    Welcome to the Eastern Caribbean Mouseketeers Meet Thread! We set sail on August 23, 2014 for a glorious seven night cruise to the Eastern Caribbean on the beautiful Disney Fantasy. I am doing the Roll Call and also organizing the FE, so please send me a PM if you'd like to join. For the Roll Call, please let me know who you are sailing with .... and for the children let me know their ages at time of sail.

    Tinkerbelltwins has started a closed Facebook page. Anyone wanting to join that should send her a PM with your real name on FB. Then when you have logged into FB, send your "request to join" to this link:https://www.facebook.com/groups/583339905014713/.

    The design for this cruise that appears up at the top of this post was arranged by tinkerbelltwins who asked one of the most awesome (and super sweetest) DISigners out there - Millipie - to help us out. A huge thank you to Millipie for doing this for us. Please use this cruise design only for your personal use.

    This will be such a fun cruise ... welcome aboard everyone!

    Thank you so much, Kritter! I really appreciate you taking over the thread. :hug:

    I sent a PM to the moderators asking the previous thread be closed. I will put a post on the Find Your Meet Thread thread asking to have this one linked over there instead.

    I'll miss you guys. Have a fantastic cruise! :dance3:

    I don't get why we had to close the first thread. How important is that first post anyway...oh well...hope we didn't have anything on the first one that we may need. Guess we have plenty of time to figure it out.

    Being able to update the OP is important, but some threads are ok w/o that. I posted a link to the first thread in my post (#2 on this thread) just in case you need to reference back to it. It's closed, but not deleted. I made a hyperlink in that post.

    I'm sad I'm going to miss this cruise with you all, but very excited about Alaska :sad2:/:goodvibes

    If you send a PM to the moderators, they may be able to merge the two threads into this new one.

    See if you can have Kritter's as the OP, then she can always change it. If you decide you want it merged and my OP is kept as the OP, you can always PM me when you need to have it updated. I would be happy to do that.

    Found the new one!

    Well, the rest of 2014 DCL has been released. We are going to keep this cruise. The itinerary of the southern caribbean cruises is what I've been looking for BUT they are mid september thru mid october ... BOOOOOOO ... for us, taking the kids out of school at that time doesn't work. That is also very much when statistically the worst storms rage through the caribbean. Oh well. The prices are good but I guess its for the reasons I just stated.

    Two reasonable options for taking a southern caribbean cruise out of San Juan (which is something we would like to do) are: February break (presidents week) on Royal Caribbean or April spring break on Celebrity. Summer is off season for Caribbean for everyone except DCL and they pull ships out of there. I don't know if Carnival sails there in summer but I won't even look at that, especially now. :eek:

    Sadly, 2014 DCL Med prices are even more outrageous than this year.

    I booked this a while ago (shortly after opening day), but i've just been lurking. I was sort of hoping they would be running a ship out of NYC in 2014, so I could switch my booking, but that didn't happen so now i'm sticking with this one.

    We are Karl_NJ (Karl), DW (Kari), DS (9), DD (5).

    This will be our 2nd cruise on DCL; we were on the Disney Dream in August 2012. We've also sailed as a family on Carnival (2x) and Cunard (3x) (what a combination, huh?), and will be trying Celebrity (to Bermuda) in August of this year. We bring our kids on all of our long cruises, but from time to time my wife and I do go on silly little 1 or 2 night cruise-to-nowhere's out of NYC on Norwegian.

    All of our cruises (as a family) have been out of NYC, except for DCL. Disney is the only line that we are willing to fly for :-) At least it gives us an excuse to visit WDW again, since we will be down in the Orlando area anyway...

    I've never been to Saint Maarten, so i'm looking forward to visiting that port.

    I don't think we'll be participating in the FE exchange.

    Hello Fellow Cruisers!

    I was feeling a bit reminiscent about last summer's cruise and felt the need to pay a visit to the DIS boards. Was pleasantly surprised to discover that a cruise meet thread had been started for the August 23, 2014 Eastern. (Thank you!)

    Would love to be added to the role call. I will be traveling with my DH and DS (who will be 12... and celebrating his 13th on our CC day).

    This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. The first one was a 5 night Wonder in August 2010. Our most recent was a Fantasy Western Caribbean (August 18, 2012). We had a great trip and I especially enjoyed the DIS Meet and seeing so many familiar faces around the ship during our wonderful week.

    We re-booked with a dummy date on board last August.... so glad for the discounts and room credits!

    Hi Karl & Tracy! Welcome! :wave2:

    My kids are old....20 & 17 at the time of the cruise. In fact I'm not sure what DD will do but I have a feeling she'll be following DH & I to the adults area. This will be the first Disney Cruise in which one of my children is too old for the teen club. :sad2:

    Thank you Diane!

    On our cruise last August, the Navigators showed scheduled meet ups for the 18 - 20 year old group. Not the same as the awesome teen club, but at the least, your daughter can enjoy the adult areas, spa and fitness room.
