I haven't read through the thread. But, I will go back and do it.

Just go home this morning from our 8 night Magic cruise. We drove 23 hours Galveston to Detroit.

We booked this cruise on board.

I was looking over some of the names. I think I have sailed with a few of you before.

Christi,

Actually Kim's right...I talked with Erik on FB prior to you going on this last cruise and I told him about how a bunch of us were going on the 8/23 cruise. He said he needed to check with the "boss"

We just decided to book this. We have a deposit on a Baltic cruise for 8/9/14, we will need to cancel. After pricing airfare and excursions, we were a sticker shocked.

The kids told us that they would go to Europe but just wanted to hang out on the ship with their new friends. So, we decided to save the $$$ and book this cruise.

I was not ready to get off the ship yesterday. The weather was great, just 2 nights that were stormy.

Always important to confirm with the social coordinator. Glad to be on board with some old friends.

Mr's Merrill and Sheldon, so we meet again ( in best kung fu movie voice)

I am in for Mixology. Only tasting I have not done yet. The cognac tasting with Ivo on Magic was way better than the 2011 Wonder.

On a brighter note we're off to Barcelona on Saturday for DH's 50th birthday. I'll be glad of some warmer temps, freezing here in the UK at the moment.
Something is up with this cruise date. All the sailings preceeding 8/23 and after 8/23 have lots of stateroom categories available, but not 8/23. I'm guessing a large block of rooms have been "reserved" for some group purpose. That does not bode well for us if this is a large group. The cruise could become "all about them". Hope I am wrong. Has anyone heard anything?

8/23 is the start of low season. It is usually cheaper. Plus, it is the last week to sail before school starts. In the state of Michigan, we start school the Wed. after Labor Day.

stateroom availability

In NY...we are not going back to school until the week after Labor Day due to the Jewish Holidays where I live. So many places start before Labor Day. I think everyone who starts later is "Jumping on board." That is how we usually end up traveling this time of year.
Have a great one,
Kathy

Oh! You got on when we got off. We were 8/18. I had only cruised Celebrity before and this by far was much better (though Celebrity was still good). Bigger staterooms, the newness of the ship, the ENFORCED adult areas

Where in NJ do your parents live? I'm from the Red Bank area near the beginning of the shore but have since transplanted closer to work at Rutgers in New Brunswick (yeah yeah yeah - the basketball coach stuff...)
