My brother and his wife. (well - she will be by then - they get married in Sept)

I am beyond excited - this is our first ever cruise and I'm sorta a rabid planner so I'm excited to learn all about Disney cruising!


Hi Barbara,


Thank you for joining our small but elite group.

Wow this must be very exciting - your first cruise

I think the passporter is the best guide book there is - I still read mine and this will be my er 6th cruise (I think)

However I have not done the Eastern before.

Please feel free to ask any questions - I will gladly help you if I can.

Marci - thankyou I was thrilled when you called me an experienced cruiser.

Finally got to watch the DVD today! My son and I are thinking about doing the parasailing in Castaway Cay! He frequently chickens out on things so we'll see. Knowing that we can go together may make him brave!

When they say "some sleep 4..." does that mean that only some of the staterooms have those bunk beds? While I'm keeping one kiddo with me and the other is staying in a connecting room with my folks, they'd both love to sleep in the bunk.

Hi Barbara,

Yes you are correct - only some of the staterooms will sleep 4 and consequently have the bunks.

Did you book with DCL ?If so you can email DCL you should be able to ask if your staterooms have the bunks. (If you know your numbers and are not GTY)If you booked through a travel agent you will have to ask them to find out for you.

If you do have the bunks let your stateroom host Know that you would like the bunks made instead of the couch bed and they will gladly do it for you.

Castaway Cay is my favourite part of the cruise. I must say I missed it when I did the Disney med cruise last summer.

Once again Welcome

Helen x

My folks booked through AAA - I'll ask them to find out. We have our room numbers; I'll poke around and see if I can find anyone that stayed there!

I got a new cruise count down thingy in my signature! Woohoo!

My spring break is over tonight - and it's back to teaching tomorrow.

What's GTY?

thanks!
Barbara

Hi Barbara,

You could check here
http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/cruis...staterooms.htm
If you go to stateroom reports see if your room numbers are there.

GYT- Sometimes people dont select a specific room but rather they book a category gty ( eg cat 10 GYT) which means guarenteed. Around 30 days before sailing they get their room allocated. It is guarenteed to be cat 10 but sometimes are upgraded to a higher category. - hope that makes sense

Sorry not sure why your cruise thingy isn't working - although I noticed your photo - perhaps your signature is too big with your photo and cruise countdown?

Take care

Hi all,

I've been checking the price of our cruise and since I've booked it my category for 2 adults has gone up nearly $300 (not including any flights, insurance or tranfers)

I was lucky enough to get one of the SPR (Secret porthole Rooms, rooms that were origionally classified as cat 8 but then changed to cat 10 because of slight obstruction to the porthole) and I am chuffed to say that now a cat 8 room is just under $1000 more than I've paid -

I feel like I've got a bargin -I never realised how much the prices go up. It will certainly be worth the wait

Isn't that a good feeling to know you got the best deal by booking early?

Sorry about the snow yesterday. We've had a few days of 70s, though Easter was a little chilly with windchills in the high 40s or so. It should be nice some more this week, so I'll try to send some your way. Do you remember which restaurant the latest first seating starts in? I can't remember... I think we may stick with early dining again but want the latest early dining.

IndyRosa -- did you book yet?

Hi Barbara! Are you having fun planning yet?
