The Facebook link is on page 2 of this thread. Have you looked at the FE threads? They have some great ideas. I'm definitely going to get creative since we have a year... I just feel like I need to commit to a project and get started!

Last cruise, I wanted my then 3 year old daughter to be able to help so I used a big circle punch and put Disney stickers in the middle and magnetic tape on the back. We put them on everyone's doors - they were pretty cute and she was excited to be able to do something herself.

We were on the same cruise (2/11/13 - Wonder) and when we did our OBB, they let us choose our stateroom. I wonder if you called DCL if you could get your assignment, or if with the GTY 8A, you could be upgraded if not assigned already.

Just got off the Fantasy 3/2 sailing yesterday and booked this cruise while on board! We were planning to book the new Southern Itinerary, but we fell in love with the Fantasy and aren't ready to give it up for the Magic.

Anyone sailing with young kids looking to plan excursions? We've been on the Eastern before, and the things we did then were just OK. Interesting in hearing ideas! DD will have just turned 7 and DS will about to be 4.

If you booked a GTY I wouldn't expect to receive a cabin number until the Paid in Full date for our cruise; this is usually when DCL needs to release more affordable fares if the cruise is struggling to sell out. I have heard of GTY getting pixie dust earlier, though :-)

Just a little over 11 months until we meet again! It's going to be flying by thanks to my crazy life and moving in the next few months. I'm excited to see what kind of group this will be. So far it's been much more active than my last 2 groups!

I'm so glad it's active this early. Keeping the secret is killing me! I need to talk to someone about it! Lol - My last group was great. I'm trying to get some FE project ideas from my favorite ladies!

We did the dolphin excursion in grand cayman this past trip. Our kids are 12,8 and 6. We had an amazing trip. Had I known though I would have paid the extra for the extreme swim. We got about a half hour with the dolphin but had much less interaction than the extreme swim. We did get a ton of photos. I would love to do this again!

We have been on all of the ships but the fantasy and honestly I love the smaller ships. Much more personal experience, half the people and the staff is so incredible and they really take the time to sit and talk with you. Captain Fabian on the Wonder was incredible. My youngest had journal questions for the captain, which we have never met on any of the the other ships, and told him we had questions for him. He told us to send it up the the bridge and he would get to it. He did it right away and did it all for my son. He has a pretty cool signature too. Someone else on our trip had girls that had to report on angles and such and he brought them a map from the bridge and signed it for them at breakfast on the last day! I can't wait for the Fantasy!! Praying we have awesome CM's!

Since this is only our second cruise ever, what does GTY really mean? When we booked the guy at the desk onboard said we could get a 5A cabin, but I'm really not sure how all this works. Anyone know?

345 days and counting
