Glad to find this TR! The last two times we went to DW, we stayed in POR, loved seeing those pics again! Made me feel at "home"

So sorry to hear about the loss of Bobby's father and his aunt. Prayers for your family at this time.

I would love to do a Disney cruise someday, maybe in a year or two when my youngest isn't "climbing" on everything, she would make me too nervous..

We started to walk around the ship and took some pictures.
Adult pool!


my dad pointing to the sign saying no one under 18 allowed. aaaahhhh




Goofy pool. Loved the screen!


Mickey pool that stayed that yucky murky color the whole time...

It was hot, so we went down to explore some of the other decks, and look who we found standing all alone!


side note: This was one thing we noticed and loved about the cruise. If you want character interaction where you don't have to stand in line for 30 minutes, this is it! We had several "accidental" charater interactions. This was a great welcome onto the boat!
Chip n dale took off down the hall so we follwoed them, they started playing around and rolling on the ground and being goofy, so, I jumped in!
Here they are with their CM being silly


ya ok buddy???


I really don't know what they were doing!


Then one was down on one knee so I said "oh my are you proposing!" so then he pretended too, and I said I was taken and he tried to kiss me, it was really cute.




We finally said our goodbyes, and headed back to our rooms for the lifeboat drill.
Everyone has to take this picture!


shiny!


the drill was quick and painless. We got to our spots, stood there about 4-5 minutes and then it was time for the sailaway party!

Great update. So excited for more updates, we are also double dipping in January and want to hear how the transitions between cruises went. Do you think you would B2B again? Did you have the same stops? Ours is a 4 day then 3 with both cruises stopping at Nassau and CC.

double dip = 2 stops at castaway cay, we didn't do back to back cruises. it was a 5 night that went to CC twice and Nassau. There was soeone in our group who did B2B though

Sorry, still learning all the lingo!

I read that you are doing the Disney Full Marathon. Very jealous!! I just ran the Seattle Rock-n-Roll. It was our 3rd Full and our last, it was a great run but I'm too old!! 1/2's are in my future and I would love to do the Disney Princess 1/2, looks like a really fun run!

we got up on deck and got one of the last spots right on the railing. It. was. hot. Bobby proceeded to sit down in a chair while the rest of us stood up to see over the railing.
BTW--do you notice his sunglasses? He broke them when we got in the room and was pretty devestated, he refuses to step outside with sunglasses, so we were not sure what we were going to do!








before the party was over, my dad saw a bunch of people walking to the fornt of the ship to watch it pull out, so we left to walk up there. There was a little breeze and it was much cooler!
We saw a couple stingrays in the water, and then, all of the sudden we heard that wonderful ship horn, and I was so excited (and trying not to cry, I had waited so long to hear that horn!) our cruise was officially starting!
We watched for about 20 minutes as the ship moved along ther water.
Then, we realized we had 5:45 dinner seating and it was 5:15, time to go!
All of our luggage had safetly arrived, and we got dressed for our first dinner at Animators Pallate.

This place was so cool! We were shown to our table where we met Ricardo, our head server, and Allwyn, the assistant server.
Bobby and I with Allwyn




mom and dad




I did a really good job the first night of taking food pictures then totally slacked off!
I really don't remember what most of this food is, sorry! I know the soup was baked potato and it was good.



Bobby ordered the kids mac and cheese for me to have as part of my meal b/c he knows I LOVE it!


I do remmeber this, it was mine, some kind of chicken and pasta, it was yummy!


one of Bobby's entrees (he always ordered at least 2)


Dinner was good, and after we went and walked around in the shops and Bobby bought some sunglasses. Then, we got seats for the Golden Mickey's! The show was so good! I cried at the end. Definately worth seeing!
We were so worn out we went back to the rooms and went to bed! We were SO BORING on this trip at night...like old people, it was ridiculous!

up next: Castaway Cay!

We woke up very excited to start our first day on Castaway Cay! I had heard so many wonderful things, and seen picutres, and it absolutely lived up to our expectations. It was WONDERFUL!

But first, breakfast! We were just pulling in as we left our room to eat. We went up to the Buffet, and looked out over the island as we ate.


fffooodddd

















We were so excited to get out there!
this is outside our window

We went back to our room
s and put on sunscreen and got our bags and headed down to the gangway right as they started letting people off the ship.
We were finally here!
Don't they look thrilled?


real post office!




We walked to the tram stop


and waited to go to the NEXT tram stop, which would take us to Serenity Bay!




we didn't have to wait long for a tram, and we were off!
Welcome!


up next: PLENTY more pictures of Castaway Cay!
