DCL changed last year. I think it was early last year. You can no longer book Palo or excursions using your own CC status for linked staterooms with a lower CC status. Only for the persons registered in your own stateroom.

Don't know what the procedure is for concierge staterooms, it could well be different. But not on non-concierge staterooms.

If the linked staterooms have the same CC status, no problem.

What part of Ontario are you from? DH is from Toronto but moved out west when he was a teenager.
Hi NanNan ... I grew up in Oakville, but now live in Waterloo. Will be nice to have some fellow Canadians on board eh!

We haven't booked yet but plan to soon. The fares have stayed pretty much the same but are starting to inch up. We are trying to do a week in Spain before the cruise and need to work out the logistics before doing the airfare. It's running around $1200 now if our return is flexible.

Just want to stop in and say hi! We booked this trip on Day 1 along with two other families but wasn't sure if we'll actually do it. With the PIF date next week, we finally committed! It'll be me, DH Sean and DD10 Allison. I'm sure our friends will chime in soon as well - they are Casa Martinez and Double Trouble. Is there a centralize place where all Dismeet, FE, and other things are posted, like a website? 90+ pages are a lot to go through!

Our tour guide didn't count properly and some other tourists had mingled into our group and by the time the guide sorted those people out of his count, he miscounted. Thankfully the DCL CM that was with us recounted as we were pulling away on our little train and came up short and realized that we'd left someone. We had to wait 1/2 hour for her to be fetched and when we got back to La Spezia, they had held the last tender for us - other people were glad because they'd have been left behind if our DCL excursion had not been late!:

That's a great idea, will have to remember to do that as well for any singles on tours! And it would be my luck to be left in the restroom

He is a flight attendant for Luftansa so have to wait for his schedule before we know for sure. Sue Less than 60 days to opening day on 4/5 in SF and I will be home!
awwww thanks!!!

we are now joining the PIF club

Welcome! I have a link in my sig to a post in this thread that has the list of who is sailing with us and links to the roll call form which populates the roll call spreadsheet. There's an option there to indicate if you want to participate in Fish Extenders or not. There is also a link for how to join the Facebook Group if you're so inclined. Not everyone is over there, but I think when it's time to put the FE list together, it will be a combined effort - so if you sign up here or there, it doesn't matter. I'm not sure if we have someone who is coordinating the FE list when the time comes or if we've set a sign-up-by date or not (we're sailing B2B and I know one has an April 1st sign up day but I can't remember which is which).

For quick reference - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=214 which contains this information:

This morning I ordered street maps for Barcelona and Rome as well as the AAA tour book for Europe and country maps for Spain, France, and Italy. I love maps!

Since we are in BCN for a few days pre- and post-cruise, I wanted to study up ahead of time - we did this when we went to London and having my bearings before we ever got to the hotel was so helpful in us finding our way and not looking so much like tourists. I could plot out our route ahead of time and we could walk with confidence.

For Rome, since we are doing Rome in Limo and have some ideas for what we'd like to see, I wanted to plot out on the map where the sites are to see what looks feasible for doing so when we start finalizing things with RIL, we won't have unreasonable expectations about what we can do.

Hi! The FE exchange sign-up deadline is April 1. I'm not on Facebook so I'm not sure how that is working with the FE exchange. I am going to work only with the list in the sign-up spreadsheet we established quite some time ago so hopefully everyone will be listed there!

Speaking of Meet activities, do you all want to schedule a brief meet-and-greet for the first day onboard? And what about for the first Sea Day for those who might not be able to make it to a sail-away meet and greet? I personally love getting to put faces with the names I've become familiar with early on in the cruise as it's nice to have friendly faces to say hi to when passing. We've found that the Promenade Lounge is a good place for a sailing day meet and greet, usually 30-minutes or so before safety drill. We obviously don't have to decide right away but could start thinking about if we want to do something particular.

Also, we'll be staying at the Renaissance Barcelona arriving on Thursday morning and would be happy to Meet and Greet on Thursday and/or Friday evening in the lobby of the hotel for anyone else who is staying there (or makes their way over). If you think you'd be interested, PM me and I'd be glad to host. We've done that before and find that it's a good way to share port-city touring tips ... we got a great tip in London about how to not have a long line to see the crown jewels at the Tower by meeting up with other DISers the first night while we still had a whole other day to tour London.
Thank you SO much! I'm not sure how to identify folks to PM but I'm happy to try. A meet in Barcelona sounds great...we are staying at the Grand Marina (we loved it last DCL cruise...it was a DCL hotel that trip) so I'm not sure we can make it to the Renaissance. We arrive in Barcelona on Thursday and plan to do HOHO on Friday.

I vote for a meet and greet on the ship. We've been to several in the Promenade Lounge and that location worked very well.
