Our post wedding festivities began the way any wedding night should: complimentary champagne, chocolate strawberries, and room service. Although we were both able to enjoy our dinner during the reception, we quickly realized we were both starving when we finally made it back to our hotel room. We also discovered a nice surprise left for us by the hotel - champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We may or may not have snacked on those while we waited for the rest of our food to arrive...

Once we made it to the Orlando airport, we had to find our way to Disney's transportation terminal and hop on one of the buses that takes cruise passengers from the airport to Port Canaveral to board the ship. I had actually wondered how enjoyable this part of the trip would be; a forty-five minute bus ride with lots of over-excited children could be a potential for disaster. However, it was actually very exciting! They show a video during the drive that includes ship info, Disney trivia and some fun classic Disney short films. By the time we got to the ship, I was in full on Disney mode.

As if the room didn't provide us with enough space, we were also presented with the most amazing deck, and views, I could've imagined. Going into the trip, I was most excited about getting to have this space all for ourselves, especially if being surrounded by families on our honeymoon proved to be less that relaxing. Luckily, that was not the case, but we still managed to spend some private time out there and enjoy the remarkable views from our hot tub!
And, that we did! I woke up the next morning and stepped out onto our deck to see beautiful blue water and Nassau awaiting our arrival. One of my favorite things about cruises is waking up each day in a beautiful new place. After a rough night, the Bahamas did not disappoint.
|Fun fact: the ship you see to the far left is the largest cruise ship in the world, Royal Carribean's Allure of the Seas!|

Anyone else going on a cruise for their honeymoon? What are you most looking forward to about the trip?
