    It is set to closed (just so the posts aren't visible to everyone cruising facebook). I think I approved you tonight, but if not send me a message and we'll figure it out. :)

    I am so glad to see someone else bringing their infant on the cruise. Our DS will be 3 months when we head off. Your DD will have a blast - we went on our first Disney cruise last September and the kids are still talking about it.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with this procedure once the inevitable winter fog causes a delay. On our January cruise last year, the ships' (NCCL and CCL) arrivals were delayed due to heavy fog, and we received a call (just after we'd checked out of our hotel at noon) to not arrive at the port until 6 PM. We spent a lovely afternoon with a leisurely brunch at the Hotel Galvez, walking along the beach and seawall, and doing the carved tree stump tour on our own. We got to the port right about 6 PM; lines were long and we did not get inside the terminal until 7 PM. However, we were on board by 7:30 and the ship cast off at 8:30 PM.[/QUOTE]

    Seeing how you went on a cruise last January... How was the weather? Trying to figure out how to pack.

    ahh... I was wondering if we'd have the youngest kid on board... I guess not. :)

    Have you cruised with an infant before? DD was 5 when we took her on her first cruise, so we're not really sure what we're in for with this.

    Yeah, I'm wondering what Galveston will be like in January (aside from the aforementioned fog). I'm assuming it will be hit-or-miss weather, like much of the gulf coast.

    I was also wondering how the Caribbean weather will be in January. I keep reading threads where some people say they thought on previous cruises that it was too cold to swim in the ports! I hope that we don't need to expect to be wearing a jacket on our beach days.. Does anyone know how best to dress in the Caribbean in January on here or should I post this question to the main forum?

    Anyone know which nights are designated for pirates and formal on our cruise? Does DCL only have one formal night?

    I think there's a formal night and a semi-formal night. No idea when they are!

    Someone posted about this on another thread - although it may have been on Cruise Critics. Said they called DCL and were told night 2 (Saturday, January 5, at sea) is formal, night 6 (Wednesday, January 9, Costa Maya) is pirates, and night 7 (Thursday, January 10, Cozumel) is semi-formal.

    Sorry, I didn't see this until today! Yes, January can be hit-or-miss in Galveston. Last year we were there January 6-8 and the temps ranged from 60 to 75. When we returned on the 15th, the low was 49 (about the time we docked), but even that day, the temperature got to a high of 67 by noon. There was fog on January 8 but not on the 15th.

    I also remember wearing my light jacket a couple nights on the cruise while walking outside. But in our ports (Jamaica, Caymen, Cozumel) it was mostly sunny, highs in the 80s. We did get a brief rain shower in Cozumel. I think I wore capris and shirts with 3/4 sleeves for most of the cruise and was quite comfortable.

    Just received my itinerary from Disney and it says the Pirate Deck Party is Day 5, Tuesday, Jan 8th, from 9:45 to 10:30. It does not identify the nights for the formal or semi-formal.

    We will all be dressing up for the Pirates "IN" the Caribbean party. This has been the highlight of our past three sailings!

    My boyfriend tends to be a quiet reserved kind of guy, I am thinking of bringing pirate stuff along and not telling him and trying to get him to wear it. I know that he won't if he only sees kids dressing up though, do adults without kids look crazy dressing up like pirates? Or is that pretty normal? I also wanted to do FE, but realized that was more of a family/kid centered activity so decided not to.
