Our FE arrived and I love it! She did a great job! I'm also really liking the Parents and Kids pocket.

I love the FE! We plan on booking an April 20 on the Dream I think. We also are planning an Alaska trip the following summer. Or is that 2016?

Tired, must. Go to bed....

I wish they'd release them soon. Gabby will be 18 early next year so ideally I'd like to take a family cruise before then so she'll have access to the teen clubs. I've read that kids between 18-21 end up a little lost on the cruise as they're too old to join the club fun but obviously too young to join the adult fun. What do you think would be some fun options for Gabby if we cruise after she turns 18? Feb 2015 is just soon for us so I was looking at April or June before she leaves.

So you know what they did to the Wonder during dry dock? I couldn't sleep last night so I was pouring through cruise food porn pics. Palo looks amazing. Are their desserts as good as they look?

Thanks for giving me the idea of just two pockets. It saved me $15. Love my savings.

I was looking at Alaska too. Michael's got a buddy that wants, and I use the term want loosely, to take his kid on a cruise. He's not a Disney fan at all but I started looking at Alaska for them as he's a big wilderness guy. I was telling M how cool I think it would be for them and he spouts off with he didn't know Disney did Alaska. Big fat fibber as he's read some of Cynthia's report with me. Anyway, it did spark his curiosity. I was looking at prices and holy moly that's a spendy one. The girls would prefer tropical for sure. I'm looking at possibly Spring Break 2015 or early June depending on when Gabby leaves for her camp counselor job. I think she may leave like the day after school gets out which would mean we'd have to go over Spring Break.

Hope you slept. Sorry for the cruise ramble.




4 sleeps until Mexico and I've reached the no sleep stage. I should be nice and exhausted by the time we actually leave per usual.

Tonight I'm going with some girlfriends to Frozen singalong. Tangled is still my favorite but how can I give up the chance to sit in a theater with other Disney freaks and sing out loud.

Dont look at the Alaska prices out right now and get discouraged. Prices go up and up as cabins are sold, so the cheapest is when they first come out. I hope they get their act together and put them out soon.

Hmmm, good question about 18 y.o.s and what to do. They can enjoy all the adult only areas but not sure how entertaining that would be for them.

Yes, the desserts are as good as they look

Have great fun tonight!

Yeah, I about barfed. $10,000 for one cabin before flights? That's college.

I'd really love to get her on a ship before she's 18. Either that or have her bring a friend but that opens up another can of worms and another cabin.

How do you get five people in one cabin?

I don't know but when I put in 5 people it gives us one room with a verandah as an option. Should it not?

There are some cabins that can hold 5. Also look bout booking a veranda and an inside cabin. Sometimes that is cheaper...keep the veranda for yourself and put the kids in the inside cabin across the hall.

Your best prices will be day 1...I would book on board and then book on the day the 2015 itineraries are released for booking.

I have a great TA if you don't already have one.

I'm thinking the 2015 itineraries will be released before the cruise. Then what?

I do not have a TA. Can they navigate this? Ellen is a TA.

I'll check out the inside and verandah option. The prices freaked me out!

When you book on board, just name her as your TA. I would yell at her and tell her what you are interested then she can book them when they come out. I think you can then reshop that reservation on board to get the OBB discount/benefits. Someone let me know if that is still true about the reshopping since I've never done it personally.

Thanks Jill. I'm really looking to take advantage of the lesser deposit. I'd love to know this as well.

Yes, you can book one now, or right when they come out, but you'll have to pay the 20% deposit. Then onboard you can 'rebook' the cruise with 20% off, 10% deposit, and an OBC. Only problem is, it's 20% off the current price, so if you snag a super deal on day 1 of itineraries being released it won't be a benefit to rebook on board. You can always wait until getting onboard to book to just get that deal without having to bother with all that.

What would you do? I want to save the most with the least amount of headache. Don't we all.

I guess I need to find some historical opening day pricing.

What I really need to do is pack. It's hard not to pack cold weather clothes. The high is 90* and the low is 70*.
