We're in!

Hi all!

I have just changed our booking from 21 November to this one. We will be on our 2nd cruise. Excited already. We will be interested in a Fish Extender exchange. Is there a Facebook page set up?
Thanks
Lorna & Julie

Talking Got Fish...

I have not thought about Fish Extenders, but I know that we will start something....

I have not set up a facebook page, but let us know if you want to...

I am glad you changed to our sailing. I guess you are a DCL convert now

FISH EXTENDERS

I had mentioned it earlier, and just to reiterate - I have taken over the coordinating of the FE for this cruise. Info:

Please send me a PM or email to ravensilverlight@yahoo.com with the following information:

Your DIS name
Stateroom #
Names/gender (I never assume!) of adults
Names/gender/ages of kids
Special notes others should be aware of (allergies, special celebrations, etc.)
Your email address (PMs on the DIS can only be sent to 5 people at a time, so it is VERY difficult to send a list to all participants that way - email is much easier!)

Also, if you could make sure to specify that you're signing up for the NOVEMBER 24TH 3 NIGHTS that would be very helpful, as I'm also coordinating the FE for the 4 night on Nov. 27th!

Any questions/comments/concerns let me know! I can't wait! We just got back from the WBPC and can now start getting excited for the next trip all over again!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!

My amazing husband decided for my 30th birthday to take me and our amazing daughter on a Disney cruise!!!! I'm so excited I can't stand it. This is going to be our first Disney cruise after being annual pass holders for pretty much my whole life (got to love being a Florida girl). I am really excited about the FE so I'll be sure to get our info to the right people. Also, we would love to meet up with others with young kids. Our daughter is going to be almost 3 on this cruise.

Almost 3

How strict is DCL with ages for things... I know this sounds like a silly question I'm sure they are very set on ages but I ask because my DD will be a month shy of 3 on this cruise. I've been looking at the Small World Nursery and I'm thinking she's going to be bored...I was thinking about trying to see if she can go with the 3 year olds. Either way I can't wait!!!! What are your "Must Dos" when you're on a cruise???

Talking good questions...

As far as the age... it is up to the counselors. From what I have heard, they will see how she does in the older group but will suggest Small World if it is too much for her.

Must do's... now that is a loaded question.... Being its your first cruise (just like another family we are traveling with). The one thing I can not emphasize to new DCL families is slow down.... you will not be able to see and do everything in 3 days. Heck, we spent 7 days on the Fantasy and did not see everything. But the top things.. Fireworks show, Sail away party,theater shows, & Castaway Cay. Usually the water slide is open late so the line is close to none.

Dont be shy about asking questions.... We had plenty going on our 1 DCL, now we are going on our 7 & 8th (we are doing the back to back for thanksgiving)

Good to know, I'll have to make sure to talk to the counselors about that! that's promising....
I'm already looking at when we can go on our next one I've always been a cruise person and the more I read about DCL I think I'm done with some other cruise lines.

Smile convert...

So are we... we have been on many cruise lines and we discovered this... there are no bad cruises just some cruise lines that we don't care for..

For the last 6 cruises, we have not defected from DCL It is more expensive then any other mass market lines but it is worth every penny. Now that being said, DCL has changed over the years, but the attentiveness from all the crew members has not
