We had the large table on the Dream

Little did we know at the time that 5 of them (and maybe even the 6th, can't remember) all have birthdays within 2 weeks of each other! Everyone got along great and the girls all had a great time hanging out with one another!

Anyway, now Ellen and her daughter are hoping to join us and Fluvanna's family! We are hoping to get the other family onboard too! However, they have since added a new addition to their family and I believe that they are wanting him to be a bit bigger when they cruise.

That brings a question: We all sat at one table that accommodated 14 people. If we can get all 4 of the families back together, do they have tables that big on the Dream/Fantasy?

It's gonna be one big birthday party! 4 kids AND 3 moms that have birthdays very close too!!!
celebrating
Carmen,

When we cruised this October we got a huge table for the 6 adults and 3 kids but it would definitely would have sat at least 12-15. I think we should be set.
Hope we can get it.

That's great to know that they do have options for the large groups! Especially getting in the request early

When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.

Let's add another Florida family to this cruise

It will be DH, me, and DS13.
This is DS's spring break and our anniversary week.

We went on our very first cruise ever this Christmas on the Magic. Wonderful time! DS and I wanted to go to Alaska in 2013 but after figuring out the cost, it was a no go. Oh well, at least this way, there is no cost for flying, we just drive to the port.

I will want to join the FE list, we had a good time with it at Christmas even though only 10 cabins participated.

Looking forward to getting to know you all while we "patiently" wait.

I was waiting of the Magic dates out of Galveston to come out and figured I would go back and forth for months as to which cruise I would take but I didn't even put a deposit on the Magic today as the price and itenary were rediculous. So I am definately committed to spring break 2013 on the Fantasy.

I'm a bit mystified by the pricing too. I have been looking at the Alaska trips as a way to get together with family on the west coast. It's a bit surprising to me that I'm finding the Fantasy pricing to be more in line with what we've been paying on the Magic.

Still, I'm going to re-shop the price of this cruise when we sail on the Magic in March. And then I will probably book some kind of cheap cruise as a dummy to lock in the discount and the OBB.

Well, it looks like our (somewhat) large group will be joining in on the party!

My apologies if this ends up going long - I get a bit wordy - but I thought I'd introduce ourselves....

All-in-all there will be 11 of us on this trip:

My family (Phoenix area):
- Ryan
- Stephanie
- Teddy (8)
- Ellie (6)

My sister's family (New Braunfels, TX):
- Kara
- Coty
- Josh (12)
- Gabe (10)
- Molly (3)

Our parents (New Braunfels, as well):
- Rick
- Susan


This will be the sixth cruise for the four of us (we've done the Wonder and Dream) and the fourth for everyone else (same ships), so if anyone has any questions on the ships, I'm more than happy to help.

Needless to say, we're just as excited - if not more - than our first trip! Especially since we'll be celebrating our 14th anniversary on the 13th.

We would love to join in on the FE list, if that's ok. We've done it every year and it's been a lot of fun for the kids.

Anyway, I hope to chat with you all over the coming months. Until then!

Ryan

Welcome Ryan & Co!!!

This will be our 8th cruise by the time we sail and we have been on the Wonder & Magic & are going on the Dream in 2 weeks. By the time we sail on this one, it will be our 3rd on the Fantasy!!! Guess you can say we live DCL

I am very disappointed in the 2013 releases. We just moved our dummy date to an Oct 2013 Fantasy cruise. We were not happy with the prices for Alaska, and we're seriously hoping for Southern Caribbean cruises out of Miami!!! Guess we'll have to "settle" for another 7-night on the Fantasy.

In 2 weeks from today, we board the Dream & will most certainly book another dummy date to move to 2014. Always have to have one "in the hopper"!!

Us too. We've done the Bahamas and the Mexican Riviera, and we were hoping for a Southern Caribbean or a return to the Mexican Riviera. I know there's been a lot of talk about Mexico, but frankly, we had a much better time and felt MUCH safer in Mexico than we ever have in Nassau. Oh well. Don't get me wrong, we're super excited about the Eastern Caribbean, so we're not complaining. And anyway, the new dates that came out seem extremely expensive. Plus, we don't have another Fantasy booking in place, so this will be our maiden voyage on her - we went on the Dream in May as a group and the four of us will be on her again in October.

Same for us -- I am not paying the same or more for a shorter cruise, that doesn't go to CC or Key West. Plus, with the Aquaduck I don't have to worry about my younger girls being entertained or overrun in the pool.

We had also considered switching to a med cruise but with those prices I don't think so.

So y'all are stuck with us! Whether it is all 6 of us or DH and DS decide to do something different and I take my sister as my 2nd grownup -- who knows.

Hello everyone jsut dropping in to say you can add 3 more Canadians to the list myself, DW and DD (12 at time of cruise). To HappyontheLake and MKMommy hopefully the boarding computers are working better this time and we can make a DisMeet, unlike when we were with you guys on the Dream this past March.
Oh yeah we are in room 7682.
