Wait, you are terrified of cruises!? How come? And yes you totally should do this. 

Lol had to share - my brother and I, when we were little saw an ad for a Disney Cruise, and we were like "oh my goodness! We have to convince mom and dad to take us on one!!!" And my little sister (bless her heart) was like "yeah but... How do they get all the rides on the boat??" πŸ˜‚ - ames013  90.7 #3563 1:03PM
I have not done the one out of San Diego,  but I have done 2 in the Caribbean and highly recommend the ships.  A short trip out of San Diego sounds like a great way to see if you like the experience,  which I'm guessing you will :-)  Disney ships are beautiful and so much fun! - duckymomo  36.4 #5025 11:34AM
if you have never done a cruise I say start with a 2-3 night with another cruise line so it's not as costly. If you do well then book a longer cruise with Disney. I did a 3 night to Ensenada in 2005 with Carnival and had a blast. My husband just booked us on a 3 night on the Disney Wonder to Ensenada. We are so excited. He's booked this trip to see if it's worth the money to do the Star Wars themed cruise next year.  - CM_Tamstirr  552.1 #329 11:20PM
I'm glad you posted this because now I know I'm not the only one fearful of going on a cruise.  My fear is both the isolation (from land) and seasickness.  But reading through the comments has put me more at ease. - MrsFletch  125.3 #2987 8:31AM

Basically all I can see is what sic Said. The paint looks fresh and new, especially the gold. 

Ok! I'm on it! Haha. I'm back in toon town Cuz I was racing back to gadgets go coaster with my 3 yr old. Haha. I don't get here early in the morning that often. I couldn't see anything different, but I'll go back later and check it out. :) my guess is that they put like tons of embedded crystal lights or something for it to look like shining diamonds. Maybe? Haha.  - sunshinegates  714.1 #232 11:11AM
My guess still is that they just did a nice thorough repainting job. And they will decorate later. We'll see. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4366.8 #22 11:22AM
I would think they could do the decor overnight. Like the Christmas theming. And from the Artist renderings, it doesn't even look like as much decor as Christmas time.  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4366.8 #22 1:36PM

I sat next to a girl who was eating a turkey leg the other day. She couldn't quite figure out what she was eating but she was sure it was not turkey - at least no turkey she'd ever had! (and not in a good way) - joebriz  94.8 #3512 1:50PM
Haha. This made me laugh. Did she just keep eating it? πŸ˜„ I can't even stand the way they smell. I can't imagine ordering one. I've joked that the turkey leg eaters need their own sections, like the smokers πŸ˜‰  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4366.8 #22 2:14PM
She didn't finish it.  She said it tasted more like pork than turkey - which led us to conclude that it might be a new hybrid pork fowl beast.  Last time I saw turkey legs for sale outside of Disneyland was at the racetrack in Indianapolis where they sold turkey legs, oil cans of Fosters beer, water, and cigarettes.  I stuck to the Fosters and water.   - joebriz  94.8 #3512 10:19PM
