I'm in too. I was on the 24/08 sailing, but in sister is getting married on that date, so changed it again.

There will be me, DH and DS who will be 14 at the time of sailing. We went on this cruise before and did all of the trips on our own, so will be able to help anyone in that department.

This is our second cruise.

As are from the UK. I will post a planning thread I started later on here.

I'm hoping to add on a few days post cruise, but it depends on cost.

still waiting to see if I can have this week off for the cruise.

not too sure if we will wind up doing this or not. just booked a Hawaiian inter island cruise for april 2013 and not sure about doing europe just four months after that. although I really want to do this itinerary, not sure if the kids are going to really be into this type of touring vacation ... tough call

I didn't get the week I wanted in August to make this cruise happen.

I have to find something else on DCL as its a non refundable deposit. I really hate that regarding DCL booking policies. C'est la vie.

Oh that's a shame, why is the deposit non-refundable?

Deposit is for a concierge one bedroom suite. It's an extra wide midship one too, 8532. I have to move it to another cruise before final payment due. Maybe they will do Med again in 2014.

We have some great non DCL options for 2013: April Hawaii 7 day inter island cruise on NCL Pride of America and/or a July 10 day Celebrity eastern med/greek isles cruise starting in Rome and ending in Venice. I put deposits on these .. REFUNDABLE of course ....

ABD Add On?

Is anybody doing the Adventures by Disney add on? There's a 3night stay before the cruise in Barcelona or a 7day add on package. Price isn't that bad but since I bought through DVC, I have to pay it all up front for my family of four. Whew!

I had booked the cruise on points with DVC so any add ons or modification have to be thru DVC. There is a 3day Barcelona stay before the 7night cruise.

For those wanting to go to Paris .. just wander .. don't pay out for ABD!

Fly direct into Paris, get the underground to DisneyLand Paris (DLP), Eiffel Tower, Riverboat cruises .... to name but a few. It's so easy to get around.

Or, fly into London (Gatwick or Heathrow), then get the Eurostar from London all the way to Paris .. it s passenger train which goes under the channel .. very fast and very comfortable.

Use your DVC points to stay at DLP perhaps?

We're also on this cruise .. have cruised Disney in the Med in 2010, 2011 and now 2013.

One more tip ..... last year, I organised a private tour of Rome. The company I used was recommended by the DVC staff as they had been on a Med cruise a few months previously. They were fantastic ... we had 42 in the end, toured in 7 seater luxury mini vans, got dropped off at the door of each attraction and had the best day ever. Find them here ... www.yourtourinitaly.com ... the owner is called Aldo.

I can't get on here much due to my work being busy, but I'll pop on as much as I can to see if anyone needs help. I'm pretty sure Heather will help too ... 2 Brits who can hopefully help out a little!!

Best wishes

Joa

hello

We are a family of 5 (three kids 10 and under) going on the 8/10 cruise. We are considering a few in Paris prior to the cruise. Anyone familiar with tour companies/guides that would be a good choice with kids. ABD options sound fun but are too cost prohibitive

We just booked this cruise when on our Disney Alaska Cruise last month! So excited! We are going to have a large group of extended family, i think 21 in all!

This will be my 3rd cruise with Disney and my husband's first cruise ever! We are going to have 2 young kids with us and the rest of the group is going to be 17+.

We are going to be exploring Europe more when we are there. Have not decide where or before or after yet.

We are going to have a large group of us in that age range (6 in all, ages 17-23). They love talking to / meeting new people on the cruise. I really can't talk for them, but they might want to meet up with your group.

I'm considering this cruise although I really wanted to go to Venice again - went years ago on an ABD and loved it! But I know if I do a Disney cruise we'll be so happy! Can't decide. Whatever we do, it will be me, DH, DD15 and DD14 (by next year).
