Episode 24 – Special Themed Disney Cruises

In December Amy did her very first Christmas themed Disney Cruise and in January Rachael went on the Castaway Cay Challenge cruise!  Funny enough they are the same itinerary and same ship but totally different vibes.  In this episode we talk about the differences in a themed cruise and of course review news and rumors.
