The day had finally come! The day we embarked on the Disney Fantasy Cruise Line, for an Eastern Caribbean cruise! We had been preparing for this for over a year for my niece’s graduation.
(We had rented a car through Hertz from MCO, and returned it the night prior to leaving for the cruise. Hertz was right in the parking lot of our hotel. My husband spoke with them when returning the car and explained we were going on the cruise in the morning. They told him we could come back and take the shuttle the morning of the cruise.)
Here we are at Hertz waiting for the shuttle to the port.
And here we are with the rest of our travel party! They had rented cars from another place, so we just met once inside the terminal.
Priority upon embarking for our family:
- Head straight up to the pool deck and secure some seats near the pool.
- Ride the Aquaduck.
- Eat some lunch.
- Head to Palo to secure brunch if unable prior.
- 1:30 p.m. Head to our cabin to drop off carry ons and unpack a little bit.
- Go to the DVC Member party.
- Go to the Facebook meet up.
- Check out kid club open houses.
- Head to the sail away party.
Here is a tour of our Stateroom #2550 which is a Deluxe Oceanview:
(I forgot to snap a picture, but the couch flips down to a twin sized bed and the other bed comes down from the ceiling.)
These extra goodies can be ordered through DCL, except for the sling bag. That is a gift from DCL for returning cruisers. The owner of my travel agency, Mad Hatter Adventures, had sent us these goodies!
After checking out our room, we went to the DVC Member party. They usually have a character of some sort, and this time it was Princess Tiana!
One plus is you get a free drink and some bottled water.
The spillway party is always fun! We go to deck 12 so we can look down on the party and also look over the railing as we are sailing out.
The DCL terminal.
This area is full of restaurants! We ate here the night before sailing.
More to come!
