Alaska and FIRST CRUISE EVER!
 
Hello everyone!
http://storybirdphotos.com/blog/wp-c...er-PIII-09.jpg
I went on my very first cruise ever! on June 10th 2013 to Alaska.

I posted these a while ago, but I went back to look at it and thought I might share my cruise experience on here! It was my first ever cruise after all! And I got some pretty nice photos!

On the day of embarkation, we already had reservations to Palo! Also, when we reserved our dinner, Sasha (who was helping us reserve seats) didn't think we were old enough. Ha! I've got lots of stories about mistaken for being under age. Someone even asked me why I never went to the Vibe! or Edge! (EDGE! seriously?)

I HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF PHOTOS TO SHARE!

But I think I will link you to my blog posts because I talk about my experience on there!

The blog is split up into 4 posts, but to make it easier for you, I will tell you what those posts are about.

Part I is about our first time ever on the ship! Our rooms, exploring parts of the ship, and dinner at Palo's

Part II shows Triton's (for breakfast), photos of our surroundings, the Golden Mickey's, Animator's Palate (for dinner), and our Canadian souls braving the Alaskan cold.

Part III is a fun one because we spent our entire day outside while the ship cruised through Tracy Arm Fjord, and we saw a lot of wild animals! Whales, seals, etc. Also, something funny happened at dessert time!

Part IV is more about Alaska, our ports of call, and our last night : (

Part V will be for Instant Films. I got a lot of photos in Instant Film where I asked the characters to sign them. I'll share them on here soon :cool1:

I met a lot of wonderful people (both guests and crew members) who made this experience even more magical!

Also, I have to say that I am 23 and I had tons of fun on the ship! I went with my cousins who were 20 and 24. We all had an amazing time! So for those of you who are around our age and wondering whether or not you should go on a Disney Cruise, I highly recommend it!

Thank you Donna! I'm not complaining about looking younger! It comes along with lots of funny stories! : )

I can wait to read your blog!!! My family and I will be in the same cruise next year (June 9th, 2014) to celebrate my DD 10birthday. Now I have to go to the supermarket :(

It's going to be so fun Princessmom1970! I'm excited for you! My cousins and I couldn't afford any of the excursions (except the tram which was $29 or something like that), and the only reason we could afford the cruise was because it was 25% off for Canadian residents, and we booked it 3 months before the ship sailed.

But from everyone else I talked to who did the excursions, they all loved it! Especially Zip Lining, Dog sledding, and whale watching. I'm sad that I couldn't do any of those! Hopefully I will be able to do them next time :D

We're going to Alaska next year. Can't wait. Enjoyed your report.

I have to say, your Lensbaby lens made it look like you were taking pictures of miniatures. I almost felt like I was in the Storybook ride in Disneyland. :)

Thank you so for reading my report! : ) The lensbaby is a fun lens! But i'm still trying to get used to it. Sure takes a lot of practice :)

I really enjoyed your blog. We are doing the Alaska Cruise on the Wonder next June. I want to see what you and your friends saw.

Thank you ! Enjoy your cruise! Hopefully there will be lots of whales for you to see, too! They like to swim to the ship!
