    Wow... No one had booked this yet??

    We are booking this as a back-to-back after our 5-night double dip!! This will be our 10th cruise! It will be myself, DH (ssanders79), and our sweet DD, who will be 6 1/2 at the time of sailing! Yay!

    If anyone is interested in doing a Fish Extender exchange on this cruise, PM ssanders79 with your stateroom number and who's in your stateroom (names and ages if desired).

    Yes - it was our 3rd cruise on the Fantasy and heaven as always :)

    Looking forward to boarding the Magic in Oct (although I must admit, we will miss a lot of friends we made on the Fantasy!)

    Pretty sure I am doing this cruise, with another sailing buddy of mine from the Southern meet group.

    We will be on a b2b too, we are doing the Dream, then Magic, we have a one day between on land, so its a different kind of back to back:rotfl2:

    Hey dizzi!!! We were originally on that Fantasy cruise!!!!! I'm torn - love the crew on the Fantasy & gonna miss them. Its going to be hard to wait a while year before seeing them again. Made a few close buddies last week. However, excited to 1) get back on the Magic, 2) be on the "inaugural" cruises after dry dock, 3) experience a B2B, and 4) go to Miami!!! Oh yeah (LOL)!!

    You have to complete 10, so you are Platinum on your 11th

    I meant the Dream...
    sorry

    it is a 4 day dream and then one day on land then the Magic to no where.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    But I am not sure I want to do the Dining rooms on the Magic on the 2Night.

    My DD and my DH will not be on the 2 night and I kind of want it to be new to us all at once.

    But I guess If I do one Palo, it will only b one, dining room I see after the refurb.

    Yes. And I'm married - shocking right? One kid, 4 cats LOL. We actually had 5; Brutus passed away on New Years Eve. We had 3 cats when we got married - I had one, DH had 2. Here's the story: I have a friend who does serious animal rescue; puppy mills, abuse, things of that nature with a rescue group. In 2011, her group got a call about a cat 'sanctuary' where there were 700 cats, many very sick, etc. in Gainesville, FL. It was such a big undertaking that the big Humane Society of the US had to come and help them. They euthanized the ones that were too sick (which I think was only about 60), then took the rest to get fixed, medicated, dipped for various things & whatever medical care needed. I followed her thru the process. They had 3 warehouses full of these cats. After 90 days, they were adoptable (except the ones being kept for evidence). She told me that there was a Bengal cat that needed a good home and lots of attention & she thought we would be the perfect house for many reasons. Now Bengals are usually $3,000-5,000 cats, as they are some crazy hybrid where someone had decided to breed a domestic cat with a wild animal (an Asian leopard cat). We agreed to drive 2 hours up and take a look. The cats were $5! While there, my daughter (4 1/2) at the time wanted a cat all her own, so we picked up a nice orange tabby cat (who was her buddy until he passed away). We didn't mean to have that many, but we do and do because we did a good deed. Actually, 4 seems like a good number. 5 was too many; too many fights even in a big house where they can spread out.

    Last year, she went to Jacksonville for another 700 cat rescue. I told her I was not answering my phone if she called again! (She did not).

    Hi, I'm Jennifer, we just moved to South Florida and the one nice thing I can say about the transition is that I am now closer to Port Canaveral and very close to the Port of Miami. I'm super excited to sail this 2-day Cruise to Nowhere for several reasons....

    1- it's our anniversary.
    2- our first cruise without our 2 DD's (9 &11)
    3- this cruise will make give us our CC Gold status.
    4- give me a quick DCL fix till we sail in 2014.
    5- meet new DCL freaks (I mean friends :))
    6- first time on The Magic.
    7- did I mention no kids?

    We drove to the Port of Miami last Saturday after we booked this cruise to see The Wonder in port. We had to leave before it set sail, if not, I probably would have tried to swim after the ship. Our last cruise on the Dream this past June was amazing and it was great to meet friends before sailing. It definitely does not seem that there are many people booked yet. Only 206 days till we set sail.

    Looking forward to chatting with you all :)

    Jennifer

    Wow is the Bengal amazing?

    I am a BIG animal lover. Crazy to hear of 700 cats!
