I plan to deliver them on the sea days. It gives the DDs a special thing to do.

I usually have a kid go with me if they are around - it helps to have extra set of hands.

I think another update will be on May 12th - by then all the GTYs should be in.

There's someone on the Facebook group who just booked last week and was asking about participating in the FE. I told her that it had closed on April 1st but that I know some of us will have extras. I'm fine with latecomers as long as I have extra gifts already, but I know that a cut-off is for a reason. With that said, if she wants to participate with the understanding that not everyone will be able to deliver to them, is it ok to tell her to add herself to the main spreadsheet and put her cabin info and call herself a LateComer in the FE column (that is Yes, No)?

Why do you say Yuk about Peter? We haven't had him before, so just wondering.

Although a quick google image search shows me that he was assistant CD on one of our previous sailings. We have had Rachel, Brent, Clayton, and Christian. Or maybe we did have Peter as CD on Alaska - I can't remember now if he was CD or assistant CD then....

I like that it's on Deck 5 and right down the hall from the kid's area. We're over the theatre but we have the late dining and our kids can sleep through just about everything, so hopefully that won't be a concern.
We love the sideways rooms, it is the best.

The next update is on May 12. The 4/27 update is available and I posted it on the 27th.
Is the latecomer 'lambego' that posted on this Board in the last couple of days? I'm okay with including them as long as they understand the situation as you described above. I always try to take a few extra FE gifts...

I have to laugh at posts like this. We have no idea who the CD was on our last 5 cruises, nor do we care. These people do not make our vacation, we do. I have never had a conversation with a CD, nor do I care to. Why do others care who the CD is? I will get flamed here, but I want to know who really cares and why. We go on the cruises to enjoy each other and enjoy new experiences the CD has nothing to do with our bad/good experiences.

Is the RollCall form and spreadsheet locked so that new people can't add to it? Can someone change the settings so they can add their info? I suspect we will still have a few more families find their way to DIS as we sail NEXT MONTH!

Peter has been the CD on the Magic for about 3 years. We had him as our CD on the Med in 2010, I had him on my two day out of NY last summer and then on the NYC to Bahamas cruise. He doesn't compare to Brent, Clayton or Christian. He has a personality on stage but that's it. We've met him many times in the hallways on the ship and tried to have a conversation with him and he's just not friendly. When you talk to the other CD's you feel like they are excited and happy your there and you never feel like you're bothering them. Quite the opposite vibe from Peter. Trust me, everyone I travelled with felt the same about him.

The CD does no make or break my cruise, but he does have a part in your experience. I like to interact with the crew and my DH has made quite a few friends and connections with them over the years. Part of going on DCL is that interaction, that is unlike any other cruiseline. Try it, you may find that you have some new friends. We love when we come back and the crew remembers our names. I"ve had crew members seek us out just to say hi. Trust me he doesn't make or break my experience, if that was the case I wouldn't sail with him.
