Inaugural Cruise! June 3rd 2012! BREEZE ROLL CALL
 
Cannot wait! I am there with missus & 3 kids, although they don't know about it yet. Let the countdown begin!!:D:D:D:D:D

So one Canadian poster and one (me) from the UK! Though I am hoping to immigrate to Canada in 3 years time :D

Hello all...we are booked as well!! We live in NJ but I am originally from Bournemouth in the UK.In fact i send my sister from the UK the link too!! As soon as one of our great friends showed us the link we were in!! We were on the second Med sailing of the Dream and had a brilliant time. Our CC roll call group on that trip have created many lasting friendships! In fact we are having a reunion weekend in Ohio tin July and last year were in Canada!!

So what cabins did you choose? What are you looking forward to?

Anglo-Canadian connection going on..... I'm living in Nova Scotia now but grew up in London, Torquay, Exeter....Canada is amazing, but looking forward to spending some time with Brits aboard Breeze!
We'll be in 1398. Would have liked a balcony but Oceanview is the only thing they have for family of 5.:D

Mel....I am stalking you! HEHEHE :) I hope that we will book this cruise soon.

Scratchrat May 6th, 2011 03:49 AM

Will be nice to make friends on here so long before the cruise! Means meeting up on board will be extra special!

ME and my partner, (We are a same sex couple) are both aged 25, but when the cruise rolls around, I will be 26 and my OH's 27th birthday is the day before we sail.

We are booked in room 2220, a Porthole room on Deck 2. We found that when on the Dream last year that we only really spent time in our cabin to sleep, shower and well, other things couples do, so we didn't see the need to book a balcony or anything when the Dream class has the Lanai :)

we will be booking this week.

DH & I did Carnival Dream Inaugural. We did all these ports except Athens, Izmer, Sardinia & Marseille

got lots of good info to share so ask away.

We will more than likely fly from Atlanta to venice and Barcelona to Atlanta on Delta. Will be doing a NONSTOP flight.
What ever flight you book DO NOT book Alitalia!!! They lost ALL of our luggage going over to Rome (took 5 days to get all the bags) & to top that they lost it all on the way home (took 3 days to get the bags)

looking forward to chatting with eeryone over the next year

Cheri...I remember you were on the Inaugural of the Dream....we were the group getting on the Dream when ya'll got off. I was the one that made the guestbook and left it in library on the Dream for people to sign.

We are booked in an extended aft balcony. Getting ready for the Magic on June 12, so I will report back later. I hope we can find good multi-destination airfare was we have to fly from Vegas. Looking forward to meeting all of you.:)

It is fun getting to know everyone before and we are a same sex couple also..lol..I am Mel and Melissa is my partner.

We actually took an extended aft balcony as our friends had one on the Dream and we loved it. Ours was supposed to be the aft wrap around balcony but well the ship yard put the divider in the wrong place. We would have loved the wrap balcony but the actual cabin was smaller because of the configuration. We just loved loved sailing into and out of Venice!!

Cant wait to spend the next year making new friends!!

I think we might do Iberia again..We flew with them on the last trip and has an awesome rate. We got 400 rt from NYC...couldnt believe it. We are going to fly in the day before and then spend a couple of days in Barcelona afterwards!!

I love the research..and uh Tricee...you guys have to come so we can all go get the best canolli again by the Greek Theatre !!

I stopped by the TA's office yesterday to ask her the process. The DH is supposed to find out his work shift today so we will see.

We have a side aft (L-shaped) next to the wrap on the Empress deck (7454) on the Magic...but I was actually able to get the extended on the Breeze 8472 for less money than we originally booked the Magic...so I went for it... I love all the ports with inaugural Breeze... We always book Early Saver, so if there is a price drop we might gain a bit, but since the extended aft are very limited not sure we will get much in the way of reductions.:(
