On deck with Mickey in his Alaska outfit!

At the end of May, my family and I packed our hats, coats, and gloves, to set sail on a spectacularly "Frozen" Disney Cruise to Alaska.” There was even still some snow to be seen!

We set off for Vancouver a few days early to experience all that city has to offer. We went on a whale watching tour and saw whales, harbor seals, and bald eagles. We also explored the Olympic Village and saw the pyre where the Torch flamed for the 2010 Games.  

We fell in love with the farmers market on Granville Island and went home wishing we had something like that here in Memphis! Everything was fresh, local, and homemade. If I lived there, I would fill my pantry exclusively from the market. They even had a children’s market. 

Our hotel was the perfect set-up to our Disney Cruise. We had a harborview room at the Pan Pacific Hotel, so we got to watch our ship come into port. The next morning it was just a quick trip down the elevator and straight out onto the ship. 

Once aboard, we kicked things off with the Sail-A-Wave (get it?) party with all of the characters. We also saw characters throughout our trip, including the Frozen characters at the Frozen Deck Party, and in the original shows of “Golden Mickey” and “Dreams,” which were Broadway caliber, in my opinion. 

Further entertainment options included music in the atrium every evening, silent disco parties for adults and kids, game shows, karaoke, and all the movies you could want in the theater. We got to see the new “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie in the ship’s theater and even took in the new “Little Mermaid” film before it hit theaters - and it was all included! 

Disney Cruise Line is fantastic with their restaurants and this cruise was no different. One of my favorites this time around was “Animator’s Palate”, where you draw a character all your own before the meal starts, your server takes you page, and throughout the evening, animators animate your character and show it on the big screen. It was so cool to see my character dancing to music and later placed into a Disney scene! 

This ship also had “Tiana’s Place,” which was based on the 2009 movie “The Princess and the Frog.” A small jazz band played New Orleans style music throughout the evening and both Tiana and Louis (the alligator) came around to the tables. We were even able to join in on a New Orleans style parade through the dining room, including swinging our napkins!

The other “princess” I got to meet was my eight-year-old daughter, who chose to be made over as Belle at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. If you’ve never heard of the BBB, it is an all-inclusive princess makeover experience, from getting your hair and makeup done, to picking out a dress, crown, and prancing out with a goodie bag. Even the staff is part of the magic, labeled as “Fairy Godmothers in Training.” This experience is also offered at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World, but we like to save it exclusively for our cruises. 

The entire experience was truly magical and I can’t wait for my next Disney Cruise!
