Glimpse of the Disney Wonder as we arrived at the Port of Miami.
It was great arriving early as we were able to check in, register Hannah for the Oceaneer’s Club, meet Mickey and wait (im)patiently for the approval to board!
Around noon the announcement was made that boarding could commence. Woo hoo!!! Goosebumps!!
then made our way to our lifeboat drill.
After the drill it was time for the All Aboard show and to wave to family and friends watching our ship leave port via the port webcam…far, far away. The Port of Miami webcams don’t get very close but we still had fun waving. Papa got his Mickey groove on!
After the show it was time to change and head to our first dinner. Disney cruising offers something unique to cruising in the form of rotational dining. We always sat at the same table number and had the same great servers but we rotated between 3 different restaurants throughout the cruise. This night and our final night we were at ' target=_blank>Animator’s Palate. It was neat as the restaurant (and server Beata’s clothing) starting the evening in black and white
and then everything transformed as the evening progressed.
Dinner was followed by a welcome show in the Walt Disney Theater and then a first glimpse at the shops onboard where we bumped into our friends Liz and Ava who were also sailing on the same cruise. Such cute little sailors!
Good night! It was time to turn in and be gently rocked to sleep by the sway of the ship. I could get used to this!! Yo ho, yo ho a sailor’s life for me!!
