As we dig out from the third major storm of the season here in the Northeast, Good Enough Mother has a song in her heart because by this time next week, I will be on my way to the Bahamas. Don’t hate. You see I’m not just flying to the Bahamas but sailing there in spectacular style aboard Disney’s newest cruise ship, The Disney Dream. Okay – you can hate now!
Here’s the deal… The fine folks at Disney invited the Good Enough Mother team to check out their newest ship, which officially sets sail later this month. The Disney Dream is the latest addition to the Disney fleet and while the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder are pretty spectacular ships too, the Dream is BIG! She’s 128,000 tons – roughly 40% larger than the others in the fleet. I’m no stranger to cruises having been on quite a few in my time but I would often see the Disney ships in port and wonder what sailing on them would be like. Now I’m about to find out firsthand and I’ll share it all with you. Fancy a sneak peek – here’s a little look!
As well as getting some much needed R&R on the trip I’m going to give you my unique GEM take and keep you abreast of all our adventures. Sometimes it’s hard to choose a vacation that will be fun for the whole brood but after checking out the Disney website it looks like there’s virtually no danger of that on this cruise. From the nine-hold miniature golf course to the onboard roller coaster/water slide, it looks fun is on tap for everyone. And I’m covering all the bases – my mom is coming with me and my GEM producing team, Richard and Roger, will also be along for the ride (those big kids are standing in for Casey and Cole)
I want to reassure you that it will still be business as usual here at Good Enough Mother we’re prepping lots of great stuff for the site for while we’re away and are aiming to post from onboard, internet coverage permitting! And just think, when we get back, we’ll have amazing stories to tell and pictures to show. It will be sort of like you were right there with us. I promise!
Okay gotta run, I have about 12 pounds to lose before Tuesday… hey a girl can dream, can’t she?
