Every year, my husband and I visit Walt Disney World, our favorite vacation destination. Last year, for our fifth wedding anniversary, we decided it was time for a change. So we booked a Caribbean cruise on the Disney Dream.
We set sail in late March 2011, just a few months after the Dream joined Disney Cruise Line’s fleet. We’ve both cruised before and enjoyed it, but cruising with Disney was even more perfect for us – we are, after all, just a couple of big kids. The trip combined all of the fun of cruising with the magical feeling that we love about the Disney theme parks.
Our days were spent exploring the different ports – in Nassau, we went on an excursion where we learned how to roll cigars, and at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, we enjoyed some quiet time under the sun on the beautiful beach. We spent evenings in the Skyline lounge, where the windows show the skylines of different cities, enjoyed dinner at Animator’s Palate where we got to “talk” to Crush, the 150-year-old turtle from Finding Nemo, and greeted characters at almost every turn!
Our cruise adventure ended up being the best way to celebrate our anniversary – we’re ready for our next one!
I’ve read a lot of stories and seen many photos from RCI members who have also been on cruises. We’ll be sharing these stories and pictures on the RCI Blog this week…be sure to come back!
