I'm sure this has been covered in some thread or another, but what was something you enjoyed that is a little obscure or that hasn't been mentioned too often. Since we are cruising Aug. 5 this will be a fun recap.

The one thing I NEVER miss is the Stir-fry that is made to order right in front of you at Topsiders at the Oriental Buffet on the one day at sea. Yummy! I even learned how to make it at home. My DH isn't too crazy about it, but I LOVE it!

OK, I may be crazy, be get up early on one of the sea days. The ship is so calm first thing in the morning and the sunrise on a boat is awesome.

A heaping plate of breakfast food on deck ten. Disney service and the friendly attitudes of the cast.

We love the stir fry but get it down in PC instead. :)

Ice cream sodas on Deck 9. Take a cup from the drink station over the the ice cream then back for the soda. :)

That was going to be another thing I mentioned, sort of. Since we've seen most of the shows (this year we have our DD21mos so we'll be hitting them all) on the past cruises so while everyone is getting ready for the first seating and the shows, my DH and I take advantage of Decks 9 and 10 being virtually empty. Around 6 - 7 is a great time to do this. We have so many pics of just us and not another soul around. Or we hit the hot tub and are the only people even in the pool area. It's a great, peaceful time. Check out the pics below. You'll see some where we "own" decks 9 & 10!! :thumbsup2

I enjoyed walking around the ship at night when it was quiet and most people had already returned to their cabins.

Early breakfast up at Topsiders, it was just so nice to have a good breakfast and enjoy the ocean going by. :goodvibes

I've been on four cruises, but don't remember a lobster night. When & where is it?

Semi formal night, where depends on your dining rotation. How did you manage to miss that on 4 cruises?? :confused3

Mike Super was a magician and illusionist that performed on our cruise. He was fantastic. We even saw his show in Rockin Bar D (he also performed in the Walt Disney theater) and you could not tell how he did any of the tricks. He was like David Copperfield only also very funny and very personable.

Don't miss him if he is on your cruise.

I agree - Gary Daleana! (we still use some of his jokes to laugh amongst ourselves!)
Mickey Bars
Deck 4 chairs on a sea day
Towel Folding
Free drinks with the captain
A movie on the jumbotron
Seeing the Dessert Buffet (and not heaping a plate!)
...and the list goes on!

Early morning is one of my favorite times on the ship. Either on my verandah or up on decks 9 & 10. I love making a nice cup of tea and getting a piece of stollen bread from either Goofy's Gallery or Cove Cafe. A great way to start the day.

Watching Pirates of the Caribbean late at night on the Dumbotron. Great fun!

Same with us, we did it twice

And great to see an interpreter on the Cruise. :thumbsup2

without interpreter on the show/cruise, we will lost out.

I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but there is nothing better than sitting at Topsiders w/ a cup of coffee just looking out at how beautiful St. Thomas is in the morning and thinking how lucky I am to be waking up to this.
