Gail is on #6 and Gayle is #11.
Karen, Where in South Jersey are you from? I am in the Ocean City area.

How was the Dream? I haven't cruised on it yet. I've been on the Magic and Wonder and loved them both! For those of you who haven't cruised the Magic, it's fabulous. We cruised on it 7 years ago and we had a "Magical" trip. I didn't realize how long ago that was! I can't wait to sail on DCL again.

Welcome to all the new cruisers who just joined this thread. We also will drive to the port as we are from CT. We sailed out of NY three times and it was so nice to avoid the airport mess!

If you have any specific questions, ask away. Lisa who is on this group was also on the Dream.

Now, I'm counting down to our Magical cruise to Canada in June!

Thanks for the welcome!
SheaBear, I'm from the other side of the state a couple miles east of Philly.
Just checked out the NYC parking website. Glad I did it now so I can adjust to $30 a day parking. Not surprising for a big city but I'm use to airport parking rates. The NYC info thread is a big help. Thanks again for the posting.

Ok aye, now that our "Dream Weaver" cruise is over it's time to concentrate on the "Canuk" cruise. In case you don't know what a "Canuk" is, it's just another name for a Canadian. By the way, were are we sailing to? St. Johns and Halifax? I want to research our destination to get some history. It was nice to really meet Lisa and Pete on our cruise. I look forward to seeing them again along with every body on this cruise. Aye.

I know this is off topic, but I'm so excited! I just booked OKW for 6 days in March for a girls only trip with DD! I had DVC points that were going to expire at the end of March. We decided to vacation at WDW. We haven't been there in 5 years and we miss it!

I know what you mean! This is the longest we've waited between trips to WDW. I guess we've been busy with other things like kids in college, our son's wedding in NM and giving my son and daughter-in-law our DVC points for a honeymoon to Argentina! Oh, and we celebrated our 30th anniversary in Hawaii last year! Now I have 2 trips to look forward to, as well as my DIL's graduation from law school in IL in between!

Well you certainly have a lot going on! How generous of you to 'give' your son and dil points for their honeymoon. That is a fabulous idea.

I thought that would be something special for them from us. They had a fabulous trip. I will also do that for my daughter when she gets married.

We have been really busy, but it's so much fun. I love to travel! We use our DVC points to transfer all the time. Hawaii was through DVC. Unfortunately, the new resort wasn't completed yet, but we went to see it under construction.

Just a thought...you might seriously consider parking in NJ and taking a car into the port - what you save in parking would pay for the car, and then you don't have to worry about the safety of the car. I am pretty sure there are long term lots in Fort Lee, NJ and the ride to the port from there shouldn't be too high...

just a thought.

I am having a friend drop me off, since I live about 5 miles from the George Washington Bridge - oh BTW the toll to the GWB is now 12.00

be sure to factor that in to your costs....

any new FE folks???


if so PM me with:

Dis Name
Real Name
cabin
who is sailing with you
any restrictions such as allergies etc

please put the cruise name in the subject line, I am managing 3 FE lists at the same time and it gets a little wild trying to figure out where folks belong.

I will post a new link to the google doc on Thursday
