10/27 2012 A little Halloween MAGIC!

Anyone else sailing out of Galveston on the Magic for October 2012 ? 10/27/12 7 day cruise. It will be our first cruise on Disney we are excited. Our kiddos at cruising will be 3 4 4 6 and 17. Our oldest DD is more than likely not going to be with us she is enlisting in the Navy soon We are also pretty excited about no flights just a drive! Well the people paying for it (hubby and myself) are lol.

I think we are going to be on this cruise as well Right now there are 4 of us in 2 staterooms as my Mum and sister are going to be with DH and I. It will be our 4th Disney cruise, their 1st.

I debated these dates just because the price went up a little (I guess for Halloween) over the previous few weeks..but sailing over Halloween was just too good to pass up!

It's going to be SO wonderful to not have to pack and fly!! We are just northwest of Houston, so nice and close!

Oh yah! So excited another diser will be there too! I think cruising on Halloween is going to be fab! It is my favorite holiday! We still have about a 5 hour drive in but I think it will be well worth the trip!!
I did not know the prices went up! Our nephew and his wife have talked about going I guess I need to tell them to get in gear and book!

I don't think I was clear about the prices. The prices for our cruise haven't gone up (that I know of) but the prices for the 10/27 sailing are slightly higher than the couple of weeks before.

It will be interesting to see if these cruises out of Galveston are popular. We have a lot of friends that were REALLY excited about Disney sailing so close to home, but the dates and prices (compared to others sailing similar itineraries) have most of them deciding against it.

What's the weather like during that time of year? Do we need to worry about storms? We're cruising this Halloween out of Los Angeles, CA on the Disneny Wonder and if all goes well, we would like to book this cruise next.

Well, this is still in hurricane season, although toward the end of it, and of course there's always that chance when you are doing a cruise in the Gulf.

Other than the chance of that - the weather should be great. Highs in the 80's lows in the low 70s.

Oh ok I didn't realize there were cheaper weeks. I probably would have done it because I am super de duper cheap It is cheaper to sail other lines but it's just for different interests I guess.
I am not that worried about sailing during hurricane season because the captain will reroute if needed. We may end up not going to cozumel and end up in Jamaica but I am ok with that too

It isn't a ton, but I think it was a couple of hundred cheaper - at least for the category that we looked at.

I wouldn't really mind missing one of the Mexico ports either, but I'd hate to miss Grand Cayman as it's the one stop my Mum (who will be 84 when we sail) would like to see. However it works out, we'll be on a Disney cruise...and it doesn't matter WHERE we are!

It sounds like this cruise would be worth taking a chance on. How can you go wrong with Disney?

Absolutely IMO there's no such thing as a bad Disney cruise. Someone else makes my bed, cleans the room, cooks my food, does the dishes AND will bring me a drink! I could probably never leave Galveston and STILL enjoy it.

I am currently booked on this cruise with my sister's family also, but will be re-shopping on-board my November 2011 Dream cruise. If the price for this sailing has gone up too much, we will have to pick another week to go.

While I am excited about spending Halloween on-board, the following week is my birthday, so that would be great too!

One way or another I will be sailing the Magic out of Galveston!!

Hi Hope that you manage to get a good deal when you are onboard. We reshopped when we were onboard the Dream in July and the price hadn't changed We got the OBC and the discount To be honest, I'm not super-thrilled about the itinerary, but I wasn't about to miss being able to sail out of Galveston.

Should I book now or is it better to wait till we sail in a few months?

It's hard to say. I booked the first day that they announced the new itinerary and when we sailed the prices hadn't changed, or if they had it was only by a few dollars. I would doubt that the prices would go up by more than the 10% that you will save by booking onboard, but there aren't any guarantees. It's really up to you. I booked, paid the full deposit etc, and then reshopped it onboard and rebooked it paying a new deposit etc. DCL refunded the deposit on my initial reservation and I was able to get the exact same staterooms.
