Welcome!

I was living in Fredericksburg 3 years ago during "snowmageddon." Thankfully, back in Orlando now!

They were calling for it again on Thursday, but as usual the weather men missed the ship.... all we got was rain. HOWEVER the temps are dropping and the wind is picking up; I would hate to be on the Mall Monday morning it is going to be bitterly cold... Thanks for the welcome and Hope to meet you ‘all...

Hello everyone!!

Just disembarked the Fantasy this morning. What a trip! I've decided Jan is NOT the optimal cruise month. We were blessed with really great weather but the seas were rough both on the trek down and back. JQ is convinced the ship is not the same since Hurricane Sandy.

We stayed at the Hyatt precruise and will post a mini review.

We are at WDW tonight and will be home tomorrow. Decided to try out the Art of Animation resort for our one night stay and it's so so. We're in the Little Mermaid section - just a short "drive" from the lobby. Too bad we didn't rent a car!

Took our PAP's to the Studios today and it was MOBBED!!! I don't know what the heck they were giving away, but the crowd level was waaaay above a 10!! Felt like we were at capacity. Fastpasses for RnRC were gone by 1. The bleachers for the lights motor action were completely filled the same way it was when the show first opened. I haven't seen the parks this crowded since attending a July 4th celebration 17 yrs ago.

Glad to see you guys have kept our thread active all week!!

dvc deernut: love the idea of a food and wine marathon. I've tried to eat around the world twice now and have yet to succeed. So bring it on!!!


Lorelai71: Glad to have you with us!!

gmcmah and mdwoodman: all this talk of snowmageddon made me panic and check the weather back in NJ!

Hi Kris and everyone,
It's so nice to be back home with the 20 degree weather. We really lucked out on this cruise with temps in the 80's. Castaway was a bit chilly and windy in the morning but it warmed up nicely for the afternoon.

We went to Magen's Bay by taxi in St. Thomas and were not impressed at all. The beach, which used to be showcased in the top 10, has dropped considerably over the years. The two "ladies" running the beach rentals were the shadiest things on the beach. Poison questioned their method and motive for wanting too much info on a $5 cash deposit. What an operation they have going. We just sat on towels.

Old San Juan, on the other hand was surprisingly beautiful. From the narrow streets to the historic spanish forts this was by far our favorite port on this trip and we will not hesitate visiting again. We hopped on the free tram and toured Castillo San Cristobal on our own for a whopping $6. The sail out that evening gave us some fantastic views and pics of the island.

Also, all three of our at sea days were fairly rough seas, especially at night in the cabin.

We did the Remy and Palo brunches and Palo dinner. Remy wins in our book with Palo brunch a close second. We got a little tired of the dining rotation and toward the end felt a little compelled to be there for our servers who were excellent.

We're not "gold" yet. This was cruise #3. Our fifth will be the Dec. 4th Magic out of Miami, which is the date they wanted to use for the dummy cruise we booked while on board.
