I am loving your TR. Your wedding was amazing. I love all the detail at the reception and your dress is gorgeous. We hope to take a cruise for our honeymoon and I knew I picked the right man when he asked me if I wanted to go on a Disney cruise. He is not as in love with Disney as I am so we shall see!

1. Your wedding pics are so great! They are completely unique and beautiful, just like your wedding! I love the old fashioned feel to some of them.

2. Your husband's dessert at Palo looks amazing! mmmmm! What a great day, I love how you ended the day snuggling in the room watching finding nemo.

3. Wow, the ship is just gorgeous isn't it? I can't get over all of the photos of the ship!

can't wait to hear more!

Awwww thanks that is very sweet of you to say.

Honestly DH and I don't like Knotts Berry Farm that much, really the only time we ever go there is when it's Knotts Scary Farm for Halloween, otherwise we think it's kinda boring.

Thank you so much, it makes me so happy that everyone is liking my writing.

The wedding was pretty amazing and came out better then DH and I expected it to. We had to do all the decorations ourselves with the exception of lights and the fabrics so we had no idea how the final outlook was going to be, but all of our guest loved it so we were happy.

You will have such a great time on the cruise and I'm almost sure that your DF will be a bigger Disney fan after sailing with them. We have a friend who is not a huge Disney fan either but when he saw our pictures from the honeymoon and found out that we rebooked another cruise he actually asked if he could come with us (with a date of course). I was shocked none the less and reminded him it was Disney but he really wants to go. So have faith in your DF, he will love it.

Thank you I too love the old fashioned look for some of the photos, I thought it fit our wedding theme perfectly.

DH did like his desert at Palo, everything was just amazing about that place and we are anxiously awaiting getting back there.

The ship is beautiful, down to every last little detail. We felt compelled to keep taking pictures of it from every different angle. And I still have more coming up.

I'm sorry that your excursion got cancelled I know you were looking forward to it. Hoping you liked Atlantis--I've only seen it from the air--after we flew out of Fort Lauderdale, we headed out that way to come home--at least I think it was Atlantis

Looking forward to more pictures and TR

All aboard the Disney Wonder! Our day in Nassau, and what a day it was!

Okay so I left off with DH and I leaving the Atlantis resort to go in search of the public beach. Unfortunetly for us we happened to be on the other side of the resort from the spot we needed to be to get on the road to the beach. So we walked for what seemed like forever around the Atlantis resort all the way back over to the spot were we originally started this journey. Good times!

We spotted the sign that said beach access and started walking that way, to bad the sign doesn't tell you just how far you have to walk. Granted if I hadn't been wearing flip flops and DH wasn't carrying a back pack and it wasn't 90 DEGREES OUT WITH 100% FREAKING HUMIDITY we would have been okay.

Anyway it was a beautiful walk and we might have really enjoyed it more under different circumstances. Here are some photos along the way, I think DH was just trying to ignore my unpleasant ranting and raving about always carrying some cash no matter what and what I wouldn't give for taxi money and something about swimming with stingrays and stupid boats breaking down by snapping photos.

http://

http://

http://

When we got to the end of that long street you see in the photos a guy in a golf cart that worked at the hotel we were walking past actually stopped and asked us if we wanted a ride the last part of the way. Thank you nice, wonderful man you are a life savor. Seriously he was because I was fading fast and really we both looked alot like this when the guy stopped.

So in a flash we arrived at the beach, or I should say the last leg to get to the beach. The nice guy drops us off and we thank him a billion times and then he tells us, "No problem, now just walk up that hill and you will be there" Again more unpleasent words, comments and such start coming from me. Thank God for him giving us a ride because it gave me a chance to get some more energy and find feeling in my legs again, enough so that I could make it up the hill, sorry I don't have a photo of it for you. We make it up the hill, me going really, really slow and when we reach the top we are bombarded by some guys renting beach chairs and umbrellas and some other stuff for you. Well I must have given them the look of death because they only tried twice with us then backed off.

FINALLY WE HAVE ARRIVED!!!!

http://

So we dropped our stuff and ran for the water and OMG was it refreshing.

http://

http://

http://

We spent alot of time in the water even when it started raining. We figured since there was no lightning or thunder it was okay and the waves didn't get any bigger so we didn't feel unsafe. Plus the rain was off and on and the sun would come out bright as bright could be. I have to tell you guys because DH and I thought this was just really funny. Okay so it starts to rain the first time, really it was only a sprinkle and so DH and I start looking around at the people on the shore. Now I don't know if its just us that thought this was hysterical and rather stupid of the people in question, but I kid you not when I say that people in BATHING SUITS, ALREADY WET FROM BEING IN THE WATER WERE SCRAMBLING FOR SHELTER FROM THE RAIN. Umm HELLO? Your already wet weirdos. We couldn't figure it out but we thought is was very amusing and it kept us entertained for a while.

All aboard the Disney Wonder! Our day in Nassau, and what a day it was!

So here are some more pictures from our day at the beach.

http://

http://

http://

http://

http://

Then we tried to get all artsy with our wedding rings and the water but I don't think it came out that well.

http://

So after all that drama getting to the beach, all ended up well. We had a really good time and the beach was really nice, better then we expected and we would go back again.

We decided to leave around 5pm and head back to the ship, I new we had the long walk back to the ferry's and I wanted to go while I was feeling up to it and not to tired from swimming.

So off we went and we took some more shots on the walk back.

http://

http://

http://

http://

The walk was alot better this time although still hot but the sun was going down so it was easier on us. Pretty soon we arrived at our destination.

http://

We could see our beloved home on the sea while we waited.

http://

So our boat came and we headed back, we didn't take any photos on the return trip since you just pass everything you passed the first time. Upon arriving DH asked me if I wanted to go over to Senor Frogs for a drink. I really wanted to but I felt so dirty from sweating and I reeked of salt water that I knew I wouldn't have been comfortable if we went so we just headed back to the ship.

All aboard the Disney Wonder! Our day in Nassau, and what a day it was!

So after we got through Festival Place and had our passports checked we stopped for our pictures under the Nassau sign.

http://

http://

Then finally home sweet home.

http://

http://

Once on board we realized how starving we were so instead of heading to our stateroom we headed up to Deck 9 and Pluto's to grab some food. I believe we had pizza to tide us over. This is us lounging and just relaxing for a bit.

http://

http://

Then we decided to hop into the hot tub for a bit and soothe our aching muscles from the day. I put my foot into the adult pool and man was that water cold, I was under the impression that it was heated but I guess not. Hot tub it is for me.

http://

http://

We stayed in there for about 45 min. and it felt soooooo good, I didn't want to leave but it seemed that more people decided we had a good idea and pretty soon it was getting a bit crowded.

Back in the room we showered and got dressed then plopped, literely plopped down onto the couch in the and didn't move. It was at that moment tiredness took over. So we debated on what to do for a good 20 min. and finally we decided to order room service for dinner and then see how we felt. Now this is the second night we are not having dinner with our table mates.

We ordered our meal and soon it arrived and it was yummy.

http://

http://

http://

http://

After our bellies were stuffed we sat in a food coma for a bit and then Jay our stateroom host knocked on the door to see if we needed anything. He was unable to do our turndown service since we stayed in that night. He was such a sweetie, we asked for more towels and when he came in with them he took our dinner plates out for us and asked if we needed anything at all. I told him I was sad because I didn't get a towel animal that night and he offered to come in and show me how to make one. We did the octupus one and it was so cool.

All aboard the Disney Wonder! Our day in Nassau, and what a day it was!

This was the outcome of the towel octopus.

http://

http://

So cute, did I mention I loved Jay.

After a while DH and I decided to go off and explore the ship a bit, well not really to much because we got tired pretty quick. It was our intention to try and see the show that night and some of the other shows on board but it never happened.

DH was finally able to get a good shot of the chihuly.

http://

http://

http://

That was our last picture of the day as we headed back to our room. I don't even remember putting my head on the pillow, but we were both out cold until the next morning.



Up next our day in Castaway Cay. What could possibly happen to us there?

I have never understood why people flee from water like a pack of people hungry sharks are coming when it rains. It is nice to enjoy the entire pool/ocean to yourself when this happens though.

Pics are beautiful from your beach day!

As usual I'm loving your pictures. That's pretty funny about people getting out of the water if it's raining Oh well, what can you do? And I love the ship...I'm hoping we get to take a Disney Cruise soon.

Sounds like you had a great time even with some disappointments thrown in. I may have to check into a cruise. You're making it sound like a lot of fun. And the pics are great.

great updates, sorry about the cancellation, but hey it gives you a reason to go back right? it is hilarious about the people running for shelter from the rain... the same thing happened when we were vacationing in the bahamas, we just laughed at them and kept swimming... i cant wait to see what your tablemates are like when you get to the dining room. looking forward to more updates
