2nd cruise and still a little clueless

This is our 2nd cruise for November 22. It looks like we missed a lot on the first one. How do we get involved? I am 45, my husband 48 and kids are 8 and 15. We all cannot wait!! We are so looking forward to thanksgiving and Christmas aboard the fantasy. Can anyone shed guidance?

Hi all! Looks like I joined the party late. We booked this 7 day Thanksgiving Cruise when we were on the Dream in November 2013. This will be my 7th Disney Cruise but the first time on a 7 day cruise. We are so excited. There will be 4 of us going me-34, my mom-68, my sister who has Down Syndrome-27, and our family friend-52. We would love to join the fish extender if possible. If the Fantasy is decorated anything like the Dream was for the holidays it will be beautiful. I'm by no means a Disney crusie expert but if anyone has any questions I'd be happy to try to answer them. We live close to the Mouse so we go to Disney very often with our annual passes. We love it and just can't get enough of Disney whether on land or sea.

First Disney Cruise

My husband and I along with our two daughters will be cruising over Thanksgiving and we are very excited. My oldest daughter will be 17 when we sail and my youngest will be 9. The oldest is excited about the beaches while the youngest of course is all about the Disney Characters. I am the only one in the family that has ever been to the ocean so this is huge for our family from Colorado. I want to sign us up for the fish extenders and am hoping I am in the right place to do that. Could someone please let me know how this works so I can begin to make some cool things to give?

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA for so long. Trying to keep up with my kid and my job has kept me very, very busy for the last several months! Our horrible, awful winter weather hasn't helped - I think I've been trying to hibernate and when I do have any free time I've just been curling up with a book & trying to ignore the outside world Today is the first day that really feels like spring.

We managed to squeeze in a little Disney fix in January by heading down to WDW for the MLK holiday weekend. It was just a few days (and unusually cold for Florida) but it was nice to get away from the omnipresent snow. We'll be heading back down for our usual spring trip in June before our AP's expire. We won't be renewing them for now since there won't be any time around the cruise to stop by WDW this time. I've actually cut a day off of that trip, because I really want to get back to Chicago for a concert. I'm going to be seeing Queen! Due to all the "snow days" this year, we can't go down any earlier so the trip will be 1 day shorter this time.

Does anyone with teens have any info about the activities for them on the ship? My son just told me the other day that he is worried that this cruise won't be fun. He really loved the kid's clubs when he was smaller & he liked Edge for our last 2 cruises. I guess they visited the teen club once when the teens were out and he thought their club looked boring & that there was nothing to do there.

Is there anyone with teens for this cruise that would be interested in chatting or emailing to get to know each other a bit before the cruise. It might make all the difference to have some other kids to "hang out" with.

My son will be 15.5 for the cruise and a Sophomore in HS. He is currently a freshman. He's a bit of a geek (not a surprise, DH & I both have degrees is Physics & Mechanical Engineering!) and is involved in Chess Team, Orchestra & Video Game Club. He is also a boy scout and does Tang Soo Do Karate. His best subjects are Math & Science, but he usually gets A's in everything except Spanish (Languages just don't come easy for him & its hard work to hang onto a B in there!) If there is anyone else who plays Minecraft, maybe they can meet online with that

Hey, Stateroom 6520 or 6578, wanna trade rooms with us?

Okay, this is a long shot, but throwing it out there anyway. We are currently booked in 6518 and my wife's parents are in 6580. Both have adjoining staterooms (6520 & 6578) that are currently reserved by other families. If any of you are currently in either 6520 or 6578 and would be willing to swap staterooms with us (your 6520 for our 6580 ---or--- your 6578 for our 6518), please let me know. Thank you so much!

The important thing for the kids in this age group is to go to the meet n greet ice breaker on the first day. 4 cruises and they've always done something fun to get everyone engaged. One cruise, it was divide off by birth month without speaking. My niece kept wondering around and couldn't find a group to associate to. She finally went to a counselor and they called out for May. She was the only person in there with a May birthdate. Lol. She said she felt goofy, but someone yelled out for her to come join them and they made her an honorary December. She made fast friends with that group. She'll be 16 in a few weeks and finishing her sophomore year.
