The feeling of setting sail for the first time on a Disney Cruise cannot be articulated. It elicits excitement and curiosity, for sure, but also amazement. I recently returned from a voyage aboard the Disney Wonder, the second ship to debut from Disney Cruise Line back in 1999. This was not my first Disney cruise by any means. Yet each one manages to stir me to sing the praises of Disney Cruise Line.
Albeit more outdated, smaller, and overlooked in Disney’s fleet of four fantastic vessels, the Disney Wonder — which could very well enter a long dry dock (major refurbishment) period in 2016 — offers an array of unparalleled experiences, as well as Disney Cruise Line’s best features.
Do you remember watching the Disney Cruise Line commercials that aired in 1998, encouraging you to “discover uncharted magic” and set sail on the Disney Magic? Sixteen years have passed, and with four ships in its fleet, Disney Cruise Line is as bustling as ever with many dozens of voyages around the world each year.
I recently returned from a most excellent, elegant, and exciting voyage on the Disney Fantasy, the newest of the vessels. I continue to praise everything about what the ship has to offer, both tangibly and emotionally, but to describe an experience does not mean as much as actually living it.
I hope to encourage you to realize the possibilities of Disney Cruise Line, albeit through experiencing it vicariously, as I share memories of my time aboard the Disney Fantasy. My story is just one of many that individuals experienced on the same ship during the same week. Each varies in level of relaxation and fun, but almost all contain the same core elements that define Disney Cruise Line: magic, in every sense of the word.
