Its kind of ironic...but the risk of snowstorms is what keeps us from flying out west. It wasn't so bad this winter but last winter there were terrible snow/ice storms that fell on the weekends shutting down major airports. People could not get another flight for days which meant you canceled the trip.

So we worry that we book some fab vacation in the Rockies and along comes some snowstorm that shuts down the airport and we can't go.

On the other side, I know someone who had to spend a few extra days at a ski resort in Wyoming because there was a big snow storm on the day he left and the airport shut down and he couldn't leave. Poor guy.

Speaking of storms....we had a bad one Friday night-Saturday and we had no power for 24 hours exactly. We have a generator so we survived.

Welcome, welcome, welcome......

Yes, the withdrawals never really go away....you just learn to live with the pain.

But having another cruise booked is the only way to cope.

We've never done an eastern - all western cruises for us, just the way the dates worked out.

Just switch to this cruise!

We have changed from Explorer 9 night on 3/09 to this wonderful Disney cruise. We just sailed on Carnival triumph in Jan., ready for another cruise.
This will be our first on DCL.
Me, DH, DS-11(on Sailing), DD-8 at sailing. We received the DCL dvd in the mail and that was it. The kids wanted to switch. MIL,FIL,SIL, BIL, nephew are condering it too.

It didn't see it is someone making at list of cruisers, ages and cabins?

Welcome to the Red Hot Chili Cruisers.

Looks like we have mixed up Ski-and-sea kids with ours. Ours should be as follows:

Just been reading the Times Travel pull out with a great picture of Aquatica on the front and we are all wishing we were going to Orlando this year. Oh well, just have to look at last years photo's again and keep putting the money into the holiday account.

Welcome Christi and Family.

Thank you for putting list together. When a few more have joined I can put the data on my webpage if you want, makes it look more tidy than posting in a thread.
Have a look and see what you think, I have done it for our Wonder cruise this month www.astersflorist.co.uk bottom link on left.
If anyone has a better suggestion that would be great.
Don't think we are doing Aquatica this year. Our SW/Busch passports are due for renewal end of year, will probably add Aquatica then as its only $40 for 2 years.
Wayne

My DS will be 13 & DD will be 8 when we sail.

We will also be traveling with my DH's family. A total of 14 of us definite so far & several more that are considering it. My twin nieces will be 12 & my nephews will be 13, 9 & 3.

Wayne,
I check out your webpage. That would be great if you could keep one for our cruise.

My SIL, BIL and DS-3 plus grandparents want to come, too.

Since you have all been on DCL before, is it as great as it looks on the dvd?
We have been on many cruises on different lines.
We just cruised 1/19/08. The kids love cruising. We asked them if they wanted to go to Disney World or a cruise next year. They choose a cruise.

We are very excited. We are going through post cruise depression.
I agree the only way to cure it ....is book another

No problem, I will do it when we get back from Florida (22nd Mar-6th Apr) if no-one posts a better option before then.
