Hey everyone. So we are moving back to sailing over Thanksgiving due to school and work like most everyone!! We have a choice between this itinerary and the Magic western going to Castaway Cay, Key West, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. We are so torn on which one to choose, haven't been on either ship or to either itinerary. We loved the Dream and are sure we'd love the Fantasy but the Magic updates look great. What are your thought? Our DD11 wants the Magic, DHL'S wants Fantasy and I truly don't care".

I had this exact same dilemma! I have actually never been on the Fantasy or the Magic, but thought the Magic's itinerary looked more interesting. However, what it came down to for us was the fact that a verandah room on the Magic was more expensive than one on the Fantasy (when we booked). And while I'm sure the Magic's improvements will make a difference, I like the amenities and food options on the Fantasy better (based on my experience on the Dream).

I hope this helps a little.

I added you. I've been in the Smoky Mountains & didn't have Internet access so I didn't see your request. Anyone else is welcome to join us over on Facebook, too. We aren't very active but it is another way to get to know each other.

Hi Everyone,
We can't wait to set sail with you guys in 2014. This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. We love them! We have been on the Dream in 2011 and we were on the Fantasy last November. We love them! It will be me (Jen), my DH (John), my DS (Shawn who will be 14 at that time) and my DD (Katie who will be 12 at that time). We have done the FE both times and love it so. If anyone has any questions, I would be more than happy to try to help. Both cruises were fantastic. The service, cleanliness, people, etc were excellent! We will not go on any other cruise lines because we are so spoiled.
Can't wait to chat with you all.
Jen

Welcome!!

Since you've cruised in November before- how was the weather? I've been trying to find every Thanksgiving cruise trip report to figure this out, and it seems like a mixed bag. I'm just hoping our first ever trip to CC isn't a cold one!

We were in WDW for Thanksgiving week in 2011 and we were in shorts and tank tops the entire time. Friends of ours had gone the week after Thanksgiving in 2010 and had to wear winter coats- it got into the 30's during their trip.

We are also VERY excited about FE. I'm sure with this being Thanksgiving week we'll have plenty of interest as the months go by.

Our cruises have been pretty spread out - the first was in 2004. The first 5 were all on the Magic. Most were attempts at a full Western itinerary - LOL! For the first, hurricane Hugo trashed Grand Cayman a month or so before we sailed and we were one of the very first stops at Costa Maya. For the second, it was the year of hurricanes everywhere and the morning we sailed our Western turned into an Eastern - we also dodged hurricanes Alpha & Beta while we were at sea. The third try was the charm & we managed a full, normal Western! Our 4th cruise was our all-time dream trip that will probably never be matched - it was an Eastbound Panama Canal transit (15 days!). Number 5 was another Western & Number 6 was on the Fantasy last November for an Eastern with the 1st stop at San Juan.

Welcome Disneydork3! Glad to meet you When you get back from your cruise this year you'll be able to tell us all about what DCL does to celebrate Thanksgiving on board. I think I saw something this year that they decorated everything for Xmas overnight between Thursday and Friday!
So which itinerary did you like best? I'm having a hard time deciding between this and the magic western with Key West. We've been on the Dream but postponed our 2013 Magic cruise until next year. How was San Juan, safe? Just don't want to be stir crazy with 3 sea days, even though we all want to sail the Fantasy. I know both will be great but don't know which to do.

We're officially back for good!

My TA just emailed me confirmation! We are officially booked and I think we're actually looking forward to the sea days like everyone says!

We are most definitely participating in the FE, we had lots of fun last time. I already have some ideas!!

We should think of a fun cruise name...Castaway Crew, FANTASY Castaway's or something with fall or Thanksgiving. Any ideas?

For those of you with kids in the Edge, what are your thoughts about them roaming the ship? Our DD will be 11 when we cruise. We'd like her to have fun but safety is obviously our biggest concern. Have any of you cruised with Edge-aged kids before. It would be great for them to get to "know" each other a little before the cruise so they can meet up with familiar faces.

We've just moved to this cruise from October as we'd rather not have our kids miss school if they don't have to.
