    Hi all...
    Are we the only family booked on this cruise??:thumbsup2
    Just booked this one. Will be traveling as a single mom with 3 littles!
    Madigan (8) Graiden (6) and Finnian (4).
    We have friends who are also looking to join us...
    Was hoping to get an FE started but it won't be much fun with only 1 cabin...;)

    We are on this cruise, too. We sailed on the Dream last April & loved it so much we booked this 5 night for April 22.

    There are 5 of us: 2 adults and 3 children (13-boy, 11-girl, 8-girl)

    What excursions are you doing?

    Right now we have booked Fury Catamaran in Cozumel and Rum Point Beach in Grand Cayman.

    Last year our youngest was afraid at a dolphin excursion and that was a waste of $ so I am pretty certain she would not want to do anything with sting rays.

    We're on too! DH, DD-10 and DD-8. Our first cruise as a family (hubby and I did Princess over a decade ago) and our first Disney Cruise! Totally excited. Can't book excursions until 2/6 but hoping to be able to get the Dolphin swim/turtle farm in GC and the de-barbed stingrays in Cozumel. Both girls are into animals, plus we homeschool so has that educational bonus ;)! And a dolphin interaction has been on my bucket list for years! How does the fish extender thing work? Also, want to do a couples massage and have girls go to the kids club. Do they give you an idea of their scheduled activities beforehand or just daily in the Navigator? I think they'd like the cooking one, PJ party and flubber.

    We are on this cruise too! My DH and I took our first cruise 12/11 on Celebrity and can't wait to introduce our kids (DD 12 and DS 10) to cruising! We got the KSF deal so we are even more excited! Is this group going to do a meet-up?

    You guys are the perfect match for us &#128521;Our kids are the same age!! Are you concerned at all about maybe sending your daughter to the nursery and son to the kids club? I wish my two could be together!

    yes! very worried ;( Our travel agent who is a friend of ours said it may be possible for our little girl to go to the kids club since she is potty trained, but I'm not sure...I'm a terrible worry wart with her, but my son is very outgoing and gets along with anyone. We will have to get them together, I won't be so worried ;)

    We are also going on our first Disney cruise 4/22/13. My husband and I have DD 4 and 7 month old DS. I was planning on using nursery and kids club.

    Anyone who has cruised with Disney before-we currently have second seating for dining, this will be late for our daughter. Any recommendations? Should I feed her early with one of the quick services and then send her to the kids club? Hopefully I will be able to switch to first seating.

    Thinking about dressing up for the pirate party. Has anyone been to it before?-do people really dress up?

    Also I have been scouring the internet for Cozumel/Grand Cayman advice. It seems paradise beach in Cozumel is free, short taxi ride, $2 chair rental,large pool, lunch bar and facilities, they have a nice website and great reviews. And for Grand Cayman, the Royal Palm beach, has pool and lunch restaurant & facilities, again with free admission. Both beaches look perfect for our family-since with the baby it will be difficult to do any waters ports activities. I am also looking into the beach pass for a day at some Grand Cayman hotels, you get access to their beach/pool/towels and some offer you a room for the day-which with small children is a major plus.

    ***We would also love to participate in Fish Extenders if anyone is doing it??? I can't seem to find a list or link for it.

    I am so glad to hear there is another "tween" girl on the cruise! My DD (12) has been worried it was going to be all littles because of the KSF promotion.
