    Hi I just booked this cruise and was wondering who else may be going on this cruise also.

    There will be 6 of us. Myself - Vicki, DH Marty, DD 11, DS 6, DD 5 and DS 2.

    I am excited :banana: as we have never done a 7 night cruise before, just the 3 and 4 nite cruises!

    Hi, We just got off the Magic today and switched to this cruise from a dummy date in Dec 2008 we had booked. It will be me (Danielle), my DH (Derek), DS then 12 (Keegan), DS then 8 (Brennan), my MIL (Joyce), DH's 2 step brothers (Brian and Michael) and their wives (Denise and Andie) along with their children who will be ages 8 (male/Logan), 5 (female/Zoey), 5 (male/Hayden), and 3 (female/Bailey). It will be our 7th DCL cruise, my MIL's
    2nd DCL cruise and everyone else's first cruise. We have done a 3 day, 4 day, Eastern, Western and Mediterranean DCL trips and loved them all. We have the eastbound repositioning booked for August 2008.

    Hi! We are thinking about rebooking onboard for this cruise. I really want to go at Christmas time! We are cruising April 26th and want the onboard credit. :goodvibes It will most likely be just me, DS (will be 13 then) and DD (who will be 9). don't think I can convince DH to go on another cruise but who knows!

    I am torn between this one and the Western the following week. Depending on how much we love St. Thomas on our upcoming cruise, I will book this one, since I like the thought of St. Croix :love: And it's a bit cheaper than the following week too! :rolleyes1

    Welcome:welcome: Danielle,

    We just got off the Wonder on Thurs too. This will be our 7th cruise too, as we also have a 4 night planned early next Dec. I bet you are looking forward to your cruise in 2008. You will really be able to enjoy the Magic for a couple of weeks. :dance3:

    We originally had the 7 night Eastern cruise planned for next Dec., but decided the St. Croix one sounded more interesting.

    Hi dreamcometrue - :wave: and welcome,

    I hope you are able to join us on this cruise. It is nice to book it on the ship inorder to get the ship board credit. We have 2 connecting staterooms, so we have $400 all together - which is really nice. This will be our 1st 7 night cruise. We have only done 3 and 4 nighters.

    We just got off the Wonder on Thurs. and the ship is so pretty this time of year with the tree and Christmas decorations up.

    Hello Vicki,
    I see you started our new Cruse thread. :cool1: I just talked to my TA and request the cabin we had on our first cruise with a verandah:cool1: :cool1: It's not Walt or Roy's cabin , but it will do. I'll pm you our address. I can't remember if you had given me yours, could you send it as well.

    What I forgot to tell you was that there are more activities on a 7 day cruise that i noticed was missing on the 3-4 day cruses, for example Character breakfest. I still enjoyed myself.

    Hi Virginia, :wave2:

    A verandah cabin will be nice, especially with a 7 nite cruise. I PM'd you with our address this morning. Thank you for yours.

    I imagine that there are more activities on a 7 night cruise. A character breakfast for the kids would be fun! I am always so busy on a 4 nite cruise running here and there that a 7 nite might actually be more relaxing -- yah right I probably will only be running around even more :rotfl2:

    Oh well, I am still really looking forward to it! :banana:

    Sign me up for this cruise, too! It will be me (Karen) and my husband (Douglas) going. I know nothing about St. Croix but the Dec 5th date fit better than Dec 12th in my work schedule so we picked Eastern over Western. It was also cheaper by about $600 so that was an added bonus. We also booked it onboard the Mousefest cruise in early December to get the 10% discount and the $200 onboard credit.

    Hi Karen, Doug and missmulan

    Wecome:welcome:

    Karen, Isn't it nice to get the 10% off, plus the $200 per room onboard credit. You've got to like that :thumbsup2

    Missmulan - how many of you are traveling in your party and where are you from?

    Hi Virginia,

    I hope all is well. I just wanted to let you know that I sent you a PM a week or two ago, in case you haven't had a chance to check your messages. I imagine you must be busy with the kids off of school. I hope you are able to relax some:) I hope to talk to you soon!

    We are "on board" for this cruise as well!
    3LVDisney has just made a reservation!:cool1:

    Our party of three includes:
    ME: Andy
    DW: ToniAnn
    DD: Elizabeth (5 years old at date of cruise)

    We just did the 3 day cruise on 12/6/07 in the Roy Suite. It was wonderful, but too quick. Unfortunately, we didn't rebook anything when we were on the ship:confused3 , so I don't know how to save any additional $$ for this one. Anybody have suggestions?

    Hi and welcome Andy, ToniAnn and Elizabeth,

    Nice to meet you. :wave: We got off the ship on the 6th, so you were on right after us.:) Did you have a good cruise? We had a great time, but you were right, it did go way too fast. The only suggestion I have for saving money, etc might be to place your reservation with Dreams Unlimited for the on board credit since you didn't reserve onboard. I think they are offering double credit or something like that. Maybe someone else might have some suggestions too. At least by booking this cruise so far out ( 2years) we all probably have saved some money that way. :woohoo:

    I will talk to you soon!

    If anyone is interested in a fish extender gift exchange I made this magnet design we could use. It's the same one I desinged for the year just added our destinations and changed the date. I know it is still 2 years just wanted to post it for everyone.

    I like your magnet. We just did a secret santa gift exchange on our last cruise in Dec and it was a lot of fun! I would enjoy a fish extender gift exchange too. Reading your magnet gets me excited for this cruise even if it is still 2 years away :goodvibes
