    Just back from 20th disnsey cruise 12/17. Getting on is alot easier, as soon as you go thru the scanners they give you your boarding pass. We were #2, Went to the regular line, castaway cay line was longer. Now all the people in your party dont have to go thru line just as long as adult has all birth certificates and driver's liscense. Started letting on at 11:45 weather was crummy. Sail away was at least rain free. Weather at Key West was good. Weather at day at sea was good too and at Grand cayman great. Weather at Costa Maya was terrible and also on Thursday. But luckily at Castaway Cay excellent. Water at adult beach very cold, only a handful got in. Also at adult beach only 1 hammock. Went to family beach at 2:00, got into water there not too bad. Only had 1 sunset and that was Friday. It was incredible. On pirate night the pirates didnt come down the rope or zip line, weather was too windy. They did get off the fireworks. Our cruise started off bad because one family couldnt go, there son got pneumonia. He was 15 and was very upset. This was going to be there first cruise. He told his mom he ruined it for everybody. I felt so sorry for them. Hopefully we will get to do another one with them. We did have something happy happen on the cruise, my daughter got engaged at Lumiere's. There were 16 of us to see it happen, he got down on 1 knee and proposed. Got off ship at 7:30 and were on the road by 7:45 am after over 14 hours arrived home in cincy oh at 10:30 pm, and off to 11:00 pm mass,
