I'm reading your report and am now in the Cartegena section, where I caught a glimpse of your mom's purse! I love Disney Lesportsac, and that midnight Harmony tote is at the top of my hunt! Tell your mom she has nice taste in purses. (and a buyer should she want to get rid of it!)

I can't wait

We are doing the PC cruise from San Diego to PC in Sept. 2014. I am very much looking forward to more days at sea and seeing new ports and sights than we have seen on the Caribbean cruises. I LOVE that first sighting of the cruise ship when arriving

OMGosh- I love your trip report! I booked the WBPC for May 2015 and I'm excited now! Cruising through the Panama Canal looks awesome! The only bummer is hearing about the CMs complaining. We were on the Wonder this past October and we met several CM onboard who expressed to us how Disney treats them and they were miserable. It kinda put a little damper on the rest of our trip. I did write on the survey that many CMs were unhappy and that Disney should look into it. I suggested making the moral better for CMs? Maybe the CMs just needed to be reminded of the expectations? I don't know all the facts. With that said- we still had a wonderful time!

Thanks for sharing all these details. We are booked on the 2015 West Bound Panama Canal cruise and your posts gave me tons of ideas.

One was reading a text from his wavephone that said that he had to escort Cinderella and he was pissed about it. They were kissing (I didn't think I should take a photo while they were kissing - I have some class ). Anyway, my point is I don't think that cast members (whether it is Snow White and Prince Charming or Petter Pan and Belle or Snow White and Belle or Prince Charming and Prince Philip) should be kissing in public and I don't think they should be complaining about their jobs in public. This happened several times on the 9th deck pool area as well. I got an earful hearing one of the actresses/singers telling another all about her boyfriend Ivan, who is married with kids, but his wife is CRAZY and he's going to leave her etc. Not that another guest could have been just annoying to sit by at the pool, but why did working cast members have to be at the guest pool and guest sundeck anyway? If they are on vacation that is one thing, but they were working this cruise. Don't they have their own pool and their own beach? I know I'm going to get flack for this but it's my opinion that this is inappropriate. I thought cast members had to be "on" in public? I do in my job.
I also noticed that on the wonder. We were on a b2b right before the wbpc last year and I was appalled at the amount of cast members "playing" on stage while on their breaks. Very un-Disney if u ask my opinion. And it's even stranger to see on this ship because I tend to think of the wonder as having one of the best crews on dcl.
