The sixth part of our trip included a stop over in Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, and finally to Port Canaveral in Florida, which would become her home port.
First a bit about Castaway Cay: Although this was technically my third time on the island, it was definitely also my favourite!
We booked the Stingray Experience as well as snorkelling for our day on the island, and wasn’t disappointed by either.
With the stingray experience, we got to not only see them up close and personal, but also learnt a lot about them, and even got to feed the stingrays – an experience I will never forget!
We also enjoyed some quality relaxation on the white sand beaches of the island, cocktails on the beach, and a little bit of exploring the other things to do on the island. Lets not forget about the food. In true Disney style, we were treated to an island barbecue, with all the meat, salads and other condiments that go with a traditional barbecue (or braai as we call it in South Africa).
From the island we continued our overnight trip to be welcomed into Port Canaveral, as the Disney Fantasy arrived for the first time in her home port. Not only did people from all over Florida flock to the port, but the Disney staff at the Disney Cruise Terminal were out in full force to welcome her to her new home.
Once again, the excitement in the air was extraordinary, as a new chapter began for Disney Cruise Line.
Keep a look out for the next part of our journey in my next post…
