FB page this morning.

Wonderful Cruise!

Hi Everyone-
I hope everyone enjoyed the cruise as much as we did! Got home yesterday after spending a couple of days in San Juan, and now it's back to reality.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank my Secret Mickey! I loved all of my gifts!!!! Thank you so much!
I also want to thank my fish extender friends. Everyone put quite a bit a thought into it and we received so many wonderful things!
And lastly I want to thank everyone who organized all of the DIS meets for the cruise. It would not have been as good as it was without your hard work and organization.

It is so tough to be back to reality after experiencing the most wonderful cruise!! Met so many wonderful people whom I have spoken with on the boards; my candy swap was such a success - thanks Christina and Kasper for helping with the candy overflow; received phenomenal scrapbook exchanges; had the most wonderful time with my traveling friends in our zip code section of deck 9; FE gifts were thoughtful and fun; wow, there is so much to be thankful for, but to everyone whom I met, spoke with, laughed with - you made it such a monumental success and created long lasting memories!!

Great meeting you all

Back home late last night after a great WBTA and Southern Caribbean cruise. It was great meeting you all and sorry I missed those whose Dis names couldn't be matched up with faces.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the organised events and thanks to those who took great pains to plan them. I know Disney didn't play an easy game come the end. Also thanks to Michael (our table mate) for the Navigator and Claire for the roll call.

I would like to thank the person who gave me (Sue Powell cabin 6011) my gifts for the Secret Mickey and I am sorry I was not able to thank you personally. I was hoping to meet you at the 'Till we meet again' lunch with Secret Mickey reveal but apparently you weren't there! I asked the organiser for your name and cabin number but she still had you down as GTY and Guest services quite rightly wouldn't give me your cabin number. I have looked for you on Facebook but can't see your name....YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! So thanks again and the gifts were really appreciated.

Our friends on the WBTA (first time cruisers) enjoyed it so much they are now coming with us on the WBTA next year...shorter I know with less ports but there is so much fun to be had on the ship and we are also doing the Westbound Panama in May so hopefully we can meet up with some of you again.

Hope everybody arrived home safely and for those of us that are suffering with the coughs and colds....get well soon.

Back home yesterday after a great week in Orlando.

I did not participate in any exchanges this cruise due to lack of luggage space, 22 nights away does not leave much room for extras. I would just like to thank the 3 or 4 families who left us little gifts anyway, maybe by mistake or you had some spare but they were much appreciated, thank you.

Also like to thank the boy aged about 10-12 years old who helped us in the Oceaneer Lab with the computer game & ship simulator, we had no idea what we were doing. He had a DIS lanyard but I never got around to asking who he was.

We have booked a 7 night western Caribbean for next August if we keep it. DS has been offered a 1 year job in Ghana starting next summer, after his Uni degree. If he accepts the job we won't cruise, if he declines the job and continues with a Masters degree then we probably will take the cruise.

Hello

Got broadband on and got internet back... oh

I enjoyed this cruise and lovely to met new faces and old faces too.

Lucky we flew the day before as we missed the connection flight at Gatwick through security and we had to waited until evening for another flight It was a long day for us but we did make it and on the cruise too... I regarded to miss out Hard Rock...

But my family and I enjoyed the cruise and thank for Candy and FE. I love the bag which someone who made it, I don't know from but it is fab bag. and all FE was good.

I can't believe how much Candy we brought it home and have to split four bags to put in the bags. It was yummies..

I think I have mixed up with FE and scrapbooking as the reason we moved to new house few days before this cruise and broadband/internet was shut down and I didn't print out.

I hope FE and scrapbooking that you all got it from me as I hope no one missed it out? if so, my apologies... Also I was unable to print out my designs for magnet for the door... that was a huge disappointed as everything was upside down when we moved to new house at last mins by lawyer.

I was unable to print it out and lucky one lady gave me her paperwork and I managed to get it copy from DCL... Big thank to you I think it was KIm?

I managed to get secret Mickey.

Big thank to you Secret Mickey for Olivia and Keith... what a fab gifts.

It was fab times on the Cruise with beautiful weather too apart from San Juan.

I cannot believe about San Juan port as we were standing the queue for one half hours for passport etc.

Anyway, Lovely to met you all

Forgot to say goodbye to David and Tara from California... if you know they are on disboard or facebook?

Hi

I have done the Panama Canal Westbound not east bound.

I have to say that it was amazing cruise for PC. I would love to do that again...

I am sure you will love it.

I posted this on FB, but I know not everyone is part of that world...so:

I can't begin to express how much I loved participating in the FE, Secret Mickey, candy swap, and postcard/recipe exchanges. What fun!!! Hubby was like a little kid, checking the FE multiple times daily and getting excited over every little gift . We also loved the extra magnets that appeared on our door from our Magnet Fairies (really got a kick out of the pirate ones placed above our doorway). I know there were some people I probably missed when I delivered gifts and couldn't tell for certain if the cabin was occupied or not...generally left things anyway but ended up with more extras than I should have. I apologize if anyone was left out.


We had planned to share goodies with the cm's, but ended up just stuffing everything into our suitcases (due to lack of sorting time) and taking it to our hotel in San Juan. Jess then picked out what she wanted to take home to TX, with the rest coming home to PA with us. I was amazed by the generosity and true Disney spirit in our little groups .


Thanks again, everyone!

I have looked for you on Facebook but can't see your name....YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! So thanks again and the gifts were really appreciated.

Our friends on the WBTA (first time cruisers) enjoyed it so much they are now coming with us on the WBTA next year...shorter I know with less ports but there is so much fun to be had on the ship and we are also doing the Westbound Panama in May so hopefully we can meet up with some of you again.

Hope everybody arrived home safely and for those of us that are suffering with the coughs and colds....get well soon.
Glad you are back safe and sound Sue and hope that the scuba diving went well. See you next year lol!

I can't begin to express how much I loved participating in the FE, Secret Mickey, candy swap, and postcard/recipe exchanges. What fun!!! Hubby was like a little kid, checking the FE multiple times daily and getting excited over every little gift . We also loved the extra magnets that appeared on our door from our Magnet Fairies (really got a kick out of the pirate ones placed above our doorway). I know there were some people I probably missed when I delivered gifts and couldn't tell for certain if the cabin was occupied or not...generally left things anyway but ended up with more extras than I should have. I apologize if anyone was left out.


Thanks again, everyone!
I agree that it was great fun! I came back with so much stuff and it was so exciting seeing what people had left each day (or multiple times a day lol). I have almost finished all the candy but it has taken a monumental effort to get through it all!

Thank You



Thanks to everyone who made our cruise so special. I met so many new people and had a fantastic time on the WBTA!

I participated in the cabin crawl and poker run. Although I didn't win the poker hand it was so nice seeing a variety of cabins. A big thanks to Lucas for arranging this.

Champagne Girls was fun. A very chatty group but I still managed to learn something about champagne along the way. And I'm still not a convert (to wine or champagne) but I couldn't resist the opportunity to wear a boa and a tiara at the same time

I love the re-imagined Magic. I think they did a good job. The shade on Deck 10 was certainly appreciated with all the great weather we had crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

To my new friends and my old friends - best wishes til we meet again

Lynn

Hi All, apologies for the delay in posting on here, had a few issues accessing Disboards.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for making Oskar and Matilda's first adventure with Mickey Mouse so special. We have some amazing memories and photos. It was out first time in the Fish Extender and Candy Swap world, but this was amazing, people were so generous.

Thank you once again, until we meet again!!

Rachael
