[Day 2] Navigator of the Seas - At Sea
Our first true day on the ship was a sea day - perfect for sleeping in and not really doing anything!  To our surprise, our father did not call and try to wake us up.  We found out a few days later that the ringer on our phone was muted, so he actually migh...

Last time we sailed on Disney, Rachel was the only member of the family to dress up for Pirate Night .  When reading my cruise blog, Rachel reminded me that one of my "wish I dids" was dress up for Pirate Night .  So naturally, this year, we went all-out. W...

[Day 4 | Part 1] Double-Dip at Castaway Cay
Back at it with another day at Castaway Cay.  A big incentive to book this cruise was that it included two stops at Castaway Cay, our favorite private island.  I've gushed about it before, but Castaway Cay is truly a large step above any other cruise line o...

[Day 3] Princesses and Palo Brunch
This morning we arrived in Nassau.  However, we decided to treat today like a sea day and not get off the ship.  We've been to Nassau many times, and it's not our favorite port of call.  The public beaches are no match for those of Castaway Cay, and the pri...

[Day 2 | Part 2] Serenity Bay and Afternoon Rain
Rachel and I rinsed off and got ready for the beach, then we headed back out to Castaway Cay. In case you forgot, it's still beautiful. When you're getting off the ship, they have an area where they are passing out towels, selling bottles of water, and also...

[Day 2 | Part 1] Castaway Cay 5K
Rachel and I had signed up at Guest Services to run the Castaway Cay 5K. We had done this before, so we knew what we were getting ourselves into, but they've since upgraded the medal from a generic Mickey cruise medal to a themed Castaway Cay 5K medal (rub...

[Day 1] Disney Dream - Sail Away!
We flew/drove in the day before and stayed at the Fairfield at MCO the night before the cruise.  This trip begins how they normally do - with me scrambling to get to the airport.  This time I was confused and thought my flight left an hour later... only to ...

Fourth of July on the Disney Dream!
Hey, guys - long time no see!  Now that I'm done with grad school (woohoo), I can finally resurrect Victoria on Vacation! And what better way to start than with a trip report of our 5-night cruise on the Disney Dream?! We booked this cruise very last-minute...

[Day 09] River Rafting in Puntarenas, Costa Rica
We arrived Christmas morning in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Puntarenas is on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, very far south. We'd visited Costa Rica before on our Panama Canal partial transit cruise at Limon on the Caribbean coast. If you read my Panama Canal ...
