Catching Up: Our Cruise, Part Two
We spent our third day at Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. Castaway Cay is paradise! The only people who visit the island are guests of the Disney ships, so the island is beautifully maintained and a wonderful place to spend a relaxing day. I tried to talk my husband into parasailing with me, but he's not a risk-taker, and he never gave in to my pleading. My Best Girl has already agreed to try it with me when we go as a family, so I am looking forward to that! We spent the day relaxing in beach chairs and lying in hammocks. Resting and reading all day--a dream way to spend the day for me!






That night was Pirate Night, which included fireworks at sea and a dessert buffet.  We also saw the new movie Chimpanzee, which was very cute. 



Mickey came in on a zip line before the fireworks.

On our fourth day, we spent the day at sea.  I spent much of the time in this chair reading.  Ahhhhh...


Before dinner, we saw the final show and enjoyed the sunset.  My Best Girl's Flat Stanley enjoyed the view as well.


After our dinner, there was a farewell show with the characters.  I managed to snag a picture with Donald (my Favorite Boy is a big fan), and Flat Stanley got one with Mickey.



When we woke up on Friday morning, we were so sad to leave such a relaxing and rejuvenating trip behind, but we were excited to see the kids.  Grammy, Papa, and Grandma took good care of them for us!  We can't wait to take the kids on a cruise in December.  Although we didn't do many of the scheduled activities, there were fun things going on all day long--the kids are going to have a ball! For those of you wondering, there were quite a few couples without kids onboard.  One thing you can count on with Disney is quality service.  No one will force Mickey on you, but knowing that the crew will go above and beyond to be sure that you have a wonderful trip is worth sticking with the Disney brand in our minds.  Our lifestyle is more in line with the family crowd anyway, so the ship's environment was a plus for us.  It was fabulous trip!

Sounds like a great trip! I'm hoping to convince Matt to do a Disney cruise sometime (with or without kids).
