Finally got around to it! Photo TR of 1st Med cruise 2010

Well I was going to do a full TR but this cruise seemed so hectic and I never seemed to have time to write notes. So as I took quite a few photos I figured I would just post those with a quick explanation.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer - can't believe we've been back a month already.

We are Becx and Gav - Becky and Gavin. We flew from Stanstead in the UK to Barcelona on the day we boarded the ship, we would have liked to go earlier but couldn't get the time off work.

Here's all our stuff (we paid extra for two checked in bags and despite doing laundry twice! we wore most of what we took)



Looks like we had company already Kate and Charlotte (2 UK Diser's who couldn't come)



After all the cancelled flights in the days before we were so happy to be able to catch our original flight, I'm so glad we didn't have to go by train or drive
Check in was pretty quick and we were soon through, we spotted a very Spanish looking Mickey and I had to get a photo



We booked a Cat 12 Gty and got upgraded to a Cat 9 We loved all the space.















The view from the stateroom window





Then it's time for the lifeboat drill



Our door and FE







Me and the flatties



I love all the art work around the ship

Our first dinner was at Animators Palate - our rotation was APLAPLAPLAP and we were on the late seating.

I took this because everyone (there were 7 of us) at dinner was on their iPhone except me - I don't have one!



The menu and the flatties



Food porn time

I can't remember who had what so I'll just post everything!

Appetizers;

Salad with bacon and beans



Pork with roasted veg



Fish on top of a pea puree



Entrees;

Every steak was totally different that night and not everyone had it cooked as they asked









I ordered the green lentil risotto but they brought out the seafood one and I don't eat sea food - so I had to wait a bit



It finally came



We skipped dessert as the sail away party was about to begin, we had asked our servers to bring things out quite quickly so we could make the party and they tried their best but I think everyone had the same plan.

The sail away party was good fun but quite late in the evening so there weren't that many people there (I know we were really tired as we had to get up at 4.30am Barcelona time to make our flights)

The first full day - a sea day.

We started with our character breakfast. It was ok but the characters were really quick and didn't stay long at our table, maybe because we were 4 adults but I don't think they should treat you differently if you don't have kids. The dining room didn't seem very busy either so we were a bit annoyed.

Chip and me



and with Gav



It was quite hard to get a good picture as the characters would hardly stand still

Me and Mickey



Gav and Mickey



Emiel, Goofy and Gav



Me, Goofy and Yvet



My breakfast was pancakes with bacon and sausage



Gav had a bit of everything!



Then we were given some rather fetching hats





Pluto and me



Emiel, Pluto and Gav



Dale was looking for food but I'd eaten all mine







No food left here either



Minnie and me

Many thanks for posting all the photos and details of your Med cruise last year. It's been enormously helpful to me as we prepare for our Med cruise in July. As a first time cruiser, I really have no idea what to expect. Your photos and descriptions, especially on the ship, have been great and have answered many questions I've had, but didn't know where or who to ask.

I wanted to send you a thank you via PM rather than clutter up your great thread with a thank you post, but my post count has to be 10 or more before I am allowed to do so.

Cheers to you both!
