    Glad you felt better quickly. That was still a horrible ordeal to have to go through on a cruise!

    Poor Kirstin, I am happy to hear she is home from the hospital and back to being almost herself again. She will get there.

    We don't have anything planned on the West coast as of yet, but the wheels in my head are always turning and ya never know. Hopefully one day we will be on the same thread again. That is always fun!

    Good luck to you.

    Nice to have met you.

    Dawn

    :scared1: How awful to get sick while on the cruise. I feel so bad for you. That's funny that the ship's doctor saying to drink a lot of rum. On one of our earliest cruises DD got stung by a jellyfish on CC and we went to the first aid building. The doctor there told us that if you are ever without anti-bacterial cream to just use human urine (ie pee directly on your skin).

    Awwww......glad you could make it. I don't know how people cruise with such young children. My kids were 5 & 7 when we first cruised and they were asleep every afternoon and all of us were asleep by 10pm. This was the first cruise that I've ever been able to stay out past 10pm and enjoy all the adults shows and dancing.

    Wow...I had no idea how many of us got sick either on the cruise or after. I guess misery loves company. We're all finally better. DD was at the doctor on Friday for a skin rash that started right before we cruised and all the salt water in the Caribbean made worse. You would think salt water would make a skin rash better but it did the reverse and she ended up with a skin fungus. Once we got home it started quickly spreading so I took her to the doc. The rash is almost gone now.

    Well long time no post – Glad everyone made it back safely! I figured I’ld drop by the boards today to check out the pricing/info that all the gold &platinum CCers have been posting about the 2011 cruises. We booked a dummy res. while on board that we could transfer once the 2011 prices came out. Unless DW tries to convince the rest of her family to cruise with us, we are shooting for an early November 2011 Eastern on the Magic. Because we don’t have kids, we figured we would give an off-season cruise a try – plus both our birthdays are in early November:cake: Anybody have experience sailing in November? We Hopefully with the entire hubbub over the new ship & new itineraries, prices for the traditional Caribbean itineraries will stay reasonable.

    I also wanted to make sure we thanked the mystery DISer :thanks:that made the door decorations for our cruise!!!! Hopefully we got to meet you, & if not hopefully we can sail together again sometime in the future!

    Hi Bryan

    We didn't book anything onboard. No idea when we will get to sail Disney again. Even though we have done 5 cruises and could have booked today there is nothing suitable for us.
    We want to do Alaska(almost did it this May) but Tuesday sailing is no good for us with Matt at school, His school only gets 1 week off in spring so Tues sailing means too many days out of school. Only other option is August but other factors against that.
    So looking like HAL or RCCL instead. They sail Saturdays from Seattle(also easier airport for us than Vancouver)

    I knew I had forgotten something! Thanks to whomever decorated our door as well! I enjoyed finding the magnets up there, and my daughter really loved having them!

    I also rebooked dummy dates onboard, and I am going to discuss a firm plan with family this week, since I can't book until Monday.

    What would work best for us, assuming we don't move, is the Aug 23 2011 Alaskan cruise. But my first choice is the northbound repo. No Disney ship has ever been to those ports before and I recall Disney had a special celebration the first time the Magic visited Barcelona. Hopefully there will be something special in Vancouver.

    Of course, regardless of what the family decides is first choice, booking depends on cost and me finding another job. I did find an IT job at WDW - maybe I'll hear back from them!
