I'm confused (shocker). What exactly are you wanting to tell your family? That you are giving each other a cruise?

They wouldn't understand if we just went on a cruise....let alone try to explain who it was with.
I know from previous experience. Mum went on a Harley Cruise last year, and everyone in the family treated her like she had the plague and lost her marbles.
But they might understand it a bit better if it was a gift?

Marbles??? Who has marbles???

I have a problem meeting the expectations of my family. I stopped trying a long time ago...no excuses, this is me, and this is what I do.

And I stopped having expectations for my family. It is what it is, and I'm happier.

I have a bit of a quandary, similar to Brandie.

Namine and I are giving each other the cruise as a birthday/Christmas present. No big deal there, we are both pumped and excited (me more than him, but he hasn't been bitten by the bug yet ).

Where I am looking for ideas is how to tell our families. When I went down as a college program participant, it was easy to explain it away as an intern in the happiest place on earth and had a going away party. His family isn't really the vacation type, and mine will roll their eyes into the backs of their heads. I realize there are only 37 or so days until Christmas, but why plan everything so far in advance?!?!
Good Lord we have some of the same family members! They are type that work every single day of their lives and then drop dead having done nothing, but work. You've both worked hard and can well afford to take the cruise. Why should anyone question it? Personally, if this is going to become a family mini-drama, don't say anything till you get ready to leave. Why listen to 5 months of grief? We're here to share the excitement with you.

Meh, y'all are probably right. I already get enough guff from the Disney art, pins, figures, and Christmas trees...Who cares what they think? Laissez bontemps roullez!

YEAH!!!

I'm lucky that I come from a Disney family. They shake their heads about the DIS, but they understand the Disney thing!

The only one that remotely understands it is my Goddaughter. She is enamored with everything relating to a Disney princess. Too bad Uncle Todd loves the baddies. I'd bring her but my sister would flip for her to miss school. And then I would feel bad about leaving the rest of my nieces and nephews behind.
