Question: if you had friends coming to London and wanted to show them something unique, fun, or totally cool, where would you take them?

We have two things planned. Westminster Abby as DS will find this neat and a restaurant we found called 'Roc 'N Soul'. Best fish and chips these Yankees have ever had. (Admittedly, this is not a difficult feat to accomplish, but I still have the picture of the plate of food we ate that day)
Hi there<

We're from the North-East of England but we have a daughter who is heavily into drama and music so we are frequent visitors to London as a result. Try a Duck Tour - we all enjoyed this and it's a good way to see some sights from the river! http://www.londonducktours.co.uk/ We also like the Imperial War Museum and The London Dungeons. There may be some Londoners who can recommend some more "hidden" places of interest too! Unfortunately you just miss out on a visit to Buckingham Palace, the Queen doesn't open her home to the public until July 27th, which is a shame as that's a fab thing to do!

Stateroom Ears - Mickey Gondolier

I just finished Stateroom Ears door magnet of gondolier Mickey for our cruise.

Here is what it looks like on the stateroom door
[IMG][/IMG]

Here is the Printable form. This works like the other Stateroom ears door magnets in Disboards. To use it, click on the thumbnail below. When the image shows up in Photobucket, clock on the little magnifying glass in the lower right corner of the image, then right-click on the image and select "Save Image as..". Then print the saved file full size.

[IMG][/IMG]

Enjoy!

Post First time poster and First DCL! Very excited!

I found this site today and am getting more excited with each post! There is a large group (appr. 50) of us coming from the US. My family is Myself, DH, DS (11).

I haven't seen anyone mention Fish Extenders. Should I be looking at a different thread?

Cheers!

Welcomedvcnewgirl has been handling this so send her a PM. I think there is about 20 cabins currently listed for this

FE UPDATE:

The cut-off deadline for FE will be JUNE 8, 2013! This gives people time to either order their FE or start making their FE. This means that JUNE 8, 2013 will be the last day that you can sign up to be a part of FE. Inevitably, someone will ask to join after that date. My usual response is: "You could join, but understand that you may not receive much in return (if anything). A lot of times people DO have extras, but NOTHING can be promised for you." Anyway.....we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

Cabin Numbers:
You may not have a cabin number as of yet. I have a handful that do not have them. You may receive your cabin number before our cruise (if so, get it to me asap), or you may not receive your cabin number before our cruise. You may have a cabin number today, but it may be changed. I will do my best to update before the cruise. I am not sure what kind of wi-fi I will get once I am in route. The wi-fi on the cruise is sometimes not the best. The best way for me to announce cabin changes on the cruise is on my cabin door. I will have a dry erase board with all cabin changes, etc. Please swing by my room and feel free to write your information on my board. There will also be pen and paper to leave me a note.

This new information will also be placed on the FE information POST: Post 363 on page 25.
As always: the link to the FE list is in my signature. Please make sure your information is correct. Thanks.

Yes, we can upgrade to a room with a porthole for another $539. DW says we'll probably get more offers before we embark.

Yes we have an offer to upgrade to an ocean view room for $579. At Disneyworld we would get offers while we were there to upgrade our room to a more desirable location, or a more upscale resort etc.

abandon ship for now..

Hello everybody,

We've decided to cancel this cruise and take on a Med cruise next summer, due to 1. a better itinerary( Venice and the Greek islands) because we've been on 2 other western med cruises already
2. the incredible price difference (yikes !) and
3. a New version of our beloved Magic after the summer...

Since we couldn't resist we are going to abandon dcl for once and try HAL for the first time this summer,doing a Norwegian fjordcruise.

Hope everybody has a lovely time, and maybe we meet again next year !

Wow, can I ask what room you originally booked? We have a gty 11b, but have been told it was $2,008 to upgrade to a 9c. This was only last week, so I would have been well miffed if we had done it.

Haven't received any offer though and wondered if maybe you have booked something different.

So sorry to hear this, we were looking forward to meeting up again. I know what you mean about the prices, especially if DCL are going to pull a trick like the one above! We had intended to book again onboard this time, so we may see you next year.

We have seen the HAL ships, one was docked right next to us in Venice a few years ago and it looked very impressive.

Enhanced Goldolier Stateroom Ears

After looking at the ears after I posted it, I decided it needed to be enhanced, so I spent the last day or so working on it. I hope you like it.

I found a better scarf to use, so I added it, and left the old scarf there as well, giving you a choice,

Link is at [IMG][/IMG].

Hi K8T,

We are booked for the July 5 2014 Cruise from Venice to the Greek Islands.
Maybe we'll see you all next year !
