Listener Question:

My husband and I are divorced and I want to take my son on a cruise for his 14th birthday. His father was cool with him going, and is now is being a jerk and saying he won't sign for him to go. Do you have any suggestions or is there a way around this?

Did you know that maritime law requires a cruise ship to go into dry dock every five years? Neither did I. Disney Cruise Line's Disney Fantasy just got out of a two-week dry dock where she underwent massive renovations and was reimagined. Nancy Schretter was one of the first passengers onboard when the ship got back to Port Canaveral and goes into detail about the dry dock enhancements and how the ship is today. Also, we hear about Castaway Cay.
