Hi all. We just changed our dates to this sailing. We had the June 1 Eastern booked but just found that DS school next year will not get out until June 6

It will be DH (dbenlee), DS (he will be 14) and myself. We are very excited about doing an Eastern. This will be our 4th DCL cruise but first Eastern. We loved the Dream and look forward to having more time on the Fantasy.

Father's Day

Didn't even realize that we'll be on the cruise for Father's Day. That mean's Sunday everyone in my family has to do what I want and I don't have to do anything I don't want to. Excellant.

Joining the Group!!!

Hi everyone, we will be joining you!!!!

We had to change our date from June 1st due to my children not being out of school yet. Would have taken them out early for it not for my DD who HAS to go to her 8th grade graduation!!

It is myself, DH, DD (13), DS (11) at the time of cruise. We are from the Windy City.

This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. We have done the Western and sailed the Dream last year! Supper excited for this cruise, I have read so many good things about it!

Love the logo's! My vote: Eastern Fantasy.

Are we doing FE?

aboard the June 15th Eastern Fantasy. If you have any questions regarding the Eastern itinerary please do not hestitate to ask as we have been on several previously. We have done the Western as well (actually doing one in 5 months) as loved it as well. Congrats on your DD. We are in the same position with our DD (14 at time of sailing) finishing 8th and our son will be 11 as well. Small world. We will be doing a FE. I thought we wait until we got a good size group before starting the FE list but we can start now. I'll place the list in the first post.

Is it snowing in Chicago today. It is raining here in Delaware. We are in need of some Caribberan sun.

Snow

We got a light dusting of snow last night!! It really hasn't been a bad winter for us so far.

We are originally from the east coast, NY, and moved here two years ago. I find the weather we get here is about the same there, except colder. NY got more snow where we get more cold.

Love the pictures!!! Can't wait to see those sunsets.

Really like cruising in June, glad we changed from August. I was worried about hurricanes!!!

Thank you so much for coordinating the group list. I have done it for the past two cruises and know how much work it is.

Glad you only received a light dusting. It reached into the 60s here. I'm liking this winter. My heat bills are sooo much lower this year. I think we are at least 10 degrees on average higher.
We have cruised the last 4 October's so hurricanes are nothing new to us. We have seen Hurricane Omar, Noel and Paula. DCL does a great job of not going anywhere near them. Actually the roughest cruise was last year when a surprise tropical wave rocked the Magic and i mean rocked. Half the crew went down as well as passangers. Several other cruise ship never left PC that day. Here are a few pics of that day. June should be calm but a lot hotter. We changed to June with the kids getting older and can no longer take them out of school for the week.

For those that have done the Eastern before, what excursions have you done? Which were the best in your opinion and where there any you wished you had not done? Thanks.
