I think you will LOVE the cruise. We like cruising better than the World at this point.
I really don’t know if they will allow your 11yr old to go down to the Lab or not. But, they are sure to have fun regardless. I love the disney Magic and will miss sailing with her this year.
The Passporter is the best for cruising. It has been so long since we cruised the Eastern intinerary. I am thinking we just took a cab on our own to one of the beaches and then were free to leave when we wanted.
I look forward to hearing more about your cruise. What is your sail date and have you been assigned a cabin?
