1. Disney Dream Halloween on the High Seas Cruise: Day Four – At Sea

    Once again after not enough sleep, I woke up early about 06:30am. I wish I could have slept in later as I knew that the following morning when we disembarked would be another early start. Today was our last full day onboard and we were going to be at sea for the whole day. A better description would be that we were going to floating around like a cork with minimal engine power close to Freeport for the majority of the day before finally heading back towards Port Canaveral in the evening.

  2. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Ten – At Sea

    I woke up once again very early on what was to be our final day at sea. The first thing that was immediately noticeable when going out onto our verandah was how humid it was outside – a clear sign that we were getting closer to the Bahamas and Florida. We decided to go to Lumiere’s as it would be our last chance to have breakfast there since we would be arriving at Castaway Cay the next day and would only want something quick to eat before disembarking.

  3. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Nine – At Sea

    It was once again another early start as I woke up at 5:30am. Thankfully I was able to fall back asleep after a little while and when I woke up again, it was 8:30am – much better as it was due to be a long day as the Pirates in the Caribbean fireworks would be happening in the evening. When I went out to our balcony, it was grey and miserable outside and for the first time this cruise, it started to rain. (more…)

  4. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Eight – At Sea

    Once again I was awake at 6:30am so instead of trying to go back to sleep, I decided to go for a walk around Deck 10. What I was not expecting to see at this time was people already saving sun loungers around the Cove Pool. I knew that we kept on seeing the same people frying themselves redder and redder every day but this was ridiculous. (more…)

  5. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Seven – At Sea

    Every day on this cruise, I was waking up earlier and earlier – a side effect of having twenty five hour days. I’m not complaining though as I do not want to begin to imagine how much more difficult the Eastbound Transatlantic cruises are when you lose an hour each day. There was no chance of me falling back asleep so after looking out of the window and seeing the start of a beautiful sunrise, I pulled my hoody on over my pyjamas, grabbed my camera and headed up to Deck 10.

  6. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Five – At Sea

    I am not a morning person in general and usually need to set at least several alarm clocks when I have an early start so the fact that I was waking up every day before 7:00am before the alarm went off was really confusing my brain. I definitely was not complaining though as I would much rather have the twenty five hour days that the Westbound Transatlantic cruises have any day over the twenty three hour days in the other direction.

  7. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Three – At Sea

    On this morning I woke up after an amazing sleep and feeling incredibly grateful for that extra hour in bed due to the first of many time changes of the cruise. Thankfully and much to my relief, I was still okay after feeling unwell the previous day. As our Character Breakfast wasn’t due to start until 9:00am, it felt great just to be able to take it easy and chill in the room until we needed to get ready. (more…)

  8. Disney Magic Transatlantic Cruise: Day Two – At Sea

    After what I thought had been a good night’s sleep I woke up when the telephone in our room rang to let us know that our room service breakfast was on the way. The only problem was it felt like I had had no sleep and I was feeling absolutely terrible. (more…)

  9. Disney Wonder to Alaska: Day Seven – At Sea

    After another good night’s sleep we woke up to what would be our last full day onboard the Disney Wonder. We were due to be at sea all day before arriving back into Vancouver the following morning. After getting dressed we headed to a very empty Triton’s for breakfast. (more…)
