Our First Disney Cruise - Trip Report! - August 2013, WC on the Fantasy!

Hey all! I originally intended to do my trip report in the same thread as my planning journal, but then I realized that there was a completely separate section for trip reports, so here I am!

Right now, this post is a bit of a placeholder so I can get organized & link all of the relevant info for anyone who might be, let's get started!

Emily & Channing's 1st DCL Trip! - The Trip Report!

Planning Journal: Here!

Trip Report:
  • Actual trip report coming soon!

Blog Post Links:
The details:
Emily (me) & Channing (bf) - both 25
(I'm a photographer & a part time CM at the Contemporary, Channing works in VIP Tours at Universal)
Ship: The Fantasy
Dates: August 3rd - August 10th
Itinerary: Western Caribbean
Stateroom: 6677

Part 0 - The Backstory
I don't feel the need to re-write all of the backstory from the trip...if you want to read the whole spiel, you can check out the planning journal here! Here are the main points:
  • I've never been on a cruise before, and this is DBF's first Disney cruise
  • We went for Jessica & Curtis's wedding - I was their photographer
  • There were 23 total people in our traveling party
  • This trip report might be helpful for couples/people in their 20s/people traveling without kids/people researching DCL weddings
  • This trip report will definitely be photo heavy!

That's it for now...hopefully I'll post the first day's recap soon! Thanks for reading & I hope this is at least slightly interesting.
