    Current FE guidelines Budgets: That is YOUR OWN personal decision. Minimum and maximum amounts to spend WILL NOT be assigned. Only you know how much you can afford/want to spend on it so that is up to you completely.

    Gifts: Do not feel bad if you give only 1 gift per cabin/family. DW and I did this last time, that's what our budget was. If you want to and have the budget to give adult gifts and kid gifts that's fine too. Our last FE consisted of some people who gave to everybody and others, like us, who just gave for the entire cabin or family if there was more than 1 cabin. As long as it is heartfelt and fun, that's all we're looking for here.

    Homemade/crafts: Again, your personal choice. If you enjoy doing this type of stuff and have the time/budget(often cheaper btw) then have a blast and do whatever you feel like. If you are not the craftsy type, please go right ahead and just buy your gifts. Any and all types are appreciated.

    Theme: No over riding particular them you must adhere to. If you have for your gifts, as many people like to do(Cruise meet theme, or Pirate night for example) then that's great. If you just want to be random and give fun stuff, the more the merrier.
    You must give a gift if you are signing up!! I've seen a couple of mentions that some people are not giving stuff, just hoarding. I really would hate to see that happen here. This is about the GIVING.

    :welcome: aboard Melissa. Glad you have decided to join us in the Eastern Caribbean. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask since I have just returned from this intinerary on Saturday. I asked if I could stay on the Magic but the CM's politely said no. :rotfl2:

    I did the Eastern Caribbean about 10 years ago on Carnival. I loved the islands, but the ship...well...not Disney. As for DCL, I've done a 4 night double dip on the Wonder and I just did a five night double dip on the Dream this past August. I'm really excited to experience the Fantasy!!!!

    I have not been on the Dream yet so you'll have to help us out with all the Dream class ships have to offer. A double dip at CC sounds great. Were just there last week. We will miss the Magic but we are very excited for the Fantasy.

    The Magic at CC :cloud9:

    The Fantasy as of 101311 :banana::banana: She should be floated out soon. :cool1::cool1:

    The first thing you're going to notice about the new ships are the SIZE. They are huge! Where the Wonder (because I've never been on the Magic :) ) is intimate, the Dream is grand.

    They are both amazing, but completely different! I'm sure I'll feel the same way about the Fantasy. This will be my longest cruise with Disney, and I can't wait!!!

    Thanks. We booked 7542 which is a 5c cabin just forward of the mid elevators. Is that a good location on the Fantasy? We usually book near the aft elevators on the Magic but the walk from the front to back seems long so we are trying more in middle of the ship.
    You will really love the longer 7 day cruises. The shorter cruises were rush rush rush for us on the Wonder. You get to relax and enjoy the ship especially starting off with 2 sea days. You will also notice immediately the cruisers are different as well. Most of the cruisers will be DCL veterans therefore will be a lot more relaxed.

    We are booked on this cruise as well - however, I am not sure we will be on it in 2013 - I REALLY want to do a transatlantic, so I am anxiously awaiting for the Magic and Wonder itineraries to come out.

    I think midship is the place to be. I'm in a 9B on deck 2 midship. I had a forward cabin on the Dream and did not like it at all. It was quite a hike from the forward elevator to my cabin. The hallways in the forward part of the ship aren't straight, so every time you turn another corner you think you're almost there...but you're not! So this time around I made sure to select a cabin rather than going the GTY route. I know I will be happy in the stateroom I've chosen on the Fantasy!

    Good luck with you getting a TA cruise but if not then welcome aboard. We met a DISser that loves the TA cruises on the Magic last week. Sounds like fun to have 14 days on the Magic. :thumbsup2

    Glad to hear you were able to get a good stateroom location. :thumbsup2 Thanks for your advise. We were thinking about the verandahs off the stern but that looked like a long walk to just about anything. Booking day 1 is nice in that we can pick our stateroom. We were able to get a non-connecting stateroom midship. There are very few non-connectors on the Fantasy. The opposite of the Magic. We always seemed to get loud neighbors so one less avenue of noise. :thumbsup2

    Looking forward to going back to St Thomas.
