Past Cruises

Disney Fantasy

November 2019 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Fantasy

Our Grandslam Cruise on the Fantasy!

This was our grandslam cruise with Disney having been on all the ships. We still call the Wonder our home ship but the Fantasy is larger, has more amenities, and 10/10 customer service. Every staff member that makes eye contact greets you, the entertainment director walked around after shows meeting people, the characters randomly walk around the ship making for fun, impromptu meets, and the food was very good. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

February 2019 - 4 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Magic

Best of the Bahamas

This trip was a 40th Birthday gift to my beautiful wife and our first vacation without our daughter (ever!). We were a little hesitant about whether we would be able to relax or not but after the first night we were in full vacation mode. In fact, we wish we would have been able to do a full 7 nighter! At any rate, we were plenty busy when the ship was at port and we spent a lot of time with our new table friends. I highly recommend the 4 night Disney cruises to anyone new to cruising or pinched for time.

Disney Wonder

December 2017 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Wonder

We just had another great cruise on the Disney Wonder in the Western Caribbean. The food quality was excellent and our steward Darcy and our servers Yayan and Rallie were great. The Wonder is our favorite Disney ship and we’ll be back soon!

Cruise Tips

Port Canaveral, Florida

Clean and easy to navigate but not much to do the night before. We ended up walking to the port, watching the Dream take off, and eating at Grills.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Our excursion to the Baths was cancelled due to high winds. We were gutted but did a walking tour and found some cool cultural things to enjoy. Also did some watch shopping and found the dealers eager to discount!

Get room service at least one day at sea. It's a great way to start a day of relaxing. When we go out to breakfast, we tend to skip the buffet and go for either Daisy's Delites or at a sit down breakfast.

Nassau, Bahamas

Plenty of things to do and see in Nassau. When we visited in 2013, we only did shopping and ate downtown. Based on that visit I would have only given Nassau 3 stars. However, this trip we ventured out and did the Junkanoo museum, forts, Queen's stair, and then after the excursion walked to Watling's Distillery. We saw a lot of stray dogs that we steered clear of but otherwise didn't have any issues as far as safety is concerned.

Miami, Florida

We enjoyed the immediate port area but due to the weather we didn't get to go to South Beach or do much shopping. Still the mall near the port hotels was nice and had plenty of good food and drink options. Wish we had more time but maybe next time.

Key West, Florida

Walked around Key West and saw a TON. It is such a beautiful town that we'd love to spend a full week there. The architecture, colors, foods, and drinks are all amazing as is the history. We liked Hemingway's house and the Little White House tours. Cuban coffee and frozen key lime pie were delicious!

Key West, Florida

We got off the Dis Magic early, hit the Southernmost point, got Cuban coffees, explored neighborhoods, did Hemingway’s house, ate at Sloppy Joe’s, did the Little White House, and finally hit Duval street. We loved the history, architecture, chickens, and the Cathedral Basilica. We ended up walking about 9 miles but we were able to see a lot. Highly recommend it!
