I have Aunts and cousins in St.Maarten as well...but could not refuse going to St. Croix this time around since I have been trying to go to St. Croix for years now. I have never been to St. Maarten even though I have plenty of family out there....I just wish St. Maarten was added to this list too. It is really expensive though...Still, I would have loved that....I hope Disney decides to add St. Lucia to that list too..I was born there, and have plenty of family members out there too. I have been hoping to go there for some time also...but for some reason Disney always wins...Well, if Disney decides to add all of those islands,I will just love it.

I've been to St. Croix and did not find it particularly interesting. My real desire was to go to St. Maarten, but those cruises were much more expensive. It won't matter to the kids anyway, so the fun will be all theirs.

Just looking for some nice quiet time with my bride while the 3 kids play on their own.
Well, for those of us who don't have kids, perhaps we would like to know more about the island because WE want to have fun. Put me and my DH in that category.

Anyway, I planned on going on this particular cruise, so Noo Prablam Maan!!!!

My family and I would love to hear about St. Croix. We have only been on the Disney 4 day cruise (2004) and we can't wait!

If you go under the website for Disney, you will find the shore excursions for St. Croix now.

Hi all! We just booked this cruise following a b2b on the Wonder. It will be a family trip thanks to my parents. Coming are me (Christina, 35 then), DD Kate 5, DS Lucas 2, Dparents (better not give dates if I want them to continue to us on their trips ) DSis 33, Dbil 34, Dnephew 3 and TBA (to arrive in March)
This will be our first trip to St. Croix, but not our first cruise. We have been very luck that my parents love spending time with thier grandkids. I love to cruise and have been on many DCL cruises, but we are definately not experts. We spend a lot of relaxing and enjoying each others company, we just do not have the time at home.

You can add my family to the list too.

We just got off the 9/27 double dip and booked this one while on board. It will be our 4th 7day cruise. My girls had a blast and wanted to be in the kids club more than with us.

It will be me, DH, DD -5, DD-5... at the time of the cruise and a new baby arriving in 2/09.

HI!

We just got off the Double Dip on Oct 4 and booked this cruise while on board. We where going to use it as a "park" date for the Med cruises, but we decided to keep it instead! We are looking forward to seeing the ship all decked out in its Santa Gear!

Wow!

With all this 'double-dipping', I'm beginning to think we're rather under experienced with the upcoming cruise.

Anyway, it's still going to be a blast. :D

We're looking forward to it! Maybe this time we can actually get together and sit down and talk and get to know each other! These cruises are just SO far away, and I am just TOO anxious!

I absolutely know that feeling! The wait is killer and then the cruise flies by so fast

Aloha,
We are on this cruise also.

late seating
Also on the Baltic Cruise 07/18/10. This cruise is paid off because we did half points/half cash. That's the only drawback.


aloha,

The Double Dip went by incredible fast, it was over before I even had a chance to realize what just happened!

The cruise withdrawals have set in and all I can think about is my next cruise, that's why we had to do this Christmas cruise, waiting 2 years would just be plain miserable!
