Can one of you CC members check something for me??

I was looking at excursions tonight, as my 75 day mark is Sunday night and there is one excursion that SAYS it's saved to my "wish list" but it doesn't show up on the list. I'm worried that means it's all booked!! Can anyone check for me??

It's a Grand Cayman excursion, Dolphin Enounter and Turtle Farm.

Thanks!!!

When I try to book it, it comes up as conflicting with my other GC excursion; I think that means that it is available, but conflicting, as I *think* it would initially say that it was unbookable if it was full up.

However, I can't add it to my wish list, while other excursions I can...it might just be a bug in the web page.

In related news, Palo "high teas" look filled up; but dinners and brunches are still available.

Thank you so much for checking!! Hopefully it IS just a glitch but if not, I'll try for the "extreme" dolfin encounter...what's another $30 for a belly ride?

Glad to see Palo brunches are still available! That's what I'm going for. Are brunches only on sea days?

Hi, DISers! I just got off the Magic on Saturday. I bought a copy of the Port & Shopping Club book onboard and was wondering if anyone wanted my copy. It is full of coupons and freebies for all the ports you are stopping at. (I used the coupons on the Eastern cruise so all the Western stops are untouched.) For example, Cozumel has coupons for a free magnet, free shot glass, and antique map. Key West has free tanzanite earrings, free gemstone, and free magnet.

The book expires at the end of this year and I'm not going to cruise again so I'd like to pass it along to someone who will! PM me if you're interested.

The book has been claimed!

Do you have your plan in place?

Doing Palo? Dinner? Brunch?

What are you MOST looking forward to?

I would like Palo brunch, I'm not particular on time or day at all, I just want it!!

I have an excursion picked for each port...

Key West - GPS walking tour

Cozumel - Fury Catamaran, Snorkel and Beach Party

Grand Cayman - Dolphin Encounter (this is the one I'm most worried about so I'm going for this FIRST! well maybe after palo brunch...)

Castaway Cay - Parasailing

Smile We cannot wait!

Hi all! We will be joining everyone on our first cruise! We would be me, DH, DS 11, and DS 8. I guess we booked late for a cruise, but we are so last minute that this seems early to plan for us! Looking forward to a fun week at sea with everyone!

For those that really REALLY want to overplan things (that would be ME), here are the "Personal Navigators" for a Magic sailing that resembles ours (7-night western):

http://www.wdwinfo.com/Photos/DCL-Na...8-dm/index.htm

The "Personal Navigator" is the daily newsletter for the cruise, delivered early each morning, and showing what events are planned for that day, what kids' clubs activities are planned and when, dining and bar hours, party announcements, schedule of on-board events, what the (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) drinks of the day are, what's on sale at the Treasure Ketch, where and when characters will be located for photo-ops, what Disney movie is playing in the Buena Vista theater (and when), what movie will be playing on the "ArielView" poolside bigscreen (and when), etc.

Looking at these example PNs will give you a feel for what kids, adult, and family activities are available and (possibly) when. Allways remember that our sailing is not guaranteed to have the exact same event schedule. In other words, use it as a guide, not the final word.

Bring a highlighter on the cruise, as you will probably want to highlight your PN with the things that you really want to do that day.

Less than 24 hours now until the first time DCL cruisers can start booking Palo, shore excursions, etc.! (I think?)

Thanks for the navigators and information! I'm a super planner! I actually found a Diser that lives a few towns over and borrowed HER western caribbean navigators from her last trip!

I'm getting super-excited to do my bookings!! It's actually Sunday at midnight so I have to wait a little longer.....
