May 9, 2012 Magic – Babies, Birthdays, and Bahamas

Since my vacation is over and I so enjoyed reading other people’s trip reports I thought I would try my hand at one.

My family just got back from our first Disney cruise a few weeks ago. Only my husband had ever cruised before – he took a Princess cruise to Alaska with his family while in college.

I did a lot of planning before via the internet and especially Disboards. Overall we had a great time, enough so that we rebooked while on board. I will warn you that cruising with a baby is not quite the action packed expierence you might expect and that this TR will be somewhat lacking in excursions and photos. With two little kids I have my hands full and don’t take nearly enough pictures.

A quick introduction to our cast of characters:

Me – Austin, 33, stay at home mom, former kindergarten teacher, lover of Disney

DH – Kevin, 33, salesman, great father, happy to let me plan our trips

DS – Finn, 3 ½, loves Disney, still talking about the ice cream and water slides

DD – Rowen, 6 months, got to go on her first cruise 32 ½ years before I got to go on mine





And now let's begin...
