    Here's a little background info on our cruise.

    We are celebrating Peggy's (TiggersPal) 50th birthday on this cruise. All four of the siblings agreed to spend their 50th birthdays together, and now 'the baby' hits 50! :scared1: Her DH, Jose also turn 50 this year and I turn 60 :scared:, plus, I do believe it is their 10th anniversary also. So lots of celebrating going on. My cabin-mate will be our big sister, Dianne and brother Paul and his DF Jill will be rounding out the group. Jose, Dianne and Jill have never cruised before. Paul has, just not on DCL and this will be Peg's third DCL cruise and my fifth!

    I'll also be making my 10th visit to WDW the week before the cruise...playing with our cruise-mates Ian and Sukie and Cheri (Iankh & NotSoLittleMermaid). I think Peg & Jose will stay a while after the cruise to go to Cape Canaveral and Epcot...I'll try and convience them to do the Epcot part BEFORE the cruise, though.

    We will be at a family table for dining, but I know who to contact to try and arrange for all of us in late dining to have the same rotation. So those of you who are going to link dining, once your tables are made, I can turn all the info over to DCL and we can try to have our tables clustered together in the same rotation (I vote for 8PM)!

    OK....I'm going to go hunt down Cheri now!

    :yay: Got you Marilyn--note asterisk in front of your info in post 1.

    Is LATE DINING the same as 2nd SEATING? I need to get consistent here but am confused.

    I also posted FE for pfishgirl as she mentioned it so anyone interested in Fish Extender Gifting please post and I will add FE to the back of your entry on page 1 so there is one master list.

    I put BTB for those I think are going on this cruise and the Western that follows. If I got you wrong, let me know--either marked in error or not posted yet.

    I think I heard that BTB cruisers do not have to disembark but that may have changed.

    Off to work---

    Thanks Jan.

    Not sure about the late dining/2nd seating question, though I guess it means the same.

    Yes, we are doing B2B at the moment. I believe B2B cruisers are escorted off the ship after everyone else has disembarked, then they check in again and get a chance to take photos of the empty terminal, and are back onboard within an hour. Hopefully I will do my laundry that day!

    Yes, I believe Late & 2nd is the same thing.. If not, I apologize. We have the 2nd seating for dinner. I requested 8pm, since we will have 4 kids in our group aged 5 - 15.

    No, we are sadly Not doing the B2B anymore :sad1: I wish we were I was so excited it would of been our 1st B2B. But, I was told you Do Have to get Off the ship and all that, but, within an hour or two you're back on the ship

    Hi all! Just checking in. Jan, great job.:thumbsup2 Thanks for keeping the thread up for us. Don't mind if you add our ages. Harry and I will both be 57. Our room number is 2509 but I am hoping the upgrade fairy will surprise us with a porthole. We have second seating for dinner. We are spending a few days at WDW pre cruise. I have not started planning the WDW part yet as I am hoping for some good deals to come out.:goodvibes

    And for those of you who may be booking on property and buying tickets, you will most likely have free dining! :thumbsup2

    Yes, we'll be there for 3 nights before the cruise, hopefully at BWV/BCV - I'm going to try and switch at the 7 month window. I will also be there with my DD for 7 nights after the cruise, this time at VWL - that's a 17 day vacation and I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

    We are flying to Orlando on Sept 11th after the kiddies are done with school so we won't be doing WDW before the cruise, but we may get a chance for a half day WDW visit on Saturday after the cruise..

    Sounds great!!! I haven't booked anywhere yet, but we will get into SSR no problem. Like you though I would like to stay at BCV/BWV at some point, either before or after.

    We're using up some points at the start of the cruise so, at the mo, have 1 night at SSR and 2 nights at VWL booked. :rolleyes: I stayed at BWV with my sons last October and loved it so would really like to change to there for at least the first 3 nights... :thumbsup2 Fingers crossed. Otherwise I'll switch to all nights at SSR - DH hasn't stayed there yet and IMO the rooms are lovely...:goodvibes
