    Btw OP, great trip report! I think you and your partner have similar tastes to me and DH! (I like reading adult-only trip reports.... I need cocktail reviews!) It looks like you guys had so much fun. Great pics too. :)

    You are so going to love the Eastern Caribbean, especially St. Maarten! Make sure you try the Guavaberry Emporium so yummy hint; the liqueur is much smoother than the rum but both are very good.

    Thanks for the report, we're looking at doing a four night on the Dream after our WDW next year, it looks fabulous!

    We also just got off a 6 night out of Galveston, and had no problems or weird looks. Although one of the tour guides in Grand Cayman, thought my partner was my mother! :rotfl2:

    Even our tablemates seemed to have no problem, I wasn't surprised that the couple from Vancouver were completely open minded, but I was pleasantly surprised that the ones from Houston and Louisiana seemed OK with us as well.

    I think the CMs know that the better they treat the guests, the bigger the tips they will receive, so they go out of their way to be nice to almost anyone they can. Our server at Palo even asked me to "friend" him on FB so he can "know me better" when we return to the Magic in 2014.

    The disneydork shirts we design and make ourselves. Have about 8 designs now including a carsland one. Making an Art Deco inspired one for our next Fantasy cruise in August 2014.

    Thanks for all the kind words about the report and photos. Hope you all enjoy all the photos. There's a lot. :)

    Counting down the days until our next cruise!

    Love your pictures! I just booked my first Disney cruise for February and your pics made me even more excited! We're going on the Dream too and it looks sooo beautiful.

    But I agree that there should be pics of the Mickey head pedi... :)

    Loved your trip report! The shirts are awesome. The pictures are awesome. Is it October 13th yet?? pixiedust: I'm going on my first ever cruise with my sister (no kids!!) so it was great to read a no kid report. Can't wait to enjoy some of that champagne! By the way, you two are a cute couple!

    Thank you so much! Regarding the T's, We designed and made the shirts ourselves and get a LOT of comments, especially when we're at DL. We hope to make some cruise specific ones for our next cruise in August of next year on the Fantasy. The nice thing about DCL, is that you can enjoy places on the ship where there are no kids if you want, so you can pick and choose. Makes it nice. :)

    Loved your trip report. You look like you had a blast, and what beautiful pictures. If you don't mind me asking, what camera do you use?
