Still haven't heard of anyone doing the pre-cruise 3-night Adventures by Disney in Barcelona.
Congrats
We'll be paid in full soon too
I thought I saw someone on the mainboards asking about the pre-cruise ABD, but not sure if they were with our sail date...

Getting excited here too

Since I am cruising with dgs without my dh I will be at Palo's by myself. I have no problem with this but if someone would like to join me since the table will be for 2, then let me know.

Not sure if you all saw this on the main DIS page so I am repeating it here..

The drinking age aboard ship is 21. Valid photo I.D. is required. Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to refuse sale and/or service to anyone.

In recognition of the expectations of our multi-national guests, for roundtrip cruises departing from European countries, where the legal drinking age is lower than 21, a parent or guardian who is sailing with his or her son(s) and/or daughter(s) and/or ward(s) who is between the ages of 18 and 20, may sign a beverage waiver allowing the 18 to 20 year old to consume alcoholic beverages while onboard. Parents or guardians may complete the beverage waiver in the Guest Ticket Booklet or inquire about the waivers upon check-in. Please note: The 18 to 20 year old must comply with all laws and Disney Cruise Line policies related to the consumption and distribution of alcohol in Europe, including among other things, agreeing to not provide alcoholic beverages to any other person, regardless of age. This policy is subject to change without notice."


I didn't know they allowed this on the Med cruises. I plan to sign the waiver for my DS19 as I trust he can handle it no problem.

I think this is something new. I don't ever recall them doing that. Definitely interesting that's for sure.

The shore excursions for the Greek itinerary are up, so we are hoping Venice and Dubrovnik aren't far behind.

When we did the Baltic, several DISers got together and did a Palo Brunch on one of the sea days - we had enough that we were able to reserve the private room. It was so fun and what a treat - I'd never been to Palo before because DH doesn't want to go. Are you planning to do Palo for dinner or something else? Do they have a tea?

I'm good with trying to get a group brunch together but we need 12-14 people. There is a tea but I was not impressed. Brunch is my favorite and then dinner. I am going to try and get both and then I can cancel dinner if I decide not to do it.

I think I remembered reading that they've discontinued the tea. Just brunch and dinner now.

I had heard that too

I only went to Palo Tea once, on our 2008 EB PC repo cruise...
it was an interesting experience

We had a really huge DIS group on that sailing and during the planning a joke was started about the guys crashing the Wenches Palo Tea with a speedo parade...
Well they decided to follow through and the results were very funny

There will be only one other large cruiseship in port with us in Dubrovnik (see http://www.portdubrovnik.hr/girica1.php ). So hopefully the town won't be overrun
Also it looks like while the other ship will get there about 2 1/2 hours ahead of us, they are leaving a few hours ahead of us as well.
