Welcome aboard! Who's in your crew? Are you cruising with any children? Be sure to check the first post on this thread for info about fish extenders and to join our facebook group if you like.

When you have time, peruse the thread to get to know the gang and to share in all the info we've uncovered about the ship, itinerary, or whatever.

Can't wait to share the fun!

Here's the story about not gaining weight on a cruise that DH did back in 2008. I hope it's readable...

I plan on gaining weight. That's why I try to loose some before! I'll just try not to gain too much where I can't loose it.

Hello Everyone,

We will be sailing also. Myself, DW, DD (14), DD (11). This is our second Disney Cruise. We hope DD #2 makes a friend fast! This is our 20th anniversary celebration with a week at Disney World after the cruise.

Thanks

Thanks for the article...I couldn't reply with the "quote" since I am still a newbie to posting

Thanks! I think I am going to try to make that pact with the DH, although if I get a mile run in I will be proud of myself! Great thinking figuring out your resting metabolic rate, I will definitely figure ours out in June. Hoping mine will change as I lose weight before then. Are you considering the Castaway 5K? I am not a runner but am thinking about it, maybe it will give me a little extra motivation and something different to do It being our first cruise though I saw on a lot of threads not to over book yourself, which I tend to do and enjoy but since it's our anniversary I guess I should consider the DH's preferences

question for the experienced;)

Just wondering what you veteran cruisers think of my plan....Since it's our first cruise I have the urge to do EVERYTHING possible but tend to overbook. I was thinking one port doing an excursion but at another just going to the beach and relaxing. I really don't want to miss anything yet know the DH likes to just relax so I thought it would be a good compromise. He would run around though if you all thought it would be worth it, we are going to a beach in S.C. the week after our cruise to "just relax". Do you think I would feel deprived if I just enjoyed the beach? We have never been to St. Marteen or St. Thomas, and I do like to be on the go yet want to enjoy time with the hubs.
Thanks

Our first cruise (Granch Caymon, Key West, Cozamel) we did excursions but looking back I was a bit sorry we really didn't see the islands (only the excursion). Our second cruise in Alaska we did everything on our own and really enjoyed being able to pace ourselves. This cruise we are planning exactly what you are. One excursion on St Thomas and St Marteen on our own (e.g. taxi to a beach). Really wanted to see St John but couldn't justify 1.5 hours on a ferry for 2-2.5 hours on the island.

We have a double supply of DD10s, so maybe that can work. . There also seems to be a growing supply of DD14s as well (Including one of mine!)

Happy (soon to be) anniversary btw!

I would really love to do the CC5K and did some research on it. I do run, but strictly on a treadmill. I thought if I only ever did one race in my life, this would be the one to do. My only reservation is, the whole process seems extremely time consuming, and I don't know if I'm willing to take that much time away from my CC day with my son When I hit the gym, it's usually early in the morning before anyone else is up, so it doesn't take away from my time with them. I too shall have to give it some serious thought.

Glad you liked the story! We may be publishing something else Disney related soon, but I'll keep you all posted...
