I saw that too. We are undecided on what we are doing, but it is helpful to know it won't be busy.

We are bringing our granddaughters who are six and four. We are all so excited for this cruise. Our first Disney cruise with children, we have sailed twice on Disney but without kids. This will be a whole different experience for us. Sherry

Thanks. I was in charge of the FE list on our Wonder NYE cruise back in 2010/2011 and we had a good crowd on it also, so I have had practice.

I really enjoy it. This is the first time I have done it on the Google doc, but the girl that did it for our last cruise used it so I thought I would give it a try.

I am also in charge of the FE list and activities for our Panama Canal cruise in September.

As long as you keep up with the link anytime you look at it, any updates I put on it will show up for you.

That's wonderful Sherry! I'm sure we will see you guys at the Adventure Club!
This is our first cruise with kids as well and it will be a new experience for us too.

Have you figured this out yet? You could do a scavenger hunt through the house that maybe leads them to clues that would make them think of a cruise, maybe Disney shirts - then sunscreen - a boat of some sort and then end up at their suitcase with boarding passes for the cruise. You could put something together that says Disney Cruise Boarding Pass with their names and the date of the cruise.....

I made mock boarding passes for my daughter and her cousins when we were going to WDW for my daughters 10th birthday. I printed them on cardstock paper - nothing too fancy but they got the idea.

Good luck keeping the secret - it is really fun to do - but really hard at the same time!

Onboard booking

Has anyone booked another cruise while onboard?? If I have read correctly you get 10% off the cruise you book AND an OBC. How much is the credit?

I plan on booking another cruise.. Hubby doesn't know yet though lol

Booking onboard

We did not book on our last cruise. They were offering 10% off most cruises and 20% off some cruises out of Galveston. They were not able to do the kids sail free discounts on the quotes they gave me so I did not book. I think there is a method to booking a cruise on a cruise and it still confuses me because I have done better waiting for "special offers ". Sherry

Hints

Just thought of a few more hints to new cruisers.
1. Take a highlighter so when you get the Navigator for the days activities you can highlight what you want to do.
2. We take small post it notes so we can leave each other a note as to where we are on the ship.
That's all I can think of now. Just put those in my cruise packing pile. Sherry

Aha, forget # 1. That is an idea for me to give everyone on our first day for an Fe. Sherry
