On our cruise, FH and I will be celebrating our honeymoon and neither of us are especially morning people to begin with. But, we're also both the type that doesn't like to miss anything, so we might be getting up earlier than normal just on that count. But what time do things start happening in the mornings? What time does breakfast start and end? What time do the earliest activities (say alcohol tastings, etc...) start happening? TIA for the information. :goodvibes

Let's see...."morning" officially begins right after midnight....:lmao:

Seriously, I am not totally sure as I'm so not an early morning person. I THINK some things like Yoga are rather early.

Those who are knowledgeable about the times on the clock that I don't admit even exists will probably soon be here to tell all!

I have a Navigator from our recent 5-night Dream in front of me. The master schedule starts at 7:30, mainly with exercise-type stuff. Character M&Gs around 9. Cabanas starts serving breakfast at 7, the sit-downs at 8. The first alcohol tasting (champagne) this particular day is not until 1.

Thank you. :goodvibes So basically, if we don't get up until about 9, we really won't be missing anything, right? What time do the stateroom hosts come to spruce up the rooms? I don't want to interfere with their schedules either.

We are not morning people. On non-port days we were not up and about until after 10am each day (maybe later). We hung a DnD sign on our door at night and never had any issue at all with our stateroom host.

OK, that sounds good. :)

One of the port days, we've got an excursion at 8 something in the morning. :eek: Yeah, that'll be quite the interesting day. I hope FH likes "grumpy girl." :rotfl:

On a morning "at sea" after a busy day in port, we often get moving around the crack of noon. And yes, those Do Not Disturb signs are very handy.

Ah, that would be the day I ran through BB, grabbed a breakfast burrito to go and a cup of OJ as I dashed up to the meeting area for our excursion (eating breakfast while they finished final check-in procedures). :rotfl:

Yeah... I somehow doubt I'll even be THAT on top of it. Breakfast? Not likely. popcorn::

Just let your stateroom host know what time you want them to come around. They will not disturb you if they know of your plans. Plus, using the DnD and it is just like in the resorts, if it is out they are not even allowed to knock on the door.

Yeah, that is pretty early in the morning, but...

24 hour FREE room service + FH already on Pacific Time working mornings (super-motivated by the prospect of FREE pizza for breakfast) = Guaranteed breakfast (not pizza, I assume) waiting for you when you wake up :)

Honey, you're MUCH more of a morning person than I am. It disgusts me sometimes. ;) And pizza for breakfast??? REALLY??? :headache: Thank you for offering to get me (non-pizza) breakfast that morning so I don't have to get up any earlier than I have to. So sweet! :lovestruc

Yeah, I guess I am one of those lucky people who gets to be a night owl and a morning person. Ok...pizza for breakfast sounds crazy, right? Break it down:

Sausage...very common breakfast food.
Bacon...born for breakfast, even the Canadian version.
Cheese...very commonly for breakfast (i.e. breakfast burritos, sausage biscuits, etc.)
Bread...Used commonly for toast, English muffins etc.
Now...what's missing? People frequently have some type of fruit with their breakfast (i.e. banana:banana:, strawberries, blueberries) Since I am gunning for a more balanced diet and no other fruit compliments this particular combination...we have the tomato. It should be noted that tomatoes are not completely foreign to breakfast (i.e. sun dried tomatoes)

Essentially, what I am doing is putting together a very sophisticated composite breakfast together while ensuring that I don't get hungry until noon (pastries and tea for lunch, I believe)

And I am always happy to use my cheerful morning spirit to make life easier on you :)

I will be very interested to see if this gentlemanly behavior continues on our second cruise together - i.e. our 1 year anniversary cruise next year. :rotfl:

I have had many a breakfast of a cold slice of pizza and a glass of milk!!!

I have the opposite problem...no matter what time I go to bed...be it 9:00 pm or 2:00 am...I am up at 7:00ish. My body just wakes up...never use an alarm clock....can't sleep later even if I tried.

They have those cards that you hang outside your room with what you want for breakfast and what time you want it delivered.

I tried cold pizza for breakfast once in high school. DEFINITELY not my thing. :sick:

And that's a REALLY nice feature they've got with the card saying what you want for breakfast and when! That might come in pretty handy! :banana:

Room service is also a great way to make sure you are woke up in time to eat and make it to your meeting spot on time also.:thumbsup2 You can have it arrive at any time you want.

You know it will :) And don't expect me to be eating tons of pizza and go back to my "old unhealthy ways" either. I see this as a once (ok...twice) in a lifetime opportunity to have pizza delivered whenever I want ;)

Ahh, just the encouragement I needed

Thanks for letting us know about that. It will be really useful :)

Speaking of pizza for breakfast........cake is also a great breakfast option. Lets take a look:

Flour (also found in items like bread and bagels)
Milk....who can have breakfast without milk. You can also add more calcium by drinking a glass of milk WITH your cake :thumbsup2
Eggs....awww the incredible, edible egg. It has breakfast written alllll over it.

So, if you not inclined to eat pizza for breakfast you can always have the cake of the day delivered the night before with milk and enjoy a nice breakfast option. :laughing:

Right on! Like you said, the Cake at Sea varies daily! It would be a shame not to try all of them ;)

If you had say the hawaiian pizza (comes w pineapple) and a glass of milk on the side, it would probably be the perfect breakfast....at least my son would think so!:lmao:

You can use the gym as much as you want - no charge.
The spa services are extra.

That's kind of how we use it, as a little bit of a wake up call. My girls wake up "starving" in their words, and hate that it takes mom & dad a little time to get up, showered, dressed, etc. So, we always get some light stuff from room service delivered, along with coffee. They get to eat a little something, mom & dad can relax and get ready.

How about breakfast pizza? I'm on Long Island and this became popular for our morning meetings at school. It really is yummy and has all the "breakfast" type foods: eggs, bread, sausage and bacon!

Now I have that "Dad is great, gave us chocolate cake" chant in my head from Bill Cosby. He did the exact same reasoning you did, CherylSue. But he added grapefruit juice.:cake:

So congrats on your honeymoon cruise. Take advantage of the room service. I recommend champagne and fruit delivery around noon on your at sea day..... romantic:flower3:

I had been a bit concerned about waking up as well ... then I remembered that West Coast 9a is going to be 6a Hawaiian Standard Time, and DS4 wakes up with the sun whether or not he can see it ... he just knows. So we're just going to roll with it for the Victoria excursion since we have a bit of a bus ride to the Gardens anyways we can nap en route. :thumbsup2
Can't remember if you've got a time change from where you're coming from, but that might help if you're further East. Also won't your body get used to waking up early from wedding preparations? ;)

I AM further East right now, but I'll be on the West Coast for 10 days prior to our cruise, so I'm thinking I *should* be adjusted by then... maybe. When I went to visit FH in February, I started to get adjusted to the time change on day 4. So I think by day 10 of my adjustment (which is day 1 of the cruise), I should be pretty well adjusted, I think.

We're also doing the gardens. Are you doing the tea one, or a different one? We're doing the gardens and tea. ;)
