I'm interested in hearing from people who surprised their kids with a DCL cruise. I've seen posts where people talk about doing this, but I'm curious how it turned out. I have just booked a week on the Fantasy in December for myself, my mom, and my 2 boys. My current plan is to just tell them we are going to drive by the Fantasy and then surprise them by going on board. But I have a couple concerns, including that my 2 boys (ages 5 and 8) have always enjoyed the build up to a cruise, and I wonder if I am going to regret the chance to do all the planning and discussion of the cruise with them. So if you surprised your kids, let me know if you regret it or if it turned out well, and what if anything you would different. Thanks!
