I didn't discover the DIS until right before our first cruise so no FE exchange for us. I do have a couple of TRs floating around here somewhere so you may have seen my name there or on the boards.

The Paradise is my favorite drink of the day. We tried the drink of the day everyday on our last cruise and they were all really good and a great value but the Paradise is my favorite. The Paradise could easily turn me into a lush.

That DIS meet was HUGE!!
So big I think we only ended up saying hello to a hand full of people - wish we had got to meet more of the group and spend some time
Your kids are adorable!

I am also not great at just throwing myself into a group situation. I like to hold hands and wade in with someone I know.
Ah my Tweedle, I will hold your hand and we can wade in together...or just skip off singing to ourselves!

Those sharks were just out there mocking you, biding their time...

your shark obsession cracks me up!

I seriously loved that Paradise drink. Had I know it would have been my favorite of the week I would have had a lot more that first day!!!

Yummo!!!

It was gigantic.

I have to say, my favorite part of cruise- group wise, was the mixology you arranged. I had so much fun at that! Plus the smaller group at that event allowed you talk and interact more (you know..and the alcohol helped!) Hahahaha!

Our cupcake group is much smaller... so I think I will be fine. But we can still totally hold hands and skip in singing... I'm totally down with that!

I am thinking there may need to be some drunken shark pictures at the Seas. Just for giggles and grins!

I think I may need to make a masterlist of all the drunken photos we are taking because I already cannot remember them all and we haven't even started drinking yet!

Me, I stick to who I know when I am in a group...so uh...that would be you. Prepare yourself.

Problem is- we'll forget the masterlist anyways so we'll just wing it in the parks. Whatever we come across will do, I'm sure.

DrunkenMockingbirdJamboTweedles stick together. That's just how it is.

Hi Nicole. I just wanted to check in and let you know I'm following your review/report. I really want to do a Disney Cruise one day. We can't decide if it would be worth it as adults (empty nesters) or if we should just wait a few (hopefully several - like 15) years, for grandchildren to take.

Thanks for coming over and following!!

Everyone has their own thoughts/options/ect about adult only Disney Cruises. For many- they love it. Disney def. has their own special style of class that other cruise lines can't match.

For me, I PERSONALLY (opinion only having done one) wouldn't. For me, the draw is the wide activities for the family/children. And there are so, so many children on board. So many. I like children. Heck, I have three. But thousands of them, everywhere I turn... it would not be what I want if I was cruising adult only. I know it would annoy me.

Course I say that now when I'm in the midst of the crazy parenting years with three children where I never seem to have a minute to myself. And I dream nightly of minutes to myself... so when I think 'adults only' I don't want any children around. If you can kinda understand my angle. It could be very different perspective several years down the road where I know I will be missing the craziness of my kids needing me so much..........

Hi, I am hopping on board this TR!

My family and I are taking our first ever cruise aboard the Fantasy this October. We too will be headed to the Eastern Caribbean. We are just a BIT excited...

Love your TR so far. We are a family of five as well. Life indeed is crazy with three kiddos. But I don't THINK I would trade it for the world.
