Day 1 at 7:30pm in 687 Pub, deck 4 aft
or
Day 2 at 9:30am at Mickey's Pool, deck 11 mid

The pro of doing it on the first day is that the kids can make friends right away, and then hang out together in the clubs at night. The lifeboat drill is at 4pm and sail away party is at 4:30pm. The evening shows are 6:15pm and 8:30pm, so it looks like there's about an hour between dining and the shows.

Im cool with meeting up on the 1st day! My daughter is an only child so if she can make some friends that would be awesome!!!
First day sounds good to us.

Kevin

My daughter worked on the fish extender gifts for the kids for hours last night. She is so excited and this particular item is made with love by my sweet 8 year old!

I am working on my FE Gift as I type almost done and we are taking it in our carrying as well and our gifts. I am so excited! I apologize our pockets are small but there is one for each of the girls and 1 for the adults to share.

Our FE gifts are all organized and ready! I put stickers on each item with the cabin # and recipient's name, so it doesn't matter if you don't have separate pouches for each person. DD just needs to add our cabin number to our FE and we're ready to go.

My sister was in Norwegian's private Bahamas island yesterday and said it was sunny and the water was cool when you first went in, but then you got used to it.

We just booked the other day (so hopefully cruise will not be too full) this is my 12th cruise but since i just booked, we missed the fe deadline we are in room 9096 with a 5 year old boy and my inlaws are in room 2011 with a 9 year old boy and 12 year old girl. They have never been cruising and we are doing the fish extenders with them, but if you have anything extra at all that u could possibly give, im sure we would all be so greatful. The story about your boy probably dressing up in the kids club sound so like us. My son does the same.

Even though all of our NH neighbors and friends are OK that ran in or watched the Boston Marathon, today's events sure have sucked the pre-vacation excitement right away.

Feeling very sad for all of the folks that were as excited about the Marathon as we were about our first cruise, only to have it go tragically wrong.

The world is a different place than when most of us grew up - both better and worse. The day starting off beautifully, with the Red Sox win and all the players wearing Jackie Robinson's number. My stepson lives/works in the city and was safe, but couldn't call us for quite a while. We'll enjoy and appreciate our time on the Dream even more now...

If you are a DVC member, the DVC private party with free goodies will be on Sunday at 2:30pm in the D Lounge! Munchies, free hats, maybe win $200 onboard credit.
