Disney Fantasy ~ Cozumel and Grand Cayman

Disney Fantasy ~ Cozumel and Grand Cayman

I'm back with more Disney Cruise Line fun! Last week, I recapped the beautiful ship, and today I'm going to talk about our fun at the first two cruise stops which were Cozumel, Mexico and the Cayman Islands.

In my next post, I'll recap the last two cruise stops in Falmouth, Jamaica and Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. So stay tuned!

After a fun day at sea, we arrived in Cozumel, Mexico. I made a HUGE deal about it to lil' miss since it was her first ever new country, and I kept telling her "You're in Mexico!" She was just excited to sit on the beach with her Nana buckets (her beach pails from my mom) and swim in the pool with our friend's son. Oh and we can't forget the ice cream cones! 

*How we'd look with 2 kiddos*

In Cozumel, we decided to book a day pass to the Allegro Cozumel Resort which was all-inclusive and included meals, snacks, and drinks from all their bars. There were 2 big pools (1 with a swim up bar), a giant splash pad for the kiddos, and a beautiful beach with plenty of loungers shaded by palm trees. 

*Running free in Mexico towards the beach*

*St. Thomas koozie in Mexico*

*My favorite new bathing suit which is only $27*

*Tequila shots for the adults because Mexico*

..... and ice cream cones for the littles

"You have kids.... at a swim up bar!"

The next day, we arrived in Grand Cayman where we had a tour booked with Captain Bryan's Sail and Snorkel which included transportation to and from the boat we were taking to Stingray City, snorkeling at Coral Gardens, and a fun stop at Starfish Point. 

*Still my favorite Beach Cover Up and it's only $23*

*Let's just say I was not exactly comfortable with the sting rays*

*Yes, I'm totally representing the wrong cruise line with my hat*

When You Wish Upon a Star

When You Wish Upon a Star

We're back from a wonderful week aboard the Disney Fantasy, and I am warning you that if you follow me on Instagram that my feed will be vacay overload for the foreseeable future. It was lil' miss' first ever cruise and time out of the country, so I was THAT mom telling her "You're in Mexico! You're in the Cayman Islands!" etc...

Our ship stopped in Cozumel Mexico, Grand Cayman, Falmouth Jamaica, and Castaway Cay which is Disney's private island in the Bahamas. I will come back and recap the ports of call next week, because today I'm going to recap the beautiful ship and all the onboard fun.

*Someone was VERY excited for her 1st cruise and that Minnie greeted her on board*

*Our floating home for the week - Room 5190*

Something unique about Disney's cruise ships is that you have 2 separate bathrooms in each stateroom. One bathroom has a sink and a toilet while the other has another sink and a bathtub. Yes - bathtub not just a stand up shower. Game changer for little ones at bath time. Plus, can we talk about the amazing spa products stocked in the shower as well as a Sea Salt lotion by the sink. 

At the sail away party, lil' miss had a dance lesson from a cast member while watching all her favorites dance on stage. We also met up with our friends we were cruising with who have a son that couldn't wait to sail with us.

Dinner on the first night was in Animator's Palate where lil' miss enjoyed her first ever Mickey Ice Cream Bar. She enjoyed it so much, she decided to wear it too. I loved how we rotated to different restaurants each night, but our waiters followed us. We had two amazing waiters who took care of lil' miss and the son of our friends every single night and knew what their favorites were.

Day 2 was a day at sea which I kicked off with a spin class. That class was NO joke, but we felt amazing afterwards and less guilty drinking frozen beverages by the pool.

The adults only pool complete with a mister and a swim up bar, there was also a whole other deck above for adults only with a rain shower pool. It was nice to escape to the serene areas for a drink with my friend while the guys had the kiddos for a bit.

Lace Bathing Suit - Less than $30

You better believe I went on the Aqua Duck water slide which goes around the top of the ship. Forever the big kid standing in line waiting for the water slides.....

*Dinner in the Enchanted Garden*

*She's STILL talking about this moment*

Pom-Pom Cover Up - Less than $20

*Mini golf at sea is serious business*

I of course loved the on board champagne bar called Oooh La La. Who would I be if I didn't order the Moet with a popsicle in it?

*One must order double dessert while on a cruise*

And you can't forget Pirate Night where everyone dresses up, and there's a huge deck party after dinner complete with dancing under the stars and fireworks at sea. Only Disney....

Stay tuned next week where I'll recap our time in Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, and at Disney's private island in the Bahamas - Castaway Cay where I even did the 5k.
