Viator has a lot of tours that look good. It's hard to know whether to book right away or wait for one of the days where you get 10% off all tours if you book on that day. Those don't happen very often, though.

I've been burned before, so I book everything early. Well, that's my excuse. I'm just really excited and have fun planning. Also, the Canadian dollar is really good right now (above par), so that's helping the budget right. I'm buying USA $ now to pay for our the cruise in March. Is everyone going to attempt gladiator school? I'm afraid I might not be able to move the next day with all that jumping, etc.! Should be fun.

Did you get the e-mail that Wednesday, all tours booked that day are 12% off? It may be hard to find other, family-friendly tours through them, though. I'm not seeing that many others.

Hi Alex

Hi Alex: I wrote a PM, but I don't have enough posts to send it! Drat! I hear you about the Edge obsession. We just did Alaska and my daughter lived there. My son lived in the Oceaneers Lab. They are both bummed that they will only have 3 days at sea on this cruise. Gah!

Hopefully my PM will go when I get 10 posts! if not, I will repeat it and resend. We are in Edinburgh, to visit my sister, from the 20-24th. We are doing the touristy things, lol.

Carol

excursions

So, it seems that many of you book your own excursions, ie not through Disney. Is this the case? When we went to Alaska we booked all of our excursions through Disney. How hard is arranging the transportation, etc (I got spoiled that Disney just took care of everything). Also, is it really that much cheaper? Very curious about this!

Thanks.

Gladiator school

My kids are all over this idea. I am looking into it. I will have to work out before the cruise!

excursion questions

For those of you who have done this cruise before, what were your favorite excursions, and which would you avoid like the plague?

Flights booked!

DW (28) and I (31) are getting quite excited about this, our first cruise ever. If there was ever any doubt about whether we'd pull out before the March full payment deadline, it was eliminated this past week when we booked our (non-refundable) flights!

We're from Vancouver, so we decided to extend our European vacation a bit and see a few places other than during the cruise. On our itinerary are Amsterdam, Barcelona (of course), Milan, Munich, Berlin and Frankfurt. We haven't been to any of these places before, so the month-long trip will be chock full of firsts for us!

We spent a lot of time last year looking through various websites. We came across these series of videos which helped us quite a lot.

Hey bephoebe, I'm more than likely booking most things through Disney. I like the convenience, but I'm more than willing to change and learn as I read more. Also, I liked your countdown. Congratulations on 10 posts!
