BFFs Kara & Gayle - One of our last cruise photos taken without masks!

We are both Platinum Castaway Club, reside in Indiana (USA), and each work in the higher education field, although Kara has recently branched out on her own and launched her own consulting company.

Our Disney Cruise Line experiences include the Bahamas, Caribbean (Western & Eastern), California Coast, Mexico, West Coast Repo, Alaska (only Kara), and Mediterranean.

Favorite Cruises

Our favorite cruises have been when 1) we got “stuck” at Disney Castaway Cay for an extra 24 hrs(!), 2) the inaugural Pixar cruise with John Lasseter, and 3) a 25% capacity on our Disney Fantasy “Return to Sailing”. Kara also loved Alaska, which she did with her parents.

Past Trips

If you happen to want to see some our previous Trip Blogs:

There are more - we just haven’t gotten them posted with photos!

Things to know about us before diving into this Trip Blog are that I (Gayle) am the Type A “planner”, while Kara is much more appreciative of the broader experience, more able to appreciate new discovery and finding “joy”! Once the trip gets started, hopefully we will be tag-teaming our narrative of the cruise!

Kara: Gayle’s being really kind. I am a total Type A planner in my professional life. I love my calendar, my to do list, and my notebook where I do my own version of bullet journaling. That said, when I’m traveling, I prefer to try to relax. And, because I’m lucky to have a best friend who also happens to be an exceptional travel agent I am more than happy to leave the details to her when we travel. I am incredibly appreciative of all the work she’s put into this trip and every trip we’ve ever taken.
