I am so thankful I was just browsing the site when I did, I dont think this cruise was posted too long ago, I think it will fill up quickly. Glad we got our room booked!
I hope it's pretty nice, but it's the tail end of hurricane season so I think anything could happen.

How was Atlantis? I really wanted to do that last cruise but ended up staying on the ship.

Welcome everyone!

I updated the first post with info. Please let me know if anything is incorrect.

We just got our documents yesterday for our 10/20/12 Fantasy cruise and they just emailed saying they were doing trick or treating for the kiddos and costume contest for the adults. I'll make sure to save everything from the cruise to share when we get back! We cruised 2 other times at Halloween time and they did the same thing (although I heard they didn't do anything last year).

The weather in October is wonderful- warm enough to swim and play but I usually have to throw in a long sleeve tee and a pullover for the evenings- especially on deck.

Woohoo, it's official!

Our first cruise will be this one.

It will be me, DH, twin 19 year old daughter and son, and 7 year old son.

Now how am I supposed to wait over a year?

Hello!
Atlantis was awesome (minus the burning hot concrete that you had to walk on at the end of August). We really enjoyed it, and one of the reasons we wanted to book this cruise was so that we could take the kids there for the day (will also give us a chance to see if it's a good fit for us for a vacation in future). The only thing is that it is expensive - like $6-7 for an ice cream cone (or at least it was back then)...will be interesting to see how much it is to grab quick service lunch for 5!! Haha!


Thanks for the info re: weather and Halloween - the kids will be SO excited if they can trick or treat during the cruise. We all got dressed up for pirate night last time (wigs, boots...head to toe!)...may have as much luggage for costumes as we do for clothing! haha! As for the weather, I suppose it's all relative. We laughed so hard the first time we went to CC - it was February, and you could pretty much tell where everyone was from by whether or not they were in the water. Those from the southern states were sitting in chairs/talking about how cold the water was...the Canadians (us included) were in the water the whole day, and were so excited about how warm the water was! Some of you will be packing sweaters for the evenings, and we'll be sweating to death (it is entirely possible that it could be snowing at home by then)!

We saw the other day that our cruise might be the first one post-extended dry dock...will be neat to be the first to see the changes (if any). If anything, guess we know it will be in top shape and super clean for our cruise.

Yes, it looks like the Magic will be dry docked for at least a month and this will be the first cruise afterward. Really looking forward to this

My mind is torn between Atlantis and the sealion excursion. Lots of time to decide though.

We're all booked for this one, our 4th cruise, and 3rd time on the Magic! In addition to my DW and MIL it will be our 2 boys who will be 8 and 6 and our daughter who will be 4. We actually prefer the Magic to the Dream. We much prefer the kids club facilities on the Magic and for some reason the smaller ship just feels more comfortable. This will also be our second time doing the double dip. We can't wait! Hopefully there will be time for us to do a Not So Scary Halloween Party at the World before or after the cruise too.

Welcome!!! I'm glad to hear your thoughts on the Magic, I'm very excited to see the differences.

Why do you like the Magic better for the kid's club?


P.s. Looks like a lot of us have kids in the same age range. Mine will be 7 when we sail.

We like the play structure that they have on the Magic. Even though the space there is smaller the play area feels better. My kdis prefer it too. On our recent cruise (5 day Canada cruise this past July on the Magic) our oldest (7) spent more time in the lab. He much preferred it there as I guess he had grown out of the play structure. On the last night we had to drag him out of the club at 11pm because he refused to leave.

The other thing we noticed is that on the Magic the kids did a little show for us in the theatre but they didn't do that on the Dream.

Does anyone know when they will announce what is going to be done on the dry dock?

I'm guessing to inaugurate the new stuff from dry dock?!? Not sure on that one. When you saw that "inaugural cruise" what did it reference? Now I'm curious.
