Hand Washing System on the Disney Dream

Before boarding the Disney Dream, my son and I had just (finally) gotten over having the flu.  I was a bit apprehensive about sending him (age 5) to the Oceaneer’s Club in fear that he may come down with some other child’s illness while we were on vacation.  This is not to say that I thought that the facilities would not be clean!  However, my son does not quite understand yet that he should not put his hands on objects, then into his mouth.  So much to teach him, so little time!So, when we … [Read more...]
