Nathan Cruises with Disney

Arrrrrrrgh!

“ Sometimes family time is the best medicine. ”

Nathan received his most heartfelt wish when he set sail to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream along with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and many more of his favorite Disney® characters. Aboard the Disney Dream, Nathan attended live Broadway shows, enjoyed all of the delicious food he could eat, and even met the big mouse himself, Mickey!

Five-year-old Nathan suffers from a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children. Despite his illness, Nathan enjoys the same things as all young boys: dinosaurs, Power Rangers®, and Spiderman® cupcakes to name a few. However, more than anything else, he loves Disney!

After seeing a commercial for the Disney Cruise Line, Nathan fell in love with the idea of sailing the ocean blue with Mickey and friends. Nathan received his most heartfelt wish when he set sail to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream along with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and many more of his favorite Disney characters.

Aboard the Disney Dream, Nathan attended live Broadway shows, enjoyed all of the delicious food he could eat, and even met the big mouse himself, Mickey! Nathan and his family took pleasure in the sand and sun in the beautiful city of Nassau. After leaving Nassau, their next stop was Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, where families are free to enjoy snorkeling, boating, swimming, and good old-fashioned sunbathing!

Nathan was bursting with excitement during the entire trip and his mom loved the kindness and compassion their entire family received during his wish experience. Nathan declared his wish “the best vacation ever!” This was an experience Nathan and his family will never forget!

  • Jack Sparrow and his castmates helped Nathan and his family enjoy their pirate adventure!

  • Arrrrrrrgh!

  • Tons of fun in the sun!

  • Nathan even got to visit with the Captain of the Cruise Ship!

  • Nathan was all smiles!

This was the best vacation ever! ”

— Nathan, wish child
