We boarded the Disney Fantasy at Port Canaveral, Florida, ready for a week of fun, food, exotic locales and great shows. Disney didn't disappoint us, almost. But more on that later.
Walking through the mouse head entry portal,
We were greeted by Minnie.
She was standing in the amazing atrium, where this magnificent, color changing chandelier hung from the ceiling.
Since it was lunchtime, we headed to the stern of the ship for the buffet, called Cabanas.
Yes they do serve shrimp here, all you can possibly eat!
As well as mussels and crab claws, too.
Being we hadn't had lunch, we dug right in, well Marti passed on the seafood because she's allergic to all kinds of fish and shellfish. But don't worry, she didn't go hungry, there is always plenty of other delicious delights to choose from.
After an incredible lunch, we were able to check out our stateroom. We always get a veranda room, so we can enjoy the views wherever the ship takes us.
Right across the harbor were some of my old friends. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss them, though.
After a short emergency drill where we were shown how to put on a life jacket, we were ready to get underway.
As we headed out the channel to sea, we passed a nice campground along the way. Lots of people came out to wave at us. I included this picture because this is supposed to be an RV blog, after all.
Say, isn't a cruise ship a recreational vehicle (vessel)?
We're often asked since the Disney ships are geared towards families, don't all the children bother you? First of all, it is so nice to see families together having fun, like at the main pool deck,
but there are plenty of nice, quiet areas just for adults, with their own pools, bars and hot tubs. Yep, I got quite a few hours spent enjoying the hot tub.
We even enjoyed spending time in lounge chairs out on some of the decks reading our kindles, where very few people went.
Under way we went towards the Eastern Caribbean. First stop, Tortolla, in the British Virgin Islands.
