Thanks Barry - looking forward to meeting everyone as well! Maggie will be excited. She had a great time making friends on the last cruise and I think having more time will only increase that. She has already told us she is planning on being in the pool and kids club the entire time

We're excited here too! Can't wait! I'm leaving on Tuesday for Cambodia and then Feb 1 for MK so we're a bit preoccupied with other trips to really focus on something more than 10 months away.
Looking forward to sunning ourselves on deck with DK's spend time in the camps.
RELAX TIME!!!

I know we can hardly wait. It feels like forever until it will get here, but the way this year went, it will be here before we know it.

Now that the "business" for Christmas is over, I'm thinking of our cruise in Nov. This will be our first cruise!

Huh? Did we go back in time???? Gee that makes our cruise 2 years away then! Not 10 months!
BUT, I'm making the assumption you meant 2012, and that we're almost at that 'pregnant' stage that DW calls it where we will be 9 months away! I'll get these next 2 trips looked after and then really focus on November's fun.

Who's all been to Grand Cayman before? Any insights?

Yes I meant 2012 and fixed it. It just goes along with the day we had today

We haven't been there, but have friends and family that have. They say the snorkeling is amazing.

Hi to everyone who has booked this cruise! I posted early, but I'll sort of reintroduce us. We're traveling with a party of 6, my mom and step-father, me and my husband, and our two children, who'll be almost 2 and 7 at the time of the sailing. (We're sharing a large cabin, and I'm really interested in seeing how that will work...)

I love the idea of doing a fish extender exchange, so count us in! We've never sailed with DCL before, but I've read about the exchanges, and thought they sounded like a lot of fun.

We cruise a fair amount, and we've been to Grand Cayman several times. It's one of our favorite ports to do with (in our case, young) children. The ocean life is beautiful. We've done glass bottom boat, semi-submersible, private submarine, and snorkeling, so we've been able to enjoy the sea life even when we had non swimmers in our party. No, it's not the absolute best in the Caribbean, but it's very, very good. (Oh, and for the record, we liked the glass bottom boat least, but enjoyed all the different ways of exploring the reefs and seeing the sights under the sea.)

The most famous thing to do is probably Stingray City (swim with and pet wild stingrays!), and we absolutely loved the Turtle Farm as an activity with young children. Our son got to pet turtles, which was a highlight for him, and we got to hold some turtles, which made for some great memories and photo ops. It's very touristy, but we thought it was completely worth it.

We're not sure exactly what we're going to do this trip. The baby can't go out to Stingray City on the cruise sponsored excursions, and when traveling with a child that young, I prefer to do cruise sponsored excursions so the ship will wait for us if the tour runs long. We may do it anyway, just book independently, or we may just go to the turtle farm for the afternoon. Our son absolutely adored the turtle farm when he was about the age she'll be then, so we know we need to include it on this trip somehow. (He also wants to go back, since he doesn't remember it too well, but loves looking at the pictures of himself there.)

We're excited about the cruise, and really curious about what Disney will do to make it different from the other cruiselines we've tried. I sort of hope it isn't SO much better that it ruins us for all other lines ;-)

I know we are super excited. I have a few business trips and we have our summer place to look forward to, but I can't wait until November

Greetings from Cambodia guys! Weather's beautiful here, but DW and family are not with me .
We're flying to MCO in 2.5 weeks for a fix on MK, but really, really looking forward to November as well! Keep it up! We'll be there soon.
