Good morning everyone! Can you believe the Fantasy sets sail for her first "official" cruise tomorrow? Wow.....I bet that group of DISers are soooo excited!! I can't wait to hear how their cruise went!

We would be interested in t-shirts, a DIS meet and greet, and the FE event as well. We sat out on all the DIS festivities last time around because on our 2nd cruise, first Christmas cruise , we had so many DIS activities, that we literally ran ourselves ragged and were exhausted by the end of the cruise. We felt we never really got to enjoy the cruise and/or Christmas for that matter ugh

But knowing my DD18 like I do, I know she will want to do it all since it is my DSIL18 first experience with all things Disney! Besides, we will have little baby Jordan with us this time around and I want him to see and do EVERYTHING!! (Do I sound like an excited grandparent or what??)

Today, my DS15 and I are off to see Wrath of the Titans!

Shannon

We are in Bel Air, about an hr and a half north of Annapolis. Annapolis is a beautiful town, especially in the spring!

Has anyone thought about starting a facebook page for our group? I know other groups have done this with overwhelming interest and success. It makes the group more accessible and personable.

If anyone is interested... let me know and I can have DD18 set one up. We can have a security component to it as well, to ensure only members of our group are on. It may help to get the tweens and teens talking as well !!

Let me know!

Not sure they can do any better but I thought I would ask. I will tell them to save as a vector image. They use Photoshop so I'm sure it's not a problem.

I like the one color look. Plus I'm into saving money to give to DCL!

We've had one for our last two cruises and loved it. You have my vote!

facebook page

If no one has any objections, I will have DD18 set up a facebook page for us. I will wait another week or so to get more feedback from our group and then will give her the go ahead! I just want to make sure we are all in agreeance before I give her the green light!

I use Facebook at times but have a few questions about using it for the cruise group communications.
Will it replace most of our communicating through the Dis Boards?
How secure will it be from just anyone outside of the cruise people jumping in on our exchanges?
Lastly, as the cruise gets closer more people who are on the cruise will be joining in on this thread to talk. How will they become aware of the Facebook account?

Chris

Good morning everyone!!

Today is the Fantasy's maiden voyage......YAY!!
i am so excited for her first group of passengers (not half as excited as they are, I'm sure )

I have read on other meets, that they have used faccebook and LOVED it. In fact, the group that is setting sail today has a facebook page. They continue to chat on the DIS board, but use facebook for more in depth and personal topics. They set up security measures to ensure that only their group was allowed in and/or could see what was being discussed. I know absolutely nothing about how to set this up, but facebook is my DD18's life and she claims it can be done quite easily. But, it's 100% up to the group. I am more than happy with the way things are, I just thought it would be a way for the group to get to know each other easier and feel more secure about what they post. Especially the tweens and teens. I know that every other group that has used facebook has loved it....but it has never been used on any of the DCL cruises we have taken, so it would be something new to us as well.

I will be watching the port web cam today to see our ship leave.....wishing it was us!!!

Thank you Shannon for the info. Lynn and I are a go for using facebook. The last two days we have been looking at our watches or clocks and saying the people on the Fantasy should be doing such-a-such thing at this time. We have the RCCL New England & Canada cruise coming up in October but the Fantasy cruise can't come soon enough.

Chris

Hi everyone!

We have been doing the same thing Chris! We watched the Fantasy take off yesterday via the web cam (and I must admit, we welled up a little at the sight ) And all day today, we have been saying the same thing..... they should be here, they should be doing this, etc....the whole timing wishing it was us haha

I will have DD18 Morgan set up a facebook book page for us soon and have her let everyone know the details as soon as its up and ready to go..... the name, security code, etc...

Shannon

This is a reworked version of the cruise design. I wanted to keep the original artwork because I really liked. Our Graphics Department just rearranged the words and added a little bit. I have the .svg version that I can email if this is what everyone wants to use.

Hello everyone, subscribing.

Anyway, we are booked for this cruise (1st cruise ever). Anyway, would appreciate everyones thoughts (esp veteran DCL cruisers) about what Excursions are worth doing on the West Carr. itinerary. Keep in mind we are 3 generations (6 people) ranging in age from 4 to 82. Beach/swimming , historical/sightseeing tours are definitely in .. speedboats and scuba diving are out !! LOL ..

Looking forward to reading the thread. Very excited.
