    We are thinking of booking this cruise. We leave Friday on a 4 day cruise on the Magic out of Galveston with our two granddaughters. I am going to probably book while onboard. I am reading the posts to catch up. We will let you know when we get back from this cruise. Sherry:banana:

    Welcome kglynnek! Sherry, have a great time on your cruise!

    I wonder if our ship has space since people moved to the KSF cruises? While I'd love that promotion (we enjoyed it on a Mexican Riveria DCL cruise), it wouldn't really help us this time because we booked adjoining staterooms for our family of 5. I've heard that you must have 2 adults booked to a room for the KSF discount.

    It's been a lot of fun to read about the experiences from those who just completed our identical cruise. Can't wait for it to be us!:beach:

    I bet you're on to something here!

    Has anyone heard if we are going to be moved to the Wonder boat? My cousin just returned from the same cruise we are all going on & said their server informed him that the may cruises were getting the Wonder out of Galveston. They were sending the Magic to Europe! That would be a fun cruise too! We'll just cruise on over to Europe with the boat!!!! (Jk).

    Just "wondered" if anyone had heard anything on that! :)

    Hi Becky,
    As it's scheduled now, we are the last cruise out of Texas for the Spring, then on to Europe! Then the Wonder will be coming in the Fall. They could always surprise us though, and the Wonder is a beautiful ship!
    Have a great night!

    I see a May 20th cruise on Wonder out of LA to Vancouver as she is doing Alaska this summer, so not sure Wonder will be coming here until the fall. But then again stranger things have happened.

    We too were considering this but just not sure.....haven't seen the cheaper rates for end of march or April due to KSF I'm sure, but would be sad if they showed up and I lost out...however, we have an inside sideways cabin booked on deck 6 and I'm skeptical to let it go.....waiting to see what my friend gets for her March 2 cruise via the IGT rate. Also, I would only consider the VGT ($500 savings over my inside) yet it is a gamble as too where the cabin is located....so many variables.......let me know whAt you decide to do as final payment is getting closer......thanks!

    Oh any any other opinions on this appreciated!

    I'm looking at the navigators posted from the first 8 night WDW itineary out of Galveston. Looks like they stayed late in Port Canveral - all aboard time was 1:45 am! Some other interesting things to know about WDW day - you must be in the terminal to clear customs by 9:30am & the first motoroach back to the ship is 3pm, the last is 9:45pm.

    Link to the navigators compliments of HippoHappy:

    Also found 3 dining rotations for our cruise are posted as well:

    1) LAAPOAPL
    2) APPLOPLA
    3) PLLAOLAP

    We booked Cat. 11B several months ago because IGT was not available and with the thought that as the ship filled up DCL might offer us an upgrade at a reduced price.

    Since there remain about 4 - 6 cabins in Cat. 11B, and since there remain that many cabins in several other inside and ocean view cabins and since KSF would work great for us, and since we're not too concerned about cabin location (as long as we are onboard the ship), I think the risk of gaining a $1,200 savings vs. paying an extra $400 is worth it.

    So we're going to take the risk and cancel our current booking. Then watch for special offers and watch how the ship is filling up everyday, and then re-book and pay-in full within the 75 day mark.:surfweb:

    This strategy makes me nervous and I am not generally a risk taker, but weighing the risk vs. the reward, for us this plan makes sense.

    I wish you all the luck :) hope it works out, I am still Leary as I don't see any other 8 day cruise with the rates now and the cat I have is priced $200/$300 higher......but man what a sweet deal it will be if those IGT rates do pop up! Decisions decisions

    I saw that weather alert this morning. I believe this is the 2nd time in a month they have arrived late due to fog. I think you are right that by May the risk of fog will be very small.

    I hope you have a wonderful cruise! Can't wait to hear all about it when you return. Bon voyage.

    We pulled up to port at 11:00 and the ship was here but they told us to come back in 2 hours. So we went to the Disney store. Haha
    We did receive an email but we had already left home. I could have slept in. Grrr they didn't contact us till after 10.00 this morning and our boarding time was 11:00.
    People are getting anxious and I'm just really hungry!
