    I have not booked this cruise yet but I am thinking about it. It will be myself (Tonya 29 at time of cruise ) and my son (Zane 8 at the time of the cruise). We took our first cruise on the Magic this past September and my son was hooked! I would love to go in Sept again because the rates are the best then but my son does not want to miss football so it looks like we are limited to after Thanksgiving. I am just worried about the weather :confused3 Has anyone cruised at this time of year before? How was Castaway Cay?

    We were on the 3 day Wonder cruise on 12/6/07. The weather was a perfect 85 for the three days and the waters were calm.:cool2:

    Welcome :cheer2:

    We were just on the Dec. 2nd cruise and thought the weather was perfect too. We had a beautiful day at Castaway. We have cruised other times of the year too and we had less rocking this time than anytime we've sailed.

    Hi :wave2: Everyone!

    I've officially booked a cabin for this cruise this a.m. I will "rebook" and get the discount and onboard credit when we cruise in November.

    I haven't got alot of time to chat right now, but I'll give you a lowdown. I'm Dawn and I cruise with my 2 DGS Skylar and Christian. They both will be 13 on this cruise. This will be our 3rd DCL cruise. We sailed on the 11/26/07 Eastern, sailing on the 11/29/08 Western and then this one. I'm hoping to bring along alot of my group "Nanaheads" to this cruise. The one we originally were going on was 11/28 and another Western.

    Look forward to chatting with you guys. Dawn

    Are you saying that even though I have locked in a great price now, I could take a 3-day in, say, a cat 12 and "rebook" this same price + same room, but get the additional 10% off and onboard credit? :confused3 If so, it might be worth it as I am doing a cat-3 on the 12/5/09 cruise!

    I only booked for myself. There wouldn't be any price guarantee but I'll gamble with the 10 percent off it will be better than the price for 3 now. I booked the room I want so it would be "on hold" so that she could just rebook with the new reservation.

    That definitely might be worth a gamble you might want to take early because you can see what kind of deal they would give you. Check the price for the cruise online before you go and you could see want kindda deal they might give you. The price is about 10 percent less than that price. I don't know how Category 3 works but I would think the possibility of getting the same room would be pretty high. Again, just call them and they would be able to tell you if it would work.

    A word of advice though. Find a good knowledgeable rep some aren't as worthy as others.

    I am pretty sure that they do not give the % off of the suites but you will get the $200 OBC

    I hope everone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    I see we have a few new familys joining us this cruise :welcome:

    Vicky, sorry have contacted you latley, this has been a bad week, I started a math 95 and A/P class I need to apply to the nursing program, Since I have an AAS in Dental hygiene, I only need a few classes in order to apply. Well I'm going to have to put it off for a little bit. , I went a couple of week to have my yearly mammogram, they notice something on the films. I went for additional testing, and the resulds came back positive for breast cancer. The good news it they caught it early and they are very small lumps, I have an appoitment on monday with the surgeon . I'll know more then. I'm keeping a positive attitude. I have done several class presentatiion on brease cancer , and I think it has helped me mentally when I received the report.

    I dont want to bring anyone down, but I just want to remind all of us gals the importance of regulary mammogram.

    Hi Virginia,

    I am so sorry about your bad news. It really took me by surprise. What a relief that your lumps were small and that they caught it early. It is a good thing for mammograms. I haven't had one done yet, I am breastfeeding right now, but plan to definitely get one when I turn 40. Let me know what the surgeon says on Monday. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Plus,
    I am sending along some pixie dust pixiedust: that the surgeon will have good news on Monday and that everything will go well for you.

    Let me know if you ever need anything Virginia. I know I live quite a ways from you, but if there is something I can do here, please let me know.

    That is great that you have such a positive attitude about it all. I have heard that this can help. Let's hope!

    You're such a super person Virginia and I really hope the best for you!

    Vicki

    Thanks, I had a hunch that the suites might be by different rules!

    Good luck on Monday! We are sending our thoughts and prayers out to you!:grouphug: I know that cancer can be a very frightening ordeal (my father was just diagnosed with esophageal cancer over the holidays), but keeping up a positive attitude and taking care of it in its early stages will prove out to have the best results in the long run.

    Take care and keep us all updated.

    Also, if we were to get some of the Nanaheads on our boat (Dsparks and friends), then maybe we could do a "Nana Theme" for our cruise and become Nanaheads ourselves? We will have to ask Dsparks if that would be OK and of course, we would have to agree that this could be our theme. I do not know too much about the Nanaheads other than they do wear yellow shirts to identify themselves:banana: :banana: and they seem like a good bunch (no pun intended).
