Disney Cruise Line

Both Steve and I talked about our various trips aboard the Disney Cruise Line.  Two years ago, the Disney Wonder took me and my family from Vancouver, Canada up to Alaska.  It truly was a terrific trip.  Now, we are looking to book a future trip on the Disney Cruise Line to the Caribbean.

Below are just a few photos from our adventure.  As always, click each image to see it full size.  And check back from time to time … there’s a good chance that I might add some pictures to further showcase all there is to do on a Disney Cruise.

The 8 days we spent cruising went by probably faster than any week I’ve ever experienced.  There is so much to do aboard the ship and for excursions at each port of call, the toughest part is making sure to find time to sit and relax for a bit.  If you haven’t yet experienced the pleasure of a trip on the Disney Cruise Line, I highly recommend it!
