We did Western Carib two years ago the 2nd week of December. Our experience was a little different on Castaway Cay. The temp should have been great, but weather shifted, we had to leave the island early and there were two twisters off the port side of the ship while we were trying to leave. The seas were HORRIBLE that night. One of our servers had been on the ship for 4 years and he said he had never seen the seas so high. All access to outside decks was shut down. It was crazy.

Good morning! Can't believe it is almost Christmas and 2012! But, guess that brings us closer to our cruise. I have something up my
sleeve for DH's birthday in September so I don't have to wait quite so long - but long enough!

Have a great day!

can't wait

I learned so many do's and don'ts from our first Cruise in November 2011 I can't wait to apply them all. Biggest one was to book early! I can't believe the price difference and cabin availability within 2 months! Saved about $1500 booking early!

Can't wait until our next cruise!

I used point but I keep checking the prices. Just to see the cash cost has gone up and up. It does pay to book early. Great saving for you.

I posted this on Facebook the other day and I should have posted it here.
I did not realize that there was so many differences in the Fantasy and Dream.

Can't believe we are less then a year away from sailing!!! I love the holiday decorations in December but don't love the cold water at Castaway Cay in December. This is our 3rd Disney cruise. It's a 90th birthday celebration for my Grandmother! Sailing will be myself, DH, Samantha (12), Alyia (11), brother, SIL, 3 nephews (11,11 1/2 and 9), my mom, Grandmother and Great Aunt! Is anyone doing Fish extenders? My kids had fun finding little surprises through out the day. Happy Holidays everyone!!

To the group. This will be our 7th cruise. I am just looking forward to warmer weather then here. I am from the northwest burbs of Chicago.

We will have to wait till next year for the bears.

Once we get the calendar flipped over I will begin the weekly countdown but not yet. I actually was on CC once in November and that was the chilliest I remember. I don't generally get in the water but it was pretty windy. This will be #15 for us - don't care how many times I go or how long I stay on the ship - i want to go back before I ever finish unpacking!
