First of all, thanks for coming along my little journey of a cruise trip report! My family consists of me, a Disney fanatic practically since birth, thanks to a mom and grandma who love Mickey, I work full-time for an airline, so DH can stay at home with our two kiddos DD(5) and DS(18mos). Ive been on DCL twice before (both times on the Wonder you can visit my last trip report here:http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2616095), but my last trip I unexpectedly found myself pregnant (with now DS) which was not how I planned to spend my Im turning 40 and want to have a fu-fu drink on the beach cruise. So while I had a Wonder-ful time, Ive since still felt like I was jipped! Fast forward 2 years, and Im sitting at work , despondent that we decided not to renew our Premier Annual Passports (boy has the price gone up!), and thus no Disney plans which hasnt been the case for about 5 years! Suddenly I get an email from an interline company (travel industry discount) that the DCL is offering deep-discounted cruise for airline employees (but read the fine print that these deals may already be gone) that leaves in 3 days. I quickly text DH while clicking through to the website, only to find that, indeed, the deals are already gone. We hadnt even been thinking about taking a cruise until DS turned 3 (and could take full advantage of the Oceanears Club!), but that email teaser kept tickling the Disney part of my brain. After talking more rationally about it with DH, we decided if a deal like that ever came up again, we would book it for just the 2 of us and work out the details later. A few weeks go by, and WHAM! Another email but this one is even further discounted, and is offering sailing leaving between 1 6 weeks away. As my heart rate rises, I see that one of the sailing dates comes back the day before my birthday DONE! I clicked through, secured a balcony cabin for two adults, and paid in full before I gave it a second thought! DH was super excited, Grandma not so much. She would have much rather gone with us, then stay home and watch the two kiddos! Well, I had 5 weeks to smooth things over. Plans were put in motion for our inaugural Disney Dream cruise November 15-18 to Nassau and Castaway Cay!
