It's been quite a year! I took a break from blogging, because...life and everything. Now I'm back, and I have some stories to share! The big one, which was a year and a half in the making, was our Disney cruise!
There definitely was a bit of stress involved at times, which happens when you take a three year old on a big vacation, but the great experience and fun we all had was worth it! There's so much to talk about, so I will detail different experiences in other posts, but for the summary, here it goes:
We traveled on the Disney Fantasy the week of August 24th, and the trip was 7 days long. I've been on two cruises before, both on Carnival, and those were years ago. My husband had never been on a cruise, and we had our toddler daughter, so I wanted to pick a cruise that was family friendly and fun for kids, so I chose Disney!
Our cruise, which was an Eastern Caribbean itinerary, was to make stops at Tortola, BVI, and St. Thomas, USVI, as well as Disney's private island, Castaway Cay (pronounced Key.) Unfortunately, we were in hurricane season, which I completely forgot about while initially booking, and Hurricane Dorian caused us to change our route over to the Western Caribbean, so we went to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico instead, as well as Castaway.
From the moment we boarded, there was that "Disney Magic" that everyone has raved about! As each family boards the ship, cast members announce your family name. I'm unaware of any other cruise line doing that, and it was really special!
The ship was really beautiful, and Disney really pays attention to every detail! From the chandelier in the main atrium lobby, to the designs on the carpets, the decor is stunning!
