Hey there! Welcome aboard! My wife and I ljm23 and our son along with Anetnmike and their son cruised together on 2/8! We met each other through a meet thread for that cruise! So Wendy and SCQ86...was it your first cruise, did you meet here on the boards or on the ship?

hi there!

this was our first cruise. We have been friends for a long time. WE have always dreamed of taking the Disney cruise, so we thought it would be cool to all go together. There was another family with us, but they havne't decided if they are bouncing back or not.
We met a few really nice people on the ship and are hoping there is at least one more family that will be joining us.
We have to try a little harder to convince them...lol

It's my second Disney cruise this year too. Sailed on the Wonder January 4th on a four night with my 20 year old daughter and her boyfriend, it was part of their Christmas gifts. This time I'm sailing with my sister, it will be her first cruise! Not so sure how I feel about the 3 night after experiencing the 4 and that wonderful day at sea! Same deck different category stateroom. Heading to DW after for a conference and a few days in the parks. Will then head home either on 22nd or 23rd.

My dh felt the same way about going from a 4 day down to a 3 day. But since we weren't all that impressed with Nassau, we decided we were going to stay on the ship and relax that day.
But we are determined to scour every inch of Castaway Cay this time! We hit the beach and snorkeled and then it cooled off a bit, so we went back to the ship. Never explored at all.
We are on the same deck, just the other side this time.
Dh is also thinking about doing the Christmas party at the Magic Kingdom this time.

Hello everyone!
Hey Wendy! We are "practically" neighbors! We live in the Plainfield area. I went to nursing school at Christ Hospital (many,many years ago)and lived on Wojo burgers
We are planning on snorkeling on CC this time too. I really really hope the water is not too cold.
We booked our same exact cabin because we liked the locale so much
Glad to meet our new ship mates!

I've gone to Wojo's a few times....good stuff!!!

We loved the snorkeling at CC. I lasted about an hour before I got tired. My dh was out about 2 hours, found TONS of fish, Minnie statue and the Mickey statue. He went thru 2 underwater cameras. He finished off one camera and had to come all the way back to get the second one...lol..he wasn't too happy.
The water was alittle bit cold when you first got in, but you got used to it very quickly. At one point, when we were out there, the temp changed so drastically, dh and i looked at each other and said holy crap! i thought it would be colder further out but it was nice! That's how we were able to stay out longer.
Lots of different fish and huge schools of them! Dh even saw a stingray.

What category did you book? We were in a Cat 4...room 8528. We couldnt get the same room this time. But we are on the other side of the ship, so we can see the sunrise from our room this time.

Hey Wendy and Kutchyone! I agree with ya that going from a 4 day to a 3 day is going to be hard. I know it's going to feel like we just got on and then we're getting off! The reason we're doing a 3 day is simple...the bounceback deal! Cheap vacation getaway during the cold weather! We won't be going to WDW after or before the cruise this time. DW booked us on a 7 day in 2010 and plans on booking another one when we get onboard. She also has her sights set on the inaugural sailing of the new ship in 2011
Wendy, how did you like your Cat 4 room? We may upgrade to a Cat 4....don't know yet. My DW is like a TA/Cruise Director/Spa Expert!
I know it's early but 3pm at the Goofy pool sounds like a great meeting time to me! What say you?

So what's a Wojo burger?

Mike

Hey guys
We booked cat9. We have so much fun onboard that we don't spend lots of time in our cabin but we thought it would be fun to have a verandah so I actually had my TA call DCL today to see if we could upgrade to a cat6. They said no. Just FYI.
I am with you guys. I would much rather a few more days of cruising but $99 is $99.
Mike ,a Wojo burger is a burger from a family owned restraunt (Wojo's) in one of the extreme far southwest corners of Chicago,more famous for it's hot dogs really but their burgers are flame broiled and are yummy!
I'm in for the DIS meet!

We're sure going to try to upgrade at the port. (I'm mem22's DW Laura) I could kick myself for not doing it on my last cruise when I was one of the first two people to check in. I've priced out what the difference is between cat 5 and cat 4 ($260 actually, not that much) so this time I'll be prepared.
I'm pretty sure they won't let you upgrade before then but if anyone hears different let me know!
Happy Daylight Savings Time
