First cruise - 1977 on Sitmar's TSS Fairwind I believe we went to San Juan, St. Thomas and Haiti. Totally different experience back then.

My 1st cruise ever was on April or May 1995. I was in 7th grade. We took a 4 night cruise on what I think was the Carnival Holiday.

First Disney cruise is 10 months from today. I'm sure we will be hooked.

February 2004, Disney Wonder - 3 night Bahamas. We missed CC because of high winds!

This February, we will be on our 15th Disney cruise and 20th over all.

Smile Our first cruise ever...

... was on the Disney Magic! We sailed the 14 night Eastbound Panama canal cruise in an inside stateroom and LOVED it! It was me, DH, sister-in-law and brother-in-law. 8/20/2005 - 9/3/2005

August 20 -- Depart Port of Los Angeles
Sunday -- At Sea (hurricane Hillary)
Monday -- Cabo San Lucas (at Sea instead)
Tuesday -- Manzanillo
Wednesday -- Acapulco
Thursday - Saturday -- At Sea
Sunday -- Panama Canal
Monday -- At Sea
Tuesday -- Curacao
Wednesday & Thursday -- At Sea
Friday -- Castaway Cay
Saturday September 3 -- Arrive Port Canaveral

We had to re-route 200 miles under hurricane Hillary so we couldn't stop in at Cabo San Lucas, there were white caps in the pool! But they added Manzanillo for us and it was gorgeous! On Aug. 28th, 2005 our niece Megan was born and hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana , everyone was sad that day.

This was a very special cruise with wonderful food on the menu (many of the actual menus we got to keep!), and incredible celebrities on board. We had Roy and Patricia Disney, Don "Ducky" Williams, Joey Fatone, and the President of DCL at the time... Tom McAlpin!
We also had the best servers. (One of the servers, Dobi, we actually had on another Disney cruise in 2009!)

We'll never forget that cruise. It's my favorite kind of vacation now!

Our first cruise ever (for both of us and all of our families) was November 27th - Dec 1st, 2011 on the Disney Dream for a 4-night Bahamian cruise. We actually got married on Castaway Cay. It will forever be my favorite cruise, I'm sure (not sure how ANYTHING could top that magic!).

We just got back from another Disney cruise on the Fantasy (Dec 1st - 8th), Eastern Caribbean. We celebrated our first anniversary in true Disney fashion!

Hm, wonder what we'll do to celebrate our two-year anniversary?

Hey, we're on the Fantasy in October, 2013 too! You on the 10/19 sailing?

Her screen name looks familiar. I am thinking she is on the 10/12 Western sailing, like myself.
