We didn't take many pictures at all this Christmas.

Our last stop was Disney’s private
island. It did not disappoint! They rotate the cruises so there’s one cruise
ship there per day, and almost all the staff is from the boat. There’s only a
handful of people who come over from South Abaco island every day to help, the
rest are different every day depending on what ship is there. All the food
supplies, towels, etc. and brought off the boat and then put back on at the end
of the day.

Jamaica was our most adventurous port
day. We took a shuttle to a place called Misty Mountain Resort where we rode a
sky ride (ski lift-type) up to the top of a mountain. The line to get on the
sky ride was in a cool jungle-y area with lots of mist and crazy-looking spider
In the second video, you can see Rob going over part of the bobsled track.

Our next stop was Grand Cayman Island.
We took a shuttle to a turtle farm where we got to see huge sea turtles and
hold baby turtles. When you hold a turtle, it will slap the heck out of you
with its flippers unless you rub its tummy.

Our first stop was Cozumel, Mexico.

We didn’t spend much time in port, but we rode a very bumpy boat out to a submarine dock and then took a submarine tour. Here’s the sub above surface.

Our first cruise was on the Disney
Wonder, and this time we went on the Disney Fantasy. The Fantasy is bigger than
the Wonder, and we could tell the difference in the crowds. Both ships are
really nice, but we prefer the smaller one. They have a lot of the same features,
and similar restaurants.
We didn’t take very many pictures in our room, but it was very similar to the room on our last cruise. Here are the kids after their beds were all made up on the first night.
The entertainment crew was very friendly and would joke around with everyone between shows. This guy Brett always had the craziest socks.
Our servers had a trainee shadowing them, so we go to have three. They kept saying she was “earning her ears”, so on the last day, Rob gave her a set of ears and we made a big deal about her graduating from her training.
Robbie had a sweet beard and drawn-on earring.

We went on our second Disney cruise.
This time, we flew to Florida and stayed at Cocoa Beach before going to the
cruise terminal in Orlando. This was Robbie’s first time flying and Erin’s
first time that she was old enough to remember.
The cruise terminal was very crowded, so we spent a lot of time outside looking at the ship. We ordered matching t-shirts for the trip…
They were already starting to decorate for Christmas!
This is the gangway leading from the terminal to the ship.
It started to rain on us just as the sail away party was beginning, so we went inside and watched the ASU/Notre Dame game on one of the big screens.
