Count us in...so far DW, DD (19) DS (23) and I. Cat 5E..This will be my 5th DCL cruise... Good news, I own a screen printing store, so if we want special shirts for our special cruise I can do them.

I was supposed to be doing this same cruise for 2013, but I had to bail due to the brand new business. I also opened a travel office... 13 months...but I am sure we will all make the time fly here..

Welcome coach Rick. I am sure the extra wait will be worth it! Seems we will have a big meet up group considering all of the attn this board has already gotten, always makes the time go quicker with an active meet up board!! Just put up a dcl ornament on the tree!!

This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. We did the 2 week Hawaii cruise on the Wonder in October and a 7 day also on the Wonder to the Mexican Riviera in April. This will be our first cruise out of PC and on a newer ship. I'm excited!

That makes three of us in 11C!

As far a DCL goes, the 11C is the equivalent of what we used to refer to as the "Bob Eucker" seats at the ball park! (Hoping someone here gets that reference!)
That just means we won't have to walk very far to drop goodies in your fish extender! We have cabin 2525, so one of you guys might even be our next door neighbor! IT looks to me like we have a lot of people from California in our group. For you guys, I have included this handy map!

This cruise is gonna be a blast!

We will be right across the hall from you! Hope the end cabins aren't too bad and Loud as far as close to the elevators and stairs... The nice thing is it seems pretty secluded down there with only a handful of cabins...and close access to enchanted garden! Score. I'm sure it will busy during dining times but chances are we will be dining too and not in our cabin!!!! Honestly I don't care why category cabin I am in I just want to be on the ship.

We had an 11C on the Wonder in September, and it was great. It was very quiet down there, even though we were close to the elevator. A bonus was that on the night the seas were rough, we only felt a gently swaying. The folks at our dinner table who were on the 6th and 7th floors described that night as being very unpleasant. Our waiter told us that the lower you are, the less motion you get from choppy seas, so that's a bonus they don't mention in the hype videos.

Thinking of switching to a verandah cat for this reason. We were on the Wonder to Hawaii and some days were really rough. My son got sea sick but looking at the horizon helped. Since the price difference between an inside and verandah isn't huge for the 2 of us I might switch to one. I got sick forward and had less symptoms aft and mid. I've sailed on decks 6 and 8. Hawaii was 6. I didn't spend much time on 2 but I'd like to experience it one day. Probably will on a more expensive cruise I guess. So funny because I always start out in a non-verandah and end up with one later. I'm thinking of sailing on the Dream in June after our WDW trip in an inside or if a discounted rate comes up I will book that. Since its only 4 days and only one is a sea day it might be ok.

The reduced motion was def. a selling point when i was telling the bf all about it, and the location. I get sea sick really easily!! (Think a floatable raft on a lake!!!). Only thing that works for me is the patch... But being down low will certainly help with the motion.

I'm so glad there are a lot of people who are just as excited as I am! Thus will be our first trip on the big ship. We were on the wonder in September to Alaska and it was great! I can't wait for another cruise experience.

For those if you who don't know about the fish extender and all it entails... Please do not hesitate to ask. There are more than enough of us who have participated in the past who can easily share what knowledge we have.

As the cruise gets closer ill start compiling info for everyone who wishes to participate. Once finished about 3-4 weeks prior to our cruise I'll send out a spreadsheet so we can all get a glance at how many people we have participating.

Happy planning everyone!!!!

This will be our first cruise, but I've heard about FEs, traveling with two DDs (8 & 9), definitely think they'll love them!! Any info will be appreciated!
