Thanks for the welcome! These b2b cruises will be our 9th and 10th cruises, but our first on the Dream, so we are looking forward to exploring the new ship.

This will only be our 5th. When we return next year we'll be Gold Status. Looking forward to that one. What ships have you sailed? We are kind of doing a b2b. We'll be sailing on the Fantasy for 7 days then at WDW for a day until we sail on the Dream. DH Dan wants to do a b2b Fantasy. Some day.

I normally travel with all three of my daughters (the 21 year old is the oldest and will be a senior in college this year), and this will be my first with just one of the girls. The other two are a new college freshman and an incoming high school junior and can't get away for those dates in December. We started out on the Wonder on a 4 day, and then have done lots of LONG special cruises on the Magic - Med 11 night, transAtlantic 14 night, Panama Canal 15 night followed by a b2b with a 5 night Bahamian, 7 night Eastern and Western (New Year's eve cruise), and this summer 12 night including Turkey and Greece . . .

This b2b on the Dream celebrates my birthday on Dec. 9 and my oldest daughter and I intend to make it a very relaxing trip. I just booked a Bamboo massage for my birthday at the Senses Spa . . .

Hey there..

Most of the main characters (princesses and classics) are on the ship at different times of the day on different days.. You will just need to keep an eye on your navigator to see the times..

The only characters that we did last year was the final night "Till We Meet Again" where the Fab 5 along with other friends (Chip and Dale) were decked out in their Holiday best!!

I also remember they did have a "Santa" onboard along with a professional photographer to take family portraits..

Hope this helps..

When you check in at the port, your Key to the World card will list your dining schedule on it . . . you go to the restaurant you are assigned to every night, but your servers will be there to remember your preferences, etc. You will also receive tickets listing your rotation order in your stateroom, and they often ask for you to take them along the first night to confirm your table number and that you are in the correct restaurant. Having also cruised on RCCL where you go to the same restaurant every night, I have to say that this is a huge advantage at DCL.
