IDK if anyone has been on the bigger ships, but it is AWESOME being at Castaway Cay on the smaller ship. Plenty of beach and lounge chairs. Half the amount of people. I love the Classic ships!!!

My daughter will LOVE the cats...

Hi there! Myself, husband and three sons are all set to sail on 11-6. It will be our 3rd cruise in 22 mos with another already booked
We got off the Fantasy on 6-29 and couldn't see ourselves waiting until 2015 to cruise again!!
This itinereary will be perfect! I have never been to KW, CC is awesome and the "new" Magic was enough to seal the deal Looking forward to catching up on all the posts here!

Wow!! Three sons!! You are brave... Welcome to the board. We love CC as well. This is our third DCL cruise. I have two kids, one of each, 9 and 11. We are in nj, so they have school vacation then.

Thank you for the welcome
We have a long weekend, also, due to conferences and Veteran's Day holiday. We are flying into FLL on Tues and staying in FLL until Wed. We will grab a shuttle from our hotel to the port in Miami that Wed. Morning.
We've only sailed out of PC before, so this will be new for us.
105 days or so, yay!

We are staying in South Beach the night before. We booked a room at Z South Beach. We have our flights, but I haven't figured out our transfers yet.

So sorry to say this to you lovely folks, but I just switched our cruise to December 4th. Yes, it's all about the decorations!!! Well, that's part of it anyway... I really want to be on the ship when it's decorated, and this seemed like a good time to do so. Also saved a few $$$. I have annoyed "chatting" with you, and I hope you all have a great time!!!

Hello everyone! So excited to be going on this cruise with my 2 little ones. We've sailed on DCL only with my son but know out daughter has joined the crew. We have a boy(6) and girl(4). Living in SFL were super excited to not have to drive all the way to Port C. If you subscribe to Groupon sometimes they have awesome deals for activities in Key West.

We just booked this cruise today. Does anyone know which rental car company to use if I want to pick it up at FLL and drop it off near the port?

What car service? Just trying to make arrangements for our family too.

We are flying into FLL, too. Planning on staying in a hotel the night before and then take SAS shuttle to Miami port.
