Trip Report We finally made up our minds...

Jump to last reply

After a very convoluted decision process involving choosing between at least four ports, six lines, and who knows how many destinations, we (myself, DH, and DS20) finally booked a three-day on Disney out of Port Canaveral. I got a fairly decent price, and we are in an outside on a lower deck for about what two insides or one junior suite would have run us on Carnival for a similar itinerary. That said, the Disney cabin appears to be large, well appointed, and more to the point, set up so the third passenger isn't sleeping over anyone's head, and with a privacy curtain so people don't have to get dressed in the bathroom.

DH is tickled that they have no formal night, DS is looking forward to the pirate night, and we all like Disney. A lot. We'll see how Disney cruising goes. We had held off for a while at least partly because DS wanted to be old enough for the adult areas (why hang out with other teenagers when you can be in a lounge chair next to mom and dad with a book and a virgin daiquiri and a couple of snacks?). We had also held off on Disney because we don't usually feel like paying for it, but the stars aligned on this one.

I still haven't booked anything pre-cruise (more reports to come) but we have (after more convoluted decision making that had us potentially all over most of the peninsula) decided on Vero beach post-cruise, with one night at Holiday Inn Oceanside, and one night at Disney Vero Beach (because that was what we really wanted, but I couldn't justify paying for two nights).

Our Nassau plans are still a little nebulous, but they'll likely involve either the pirate museum or the fish at Atlantis. Castaway Cay is obviously a beach. DS is considering doing their bottom fishing expedition if he has enough money saved.

More to come...
