For our DCL Baltic cruise - we boarded in Dover and as soon as we could get to our room, i started laundry - after spending a week in London - I had packed all of our dirty laundry in our carryon - I saw our hostess in the hall and asked and she said to go for it - everything was done by the time the safety drill was done - no one wanted to use either washers or dryers

Subscribing! We are first time cruisers and any info is appreciated.
So anyway, my first questions are about dining. Being a podcast cruise, will they seat you with other dis'ers for dinner? Also, what is the dress for dinner? Are long pants required for men? Would nice golf shorts and a collared shirt be appropriate?
I always overpack so I will have something appropriate...but dbf brings the necessities.

On PCC 2.0, we were seated at the next table from other PCC guests. I think they try to put you with other PCC if you're a small party.

Official DCL dress code - http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/fa...dining-attire/

DH wears dockers, [and a sport jacket for formal night]. Tennis shirts or golf shirts should be fine. DH wears hawaian shirts most of the time.

I can see the transfers on PCC 4.0 might be a tad confusing so here goes. I am getting in on November 28 & i'll be at Sports by the time the 8th comes around. I am doing the DCL transfer to Port Canaveral & after I get off the ship i'm heading to Pop for one 4 parks in 1 day adventure before flying back that sunday at some point in the afternoon.

I'm guessing I have to get off the DCL bus & transfer to a DME bus to get back to Pop but i'm not completely sure. I am also guessing the DCL bus that picks me up at Sports & takes me to the airport isn't a direct trip either & i'll have to switch buses in order to head to Port Canaveral. I'm not sure either way, any advice would be appreciated. TIA!

I'm pretty sure the DCL buses from WDW resorts go to the port without stopping at the airport, and the same when you go from the port to WDW. However, I don't know if the DCL bus picks up at All Star Sports, so you will want to check into that. If you want to get to the port earlier than the DCL bus from your resort will get you there, you could take Magical Express to the airport, and then the DCL bus from there.

In regards to transfers

DCL can pick you up at the All Star Sports and take you to port the day of your cruise. You will be picked up at 12 noon and arrive at port about 1 - 1:30 p.m.

After your cruise, DCL can take you to Pop Century

If you want to do this, contact Tracey to add / adjust your DCL transfers

Transfers are 35.00 per person each way

I've heard that Dreams Unlimited may be able to get some good prices at the Swolfin for pre and post cruise dates. Will transfers be available from there?

If you look at the threads on this board - there is info about non-DCL transfers for Podcast 3.0 in June. I imagine a similar service will be offered for our cruise in December.

**That info is in the first post on the Podcast 3.0 thread (3/29/2012 update): http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2594332

I will definitely do that again.

Great idea! We'll definitely take advantage of that!

Yup.
I'm all for letting it die, and just posting comments/questions on chit-chat thread.
