I am a big Disney fan, but most recently I have become a HUGE Disney Cruise fan. I’m in the process of saving and planning a Disney cruise to the Mediterranean. Even though I genuinely believe that a Disney Cruise is worth every single penny, I still love saving a buck or two whenever I can. Click to read how I saved over 13% on my upcoming Disney Cruise.
The final day of the cruise was an interesting one. After four days full of excursions at Endicott, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan, we finally had some downtime to enjoy the ship on our own. We were a little exhausted from my days full of activities, so this Sunday at Sea was a more relaxing one.
Three months ago I wrote a blog post about the top 25 tips for preparing for an Alaskan Cruise. I wrote this blog post based off of things I read on other blog posts, message board, and talking with friends. A few days after posting my tips, I boarded the Disney Wonder in Vancouver, Canada for a trip of a lifetime.
Ketchikan was the last port of call until the long sail back to Vancouver. We were also in port from 11:15 am until 7:45 pm, so it was a different vibe and feel for excursion day. I had decided to purchase tickets online through a third party to visit Misty Fjords National Monument, so it was the first time that we were actually on our own.
The fifth day of the cruise we were ready to see some whales!
Before we were even able to get off of the ship, we ran into Mickey and Minnie Mouse in the hallway! Even though there are tons of planned character events, my family opted out of participating in any of these activities due to lines and just the time allotted to see the characters.
However, I did want to see Mickey and Minnie in their Alaskan Gear and was so excited that I ran into them in the hallway on the way to our excursion. Granted, they do not stop to take photos so if you run into a character on the ship, be quick with your photos! I was able to snap a few in the hallway before they had to disappear to their next appearance.
