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.

Hey,
Thank you! We got lots of saving to do for the next year and a half. Hopefully everything will go as planned and we are going to have a blast. We are very excited. I grew up in Europe but haven't been back for a very, very long time, so really looking forward to it.

My DD will be 13 when we are on the cruise, not sure about the clubs. We were on a cruise in 2008 and both of my kids did not care about the clubs at all. But they will both be teenagers, so things may be different We got lots of planning to do.....This will be so much fun

My DD will also be 13 at the time of the cruise, we sailed the Med with DCL last year and my kids were never out of the clubs! It really gave them a taste of independence that they loved. DD had made friends with 3 other girls here on the Disboards and they went everywhere together, it really was the best holiday they have ever had. So don't worry I am sure your girls will be just the same! If you would like to PM me I will give you my DD's email address and they can start chatting

Hi there and welcome Disneycrazy2004

We are myself (dw), dh and dd who will have just turned 14 when we sail. As Helenreed has mentioned it's great if the children can get chatting before we sail, it certainly breaks the ice! My dd and Helen's dd (along with another 2 girls) got chatting before our med cruise last summer and arranged to meet in the terminal prior to boarding (all wearing the pre-arranged LARGE sunglasses ) and then spent the next 10 days hanging out - they had an amazing time and still keep in touch now! They used the wave phones to make arrangements, went to shows, the cinema, had lunch, pool parties, kids clubs - you name it, they did it! My dd says it was her best cruise EVER! You're more than welcome to pm me your email address if your dd would like to get in touch.

Helen - thanks for the message, I've replied but let me know if it doesn't arrive....I can never seem to be able to retrieve my replies??!!

I moved the roll call to page one by editing one of my posts. That should make it easier to find.

Sounds like the group so far will be just out of my DD's age range. I'll think I'll keep that one a little quiet until the group gets larger. Luckily, DD only watches over my shoulder on weekends. A lot of my lurking and posting happens between breaks at work.

We are booked - me, DH & DD (13 at time of cruise) & DD (8 at time of cruise). 6th DCL, but first Med. I'm currently in the middle of a 4 year course, so apologise now if I'm not in here much, but after my last exam (fingers crossed 8/5/13) I should be around a bit more

This is too cute! I will send you PM and one to Helen as well and may be the girls can start chatting. My DD was excited when I told her. Thank you to both of you

And the group grows. I mentioned to DD about chatting. She's thinking about it.

We had a hiccup over the weekend. Spend Saturday night at the emergency room with DD experiencing pain in her right side. So far no explanaition. All blood levels are normal. No gallstones (okay, who ever heard of gall stones in a skinny 11 year old???) and no kidney stones. Everything functioning normally. Now, more tests. The doctors are leaning toward scoliosis and displacement of organs. The curve was very slight a few months ago, I haven't noticed any changes, but she grow about 3 inches in the past three or four months.

Anyway, we got to see her on morphine. She's was in the emergency room quoting Mel Brooks movies.

Now she has vicodin for the pain. The pain is enough that she doesn't even get loopy from the medication. I hope this resolves soon.

Any suggestions on making the roll call better??

Any links for exploring?

Ah, the speculation begins - and maybe hope for a lower price offering?

Thanks disneycrazy.

DD is feeling better. Looks like a scoliosis back brace is in her futuer. I guess that is better than many other things.

I hope all of you are doing well. Just had a little of that hope we are all healthy at the time of the cruise feeling.

Lately while watching the food network, all I can think of is:: gee, that is the type of food we'll be eating on the cruise . . . sigh.

Hey, K8t. That bump didn't last long.

Made the decision last weekend to go to WDW for Spring Break. Thought we'd not do anything until this cruise and save money.

Last Friday, the kids had a snow day. DD put together a power point on why we should go during spring break. She won me over - okay, with Disney, it doesn't take much. Her mother helped with figuring out the costs. 4 of us for 4 days, under $1500. It helps to be DVC, the room is paid for so the majority of cost is tickets. Another ~200 gets us 6 days. Thus, we're gone.

I feel so technologically deficient. I wondered how much of the power point DW did, then she reminded me that DD did a speach on power point at school last year, so DD did 90% of the presentation. Ouch - I'm really not tech savvy.

Anyway, just something to keep me distracted from thinking about the cruise for a few days.
