But Pod Cast Cruises are special. On one of the (2.0 I think) we were something like 25% of the ship. Everywhere you looked there were DIS credentials. It all meant a chance to make new friendships with people who you might never have met if it weren't for the boards.

Knowing the DIS team, they will have some really good stuff cooked up for us. Add to that the impromptu things that will happen when you get a bunch of friends together in one of the lounges, MDR or on deck and it will be a cruise to remember.
a~ha..... there is someone.....Hey Jeff & Val

Looking forward to this, "finally" meeting you & the rest of the DIS family!

Unfortunately, we're waffling on whether to cancel cruise or not since would have to pull DD out of school right after being out for Thanksgiving. We booked over the excitement of having Jodi Benson who DD would LOVE to see and expecting more surprises but have to decide soon. Without more announcements, we're starting to lean toward canceling.

For the people looking for more announcements about this cruise, I can tell you that the DIS folks will make them once DCL and third parties confirm arrangements - and not before. The DIS doesn't want to announce an event on board only to have to withdraw if they can't complete the arrangements.

Both John and Tracey have said that right now DCL isn't ready to discuss the availability of venues, dates, times for this cruise. Without that cooperation, there is little that can be announced.

Totally understand and not complaining as I know they can't announce, just disappointed that it will most likely result in our canceling. Hope we don't kick ourselves when the announcements finally can be made.

What's everyone doing for a hotel on Saturday night before the cruise?

I was assuming there would be a group rate the Swan/Dolphin, so I have been waiting. Plus, I guess I am also thinking there will be group transportation again as well.

Now I am getting a little concerned that maybe I should make a reservation somewhere, just in case. It is Thanksgiving weekend and I do not want to be homeless the night before the cruise!

Has anyone booked the Swan/Dolphin (or anywhere) just in case?

I am looking for thoughts on how long I should (or should not) wait!!

Good question Linda. Not that its an issue for Val & I now, but if we still lived in MA I'd be making a "just in case" reservation at the Swolphin.

That's how I was leaning too, Jeff.
I also wanted to know if anyone else was waiting.

I did just now successfully make a Dolphin ressie for Saturday night.
I got the "nurses rate" which isn't too bad.

If John doesn't have a group rate- at least we have a place to sleep.
We know we can worry about transportation to the Port later.

We're staying at a PC hotel on Saturday night. Have a one-night reservation at Movies for post-cruise. Tracey knows we plan to switch if the gang gets a good rate at Swan/Dolphin.

We're booked at the Boardwalk villas from Wednesday to Sunday. I think my job gave me the cruise week off, so now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will give me Black Friday off too.
It's Thanksgiving weekend, the busiest travel time of the year, I would book now and then change for a better rate if one comes out.

I'm currently planning to do 2 nights at the Pop pre-cruise, then 3 nights at the Swolfin afterwards.
