When we saw it listed this time, we decided to call DCL and inquire.

She said that the only way to know what would be offered was to be paid in full and open to book.

I thought that I might call back and check again...
Oh ok! Each cruise I've been on had the excursions listed on the site available. Why wouldn't they offer them all?

Need the Caribbean!

So it is 12 this morning!!! Last year on the first day of spring it was 85, yesterday we got up to 25! I live near Chicago. So, luv2 and Bonnie, I would LOVE TO live in CA!!!! In fact, I was born there and it was always "home" as I was raised overseas. So anyway, the weather is wicked in the Midwest and the East right now.

In Feb we did the Tacos and Tequila excursion in Cozumel and Stingray City in Grand Cayman. The Cozumel excursion was laid back and pleasant, glad to have done it - but will try something else next time. Stingray City was a great boat - great crew, but the population of stingrays is way down - perhaps a 10th of the number since the last time we were there about 10 years ago. Quite a shame because they are wonderful creatures. If I do that one again I will do it combined with Rum Point. Bob is not a water person nor a drinker - not sure what we will do - since I enjoy drinking and snorkeling!!! Ruins perhaps, Segway tours.

Just got off work and didn't manage to get a call in to Disney....will try again in the morning. I know that I have enough time to figure this out, that is for sure.

Second day of spring and it is high 20's here...I could really go for the drink of the day and a lounge chair in the Caribbean sun right about now!

So I went to the port adventures section on the website and there's only one port adventure for Costa Maya listed! What the heck? There's no ruins listed. Think the website is just messing up?

Same with Virgin America. I called them and they said 6 months. So glad to be able to use pints for one ticket!

Hello everyone - we just booked this cruise.......thought it might be a little less crowded than the New Year's one This will be our 9th DCL Cruise......and our 2nd Western Caribbean......looking forward to doing something different on the excursions when we get to ports!

It will be myself, my DH (EjeG on the DIS), and our DS (13) and DD (10) - looks like a fun group, and will have to try to catch up on the thread when I get a spare few minutes!

Just booked ...

Hello to all fellow cruisers.

We just booked our Christmas 2013 holiday. Canberra (capital of Australia) to Houston for Christmas to surprise my parents who will be on a house exchange in Galveston TX (don't tell!), and then a drive across through Louisiana, Georgia and Florida to the cruise. Any suggestions for routes and particular sights to see would be greatly appreciated.

This is our second cruise. We saw in the 2012 New Year on 'Double Dip' Dream and loved it. Keen also to participate again in the FE.

From Orlando we will then fly to Hawaii for a week and then on home.

Looking forward to seeing all/some of you on the cruise.

Jeremy, Andreana, Geordie (9) and Finn (6).

Not sure if I have posted here yet, but we are a family of 4 and booked on this cruise! We did the 7 night Eastern Cruise last year on the Fantasy and (of course) wanted to follow up with this one!
