Wanna Go On A Cruise?

We mentioned a couple days ago that giving the gift of travel is great for your loved ones.  But what about yourself?  You deserve a trip to look forward to as well!

Just over a month ago we got back from the first ToaD Fantasy sailing.  During that cruise we more than doubled our group for the ToaD Magic sailing in 2013!  We all had such a great time getting to know everyone and spending time with our friends, old and new.   When we heard that we were not going to make it to Castaway Cay, the five night sailing on the Disney Magic was looking more and more favorable.  You see, on that sailing we will have two stops at Castaway Cay!  Here’s the full itinerary for October 20, 2013:

  • Day 1 – Miami, Florida
  • Day 2 – Castaway Cay
  • Day 3 – At Sea
  • Day 4 – Nassau
  • Day 5 – Castaway Cay
  • Day 6 – Miami, Florida

Serenity Bay

If the five nights is not quite enough for you, you can also add on the 2 night sailing on October 25 which is a cruise to nowhere.

Pricing for the five night sailing starts at just $675 per person plus tax.  This includes any activities and gifts that we would be doing for the group.  Check out our home page as well for an exclusive offer if you book before the end of 2012.

ToaD is Running for Rescues On Disney Fantasy?

Yes, that’s right!  On our recent Disney Fantasy sailing, we had originally planned to do the 5k on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.  As we approached the cruise date, we realized that we would be getting to Castaway Cay a bit later than would be comfortable for walking or running.  We wanted to start the race a bit earlier.  That way we would also be able to enjoy our full day on Castaway Cay.

Disney Dream Review – Double Dip Cruise

Editor’s Note:  Our client Nicole, just returned from a cruise on the Disney Dream, her second Dream cruise in just four months!  Thank you for sharing your review Nicole!

Here is my second Dream review, from the May 27th 5 night Double Dip cruise to Castaway Cay. This was my sixth DCL cruise, and second on the Dream (having done a 4 night on her in February). My parents and I had a wonderful time. It was my dad’s first cruise and now he is hooked on DCL, he can’t wait to sail again and has agreed to join me on the 12 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise on the Magic next summer! My mom, who sailed only once in 2004 on the Wonder, said she enjoyed this cruise much more than her first. We both agreed the food has improved DRAMATICALLY on DCL since our first cruise in ’04.  I remember not liking anything but the fast food options on that cruise, and now I love everything from the chicken fingers to the Chilean sea bass to the desserts! Food at CC was the best ever, we had steaks, lobster, mahi mahi, salmon, and all the usual other BBQ stuff—it was hard to fit it all in! My mom was a bit weary of doing a 5 nighter but liked it so much she has agreed to do a 7 day in 2014. I’m so glad because I don’t think I can do anything less than 7 again. The 7+ day cruises are just so much more relaxing, more time to do things, and more offerings like the classes, tastings, tours, etc, plus the real formal night is one of my highlights.

ToaD is Running for Rescues

In past blogs I have mentioned that I was going to accomplish my first official 5K this year in support of Running for Rescues.  I don’t plan to run this, mind you, I will be walking.  But I will be doing this on Castaway Cay in the Bahamas and doing it for a worthy cause.

Running for Rescues (RfR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping organizations rescue animals from high-kill shelters.  This organization was started by a runner who’s husband was getting tired of her bringing so many rescue dogs.  She figured there had to be others like her willing to help out these animals.  Maybe not to take them in, but to help save their lives.  She set out to find another way.

I Want To Go On A Cruise!

Last night I went to bed and the snow started to fall.  Originally, they had predicted 3-5 inches of the white fluffy stuff, but had backed it off to 1-3 inches, starting around 1 or 2 in the afternoon.  Since it hadn’t really started until around 8 pm, I thought we probably wouldn’t get much if any.

I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland.  Here is the view from my kitchen window!
