This is me and our friend, Jen, who cruised with us.
I didn't know what I would think of cruising but honestly, I LOVED it. It was like all the adventures of a road trip without having to make all the decisions about where to eat and when to stop for night, and without all the driving. We enjoyed discovering a new place every day and Sam, especially, loved the freedom of the ship.
It was the perfect Disney experience for us because we got to meet all the characters without having to deal with insane crowds, without needing to ride the rides (because why else are you paying the park admission?), and we were able to take some downtime whenever we wanted.
I would LOVE to go again. Next time I'd like to do a longer cruise (this one felt a little short) and have some "at sea" days to enjoy the ship a little more. The kids want to spend some more time in the kids' clubs and I want some time to relax on a beach chair and read.
So if you're wondering what I'm doing in my free time over the next few months, I'm cruising (see what I did there?!?) the Disney website and dreaming about our next adventure. Ha! Dave wishes I was joking about that :)
