We could do it. With FB, I worry about people who are not on our cruise seeing I'm gone for 3 weeks... If you know what I mean.

Just my $0.02, but some people do not have a FB account, nor will I establish one.

I've participated in FB groups for other cruises and found them actually harder to follow than DIS or other forums. I personally like having all my planning in one spot and have found the DIS to be perfect for DCL cruises. The use of PMs for tour sharing has been good for us previously.

Finally have seats on a plane going to Barcelona AND getting home!!! We have been in frequent flyer h---! Actually have flights to Paris - would have to do Paris to Barcelona on our own (only $600 for 4). So worst case scenario is about $1200 for the four of us instead of cheapest $5000+ from Portland, OR. Still hoping for paris to Barcelona to open up - keeping fingers crossed! Will continue to research accomodations for a little longer.

Wishing everyone luck with their flights!

Sounds good and wishing you pixie dust for the last leg. I am happy that we now have our resevations now I just need to call DCL with the flight info for our DCL transfers and we are done except for the shore excursions. I am figuring they wont be out until Jan. any one else have a thought on that? Sue

Well, apparently the DCL hotel rooms for Barcelona are all full up. If you want DCL to book you a room, you're on a waiting list. Hmmm... oh well, it'll probably be cheaper to book it myself at this point anyway.

I called a couple of weeks ago and had them hold one. So far, I can't get The Renaissance cheaper, but there are others to be had that aren't bad.

Was able to find a flight out of Dulles for $1286 that could align with two frequent flier tickets. We also made reservations for Hispanos 7 Suiza for an apartment that could accomodate the 5 of us. Looking forward to meeting everyone! MinnieDiva - noticed that you're in Oak Harbor - we spent 8 years there prior to our move to Maryland. (I actually still telecommute to my job in O.H. as well...)

Part of our group is flying out of Dulles. Which airline and how many stops is your $1286 flight?

We leave out of Dulles on 6/12 on Lufthansa through Frankfurt. Have 4 hr layover there, but were able to fly together. (Was scrambling between FF accounts and Lufthansa and almost stranded my DS in Frankfurt for 2 hours without the family.....had to do some flight changes)

We left in October 2005 - I come back for a week every year in Feb/Mar to work "in house" for tax season and do the rest from here. We'll have to stay in touch as the cruise gets closer and I know my dates for the 2013 trip. Am also an obsessive planner - have my binder going now....

Thank you for the information I sent it on to them.

Hi All. I'm sorry to say that we'll be jumping ship (pun intended) and won't be joining everyone next summer. We moved over to NCL. We were doing B2B with the Venice and with NCL we could do a Greek and W Med from Venice for half the price of DCL and upgraded into a balcony and the ports are a little better fit for our B2B needs.

Happy sailing to everyone, and if you see NCL in the same port I hope the Capt will blow the Mickey horn so we'll have a taste of Disney!
