Do make sure that you get a Navigator for each adult in the cabin and highlight the evening before things you think you might LIKE to do. Do check out the spa on sailing day. They have a visitation at 3pm and even have a drawing for a few prizes.

Keep asking questions cause you know you will get answers here!!
Aww, thanks! See, learning things already!

I wouldn't say it was a last minute change to my travel plans, since it isn't to December. Originally my trip was to camp at Fort Wilderness for two weeks. But then I got to thinking not too long ago I'd rather stay at a hotel since it is just me going, and somehow I found my way over to Disney Cruise site. It was between this cruise and a Caribbean 7-night. I figured I'd start out on a 4 night to see if I like it!

I have dreams of doing a Hawaiian cruise (Disney or not), and figured this would be the perfect learning cruise!

I can't wait!

(Except the whole Carnival ship being stranded has me a tad bit worried... thinking I'll have to remember to bring along a few extra snacks and some bottled water)

My parents are coming as well to help with the little one. We cruised with my parents on the Dream just after she started sailing in 2011 and we are all excited to go back during the Xmas season.

to you both. Hey dsneygirl, I've had to rebook one of mine a few times before I took my first cruise so I know how you feel. Hopefully you'll stay with this date and join us.

Hello tabbytrekker, take tinker1bell's advice and just relax. It's suppose to be fun. You'll learn so much from these boards and I'm sure anyone here will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

A four night Disney cruise is a great place to start.But I warn you...you'll want more next time. And I hear you about Hawaii. I was hoping for a disney cruise next year for my 25 th anniversary but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. Just not in the intineraries.

I need to get to Hawaii before I'm 30 (2015) since it is the only state I haven't been to. And I figured a Hawaiian cruise would be the easier way to see so much Hawaii has to offer - like the volcano! So I'm sad it isn't offered by Disney right now Maybe I'll just have to go back to Alaska instead by cruise
