PLEASE! Whistle while you work …… Update Day 6 - 06/16


Hello and welcome to the trip report of our 10th DCL cruise!

The trip:
This vacation consisted of
one night at Bay Lake Tower with an evening visit to the MK
a four night Bahamian cruise on the Disney Dream and
another two night stay at Bay Lake Tower, complete with Wishes Fireworks cruise

The cast:
First of there are Tom and I.



Tom works for the Austrian Postal Services as a mailman and loves everything Disney. In 2009 we discovered our love for cruising, well cruising with Disney, that is.
Me, Karin, I am a teacher in a small village about 20 miles out of the city where we live. Like Tom I just love everything and anything Disney and have fallen for DCL as well.
We both live in Austria and travel to the US twice a year. For a week in February and for four to six weeks in August/September.
Then there are some friends, we have met here on the DISboards. Dania, Jimmy and Alex,



this year’s cruise buddies.
Michelle and her family,



who we had cruised with last year.
Ann and her family,



who I had wanted to meet for a long time and it finally worked out.
And finally our all time favourite Dream CMs, Ana,



who had been our server the last two years and her husband Matija,



who she had introduced us too and he had been our server at Royal Palace last year as well. They both are from Croatia and we have now come to be really good friends.

We had an awesome trip ….
Here are some teaser pics!
Day 1





Day 2





Day 3





Day 4

Day 6

Wanna find out what happened and how the title came to be? Then get on board!

Just in time for my school's spring break. Yea! Looking forward to a reading about your trip. It will be a nice diversion since I will be spending spring break stripping and staining woodwork in our main floor bathroom. After which I will have to paint the walls. Yuk. This is a project I have put off for about a decade so anything that can brighten my mood while working is most welcome. And reading about your adventures are a wonderful way to brighten one's day.
