A Dream Come True First Cruise-completed 2/8/2012

This is going to be our first cruise and i could not think of a better cruise then on a Dream .

Let start by saying my wife has always wanted to go on a cruise i was the one that would change her mind and say let's go to disney and of course i would get no arguements . but she always had it in the back of her mind , so when i herd they were building a new ship and calling it the Dream I had to make this Dream come true for her . with that being said here i go

The Cruisers
Jeff , Lily DW , Molly , Philip and one of my best friends Debbie and DH Philip
and yes 2 philips

The date 8-28-2011 --- 9-1-2011 and then back to wdw for more fun

So here goes of what i got done so far , we leave NY on 8/26 and arrive in mco then we are going to pick up rental car and drive to Port canaveral hopefully the drive is not going to be too bad after flying for 3 hours. we booked the Best Western for 2 nights it is suppose to be close to the port . since i want to relax for the 2 days we are going to wing it . looking for something to do not too expensive this is why im skipping on kennedy space centre . If anyone has any suggestions on food not to expensive i will appricate it ?
the day of cruise i will drop everyone at the port we plan on getting there real early then i will return the car and catch up with everyone . from this point it is commando time again cause it is going to be a wait to board and hoping we get a low boarding number . from this point i know a few things but still need to learn more .
hope to post more as i learn more or hear more from all of you till then Bon Voyage
Jeff and family and friends

Jeff I am so excited for you and your family. Molly and Philip are going to have so much fun and I know that you and Lily are going to enjoy every minute of your Dream cruise. The restaurants are fabulous and the shows are awesome. You will all love Castaway Cay. I can't wait to hear all about your trip.
