Where was your cabin? It obviously wasn't near mine.
We are fortunate we didn't get injured in the cabin.
I was surprised the announcements didn't recommend kids sleep on floors, secure loose items, etc.

Yes, I saw this, posted my HO and will NOT be going back. I refuse to lower myself and put people in their place. It saddens me that Disers are down right rude and snarky and pretend to be All Knowing about everything and anything. I can't believe some of the comments. Prepare to get upset of you read through the pages.... And there's also one about our 25% discount. WOW, people start something out of nothing these days. Blasting us for getting a goodwill gesture and saying that we should have gotten nothing. Okay, okay. Really... We didn't ask for it, but people are acting like we put up such a fuss, that DCL was backed into a corner and had no choice. C'mon... Anything thatbDCL does at this point will NOT change some people's opinion, but it was a smart decision on their part to try to salvage some cruisers from never setting foot on a DCL,ship,again. It's going to take me a while....

Glad we're all ok, and hope everyone can put this behind them in their own time.

There's only a few people stirring the pot. It's the same 2-3 people over and over. I don't get why the moderators even allow it. I wasn't on the ship but wanted to come over here and read. My heart goes out to you all and I am really glad you are back and safe!

Hopefully you all will post more pics and videos. I can't imagine what it must have been like.

I wasn't on your cruise either, and I was getting super mad at all of the ridiculous posts questioning your experiences.

I am so very sorry you all had to go through that. We sailed in June/July and I found myself in tears reading the first hand accounts. The terror lifts off the pages and through the words.

Sending my support your way.

Perhaps we need to change the shirts to say " Survived the Fall Fantasy"

The one thing that comforted me personally was that she was made in Germany

Yes, indeed. I knew we were safe, state-of-the art ship made in Germany, doesn't get any better than that does it! [/I]

I agree also, but I did go back today and the moderator and several other supportive disers came on to put those mean posters in their places, I felt better today after reading, but last night it just deeply upset me as well.

I spent a great deal of time checking on my sleeping kiddo. Sam managed to sleep through the entire ride. At one point she was rolling back and forth with her mouth hanging wide open while she slept. I was more scared of flying objects then of the weather. I think the phones next to the bed should be secured down. I avoided looking out the window because then I would have freaked out and really been scared. I was so grateful for once I made her come to the room at 11 instead of 1 so she was not in the kids club or making her way to our room.

Well that was definitely an intense last night for the cruise!

It was pretty rough where we were on deck 12 forward. Pretty much everything but the couch moved around in our room during that 4-5 hour period.

Dining room table fell over, coffee table slid from in front of the TV all the way to the entry door, etc etc.

It didn't really bother me too much but my wife was a bit scared as it kept going on and on.

Was definitely a nice gesture from Disney to give us 25% off on future booking as they didn't really have to do that!

We did end up missing our flight out of MCO due to the delay in getting off the ship unfortunately, and had to rebook on another airline. Glad I bought trip insurance now though!

Overall really enjoyed the trip the last night withstanding!
