Sept 17, 2009 - Wonder

I can't believe *I* am starting the meet thread for this cruise!

This will be our very first parents-only cruise and we're pretty excited.

Who else is cruising w/ us? Or will we have the whole ship to ourselves?

Hi-

We too are sailing, it will just be the adults. My first cruise and I wanted to make sure I liked it before adding the kids into the mix. It will also be our 10 year anniversary "gift" to each other.

Fish Extenders

Has anyone tried to do this yet? I was thinking this length of cruise would be great to get my feet wet and see if I can do it in the future with the kids. I believe my husband will think I am crazy if I make him travel the ship to deliver items, when we get so little time without the kids as it is... oh well!

Nette-

Congratulations on your 10 years, ours is truly in June but to get someone to watch the kids we choose Sept, it is easier when they are in school during the day.

Let me try again...

Well, after going to look at previous threads it seems like they give a little more information on themselves, so let me start.

Me - DW 36 and DH 35
Location: Green Bay, WI
1st cruise for me, second for DH - but first time in a larger ship.
Reason: 10 Year anniversary celebration (truly the date is June 12)
Staying a POP before the trip, hoping to get FD bounceback for a trip in 2010
Renting a car and driving to the port.
Room: Cat 7 - secret verahanda (sp) room

Hopefully we will get a few more people joining us...then again, I am all for an empty ship...More for us.

It's just the two of us. DM (dis mom) 50 and DD who turns 18 on cruise. We're from AZ. We're in a cat 12 (but hoping to upgrade). First cruise for both of us but many trips to WDW.

We're all for Fish Extenders if we can get it organized.

Yep, ours is the week after yours June 19.

We are Nette/dday2021
Austin tx
This is our 5th cruise on DCL
Cat 11 (for now)
First parents only vacation!! (We had a trip once w/o kiddo, but it was for a tournament, so not really vacation)
Staying DVC somewhere the night before the cruise. Will probably use DCL transportation to the port. (Hoping for a night at AKV...)

I still need to make sure my mom will sit while we're gone. I'm sure it will be fine, but I'm chicken to tell her we're gonna spend money during this economy...

Hi everyone

Hi Everyone - We are also joining you - and we are so excited!!!

This is our second Disney cruise. It's also our bounceback. And because we loved our 7-night cruise on Jan. 31, we decided to add a 4-night cruise at the end of this cruise.

I was wondering if anyone here has done the fish extenders before. I was also curious if it would seem a little rushed on a shorter cruise. But I really do love the idea of trying it. We booked our last cruise just six weeks prior to boarding, and I was concerned about being too late to add our names to the list. But I'll be honest, I really wish we had done it on the last cruise. It just sounded like a ton of fun.

A little about us -
It'll be me, the hubby and our daughter, who will be 4 (going on 24) at time of cruise. We're from Northeast Florida, and quickly became addicted to Disney cruises (We've also done Holland America before, and loved that too - but Disney was definitely more child-friendly and perfect for our family). The weather was pretty chilly on our Jan. 31 cruise (which was somewhat of a fluke) so we're really hoping for nice weather this time around.

Can't wait to learn about all of you, and see who else will be joining us. (Our tablemates from our first Disney cruise have already booked, which is why we chose this date for our 3-night. Our daughters became really close on the first cruise, so we thought it would be nice to get together again.)
