"DW" (28) and I (31) recently booked -- our first cruise ever! Sounds like a great way to finally visit this part of Europe!

Lots of reading left to do...

Hi Everyone,

I've been remiss lately in updating the role call. I will be doing this shortly.

My DD has been asking me to do internet searches for this cruise. I have been putting it off because the cruise seems so far away. So, I promised her that tonight we will sit down and start to study, search, investigate, and otherwise do the research for this trip.

She has a thick, mostly emptly, three ring binder ready to go. I'm impressed with her enthusiasm. My DW and I have really brought her up right.

She is also in the process of negotiating how much freedom she will be allowed on the ship. After all, as she notes: "I have been on this ship at on two other trips."

We will see.

I hope all of you are doing well.

Hi All,

I haven't been very active here so far as I have been concentrating on our trip for this year which was the 5 night Magic cruise to Canada followed by 5 nights in New York. We had a great time but found that 5 nights seemed so short after our last extended cruise and it was a shock to be on a cruise and be cold most of the time - I'm looking forward to next summer and actually wanting to go up on deck!

Hi Figment fan

our daughter was 11 last year when we went on the Magic Med cruise. She loved it and we rarely saw her for the 10 days! We did some of these ports and will happily supply any info. we can to help anyone with trips and tips. Just booked for 2013 this morning so really looking forward to meeting everyone (again for some!)

It will me myself, my DH and my DD who will be 6 when we sail.
We are from Scotland and although have been to Disney many many times this will be our first cruise to Europe.
Hi honeybear66, glad to hear there are other Scots on board. We were on the Med cruise last year and loved it. Have just booked up today for this cruise. Can't wait. Happy to provide any planning info - we did all our excursions on our own and survived.
See you there!

It was quiet on the Sunday. Didn't stop much in Naples as there had been a bin men's strike and the streets were full of uncollected rubbish and the place was stinking!! Happy to provide more info for anyone who's interested.

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
Hello Kate and everybody,

We're just back from the Dream and WDW, and you are right, it was very hot on board and in WDW !!
And,guess what... we've booked the Magic for the Venise cruise!
So we are looking forward to do the reunion cruise...this is going to be our 3th med cruise and now we are planning to do some things by ourselves instead of running around on the DCL tours

We liked the Dream as a ship,many new and cool things to do like the aquaduck and the midship detective agency but hated the crowd...to many people, to little time ! Cabanas was a nightmare in the morning, waiting in line for Mickey & co took hours, just one of the things we've loved on the magic in contrast with DLP or WDW was that it didn't took so long to see the Big Cheese...

Dining wasn't that great, except for Remy's (lovely guy from France as a waiter) and had the worst waiterteam ever in regular dining!! He keept trying to speak german to us, and didn't wanted to hear that flemish isn't the same

Prefer the Magic, yay !

So hope to see ya real soon ! :-)

You're not the only ones with that impression of the Dream! I don't know whether in part that is because it is such a short cruise where as on a longer cruise if the queue is long you say "that's OK, I've still got 10 more nights"! We will try the Fantasy so we can play Disney cruise ship bingo, but after that can easily see us sticking to the Magic or the Wonder

Helenreed and TheStewarts...can't believe our girls are going to be together again on this cruise!! G is really looking forward to it, the three of them will have a great time My brother, sister-in-law and niece who'll be 6 when we sail (Nevesmum on this site) are also holidaying with us this time around so it should be great. Sorry G didn't get the chance to meet up with E this time around (up in Scotland), we were so busy but we'll be back up again towards the end of the year...and Helen we need to arrange the meet for the girls to go shopping when we can squeeze that in. Hope you all had a fab time in Florida this summer!! We're on the countdown now
