  1. Thanks Shmoo - I has no idea. I am reasonably sure I wont be on the VIP invite list, so if the rooms are going to be limited Ill contact a TA and see. If it doesn't work out then I'll just book its first cruise out of Port C. Thanks again!
  2. I searched and couldn’t find this subject so apologies if it’s been covered already. On our bucket list is to take the inauguration cruise on the newest Disney ship in 2021. It would our 7th Disney cruise. However I’m worried it’s going to sell out in a heartbeat. I’d appreciate your suggestions on the best way to have a good shot a booking a cabin for the cruise . I know nothing has been announced yet (not even the name) but your ideas would be welcome. Thanks!
  3. We have been on six Disney cruises (out of 26 total cruises). The last five Disney ones were on the Wonder, and the wife and I, being Disney fans, love it. So when I suggested we take a quick three day trip in February on the Wonder to get out of town, the wife said no. Her complaint, and I can’t fault her, is that they have the same old menus as they have had for years. We know them by heart, and to be honest they aren’t that great. Yes I know we could eat at Palos or Remy, but we really like going to the themed dining rooms and being with the same waiters each night. So come on Disney, change the menu lineup up after a decade so I can get back on board.
  4. Just got off the Epic and guys (lots!) were wearing short and ball caps in the Manhattan room. Now most gents had pants on but there were quite a few who did not. Maybe because it was Spring Break? Changed a lot since the last time I sailed here - but we still had a lot of fun.
  5. Got off the Dream yesterday. Yes it stopped at CC, and all is well and beautiful there with no apparent damage or change in services. It was a wonderful day!
  6. Just a quick update on our Dream cruise 9/15. It was great!Staff were well rested, and very happy to have passengers back on board. The ship was immaculate since crew had 7 offdays to clean. We were on the ship and IN our cabins by 11am, which has to be a record. Didn’t get off the ship at Nassau but no adverse reports from those who did. Castaway Cay was beautiful with warm waters and no damage from the storm. It was fun to see the Fantasy in portwhen we boarded. Same old menus and shows (Disney please change these at least once a decade) but waiters were wonderful. All in all a great getaway!!
  7. My DW and I are taking off on the Disney Dream this Friday9/15. I will be interested to see how many people are on board. We live near Orlandoand have a full tank of gas so we will be fine, but what about folks who haveto fly in or drive from some distance? I’massuming the Dream won’t have any problem with restocking supplies and fuel (I’llbe annoyed if they run out of prosecco!) Hope Castaway Cay will be up andrunning but it’s no big deal to us – a three day non stop cruise would be findto get over the Hurricane Irma jitters. I’ll post a quick update on the cruisewhen I get back
  8. Thank you very much! Going to try the Lawn Club grill
  9. Heading out next week for our annual Thanksgiving cruise, this time on the Silhouette. There are ten of us. We'd like to book a big table for the Lawn grill for one night. What is the best way for one of us to book the table for ten when we get on board, but not be charged for all ten folks? Thanks!
  10. Just got off the Dream on Halloween day after a very nice three day “spooky” cruise. Heavy proportion of kids on board but apart from passing a lot of gas in the hallways, and one emergency evacuation of the kiddie’s pool for you can guess what, they were fine. Actually had more adults sitting on the stairs blocking lanes than children this trip. This was our fourth Dream cruise so we have it down to an art by now. On board by 11.45, drinks at the Passport bar and lunch on deck 2 EP. As always, in my opinion, staff were wonderful. We were in cabin 6168 which was very clean and steward was cool. I took DW, DS, and DD and we had another couple join us. They had booked guarantee and got # 7190 handicapped with a huge balcony. Much rose wine was consumed there. DD is big into Halloween and that’s why we went (were at Mickeys Not so Scary Party Thursday night). There were a number of Halloween activities but not as many as I had expected. However it was still a blast. Characters were in costume so I have a whole new set of pictures to frame now. Food was really good on this cruise and although I don’t think the menu has changed in a few years now, it was better than remembered. Weather a bit iffy but we didn’t get wet and it was breezy on Disney Cay which was good as we spent the afternoon at the Serenity Bay bar. All in all a very nice “Not so Scary” trip (scariest part was getting the bar bill at the end of the trip….)
  11. My family are heading out on the Dream 10/28 for the Halloween cruise. In order to make my daughter happy about dressing up for the Nightmare BC film Friday night, I ordered myself the Jack Skellington T-shirt size L from the Disney store. So last week the package arrived from Disney, and inside was a long sleeve sweat shirt with Mickey wearing a Christmas hat and was size XLLL! My wife of course howled with laughter. Anyway Disney has promised to send me a replacement and asked that I donate the wrong item to charity which I will do. Whatever can go wrong will.... At least I ordered it early
  12. Sunset bar is great as you can fire up a cigar and relax! Try doing that at the Martini bar!
  13. We are heading out this Thanksgiving on the Silhouette, and seeing recent bar menus leads me to believe that the only change to the bars since the last time I was on the Silhouette (11/14) is the new World Bar replacing the Molecular Bar? No Gastro Pub? And Michaels Club is now only open to certain levels of passengers? We travel as humble Concierge passengers Was hoping for a change as I love the Martini bar but after 7 its so jammed its hard to get a drink - even when I tip cash with each order Thanks

  15. Hey one last question ( actually two..) On the three day Halloween cruise what night is the interactive "Nightmare" movie in the theater? And is there still Pirate night? I'm on the Oct 28th three day Dream cruise. Thanks!
