After my bout with the flu, and then DW not feeling great, we started noticing that it seemed like everyone onbard was coughing. There was something definitely going around.

Maybe RCI should be forcing those antibacterial wipes on everyone like DCL does. They have the Purell dispensers everywhere, but you can't count on everyone to use them.

I definitely took advantage of the Purell dispensers often, but many of them were out, and I noticed far too many people avoiding them entirely. I prefer DCL's policy for the wipes, personally. Especially now...

What a great time our family had on the cruise! Sun, drinks, food and Caribbean water – what could be better?

We want to thank the Dreams/Podcast crew for everything they did to make this trip possible. The in-room gifts, events and dinner at Giovanni’s were fabulous. (Did I really just say fabulous?) Meeting everyone was wonderful and Patti and I look forward to seeing some (all?) of you again on another cruise or maybe an ABD trip!

Sorry it has taken me so long to come here and post. As soon as we got back we released PCC 5.0 and I have barely seen daylight since!!!!

I want to thank each and every one of you for making this cruise so amazing. I loved seeing old friends and meeting many new ones. The ship was fantastic and I thought the new events we tried on this ship went well. The size of our group made the buyout at Giovanni's possible and definitely a highlight for everyone--who knew I had mad skills as a Restaurant hostess!!!

Chris gets sea sick but was fine this sailing. I get terrible "land motion" when I return from a cruise and had none this time! Chris brought the same cold home many of you mention, I am making him keep his distance!! Apparently my slight OCD and obsession with hand washing helped me in this area...or perhaps those with colds were not in the casino!!!

The casino was good to me and I got to leave wth more money than I left them. I never did find time for a cupcake from the cupcake store or an Ice cream from the Boardwalk. I gained an appreciation for the musical Hairspray and on the last night we finally saw Vin Diesel :-)

I returned with some shiny diamonds and Chris a fancy watch. And I am the proud owner of a new Coach Bag (okay 2!).

Some of you have signed up for PCC 5.0 and I look forward to seeing you again!

I also heard from many of you that wanted to know where we could do RCCL again. Some want Alaska, others the Quantum of the Seas. I say why not both?? I can't promise they will be full DIS productions with live Podcast recordings and the whole DIS Unplugged team, but there is no reason a group of like minded people can't choose a week to sail together! I would really like to put together an Alaska group for 2015 with Royal Caribbean and if there is enough interest we can do a second sailing that year for the Quantum or another ship.

We still have some time before RCL releases the 2015 Alaska but something to keep in the back of our minds.

Thank you all again for making this cruise so wonderful. I look forward to seeing all of you again on a future sailing!!

Glad you finally got some breathing room Tracey!

Val & I booked Alaska on the Radiance for August 2014 while on board. However, if there is interest in a DIS Alaska cruise for 2015 we could be persuaded to switch.

Keep us posted!

What is the difference between a "Podcast Cruise" and a "DIS Cruise"? Is it simply one is on DCL vs. RCI?

I believe so, but Pete said on the one show he wanted to change the names. I say they call it iCruiseWithFriends.

I think DIS cruise was introduced to replace the name "Not Podcast Cruise". It was felt there needed to be a different name to differentiate between RCL and DCL.

I assume DIS cruise will stick,but you never know!!!

HeeHee Vin Diesel. My husband said he saw him. I told him no way, just a buff bald guy.

Hi, Tracey! I was booked on this cruise and then had to cancel. I never thought I would say it, but I'd be interested in a DIS cruise to Alaska in 2015. I'm sure you don't have any list started or anything, so I'll just keep watching the DISboards and listening to the DISunplugged!

It sounds like this cruise was a success. I sure hope they keep doing them, I just can't afford the Disney cruise line prices & besides, I'm Emerald level with RCCL enjoy those perks when I sail with them.

So somewhat stupid question.


Are the dreams mugs we got on the cruise dishwasher safe?

Thank you for making the cruise so wonderful! It would be really cool to do another RCCL cruise, and I've wanted to see Alaska for a long time. We'd have to go for a balcony then, for sure. Hopefully timing and pricing will work out for us to do that or the Quantum (or both)!

Hey Gang

We're going to remove this thread as a 'sticky soon so it will no longer be at the top of this board.

You can still keep the conversation going and keep the post 'alive' just know that it may not be on the first page.

Thanks
John

So... interesting turn of events for our Vin Diesel sightings. This morning, I opened up the latest US Weekly and there's a picture of Vin with his daughter at a ceremony in Hollywood. He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On August 26. When we were on the cruise. So, unless he flew home from Nassau and was gone for the day at sea, then rejoined the ship in St. Thomas, it wasn't Vin. Just an imposter. A very good-looking imposter, but an imposter none the less. And I was so excited about my star-sighting.

Well, I guess Vin has a twin! I finally ran into him (the Vin Twin) on the stairs on the last evening. He was polite when he nearly ran into me.
