Welcome aboard Kim!!! Great to have your family joining the cruise. Is your hubby serving overseas? How exciting that you'll have your birthday on the cruise!!! Should be a great time.

Yes he is in Afghanistan. He did 6 months learning Dari in DC and then has his 12 month deployment. Thus a long 18 months away.

Wow, that is a long time for you and the kids. Hope his time away is uneventful (as hard as that is at times over there). Prayers for his safe return. What a wonderful trip to be planning.

I would be a sad, sad girl with no strawberries or coconut.
Whew....I out that in so folks would look at the list - I would really hate to think you or family had ANY kind of reaction....sick onboard = no fun

Planning for this will give us a nice reprieve from waitjng for DH to come home. He has been gone ten months and we have 8 more to go. Yuck.
I sent a request for the FB group and PM'd our FE info.

Psyched! Especially since June 10th is my 45th birthday!
Kim - I have added you to the list! You should see the update next month!

oh my...."my crew"

oh they would laugh and laugh...I am the new kid in the group! Most of them have been sailing since the first ship was launched. I am a newbie - only been sailing since 2001. That being said - I haven't done a comparison of the FE lists to find out - I can say I know of 3 people for sure! Michael, Cathy and I...I think that there are a few others....

anyone care to join in on who is B2B???

I have been a quite a few B2B cruises (and one B2B2B)...they are a lot of fun.

Joining the Fish Extendedr exchange

Just an updated post -

If you wish to participate in the FE exchange - then please send me a PM with the following information:

in the subject line please put the name of the cruise (I am managing 3 lists for 3 different NYC cruises, so I have to know which one you will be particapting with)

Your Dis Name:
Your real world name:
Who is sailing with you: please include the ages of children
any special instructions: allergies, limitations etc

If you would like me to email you the list in Excel format - include your email address. I will post updates monthly until the final payment date, then I will try to update the google doc page with every addition.

Please also tell me your thoughts on when to close the list - the choices are 30 days or 60 days. If the group gets too large (we need to define that as well at some point) do you want it broken into sections? If so, how many cabins in each group?

I will be starting school again just after Labor Day, and may not be able to update the list as often as I would like - if I do NOT answer your PM within a week - please resend it...I may loose it in the sauce of my online course emails. I do have sorts set up in Outlook - but one does miss things occosionly.

Thanks for you help and I am looking forward to meeting everyone!

Cayla

I actually looked at the 2 nighter to nowhere for our points, but realized it was way to many for just that. (i'll bank them for a big villa the next year).

NYC Information

Was browsing the boards... Felt this needed sharing for those of you who are looking to extend your trips in NYC. Someone has taken plenty of time to organize all this information.

Good question. That would be really nice, but I doubt it would be included in a national plan. You'd probably have to contact your wireless provider to find out what to do. If you find out, let us know.

Hi, I'm Karen and I'll be joining you all and doing the b2b with my cruisin' buddies Gail and Gayle. SheaBear thanks for the NYC DISlink. Just the info I've started looking for for this trip. I too live in NJ and am happy not to be flying for this trip. This will be my 9th and 10th DCL cruise. Just got back from Alaska where I re-booked this cruise for the savings. Gail is on #6 and Gayle is #11.

I have to think about doing the FE. I have always resisted doing it because of flying and luggage space. Now I don't have that excuse

I've never joined fb so what happens there that doesn't happen here?

Hope to meet you all and will continue getting to know you on this thread.
Karen

Welcome aboard Karen. We just got off the Dream and home early yesterday, so I missed the newest addition to our group. If you haven't stopped by the facebook page, come on over.

The FE gift exchange is a lot of fun, but we had people in our 'group' who didn't participate in that, and it was no different. We all belong here and the facebook group, with or without FE.

This will be our first cruise on the Magic and being from Delaware, we too are excited about not having to fly.
