    We're in. Just hope now that DS's school schedule is what we think it will be (2 days off the first week of March).

    It will be me (Jeff), DW (Suz), and DS14.

    This will be our 12th DCL cruise, but we still hold one prior to this that we haven't moved yet, so maybe it will be 13. This will be our 4th Western. We did a Western last summer and it was our first time to Costa Maya and we loved it. Can't wait to get back.

    We just finally made a decision and booked this cruise. We bounced around the idea of Feb, then April, and now finally decided to go midway between the two. So March 1st it is.

    This will be our 3rd DCL cruise. Our first cruise was on the Magic April 2011 - Eastern Carribean, our second was on the Wonder September 2012 - California Pacific Coast Cruise. And this will be our third.

    I am so happy to be going back to the Carribean. The Pacific was a wonderful cruise, but the weather is not that great compared to the Carribean; nor is the water as crystal blue clear. Therefore, after having experienced both I am not surprised that DCL pulled out of the Pacific (its a hard sell). So Cheers to all of us Cruising the Western Carribean!!!!

    Our travelling party consists of me (Renata), DH (Michael), DD (Mikayla - at time of cruising 8) and DS (Maro - at time of cruising 6).

    Looking forward to meeting you all

    We are going to WDW in March as well! We are surprising our kids with a trip. We are going for their spring break.

    You trip sounds like an awesome one. Seeing both Disney's. Your kids must be thrilled?
