HI everyone, I just changed to this cruise from the Nov 3rd cruise and am little sad about it. Not only do I have to wait an extra month to go on the ship I had really made some great friends over on the other discussion board and our bi-weekly chat rooms. We had to move cruises because DH started a new job which he is really excited about but doesn't get leave until he has been there for 6 months, the 6 months is Nov 18th. Oh well we do what we have to for the ones we love.

On a bright note for us we paid an extra $50 and got a CAT7A GTY which was an upgrade (kinda) from our CAT 8D. While I would rather have my Cat 8D which I picked out over a year ago, DH loves him a veranda so he will be happy I will be happy. We are super excited about the christmas decoration being up, last time we were on the Magic the week they were finishing them so DH didn't get to see the finished ginger bread house, so he can't wait to see this one.

This will be my 5th cruise with DCL, once DH and I finish a weekender out of NYC which we are going on to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary.

I sent a request for the Facebook page name- Rosie

Sailing with me will be DH Olivier and DD Cindy 14

I'm pretty excited to be able to walk up to the MK turnstiles!
We own at BLT and love love love it I am super jealous because we booked so late we could only get AKV the day after the cruise and SSR the day before. BWV was still available but I didnt want to stay there. I am waitlisted at BLT before the cruise and VWL after the cruise keeping my fingers crossed.

We also own at Grand Cal which we are staying at in Oct when we go for my brothers wedding yeah 1st time at Grand Cal

My DD said.last year on the Dream they let them chose some stuff so its not set in stone.

Also she will be 14 and has informed me since she can she will be going to the edge over the vibe cause its more fun in her opionion.

I am so looking forward to PR on this trip as we have not been there. We own DVC as well and I called the first day the 7 month window opened and we could have stayed at OKW (where we own) I had hoped for VWL but there was no availability so we ended up at Kadani - no BCV or BLT available even that morning. Oh well, we have never stayed at AKL so we are looking forward to that.

Wahoo - 27 weeks from today we will be in Florida heading to breakfast somewhere.

We chose AKV Jambo for before the cruise and VWL for after the cruise. We LOVE the Christmas decorations at both of them.

Yay! My niece Haley will be coming with us. She will also be 14, almost 15, on our cruise date and has never cruised before.

Silly me, you can tell I'm not a mom and didn't even think about kids younger than 13 not having a Facebook account. I started the thread linked above instead in case kids going on this cruise want to have their own discussions to meet each other in advance. Of course, they will either have to have their own DIS account or post under their parent's account. I'm not even sure if there is an age limit here on the DIS.
I was trying to get a thread started for the kids to meet each other before the cuise (see above.) For sure Haley would be interested in talking to Cindy before the cruise and picking her brain on what there is to do in the clubs.

From another forum, a picture of the Dream with stateroom numbers! I know it isn't the Fantasy, but the numbering should be the same. Very cool to look at the ship and see exactly where our 9588 is.

DD said that she would love to chat with your niece, Cindy has been on 2 cruises with DCL so she knows pretty well the way it works. Instead of doing a thread for them maybe we could set up a chat room and then have a couple of chats set up for the kids that we can monitor.


Would anyone be intrested in particpating in a chat room session?

I can set it up and it would be a good way to get to know everyone.

I wouldn't have a clue how to set up a chat and timing may be a problem to get kids there at the same time. I know Haley is pretty well booked with soccer and other after school activities so that I rarely seem to get to talk to her myself!

I'm going to PM Haley's email address to you for your daughter. That's probably the easist way to at least get the two of them together.

we were on the dream last summer & in the "tween" club, the cast members & kids came up with their own "cruise activity" schedule each day & wrote it up on a huge white dry erase board so the kids could come in & see what was going to happen that day or the next....
