I’ve never figured myself for a cruising kind of girl. I grew up taking airplanes, long road trips and camping in the woods. So when I had the opportunity to take my two children (aged nine and six) on the Disney Wonder Cruise, I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I think my biggest fear was feeling like I was trapped with nothing to do once I left port.
That’s probably one of the biggest misconceptions about taking a cruise.
We took the Disney Wonder from Vancouver with a stop over in San Francisco, carrying on to LA. It was a six-night repositioning cruise - which offers great deals when you can snag one (approximately $830-2,400 per person depending on cabin)....

I feel myself squirm in my seat, as Charles Strickland is bombarded with an uncomfortable line of questioning by two lawyers he has asked to represent him.
Charles, who is played by Craig Erickson, is an affluent white man in his 40s, who appears uneasy in the opening scene of RACE; the David Mamet play that is both enthralling and disturbing.
Mitch and Murray Productions, in association with Rooted Theatre Productions and brilliantly directed by David Mackay, depicts the story of two lawyers (one Caucasian, one African-American) who find themselves defending a wealthy, white executive charged with raping a black woman.....
So last week, we were sent a "My Pretty Play House" from Cascades.
The cute litte house is made in Canada and from 100% recycled cardboard.
My six year old daughter was instantly smitten!
She couldn't wait to start colouring on it and drawing pictures to make it her own.
She decorated it inside and out and had a ton of fun with it.....
