It was all that we expected it to be fun, great food, beautiful weather, and absolutely relaxing. Honestly it was the first vacation that I didn't have to worry about anything - and that is wonderful!
We sailed on the Disney Dream out of Port Canaveral Florida on a four night Bahama getaway.
|This was the tiny ship next to ours|
|This is what you see when you first walk on the ship|
|Almost at eye level - yes I was obsessed with this|
|The expensive side of the island|
|motoring past our ship o' dreams|
|we did see some fish - but it was through this green glass stuff|
|These things were huge!|
We also got to watch fireworks at sea (the ONLY cruise ship allowed to have fireworks!). And, I learned from my son (who learned in his tween club onboard) they are plant based so they are environmentally safe. Pretty cool.
Erik and I got to watch a couple stage shows, which were awesome. Very well done productions. And we all watched Wreck it Ralph in 3D. In an almost empty theater. Awesome. This is the theater.
The food was incredible. The only restaurant I remembered to bring my camera to was The Artists Palette. And I still didn't take any food pictures. But here's the bread plate and knife
And my boys enjoying dinner. Bonus - Zach tried a lot of knew food while we were on the cruise. Anyone who knows us knows this is a huge deal.
|No, the french fries weren't the 'new' food|
We also got fun towel folding critters every night. I only thought to capture this one though
And our room hostess was so awesome. She was super friendly and even remembered to tuck Zach's friends in when she turned down our beds at night.
We had such a great time. We are already planning our next trip - but this time we're doing a 7 day cruise! And now for some random family shots:
A great way to start the summer and an awesome way to celebrate Erik's retiring from the AF.
