    Hello everyone and welcome!

    For those that don't know me, I'm Alicia aka Leshaface and have been a DIS member for a few years now. I'm married to my best friend and partner-in-crime, Daniel aka DH.

    Just recently (VERY recently actually), I've become a DCL junkie! My DH, DB, Dsil, and I got off the Dream in June and had a blast! To read all about that trip, click here. We all had an AMAZING time and the moment I boarded the ship, was the moment I knew I would be obsessed with DCL.

    How this trip came about: So for those that didn't read my past TR, DH and I had signed up to book another cruise for next year while on the cruise, but the CM's were slammed with other guests trying to take advantage of the 10% off and OBC for any booked future cruises. So we filled out a card and they had told us they would be in contact within 2 weeks. Well, no call. And we still wanted to cruise! So DH ended up calling and the CM was able to see that we qualified for the discount and OBC! :banana: So we booked for another Bahamas Cruise on the Dream, living in June of 2012.

    For those that don't know, it's just the two of us. However, we're looking to expand the brand ;) and we want to do it soon. So we got to thinking: We don't want to start AFTER our cruise next year, because we'll be a year older. And we can't start now because how horrible would it be if we were to get pregnant before our cruise, and I couldn't have any fun (i.e. partake in Bahama Mama's ;), not look cute in dresses/bikinis). Not that being pregnant would be HORRIBLE but I wouldn't be able to do all the things I had wanted to do.

    We decided to see what else was available within the next few months and there was tons of options for much cheaper, AND much longer itineraries! We ultimately made the decision to switch the Bahamas cruise to the Mexican Riviera cruise for a few reasons:

    1) Was a waaay cheaper cruise
    2) Didn't have to fly meaning more money to play with on the ship!
    3) The port is only 2 1/2 hours from home
    4) We could try and get pregnant sooner :woohoo:
    5) It's a 7 night cruise compared to a 5 night cruise

    That's right folks. ANOTHER DISNEY CRUISE IN A FEW SHORT MONTHS! DECEMBER 11-18, 2011 :yay: I'm so beyond excited and I can't wait to share every aspect of the trip with you guys!....well, not every aspect. ;) But yes! This WILL be the cruise where we will officially try to start having kids! :lmao: :dance3:

    And I must thank Bonnie for the title of the TR, so THANK YOU BONNIE! :goodvibes

    I hope you'll join me in what will hopefully be a very successful trip! :goodvibes

    Ooh yay! I think I saw you over on the Meet Thread! :wave2:

    Hi Alison! ;)

    Hi! So glad you'll be following along on this TR! :banana:


    YAY! Glad you're here! :yay:

    I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I can't wait to write this next one! :woohoo:

    Oh awesome! Hopefully you'll be able to let me know what the weather is like when you get back/before I leave. I have NO idea what to pack or expect.


    Awesome! Hopefully I can be of some help to you and give you advice when I return for your future cruise! :goodvibes

    YAY! I'm so glad you all are here!

    Here is the itinerary for the trip:


    Sunday, Dec 11, 2011 - Los Angeles
    Monday, Dec 12, 2011 - At Sea
    Tuesday, Dec 13, 2011 - At Sea
    Wednesday, Dec 14, 2011 - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
    Thursday, Dec 15, 2011 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
    Friday, Dec 16, 2011 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
    Saturday, Dec 17, 2011 - At Sea
    Sunday, Dec 18, 2011 - Los Angeles

    This looks like the most PERFECT itinerary for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the Day at Sea on the Bahamas cruise and wished there was another Day at Sea. Looks like we'll be getting 3 Days at Sea on this cruise! :woohoo:

    I'm not actually sure where the port is exactly, I think in San Pedro and I don't know what time is ideal to show up, so I need to figure all that out. We will more than likely just leave from our hometown early that morning instead of staying the night in LA. Then again, we change our minds FREQUENTLY so this could change! :lmao:

    Hi, here I am!!! :)

    YAY, you mentioned me in your intro!!! ;)

    Following along, can't wait to hear all the great things you will be planning for this trip. I know that you agreed that cruising is addictive, after your first cruise...but after a 7-night cruise, you will only want to do cruises that are 7 nights and longer! :lmao: Having 3 days at sea will be total bliss! :goodvibes

    Hello and welcome! :)

    Of COURSE I was going to mention you! If it wasn't for your amazing title, I wouldn't have started this yet!

    And you are probably going to be spot on regarding the bolded! You can always call it before it happens! :lmao:
