Now, that I have been home for a week and have caught up with life after vacation, I feel like I can update everyone about the trip. It was truly a fabulous vacation and I highly recommend it for those of you with young children or granchildren. The cruise provided us with the quality family time we wanted during the day and the much needed adult time we craved in the evening. Disney, as most of us know, is tops in quality of service and they did not disappoint on the cruise.
The boat is designed so that their is an adult quiet cove area in the front of the ship with a small pool, swim up bar, hot tub, and lounges for adults only. The family pools have a huge movie screen with Disney movies playing throughout the day with a water flume ride that jets around the top deck of the ship. The spa was very relaxing with its own hot tubs and various showers and steam rooms for adults to enjoy.
For the kids, there is the older teen club for 15-18, the tween club for 11-14, and the club that my girls loved, the Kids Club for 3-10 year olds. My girls went to the club every night during our 8 pm dinner so that we had a nice time with our friends every night. They absolutely loved it. My three year old was asking to go to the club everyday last week after we were home. They have so many activities with the kids and so many cool rooms, like Pixie Hollow, where Tinkerbell lives and Andy's room from Toy Story.
Finally the highlight for DH and me was seeing their faces when they met Ariel and Tinkerbell. I felt like I was a kid again. We took them to Disney World two years ago, but this cruise, our first cruise ever, seemed to have everything we all wanted and needed on vacation. Rest, relaxation, kids club, character meetings, nights out without the girls, time with our friends, and family adventures to new places in Mexico, Grand Cayman Island, and Disney 's Castaway Cay, Bahamas. It was so much fun!
Meeting Ariel. My daughters' favorite princess.
Dinner at Animator's Palate where you get to draw your own character and they create a cartoon animation with it on the TV screens. Really cool!
With our friends at dinner.
Looking forward to the next cruise. Already booked for next year!
