There are a few advantages to living in Orlando, Florida, and the first is that we are about 45 minutes from Port Canaveral. We saved and saved *the Dave Ramsey way* until we were able to book our very first cruise! We absolutely loved this trip and are already saving for our next one, because let’s just face it, being out in the middle of the ocean at Sunset on the top deck of the Disney Wonder is just about as good as it gets!
It was hard for all of us to leave our sweet Lydia with friends for the weekend, but we all doubted that she would be able to relax like we wanted to be able to relax. *It’s so hard being barely 3!*
Arrrgh!!!! Pirates night with the kids was such a blast…the ship held a party on the top deck, and as if Mickey Mouse flying across the top of our heads on a zip line wasn’t enough,they finished the party off with a spectacular fireworks show! Who can do it better than Disney?
Our favorite part aside from the endless amounts of food and the most fabulous shows ever, was our time spent on Castaway Cay, which is Disney’s private island. Andy, my dear hubby, took the boys snorkling. It was January so the weather was absolutely perfect at about 82 degrees, but the water was a little chilly so I declined the offer to join them.
This would be The Flying Dutchman…and I can’t even tell you how impressed my 9 and 7 year old boys were with it.
