I was on the Disney Cruise website and I was checking to see if there has been any change in the fare since I booked last Sept. I wasn't positive, but it seemed to me that the total cost was down. I wasn't certain because I received the 10% rebooking discount, so I was unsure what the full cost was at the time that I booked. I called my TA and she called Disney. She told me that the difference in fare is because the fuel surcharge has been removed. This saves me a couple of hundred dollars on our 2 cabins
I'm not sure if I am the only person who did not know about this, but I thought I would spread the word just in case.

I was very excited yesterday. I was checking the DCl to see if our cruise had gone down.
I noticed it had by $800.
I emailed our travel agent and asked her to rebook.

I received an email back from her saying that the price I gave her did not exist.

I only checked the price for 3 people. I wonder which kid would want to stay home?

I should of known that it was to good to be true. It did seem like a big savings.

I was just thinking of all the Konk Coolers Erik and I could drink.

It is 63 degrees out right now.

I know that t is not going to last. All of our snow has melted.
Now, I have to go out and clean up the backyard.

I offered Matt $100 to clean up after the dog. He wants to by an XBOX 360.
But, I don't think that is is going to take me up on the offer.

Hi All,
Bad news, me and my group will not be sailing with you this year.


Our youngest is getting married in June and between the wedding and the cruise monies due aroung the same time , something had to go.. ( he, he,he) jost joking .

After much discussion, yelling, and many tears the wedding is back on and the cruise is off

This is the easy part, as I haven't told our grandchildren yet .. that will be hard...........

We hope you all have a great time and no matter where I will be, you know where my heart will be the morning of sail away.. You know I will be watching it on the web....
sorry
gg

There certainly will be a wide variety of nurses aboard. Let's hope we don't have to use any of our nursing skills. I intended to sit and soak up the sun with pina colotas (spelling) in hand. Somebody though needs to tell me about FE;s and what I am supposed to do. I am sorry GG that you can't make the cruise but I hope your daughter has the wedding of a lifetime. Well I am getting an admission, so I have to go. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Sorry GG, Hope you get to cruise sooner than later and you enjoy the best wedding ever. Good luck telling the Grandchildren, that will be hard.


For the FE I will let Maria explain if she does not mind, we played a different version before so don't want to post anything to confuse, let her keep it simple for everyone.

Thanks. I just want to make sure I am doing the FE's right. I keep reading so many things. I don't know my stateroom yet, but will let you know as soon as I do. We booked through USAA and haven't gotten that info yet. Another long night at work. But without it wouldn't be able to meet you guys in 5 months. I will have to find out how you guys put all those cool pics up too! Christi, I hope you enjoyed the 60 degree weather as much as we did. We had shorts on and went to the local park, took dogs for walk, etc...
Spring is coming!

Hi Dawn, if you look at my website I have added a page for our cruise, it lists all who is cruising with a little info about each of us, give me as much or little info you want us to know, names, where you are from etc, you will see what others have put.
The 'FE' in red is who are participating in a gift exchange with fish extenders outside our cabin doors, Waiting for Maria(Maza) to post rules, I don't want to post wrong info as we played a different version before.

Where did you find business class tickets that cheap? I have never been to Europe, want to visit a few cities, but probably would not go if I had to endure an 8+ hour flight in coach.

My wife received some grief and ribbing over Valentines Day at work this year. I sent flowers - again - and the women she works with were getting jealous and threatening that I better not send flowers next year. Instead of flowers, I would love to send her an itinerary for a trip to Paris...

We have been doing upto 4 trips a year to US in coach, never a problem, we sleep almost every flight. This will be our 1st time in Biz class so hope I don't like it too much.
It was an offer on last Oct for only about 3 days, we don't know if it was an offer or a misprice but we paid and still have the seats in row 2 so I am happy. I booked thru Expedia, the seats were sold as AirFrance but its a code share on Delta planes. Can't see me ever getting that price again.
