the firstmickeys MAGICAL Western Cruise Aug 12-19: First Time Cruisers

Cast of Characters:
firstmickey: Donna just turned ***gasp*** 40
(the just turned part is important ya know!)
DH: Dan 43 (about to be 44)
DD: Kaitlin 12
DS: Kevin 9


About us: we have been to Disney multiple times over the past couple of years and I have been saying that I wanted the Disney cruise for my 40th birthday. Finally in February, we decide to book for my birthday in August. We chose the week after, however, because I really wanted to do the Western Itinerary. It just appealed to me more. (and Im not sorry!) I work as an RN and can luckily pick up extra shifts for extra money so that is what I did....a lot....and a lot...and a lot....and in my spare time I run two kids around to activities, friends, etc. LOL! DH works long hours also (director of technical computer consults type guy).
And we are all ready for a much needed vacation and break! We deserve it!

Plus turning 40 was a little stressful for me (I Know...I know...it's just a number!) and I figured how sad can you be on a boat with Mickey in the Caribbean, right? RIGHT!


We had three wonderful days at Disney in the Swan before this trip and made it before all the airline issues so that was all good. (but that's another trip report!)


Ok....so lets begin......


I wake up early at the Swan on Saturday Aug 12 and I have to confess that my excitement is like Christmas morning. It doesnt seem real that we are cruising today! Im slightly sad at leaving Disney today though...I truly love it here and we had a good time with other DIS friends the Loubons...plus we didnt get to spend as much time in EPCOT...but that's what future trips are for, right? I finally cant stand it anymore so after my shower I wake everyone up jumping up and down yelling: CRUISING TODAY WITH MICKEY! (sorry to the people next door...but we are cruising ya know)

Everyone gets up....we pack up the last minute things making sure that we have our very important day bag with swimsuits, clothes for dinner that night in case we don't get our luggage in time (complete with shoes)....THANK YOU DISSERS for all that wonderful info!

We head off to breakfast on the Boardwalk at Spoodles where I spill apple juice all over my DD in the restaurant! (Preteen girls are NOT happy at all when you do something like that....I'm just sayin' )
Dan takes her back to change while I show Kevin the scary clown pool at the Boardwalk. (He really wanted to see it...lol....MOM...that pool is NOT scary he says...well, it is to me and Im not stayin' there!)

Back at the Swan, we head for our FL TOURS towncar waiting for us out front. (just a moment here to say what a great company they are! I use them every time I go now. I quite frankly dont have patiece for magical express buses or Mears shuttles.....I like someone picking me up holding a sign with my name on it....it's just my thing....anyway...they are always professional, courteous and on time......use FL TOURS which also sponsors the boards!...ok...commercial over!)

It's about a 45-50 min ride but Im too excited to read or do anything but jump up and down (inside...not in the car!) The kids play gameboy and are happy. Suddenly, signs for the Port! Woo hooo....we are here!

The driver lets us off.....unloads all of our luggage (6 big bags....3 backpacks and a small carryon) I needed STUFF, ok? and we stand there and just stare at the ship!

OMG! It's huge and it's gorgeous! You can't imagine what it's like to stand there and see this big beautiful boat and know you are getting on it! Before they let you on, however, it's wait in line time. It's to prolong the Magical Anticipation I think.....actually they just have thousands of people to check in but I like the prolong the Magical anticipation idea...it works for me!

We proceed through security fairly quickly and we are handed a number 12 boarding number (geez, 12! I thought 11:30 was getting here early?) and then head up the escalator where we walk into what looks like bedlam and chaos but was actually very well organized. We divide and conquer. I head for the line to check us in and Dan takes the kids to sign up for the kids club. I have to get in the first time cruiser loser line (BUT HA! I will be in the Castaway Club line NEXT TIME! HA! Take that!)
Dan makes it through his line in half the time so I give him the camera and tell him to get some pics of everything and the kids. (he rarely gets the camera so this is a treat for him..lol!)

At the end of the line, they are doing a survery to see how long you waited and the guy in front of me is quite angry and tells her this is ridiculous and he's been waiting an hour and a half. I smirk to myself cause we have been actually waiting 40 mins (I checked the time...I had DISSERs to report back to).....the guy behind me tells her 30 mins (he was reading a book in line...smart man). I wanted to tell both of them my whole prolonging the Magical Anticipation theory but I didnt think they would get it!

So I hand in the paperwork...get all checked in....(all painless)...and head to the Mickey Ears door! Kaitlin and I are jumping up and down...a little....just a little ...and we go through the doors and they take our picture (a horrible picture btw...we didnt buy it....we really do look stressed out in it! LOL) and then we walk into the atrium. It's HUGE and simply gorgeous. They announce your family and Dan (whispers to me I can still smell the fresh paint, Rose....Titanic reference....I smack him...lol)

We walk around dazed and confused and I know people have said to go to Parrot Cay to eat but we want to be up on top. Seeing everything. We head to Topsiders for the buffet and find a difficult to locate table outside. I take the kids to get food and there isn't much for Kevin to eat. No chicken nuggets, burgers, or hot dogs. he gets bread and dessert...hey...it's vacation! He tells me...don't worry, Mom...Im cruisin! I will eat later! He's my happy no worries boy! I give him a kiss. He's not ruining the magic. We get back to our table and look...a drink! YAY! Bahama Mama's ...yum! I remember having shrimp but I was busy gawking at everything I didnt eat much. It was around 1:30 by this time.

After we ate, we were able to go see our room. Stateroom 6042...a wonderful location! Right between the forward and midship elevators on the left side of the ship. (PORT SIDE <-- that's ship talk!)
We decided to walk around a little and start finding our way around instead of swimming. We visit just about every floor and go see the kids clubs. Not that we will remember any of this! It's completely overwhelming at first if you havent cruised before. You never feel like you will remember any of it! We are just awed by the size of the ship and how grand it is. It's really beautiful and well maintained.

At 3pm, we head to the Promenade Lounge for our DIS meet. We meet a bunch of wonderful DISers who we see all over the ship and at excursions the rest of the cruise! It was so nice to feel like you had friends right away to make you feel at home! Thanks again to Magic In My Heart/Beckie for organizing everything. The wonderful gift bags she made for everyone, the lime green bracelets that we wore so we could recognize each other at first, and just making us all feel special.

After that, it's time for the muster so we head to our cabins and start unpacking a little (all of our bags are here..YAY!) while we wait for the call to go to deck 4 section H. (have you ever unpacked while wearing a life jacket? it ain't easy!) The drill was hot but painless and over quickly. We get ready to head to dinner.

We have LAPLAPL at 6pm. 6pm turned out to be the best time. You really needed that extra time to get ready after excursions. And yes we had formal night in Parrot Cay but really the time thing...was much better!

I consult my carefully planned what to wear to dinner sheet...yes...I did..I wrote down what we were wearing every night (this helped tremendously) even Dan who made fun of me...said this was a big help! We get dressed and head to Lumiere's. We take our wipe our hands before we let you into a single restaurant wipey and we are escorted to table 54. A table for 4. YAY! Not that we are unfriendly and didnt want to meet people...but we just were happy to have some family dinner time just for us. (I didnt even request a table to ourselves...it just happened). We ate together every night and it was a good thing for us. We had great family time at dinner!


is this getting long? I think I will continue in the next post......

Ok, so Lumieres.....table 54.


Our servers are Ciao Romano from the Phillipines and Kira from Australia. Our head server was Stephan from France. They were excellent and we really enjoyed them. Especially Kira who I think worked twice as hard! We loved her!

the kids start pointing out the details of the restaurant to me.
Mom, see the rose in glass in the ceiling....see the BATB mural in the back. We just sit and admire it all! It's very elegant and pretty.
I have the salad, scallops and for dessert a white chocolate dome with raspberry sauce! Yum!
Dan has a shrimp appetizer, salad, halibut and creme brulee
Kaitlin has a grilled steak and french fries and creme brulee
Kevin has chicken fingers (big shock) and fries and for dessert he tells Ciao
"I will have a selection of assorted ice cream" and points to his menu. (that's what it says...LOL!) When we are all done laughing, we figure out he wants vanilla ice cream with sprinkles.

yummy meal and great service...and the portions are nice so you dont feel like you totally overate. (at least that's what you tell yourself)

After dinner we head to Studio Sea to see Mickey Trivia then head to the Walt Disney Theater for the Welcome Aboard Show. Our seat for the whole trip becomes the far right side about 10 rows up from the front with kids in front of the two of us. (great seats and we dont fight the crowd for the middle which was full all the way back)


Welcome Aboard show was very good. We really enjoy all the disney shows and this one doesn't disappoint. It helps to get you excited for things to come. After the show, we walked around Deck 4 (look...the comfy chairs that DISsers told me about!) and walked through Shutters (this was foreshadowing for how much time I would spend there). Everyone is so tired from a long and busy day that we decide to head back to the cabin.

We go back and find our cabin all turned down with Swan towel animal from our stateroom host, Albert, complete with 4 chocolates. The kids start fighting over the top bunk so we flip a coin and Kevin wins. Kaitlin who is still getting her sea legs I think plus is exhausted...has a little meltdown...complains of a headache and goes to bed. We decide to all head to bed after I examine my navigator (and highlight it) for tomorrow. I think we were all asleep by 10:30 that night.


wooo hoooo...do we know how to party or what?


All in all.......a Magical day!

Awww... thanks!

Wonderful first day! Don't feel bad about being in bed by 10:30pm. All that sea air and excitement made for drowsy eyes early for us as well.

You are going to share the first three days at the Swan, right?

I forgot to add....

the family behind Kevin in his Thumbs up picture at Topsiders.....The woman said to her kids after they all ate...

"well, it was nice having this meal with you...I will see you all on Friday"
This cracked me and Dan up! Obviously, they have done this before!


and I also forgot to add that we did the Sail Away Party on Deck 9 which was a lot of fun. We were supposed to meet DISsers on Deck 10 but the kids wanted to be on the dance floor! (this turned out to be a bad thing because we were unable to meet the one family who had kids that emailed my kids before we went. Alex age 12 and John age 9.) They had late dinner seating so it was hard to meet up with them the whole trip and my kids didnt meet them till Wed night at the pirate party!

But we really enjoyed the sail away party and all the characters and music. Next time I would watch from Deck 10 so we can see as we sail away. (yet another reason to go back!)

My wife has a major problem with this. She doesn't feel good for almost a week after we cruise.

Great report and great pictures! Keep em coming!

Day Two:!We send our kids off and massage time!


For once in my life, I sleep in! 7am! Wooo hoooo! Honestly, that's great for me. Im not a good sleeper at home or on vacation. I hate to be missing something! This is the only day that I don't get up and do my roam around the ship at 6am. We had brought a digital clock from home but it was so bright that we covered it with a washcloth...lol...so we could sleep. I had my nightlight for the bathroom which was just enough light to get there!

things that were extremely valuable to have this trip: the nightlight, the digital clock with alarm, the power strip thingy for charging everything up and plugging all stuff in, the over the door hanger thingy which was the best. If only my family could have got on board for that system. I would pick stuff up...and put it there. They would ask...where's this? Uhmm...in the door thingy. Could they actually put their stuff there themselves? NO! but at least I could pick it up and know where it was when they asked. Which they did. A lot. I think by the last day, Dan finally realized he could just look there first without asking me where something was! I kept everything from sunglasses to jewelry to the pyscho camera (another story) to just about everything!

oh...and the popup hamper for dirty clothes...that was nice too. And the clothing list for dinner. I seriously recommend this for when you have 45 mins to get 4 people showered and out the door! (but I digress... )


I get up and shower.....and by then everyone else is up but that could be from the slamming things around so they dont miss everything on their first day that I am doing! I have a massage scheduled for 10:30am and Dan wants to go check the gym on the ship. After reading the HIGHLIGHTED navigator, the kids decide they want to see POTC 2 in the theater instead of visiting the kids clubs. It starts at 9:45 so after they get dressed we send them off to breakfast by themselves at Topsiders with Kaitlin given strict instructions to keep an eye on her brother. (we did WHAT???....we just sent our kids out on their own for breakfast and a movie.......what kind of parents are we???? LOL! I confess I was slightly nervous about this at first ....but I got over that real quick!) Kevin was thrilled cause he could ride the elevators without Dad making him taking the steps. (It was much faster to take the steps everywhere...plus that's exercise, right? )


Dan and I finish getting ready and I unpack and organize a few more things. (Im anal that way...it's the ICU nurse in me...I like organization). Then we head to Topsiders for Breakfast buffet. Mickey waffles with Strawberries became my staple. And fresh fruit...lots of it. No desire for eggs or omelets today. And Im kind of bummed...because I never even got to try an omelet (a reason to go back, right?) Dan and I take pics of each other then of the empty chairs where our kids should be. (this amused me greatly for some reason). It was really weird...I kept looking for them! LOL!

We walk around Deck 10 then head for the Spa/Gym. Working out on vacation? uhmmm..yeah..ok...have fun with THAT, honey! but it made him happy...he likes it...so he headed off (after a quick visit with fellow DISSER indimini/Bob ....so nice to see familiar faces wherever we go..you gotta love the DIS!) and I am directed to the Women's changing area where I get a locker and put on a robe and wait on the comfy lounger for them to come get me. Turns out they changed my masseuse to a guy so he was wandering around outside waiting for me and they finally yelled in for me. Hey...what did I know? I did what she told me to do! LOL! So, Liviu from Romania comes to take me to my private massage room (can I tell you that he was HOT! ? it made me a little nervous to be honest...lol...but I got over that too!) I have had two massages both by women before so it was a little unnerving but he was very courteous and professional and put me at ease. It was so relaxing! Truly the best way to start my cruise. You start laying face down on the table and I chose not to talk and just relax and enjoy. When I turned over, he put a little face mask on me scented with lavender...very relaxing and helped with the nervousness so that you aren't actually LOOKING at Hot guy massaging you!

we talked a little bit and I learned that he had a karate school in Romania and as both my kids are about to get their black belts ...we had a lot to talk about. It was over way too soon and he left so I could put the robe back on and then came the big product sell! This was the worst part. I politely listend and even thought...well, maybe I will buy one little tube of relaxing warm gel for my neck....(I was very tense there, ya know) but then he told me the prices. $54 for one little tiny tube. $200 if I wanted the whole set of stuff. I politely said no but he insisted on writing it all down with his name in case I changed my mind during the cruise. At this point, Im thinking...I know you get commission but quite frankly I would rather just give you a nice tip rather than buy junk I didnt want. LOL! I tipped him $25 which I think was more than enough.

On tipping, we really added all of that into our expenses before we left and we just considered it part of our experience. Everyone worked so hard on the ship and at the ports that we just felt like we couldnt not be generous with them.

Im all relaxed and I get dressed and head down to the cabin to reshower. Very oily and I dont want to burn in Key West! Dan and the kids are there and the kids had a great time off by themselves. Dan enjoyed his workout and the machines there. We take pics from our verandah of Key West. It looks gorgeous and the water is beautiful! We are very excited to get off the ship!

It's weird to send them off on their own, isn't it? Like you, we very quickly became more than comfortable with it. A cruise is truely the only vacation that is both a family vacation and each individuals vacation at the same time. Parents and children can have their own experiences over the same week while at the same time sorta kinda still being together. It's great!

Cheryl...Im neglecting my whole house here. Luckily I cleaned before I left for vacation and very smartly bought all our back to school stuff too! Both kids are having a friend over today and Dan is puttering around before going back to work tomorrow so I hope to get some more written soon.

Im trying to download my Key West Pics but like the psycho camera episode (to come soon) that ain't going so well!
