    Sorry everyone...we are on the 6/27 cruise, not the 7/25. I knew something was wrong with the dates, and I got the wrong thread! Duh. :rolleyes:

    Thank you for the add to the list IrishCowboy. It seems we have confusion by some as to what month we are going. We are in July right???? I'm known for my ability to be confused and confunded.

    But, all should be welcome who are sailing in the Med in the summer of '13. (and others who may stop by;) Besides, if the one's going in June keep dropping by, maybe they'll give us some tips after they return and before we actually leave. I prefer to learn from the good and the bad that others have done, so that I don't make as many mistakes as I usually wind up doing on my own.:teacher:

    Edited one of my posts on page 1 and placed the roll call there to make it easier to find.

    Okay, I also stole this from another thread:

    Mediterranean Cruise Planning

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Listed below are some websites and DISthread links for Med cruise planning. If you come across any useful links, please post them in our thread and we can move them over to this central spot. Some of you have cruised the Med before, or have done land vacations to the Eastern Med, and it would be nice to learn from your experiences.

    Hi there
    We booked a "place holder" cruise whilst onboard the 10 night med last year (2011) in the hope that Disney would be back in Europe in 2013 and in particular - Venice! So...we've transferred onto this sailing :goodvibes Hi to both Helen and Kate. Helen, G has emailed L - she is super excited to learn that we're on the same trip again, they had such a fantastic time last year. This will be our 4th trip on the Magic and, like Helen, I'm happy to answer any questions anyone may have. :cool1:

    Hey disneycrazy2004 Welcome!

    I saw that you are on the 7/13 thread as well. It seems a lot more active than this one. But, we do have a long time yet.
    I noted that your DD is 11 now and will be 13 on the cruise. My DD is 11 now, but won't actually turn 13 until 3 weeks after we get back. I'm not sure how that is going to work with the clubs. I'm sure she can't get into the teen club, but I hope the younger clubs will be okay for her.

    PS - Very jealous of the back to back. But, congratulations, it sounds like so much fun.

    This will be the first time I have taken more than one week off since I was in school.

    Hey,
    Thank you! We got lots of saving to do for the next year and a half. Hopefully everything will go as planned and we are going to have a blast. We are very excited. I grew up in Europe but haven't been back for a very, very long time, so really looking forward to it. :)

    My DD will be 13 when we are on the cruise, not sure about the clubs. We were on a cruise in 2008 and both of my kids did not care about the clubs at all. But they will both be teenagers, so things may be different :) We got lots of planning to do.....This will be so much fun :cool1::cool1:

    My DD will also be 13 at the time of the cruise, we sailed the Med with DCL last year and my kids were never out of the clubs! It really gave them a taste of independence that they loved. DD had made friends with 3 other girls here on the Disboards and they went everywhere together, it really was the best holiday they have ever had. So don't worry I am sure your girls will be just the same! If you would like to PM me I will give you my DD's email address and they can start chatting

    Hi there and welcome Disneycrazy2004

    We are myself (dw), dh and dd who will have just turned 14 when we sail. As Helenreed has mentioned it's great if the children can get chatting before we sail, it certainly breaks the ice! My dd and Helen's dd (along with another 2 girls) got chatting before our med cruise last summer and arranged to meet in the terminal prior to boarding (all wearing the pre-arranged LARGE sunglasses :cool2:) and then spent the next 10 days hanging out - they had an amazing time and still keep in touch now! They used the wave phones to make arrangements, went to shows, the cinema, had lunch, pool parties, kids clubs - you name it, they did it! My dd says it was her best cruise EVER! You're more than welcome to pm me your email address if your dd would like to get in touch.

    Helen - thanks for the message, I've replied but let me know if it doesn't arrive....I can never seem to be able to retrieve my replies??!!

    I moved the roll call to page one by editing one of my posts. That should make it easier to find.

    Sounds like the group so far will be just out of my DD's age range. I'll think I'll keep that one a little quiet until the group gets larger. Luckily, DD only watches over my shoulder on weekends. A lot of my lurking and posting happens between breaks at work.

    We are booked - me, DH & DD (13 at time of cruise) & DD (8 at time of cruise). 6th DCL, but first Med. I'm currently in the middle of a 4 year course, so apologise now if I'm not in here much, but after my last exam (fingers crossed 8/5/13) I should be around a bit more

    This is too cute! I will send you PM and one to Helen as well and may be the girls can start chatting. My DD was excited when I told her. Thank you to both of you :)

    And the group grows. I mentioned to DD about chatting. She's thinking about it.

    We had a hiccup over the weekend. Spend Saturday night at the emergency room with DD experiencing pain in her right side. So far no explanaition. All blood levels are normal. No gallstones (okay, who ever heard of gall stones in a skinny 11 year old???) and no kidney stones. Everything functioning normally. Now, more tests. The doctors are leaning toward scoliosis and displacement of organs. The curve was very slight a few months ago, I haven't noticed any changes, but she grow about 3 inches in the past three or four months.

    Anyway, we got to see her on morphine. She's was in the emergency room quoting Mel Brooks movies.

    Now she has vicodin for the pain. The pain is enough that she doesn't even get loopy from the medication. I hope this resolves soon.

    Any suggestions on making the roll call better??

    Any links for exploring?
