1st Time Cruiser just Got Back

Hello for those of you who are considering your first Disney Cruise, we just got back from our cruise yesterday on a 4 night. We LOVED it. Had a great time even with a little rain on the last 2 days. We had so much fun, we booked another cruise for 2010. I have nothing to compare it to since it was our first cruise, but it really was so relaxing and fun. I love the parks, but I was so exhausted by the end of the day, I never felt like I got much rest. With the cruise, we felt like we did a lot but also were more relaxed and rested.

You will have a great time on your cruise.

My trip report begins on page 2.

I will definitely put together a trip report and post some photos. I can't wait to share. And not to mention, everyone has been so helpful to me on this site, its my turn to give back. I'll be downloading the pictures and working on the trip report, will try to post something in the next couple of days.

Only 519 more days till my next Disney Cruise!

Hi, Linda. Glad that you enjoyed your cruise and will be joining us in 2010. I am just glad that I don't have 519 days before my next cruise; only 83 more days for us. We will be on the Wonder in August.

Can't wait to read your trip report. See you on our cruise thread.

LC30, Would you please PM me your navigators and movie list. My daughter is driving me crazy to see an updated nav. We leave June 7- four day Wonder. I can't find anybody who has kept them from this month.

Welcome back, I can't wait to read your trip report! I was so excited after our first cruise. It was just me and my sister first time around. We wanted to "try" it out before booking when the kids got older! We have cruised twice since then.
