Getting our Passports

Great to hear we have someone on board that has a recent experience on the Dream. bmer1rick, so do you have children or was it an adults event? What deck were you on? We are on deck 7 a category 4C I think it is. I know I won't be in my room much but I sure hope the lifeboats don't block too much of the view!

Was the entertainment for Christmas any different than during the normal cruise or was the decorations and special dinner pretty much it? I don't care really... I'm just glad I'll be on the boat. YEAH

Very very excited...

ME TOO! So Excited!

Hi Everyone! I am going to be on this cruise too. I am a single mom with two sons who will be 8 and 9 years old for their first ever cruise. This will be my first cruise where I am not working. I was in the Navy for 12 years, so I have plenty of sea time under my belt, but none when I can just relax and enjoy. We have booked a family stateroom (8C) on deck 7. I am literally counting the days.

It has always been my dream to get underway and just relax. I chose DCL so that I could bring my boys and be sure they will have fun too. I hope to see lots of activity on here in the next 337 days.

Hi! I will also be on this cruise with my mom. It's going to be our very first cruise. I'm so excited, I can't believe it's only in 11 months!

Welcome!

So glad to see a few additions as I was getting a tad sad with the low traffic. I thought we'd see a little more with this being the first Christmas cruise for the Fantasy. But like you said, I'm sure we'll get more closer to the date.

Jessika I'm on yor same deck. A Cat 4C if I recall

Wow, I like the sound of that. "The first Christmas on the Fantasy". Mankind is funny, we can find a first for anything. All I know is that it made me happy.

Fantasy Christmas!!

I like it too! EGHopeful!! I was getting so very sad becuase a lot of these threads seem to be super busy but ours is slow. I see you are a single mom travelling with your child too. She is even close in age to my boys. My boys will be 8-9 for the trip. Good to know I won't be the only one.

My son will be 8 when we sail and I will be traveling solo with him. Looks like he will have plenty of boys his age to make friends with and I will have a few moms to chat with!

Allright, McPackers! We are definitely going to run into each other, and EGHopeful. I hope we get to know each other over the next 11 months and then we'll be like old friends come sail time!

We booked this cruise onboard our Alaska cruise last July as a dummy date. I think we are just going to keep this as the 2013 itineraries did not work well with our calendar. Cruising will be me, Patty, my husband, Mike and our two girls, ages 11 and 8. This will be our 6th Disney cruise.

We are about an hour away near Long Beach Island. Our oldest daughter will be 11 at the time of the cruise. Just booked Saratoga springs for the night before. Hoping to get a decent price on a flight Friday afternoon.
