March 2nd, 2014 ~ Disney Dream Bahamas Cruise Meet Thread ~

Hello DREAM cruisers!

We just booked another cruise on the Disney DREAM and hope that there will be many DISers that join us!

I know it's early, but I would like to start a Fish Extender Exchange. We have participated in it on previous cruise and it is so much fun! I hope many of you will join in.

Looking forward to getting to know many of our fellow cruisers!

Cruisers so far:

Blanche_Neige (Marianne)

I would also like to host a Fish Extender Exchange. We have done it every cruise, it is SO much fun and I hope many of you will join in.

Happy to see I won't be sailing alone Kids would of been very disappointed if there was no FE, it add more magic to the cruise.

I guess we will have to wait a little more for others to join in the we will start making a list.

Marianne,

Have a great time at Disneyland. I have never been before. Since I live 1 1/2 hr from Disney Orlando, we go there. Well, have a great time.

Trying my countdown for the first time.

You are so lucky to be so close to WDW

Welcome Julie!

Had not even thought about that. I will be sure to bring my beads!!!!

Was last week your first Dream Cruise? Fill us in on how it was. Did you participate in FE? How many participated?

What was your #1 favorite thing and what was your least favorite experience?

Laura

Thank you both for welcoming me!

Yes, this sailing will be during our Mardi Gras vacation. It was fun during last weeks sailing to have so many from Southern Louisiana on board. Not obnoxious , but rather a nice comradery. We decorated our door & ourselves with beads, & handed some out to others.

This was our first Dream sailing. We had previously sailed the Wonder in 2008. Having sailed other cruise lines as well, I would have to say one of the most enjoyable things about the cruise was how every CM was so first class. Always acknowledging you, offering assistance, going out of their way to have conversation. Of course we loved the AquaDuck & Castaway Cay. We had beautiful weather. We went to Atlantis in Nassau. It was enjoyable, but not something I would pay those big bucks for to go again.

We did not participate in this sailings FE. There was just to much going on leading up to the cruise to organize myself for this. We did participate on our 2008 sailing & loved it. In fact we still have many good friends that we stay in contact with from the 2008 cruise.

I did not realize that it will be during Mardi Gras, unfortunately they do not celebrate that here in Quebec But I had the opportunity to celebrate it in New Orleans when I was younger.

Maybe we can use it as a theme for this sailing

This will be our 3rd cruise, we have sailed before on the Wonder and the Dream. The Dream is by far our favorite. Never been to Atlantis, maybe we will go this year via Comfort Suites, we will see.

Ok Ladies-

It's been 4 months since we first started this group and still it's only the three of us. Will we ever get more os us to join?

I did a little shopping over the last week. Of course I know we don;t know how many will join us, and their ages, but I picked up a few items for little ones. Not sure how many really do travel with real little ones, but I saw something cute on sale and said- i'll put it in the box with the other items. (I already ahve the adult FE gift all figured out ! Yeah!)

Well, guess what- going to MGM on Wednesday. Just a day trip. It's nice that I can get over to the "EARS" in 1 1/2 hrs. We are getting hte three day and have plans with my mom to go next month (staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort) My DM is taking DS to Magic Kingdom while my DH and I go to epcot. But that is not until first week of May. So this is just a little day over at MGM with DH and DS. I have not been in 10 years and DH and DS have never been. We always head to MK or Epcot. So I'm excited to see all the new stuff they have added for little ones.

I tried today to check and see how much the Comfort Inn and Suites is going to be, but they have not yet release March 3, 2014 to book yet. We are thinking of doing the check-in/ check-out for a day at Atlantis. Also thinking of Blue Lagoon for the Dolphin interaction, but not sure as my DH will be going to gamble at Atlantis no matter what!

I was thinking of starting a pre-trip report. I just might. . . . Since I am having so much fun planning.

Well, I hope to see another 3-2-14 cruiser join us soon.

Lucky you, I wish I could go on a trip between now and the cruise
I need sunshine, it's a dark, rainy day here today

We wanted to go to Atlantis too via Comfort Inn, I think it's about 250$ still cheaper than through the Disney excursion, I read that you check in/out at the same time. According to some you pay housekeeping fees regardless if you went to the room or not. Others said they did not have to pay...

the only problem is that we are 5 and room is only for 4 I will email them when we get closer to the date to see if they can make an exception.

I can't wait
