Our TA couldn't get it changed for some reason, so before we sign on again, I'm just checking our options. A little extra space is always a plus when you've got 4 in a cabin!

So, your thoughts on the guaranteed cabins?
We booked a VGT (the restricted rate) and were given one on Deck 8 aft...very pleased with the location. We had the "split" verandah wall (half solid, half clear) and were perfectly satisfied. Larry loved being able to just run up one deck for coffee and pastries in the morning. My mother had an OGT (single porthole) on deck 2; you could have shot an arrow straight down from our cabin to hers. No complaints from her either.

Good! My mother was your Secret Mickey and (I found out afterward) you were ours, so I wanted to say thanks. We tend to be a bit shy, too, but somehow the interaction online makes it much easier to talk to people onboard .

Yes, we are all obsessed (in a nice way ). Why else would we all be signing up for the "Maybe" cruise?

I spoke briefly to Dave and he didn't say much. they do have a cruise booked for the Fantasy in September (booked on board the Alaskan cruise) and I know they won't be making that so maybe I can get them to transfer the booking to this (when it's released) and they can then see how it goes.

I know Kimberly is definitely interested since she's been mentioning it on facebook.

Count us in Mike and Lexi. So excited. Husband is from Croatia and used to work on RCI and said it would be very tight to make it from Venice in 2 days. Ship will most likely go empty to the embarkation port.

Okay, since my Canadian citizenship makes me a de facto subject of the realm, do I get to join the UK club? (I hope I used that right. I just love the sound of that, "de facto.")

You guys were awesome Secret Mickey's, too! You had our "likes" pegged perfectly. I felt sorry for our recipients - ours seemed a bit lame by comparison.

Totally off topic (I say this because we never, ever, go off topic here ). I should know better than to audition for a play when I haven't read the script. I got cast, then came home and read it. By the time I got to the end I was thinking, "Wow, this is really stupid, even for a farce." I mean, farce is supposed to be funny and implausible, but not stupid. Oh well. The show I really want to do goes up after this one, and it's been a while since I've been onstage, so I guess I'll just think of this as getting my acting chops back in shape. Besides, people here are so culture-deprived they'll love it, regardless. Not to mention the fact that I'll get a bit of turn-about on Dennis. All those nights I was the "theatre widow" while he was off playing stage manager - now it's his turn. (Uh oh, I just realized - our poor dogs are going to starve.)

Since you may have gotten lost in the chatter, I'll say aboard! (Well, theoretically "aboard" since the cruise is still only theoretical.) It's a bit intimidating when everyone seems to know everyone else, but just jump in on the discussion. We don't bite. Okay, not much.

1. You're very welcome...it was fun!

2. You go girl!

3. Turn-about is fair play, as they say. I'm sure D is more than capable of feeding the babies . Congrats on the play...it sounds like a lot of fun, even if it is "stupid" . I would never have the nerve.

When are you two going to WDW. I am going Feb. 7th for 3 days. Did you meet Josh who was at our dinner table? He's just a hoot and a young whipper snapper, anyway he is going to be a Conservation Education Presenter at Animal Kingdom starting next week. I want to give him lots of support from our group.

It's good to see you here, hugs to you both.

Evelyn
Evelyn give Josh a great big hug from us, I hope he settles in well in his new job but I think he was made for it.

I'm glad to hear Trent is excited too, Lee is SO looking forward to it. Although he just keep trying to make sure i'm not getting too excited by keep reminding me that it hasn't been annouced yet....he has failed miserably though as I am hyper!

My first and only previous Disney Cruise was way back in 2005, and due to my daughters education and Uni commiments I havent taken one since so Im extremly unfamiliar with how it all works, so can I just ask, what type of Stateroom are most of you trying for?? has anyone been in an inside cabin for this length of cruise and how was it? and finally for now, do you get to select what dinner seating your on early/late or is it automatic.

Thank you so much for any help and info

Just found this thread, didnt think there would be one running yet, hoping this becomes a real cruise. Anyway we are hoping to join in this cruise we did the 2010 WB and really enjoyed it. We are DW Trish (hotfudgesundae) and myself Michael (epcot1stfave). We are more of a reader than posters but we like to try and keep up with the news. Allready recognising a few names from the 2010 although we didnt get to meet many of you. Hoping to do better this time.

This really doesn't tie in with the dates posted on the port schedule, so it's definitely not going to be like last year. It looks like there may be shorter cruises and the big 12 day gaps may mean that they can go a bit farther afield???? Nip round to the eastern side of Italy instead of Civitavecchia and Naples ..... we can but live in hope.
Was having another look at Villafranche port and yes, you are right the gaps are all different durations ie 3,7,2,4,12,7,5,4,12,14,5,7,4,3,7 so maybe on the longer gaps they are indeed doing a Western Med and....

Possibly dropping into Venice to collect items for the refit. Ships have been known to so some refitting whilst cruising so they would need less time in dry dock later. As for the 2,3,4 day gaps they could be visiting Villefranche twice in one cruise POSSIBLY....WHO KNOWS...COME ON DISNEY!!!! PUT US ALL OUT OF OUR MISERY WE ARE LOSING HAIR IN HANDFULS...!!
