Disney Dream Christmas Cruise 2019 - Castaway Cay with Grandma Alice and Grandpa Rick




On December 20th, we set sail on the Disney Dream for a Christmas cruise with Grandma Alice and Grandpa Rick. When we first arrived, we boarded the boat and had some lunch. The kids had been encouraged to try seafood on this trip and they both ate some shrimp at lunch. They didn't care for it, but I was proud of them for giving it a try.


We got some ice cream at Vanellope's for the girls and soon after our rooms were ready and we unpacked and went through the evacuation drill.



In the afternoon we solved some mysteries, showed Grandma and Grandpa the kids' area and then ate dinner.





We skipped the show on the first night and instead we watched Frozen 2 and afterwards Grandpa and I stayed up late and watched the new Star Wars movie.

On Saturday morning we got up a little early to see Santa and then we went to the Princess gathering.

















The boat was at Castaway Cay on Saturday and it was the first time we decided not to bother getting off for the day. The boat was quiet, so it was a nice opportunity to ride the Aquaduck and to relax at the pool and hot tub.




In the afternoon we played some shuffleboard and then went to dinner and the show "Beauty and the Beast".









On Sunday, Andrea and I went to Palo's for brunch while the kids ate breakfast with Grandma and Grandpa.


Andrea loves all the little bite sized desserts at Palo's.




In the evening, Paige went to the show with Grandpa and Grandma while the rest of us watched the Chief's game in the room.


Such a fun cruise to get us in the holiday spirit!
