    I'm not sure if anyone is interested, but for our upcoming cruise this June on the Fantasy, we have a large group of Dis members that started a Facebook Group. It is locked down so only people in our group can see it, but it has been a great way to get to know others on our cruise. Many of us have been communicating on the FB page for more than a year.

    If anyone is interested, I would be happy to start a FB Group.

    OK. I set one up and have it so that the only people who can see the FB posts will be members of the group.

    If you would like to be added to the group, please PM me your FB name and I will get you added.

    Add us to the list. We were looking to take the kids to Europe, and this seems like a grand way... We're coming from Vermont, with kids DS 12, DDs 9, and 7. Stateroom 8018.

    We also have a last day of school on the 7th, but it's a small private school, and we can probably convince the teacher to do the end of school parties etc on Wednesday or Thursday and maybe get a pre cruise day in.... Definitely staying a day or two in Barcelona afterwards.

    Looking forwards to meeting everyone on our first cruise...

    The time is going quickly! One year and one month to go. I am thinking about Hotels for Barcelona .The ABD pre cruise in Barcelona sounds nice but expensive.

    Hello there!
    My DH, 6 yr old DD and I were on the Magic in January and we booked this Med cruise :) We are so excited since this will be our first trip to Europe!
    (Of course my DD doesn't have a clue where Europe is)
    We have sailed all 4 ships now; we just sailed the Fantasy in April. We've mostly sailed the Wonder, and the Magic only one time. We live in Orlando, FL, so it makes it easy :)
    I am also on the hunt for hotel stay and hopefully soon I'll start to see prices for flights. I'm not sure if we want to stay a couple days beforehand or afterwards in Barcelona, but we definitely plan on sight seeing.
    :dance3:

    I also just requested to be part of the facebook page.
    Take care everyone, and I hope to share lots of good finds :thumbsup2
