    There are now some inside staterooms up but they are a good bit higher since yesterday. I did get the 10% off for moving an onboard booking though

    Yep, 7/18/07 and 7/6/10, so we did both with you! Seems we both have good taste in cruises ;)


    I am looking forward to repeating ports too, and we also booked the 7 nighter before it (hoping it works out and we can do both) so that our days aren't so crazy. Last time my kids were 3yo and 11 months and it was exhausting to have so many 12 hour days. Plan this time is to hit something on the 7 night, then different excursion on this cruise. Kids will be 9, 6, and 3 this time, so better, but the (then) 3yo can be a HANDFUL when she wants to be. Plus we're coming from AZ this time, so planning on some serious jet lag (10.5 hour flight for us from Phoenix to London!, after the 2 hour drive to Phoenix, then another 2 hour flight to Barcelona), so really hoping to be able to relax and get acclimated before the new ports on this cruise!

    I am soooooo glad to have 4 sea days! I'm not sure it matters what the kids ages are....it's exhausting no matter what to repeat those 12-hour days! (tho having only one, I can't image how you did 3...)

    We're really happy to be returning to Villefranche, as this was the surprise favorite from last time! And, at our daughter's request, we'll do Pisa instead of Cinque Terrre! No idea what we'll do in Malta, but we really liked it last time. It was so hot in August, though, hence the June booking!

    We'll be joining- DH, myself, and DD (age 4). We'll be celebrating my husband's graduation from residency and our 7th wedding anniversary! We love the DISboards community on the cruises; hope we get to do FEs!

    I like the Mickey in a toga.
    Maybe a toga might be required instead of grass skirts.

    Toga, toga, toga!

    We're in too...because someone with a Disney problem:lmao: convinced us to give up our concierge ways (23,500 was too rich for our blood and there was none left this morning anyway) and book a cat 9 and 10 so that we could cruise again....

    It's me Mindy, DH (Jim)(Bigbootee), DS Sam(12) and DD Haylee (12) We will be gold by the time we go, but not in time to book. Look forward to hanging with ya all.

    Are toga parties Greek or Roman? Does it matter when we're going to both?

    We did Pisa last time, don't think we're going to do it again...I almost died last time...probably could do it no problem this time....want to see other things as well...and if I remember your daughter stayed on the ship and didn't do Cinque Terre...she would love it.

    We really felt the pain of so many heavy port days - our surprise most fun day was Pisa - we did an afternoon excursion and it was so nice to not have to be up and out so early as we were every other port - especially as it was the day after Rome. This time because we are B2Bing with the Venice trip, we'll do ROME heavy with this sailing since there is a sea-day the next day. And we'll save FLORENCE for the next sailing and do a lighter Rome day then...

    which brings me to why I quoted here because I remembered talking to some fellow passengers on LaSpezia day in 2007 and they were telling us how absolutely lovely Cinque Terre was and we were thinking that might be what we do with this sailing for La Spezia. Never too early to start thinking it through, eh? I need to make a master list (LOL).

    We did Pisa last time at our sons' request - they really wanted to climb the tower, so we booked an excursion that let us!

    Last time we had air via DCL and had a direct flight from ATL (redeye). I looked for comparable time this summer to see what the fare is and if they still offered the same flight (they do) and it's $1540. I checked from Jacksonville and it was $1300 - the flight connects in ATL onto the SAME flight from ATL to BCN - that's insane - a $240 difference - for the four of us, that's excursion money right there, except we don't have to pay for parking in ATL but we would in JAX - unless we just rented a car to get to JAX and then one when we got back to get home - but I love the idea of non-stop direct flights. We usually use DCL but since this cruise is via DVC and our second-half is through DCL, I'm gonna let our travel agent advise me and help me.

    You'd be fine, now!

    Very possible...but I wasn't the one calculating, tho 10% off 9000+ is still above $8000 and I'm not there...

    Cinque Terre was fabulous! I have some memorable, amazing pictures! However, there were some major storms that caused some major damage to the trail. Here's hoping they're able to rebuild!

    My husband and I booked this last night. By this morning, the rate was over $900 MORE for the very same cabin!!! I am so glad our travel agent booked it yesterday for us! We even tried moving our November 2012 Fantasy booking to this sailing to transfer our on-board discount but the rates were enough higher today that it ate up the discount and then some.

    We did the 6/29/11 10-night Med cruise and had an amazing time, as did our kids, DD23 and DS18. It will be odd to do this one without them. The nice thing about doing some of the same ports again is that now we can go back and spend our time at the places we really loved in Rome and Florence and we can try new things in Malta and Villefranche. The real reason we booked this one in particular is that we have always wanted to see Greece. The vision I have of us sailing into port near Mykonos is a daydream that will get me through any tough times over the next 16+ months. :)

    Joanne! I can't believe we'll be sailing together again! How fun it will be to see you and Roger and the boys again, after all these years, evevn if we won't have Sharon bringing us cut fruit on a private beach (ahhhh.... memories of that day at Castaway Cay)! :grouphug:

    Hi, Kim!! It will be wonderful to see you and your family again! Howard and I loved Barcelona so much that I am hoping we can schedule this in a way that permits us some time in that beautiful city. :lovestruc

    Looking forward to getting to know everyone!
