We have sailed on Freedom in the past. I'd love to share my pics with you if you're interested? Don't think I did a TR though.

I heard that! I think I will overprepare as usual. Heck, I already have one excursion reserved in Grand Cayman - same one we did on this cruise which I'll detail soon!

Yes ma'am! I have a whole set I use on the patio - oh heck, I use them all the time for everyday use, plus my great big Ohio State one for travel!

I am not sure which I love more, Palo brunch or Palo dinner. Both incredible in their own ways!

We have sailed on RCL Liberty of the Seas (Freedom's sister ship) - twice - love it! I am sure you will have an amazing time. I lose my hubby every time to Flow Rider - but that works for me because then I can lie there and read my book with no annoying interruptions!

Ole McBlarneystone told us all about the "firsts" this trip - first time two Disney ships in Port Canaveral together. First time two Disney ships in ANY port together...... And he warned us of the "epic horn battle" that would soon begin.....
Perhaps Ole McBlarneystone had one too many DOTD, as the Wonder and the Dream were both in Port Canaveral on January 6, 2011 before the Dream's maiden voyage and the Wonder's WB Panama Canal Cruise. And if we really want to get technical and call Castaway Cay a port, the Wonder and Magic were there together back in 1999 when the Wonder was on its maiden voyage too.

But it makes for a great story any way, and another reason to celebrate
