We went March 2011 and the weather was beautiful. We didn't have any rain, but you never know! Welcome!

Gone twice during March, great weather both times. Some people thought the water at CC was cool, we swam both trips and it was fine!

We are also planning on booking our next cruise while on board! Just waiting for 2014 dates to be released so we have an idea where we would like to go.

Booking for 2014

That is nice, do they give a discount if you book while on the cruise? Any ideas if this cruise date March 10, 2013 will be a sold out cruise?

Generally, you get a 10% re-booking discount. If you are thinking about it, go as soon as you get on board and have an idea about your dates and the cruises you want to consider. It cuts down on the amount of time you have to wait in line.

We were on this same cruise almost two years ago (Spring Break for most TX schools for sure), and I'm sure it did sell out, but we never really felt it.

10 percent discount, sometimes 1/2 deposit down with booking and also an onboard credit of $100.00 and up depending on how long of cruise.

You would bring one item per stateroom. You would only deliver the one time. It doesn't seem to be a big group thus far so I'm not sure it will take alot of room. Guess it depends on what you decide to bring.

Let me know if you want me to add you to the list

Gina...sorry but I just want to clarify ONE item per stateroom VS per person int the stateroom?? Sorry for all the questions. Can you give this "Fish Extender Virgin" an idea of what sorts of items people give?? And so we pick the day??

I haven't been on this thread too much. It just seems life is so busy. BUT I am so excited for our cruise. This will be my family's 3rd Disney cruise. But, the first time we will be actually doing something in port at Nassau...haha. The first time we got off the ship for one photo only. We wanted to enjoy the ships amenities while it was not so busy. The second time, we ventured in a bit farther..haha did the Straw Market(which we did not love at all.) This time, we are planning on doing an excursion. Have any of you done the Discover Atlantis one?? I thought it would be good because it is not too long and still time to enjoy the ship with less crowds. Feedback? or other suggestions? Our son will be staying onboard..7year old. He will do the club. It will be my hubby and I and 2 teens.
Also is there going to be a meet?

Yes. I agree to having the FE per stateroom, not per person. Some people like to get items specific to their state or country. I have received personalized pencils, tattoos, stickers, pirate items, candy, blow up balls, homemade items, scrap booking pages, beads, notepads, keychains, lanyards, etc etc. you don't have to spend a fortune. Bulk party stores and dollar stores are the best place to find treasures. Good luck!!

Hi All!

The months are just flying by and with the cooler temps hitting NH...I'm really thinking more about our cruise!

Any of you have DDs who will be 15 or 16 on our cruise? I can't keep straight who is what age now and who will be what age on our cruise. My DD will be turning 16 on our cruise. Before our last cruise, she really enjoyed 'meeting' some fellow teens before the cruise on Facebook and then had them to pal around with a bit on the ship. Let me know and we can get them connected and give them something help pass the winter days heading up to our cruise.

As for FEs- I think we should leave it up to the givers whether it is one single gift for the stateroom or individual things. I've received a mix of both types on my last cruises and appreciate all of them. I would agree that one visit to each FE is all that is needed- not daily.

Hope everybody is having a nice fall!

Liz

Hey Liz.

Great point, that makes sense. I am always appreciative of the fe's so we will leave it to the giver.

We haven't discussed this yet, but I was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. We may not end up going on the cruise as it will depend on finances and my husband's vacation time. I'm hoping that we'll be able to meet you all though!
