To me it's not a cruise until u step onboard and they pronounce ur name.... There are several other things that make it what they are so it takes several things but it becomes real when they announce ur name

Driving up and seeing the ship in port. It's also when DS starts to get excited too.

For me it's when the plane touches down anywhere, in the great USA. Preferably in warm weather!

We are in Niagara Falls, Canada area.

When I walk along deck 10 after depositing our carry-ons in a deck chair/at a table and everyone has grabbed their first serving of Topsiders grub. I'll walk around and then just say 'I'm Home!'
The fun really begins from there!

I'd have to say crossing over the bridge and catching my first glimpse of the ship from the Disney Magical Express.
