Our First Disney Cruise - Wonder 12/2 Finished 1/22
Welcome to our first Cruise Trip Report.
Cast of Characters: me (35) - the spinster Aunt who found my Prince Charming a couple of years ago and we have now been happily married for over a year. Thankfully my DH (40) is a Disney Fanatic too who plans awesome Disney vacations.
We have been to WDW and DL together but never a Disney Cruise. We have talked about taking a cruise but DH was thinking a Disney cruise would be overrun with kids. Yeah I know...shame on my DH for even thinking that but neither of us have kids so we have a low tolerance for screaming children. We are building up that tolerance by hanging out with my nieces . Ok before I get an influx of hate mail about our child hating views, I was just teasing...we do love children...we spoil our nieces...we would love to have our own children one day...so no flaming me cause we all know Disney is for "kids of all ages." And trust me once we have kids we will dragging our screaming children everywhere. (again I tease )
So a little back story on how our cruise came about. Bear with me because I tend to go on tangents.
As my BIL likes to point out constantly, DH and I take a lot of vacations. I get three weeks a year so we try to maximize those three weeks. This year we went to the Outerbanks with my twin sis and her family. DH and I also went to Arkansas Diamond Mine and of course Disney World. When we went to WDW in September, we had booked our last vacation for December, a four day trip to Captiva Island. We had so much fun at Captiva on our honeymoon last year that we wanted to revisit the Island.
So anywho, back to WDW in September. We had an awesome time...weather was perfect...went to two MNSSHPs...and I was spoiled rotten on my birthday. Did I mention my DH is truly awesome? My husband goes totally overboard for special occasions and I am definitely not complaining.
On my birthday we had a truly magical lunch at Cinderella's Castle where my DH surprised me with not one but two Cinderella slippers, a crystal engraved slipper, and the white chocolate slipper (delightful). So after DH rolled me back to our resort he gave me a beautiful watch. After I fawned over the watch for a while he got that look in his eyes and said he had one more small present for me.
He gave me a beautiful photo box that he decoupaged with glitter Disney stickers. So I open the box and on top was this photo picture.
Ok at that point I start crying cause I knew immediately he had changed our Captiva trip to something else.
I lift up the photo and another piece of tissue to see this photo...
So now I am really crying cause I recognize that Captain Hook is on a cruise ship. So I lift up the picture and another sheet of tissue to find a musical card that plays 'When You Wish Upon a Star' and another photo.
And at the very bottom of the box was a Cruise Guide. My DH totally surprised me. I have no idea how he managed to turn our Captiva trip into a three day cruise without me finding out. But I was over the moon and still am about the surprise. Best. Birthday. Ever.
