Disney Cruise 2015

Yes, we first went to Ft. Lauderdale to visit my Dad and then we went to Port Canaveral and took the kids on a Disney Cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, as opposed to the Western Caribbean where we took them two years ago. This cruise had stops at St. Thomas, USVI; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Disney's Castaway Cay.

We were on the same ship as last time, the Disney Fantasy. Boarding was quick and efficient and the kids loved it when on boarding every family was announced by family name and welcomed on board with clapping from the crew.

We had lunch at the Enchanted garden restaurant after we boarded and then the kids raced off to join the Midship Detective Agency and play an interactive game where you solve mysteries by going around the ship and discover clues in talking animated paintings.

After that, the rooms were opened up and we checked out our stateroom and then headed up onto the main deck to watch the ship cast off.

The pilot boat was real close to the ship the whole time.

We then attended the mandatory lifeboat drill.

After that we changed and went to see the opening show and have dinner. A towel animal (quickly named Bun-Bun) was awaiting us when we got back to our stateroom to sleep.

Your cruises are A LOT more fun than mine... sigh

I have to bring my own towel.

Yes, sound like a great cruise, but on my first cruise ship, airplanes landed and took off on the roof.

And yet me and five thousand of my fellow passengers had a great time in the Med in 1974.

No towel animals though!

That looks like a fun vacation. And a great time of the year to go too!
