I just checked the cruise and there are still rooms available starting at cat. 11. On another note, do you think that the water will be warm enough to snorkle at Castaway Cay? I was really hoping my granddaughter would be able to snorkle and if not, may change to a warmer time of year.

Count us in!

Hi everyone!

Just signed on for this cruise and we can hardly wait! We weren't planning on taking a cruise but could not resist the Kids Sail Free promotion.

Please include us in the Fish Extenders group! We did it on the Magic last year and loved it! I will send you a PM, Tammy - thanks so much for organizing this.

Can't wait to meet everyone!

I've read mixed reviews. People from the south say it was cold (mid 70s) but coming from the ice and snow that sounds pretty good to me.

I'm from Chicago so mid-70s air temp is ok with me especially with sun. That time of year for us it is in the teens and more often than not, without sun and a lot of wind. Chilly!!! What I am wondering is how cold is the water? I would keep checking the airfares because they always have good sales. I'm watching SW and waiting for them to go below $89pp one way until I book. In April of this year I got fares as low as $59pp one way.

Right now it's going to be about 700.00 for us one way , we planned on driving back home. I was also hoping they would get a little cheaper...below 100.00pp would be really nice SW just had a sale but it was for travel dates up to jan i think.

Mine are booked - not exact flight times I wanted - would have preferred earlier on Saturday2/27, but oh well and then we are flying home at 8:20pm on Sunday 3/7. We paid about $169.00 pp rt from BWI.

I am checking SW religiously. We are also usually spoiled by less than $100 each way but we still have lots of time.

In the summer the lake water at our cottage is usually low 70s so I have no doubt DS will be in the ocean on CC.

Hello everyone! I haven't gone back to read the older posts yet...eyes are getting blurry at this late hour!

I'm excited to meet some of the people we'll be cruising with. Please add us to the fish exchange group, if there is room. I will send a PM to you, Tammy.

On the cruise, it will be myself, my husband, and our children, ages 8, 5, 34 months, and 7 months at the time of sailing. This is our second DCL cruise and we can't wait!

I'll catch up on the other posts tomorrow.

Thank you! I will email you the cabin numbers later today. Since we have four children, we had to book two rooms, or go with the suites...would be nice, but way out of our price range!

Rachael is such a joy and blessing to our family. After our little girl died last year, we appreciate our blessings so much more!

YES! We'll be at WDW Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights after the cruise, flying home Sunday morning early. I haven't yet made our reservations or ADRs yet. Flying by the seat of my pants I guess! I'll make them soon though.
