It's Been 12 Months Since My Last Cruise

"It's been 12 months since my last cruise," I said whiningly to the husband over breakfast this morning. Maybe it is post holiday blues, as the presents are all opened, food all cooked, and guests all gone to their respective homes. Nothing left to do but clean, eat the leftovers, and put the trash out. Maybe it’s that one year ago today we were stepping onto the Disney Magic for a 7 night Western Caribbean itinerary and as I look at the six inches of snow outside I’m longing for a bit of warm Caribbean sunshine. Maybe I just like to whine. Nah, couldn’t be that!

So now that I have whined, now what? Well, the official countdown to our next cruise has begun—an anniversary cruise aboard the Disney Dream. We pour over the Disney Parks Blog looking for videos and sneak peeks of the new ship. We check out the deck plans of the new ship on the Disney Cruise Line web-site so that we know where everything is located.

Since we are combing our cruise with a “land” stay, I have printed out the park hours for July, as we can begin to make our dining reservations in just a few days. We decided, while completing the weekly task of changing the sheets on the beds, that the Crystal Palace is going to be one of our stops this next trip. And, we are thinking about trying a new resort—Port Orleans French Quarter. Rumor on the web indicates a refurbishment between now and our stay featuring the installation of Queen sized beds. Yeah!

We are waiting for the 2011 PassPorter’s Guide to Walt Disney World to be released, as we have already ordered it at our local bookstore. Then we wait for the new cruise guides featuring the Dream, which I’m guessing will be published soon after its maiden voyage on January 26, 2011.

Here’s to wishing that all your Disney Dreams do come true!
