I definitely preferred Disney but we did have a blast on Carnival. We went without kids on the Carnival so that in itself made it probably more fun for us... but as far as the ship, service and shows Disney wins hands down! I don't think that I would bring the kids on a Carnival though... very much a party atmosphere and found it very smokey. We did go on their new ship which was the Dream at the time and we are sailing with Carnival again this October but on an older ship so we'll see how that compares. The price in itself is pretty attractive!

Hi there,

I am Emily, and my DH Scott (ssanders79 on the DIS) and DD (will be 6 at the time of sailing) will be joining you on this cruise. We are booked in Room 5522, but may switch to a verandah..... (we usually book a 5E aft verandah). We were waiting to see what the Magic/Wonder were going to be doing in 2013, but when we saw that the cruises out of Miami were to the same ole' ports, we decided to move our dummy date to this fall cruise. We were so hoping for some new, southern Caribbean ports on the classic ships

This cruise will be our 9th cruise, all will have been on DCL

I will update my ticker after I get off the Dream on Feb 12th

Welcome Emily and Scott! Wow... 9 cruises so jealous! We've done 2 Disney and 1 Carnival so far and I am hooked. We will going with our 5 kids DS's 24,16,9 and 7 and our only DD 21(ThinkTink91) and our oldest sons girlfriend. This is our first time cruising without a balcony but we have connecting rooms 6512 & 6514 both with huge double port holes so that makes it somewhat better. These are the pics my awesome TA sent me of our rooms.http://cassworld.ca/6514.htm

ssanders- add us to the FE list
Okay, I know I'm jumping the gun!!!!

So happy to be on this cruise! It will be me, DH, DS15 and DD13 at the time of sailing. This will be our 3rd cruise! We cruised to Alaska in August 2011, and loved it, and dummy booked then added this once it opened.

Silverfox- we just switched from 7690 to 10664 (5E), so 7690 may still be available. I was not able to get to it until I booked, then changed my room request.

Hi & welcome everyone I was also surprised to see disney doing the same ports but they must have some demand for it
I don't think we are going to take part in the FE this time we are doing a B2B and taking items for the FE eats into a lot of our weight for luggage I will make a decision before you close the list nearer the time.
This will be our 3rd disney cruise and can't wait to see the Fantasy Silverfox you will have to report back when you come off the Dream hope you have a fantastic time

We decided to try one of the 8A cabins also - we have the double porthole huge room as well (5522 - facing Castaway Cay), but ours doesn't have the pole - instead, it has the dividing wall giving it the mini-suite concept!!! We may change our minds tho, we have only not had or scheduled a veranda twice. On our first cruise (our honeymoon), we booked at Cat 12 GTY and were upgraded to a Cat 11 on deck 7. Still inside, but in a great location. Then, we booked another cruise Cat 11C GTY and were "upgraded" to a Cat 9 porthole room on deck 2 of the Magic which we absolutely HATED. I hated deck 2, it was noisy, I just hated it. Hate is a strong word, I should say strongly dislike, as we were still on te ship After that, DH & I decided no more letting DCL choose our rooms. We have a Cat 5A (9648) on our Feb 9th cruise, but we got FL res rates, so that worked out great! On our 3 Fantasy cruises before this one, we have 9674 and 8188 twice. 9674 was available for this one, but DH & I thought, why not try the mini-suite and see? We can always change our minds Who knows? There could always be FL resident rates again

I understand about the FE - we would have a VERY hard time doing it if we didn't just drive over to the port from Tampa. The FE stuff always takes up a duffle bag or more. It would absolutely kill us if we had to fly! We always come back home with one empty bag!

This is a video of the Cat 8A double porthole room (5022) across the hall from ours - shows the mini-suite idea:

We'll have to wait and see who we are flying with. The last time we flew with Spirit and they only allow 40 lbs and carry-ons are more expensive than checked, so we had to be very careful about packing. I think most airlines allows 50 lbs right? We did it on our first cruise and the kids loved it... so hopefully we can this time around.

Joining In

Hi all....
Just switched a dummy date to this cruise....there will be a group of us...4 good friends from Calif (husband/wife Rus & Michelle Orlandos) along with myself & HOPEFULLY my son (Brenda & Ryan) who will be sailing with GREAT friends The McMurphys who we originally met on the 2008 New Year's Eve cruise and also hoping my sister Deb & her hubby Jon will join us too!!

This will be my 8th cruise unless i sneak another one in somewhere between now & then...i just got off the Wonder in Jan & already have another booked for Nov 3 this year - i LOVE LOVE LOVE sailing and only with Disney!!!

I have a hubby - but he won't sail....DS has been my sailing buddy since our first cruise in 2005 but he's away at college, so not sure if his schedule will allow him to be gone a full week next year. Also wanted my daughter and her little guy (& maybe her husband) to join us., but they're not sure if they want to take him yet - he just turned one....

Anyway...there's the scoop on our group. I am booked in 10668 or something to that effect anyway....and looking forward to meeting you all!!!
