Mary which dvc cruise was the best theme

Mary,After all these DVC cruises which one would you say was the most rememberable.I know all of them would have something special or not so special.I was only on the legends cruise and I thought that was very special seeing all of the people who made Disney what it is.

I felt some disappointment when you said 2009 could be your last.What has DVC done to disappoint you with the Cruise.You could post or PM me so I would have some insight on what to do about the 2010 cruise.I also would like to o the 5 day cruise in 2010.

Billy,

My two favorites were 2005 and 2007. I thought 2005 was the best organized and had the best communication. 2007 by far has the best theme and best guests. The absolute best cruise moment...Richard Sherman's show. I have such love and respect for that man and that night brought back my childhood.

As for this year - communication has been non-existant. They have updated the web page exactly once telling us they couldn't tell us anything that it was top secret. Well I look at this a bit like I look at movie reviewers who say the studio didn't sent out any advance clip to review. Makes you wonder how good it is. Plus if you go to the web page there is a tab for the cruise theme and it is still showing 2008. If you aren't going to tell us the theme then just take it down.

As for 2009 what will keep us away is if it is another 4 day. Been there done that too many times. If they do a 7 day we will most likely leap at it. Also we'll see how they do once we are on the ship. My big fear is that with D23 days before the cruise all the big Disney things will be happening there and not on the cruise.

I hope I'm wrong but I really think DVC Marketing has been hit by cut-backs and this just isn't a priority any more.

As for the other Member Cruises:

2003 was a blast because it was the first one. Only down side - no day at sea which I love.

2006 was in my opinion the worst. Bad communication, DVC staff didn't want to interact, Jim Lewis outright lied when he said the 2007 cruise hadn't been decided on even though the dates had already been leaked on the internet. Then a month later we find out the date are there, there is a 2007 cruise but sorry all you former cruisers we're giving first timers a shot and you can have what's left over. This back fired on them as many first timers who "won" the lottery opted not to book and other first timers who were told they didn't win the lottery and could try with the rest of us were so pissed (and had already made other plans) that when they got the call they too said no.

2008 was good but not great. Liked some of the guests but didn't really like the others. The highlight for me was the last evening show where they had the 3 leading ladies of Broadway sing for us.


So there you have it. Probably more than you wanted to know.

Thank You mary for your opinion on whats happening with DVC and your report on the past DVC cruises.
I hope to hear your trip report after this upcoming trip and what's happening in the future.
Have you heard anything about 2011 dates with the new boat?
What are your dates for 2010? I want to do the 5 day and my daughters 21st birthday falls on the August 8th DD castaway cay trip.

Where is everyone? Did I scare you all away? I hope not.

Honestly you will have a blast on the cruise. After all if nothing else you are spending 2 days at Castaway Cat, will get some nice gifts, some good entertainment, and a chance to add on with some great incentives.

If it makes you feel any better the odd year cruises are the ones I've liked best. Think of it like the Star Trek movies (in that case the even ones were the best but you get the idea).

Right now, I'm on a weather delay at camp! Thunder in the area! Have to wait 30 minutes from last strike to reopen the pool.

I ran down to my DH's office to see if I could get on to say hi to all!

Hi Monika!

Yep, it just started pouring here too.

Thanks for posting the shipping info - I know I had seen it before but couldn't remember where. I want to send my FE gifts down when I'm done.
