I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying! It was certainly a thrill to finally start feeling the ship move!

Anyway, can't wait to hear how you liked the cruise, my family and I are Gold members on the disney cruiseline now......we LOVE it! We haven't been to Alaska yet with Disney so your trip report will be fun! Take care of yourselves and your kitty cat too!

So glad that you read and enjoyed the DLR report! I totally know what you mean about feeling like you "know" the people you read about on the DIS. Being Gold members must mean you have plenty of awesome DCL adventures under your belt! I highly recommend getting up to Alaska if possible. It was truly amazing. Hope you have fun reliving our first cruise with us via the blog

Glad you had good luck with your tablemates! We were spoiled our first cruise with two really great couples, one from California and one from Denmark, who were all avid Disney fans. Our last cruise, not so much.

I do wish that couples were always seated at four tops as sitting across from your significant other makes conversation extremely difficult with awkward tablemates.

Loving your new report. Sure wish I'd known you were visiting our beautiful city. If ever you're coming back, let me know. I'll take you on a personal tour to all the hot tourist spots, including a walk down Storybrooke's main street.

We were really glad to have luck with our table mates as well. I feel like since it was our first cruise, having unpleasant people would have put a bad taste in our mouth. Sorry to hear you've had mixed luck in the past. I'm sure that's probably always how it has the potential to go...

Well I'm sure that would have made our Vancouver experience much more exciting! Next time!

Another great update! Your writing style really makes me feel as if I were there. Love the totem pole and the shirts.

Thanks for taking us all along on your trip to Alaska!

Hi there, long time lurker of your TR's here. I have loved all of them so far!!

So excited to read more of your cruise experience! We will be on The Wonder in Oct and although the itinerary is different, I love reading about that ship!


Also, off topic, I hope all is well with you and your lovely wife. Obviously, you guys have had a rough start to 2014, I hope it rounds out much better!

I'm glad that I can make it feel like you got to come along on the trip! That's certainly what I'm going for

We LOVED all the merchandise available on this cruise. As you'll soon see, we weren't even close to being done shopping in the end!

Thanks for coming out of lurkdom to say hi! I'm so glad to hear that you've enjoyed reading about our many escapades.

We LOVED the Wonder, and I'm sure you'll have such a great time cruising in October! I'll admit, I'm a little jealous

Things have definitely been looking up in the second portion of 2014. I'll do a "real-life" update sometime soon to let you know all that we've been up to!

I'm sure the cruise directors (and especially Jimmy) rarely mix up their spiel, so I'm glad to bring back some memories with "a very pleasant good morning."

I'm totally with you on Alaska. I'd LOVE to go on another cruise already. Such an awesome place, and we had such a wonderful time.

It's certainly going to be subjective what types of merchandise you'll want in particular, but I would definitely be prepared to get some sort of clothing articles (the sweatshirts and track jackets were extremely popular on our cruise) as well as some of the memorabilia like the totem souvenir and nesting dolls. The Alaska Cruise 2014 logo is on pretty much all the standard merchandise as well (mugs, magnets, pins, etc.), so I'm sure you'll end up wanting some of those things as well... Hope that helps!

I was telling my DD about the name of your Trip Report and she said she could totally hear it in her head too. We are definitely looking forward to hearing it again next week.

I'm really enjoying your trip report
