We love Disney entertainment, and we were more than pleased with the accommodations, the food and the service on board. Looking forward to booking some shore excursions. too. My husband thinks that ziplining will be right up my alley..... I think NOT, but who knows?

Anybody else booked on Deck #6?

Karen (aka AlexaJane)
Yep We are on deck 6, #6088

Ed and I are in 6132. Our last cruise was with our children and our grandchildren. This one will be much different... cruising with nobody we know. We're signed up for main dining, but with all the extra daylight, we might switch to the second seating.

Coming from Maine, we probably have most of the clothes we'll need. We're very used to dressing in layers. We just have to spend some time choosing shore excursions.

We're very much looking forward to this cruise!

Karen

Booking Angst

After a bout of teeth gnashing and hand wringing, I've finally settled in on this cruise. The way I look at it, I've already "saved" $200, as my room is now listed as $200 more than it was when I booked. It's a little disconcerting to see the prices fluctuating as the cruises and/or stateroom categories fill up. I guess it's best just to stick with what we originally decided on and not second guess ourselves.

I can't believe I'm the only person who's going through the emotional swings and stress of trip planning. We aren't rich, and if we make a mistake when spending $5,000+ it's going to really hurt! That's the main reason we stuck with DCL rather than "jumping ship" and booking with Celebrity or Princess, even though we could've saved money with either of them, and gotten upgraded rooms to boot. We know what we're getting with DCL, and it's top-notch. Time to stop second guessing and just look forward to a WONDERful vacation!

Karen

We just booked this cruise. We had to change from the Mediterranean with Greece cruise, couldn't get the time off. But we're very happy to be sailing on another fantastic itinerary with DCL. We are Brian (41) Marsha (43) DS Duffy (3) and DD Shellie May (2), yes the kids are actually bears!
