Sep 18, 2015 - Disney Cruise

Well we have had an amazing cruise. It far exceeded our expectations. We visited Saint Maaren, St Thomas and Castaway Cay (Disney's private island). We spent 7 days on Disney's Fantasy. We were served some amazing food, and enjoyed some great shows and entertainment of this floating 5 star resort. We saw planes take of and land at the incredible Maho beach. Saint Maarten is the smallest island that is occupied by two countries. The French side seemed to be more strict and serious, and the Dutch side more easy going. The difference between...

Nov 19, 2008 - Our Day at Sea

We had a relaxing day at sea, just sitting by the pool, and I got caught up on my reading. Joe missed having a casino on board, I think, as the day at sea would have been when he would have gone to play poker.

There are bicycles for hire, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and nature trails. It was truly beautiful with the turquoise water,...

Nov 6, 2007 - Pirates of the Caribbean

Thankfully today was wonderfully calm. Castaway Cay was perfect for swimming, sunning, snorkeling, and sand-castle building. Jessie and I had a lovely time snorkeling. I think we found most of Disney's underwater surprises, as well as a few exotic looking fish. Relaxation was the word of the day. We finally ambled back to the ship to don our Halloween costumes, to transform into the Saunders Scaliwags, the most fearful band of pirates ever to be seen. I felt especially authentic with sun-kissed cheeks, sandy skin, and salty windblown hair....
