I think I would book the Dream when it finishes it's port contract. The 3 and 5 day iternairies don't interest me at all. But that's me coming from the UK. My time in the US is too precious to spend on a cruise I am not sure about. For me it's not just about the ship, it has to be about the ports.

I can understand it's draw from local residents, if they have a few nights free, or want to bump up their CC status etc.

Saying all that, I can't wait to go on the Dream of Fantasy after I've seen the Magic to compare.

Glad you got the cabin you wanted

I think we are going to do the WB so we can do the WBTA as well. Any particular reason you chose the EBPC?
We talked about the different cruises...2012 was the year of 4-3-2-1 (4 ships, 3 ports, 2 coasts, 1 year) She was unable to get the time off to do the Wonder - this way she can! We are headed to Anaheim (she hasn't been to DLR either) then drive to San Diego, after the cruise - on to Key West for a few days. We decided (as of now) to NOT do a Kingdom to Kingdom deal. Plus - it will be our one year anniversary.


We were also hoping the Magic would come back to NYC so we could do the weekend to nowhere cruises again. Not is the cards for 2014.

The group I have been sailing with for a few years usually do the new itinaries - but those didn't appeal to us either (cost, location etc).

The 20th! Am sure it will be absolutely fine, I just noticed that there were lots of people on their own for the 22nd, but its not a problem.

Been to see the consultant today about my thyroglossal cyst. I need to have it removed, as I suspected, so onto the waiting list for surgery. He has recommended I don't have it done until after the cruise, as he said I shouldn't be out in the sun whilst the scar is still healing, and as the waiting list is around 2 months that would probably put me at having the op in April.

They have taken a note of my holiday dates, so hopefully I will get a date for shortly after I return.

Don't know whats worse on the photos, a lumpy neck or a scarred neck! Never mind, could save me a fortune on pics if they're not that great - I'm a real sucker for the pictures as they always come out SO good, and normally I look awful in photos.

4-3-2-1 is so dang COOL! That is just tremendous!

I love DLR because of the GCH and it's own entrance to DCA. But now that our "home" is AKV, we probably won't be at DLR much (cruising instead!)

I was just wondering if the EBPC was somehow preferable for reasons I wasn't seeing or if it was just a matter of when people want to go. But I guess a first anniversary is an "okay" reason to choose those dates.

Got our reservation changed to the June 16, 2014 Alaskan sailing

But I'm the one who started the meet thread for the eastern Caribbean that we moved to do the Alaskan . I need to find someone on that thread to take it over and start a new one. I feel rotten about that. I really wasn't thinking when I started it and now I vow to never start a meet thread again I think I'll let them know that if nobody else wants to do it that I'll happily keep up with it. It sorta sucks also as it seems like a great group of folks and I was looking forward to the cruise. Oh well, if I have to have problems, these are the kind I like.

If you don't get Disney insurance, who do you use? I usually go thru Insuremytrip but this cruise is a little farther and longer with nothing in between, lol. I wanted to check to see what others use.

Don't feel bad, they will be happy for you!

We did Alaska last June. This wonderful psychiatry group did CMEs during sea days and after excursions in two ports so it was a work trip for me! And those psychiatrists are so clever - it was super expensive for one person...and my companion sailed for free! (and the boys and my parents came too)

I know I've already said it, but Alaska is truly phenomenal. Ill try to post the video of the glacier calving if I can figure out how to get it from DH's FB. I never thought I'd appreciate it - I hate being cold. But wow. Just...WOW.

Looking for 4 people for private Madeira tour

My friend Vicki and I booked the west island tour with Daniel Madiera Taxis, and we have room for 4 more people.


Quote:
Our most common west side itinerary has the duration of about 6.5 hours and is as follows:

Camara de Lobos - a small and quaint fishing town.
Cabo Girao - the lookout on top of the highest sea cliff in Europe.
Ribeira Brava - a seaside village
Encumeada - mountain where you can see both coasts, south and north
Sao Vicente - lovely seaside village on the north coast
Seixal - interesting lava formations by the sea
Porto Moniz - famous for the natural pools
Santa - to have an overall look down to Porto Moniz
Paul da Serra - the plateau, this area is very different from the other parts of the island
Ponta do Sol - another seaside village

Price will be 30€ per person for 6 people. Lunch is extra.
If you are interested in joining us, please send me a PM.

They were awesome. Nobody has responded to what I wrote on our thread, but on the FB page one of the gals said she'd take over for me. They are shaping up to be a really great group. There were going to be a ton of twins on that one!

Aww that's a shame if they sounded like a good group, I'm sure your Alaskan group will be just as cool
