We will definitely participate in the FE. Although, if we get a huge response, I would suggest we split it up. On my previous cruise, I had more than 30 cabins to visit and with an average of 4 people per cabin... that was more than 120 gifts. It was too much and everyone's FE was overflowing with stuff. I found myself leaving our gifts at their doorstep because there wasn't any room in the FE. Plus it took me hours to deliver them since I could only carry so much and had to keep going back to our cabin to reload. Great workout! I love the idea of the adult exchange!

Looking forward to getting to know you all better. Love the DIS!!
Welcome and the more the merrier!! We are all just passing time until December 28th!

Hello everyone! I booked this cruise for my family on New Year's Eve 2011! We've never traveled over the holiday before (preferring, generally, to stay home) so this will be a first for us. We've cruised quite a bit - this sailing on the Dream will be our 10th - 2nd with DCL. My kids will turn 12 and 13 this Summer and are already counting the days! Look forward to getting to know you all!

Hi fellow crusiers! I have my deposit paid, this is my 2nd cruise with the same intinery. It will be me and DH, his first cruise. I am so excited but he is a little leary about leaving during the holidays but I WILL convince him that it will be worth it.

Wish I had better news, but it looks like I'll be cancelling this cruise. We're having some cutbacks at work, and it looks like I won't be able to take off during the holidays since nobody will be available to cover for me like I'd hoped. Plus I can't convince any of my family members to go with me, and that single supplement is nuts.

Wishing you all the best! Have a great time! And don't worry about me, I have another cruise booked for this summer when the timing is better.

Thanks! I'm doing one of the 8-night Bahamian cruises out of NY with a stop at WDW. So at least I still get one day at CC!

Have fun! I'll be thinking of you guys when I'm sitting here in the cold and snow in December!

Cruise critic and FE event

Just had a post on CC referring here taken down with the explanation "This site is a business so referring to competitors is against the rules.
My daughters will be on this cruise and will more than likely take part in the FE event if the number of participants is not too large. So if the numbers get over a dozen or so, I would like to suggest splitting into several groups for those that don't mind the larger numbers they could take part in several groups.

I just finished reading a huge thread on FE gifts and got tons of ideas!! So looking forward to this cruise. We did a NY cruise on the Magic in 2009...it was so much fun. Disney knows how to celebrate...there was a countdown on the big screen, fireworks & free champagne at midnight We also cruised Alaska on the wonder last summer -- so amazing. We were on the Dream last Christmas but it was too short and not really enough time to get to know the ship, however we did ride the Aquaduck several times-- it was a blast! We will be on the Fantasy July 2013 and looking forward to that one also!!
