Thanks for your speedy reply! Yep, Oh La La doesn't open till 5PM, so I think we'll move our meet day to Monday, because Sunday is formal night and drinks with Captain.

I'm scared to hear about the price of the Dooney bag.....

Safe travels

Hi everyone,

I originally started this thread when I booked this cruise in February 2011. Things come up and didn't quite work out the way I planned.

Wishing everyone safe travels and have a FANTAStic time. The ship is beautiful. Take lots of pictures and please have a drink for me.

Bev aka Mickeymom923

PS If you have any questions about Puerto Rico, you can surely ask me.


Too bad you didn't zoom in on the top front of the ship. I was standing up there!!!!

Cool!!!!! We had a terrific time. And everything about the ship was wonderful. I'm actually in the process of doing a trip report about it. This was our 3rd Disney Cruise; but the first since our DD was born. Quite a different experience with a child; but still very enjoyable.

These reports are fantastic! I can't wait to get there in January on the Fantasy New Years Eve cruise.

Any reports on Scuba in San Juan. I would love to get some diving in while I am there!

Since it had been a couple of years since we were In Puerto Rico, we decided to stay in Old San Juan. We skipped the beach since we knew we were heading to Castaway, but that beach is the only beach that DH would get into when we lived in Puerto Rico. He is not comfortable being in open water, which is why he gets in the family beach when we go to castaway.

[QUOTE=mardonna;46694006]I am traveling on New Years cruise and I was told the formal night would be NYE which was different from your sailing...but everything else matched up.....I noticed they didn't offer any matinees of their shows......I was really hoping they would offer some.....[/QUOTE

They usually only offer matinees of the "new" shows. None of the big production shows are new anymore, so that's probably why no matinees. Those who cruise often, have seen them a bunch of times and don't always go to them in the evenings any more......so plenty of seating for everyone else. When there is a fairly new show out, the evening shows are PACKED and they usually offer a matinee. Just my observation.....

Thanks a ton for posting these! Is there any chance you can post the back page for every day? That is where they list the detailed character info, with many more listed than what is shown on the grid page. Would love to be able to see more of that! Thanks!

Thanks!!

Oh my goodness!! Hurry up December 15th!! I cannot wait to sail this itinerary!!! Thank you so much for all of the tips and the Navigators. It all has been very helpful in being organized so we can make the most of our trip.

I do have one more question. The Bottom Fishing excursion at Castaway Cay is booked....I booked it for my husband and my father-in-law and it looked like everything went through just fine, but as it turns out only my father-in-law has a reservation....very sad.... Anyway, I have been trying to research to see if there is a reputable place in San Juan to book a bottom fishing excursion for them on our own, as Disney does not offer a fishing excursion at any of the ports, besides Castaway Cay. I really have no idea what I am looking for and I'm a bit concerned with that type of excursion on our own.... Does anyone have any help, tips or suggestions on something like this? I would appreciate it so much!!

FYI, we took this cruise Thanksgiving week and we had matinee shows for all 3 sea days. I would definitely take advantage of them. We saw one show twice.
