This is a glimpse of our dream vacation aboard the Disney Dream!
The internet is full of blogs with helpful information about what you'll need to know when taking a Disney cruise. Over at Fab Chick Gets Fit, Valerie does an amazing job of detailing her family vacation on the Dream with these posts here, here and here. This awesome lady happens to be a personal, real life friend of mine too! At Dixie Delights, I found a wealth of information that you can find here. At Insider Tips Disney, they detail the boarding process for the Dream here. I however cannot vouch for how well this works since our family received the prestigious honor of being FAMILY OF THE DAY and were the first people to board the ship. We almost fainted!
One of the things that I knew I wanted to do for our family was to make a keepsake we would have to remember our trip by. This is a mat I had in my craft supplies (still can't remember what I bought this for) and decided I would follow the lead of Christy over at Harvard Homemaker and spruced it up with some customization.
As you can see, I used my Silhouette machine to personalize the frame. Once on board, I dropped it off at guest services with my colored markers to have it signed. I was so excited the last night of our trip when it was returned to our room with all the signatures. Awesome!
My last craft project was our pirate shirts for Pirate Night. My son had pirate accessories that we brought along (eye patch, sword, and glow in the dark skull rings) and we knew the ship would provide us each with a bandana so all we needed were Disney inspired pirate themed shirts. Check out what my Silhouette and I dreamed up for us.

By far this was one of the best vacations I've ever had. The only other that comes close was my time spent in Hawaii.
There was something aboard for everyone in our family -- time alone and time together.
To me that spells the perfect vacation!
