cruisecastle Posted August 23, 2006 #1 Share Posted August 23, 2006 This was my second Disney cruise and first back to back ever. First on the back to back. It is easy and wonderful. We had the entire ship to ourselves from 8:30 until 11:45 we watched the last folks walk off and first folks walk on. We were the only back to backs on this cruise that included alternative Western double dip and regular Western. Castaway Key 3 times in two weeks was awesome. All you do is go to the front desk at 11:30 and they recheck you in and issue new room keys. We were in the same cabin so it was NO work. The greatest thing about doing two weeks is you really get a chance to relax and I will be doing it again when the new ships are delivered. One nice surprise was that the comedians etc.. were different on each cruise so we really had great entertainment the whole time. I was expecting to see the same folks each week so this was great Everything about these cruises was great and I don't have a single complaint. When we took our first Disney cruise two years ago we thought the food was ok but not great. In fact Carnival's was better. Today however Disney's was awesome and despite the fact Carnivals is better today than it was two years ago as welll Disney now blows Carnival out of the water on food. The cruise was smooth and we landed at all of our ports. In Costa Maya the temple of the masks tour was great and I would highly recommend it. In Grand Cayman did the Submaring in the am. Went down over 100ft and the island tour in the pm. Both were very good. We only had 10minutes between tours but the other met where the first dropped us off. Cozumel we did the Fury snorkel excursion. The coral reef is gone but the number of fish was great and overall it was a good time. If you were really looking for a big coral snorkel then you'd be disappointed. The second time we just shopped and hung at Pancho's backyard and had a marg. Key West we did the Schooner sailing which was fun and relaxing. Castaway key we did the string ray deal and we really enjoyed that. The photographers on Disney were great and we dropped just over $800 on pics. Went to Palo's for the first time and was absolutely blown away. Incredible. Make sure you do this. Every staff member we interacted with was great our head waiter Aleksandra was awesome and brought our daughter gifts every night for eating her veggies. As usual the Disney shows were well done and shouldn't be missed. We made one mistake as we didn't book another cruise while on board but did book one for thanksgiving 2007 two days after we got back.
