Unfrozen Winter Winners Enjoy Their Disney Cruise

You might recall the cute Hall family who were the winners of our Unfrozen Winner contest earlier this year. They won by submitting this precious snowman photo: 

Stevenson Service Experts sent the winners on a Disney Cruise and paid for airfare for four. Rebecca and Bradley (Mom and Dad) took their two oldest youngsters, Korbin and Brooke, on their Disney Cruise during mid-summer. This was Korbin and Brooke’s first cruise and Rebecca and Bradley had not been on a cruise in nearly 10 years. 

“I cannot begin to tell you how much fun we had and how seriously incredible the whole thing was,” wrote Rebecca. “It was a trip we could have never taken on our own. Disney does cruising right!” 

The Hall family was sweet enough to give us their itinerary and some snapshots from their awesome trip. If you want to a Disney Cruise, or just want to find out what it’s all about, check out the highlights from the Hall’s cruise. 

Monday

We were on the ship for 2 days (Saturday and Sunday) and then ported in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. We booked a Catamaran and went out with four different families all day. It was my kids’ first time snorkeling and they were in heaven. We got to see turtles and stingrays – it may have been the best experience of the whole trip! 

Tuesday

We sailed from Tortola to St. Thomas in the American Virgin Islands, where we got to do more snorkeling, swam, and hung out on the beach. The water was actually that turquoise blue that you see in movies – truly perfect. 

 

Thursday

We were on the ship all day Wednesday and then got off at Castaway Cay, Disney’s Exclusive Island. The water was incredibly blue and had perfect visibility underneath, so of course that meant more snorkeling! They had hidden Mickey Mouses you could find underwater, which was nice because there weren’t as many fish. They also include an 18+ beach which we lounged around on while Korbin and Brooke played with other kids. The island had employees everywhere to keep an eye on the kids so we (Rebecca and Bradley) relaxed and had a daiquiri. It was basically a floating Disneyland! 

Aboard

It gives me goosebumps reminiscing about everything on the ship – it was so much fun and unforgettable! Disney Cruise Line has a “Midship Detective Agency” where you choose the mystery you want to solve and the cruise gives you a card so you can write down all your clues. When you put the card up to a painting, the painting comes alive – it speaks to you, tells you about the mystery you are working to solve, and gives you clues and directions. One mystery went on for two hours because we were going all over the cruise ship. 

They are always running first-run movies out near the pool so we got to see Big Friendly Giant, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Jungle Book, and Finding Dory. We also got to experience the Aqua Duct, which is a large slide that takes you up and down and swings you out above the boat! 

We went Goofy Golfing and the cruise also has other games and a Tween Club called Edge with things like scavenger hunts, ice breakers, and more. 

It’s very easy to find characters on the cruise – you only have to wait three or four minutes versus 30 or 40 at Disneyland. We met about two per day, and one day we met five in a row! They also have different versions of the characters, including Captain Mickey, Traditional Mickey, etc. 

The stateroom was amazing! We had an ocean view room with a really big porthole and window seat. Our stateroom was a really good size and all four of us were cozy and never felt smothered. 

Dining

You alternate three restaurants. Enchanted Garden has neat flower lights on the ceiling that open and close and the colors on the ceiling change during your meal and Royal Court was extremely elegant and put me in mind of Cinderella. The menu is very gourmet and they have a good selection. My oldest tried everything, even the escargot at the Royal Court. (He thought it tasted like dirt!) 

Animators Palette is animation-themed and they give you markers on your table so you can illustrate a figure. They offer a tutorial on how to draw a figure, then they take the drawings and at the end of your dinner, they animate your drawings on these screens on the wall. You have no warning! They put them to music and place them in Disney clips. Brooke is our artist so she worked really hard on hers and was so excited – the rest of us weren’t quite as talented 

“Our family can’t thank Service Experts enough for this once in a lifetime experience,” Rebecca wrote after they returned from their cruise. “I tear up when I think about it all. Submitting an entry I never thought would go anywhere, finding out we were a finalist, the anxious voting stage, the big announcement, researching and picking which cruise, the excitement of going and finally experiencing an unbelievable adventure. It was such a wonderful time living it all. Thank you, thank you!”
