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!

Update 8/1

Our first morning on the ship consisted of a little wandering and a whole lot of eating. Read all about it in the post here.

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

I'm glad to hear your daughter was able to picture Jimmy's announcement in her mind. And I'm endlessly jealous that you guys will be on board the Wonder next week! Hope you enjoy adding the blanket to your collection

Indeed it is. It's currently draped on our couch, and I love looking at it several times every day.

Don't you both look nice! Sometimes it's fun to dress up for a special occasion. And you both look relaxed, so the Disney magic was obviously working on you two.

Thank you for the videos. The cabin is much bigger than I would have thought, and the scenery was perfectly peaceful. It just makes me want to go to Alaska that much more.

It WAS fun to dress up for this occasion, and we were certainly experiencing the epitome of relaxation on the cruise by this point!

I'm glad you enjoyed the videos! I took several throughout the cruise, but they're all so short, so I didn't know if they'd be worth sharing. Still, I decided to upload them on a whim, and I think it was a good choice.
