EDIT, 5/24/2010: Welcome to our pre-cruise TR...followed by our ACTUAL TR! To begin at the beginning... Basically, we leave a month from today, and I'm too excited to wait until AFTER the cruise to start posting about it First...an explanation of the title is in order! Basically, this cruise is my DBF's 30th birthday present. Although he won't turn 30 until a few days after we return, due to other plans we had for Memorial Day weekend, this cruise had to be a sort of pre-birthday birthday celebration. You know, life gets in the way when you're an adult I have actually been on three cruises in the past, but despite being a pretty big Disney nut...none of them was a Disney cruise! Go figure. DBF, on the other hand, has NEVER been on a cruise...period! And speaking of that whole being-an-adult thing getting in the way...well, due to a slight lack of available vacation days, we could really only do a 3-day cruise. I have to admit that I looked into Royal Caribbean at first ...but I think I knew from the start that it would always be Disney. So I took a deep breath and coughed up the extra couple hundred bucks a person, figuring that the adults-only pool, jacuzzi, restaurant (Palo, I mean), and fact that we can bring our own alcohol on board (to an extent) would make it worth my while So back in late February, we booked our 5/20 departure on a 3-day Bahamas cruise, Disney Wonder style. And some friends even decided to come with, although I'm admittedly hoping a couple others jump the gun and show up last minute, as well But for now, the cast is as follows: Myself, Tara, 27 DBF, Steve, 29/30 DF, Jonathan, 27 And DF Jennifer (Jonathan's GF), mid-20s (no, I don't know her exact age, bad friend, I know) So this is the beginning of the beginning...our pre-cruise trip report, that is!
