We are too! Super excited, I didn't think I'd get the hubs to agree to 14 nights I sold him when I told him the 5 night Bajas were ~3300 but the 14 night EBPC was only ~6700! Plus, it will be over Halloween, I'm hoping they really live it up for Halloween on the High Seas. DH and the kids LOVE Nightmare Before Christmas and Jack Skellington, so that was a huge selling point.

I've got 3 kids, they will be 7, 4.5 and 2.5 at the time of sailing. Any other kids going to be on the cruise?

Anyone know why Costco wouldn't have this cruise on their site but all the other ones? I can still transfer it to them as the TA, right?

I'll get a roll call started!

This is only our second cruise. I'm going with my now fiancee, but he'll be my husband by the time we board! Europe will be our "real" honeymoon but since we won't be going until 2016 or 2017, we'll celebrate our marriage with this cruise.

I'm a little bummed about Galveston because I wanted to add a week at WDW after, so it'll be an extra expense we have to plan for.

Add a week at Disneyland before! Seriously, I love it more than WDW, and I grew up at WDW.

lol, I love Disneyland! But we've been lots of times and WDW only once. I want to see New Fantasyland, Christmas, and experience F&W, though since it's the last weekend, I expect it'll be a zoo. And of course, Harry Potter land, I can't wait to see Diagon Alley!

I've also booked the 5 day Baja cruise that precedes this one. So, could be 19 days of sailing for us!

The Wonder is my favorite ship...happened when they expanded Cove Cafe and added Outlook. I've cruised her to Alaska and Hawaii and am happy to be able to be back aboard her before she gets all tarted up on her 2016 dry dock. I imagine she'll be 're-imagined' like the Magic then. I know she'll be ready for refurbishment, but I'm glad to be able to enjoy a Classic one more time!

I received a booking confirmation from my TA, so now I am officially in! Wahoo! So happy to finally start the planning fun!

On this trip with me will be my DH, DS (age 4 at cruise time), and our mystery baby (due in October) who may be lucky enough to celebrate birthday number one on the cruise!

Have done multiple cruises on the Wonder, Panama Canal, Bahamas, MR, and Alaska now to take her back through the big ditch.

We are booked! But now I have a year to figure out how to write up a case study on why my kids should be allowed to miss school for 2 weeks! It will have to be approved before we can go, so I will definitely be buying trip insurance! We are excited and cannot wait to go! It will me me, DD 16 and DD 13 at time of sailing.

Well, there is certainly a lot of history involved with the canal. And there is the multi-cultural aspect of all the crew members. I remember reading about one student who did a report on 5 different crew members from 5 different countries.

Speaking of CREW.....hope we'll be sailing with Captain Fabian. He and Capt. Henry are my favorites.
