    Hello, we (self, husband, 12yo DD, 7yo DD, 5yo DD/DS twins) will be on this cruise with you all. We booked today, got an awesome military rate on two adjoining verandah staterooms! Blessed to be able to use the military discount, as a family of 6 we could't afford it every year otherwise. Soooo excited. We went on the Dream last October for 4 nights, it was the best family vacation we have ever had. We were sad this sailing didn't hit Castaway Cay, but we are excited to travel on the "re-imagined" ship with some ports of call my kids haven't seen yet.

    We plan on going out to the beach, maybe to see the Sea turtles in Grand Cayman, but probably will skip Cozumel.
    I saw some folks were discussing the martini mixing class, can we sign up for that on our activities or do we have to wait until we get on the ship?
    We requested to have the animators palace twice on the rotation, and we were told about the newest restaurant which will have a Latin flare. We are having a Palo dinner on the second night and Palo brunch on the last day.

    Any advice on other shore excursions or tips/tricks about this particular ship would be welcomed! Look forward to meeting you all!

    Welcome aboard!!! :cheer2: We are having a 3 pm meet first day at Promanade lounge. Please join us! We also have a FE group set up. PM your info to me if you are interested in that. We have talked about linking for dining also, but do not have anyone taking the lead for that yet.

    There is a 13 yo girl onboard and our 13 (turning 14 onboard) grandson also.

    We have signed up for excursion in Grand Cayman that goes to the Turtle farm and at Cozumel we are doing the Mayan ruins.

    You will sign up for Martini tasting at Guest Services once you are onboard.

    And lastly, but certainly not least! We thank your family for your service!!

    Did you get my message? I don't see it in my sent items so I'm wondering if it never went through or if I just dreamt I sent it

    Myself and Hubby will be joining everyone for our very first Cruise (and hopefully not last) I have been trying to get him to do this for years. I figure this will be a great cruise to get everything figured out. We are late seating for dinner, I have the 3 pm meet in my notes, and would love to join the FE so will send a PM next. Looking forward to meeting everyone =}

    Welcome!!! :woohoo: Plan a little extra money in your budget for rebooking onboard. You will get a 10% discount plus a little onboard credit on your next cruise. :rolleyes1 The deposit for the next cruise will only be 10% onboard rather than the usual 20% and you can book a 3 day as far out as you can and then transfer all those savings to a cruise you really want to take. :thumbsup2

    I will add you to the FE group! :yay:

    diesel2512 and ppruett1

    Hello and welcome!

    My name is Jay and my (much) better half is Katie.

    This will be our first visit to Grand Cayman so I won't be much help with advice there. However, DW and I are big fans of the martini tastings so I can steer you in the right direction there! As a matter of fact, we did the martinis twice on or last cruise as Alex (on the Dream) promised different recipes. She delivered.:thumbsup2 You can't book any tastings/classes (martini, mixology, tequila/margarita, beer, wine, whiskey- I know I'm missing some...) ahead of time. DW and I usually make a beeline for guest services on boarding and book a couple (really! just a couple!) . We're planning a little meeting on the first afternoon so we can compare notes. Hopefully we can hit some of the same tastings. We did that with our FE group last July and it was a blast.

    Looking forward to meeting you too!


    Also, Pooh_Girl, ppruett1, or any others with second seating, I am open to linking for dining. I will run the disclaimer that we are not traveling with our boys (this is a surprise to DW for our anniversary- no she doesn't know yet:scared1:) so it will just be us adults. Children do not bother us at all but we do enjoy the occasional cocktail or two. We're not drunks but may show up with a relaxed grin- particularly after a tastings. :rolleyes1


    Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    Hello Peeps! Just booked this cruise using the MTO discount! (Moms retired) It will be 8 of us on this cruise; we have 2 connecting rooms. Does anyone have any experience with sailing in Nov? We have sailed on the Dream and the Magic during Spring Break. (both times) How cold will it be?:confused3

    We are so excited to be sailing on the "new" Magic! We just booked today when the Florida resident rates came out. We've sailed on all 4 ships and can't wait to sail on the Magic again. We are retirees living our dream on the gulf coast about 2 hours from WDW. Previous Disney cruises:
    Wonder - 7-2006 (our 40th wedding anniversary)
    Dream - 7-2011 (our 45th wedding anniversary(
    Magic - 4-2012
    Dream - 9-2012
    Fantasy - 10-2012
    Fantasy - 5-2013

    Can't wait for this cruise!!!

    Booked this cruise tonight. Need to be sleeping because I have to be at work at 7:00. Too excited to sleep! We booked using the MTO rate. This will be my 5th cruise with Disney and hubby's 4th. We will be doing a B2B next May. Looking forward to being on the Magic. Have cruised on the Dream and the Wonder.

    DH and I are on the late dining and would like to link.:) We are in stateroom 6522. Let me know if you need our names to link. We are interested in the FE, would love to do a tasting of anything alcoholic while onboard Am looking forward to meeting folks in the Promenade Lounge at 3 on the first day. In case you all didn't notice, I am really excited about cruising again. First cruise on the Magic. Next November hope to cruise on the Fantasy to complete all four ships.
