Reason #3 to Cruise!

Wake on a sea day!

Disney Cruise Countdown!

Hey all! So we are 20 days away from our epic return to Disney Cruise Line! Woohoo! Doug and I are super excited!!  The last time we sailed on Disney was in 2013 on the Fantasy, we loved it, but one day while standing on deck 11 near the food court, I had the misguided thought that I needed a break from Disney cruising! So that was our last Disney cruise….until Feb 25, 2019! When we return to the Disney Dream.

Oh and that break I needed? Yeah well we cruised on Carnival next and there was no relief from the crowds of kids/families; as a matter of fact there was less space dedicated to hiding from it all!  We did find relief once we sailed on Celebrity. But what we realized after sailing 4 other cruise lines is that we love Disney and there is no substitute for the level of service/hospitality that we get on a Disney cruise! And the Disney ships are gorgeous beyond compare….I think only Cunard is going to come close;although Celebrity has a beautiful ship. We have not sailed Cunard  yet, and we won’t for another 2 or 3 years, so maybe I will see if I can do a ship inspection soon! I will let you know my thoughts.

Anyway, now we are back at Disney and we are excited. You may be surprised to know that Doug’s level of excitement rivals mine! lol

So here is a short vlog we made discussing the next 20 days!  If you enjoy the vlog or don’t want to miss any vlogs coming up- please subscribe! And like!  And thank you!

I hate drama and controversy…..but…..

So lately there has been some controversy brewing in the YouTube/Cruise Vlog community! This has caused me to want to address what should happen when you book a cruise with a travel agent….and what you should expect from your travel professional! And, what you should never do when booking a cruise with a travel agent;especially one you have never met in person.

So in this video below I refer to a controversy. I never say what it is and I realize when I watched it over that this can be very frustrating! To not really know what I am talking about. So I will briefly tell you that the controversy had to do with a very popular cruise vlogging family on YouTube. This family, or the matriarch of the family, is being accused of taking deposits for group cruises and not booking the cruise. I do not have anything to do with them and I do not know what is factual; I am aware of the accusations and the fact that, to date, the person accused has not addressed the accusations.

Because of this controversy I decided to address booking policy as it relates to taking deposits. I also took the time to explain who I am and what my experience is. At the time that I made this video my Facebook page had a different name. It is now Cruising with Christine and you can find a link at the bottom of this page!
