Thanks for the pics of the ruins! Looks awesome.


In terms of noro...I haven't thought about it any more than any other time I travel. My attack against noro is great hand hygiene :-) I also boost up on vitamins when I travel (emergen-c, or airborne) and wipe down the stateroom and airplane tray table with Clorox wipes to ensure a fresh clean bad germ free surface. The best thing to combat noro is hand hygiene though... Before eating, before going through the buffet and immediately free touching all those spoons! After the bathroom, and any other time you touch a railing a bar, etc. that hand sanitizer gel will be my bet friend...(how prominent are those gels on DCL?) are they just at the dining locations, or are they in the elevators etc?

Been thinking about booking concierge again because I've decided I want a cabana. I hear they are almost impossible to get after 120 days. Anyone booking concierge?

Looks like the ones on the adult beach are $399 and the ones on the family beach are $499.

I'm not sure when I'd do a FL cruise again. The 3 and 4 nights don't seem as worth it. If I love the Fantasy I guess I'll be back but I'm interested in more interesting ports. The Caribbean ones don't do much for me. So I'm going to take advantage of this relatively cheap concierge and go for it. My next cruises will be Alaska and maybe a Med and no way could I afford concierge on those. Besides I won't want it on a classic ship anyway I don't think. I don't know. I might get spoiled, lol!

Count us in ! We actually booked while still on the Jan 12th Eastern cruise this year ... Couldn't face the idea of doing anything else for our next vacation !
My partner and I are Swiss and Belgian respectively but we've been living in the UK for more than 10 years.
I will celebrate my 40th on the ship on the Costa Maya day.
We decided to go for a balcony stateroom this time so will be on Deck 6.
We will then spend another week in WDW before heading back home ...
Can't believe we still have over 340 days to go !!

Four of us just booked on this cruise. Our two children will be 8 and 6.

We took the Fantasy last year on the 7 day Eastern Caribbean and wanted to do the Western too!

Don't remember the stateroom # but if we do the FE, I'll post later. We did book concierge on Deck 12.
