That is why we are doing the December cruise. Want to see decorations. We did WDW with good friends in December 2010 and loved the decorations there so we thought we would try the cruise.

Was the magice decorated for Christmas when you were on.

Yes it was decorated. According to the CM on board Decoration go up on November 7th. We got to see them make a giant Gingerbread house within the 7 days we were on board.

Booked this cruise while on our B2B last week. Looking forward to it.

Never got the chance to meet anyone from those cruises, hope this wont happen on this one.

I requested the facebook page also.

MoranClan! Sorry your B2B is over - it is so hard when any cruise is over. But, we can keep each other company while we wait for this trip.

Just back from the Amish grocery and the meat market out in the local farm country. They have the best bacon - I am thinking it will be pancakes and bacon for dinner tonight - and maybe an early dinner at that. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Not much else to report. Just about done with the holiday shopping - one more day out and about and I will be finished. Considering a trip to Ohio to see the folks but that is very dependent on the weather - won't make up my mind until the end of the week.

Enjoy!!

to the Group. B2B must have been a blast. You get to stay on the ship when there is hardly any one on it.

I love having breakfast for dinner. Now that I am reading this we may have to do tonight.

We just booked this itinerary while on the Wonder MR last week. We had an amazing time and were blessed with an incredible sprinkling of pixie dust. Can't wait to be back onboard DCL.

Ditto! We were also on the Wonder MR Dec 4-11 and booked this cruise. Our only contingency is whether we can get a good price on airfare since we have to fly from the West coast. If that doesn't happen, we may move our booking but I'd sure like to see the Fantasy in Dec 2012.

I love seeing the Christmas decor which is why I like to sail in December, but I'm wondering what the weather will be like in the Caribbean in December? Will it be warm enough to enjoy Castaway Cay since it is further north?

Juney and family! Glad you had a great time last week! I can't think of much that beats sailing on DCL.

Moby and family. We should be fine at Castaway Cay - but with Mother Nature, you never know. We have been there in September, October, November, December and February and the February trip was the only one that I really remember as being chilly but that was because it was only in the 70's and breezy. The water may be cooler but since I am from way up north, that doesn't make much difference to me.

Everyone ready for the holiday? I have to wrap/bag everything but I get that going tonight. I should also do a bit of baking - or not as my hips certainly do not need any sweets!

Decided we loved cruising with mareeld86 on the Western Caribbean last week and booked this cruise too! I'm already counting down the days... which is helping with the cruise withdrawals!

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!

aboard!!!! We are looking forward to this cruise. Can't wait to see the Christmas decorations on the ship and at Castaway Cay.

This will be our 8th Disney cruise. We've done Disney cruises in September, January, February and March. When we were at Castaway Cay in January and February, the water was cooler but it didn't stop us from enjoying it.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Thanks Glindamood! My hips don't need any more sweets either especially since I just got off the MR cruise a week ago!

Thanks Monika! : I just read a trip report on Eastern Caribbean (EC) and sounds like the weather in early Dec was not good so wondered if we should book a different month as I know my dd will want to get into the water.
