MR 3/11 is the next cruise for us and then this cruise for 2013. Seems strange to be booking so far in advance, but I guess if you want a room that sleeps 4 you need to book the Fantasy that far in advance. (we leave my husband at home, but with the beds not splitting and not wanting to sleep with one of the girls I booked a room that sleeps 4)

Taking a solo cruise - can't wait
Solo cruises on DCL are amazing, which many people find hard to believe, but I did the Magic solo in August and I had a ball, and met so many other adults travelling without kids to.

We will have to meet up on the MR cruise. My DD will almost be 8. It would be great to get them together then with plans to see one another again in 2013.

I sent an email to the school district we'll be at during this time and I was told that MOST LIKELY Spring Break will be this week! But there is a chance it could be 2 weeks later due to Easter falling early that year. SO hope it is this week. If not, don't think we'll be getting in on the cruise 2 weeks later. It is the one that so many people got such a great deal on the first few hours (glitch according to a lot of posts) then it sky rocketed. I am so looking forward to sailing on the Fantasy during the kids birthdays. Just keeping my fingers crossed!

We are in the same boat (or at least hopefully, lol)! We booked this cruise w/o knowing our spring break dates yet either. We won't know until December or January, and by then prices may have gone up too much.

But, I really really want to go on the Fantasy! Second option is if the Magic or Wonder sail out of Galveston (we live in Texas) during that summer and offer affordable rates! I can't see spending more to sail out of our nearby port on an older ship than it would be to fly to Florida on a new ship that has much better ports.

Hoping I'm not jinxing us by posting here!

Fingers crossed here too!

I paid the deposit yesterday. I had it on a 5 day hold.

I think this is our spring break in 2013. I may jump ship if 1) it is not spring break or 2) the Magic or Wonder has itenaries that I can't say no to at dates/prices that I would want to travel in 2013.

Hi All,

we are booked on this cruise as well, but like a few others, it will depend on a few things. the first is going to be when our Spring Break falls..i looked at the school calendars for the past 5 years and tried to figure out the pattern..so hope I picked right. Also, we are in Houston, and we may be swayed by the Magic schedule..just depends on if the ships stays in Galveston til summer of 2013.

It is DS(15 at the time of the cruise) and me...we love cruising, and if we take what we have scheduled between now and then...this one will be our 7th Disney Cruise.


Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Leslie

Just booked two connecting Family OV (7514 & 7516) rooms for our family -- at embarkation they will be DS 18, DD 15, DD12, DD10.

I am not worried about Spring Break dates, this is the week our school district ALWAYS does spring break.

This will be the 3rd cruise for DH & DS, 4th for me and the girls.

Putting the date for booking excursions/spa on Google calendar so I don't miss it!

Looking forward to San Juan and Castaway Cay. Like St. Thomas too! Hopefully I will be able to get my oldest daughter off the ship, she loved the auquduck on the Dream and rode it almost 40 times on a 4 day cruise.
I will have 10 & 12yo girls on the cruise!

I thought I recognized your screen name! I just went back to the DisMeet thread for the 3/13/11 Dream cruise -- I guess we will be cruising together again!

Haha, it is looking like this is the week of the Canadians and Texans to cruise!!! I'm sure we will make a fun group!

(Houston here too ).

My sons will be 13 and 10. We didn't do the FE the last cruise, but I think we may try it this time. We'll be in 7602.

Another Houstonian here!

We are currently booked in 9176. This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. I think that even with the airfare savings the Magic (if it sales out of galveston) will definately have to undercut the Fantasy for the same week for me to change. My husband really wants to try out the AquaDuck.

We will be sailing with an almost 7 year old (she will turn 7 2 weeks after we get back I think) and an almost 3 year old (she will be 2years and 11 months on the cruise).

I did the Eastern earlier this year and I am very excited about the schedule change to include San Juan and a slightly longer stop in St. Thomas. Hopefully we'll get to visit Castaway Cay this time. We had 2 medical emergency detours and some rough seas that made us have to skip out on Castaway Cay. Our next cruise is in July to Canada out of New York.

I'm daydreaming about snorkeling in St. Thomas again.
