Wow - what can say about the Disney experience! It was truly amazing and now has my family hooked on cruising. We sailed on the 4 day Wonder to Nassau, Castaway Cay and a day at sea.
Let's start with embarkation - how slick it was, was amazing. We arrived at the Port at 10:30 a.m. and were allowed into the terminal at 11:00. We went straight to the Non US citizen line and had no wait at all, in the mean time my 4 kids settled into large, comfy chairs and watched Disney movies.
About 12:30 they allowed to board the ship and each family's name was called out as they entered the ship and were cheered on by the crew (made my kids day!). We had the buffett lunch and then proceeded to our staterooms.
Now I was not sure what to expect - after all it is a ship and they cram so many people into it - but we were amazed at the room. We had connecting Cat 9 rooms, so we had 2 shower rooms and 2 bathrooms! 2 king sized bed, 2 single beds and 2 beds that came out of the ceiling (do not know the proper name for them!) We had a huge port hole in each room also.
Meals - they were fantastic! On the Disney cruise ships you keep your servers for the entire duration of the cruise and they follow you to each restaurant for dinner. This is great and my kids loved our servers - they played games with them, knew them by name even when we saw them at other areas of the ship. They had there drinks waiting for us when we sat down to eat and by the end of the cruise knew our likes and dislikes and would bring us extra plates of what we liked.
The shows were excellent and the kids even liked going to the movie theater every night to watch the newly released movies they were showing.
Disembarkation was also a breeze - except for clearing customs! Way too early in the morning for my liking! But I guess it has to be done! We were allowed off the ship at 8:00 a.m. and all of our luggage was color coded to our stateroom so we just went to the Purple areas and found out stateroom group and there sat all of our luggage!
This was the most amazing, enjoyable, relaxing (yet tiring) vacation! We just loved cruising and the kids can't wait to sail on the Disney Magic next!
