I did verify our cabin holds 5. We are in a Cat 8C (family oceanview) so there aren't as many of those on each deck so maybe that is why I couldn't add on. Just a guess on my part though.

Hi All!

Don't know if anyone else had been considering the Lord Sheffield Pirate Day Cruise in St. Maarten, but I just booked it, and they're offering a "Hurricane Season Special" right now. If you book between now and the beginning of November, the adult price of the 3 hour cruise, usually $70, is $55, and the children's price, usually $49, is $40! That's a pretty hefty savings.

Sounds fun! Did you ever get feedback you were looking for?

Sounds good. Congrats on scoring the deal. Thanks for the heads up but we are going for the Bernard's tour for St Maarten. We want to tour the island and hit Maho beach to watch the jets land over your head.

Never got any feedback on the DIS, but read some reviews on Cruise Critic and Trip Advisor, and it sounds pretty good!

Which one of Bernard's tour are you doing? Have you done it before?

As I posted on FB, that's what we plan to do too. I think we'll probably stick with that but I was still intrigued by the Lord Sheffield Pirate Day cruise, but would only do it if we could do the 4.5 hour version. I didn't go through the entire check-out process on their website, but it appears they only do the two 3 hour cruises or the 4.5 hour cruise each day. If Bobbi is doing the 3 hour cruise, I assume they are not offering the 4.5 hour cruise that day.

On our cruise this past summer, they organized two separate Bernard's tours with just those on these boards/FB. They said that you could customize the tour to your liking. One group went to Orient Beach and the other group did not. I think they both hit the airplane beach as well as a trip to the French side and up to the top of the mountains. We want some beach time so will try to schedule one that has an extended stop at one of the beaches.

Hello fellow cruisers! The June 15 Eastern Caribbean will be our first Disney cruise. We usually spend every summer vacation at Disney World. I will have lots of questions!! The crew includes DH, myself, DD-19 and DS who will celebrate his 16th birthday on June 16. We are in cabins 7681/7683 which are inside cabins aft. I toured the Disney Dream in May and was amazed - cannot wait to sail on the Fantasy! I look forward to counting down with everyone!

We want to stick with an Oceanview (not many left) and have my wife's side of the family in cabins nearby. I'll keep trying and I can see the logic that people will free up cabins as the final payment comes closer.

Disney Wonder in San Diego

Went down Friday evening to see the Disney Wonder for first Disney ship to visit here in San Diego. Made the entire family even more anxious for our cruise in June (we all really wanted to sneak on board).

We have not done the Bernard's tour before when we were in St Maarten. We are still looking at which tour. The only required item we want to do is Maho beach. We would like do to a beach for a short time but maybe not Orient beach. We have a DD 14 and DS 10 and really do not wish to explain european swimwear to them. If others are interested then we can form a group and choose the itinerary so please let me if anyone else is interested and what you would want to do.

Sounds awesome. You'll have to post some pics of the Wonder. It has been since 2009 since I last saw her. We were just about to disembark from the Magic and the Wonder was in PC after drydock. It is a great sight seeing both the sisters at the same time. Here is a pic of the Wonder at sunrise.
