O.k. we are booked. Looking at airfare, it is going to be a pricey cruise.

I am Dawn and my daughter is 13. We are excited about traveling in Europe on Disney. I just booked this cruise while sailing on the Wonder.

I need to go back and read all the older posts.

It's exciting to have more disboard memebers.

Dawn - What current incentives were offered to book on-board?

Thanks
Jeff

Welcome everyone new!

We are planning on flying out of Atlanta. It is a 4 hour drive from here but has the cheapest airfare so far and is the closest place for us to get a direct flight. I would really like for my luggage to actually make it to Barcelona and fear connecting flights.
1o more months to go!

They offered 20% off Platinum discount and onboard credit. No where does it state the amount I was told. I am trusting the guy that booked it onboard for me. We are doing a back to back on this cruise.

Can't wait to start looking at airfares and hotels pre cruise. So far, everything seems quite expensive.

Jet Lag

I'm hearing that traveling over on the same day as embarkation is not the best because of jet lag. Suggestions vary from arriving one (1) up to even three (3) days ahead to reset the body clock.

Your thoughts on this?

Also, where have people stayed and do you recommend?

Thanks

I think it depends whether or not you are used to traveling long distances or not. Last time we went over one day ahead and it was not early enough. Not enough time to see what we wanted to see and not enough time to get over the jet lag. I would not wait until the day to get there for ne it is cutting it to close and too many things can go wrong. Last time we stayed at the Grand Marina which was very nice this time we are staying at the Hilton becasue all 3 of us can stay in one room.

Been watching airfare very closely especially the direct flight out of Atlanta on Delta just waiting for the price to drop. Found a really good deal on expedia $600 a person one catch though you change planes and airlines seven times. It's a world tour just to get there and if you fly with your luggage it's not going to make it. At that price though I'm tempted to ship the luggage and pray we make every connection.

That would make for a long flight. How many hours travelling?

We stayed at the Rennaisance near the Airport. It was nice. We took their shuttle back to the airport and the Disney shuttle to the cruise the day of. Jetlag is an issue - especially for kids. I'd try and go at least two days ahead of the cruise. I think we're going to do three this time. Barcelona has a great Hop-on-Hop-off bus tour.

It had you leaving early on the 5th and arriving late afternoon on the 6th I think a total of 26 hours of travel. That is what makes it not worth it it would take the 3 days in Barcelona just to recover from the flight.

We loved the hop on hop off bus last time it was so easy to figure out and you can buy tickets for it before you go.

Love the editions to the website.
