Count us in, we've never cruised the Med before.

Myself, DH, DS1 (18) DS2 (14)

We have a 7 night Fatasy Eastern Caribbean booked for this October but I must confess, I'm more excited about this trip.

Hellen,

Thank you for the information. I don't think we'll have enough points to help. We have only 228 per year, so even if I use 2 years worth - 458 it won't make enough for even one person for this cruise. I can probably better spend the points elsewhere.

Now, my DD has been over my shoulder for some of this and wants to post. So, any other tweens out there for this cruise??

We are booked on this cruise too!!!! Although, our paperwork says it departs on 7/27, not 7/25. We usually use pointS to offset the costs too, but right now we don't have the points to get anywhere close to what is needed.

We have never done the Med, but are going to Alaska on the Wonder in June this year.

DH and I, plus our two kids (DS, 22 and DD, 19) will be taking the trip, at least I hope they will come with us. Usually they are working, but maybe...

Looking forward to planning this trip with you!!!!

Hi All:

We are booked on this cruise. It will be our 7th on DCL (maybe 8th if I convince DH to do the 2 night cruise to nowhere out of NY this summer) but first ever to the Med. We were waiting for some Eastern Med ports and we booked on the first day (and I've been trying to figure out how to pay for it since then). Apart from me and DH, we will have our 2 DDs (17 and 15 at the time of the cruise) with us. Very very excited!

Sorry everyone...we are on the 6/27 cruise, not the 7/25. I knew something was wrong with the dates, and I got the wrong thread! Duh.

Thank you for the add to the list IrishCowboy. It seems we have confusion by some as to what month we are going. We are in July right???? I'm known for my ability to be confused and confunded.

But, all should be welcome who are sailing in the Med in the summer of '13. (and others who may stop by Besides, if the one's going in June keep dropping by, maybe they'll give us some tips after they return and before we actually leave. I prefer to learn from the good and the bad that others have done, so that I don't make as many mistakes as I usually wind up doing on my own.

Trip Planning

Okay, I also stole this from another thread:

Listed below are some websites and DISthread links for Med cruise planning. If you come across any useful links, please post them in our thread and we can move them over to this central spot. Some of you have cruised the Med before, or have done land vacations to the Eastern Med, and it would be nice to learn from your experiences.

Hi!
We are DH, DW, Ds 15, Dd 13, Dd 10. We are also traveling with another family who are DW, Dh, Dd 16, Ds 15 and Ds 11.

We've booked!!

Hi there
We booked a "place holder" cruise whilst onboard the 10 night med last year (2011) in the hope that Disney would be back in Europe in 2013 and in particular - Venice! So...we've transferred onto this sailing Hi to both Helen and Kate. Helen, G has emailed L - she is super excited to learn that we're on the same trip again, they had such a fantastic time last year. This will be our 4th trip on the Magic and, like Helen, I'm happy to answer any questions anyone may have.

Hey disneycrazy2004 Welcome!

I saw that you are on the 7/13 thread as well. It seems a lot more active than this one. But, we do have a long time yet.
I noted that your DD is 11 now and will be 13 on the cruise. My DD is 11 now, but won't actually turn 13 until 3 weeks after we get back. I'm not sure how that is going to work with the clubs. I'm sure she can't get into the teen club, but I hope the younger clubs will be okay for her.

PS - Very jealous of the back to back. But, congratulations, it sounds like so much fun.

This will be the first time I have taken more than one week off since I was in school.
