Dreaming for the Fantasy

We are currently on the Dream doing a back to back 11/6-11/10. Used our vacation points and booked the 12/1/12 Eastern trip on the Fantasy. Looking forward to joining this group. We are from Bel Air, Maryland. Just a side note: The Dream is awesome and looks fantastic all decorated for Christmas. Between the time we got off the ship and back on (about an hour) they had pretty well transformed the ship.

aboard. We were on the Dream in September. She is a beautiful ship. Hope you will share some pictures.

Small world...you live in Bel Air...our son and his family lives in Bel Air. We live near Rehoboth Beach in Delaware...before moving to Delaware, we lived in Carney.

Looking forward to chatting and meeting you.



Have a good day and a great weekend. Take care.....

We too just got off the dream. First time we cruised without having the place decked out for Christmas. I will say however that we DID notice the decorations going up daily on the ship. It was amazing to see the gingerbread house going up from plain old plywood to fully decked out gingerbread by the time we disembarked. They still had to "decorate" the gingerbread when we were getting off, but it had come a long way. The poinsettas were going up every where as well. Made me remeber that I had to get home and get decorating. Oh, but Thanksgiving comes first. LOL.

We had a great time on the Dream. Couple of things we noticed, 1. the size compared to Magic and Wonder made you get disoriented a whole lot easier; and 2. 4 days is definitely not long enough. We won't be doing a short one again if we can help ourselves. We had just gotten such a great deal on this one that we went ahead and did it.

Now, beginning the countdown towards this cruise.....while recovering from the one we just finished. And sadly yes, there is no one to make my bed, change my towels, cook my dinners or do my dishes. Sort of makes me want to cry......

Thanks for the welcome. We are sitting in a hotel today waiting for our flight back to Baltimore tomorrow morning. It was actually cheaper to stay over for a night then to fly right out. We are doing laundry and catching up~However it was so sad to get off the ship after a week. We loved the Dream and are looking forward to the Fantasy.

Sent in a request to join the FB group.

We are Chuck (MickeyBeast)- age 53 and wife Karen (50)- live in Bel Air, Md. Total Disney nuts and this coming cruise will be our Platinum. Looking forward to seeing how this community grows here and on FB.

Got that last suitcase undone - and the hamper that was only half full is now overflowing again so I guess I know what is on my agenda after a quick trip to the grocery store. Ugly looking out - windy, gray but it is only 55 so I guess that is better than some other alternatives. Gonna be a long winter.

Have a great day!

Hi everyone!

We just returned on Thursday from the Dream. A 4 day cruise is WAY too short for us, so we booked Dec 1st, 2012 on the Fantasy!

We would love to join the FE group also.

I send a request to join the fb page. We had a fb group for the last cruise and it was a great way to make friends and get to know fellow cruisers!

Thanks! The only thing holding us back is wanting to see Christmas decorations. 1/12 cruise is about $450 less.
