It's amazing how mean people can get. It was scary and I think the captain should not have taken us there. But he knew we were safe just didn't realize how bad it would be. We didn't expect any discounts but sure did appreciate it.

This was our eleventh Disney cruise and the first really rough one. Some people did sleep through it. I wish I would have!!!

We still had a great cruise, didn't meet as many of you as I would have liked.

Hope we all cruise again together!!!

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.
I know that we did not complain, but appreciate the 25% discount.

I dare anybody out there that is talking trash, to have been on that cruise. It was crazy. I met people afterwards that had sailed 8 times with DCL and said that they would NEVER sail again after that experience. I am glad that the Captain and Crew safely returned us to Port Canaveral. It was a trip to write home about. We will definitely sail again. Thanks everybody for the memories!!!!

This pretty well sums it up for us. It was only our fourth cruise but we've never experienced anything like Sandy before. We didn't expect any kind of compensation but appreciate and will use it nonetheless.

We were fortunate that neither of us had any motion sickness issues during the storm ... we were actually kind of fascinated by it, especially during the day. Having said that, when we started pitching late Friday night and early Saturday morning I did have some EEEK moments and started to get scared. My husband and I both were able to get some sleep, however, during the "calmer" moments ... I think being midship probably helped.

I am reading some things that have me puzzled though ... reports of Cabanas not offering a full breakfast and people not being able to find anything to drink ... anyone else have this happen?

We were up at Cove Cafe around 7AM and full coffee service was available ... we both had our usual lattes. I also saw plenty of adults wandering around with red cups from Cabanas / drink station with lids on them and can only assume it was coffee. We also went to Cabanas for some food and there was indeed a full buffet ... fruit, pastries, eggs, waffles, bacon ... and this was about 7:15AM. Maybe the person whose account I read got there late ...

The crew was also handing out free bottled water in the atrium while people were waiting for the ship to be cleared by customs.

I do think Saturday morning's disembarkation cattle call could have been handled much better, but it was pretty obvious when we finally left our stateroom that the crew had lost control of the situation in the atrium.

Hugs to those of you who obviously had a much worse experience than we did ... very sorry that your time with DCL was anything less than wonderful.

Enjoyed meeting some of you last week - hope our paths cross again some day. Congrats to Eva & Von ... and thanks for sharing that video! BTW, Von, Jason said you are his kind of beer people!

We saw full breakfast in cabanas too. I even read lunch was offered.:confused We got off around 1:30, so I guess that makes sense.

Some of the drink stations were acting up Sat. am, including port side pool deck. The ice was the problem for me. Starboard side pool had a glacier forming from all the ice under dispenser. After failing to find a machine that dispensed ice. I returned to the glacier for a scoop. I found soda functioning at starboard side glacier unit too.

Schools, and US Govt. offices closed today in at least a 50 mile radius around D.C. They are calling Sandy a "super storm" The shelves in the grocery were 1/2 empty last night. No water on shelves. No gas a station.

Oh my. Round two here we go.

Oh man, it really sucks that you guys (people who live in the northeast) had to deal with Sandy on the Fantasy, and now again when you get home, maybe more so now. Stay safe everyone.

We ate lunch before we got off the boat. I don't think Cabanas was serving lunch but the area with Luigi's pizza, wraps, burgers, fruit, etc. was open for lunch. The ice wasn't working for us either, but no problems getting a drink.

So did I read tweaked/new shirts are already planned?

My thoughts. Perhaps if they still have the template/ I like the front we have/ Just add something on back/ "Fantasy and Nightmare" , "Rocking and Rolling on the Fall Fantasy" , "Survived Sandy on the Fall Fantasy", etc.
