Glad you liked it!!! I'm going to try and add the last day when we got off the ship later on tonight. You'll have a great time on your cruise!

Last Morning

Boo....last morning.......but YEA since we're heading to Epcot as soon as we pick up the rental car!!!


Since we were going to skip breakfast and head straight to Disney we kept our luggage the night before and took it off the ship ourselves. It really wasn't that big of a deal. Did have a bit of a scare when they were swiping our cards on the way out!! My card flashed something and they had to call to make sure it was ok that I left!!! Finally after what seemed like FOREVER they said I could go!!! I had left a credit card on file before we boarded, but I didn't see the note on the paper that said I had to go to guest services to settle my bill. Not sure what the point of leaving a credit card on file is if you still have to go to guest services. But whatever Lol! Got through customs easily and then headed out to find the rental car spot.

We were first in line for the rental car van and they came quickly. We stopped at a few other cruise ships to pick up people and I felt a little sorry for them for having to sail on such "ghetto ships" lol! One little girl was asking her dad why they couldn't go on the Disney ship and he said it was way too expensive.

The rental car experience was HORRIBLE!! We used Thrifty and the counter people were SO SLOW!! It didn't help that the people ahead of us renting cars weren't American and I don't really think they understood the process at all. There were 3 families ahead of me and I think it took 30 minutes for me to get to the counter. It was nuts.

Finally we got the car and before you know it we were in France buying artwork on the street!!!

Jess I think we may be on the same trip looking at your dates (May 9- Dream?).

Loved this report! Trying to decide what to do in Nassau. Love to see you just walked around and enjoyed some time there then went back to the ship to enjoy that, too! It is our first DCL and 1st time in Nassau so I was trying to decide what to do (it is me, my mom and my 4 yo DS). I am debating on the trip to Blue Lagoon and doing the shallow dolphin experience. Have you done that? We definitely plan on a beach day at CC. ARGH now what to do

I almost booked the Sea lion encounter in Nassau at Blue Lagoon but it just took so much time. I didn't want to waste a whole day away from the ship!

Good to know. My little guy is 4 and the trip is so short though I do think we will have to go again sometime (or maybe 3 ) just to get enough ship time! I just booked Alaska 2014 today for 9 days. Different ship of course but I haven't even gone on a Disney ship and I am already hooked
