T Minus 30 Days To Cruise

The anxiety is starting to get to us now.  We are now starting to prepare for our Back 2 Back cruise in April aboard the Disney Dream.  Usually I would already have asked my wife to have at least half of the packing done, but she has been busy making our Fish Extender gifts, and getting the T-Shirts finished for the other cruisers.

We have been showing our daughter videos, and photos of the ship.  We finally got to see a video of an inside stateroom like we will be staying in.  The rooms square footage is smaller than the last ship we were on, so we are wondering if they found a way to shrink the size of the mattresses, or if they had custom made furniture designed for this ship.

The virtual porthole is where the challenge waits.  My wife is a bit concerned about the virtual porthole being on at certain times, and hopes that there is a On/Off switch.  Have you been on the ship, and what did you see?

How Clean Can Disney Get You?

On our last 2 cruises Disney had changed over to a new product that was left in the staterooms.  They changed to H2O Plus Spa bath and shower products.  Wife was rather impressed with the product, and wanted more.  We later found out that it was also being used at the Disney World Resort.  Our little one likes them because they smell, and work well.  Our little one had her acne problem go away for a while when she used them continuous, but I don’t think that it had anything to do with the product.  She uses them all the time and claims that because she uses them on her body that they help out by becoming a body acne wash.  Sometimes kids can be so naive.

Here is the original press release about this.

CELEBRATION, Fla. — Disney Cruise Line guests can absorb the enriching benefits of the ocean while sailing on the high seas. The cruise line is offering H2O Plus Spa bath and shower products to all 877 guest accommodations on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. These high-end products, derived from marine botanicals, bring a piece of the ocean into every stateroom.

The high-quality, water-based H2O Plus products stocked on the Disney Cruise Line ships include Sea Marine Revitalizing Shampoo, Marine Collagen Conditioner and Hydrating Body Butter from the H2O Plus premium Spa line — all in uniquely designed, co-branded bottles. Guests staying in concierge-level suites will find additional H20 Plus offerings such as Sea Salt Body Wash and Solar Relief Gel.

The family-friendly staterooms onboard both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder also feature  Sealy Posturepedic Premium Plush Euro-top mattresses, pillows and Frette 300 thread-count, 100 percent Egyptian cotton linens. In addition, larger, more luxurious bath towels and bath sheets are available in all stateroom bathrooms.

In all concierge-level suites, there are comfortable duvets and a “Pillow Talk” program which allows concierge guests to choose from a selection of hypo-allergenic, feather and therapeutic memory foam pillow options.

Sea-derived skincare innovator H2O Plus, L.P. has been making a splash in the specialty global retail market with an array of skincare, spa, bath and shower and color cosmetics products for the last 16 years. The company’s entrepreneurial founder and creative director, Cindy Melk, has grown H2O Plus from a concept of water-based, sea-derived formulations to an internationally recognized branded company.

A leader in the family cruise segment, Disney Cruise Line delivers a cruise experience that every member of the family feels was created for their own individual vacation wants and needs.

Departing from Port Canaveral, Fla., Disney Cruise Line offers three-, four- and seven-night itineraries to The Bahamas and the Caribbean.  Land/sea vacation packages that include a stay at Walt Disney World Resort are also available.

Disney Cruise Line Stateroom Decorating

For those that are going to be cruising onboard a Disney Cruise please take the time to read this.  Please understand that if I can understand their reasons that you should also.  Disney does put a lot of time, and money into their ships, and while they want everyone to enjoy themselves they don’t want to have to maintain things that shouldn’t be damaged under normal use.

I made things for my cruises back some time ago, and if you cannot find a way to express your thoughts, then please let me know, and I will be more than willing to give you some thoughts.

I make custom graphics, shirts, magnets, Fish Extenders, and more.  Please let me know if you have an idea, or if you have no idea, and I can make everything magical.




More and more guests are choosing to express their family pride and enthusiasm for Disney Cruise Line by decorating their stateroom doors aboard our ships.

As you might imagine, it is very important to us to keep our facilities looking their best for all our guests.

As part of our commitment to this area of focus, we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

We have found that these adhesives damage the finish on the stateroom doors and therefore ask that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety.
