    Someone on our June 15, 2013 board linked this to our thread, so after spending the bulk of my afternoon reading it, I'm bumping it for others who may get pleasure out of reading your TR.

    We did the 10- night Med in 2010, and are so looking forward to going again! I had spent so much time pondering what to do that I started a pre TR as therapy to get all the details out of my head! In going over what we did in 2010, I was able to clarify to myself what I would and wouldn't do again. And, in reading your TR, I have to again re think some of my plans. I got quite a few laughs....many of your pictures are duplicates of what exist on my computer!!!!

    Thank you for this trip report you did a great job and have inspired me to at least keep a journal this Summer and next! (and thank you Kim-MinnieDiva for posting the link on our meet board) I am so excited about the cruise next Summer I can hardly research what we have planned for this Summer. :surfweb:
    Did you do a TR on Aulani? I am off to search, as that is what I should be researching!
    Thanks again,
    Sue

    This thread just got bumped, again this is one of the top three trip reports I have EVER read. So did you ever end up doing one for the Fantasy cruise, how was it??! We're on the Dream in April, please direct me to your TR if you did one? Thanks!

    I just hunted this report down again, someone was asking questions about Rome and thought this would be a perfect place to start. But I can't remember if this included Rome, I read it so long ago, it does yes? And guess what, we are going to Africa on an 18 day safari in the Fall:yay: and you've inspired me to journal the whole trip:thumbsup2. I've never done that before, but how can I not, right? It's a 21 hr trip over there, with two flights, then we change locations 8 different times. Can you imagine the details, I have to remember everything. Hey, did you ever do a TR on the Fantasy? I miss your trip reports girl!!!

    Your trip sounds AMAZING!!!! You will be so glad if you journal. It will help you remember and relive it for the rest of your life!!! I want to hear more about it! Are you doing an Adventures By Disney????

    Hi!!! Did you love your Fantasy cruise? We're on the Dream in April and are looking forward to it. Anyway, my husband's job is sending us to Africa:thumbsup2, as a 10 yr associate, he earns a month off sabattical and one of their adventurous tours (he works for a travel agency). If you want to look it up, just google OAT (Overseas Adventure Travel) and click on Africa, we are doing the Best of Kenya and Tanzania tour, cannot wait!!!!

    Well, we are three weeks away from our amazing Africa trip, I cannot wait! Anyway, I was trying to do a search for more of your trip reports a few weeks ago, and could not remember your screen name!! It was driving me crazy. You are definitely the top ranking Dis trip reporter of all time :) for me and wanted more. Can you pleeeease do one for your Oct cruise? :thumbsup2 and god knows I won't remember your screen name again, so if you do, please put a link here? Oh I would so enjoy that, your photography is amazing. I just hope I can come close on our upcoming trip!

    I found this last night and just read it straight through. What a great report. Thank you for writing.

    I was on DCL's first Med cruise and have been wanting to go back ever since. I don't know how people survive the 10 day trip, the middle sea day was so needed. It was fun to see the cruise through your eyes.

    It is a shame you didn't enjoy Palermo more. While it was not the highlight of the trip it was a great day. We went to a local street market, the cathedral, and walked the streets where the Godfather movies were supposed to have been filmed. It was definitely a local flavor type of tour. I did recognize a couple of the locations in your photos.

    Now, I need to go search out more MED TR's and start planning a return cruise. Thank again for writing.
