The McSparklesons Sail the Magic... AGAIN! $500 Potato Chips! 3/13

As sad as I am to write this trip report, because the cruise is over, I'm thrilled to relive it with y'all!

I have so many titles in my head but decided to stick with something McSparkly.....

What would you have said to "The Spanx They Are a Screamin?" Cause believe me, after gaining 6 lbs on this cruise, they tried to hid in the back of the drawer. Just too much pressure for those guys this trip......

Or how about trying to keep up with nenner1 and anewmac and make comparisons between cruises? Something like "Disney Magic vs Disney Magic?" Catchy huh? Well, since I've only ever been on.... wait for it.... Disney Magic, I guess it wouldn't have been much of a comparison.....

Or would it?

There was actually a HUGE difference between the two cruises, so maybe I WILL compare the two for you, just so you can see that no two cruises are the same!

And I will definitely include lots of food porn so you can see how the poor Spanx were hurtin.

But first, ever think you look like this when you get on the ship?

Only to realize when you got off a week later, that you really looked like this?

Again, it's a Spanx issue......

But more on that later.

First, let's get this party started!!!!!!!

I like comparing pics so here is a pic of the McSparklesons on formal night last year....

And here we are this year, much wiser (and in Ally's case TALLER!), cause we never get older!!!!

This cruise was 11 months of waiting, as I booked it in early May of last year. I actually booked a cruise onboard for the DISmoms (that we will be taking in less than a month! ) and Ellen (podsnel) had booked a dummy cruise for her family while on her last cruise, but she would not be needing her, so she transferred hers to the DISmoms cruise and I transferred the DISmoms cruise to my family cruise.

Clear as mud?

Now all we had to do was wait.

11 months.

It was a very long wait.... but it was SOOOOOO worth it!

There were parts of this cruise that were better than the first, and parts that fell a little shy.

Stay tuned for TONS of pics, food porn, reviews, and lots of port adventures!!!
