I hope you are enjoying the Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!

We just did the 3 day cruise on 12/6/07 in the Roy Suite. It was wonderful, but too quick. Unfortunately, we didn't rebook anything when we were on the ship , so I don't know how to save any additional $$ for this one. Anybody have suggestions?
Hi and welcome Andy, ToniAnn and Elizabeth,

Nice to meet you. We got off the ship on the 6th, so you were on right after us. Did you have a good cruise? We had a great time, but you were right, it did go way too fast. The only suggestion I have for saving money, etc might be to place your reservation with Dreams Unlimited for the on board credit since you didn't reserve onboard. I think they are offering double credit or something like that. Maybe someone else might have some suggestions too. At least by booking this cruise so far out ( 2years) we all probably have saved some money that way.

I will talk to you soon!

Vicki

If anyone is interested in a fish extender gift exchange I made this magnet design we could use. It's the same one I desinged for the year just added our destinations and changed the date. I know it is still 2 years just wanted to post it for everyone.

I like your magnet. We just did a secret santa gift exchange on our last cruise in Dec and it was a lot of fun! I would enjoy a fish extender gift exchange too. Reading your magnet gets me excited for this cruise even if it is still 2 years away

Hello all. I have never heard of a "fish extender", but I am assuming it is a secret santa gift exchange? I have been to both St. Thomas and St. Croix before. In an old company, we had locations on both islands and I got to them every so often. Like everywhere else, there are some very nice parts and some not so nice parts to the islands. But.... the nice parts are very beautiful! If you like shopping, St. Thomas is the place to go. It is much nicer than the Bahamas. Our cruise in December had perfect weather and very calm seas. The Roy Suite was so "wonder"ful, that you almost never wanted to leave the room! We had a group of seven that was pretty tired out from a trip to WDW before, so we did not get to experience all we should have on the ship. I am looking forward to seven days with just the 3 of us, so we can experience as much as possible.

hello Vicki
sorry I havnt returned your message. Thank you for the christmas card. Emmy had her surgery last week. She is starting to feel better. I hope you had a great New Years. Danie spent the night with a school friend, I guess they had a great time.

Do we want to do the Secret Santa again. Also on this next cruise I want to make arrangement for us to get a group photo. I'm also thinking about a scrappbooking on one of the at Sea days.

I think we are going to DL next Oct. Since our cruise is in 09 I need a Disney Fix.

Talk to you soon
Virginia

Hi Virginia,

I am glad that your daughter's surgery went well and that she is starting to feel better. I am sure her throat was sore for quite some time. The kids went back to school yesterday and it has been very cold here. It is finally going to warm into the 30s and 40s.

We didn't do too much for new years. marty and the kids did go swimming at night. Our cat of 13 years had passed away that day, so it was a pretty sad day around here. What did you do for new years?

I definitely want to do the secret santa game again. That was so much fun! I know mommyoftwininfants was talking about doing a fish extender gift exchange. i am sure that they are pretty much the same thing. I am open to either one. I think a group photo would be a great idea. I wish we would have done this for our last cruise. Oh well... I would also be interested in a scrapbooking day. Lots of neat ideas here. I can't wait for this cruise. It will be so much fun to be on the ship for 7 nights, instead of only 4.

We should also try to meet with each other some other place besides the sailaway party. It is always so crowded there and hard to tell who is a fellow dis'er even if they are wearing lime green

I am looking forward to seeing your website/blog for this cruise - please let me know if I can help you in any way.

I hope to talk to you soon!

Vicki

Hello all!
I was wondering if we should "name" our cruise . On the last one I took, the 3-day Wonder on 12/6/07, we came up with a "Surf and Turf" theme as most everyone on the thread also did a land portion at WDW. Those that were real creative on a computer even used the theme on their door decorations. Anyone have a good idea for our cruise? We early participants to this thread can vote and give our cruise a "permanent" name.

I did a little research on this and have to admit I'm a bit nervous with this stop in the itinerary. It seems like there is only one other cruiseline stopping there at the moment. St. Croix did (or is doing) lots of improvements to their port so they have attracted Disney to use them as a stop. Our cruise is 2 years away so I'm hoping they have developed lots of things to do/places to shop by the time we arrive. I suspect this one is much cheaper than the Western cruise the next week on Dec 12 because of St. Croix being one of the stops.

Thanks for the tip! I just sent a request to Dreams Unlimited to see if they do $200 in addition to the $200 we got from Disney already by booking on board.

I don't see the advantage of moving our reservation to an agent unless we get something from the agent that we didn't get booking directly with Disney. An additional $200 onboard credit would do that for me! We'll see what happens. I also sent our reservation to a couple other TAs who were at Mousefest in December to see what their quotes might look like. My own, cruisingco.com, couldn't beat the DCL direct pricing and $200 onboard credit so I haven't transfered the booking to them.
