The Lost Vacation

The Fantasy docked at Cozumel

While sorting old photos, I kept thinking we had taken a 3rd Disney Cruise with the kids. But I had no photos in my smugmug album, and only one blog post about being “On Our Way.” So did we actually go, or is this simply a Fantasy

Turns out, we did depart on April 1, 2017 for a 7 Day cruise on the Fantasy. This cruise was triple special, because it was for Olivia’s birthday AND it was a Star Wars Cruise. AND it was on the Fantasy, a new ship for us.

I remember having a problem getting the Photopass photos from Disney – never did get them. And by then we’d moved on to other trips and I let this one slide. So here we go … highlights of the Lost Cruise coming up.

It all started with the dogs. Kathy & Steve kindly came to our house to watch Natasha & Stitch. Pretty nice of them to give up a week to stay with the hounds. The California kids all arrived, and we took the traditional van ride to Port Canaveral.

We safely navigated our way onboard. While it was a different ship, it was much like the Dream.

All dressed up for dinner:

The next day we arrived in Cozumel. We were signed up for an island tour in little ATV cars. The plans included snorkeling and lunch at the beach. The kids had fun. Catherine and Beth especially enjoyed being serenaded by the Mariachi Band.


Catherine and Beth, and Lou and I, enjoyed a fancy pants dinner at Remy- one of the two signature restaurants onboard the Fantasy. Dinner was nice, with lots of small tastings and a most interesting lemon dessert. Mark and the girls enjoyed pizza, burgers, and soft serve ice cream cones (I’m just guessing on the soft serve, but I have a 98% chance of being correct, as Mark’s love of soft serve is only surpassed by my own).
