My family is on this cruise

We are booked in joining rooms 8000/8002. So far, Myself, wife, son, 17, son, 14 and daughter 12. We are going to offer to take my mother-in-law along as well. Find out about that tomorrow. We are not real big with the meetings and such, but I love to look forward to the cruise with folks and get to know my fellow shipmates. Possible participant in a FE as well. Not sure on that just because of space.

Scott

Hi All, We (DH, DS, DD and me) booked this cruise while on the Dream at the end of March. Hoping to keep the date and not "float" it somewhere else. This will be our 4th Disney cruise--one each on the Magic, Wonder, Dream and now the Fantasy. At the time of the sailing DS will be 15 and DD will be 10. December 2012 seems like a long time away--we've got two trips booked to WDW (August and December 2011) and hopefully a spring break at Disneyland before this cruise happens! For now, it's fun to think about--even though it's 538 days away!

Has anyone checked our cruise price recently? HOLY COW! We booked while onboard this past March and the cruise price has gone up....$3,000!! I am thinking though it is because this is the next to the last cruise you can book right now and I'm betting a lot of people have booked it as a 'dummy cruise'. I read somewhere on this forum that a person has a Christmas cruise booked for this year and they've already been offered Kids Sail Free this far out... Would be SO cool if that is the case next year! I did find out today though that apparently, because my son will be over the age of 10 by this sailing that he gets charged as an adult??? (Which is weird because when you're filling out the 'search for a cruise' form on the DCL website, they ask #of adults and #of children, then have in parentheses (0-17). Why don't they just ask 0-10 if that's the case? Anyhoo...hubby is military so right now we don't even know where we'll be living by that time!

Still hoping we get to keep this one and don't have to move it. So many things can change between now and then...

**Edited to add: I just read some other info regarding kids' pricing, etc....I mistakenly entered one adult only and two kids...Rooms are charged for two adults regardless and then 3rd, 4th passenger charged accordingly thereafter...so NEVER MIND..LOL!

Hi everyone! We just booked this cruise and already are looking forward to Christmas in the Western Carribean! It will be 4 of us ... DH, me, and kids (DS 14 and DD 10, ages at cruise time ). This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Welcome to everyone who has joined this thread in the past couple of months! It seems to be slow moving for a Christmas cruise.

We are looking forward to our first Christmas away from home. We asked our boys if they would rather cruise for Christmas or change our plans and visit WDW and all of them agreed to keep the cruise!!

Before I read your "edited to add" section, I checked out the prices. Our cruise price for this cruise has gone up by approximately $2,900 since we first booked this back in February.

However, if you want to see obscene prices, look at the June 2012 Fantasy cruises. We are also booked on a 7-night June cruise and are thankful we booked early. The price of our cruise has more than doubled!!! (136% more to be exact) Equivalent rooms in June compared to this Christmas cruise are more. The exact same rooms we have on this Christmas cruise are $2,200 more in June. I always thought Christmas was higher priced, but not now. Perhaps as it gets closer, we'll see prices on this cruise sky rocket even further.

Regardless, by booking early we saved a lot on our two 2012 cruises (nearly $8,100 for our June cruise and $2,900 for this cruise). That's enough to pay for two more cruises for our family of 5 unless Disney keeps raising Day 1 prices!

Fantasy 12/22/12

My family will be on this cruise. I have twin boys who will be 15 at cruise time. We will be with extended family and girl cousins, 17, 15, 13 at time of cruising.
This is our second Disney cruise. We sailed Magic in December 2007 the week before Christmas to the Western Carribbean. Looking forward to going back!

We just got off the Christmas Cruise on the Dream and absolutely loved it. We decided to book the 2012 Christmas Cruise on the Fantasy on our cruise. We can't wait...

Surprised to see this thread still rather short but please add one more family to this sailing. I just transferred an April trip on the Fantasy to this Christmas event instead. We are a family of 3. DS will be 14.
