Planning my first cruise

Post by Unvoiced_Apollo »

So planning my first cruise for April 2021 (so hopefully this Covid 19 will be resolved by then), which also kind of makes it for my birthday. I chose Disney because I heard a lot of good things. It will be 5 nights with two days at sea as I want to really experience the boat aspect of it. It will go from Miami to Cozumel to Disney's Castaway Cay. I already booked my stateroom a few months ago. And glad I did because apparently those get filled up way in advance.

I"ll be on the Magic, which I selected in part because of the Tangled theming. They even re-theme one of the bars into the Snuggly Duckling. And one of the main dining rooms is themed around Raounzel's birthday, and she & flynn & the thugs go around greeting guests. So I thought it would be fun to tell her we share a birthday.

Really excited but any tips are appreciated.

It seems like this trip would mean a lot to you, but I would advise against it for the time being. There's no guarantee right now any of this will be settled even by April- these estimates of a vaccine even being ready by January seem to be a best case, the-stars-have-aligned-perfectly scenario, and not necessarily something we should bet on.

It's already paid into. I'd rather just take the chance and move it if necessary. They've been pretty good about working with the other cancellations from this year so don't doubt the same will happen next year if it came to that..
