NYC & Canada Day #4: First At Sea Day

I realized I forgot a video from our first day on board the Magic so here it is!

One of the best sounds in the world! This video was taken at the Adventures Away Sail Away Party right before we left New York! :0)

Also, here’s the prior recaps if you missed them:

NYC & Canada Day #3: Boarding the Disney Magic
NYC & Canada Day #2: Wicked!!
NYC & Canada Day #2: New York Yankees

NYC & Canada Day #1: Exploring New York

Ok on with the 1st At Sea Day!


I absolutely loved being able to wake up and watch the sunrise from our Verandah! My reason for waking up early was to go for a run….but more on that in a different post.


Let’s run!

In total, I ran 6 miles around the jogging deck. I kept track of laps on my phone because I couldn’t keep count of all of those numbers in my head!

After the run, I went back to our cabin to shower and relax. I took the blanket off of our bed and curled up in a chair out on the balcony to read a book. If I could have bottled up that moment and held onto it forever, I would have. Hands down, the hours after my run when everyone was still sleeping, no sounds but the waves lapping against the ship, the gentle rock of the boat – just me and the ocean – were my absolute favorite part of the trip. I was able to spend about two hours on the Verandah and if I could transport myself back there right now, I would! :0)

Unfortunately, I couldn’t sit on the Verandah all day! We had a ship to enjoy!!

First on the to do list, deliver my Fish Extender gifts!


I had fun exploring the ship during my deliveries, too!


I spy another ship!


So we weren’t alone out there after all!


Lunch at Top Siders


Followed by the Art of Entertaining in Studio Sea!


Forgive me – the item on the menu was a Lobster/Shrimp something but I can’t remember the name!

This chef was really funny! He whipped out his “small” whisk!


The finished product! Really yummy!


We spotted Minnie Mouse on our way to the Buena Vista Theater!


Brave in 3D!

That night on board the ship was also Formal Night!


I can’t take my husband anywhere…..

We had dinner in Lumiere’s and I ordered Tofu! :0)  It was really good!


We followed dinner with Twice Charmed in the Walt Disney Theater


The cast of Twice Charmed


Family :0)

We also made friends with Micah the Piano player!

We saw him several times throughout the cruise and always made sure to say hi!


A towel animal surprise!


My husband was trying to start a fashion statement……

Uh, no.


The moon was gorgeous over the ocean. This picture does not do it justice!

If anything, this cruise helped me realize that I love Verandah staterooms and if at all possible, I’d like to stay in one again on our next cruise!

We had a great relaxing day At Sea and we couldn’t wait to see Canada the following day!

Coming up: Halifax,  Nova Scotia!


  1. I LOVE your dress! That is so adorable! I also love that you kept track of laps on your phone. I could completely see myself messing up and having no idea how far I've gone :)

  2. That previous comment is from Megan - Running Toward The Prize. I just realized I was signed into my other account! Oops :)

  3. I LOVE your dress. Where did you get it?

    1. Thanks!! :0) JCPenny! I searched for WEEKS until I finally found one that I liked!

  4. haha I told you once you stay in a verandah room you can't go back! I love reading a book on the verandah, we spend lots of time doing that!

  5. I love running the decks early in the morning too! A Disney cruise looks so fun!

  6. You two are cruising animals! I can't wait to go back on our next one!
