That's so cute how Tracy ordered the "Romance for 2" package because you were celebrating your anniversary. When she made you go somewhere else in the airport to make the phone call, did you have any idea what she was doing?

Looking forward to reading more about your trip!

We were so excited to finally cross that gangway and step on board the ship. The cabin was truly fantastic, and I think we made great use of the verandah during our cruise.

Welcome!! I hope you enjoy reading and that we can get you thoroughly pumped for your own cruise! I'm sure you'll have such a great time enjoying Deck 8—I know we did!

I knew she was trying to add something to our reservation, but I didn't know what, so it was a really fun surprise. Hope you keep enjoying reading along

Hi Taylor, just finished reading your Disneyland report and I loved hearing about you and Tracy's adventures! So glad to hear you're both ok! Isn't it funny how when you read these trip reports you feel like you know the person/s now....lol. Anyway, can't wait to hear how you liked the cruise, my family and I are Gold members on the disney cruiseline now......we LOVE it! We haven't been to Alaska yet with Disney so your trip report will be fun! Take care of yourselves and your kitty cat too!

So glad that you read and enjoyed the DLR report! I totally know what you mean about feeling like you "know" the people you read about on the DIS. Being Gold members must mean you have plenty of awesome DCL adventures under your belt! I highly recommend getting up to Alaska if possible. It was truly amazing. Hope you have fun reliving our first cruise with us via the blog

Glad you had good luck with your tablemates! We were spoiled our first cruise with two really great couples, one from California and one from Denmark, who were all avid Disney fans. Our last cruise, not so much.

I do wish that couples were always seated at four tops as sitting across from your significant other makes conversation extremely difficult with awkward tablemates.

Loving your new report. Sure wish I'd known you were visiting our beautiful city. If ever you're coming back, let me know. I'll take you on a personal tour to all the hot tourist spots, including a walk down Storybrooke's main street.

We were really glad to have luck with our table mates as well. I feel like since it was our first cruise, having unpleasant people would have put a bad taste in our mouth. Sorry to hear you've had mixed luck in the past. I'm sure that's probably always how it has the potential to go...

Well I'm sure that would have made our Vancouver experience much more exciting! Next time!

Another great update! Your writing style really makes me feel as if I were there. Love the totem pole and the shirts.

Thanks for taking us all along on your trip to Alaska!
