Step aboard the Disney Magic as we set sail from NYC to the Bahamas and Disney World.

This was the boys’ second time going on a cruise.  With their food allergies, we found cruising to be a good way to have peace of mind that they’d have something safe to eat each day and removes a lot of the stress of finding safe meals while traveling. Their first cruise was on Celebrity and while there were a few kinks at first, it worked out well. It was time to give Disney a try this go around, especially since Disney has a reputation for being very accommodating to food allergies.

This 8 night sailing of the Disney Magic sailed from New York City to Nassau on New Providence Island in The Bahamas, to Castaway Cay, Disney’s very own private island, and finally Cape Canaveral for a day in Disney World.

We had two at sea days on the way down and two more on the way back. This culminated with Marvel Day at Sea, a chance to meet your favorite Marvel superhero.

A lot was packed into this trip and the boys certainly had a blast (and so did the adults). But most importantly, meals went without a hitch and we definitely discovered the premium you pay for a Disney cruise is worth it.
