We love the Disney Cruise and had sailed on one of the Disney ships every year since 2006 with only a few exceptions. On our most recent cruise in 2015, we were disappointed because the rough sea forced the ship to miss ports at both Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay, severely affecting the trip. But the allure of the cruise was too great for us and we decided that for Christmas 2016 we would surprise the kids with a Disney Cruise on the Disney Fantasy in January 2017.
Brooke planned, prepped and procured the matching outfits for the cruise as the arrival date approached. She got us all packed and we made the drive over to Port Canaveral to board the Disney Fantasy on January 21, 2017. It was non-stop, a true whirlwind experience, and we got to do it all. Besides again missing the port in Grand Cayman due to rough seas (though this unexpected day at sea was one of our favorites), everything was better than expected and remembered. Check out the details of our trip by reading through the daily logs below.
