Since I figure our thread will be closed shortly, I decided to go ahead and start a new one.

So, please continue, Everyone.

Joining in. Trying to decide if I should change the cruise I booked on board to the 5 night or keep the 7 Western. I am not thrilled with the Costa Maya addition instead of Key West, however, now that I had a taste of all of the special menus...I don't know that I want to switch.

Hi, Kim. It sure was nice meeting you.

I have not been on either a 5-day cruise or the 7-day Western. The only reason I would pick a 5-day over a 7-day Disney cruise would be to if the 5-day had a double dip at Castaway Cay. I am mentally still there.

But, I do love a 7-day cruise. Don't know if I can do anything less unless there were a 2 day stay at Castaway Cay. But, then I already said that, didn't I?

Did I mention that I LOVED Castaway Cay?

Anyway, hope that helps.

It is a double dip CC. I feel the same about it. Hands down, favorite stop.

Hey Kim, I love the idea of a double dip. Just wanted to say that my husband cruised last year to Costa Maya and I signed him up for this excursion. They enjoyed it said the lagoon Azul was really nice

Yes, Kevin, indeed this was without a doubt the best cruise ever. It was such a pleasure meeting everyone.

I will definitely be checking out the photos and adding my few. Not much of a picture taker. I can't wait to relive some of the moments on the ship.

Well then, I think that I would choose the 5-day. I enjoy some of the ports but I don't really do much in them. But now Castaway Cay, that is another story. I could spend a few days there.

I guess it would come down to cost and time of year.

Keep us posted.

Yes, we booked a dummy cruise. Waiting for the 2012 itineraries to come out. I would love to do the Eastern again because I really enjoyed those sea days, too.

We're on the Mex. Riviera on 10-23-11 and just looked at the itinerary - 3 ports 3 days in a row, with 3 sea days.

Again, it was great meeting those I met last week.

Cruise Thanks

All,
Thank you for making this cruise so wonderful. We enjoyed meeting all of you and are looking forward to cruising again. Tammy loved the FE, and can't wait to participate again . She did want to pass on to everyone, that if you got a ghost the heat in the luggage effected the glue and ours came apart, so a little dab of fabric glue will keep it together.
