Off the Wonder today

Loved it! Our first Disney family cruise. We are delayed in Tampa, so feel free to ask any questions. We were on deck 8 and found the location to be very convenient.

Highlights:
Our server Banjo
Quiet adult pool area (miss it already)
Palo dinner -- it was amazing
The Edge -- our 2 daughters really enjoyed themselves there
Castaway Cay -- awesome weather for January
Toy Story the Musical -- great show
Our first FE exchange

Was this a 4 night Keys/Nassau/CC? If so, do you happen to have the navigators to scan when you get home? I've been asking for them since the first sailing to no avail
If this was it, do you recall them having mixology?

Yuppers -- that was our course. Key West was great.

I did bring home a few of our Navigators. I will try to scan tonight.

The CVS is like 3 block from the pier....go to the end of the terminal area and turn left. You can restock anything you've used up or forgotten. You know, like when your teen forgets hair products and other necessities of life. No, teens can't use DCL shampoo and they must have heat protector so they ca straighten the hair.

Yes! PLEASE, PLEASE post any Navigators that you have. It would be much appreciated! Also- is there a special check in at the Port of Miami for Castaway Club Members? Did you notice? What time did you board? What were some of the highlights of your trip? We are taking the same cruise in May. Can't wait!! THANKS!
