I am wondering just how crowded this boat is...maybe it wont be as crowded as we think.

Also, is anyone else a bit OCD about the kids getting sick before or during the trip? we have had a sick Nov. /Dec with stomach flu, head cold and fever virus...i hope our immune systems are good and strong after fighting all this off over the last two months.

I am totally paranoid! The flu is running rampant around here. We've had our flu shots but people are getting the flu even after having been vaccinated. We have not had the stomach virus yet so that makes me nervous too. Yikes!! And our dds go back to school Monday.

We are paranoid too, but we were all sick earlier so fingers crossed! I kept meaning to get us in for flu shots but I don't know where the time went. DD isn't in school yet, but the kids at et day home go back Monday, so hopefully they don't bring stuff back!

I think the ship is pretty full. Still, all the reviews I've read say that with the smaller ships even sold out cruises don't feel like it. Everyone is so spread out. It should be okay.

I'm not even thinking about being sick. Ugh!

Just found this, going on this cruise, would love to connect!

Hi Everyone, I just found this board and would love to connect on Facebook. I know I am super late. Any families out there going with girls? Mine are 12 and turning 6 that week of the cruise.

Thanks,
Ashlee

Please forgive me if I am not doing this right, like I said first time here

Thanks!

Nikki, I just found this website and we have daughters about the same age who will be looking for friends. One is Addison, 12 and the other (Aubree) will be turning 6 on the 23rd. Maybe they can meet up?

SweetPea, I posted about the meet and shipping FE's on FB. I would have let you know sooner but I forgot my login to the boards. lol
As far as I know, there are no other meets besides the one you set up.

Hi! We are flying in to Hobby the night before the cruise then taking a hotel shuttle back to Hobby for the Disney transfer. Anyone know where we are supposed to go? I think they told us to go to baggage claim and a representative would meet us there. They seemed a little confused which made me nervous. Anyone else doing this? Getting so excited for our girls only cruise. We've been to Disneyworld several times but this is the first cruise for all of us! Any help or tips would be appreciated!

Thanks from our family of 4

We are doing the same thing your family is doing and I also heard we were to meet at baggage claim. If you hear anything different, will you please post? I will do the same. Thx! Our cruise will be here soon!!!

Harbour House Meet

We had discussed earlier (here or Facebook) having a meet at Harbour House the night before. We will have about 8 hrs of driving on Thursday so I don't know what time we will arrive at the Hotel. Does everyone want to shoot for around 6pm in the lobby or should we allow more time for dinner? We could also do before dinner and could go as a group for dinner. What does everyone think?

The meet is very informal at best. All we have planned so far is to meet up in the Promenade Lounge at 3:00 on embarkation day to be able to introduce ourselves and put some faces with names. You're welcome to come along!

Thanks! I appreciate it. Is anyone else interested in setting up a few tentative meets maybe on at-sea days? On our last Magic cruise we did a pre-lunch meet on an at-sea day so everyone could go to lunch together or split into 2 groups for lunch (one going to the sit-down & the other to Topsiders for the buffet). We didn't make it to that meet personally but I thought it was a good idea.

Someone mentioned over on facebook that they have juices other than orange and apple that they used for mixed drinks. Can anyone with past Disney experience confirm this?

I've not paid attention to the juice for mixers. I mix sweet tea vodka with tea, coconut rum with diet coke, & the hubby mixes his Crown with diet coke.
