Wordful Wednesday – Cruising on Disney Wonder

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

Remember that I mentioned last week that we went on a family vacation that allowed us to unplug for a whole week and it was wonderful?  We’ll, part of the vacation was on our first cruise, and it was on the Disney Wonder.  We flew to Florida and cruised to Grand Cayman and Cozumel before heading back to Miami.  It was wonderful to get away, although I’m not positive that cruising is our families favorite way to vacation.  I’m just not a breakfast and lunch buffet type of girl, and Jeff is not a big lover of crowds at the pool.  That being said, the ship was beautiful and the rooms were roomy and always clean, and we had a great time.  The entertainment was great, too.

We had an adventure on the high seas when we picked up Cuban refugees.  For real.

Disney has some European vacations that look really interesting.  I’d love to give one of  those a try……..

  1. It looks magical like all things Disney, but I’m with you. I don’t think it would be my favorite. Crowded, buffets and most importantly, moving all the time, would be too much for me, I think.

    Cuban refugees???? LOL. I know I shouldn’t laugh, but that’s so far out of my reality I just can’t even picture it!
    I bet they were stoked to see a buffet! I do hope they let them eat. Did you all stay in one room. When I looked up cruises last year, we would have to pay for 2 rooms. Bummer.
    Love the boys in their fedora’s!

  3. That’s the biggest pet peeve the hubby had when I finally talked him into going on a cruise – the crowds, and the schedules. And like you, I’m not a buffet kinda girl, either. 🙂 We both prefer all-inclusive resorts – though I would love to go on one Disney cruise just for the memories. 😉 Love all the shots! 🙂

  4. That looks like SO much fun! The sunset pic is gorgeous.

  5. My husband and I adored being on a cruise, but we’ve never done it with our kids…and at this rate, they’ll all be adults by the time we have the chance. 😉

  6. OK Confession…. I haven’t been to anything Disney other than a movie. A cruise yes, but not Disney. Great photos. What a view!

  7. First Sanibel and then a Disney Cruise? What an amazing experience for your children! The Disney Cruises are supposed to be top-notch affair.

  8. I’ll admit, we are fans of cruising, particularly Disney as there so so much to do or not do…but I’m with you on the buffet, which is why we did the dining room for breakfast most mornings. If you can do a Med cruise, do…your hubby can skip the pool for med beaches (don’t go in June). The lounge chair thing is a peeve I have with any cruise line but I find the same issue at a lot of resorts.

    • I actually think the chair issue is worse at resorts. People wake up at 6 in the morning and “stake” out their chair for the day. At least on the cruise people vacated the chairs when they were done.

  9. I have always wanted to go on a cruise but my husband is terrified. He can’t swim. And I may or may not have told him that I would throw him overboard.

  10. looks so fun. i want to go on another cruise so bad…
    question.. how did yall do with such a large family?
    (that is one thing that has held me back… obviously if we did a cruise, we would take my stepsons… so that would put us with 4 kids… would love any insight on that!)

  11. Thank you, Thank you for linking back to me! =)

    A Disney cruise looks so amazing! A friend of mine who loves all things Disney has been on three different Disney cruises and she loves them (and she doesn’t even have kids! Though maybe that added to her great experiences…)

  12. A Disney cruise has always been on my really want to do it list and chances are that is where it will stay!

    I’m glad that you had a great time… love the self serve frozen yogurt!

  13. I had always wanted to go on a cruise, so my hubs took me on one, pre-kids. All he wanted to do was play Bingo–and we were only like 29 at the time. I told him next time I was bringing some girlfriends along, too. Haha

  14. I’ve only been on one cruise- it was for our honeymoon, 10 years ago. We enjoyed it and I’d love to try a Disney cruise with the kids. I figure anywhere we’d head with the kids would probably end up with crowds anyway. 😉
