The cruise can be 12 nights at sea long as it does not stop anywhere and returns back to its departure port. Assuming it started in the U.S.

Huh. That's the opposite of what multiple CMs and other seafaring people have told me over the years. I would LOVE a long Cruise to Nowhere.

Yup. As long as it stays at sea and does not port. They could longer than a 2 night if they wanted to.

I'm not up on the finer details, but I know that ordinarily they need to stop at a foreign port because it's not a US registered ship.

You'll recognize us when you see us, two Pooh shaped adults and a little boy in a blue wheelchair. We are really looking forward to the cruise and to meeting everyone.
Welcome. 14 nights won't be long enough I am sure. Though I know of people who don't enjoy that long. Strange folk!!

We are very blessed as we will be cruising for 28 nights(21 sea days). Not all at once I must add. I imagine I will have to pack a size larger bag of clothes!!!

Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

Welcome SchneideFam! Hurry up and post ten times so you can send pm's and get on the lists of fun things to do.

EARLY DINING! If you have early dining and would like to sit with other Disers, when you can send a pm - send one to ME. I am linking early diners. We have enough adults for at least one table, and enough families for at least two tables.

Small bag packed with books and toiletries, and carried down to the trip "staging area". Today - realtor appointment and library room closet.

Happy Day, all!

Morning Linda! Sounds like great progress so far!

Talking about toiletries. I am not sure I have mentioned this site before. In case folks are looking for something special.

Although I have found most travel size things at Target, they have a great selection.

I'm convinced DCL is just playing with us on this cruise.

Two weeks ago it looked like there was barely a cabin to be had. Only concierge showed up (at $14,600) as available and on some days only one cabin. It even came up as sold out once when I looked. On some days a few other Inside would show, usually only one category, and sometimes an OV. Today? I think there are 6 Inside categories available, all the 9's for OV, two different types of 4's for verandahs, and 6 concierge (still $14 grand).

What's going on?

Cabins

As the cruise is getting closer travel agents might be returning inventory to Disney. That might explain the appearance of different cabins now showing up.

Also, they may be upgrading some existing reservations, so the inventory never appears to be set in stone at this point in time.

That said, we did cruise differently than usual. Instead of feeling we needed to run around and do all the shows, etc, we instead spent most of the cruise kicked back relaxing (under the belief we'd get around to doing it all later). So, I would say it was the most relaxing cruise we've ever taken, but still not enough time onboard
.

My husband and I have talked about this quite a bit. With a cruise of this length, we might (gasp) actually sleep in a bit or take an afternoon nap. I am sure we will still be on the go, but we might have some relaxation in there too.

And thanks for all the kind welcomes.

We are definitely in the very relaxed cruising group. Sleep in have breakfast on the veranda, go to the pool or maybe one of the activities, have lunch then a nap. Strolling around the ship before dinner, Jackson likes to dance in the Promenade Lounge before dinner. Late dinner - After Jackson finishes his dinner he goes to the club we then have a relaxing dinner. Maybe a stroll around or a drink in the lounge then pick him up. We are definitely into total relaxation. Heather has tickets for 3 rainforest days.

So just wondering if anyone booked anything today. We are keeping our streak up with DCL WBPC cruises and booked and paid the deposit for 5/2/14. I would have liked the southern rout but I don't like the idea of trying to fly SB San Juan and it has way to many port days for me to enjoy a cruise. I like sea days and port days too, but that only had one sea day. If it were like the 11 night a few years ago out if PC I would have booked in a heartbeat.
