Once we got off our 5 day cruise to Taiwan, we immediately got back onboard for a 5 night cruise to Vietnam. When I say “got back onboard” which isn’t technically correct, Mum never even got off the ship. Back-to-back cruisers simply go to guest services for new keycards if changing staterooms. We vacated our … Continue reading

One thing I do before I cruise is to check out the daily activity schedule. I struggled to find them online for our RCCL cruise from Hong Kong to Taiwan so for your reading pleasure, here is Day 1. These brochures are left in your stateroom each night and other languages were available from Guest … Continue reading
Usually I’m one to fastidiously plan a trip months ahead of travel but with needing to use up the last of my leave before starting a new job on Monday (yikes!), an immediate plan was put in place. Researched on Thursday, booked on Friday and travelled the following Wednesday. I initially looked at tours but … Continue reading
And here we have Aruba! Dutch Caribbean island in the middle of … the Caribbean. I’d like to say it was the highlight of the cruise, but I guess it wasn’t – we have in grand total 8 photos for our entire time there. To be honest it wasn’t memorable, we stopped here on a … Continue reading
This is the last in my series about Disney Cruise Line food (for now at least). Don’t forget to check out my other posts about Desserts, Sweets and chocolate, Vegetarian Dining, Sundaes and Creme Brûlées and Sweet Temptations Desserts. Don’t ask me why they are mostly about desserts – that would be a stupid question. Onto the … Continue reading
One of the things I love most about Disney Cruise Line is the lunch buffet dessert selections. Towards the bottom of this post are two photos with blue rimmed plates – these are from the lunch buffet. OMG, this is dessert heaven! The little tartlets on the Alaska cruise we did were amazing, so good they … Continue reading
Although I’m vegetarian, my Mum isn’t so thats why some of the meals in the photos below contain meat. The last 3 photos are meals from the Children’s menu. Although we don’t cruise with children, Mum occassionally orders off the children’s menu if nothing appeals on the main menu. Dining tip 1 – the buffalo fries … Continue reading
In the past on Disney Cruise Line, we had two complaints about the dining. The first complaint was the food was bland, the food in the main dining rotation seemed to have had all the taste sucked out of it and was lacking flavour. When we did our Transatlantic cruise back in 2010, the first night after … Continue reading
The one thing that people always talk about when cruising is the food. As the saying goes, you go on as passengers and come off as cargo. You know you have had a good cruise then you consider restyling the bedsheets as your disembarkation outfit… Disney Cruise Line is no exception, though they aren’t necessarily considered … Continue reading
A few years ago Disney Cruise line introduced the Sweet Temptations dessert option on their menu. Every night on the menu, the desserts are different. This options depend on the evening’s dining theme and can also change depending on your itinerary. Often I can’t choose a single dessert, they all sound good, so the sweet temptations … Continue reading
If you are cruising the Mexican Rivera or doing a Panama Canal cruise, one of the stops you will most likely go to is Acapulco. Most of the people on your ship will be aiming to see the famous cliff-divers. This means if you simply cross the road from where you ship docks (or did … Continue reading
