All the more reason to go back and finish the list!
That last day DOES suck!! No other way to put it! But yes, everyone was right, you do get hooked. I never thought we would fall in love with something even more than WDW but we did! It brought our family closer and made such special memories. What more can you ask for?!

I see you are hooked and ready for a 7 night cruise! I also see that you are debating between March and June, is that due to school? We also cruise only during school breaks/summer but we found that the end of May is a lot cheaper than June. Of course school lets out down here the last week of May so that's helpful. We did a 5 night on the Dream during June of last year and I think we got a pretty good deal. Then of course DH and I sailed at the end of May and at the time I booked, it was a few hundred dollars cheaper than in June. We have a 7 night booked on the Fantasy for May 24, 2014 and we saved over $1200 versus booking in June. So if at all possible, I would avoid the month of June but I know that's difficult with school. If you have to cruise during June, then I would definitely book on opening day to ensure the best price.

Great trip review! We cruised DCL for our 5th Anniversary; before DD3. We really can't wait to cruise again with her. Thanks for giving a cruising with kids perspective!

Thanks! My advice would be to stay on the ship in Nassau. Otherwise there will be so little time to enjoy what the ship has to offer! And board as soon as possible that first day. I know you will have a blast!!!!

We had already planned to pretty much stay on the ship. I think we may get off for like an hour and then head back. My DS10 want to be able to say they "went" to another country and I think he thinks it won't count if he doesn't step foot in Nassau. We arrive at MCO at 10:45, but we're taking ground transport. I'm hoping that won't take too long!

That's why we got off!! :0) you can get a picture in front of the Bahamas sign and walk the market and then get back on! It seemed most got off in the mo rning so maybe hit the aquaduck then!

Tracy, I just finally got to finish your trip report! I've been transitioning computers so I haven't even been on our FB page much either. You have just totally sold me on doing a cruise! It looks like it was a fantastic trip!

Thank you! And yes, it is truly a feat to get everyone to smile! I was lucky to get as many where they all did... usually someone is not looking or grouchy, lol!
