On embarkation day, I was so excited that I was up before my alarm. (Anyone who knows me, and my level of sleep deprivation, understands how excited I was.) Once everyone was up and ready, we loaded up the cars to head to the port. It is amazing how much stuff we had.
The weather had been gross during the week leading up to the cruise and it was super foggy on our way out to port. You couldn't even see the ship when we were pulling in to unload and park. The check in process went smoothly and we were one of the first groups allowed to board the ship.
Once on board we got tickets for the Disney Junior Breakfast, Elsa and Anna and the Disney Princess meet and greet. We also made reservations for a couples session at the spa. (This was sold out in pre-booking, so I was super excited they still had availability.) After all that, it was time for lunch and then our rooms were ready.
That evening was the sail away party and E's first chance to dance on the deck. Dancing would be a theme for E this sailing. After the party it was time for dinner and then bedtime for E.
|Bye, Bye FL|
|She wasn't real sure about Doc|
|Holding tight to Daddy|
|She did give Cinderella (her favorite) a hug.|
|Finally a little sun!|
|Waiting for Aladdin! (Notice the no shoes, |
this was a common theme.)
|A boat in the rain|
|Getting my tourist on|
Day three was Grand Cayman. We didn't get into port until late, so I took a spin class before we left the ship. It was a good time and one of the hardest spin classes I have taken. The sensation of biking on a moving ship is an interesting one. (So thankful I don't have motion sickness issues.)
|Cruising is hard work!|
After getting cleaned up, it was time for dinner and then dancing toddler style. The theme was princess night and E was all about wearing her Cinderella dress.
E went to bed and we hung out on our veranda. (The veranda room was really nice because we could sit and chat while E was inside sleeping.)
