Show Notes

We're chatting with Claire, a Disney Cruise Line, Year of Wishes winner, who took her family on a fabulous cruise aboard the Disney Wish, DCL's newest ship. This was not just Claire's first time on Disney Cruise Line, it was her first cruise. So we were excited to get her perspective on the Wish, having never cruised before with Disney or any other line.  We're chatting activities, pool deck, food, Castaway Cay and so much more! Claire also has active vlog where you can connect with her and her travels, and even watch a video of her fabulous Year of Wishes sailing. You can also connect with Claire on Instagre: @lightthecauldron.
