    I am beyond excited to have just booked this cruise! I teach 6th grade and in NY these are many of the places we study in Social Studies! AND...it's July so I can go on a 12 night cruise!!!!

    • Rebecca (me)
    • DS (will be almost 15 at time of sailing)
    • From Upstate NY
    • Stateroom is on Deck 5 (I don't have the room # in front of me)
    • We have 2nd dining.
    • Yes, FE--I would be happy to organize.
    • This will be our 7th, maybe 8th cruise (3 Wonder, 2 Dream, 1 Magic--March 2012, and thinking about Alaska--August 2012)

    I was able to easily book this afternoon via the website. I transferred an onboard booking so we got 10% off and our $275 OBC. I hope to transfer the ressie to Dreams for an additional OBC ($200 I think). Our rates weren't much if any higher than those that called yesterday. We are Gold CC members but I couldn't sit on the phone as I was at school.

    We will be looking to add the Adventures By Disney add-on if it is something worthwhile and doesn't break the bank! Now to figure a way to get a decent price on flights!

    ughhh. Please help me rationalize this :lmao:

    I have 2 ressies. 1 is booked and 1 is on hold for 3 days.

    We are going on our 2nd Magic cruise this summer out of NY (live 45m away from NY port). Costing my family of 5 (in 2 9A cabins) 9K. My parents also have a cabin booked for this.

    Can't afford to do this summer expensive cruise and the following summer in the Med with the whole family. Airfare for 5 to Europe is EXPENSIVE.

    Hubby and I decided to do the Med alone to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I booked the 7 day for $3034 for 11B.

    I really really really want to do this 12 night instead. I have a hold on it $5451 for 11B.

    My dd will be off to college in 2014 and we won't be able to take a trip like this for a long time once she is in college. Hubby and I have only been away for 2 nights alone since our Honeymoon as we take the kids everywhere (we have 4).

    We went on a Norwegian cruise for Thanksgiving and it was horrible. I will only sail Disney.

    I am trying to justify the extra $2417 for the 12 nighter. I wil be leaving the kids home with MIL coming here. My daughter will be 17, another daughter 8 and my son 15 at time of cruise.

    I want to be with you all :grouphug:

    TheMouseGeeks are going to the Med! :banana:

    Me~ Jennifer
    DH~ Gottfried
    DD ~ 13 (at time of cruise. Oh my- the teen club!)

    We are just north of Atlanta.

    This will be #7 on DCL- first time in the Med.

    We do have a 7-night MR in April to look forward to right now as well, which I hope will help make the countdown to July 13, 2013 bearable :yay:

    Look forward to getting planning a great trip with all of you!

    I haven't been before so can't give you any good advice. Here is a new thread that might be helpful to you as you sort things out. Good luck!

    Hello!!

    We are SO excited about this Med cruise... we were not only hoping Disney would do a Med cruise for 2013, but that they would include Greece as part of their itinerary, so we got everything we wished for (just wish the prices weren't so high, but that's ok.... we have lots of time to save up our pennies! :) :) ).

    We are from Seattle, WA
    Me: Kathy
    DH: Eric
    DS: Tyler (age 12 at time of cruise)
    DS: Ryan (age 10 at time of cruise)

    Our cabin is 7062.

    Right now, we are main dining. We are going to wait to see what shore excursions we plan to see if we should move to late dining, but for now, we are early.

    Not sure if we'll do the FE group at this point. I'm going to wait until it gets closer. We have always done the FE exchange on our other cruises, but we might be tagging on a couple weeks in Europe before or after the cruise, so if we do that, I am not sure we'll have room for FE gifts.

    My parents will also be on this cruise... their cabin is a couple doors down from us. My parents live here in Seattle, too, but they won't be writing into these boards.

    Looking forward to writing in... just wish the cruise was THIS summer and not a whole 1.5 years away! But, leaves lots of time for planning! :woohoo:

    Take care!

    Hello! I'm Nicole from Linwood, NJ (the infamous Jersey Shore, not as glamourous as it sounds) and so excited for this cruise (it will be my 7th DCL cruise). I am excited because my 27th birthday will be on July 15 of this cruise- I've always wanted to celebrate my birthday onboard a Disney cruise, and was keeping my fingers crossed that the itinerary I wanted with the rumored Greece/Turkey would fall over my birthday, and I cant believe it actually did!! I feel like its meant to be. As of now I am travelling by myself but booked for 2 adults in case a friend or relative later decides to join me. I prefer companionship and obviously splitting the cost since the single supplement is so frustrating, but when I can't find someone to join me I never let that stop me from going alone (I just recently went to Australia and New Zealand for 3 weeks in October alone, but part of a tour group that I met 38 wonderful friends out of, and know I'll make friends with our wonderful group on this cruise!).

    I'm in room 2009, second seating, and want to partake in the FE. Later on I would love if we could find volunteers to design logos for magnets/tshirts, and lanyards and bracelets. We did that on my Panama Cruise last January and it was so fun to see our huge group wearing the same recognizable items!

    I'm thinking of doing Disneyland Paris after the cruise for a few days, depending on the cost of airfare from Barcelona to Paris. I've been to Paris twice and other Europe twice and kick myself that I didnt make time to go to DLP before, so I hope I can swing it this trip. All depends on the international airfare cost and my job situation next year, we'll see. But either way I'm so looking forward to this cruise, I've been to Florence/Pisa/Rome before (studied abroad in Italy) and Nice/Monaco (love it there!!), but never been to Spain, Turkey, Greece, or Malta so i am so ready for amazing new adventures!

    I wish you good luck with your decision. We did the Disney Med just DH & I in 2007 (both of our kids are on their own All I can say is we still talk about the incredible time we had Med Cruise. We've done AK and the Baltic which were both fantastic, but ahhhhh the Med. I know the extra money seems so much, but if you can swing it, I'm sure you won't regret. And with the addition of Greece.......... it can only be a super WOW! :woohoo::woohoo:

    Hope you can join us. :flower3:

    WHOOP WHOOP!!!!

    SOOOOO glad to be joining you guys on this cruise! I can hardly wait! We had to cancel our March MR cruise due to military restrictions, so this is quite the way to make up for it!

    Me-Ivey (poizenivey)
    DH-Jason
    DD-Kennedy (9 at sailing)
    DD-Karsyn (8 at sailing)

    Late seating
    Room 6603

    Hubby has already started the "beans and rice" speeches! Penny pinching has officially started!

    We booked this morning online at 6:10ish Mountain time...had no issues and it was a smooth as could be! Even transferring the ressie from a dummy cruise!

    We will not sign up for FE's right now, but will keep them in mind! I'm so ready to start planning!

    Hi everyone!

    My family and I are in!!!! We are a group of 11 (possibly 12) from Missouri who have booked 4 category 6 cabins on deck 6. Second seating for dinner. So excited - my only regret is that we can't see Venice, but it's okay. Really really happy to see Greece!

    slg- we have never met, but my family sailed on the same Baltic cruise as you did! It was amazing, wasn't it???

    We did the Med in 2007 and it really stands out as such a wonderful trip! I am excited to go here again, and to see the new places. We did a pre-trip at Disneyland Paris, and I loved it! If anyone is thinking of going there, as a Disney fan you should! Besides that I really loved visiting Paris, especially the Eiffel tower. This time, I'm hoping to see more of Barcelona, because we barely saw any of it on our last Med cruise.

    Anyway, my name is Kelley and I'll be traveling with my husband and two sons who will be 11 and 12 at that time. Also traveling with my extended family, including my parents, my brother, and my sister's family. My sister is on the disboards, also, so I'll recruit her to join this board with me.
