Hello

Kate - I know how you feel with the vacations, but it's a good problem to have!

I loved all off the last Med cruise. I'll send you an email on my thoughts...after our next cruise.

You will not be too happy with the disney dining. We only go one or two days at a time so we usually just buy one meal there, bring snacks, and eat a big breakfast before starting.

Jill

Currently booked for this cruise. 50/50 whether we'll keep it, but posting to follow the discussion.

Sorry to say we are no longer booked on this sailing. We've moved our cruise to the Eastern Fantasy New Years Eve cruise! I just couldn't justify the cost of the cruise, plus airfare from the states, plus overnight lodging before and after the cruise Maybe another year.

Have a great time everyone!!!!

At least double what we've paid in the past and it looks like the pool has gone too So, unfortunately we'll be looking elsewhere - such a pity as we really like it there...
Hey starmaker

Hope all is well. Not posted for a while. Have checked the prices of Novotel Barcelona, they are looking reasonable.

This hotel is where we stayed last year good location for the port and filled with families going on the cruise so there was a great atmosphere and some friends made before embarkation. A little out of the centre of Barcelona though we did not mind. See you soon:wave2

Hi Helen and Judy - time for a reunion?!!!!!

Our 3rd DCL Med. Cruise, although we have done the Med - various ports, including all these - several times on different cruise lines.

Kate
Hi Kate! Great that you're doing this cruise too !!
We're also considering to do this Venice cruise; next week we'll be on the Dream and maybe we'll book onboard.
It would be great to meet you all again.
We could have a pre-cruise meet again at Tellar de Tapas !

Greetings and hugs,
Dagmar, Jos and Walt

My DH, DS (22) and I will be on board. We managed to reserve one of the last connecting rooms.

I am so looking forward to seeing Italy. Saw a "house hunters international" show on Dubrovnik. This place looks really interesting.

Now it's time to save for excursions.

Hi Jill ! Of course we remember. It was Manon, the DD of our friends that filmed your big entrance on the Magic !! Maybe we'll see you again next summer! We will be on the Dream next week (Aug. 10th.) and after the cruise 6 days WDW.

We are booked on this trip

Hi everyone
just got home form an 8 night New York to Bahmas cruise on the Disney Magic which was out of this world. Disney's Castaway Cay is so wonderful. We are booked on this Med trip with Venice and I am counting the days already.

The flights to NY are soooooo expensive from Manchester £818 direct.

Just got bck from the New York to Bahamas cruise, it was Fantastic

What was the weather like? We decided not to do it, thinking that WDW would be far to hot to enjoy!! Booked for October instead, 10 days in Disney. Booked the flights, so can't be indecisive on this one!

Hi!!! Only just seen your post. What a good idea, we enjoyed meeting everyone and it was a brilliant place to do it. The way this is going it will be the 'reunion' cruise! You have to come, too easy from where you are, have a great cruise, I will be interested to hear what you think of the Dream.

Kate

Yes it was very hot, close to 100F and there were lots of people. I decided next time I would go about May time. Would recommend fast passes. But all in all a magical experience, Fireworks amazing.

Just Booked!

I'm new to this discussion board, but am so very excited to have just returned from my first Disney cruise this weekend where I booked this amazing trip! I have two sons, one will be 11 and the other 9 at the time of the trip. I have heard a little bit about fish extenders. I don't know too much about it, but it sounds like a fun "secret santa" type activity. Is anyone doing that for this trip?

I can't hold in my excitement!!
