A bit OT, but I was on a Regent ship when it passed another Regent ship for the first time in many years while crossing the med from Greece to Italy. The one ship circled ours. I took lots of zoomed in photos and posted them on the internet. Then I found people on the other ship that had done the same thing and we were able to find ourselves on the deck waving.

So those of you who have photos should post them full size so someone from the other ship might recognize themselves.

I was on the Magic too.........
And we were up on deck eating and i wish i had started taking pictures or video early on, i saw the Wonder WAY WAY FAR AWAY..........I guess iwas in the moment tooo much to realize i shoudl be documenting.

My Dh and kids didnt get it, i kept saying that has to be the Wonder, i dont get it, they never sail this close together.........

And then finally i realized why........

it was very cool to see it coming closer and closer to us.
Just wish i had been with someone who realized the coolnes of it!

I didnt REALLY care that we didnt make it to CC i say this was our learning experince cruise..........we have many more oportunities to see CC and when ever we get their it will be A FIRST! So we have somethign to look forward to!

We, too, were on the Magic in Nassau last Friday. I love seeing everyone's pictures. The cast members were so excited to see the Wonder pulling in. My DS and I were visiting Terk when it was happening, and after meeting us, there was no one else in line, and Terk and his handler even ran outside to see the Wonder come in. I have a really cute picture of Terk on the deck of the Magic with the Wonder pulling in but I have no idea how to resize it to put it here. (it took me forever to get my signature pics and I don't remember how I did it).

I too was very disappointed that we didn't get to Castaway Cay. I know there is nothing they could do, but I am sad and I feel kind of short changed.

We too, were on the Mean Jeanne cruise. But, we never saw the Wonder. We were holed up for countless hours at a hotel Disney rented for the day. I'm pretty sure it was after 9 or 10 at night when we finally got a bus from the hotel and got onboard. Quite a day.

What chaos those few days before!!! We rode Jeanne out at the Poly when we heard that Port Canaveral was shut down (we were actually on our way to the Radisson at PC for that Friday night...we heard about PC evacuating just as we were passing WDW on I4 from Clearwater....So...I said to my hubby...if Iam going to ride out a hurricane I want to do it at WDW...so we pulled in and were able to snag a room at the Poly after waiting on line for 2 hours!!!). Then on Monday or Tuesday (I think Monday) our DCL bus broke down on the way to PE and we had to wait over an hour in the hot sun until a new bus arrived.....glad when we finally were able to board!!!

I was on my first cruise 10/7-10/14 2006 and didn't know that the ships being close together wasn't a common occurance. Here is the picture that I took of the Wonder from our balcony that morning on the Magic... although you can't tell it is other than maybe by its docked location.

I think it was on a Tuesday evening (we were supposed to board Saturday in Canaveral.)
one more, but i don't think it really counts. on the 10 day christmas cruise the magic passed the wonder at night on christmas day 2006 heading from castaway cay to port canaveral.

we were on the magic too
had a great day in Naussau made the most of it
just watching all the crew member meeting each other and shouting and waving to each other from each boat was priceless

Just as an FYI if you don't know, both the Wonder and the Magic are scheduled to be at Castaway Cay on Friday. I don't know quite how they're going to work that, but that's how cruisecal has them listed. I assume that they're really going to change the Wonder's days for at sea and CC on that cruise.

They are switching the 4 day and 3 day cruises this week for Thanksgiving.
