Hey Mary and Danielle,
Glad I found you! No hubby wasn't too upset. He knew he couldn't get all the way to Dec, but was hoping til summer before he had to tell me. LOL! We have done the fish extender on both our cruises, hubby is not as into them as I am mostly because it seems the ones we have been on have been walking all over the ship from bottom to top and he feels like the time could be better spent... enjoying the cruise. I enjoy doing them and seeing what I get. I think at this point I will hold off, just because I can't start working on them in front of the kids and with the August sail may wait and see what I decide on that one. We are using the Dec cruise together to soften the blow when we tell them we are going alone again in August. May need that FE as additional leverage.

We will be celebrating my birthday on the cruise. I am a New Years Eve baby! Can't wait to see what Disney has in store for us on that special night. Have either of you cruised in Dec? Our Jan DVC member cruise last month was warm and sunny, but alot of people said that was not typical. Just curious.

I also like to hook my kids up with others, that is why I put their info on my last post. Our first family cruise, we had skyped with several kids before the cruise which then made it easier for them to run off and go to the pool or club with little coaxing. Which in turn made my cruise better too

Have either of you been off in Nassau? I did a Carnival cruise years ago and thought it was dirty and sad...we may just stay on the boat til Castaway (which by the way is where Lexi wants to live!)

Does that mean you will be on our cruise, or that you are just trying to build up your number of postings? :-)

Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to say we (myself and Ds who will be 11) are joining you all on this cruise. We have sailed all of the ships except the Magic. I had already booked the Magic Christmas Cruise (12/22), but got the brilliant idea to just change it to a B2B2B I have my request sent into DU, attempting to keep the same room for all 3 cruises, so as soon as I get the info back I'll be onboard lol.

We're only doing two cruises, the New Year's Eve cruise and the one immediately following on Jan 2, but other than that our stories are quite similar. After next month we will have sailed on all the ships except the Magic, and we booked the New Years cruise on the Magic specifically for that reason. We are headed for the Western Caribbean on the Fantasy on May 11 (and I see you are doing the same a week after we get back :-), and after that cruise and the New Year's B2B cruise, we will not only have sailed on all four ships,but will be only 3 cruises away from Platinum :-)

Let us know when you are sure you are joining us. I hope it all works out the way you want it to!

Mary

I booked the Christmas cruise so that we could sail on the Magic as it seems to like to head to Europe when my son is out of school. I'm hoping my agent at DU gets back to me in the morning since as of right now my room on the first cruise is available on the other 2. We will reach Platinum after our Fantasy cruise in May of next year (unless I find a way to sneak any more in this year lol). The funny thing is that when we took the Wonder in 2006 we didn't figure we would even get to Gold, well cruise #2 was March of 2012, and we are Gold already (busy cruising year) lol!

Yes, I know the feeling. We took our first cruise in August of 2008 when I retired, thinking it would be a once in a lifetime thing. It took us a year or so to realize that this was going to become something very regular in our lives :-) We had a cruise planned for last Oct. but had some issues which made it impossible for us to go, so instead of already being gold, we have to wait until next month :-) We actually have one more cruise booked (the cruise to nowhere in May of 2014), and are planning to book the Panama Canal for May 2014 when we get onboard ship next month. It becomes an obsession after awhile :-) but I do have to say that I enjoy knowing what trips we will take for over a year out. We are very excited that it will be only 7 months after our West Caribbean cruise before we will get to be on the Magic and fulfill another bucket list item...New Years on a Disney Cruise :-)

I noticed you travel with your 11 year old son. I wish I had started cruising with my kids when they were young. My husband won't go with me, so now I travel with my daughter. We have become great travel buddies She is a bit more than 11 (she's 42),but she loves cruising with Disney as much as I do. We are taking my little brother (he's 56 :-) with us on the New Year' cruise, and that will be the first time we have not gone by ourselves.

Well I haven't gotten the deposit info yet, but I was able to secure the same room for all 3 cruises. Disney is apparently a little behind on confirmation emails, so later today it should be official. I was worried how my son would like the Magic after being on the Dream and Fantasy, but he enthusiastically agreed to the B2B2B ( he says he's going to relax the whole time lol). The child is 10 right now and has 9 cruises under his belt ( a few on Carnival) so you can see how rough he has it! I lost my husband to cancer 10 months ago and cruising was something we all loved to do, so we've went a little overboard on cruises this year. Lol when these are official I will have a total of 6 current reservations as I am taking my stepson and his family on our cruise this May (my younger son doesn't know they are going and he will turn 11 on the cruise).

And the Panama Canal is definitely on my bucket list, however it conflicts with sons school schedule so that won't happen for awhile

I am sorry for your loss. That must be really difficult. Crusing sounds like great therapy to me, though, enjoying what you all loved to do together.

What stateroom will you be in, and are you doing the same two we are...New Years and Jan 2?

I have one of the secret verandah rooms for all 3 cruises ( 7620 ), I will only be on one cruise with you though . It starts with the Christmas cruise on 12/22 and they will kick us off on 01/02 lol. I finally got all of my info so it is now official! I had already booked the airfare so I changed it last night knowing that even if I had to change my original stateroom we were going to do this. I was too scared to wait the 50 days to book them when we are on the Fantasy lol.
