058 Two sailings on the Disney Fantasy to the Eastern Caribbean

Platinum Castaway Club member Frank, joins us again to discuss their two last minute cruises which they booked on the Fantasy to the Eastern Caribbean.  Even though both cruise itineraries were the same, they were very different experience for Frank and his wife.  We discuss Florida residency rates, parking at Port Canaveral, onboard dining experiences (including Palo and Remy), renting a Cabana at Castaway Cay, and his thoughts on how some of the islands are still slowly recovering from the hurricanes that battered them last year.
