Sail Date: Jul 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Imagine you're sailing on a cruise to Alaska. It's raining outside. There's no casino and it's cold on the upper deck. You've got a cranky wife and an unappreciative kid. There's hundreds of sugared-up kids excited because Mickey or Goofy is about to appear. You venture outside of your cabin only to be bombarded by "It's a Small World" or "Just a Spoon Full of Sugar."

As we sailed toward Tracy's Arm, I spotted a couple of brown bears on shore. I thought about jumping ship, swimming to land, figuring I could take both of the bears out and survive on bear meat for a couple of days. But that would have meant swimming across the water where we had just seen a couple of whales, and someone else saw an orca. (They seemed pretty friendly, and hey, they don't eat DISNEY customers, do they?)

I knew a Disney cruise wasn't going to be for me. I hate Disney theme parks and don't buy into the magic. But my wife and kid love Disney, so I figured how bad could the experience be?

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Great cabin, with a separate toilet and shower/bathtub. If you're a family with kids, the bath is huge. My son loved the bed that got pulled down from the ceiling. Our bed was very, very comfortable. Plenty of closet space. And as always, great cabin attendant. These guys work very hard, please show your appreciation to your waitstaff and cabin attendant with a little something beyond what Disney recommends as a gratuity.
