Day 1 Sunday May 9th continued

After dinner we decided to walk around and explore the ship.. here are some pics

next the little kids play room.. these rooms were Amazing. About age 5 your child could choose if they wanted to go in the play room for smaller kids or bigger kids. Ours LOVED both.
The CM's were fantastic about having everyone scanned in. They were given soap and sent to wash hands in the adorable kids bathrooms. The CM's were also very good about getting the kids to all join in. The smaller kids club had a TV area with what on TV but Disney shows.. a stage and a dance floor, a cool climbing and sliding area and a computer and book area. They had scheduled activities going on all day and night. They are open from about 9am until 1am. They are also very good at check out time.. they scan your card and the kids wrist bands to make sure they match and you must know the password. Also, your kids can have a CM page you whenever they want to be picked up.. Ash paged me several times LOL
Ash playing in the book area with the huge connect four :-)
Jess

We then checked out and went to the bigger kids club.. The oceaneer lab. They had computers EVERYWHERE. Ashley was in heaven. at least 30 computers, a huge craft table, game tables, and a lab/cooking area.
Jess in the big kids club.

Topher and Ash on the computers

DH joining in LOL
Believe it or not.. the girls wanted us to let them stay and play for awhile
Not Topher GRRRR
So we walked around with him for awhile
On Deck 9 with new capt. Sparrow Sword from the gift shop
near Wavebands


We are exhausted so we go pick the girls up from the kids clubs and look what we find in our rooms
my room
kids room

Jess took the big queen bed
and then

Showers and bedtime.. night

We were awake early as we could hear and feel the thrusters starting to dock. LOL I have heard about it here on the boards but wow..we decided to sleep in and order room service for breakfast because we didn't have any real plans until 12:30pm.


DH sleeping again.. UGH


Hanging out in Wave Bands ready to go to Blue Lagoon to the Dolphin Encounter :-)

On the boat

Ashley just loved the dophin :-) We kissed him, petted him, danced with him, hugged him, touched his teeth.. It was Awesome. Jess did about half of that.
Topher didn't want to do it before we left for the cruise but once there he was so happy he did :-)

After we played with the dolphins we went to the beach on the Blue lagoon island and played in the water for about an hour until the boat returned to take us back to ship. I have pics of the beach too but they were on the waterproof camera and are not loaded yet.
Once back to nassau across the street we stopped and bought some rum cake and a bottle of rum for DH. Yes, you can bring alcohol on Disney ships
:-)
Oh and a stop for more Iced tea at Starbucks :-)
Getting back on the ship was a breeze.. then off to shower and change for dinner.
this night we ate at Animator's Palate.

Oh and guess who fell asleep again LOL



But she woke up again :-)


Francisco cutting up her food

Mickey Ketchup
More later.. gotta put the kids to bed

Gotta love those smiles!

Looks like nice servers - helping to cut the food.

Did the kids like Animator's Palate? The pictures of that place look pretty cool.

I just love the photo of y'all with the dolphin. That would make a fantastic Christmas card.

WOW!! You're already doing your TR and posting pictures--I'm only just now getting back on the computer after that WONDERful cruise! So nice to get to meet you and your family, Lisa! Thanks for the neat stuff in the FE exchange, too! Wasn't it all a blast?! I love the FE!!!

Hope you are feeling better and the UTI has been banished. What a way to start a vaca

Love seeing your pix and your take on the cruise! Poor Ashley, just too tuckered out come dinner time, huh? I couldn't believe it when I looked up from the menu at dinner the first night to see the same server we had on our first cruise 2 1/2 years ago!! We absolutely loved him and he even remembered us!! We shared hugs all around and once again, he took super good care of us each and every night. Gotta love the Mickey ketchup! Did anyone in your family ask for nothing for dessert any night? If not, you should see what they do for that!!!

Looking forward to reading your next TR installments!
