I don't think there has been a meet set up for this cruise yet, but if you click on the link on page one where the FE updated list is it will explan all about FE and how it works. It really is a lot of fun. Hope you'll want to participate! Let me know if you can't find it. Just scroll down on page one until you see my post on FE List.

Has anyone been on a cruise during this time? Is the ship busy? I recently booked this one, and after having done the Dream this past June I'm ready for less people

The weather can be hit or miss. We have been when it was nice and warm and we have also been when leaving port was rainy cold and windy

My husband dives often in Nassau with no issues. You can type in water temp for Nassau and it comes up with averages.
The ship can be full at this time of year with the decorations but remember it isn't the size of the Dream or Fantasy. Therefore less folks.

Just remember that any day on a Disney cruise is better than being at work. Cold, hot, windy...

We went the same week last year and it was the best! We were concerned about the weather but turned out to be fabulous. Even if you book in spring and summer, you never know what the weather can do. Either way its going to be a good time!

I've never been during summer so can't compare but it didn't seem overcrowded to me any time b/c it's so close to holidays that many people don't want to take kids out. I'm looking forward to less crowded just bc it's a smaller ship vs Dream we've experienced last two times.

My window opened today, and I snagged #7, which is by chance is the great location we had last cruise. All the cabanas are now gone. I think ours and SB 20 were available at midnight. Last cruise (on Dream), there were about 7 available at gold window but not this time on smaller ship. It is certainly the one perk I treat myself to now.

I also saw Cabana #7 and the Serenity Bay cabana when I logged on, but it was gone when I clicked it

I'm hoping if someone on our cruise ends up cancelling their family beach cabana to maybe PM me before they do so so I can try to book it. Thanks!

My family and I got a cabana when I was on the dream in June. My dad religiously checked their status' and sometimes when he clicked on an open one it really wouldn't be. The SB one we snagged was less than a month to sailing...we think they 'held back' some of them (cause online they were 'all booked' but the last 2 on SB were empty...)
--so try closer-to maybe?

Yea, both #7 & #9 were available, and it even showed up as "All day" when I clicked it. But it kept saying that it became unavailable as I was checking even though I could see it for 5 minutes. Oh well.

I'll keep trying.

Okay, so as a newbie to the DIS boards, and the concept of FEs...I was curious: doesn't doing them take up a decent part of your cruise? Like going to all the rooms that sign up and making the stuff? Idk I'm not signed up on ours (not sure if I will) I'm just trying to grasp this whole thing. **i have no kids, if that makes a difference**

It took my husband and daughter about an hour to do 20 staterooms on our last cruise. He divided it up by floors and they just walked from deck 2 to deck 7.

It took much longer to create/make/collect all our gifts (months and months).

YEAH!!!

How funny we loved number 8 cabana so much we get it every time too! We went out on a limb to try the cabana the first time and loved it so much it's a must do now.

I'll PM you about meeting up as soon as we get there. I think the kids haveing a friend is going to work great.

Same here, it takes time if your trying to make something personal to give out, but we delivered about 16 on our last cruise and took no more then an hour. Once you do it, you will always want to do it.
