Hi, Everyone. I hope that everyone arrived at the their destination safe and sound. This was a great cruise. I enjoyed meeting the folks that I did meet. Wish I could have met you all. And what about those awesome FE gifts?!!!! They were great. The message board and the drape clips really came in handy. It was so much fun to return to the room to find all of the little surprises.

I was really delighted that the girls wanted to help pass out our gifts. They thought it was a blast.

Anyway, we finally made it home at about 6:30 last night and we are all exhausted, mainly from our sprint around WDW before the cruise.

Well, I am off to unpack now. Cant' wait to see you all again someday.

It was so nice meeting you guys.

Thanks so much for all the awesome FE gifts. We enjoyed them all!

A special thanks to everyone who was so nice to us at the DVC member event.

Hi all. We are on our way home stuck in rush hour traffic just outside Washington DC. Ugh! To change the subject... What a great cruise. Thanks for the FE gifts. You are all very creative. We got to meet some of you at the pre sailaway. Others we saw with the matching lanyards. So Ken... When's the next cruise!

What a great cruise! We had a wonderful time. We sure lucked out on the weather didn't we?
Sorry I missed the meet. For some reason, I thought it was at 3:00.
Thanks for all the wonderful fish extender gifts! We were blown away by it all!
We booked a placeholder cruise and will decide on a date to go in 2011 as soon as the dates are announced.

Unfortunately I'm home.

Had a great time. Thanks for all the FE gifts. Loved seeing everyone's doors and delivering to the staterooms.

Can't wait for my next cruise.

Hope to cruise with everyone again.....and soon!

Okay... being back to work isn't fun at all!!!

Now that I'm back to a real keyboard, I wanted to Thank everyone again for the great gifts. And, Ken, the lanyards are ALWAYS a big hit. Thanks for your efforts.

We didn't book another cruise, but realize maybe we should have put in a placeholder cruise with the hopes of a sailing on the new ship...

My tooth survived the root canal, and my trouble with eating disappeared as soon as I got home I guess I just wasn't supposed to eat much on the cruise. Thanks to everyone who helped me out!

Good Morning Folks!

Georgie - sorry to hear that you were having tooth problems on the cruise!

I tried to rebook our Baltic cruise, but was told I might lose my room if I did, as they had to cancel the booking and rebook, and we opted not to give up our secret porthole room. We would not have saved enough to bump us up to another category.

Linda - glad that you made it home safely!

Have a great day all!

We are home too

We got home late last night. Our first Disney cruise was great!! The boys loved delivering the FE gifts (my husband found it too much pressure, when he had to sneak around to deliver to a few state rooms). We all loved coming back to the room to check the FE's. THANK YOU TO ALL. At first we were unsure about the magnets on the door thing, but we ended up saying, "what the heck" and loaded up our door with fun magnets we had printed prior to the cruise. I can't rave enough about the ship, the service, the shows, etc. A great time was had by all! Now to book another one.

Oh, What did you sing? I am trying to remember. I thought most of the people singing did a very good job. Including your husband.
