Panama Canal Disney Cruise: August 2008

From August 17th-September 1st we set sail on the beautiful Disney Magic to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! The Disney Magic was docked in Los Angeles, CA all summer doing week long Mexican Riviera cruises. We were more fortunate to go on the exclusive 15 day repositioning cruise starting in Los Angeles, traveling through the Panama Canal and finally closing off in Port Canaveral in Florida. We were also able to go with our cousins and some friends from the ward who made the trip a blast!
Los Angeles, Ca; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Acupulco, Mexico; Panama Canal; Cartagena, Columbia; Aruba; Castaway Cay; Port Canaveral, Flordia
This is during our early wake up call of going past Panama City, Panama. Rachel and I are here with the beautiful Panama City Temple in the background. It was so amazing to see how the canal works! How long do you think it takes to go through the canal? Try 12 hours! It was so crazy! There were times when the boat was a mere 11 inches from the cement locks we were traveling through.
The next day the boat docked in Cartagena, Columbia. It was the first time Disney had ever been to this port and it was a beautiful city! We spent the day touring and enjoying the beautiful city.
The last day of the cruise is spent at Disney's private island- Castaway Cay. It is gorgeous and exotic. We were able to do a stingray excursion and enjoy our last day in paradise and aboard the beautiful Disney Magic.
This was the perfect way to round out the summer. Thanks to Mom & Dad for making this all possible! We love you!
