Just booked...

We just booked our cruise on the Fantasy for June 8th. My parents are traveling as well and booked next door. My DH, DD (12), and I can't wait. This will be our second cruise. We were hooked after our first on the Dream last year. We had terrible weather in October, so never actually made it onto Castaway. I hope this time is better.

Hi everyone! I booked this cruise when we were on the Med cruise last July.

In our traveling Me (Shelly), DH (Lance) and DD (Kiley, 13 when we cruise). DSis (Hope), her DD (Makayla, 13 when we cruise), her DD (Michelle, an adult) and DBoyFriend (Justin, adult). DSis (Leesa), her DD (Rachel, 14 when we cruise). I am the only one on the boards.


I was on the MV of the Fantasy and LOVED the ship!! I am now a member of the Grand Slam Club (all 4 ships). I can't wait to sail on her again~

OP - would it be possible to start a Cruise Roster on the first post? It seems like we have alot of girls around the same age on this cruise. That should be fun!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Facebook???

Has anyone thought about doing a Facebook page for the cruise? I'm not sure who has access, but when we had one for our Dream cruise, it made chatting a lot easier.

We did this for the thread of the MV/Fantasy. It did make chatting easier and people seemed more active. I'm in if we decide to go that way~

Hey everyone! I just booked this morning! I cancelled my June 4 night Dream cruise to try out the Fantasy for the first time. In the past, we've sailied on the cruise that took us to Castaway Cay twice, but as some of us know, they are not offering that option in summer 2013. What a bummer!

My DH and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary on June 11, and DH will celebrate his birthday on June 9th. This will be our first 7 night cruise and we can't wait!

I'm looking forward to chatting with you during the next year. We are leaving next week for a short stay at WDW and then taking the 5 night Double Dip cruise on the Dream.

A Facebook page would be great! We had one for our last cruise too and it was a great way to get to know everyone.

We booked this cruise on the Dream this past May. We just got back from the 3-day Bahamas cruise. This cruise will be our first 7 day cruise. 3 days are just not enough. I have two DD that will be 10 and 8. I am game for a FB group as well. Guess I will keep checking back.

Also, as the trip gets closer, would love to hear some opinions of the multiple port adventures. Thanks

Hello!

We will be celebrating our son's graduation on this cruise. We booked onboard in June 2011 when we were celebrating our daughter's graduation.

It will be myself, DH, DS (17) and DD (19). We cannot wait to cruise again. This will be our fifth Disney cruise.

We HOPE to be on this cruise as well. We just sailed on the Dream 6/15 (our second Dream cruise) and my wife repeatedly said "This is the best family vacation we've ever had." So even though we agreed not to sail again until 2014 I snuck down to the future cruises desk and booked this one. IF we can afford it we'll be on this one - otherwise we might need to "save up" for 2014.

We have myself, my lovely wife, and a DS who will be 14 next year and a DS who will be 9.

I wholeheartedly support the Facebook idea. We had it on both of my other cruises and it really worked well. Much easier to follow topic strings that way. I think the best way to set it up is for someone to create a private FB page. Then everyone who wants to be part of the group has to send that "administrator" a friend request on FB. The administrator accepts the request, then puts the requester in this private group.

Then again, I really don't know much about how Facebook works (I am way too old), so I may be all wet. But I think we want the group to be "private", and I think this is the way to accomplish it. Perhaps someone who knows a lot more about this than I do can get this going? We could then put a link on the Disboards referring fellow 6/8 cruisers on how to join the FB group.

I REALLY hope I get to meet all of you, i.e. I get to go on this cruise with you. It has been 6 days since we disembarked and I still think about the cruise pretty much every second of every day. I don't want to have to wait until 2014 to do it again!

Hopefully this works. I'm looking forward to talking to everyone before we go. I can't believe it less than 1 year to sail date now.

Forgot to mention, the group is a closed group, so you may need to add me as a friend first. Please look for Jennifer Nelis Townsend in Streamwood, IL and send me a facebook message.

Jennifer - just sent you a FB friend request. I sent you my info in a PM on the Disboards. I probably should have told you that BEFORE I sent the friend request!
