My husband and I enjoyed our first Disney Cruise!
(Saying “first” because we plan on going again – it was so marvelous).
If you know me, you know I hate cold weather. I can’t stand it.
So being on a Disney cruise in the middle of January was a dream come true.
The 5-night Western Caribbean cruise (Ship : Magic) was a perfect Christmas gift from my husband. I had never experienced a Disney cruise before, and we (mostly just me) were excited to escape the gray, cold winter and bask in the sun in the middle of the glistening ocean!
We traveled to Cozumel Mexico then sailed away to Castaway Cay (Disney’s private island). We also spent two fun-filled days at sea enjoying shows, musicals, trivia, bingo, movie theatre, spa, adult-only pool, and nightclubs.
We were thrilled to find plenty of activities for adults-only, (especially for Disney-lovers traveling without children!) To be quite honest, I’m convinced adults have more fun than the kids on a Disney cruise!
Other than a few nights of rocky waters (which resulted in a little bit of sea sickness), everything was perfect – including the weather, food, and even Disney Cruise Line (DCL) cast members.
One of our favorite aspects of the cruise was meeting DCL cast members from around the world. Each one we met was friendly, energetic, and happy to answer any questions we had about cruise activities or port excursions.
While we loved so many experiences on our cruise, the highlights were:
– Watching fireworks at sea on Pirate Night
– Relaxing at the spa’s Couple Villa
– Snorkeling in Cozumel
– Eating (pretty much all the time)
– Irish dancing at the ship’s pub
– Seeing the shows (specifically the magic/comedy shows)
– Laying out by Quiet Cove (adult-only pool)
More specific blog posts coming soon (spa, pirate night, adult activities, etc.) But for now… here are some photos and a fun video of our wonderful cruise! Enjoy!
