Works for me, although I'n not creative enough to come up with a suggestion for a name. Maybe something to do with the holidays since we're going in December?

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.

It worked! I just transferred the reservation to Dreams Unlimited so we now have the $200 onboard credit from Disney AND the $200 onboard credit from Dreams Unlimited. This thread has saved me $200!

Sure, we could name our cruise. Anyone have any great ideas for a name.

We did some reading up on St.Croix and I am a little nervous about this port now too. There is a rum factory that could be interesting to visit and Buck Island. This may be a port where I will book a excursion with Disney.
We just booked last night. It will be me, DH, DDs 8&9 at sailing time and my mom. We were on a land/sea in May 07 and loved most of it, except Nassau. Hope to meet some of you all :-)

I think Disney agreeing to dock there will make a difference. I can't see Disney taking us to someplace that isn't up to Disney standards as far as excursions available, etc. They have almost 2 years until we arrive to come up with stuff for us to do so I'm waiting to see.

Hello

I have not booked this cruise yet but I am thinking about it. It will be myself (Tonya 29 at time of cruise ) and my son (Zane 8 at the time of the cruise). We took our first cruise on the Magic this past September and my son was hooked! I would love to go in Sept again because the rates are the best then but my son does not want to miss football so it looks like we are limited to after Thanksgiving. I am just worried about the weather Has anyone cruised at this time of year before? How was Castaway Cay?

We were on the 3 day Wonder cruise on 12/6/07. The weather was a perfect 85 for the three days and the waters were calm.

Welcome

We were just on the Dec. 2nd cruise and thought the weather was perfect too. We had a beautiful day at Castaway. We have cruised other times of the year too and we had less rocking this time than anytime we've sailed.
