disney cruise: Day 1 embarkation

May 17th

Saturday dawned bright and early suprisingly enough as i had spent an amazingly long night at a Cher concert.


Flying Cher


cher was amazing, it was my first concert and i had the best time.



saturday consisted of last minute getting ready which took a lot longer than i wanted so i was getting pretty grumpy by the time we finally met up with Michael and got on the way to the port.

once we arrived at port canaveral we got all of our stuff  out of the van, and christopher had his big suitcase sent to the room because its wheels were broken and it was  full size suitcase. the rest of us (katherine, micheal, and I) gather our stuff and went through security and up into th line to check into our 7 day cruise!


I have been waiting for this day for years/months! and finally we were there, checking in to our adjoining staterooms on the Disney Fantasy for a 7 day eastern caribbean cruise. nothing but luxury and disney trivia ahead of e for days and days.

After arriving in the stateroom and getting our selves sorted with our new quarters:






After getting ourelves situated we started to roam around the ship that we would call home for a week.

We stopped by Cabanas on the 11th deck which we discovered has an amazing seafood buffett which we all stuffed ourselves with.

We then explored the ship for a few hours till it was time to pretty ourselves up for dinner at palo.

we gorged outselves on plates and plates of rich and delicious food for over 2 hours. the somalier talked us into buying 2 bottles of wine for the table, and our server plied me with as much prosciutto as my heart desired.

we had planned an evening of fun and roaming the ship after dinner but i had started to feel ill and mostly food coma, so we all went to bed to sleep off the amazing food we had all eaten.


that ends day one of  my disney cruise





7 days to go


Woot 7 days to go !!!!!

Katherine and I went shopping and I now am the proud owner of a dress, some shorts , bathing suit and down spanx. All I need now is some alcohol, and some new shoes and I’ll be ready for cruising.


I have been practicing my Princess hair , I have gotten some cute fake eyelashes and some glitter hair spray as well ….. Now I just need to figure out which Princess I’m going to be, and a costume for pirate night.


so I have booked 2 staterooms, they are deluxe ocean view verandah rooms, we have linked our reservations together so currently they have is in staterooms side by side with an adjoining verandah. We hope we can open this and just have a giant open deck.






So as you can see we have booked the adults only restaurant PALO for dinner on the first night, this was due to availability, the thing with the Disney cast discount is that it only comes out like 2 weeks in advance so most things are booked up.

We also have a tour booked on St Maarten which I’m quite excited for.

I’ve been doing a lot of research ( meaning YouTube videos and blogs) about the Disney fantasy and the caribbean cruises they do and they all look amazing !!

We have completed our online check in we filled in all of our information and passports and credit cards and we are ready to be off to wonderland at practically a moments notice 🙂
