The gardens at the top of town were gorgeous, with amazing views.













Debbie and her DD stayed in town to walk around some more, and the rest of us went back to the ship for lunch.

We ate out on deck 9.

After lunch Debbie was back so we went to lay out, read and swim. It was just a gorgeous day! After looking at forecasts, I was worried we would have a slightly chilly cruise, but the weather most days was perfect. Not too hot, but plenty warm enough to swim.



Afterwards we showered and went to watch When In Rome. It was cute.
We stopped by to see Lilo and Stich and Chip and Dale on the way to dinner at Parrot Cay.







Few photos out on deck 9:









We shopped for a little while after dinner and my sweet in-laws bought me a Dooney and Burke Mickey bag. You may have seen the Dooney and Burke line at WDW or DL, but there is also a special line for the cruises. I opted for the more subtle (?) navy pattern with Mickey’s.

Tonight was a comedy show with Heath Hyche. On one of my previous cruises, I made the mistake of sitting in the front row for one of Heath’s adult only performances. Suffice it to say, I still cringe a little when I hear his name, so I skipped that one.

The girls went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D.

I went to the room to check emails. Then we went to bed!

Lovely photos! We're doing our first ever Cruise next month and then spending 3 nights at the new Nototel Barcelona City Hotel! DD will be thrilled to bits having a Subway and Dunkin Donuts right on the doorstep!

Good, I'm glad I helped someone! We really liked the hotel. The second one we stayed in (Avenida Palace) was my favorite, but Novotel was super nice.

Tuesday, April 27th, Day 6 – Tunisia (Africa!!)

We were going to Africa today! I can’t tell you how excited I was to visit yet another continent. This was Disney’s first time to stop there.

We had done our homework and been warned about the aggressive tax drivers, but we didn’t want to pay for an excursion and decided to risk it anyway.

We ate a nice breakfast at Lumiere’s and got off the ship about 9:00.

I was very excited to see the camels waiting for us!





We had planned on walking to the train station. On our way there after we’d declined about 30 (no exaggeration) cab drivers, one of them finally convinced us. It was a good price and we decided it was worth it.

We split into two cabs (which made my Dad exceedingly nervous) and headed for Sidi Bou Said. This little town was beautiful! It's know for its white walls and blue doors. We walked all over and did a little shopping. I took about 50 blue door pictures!

Our cab drivers picked us up two hours later. They insisted on taking us to the top of one of the buildings and I was very glad they did!











He also insisted on taking some pictures with my camera. I'd rented a $1600 lens, and him holding my camera without the strap around his neck made me a lot more nervous then splitting into two cabs!!





When we arrived back at the port, we paid the drivers and tipped them at their suggestion.

This time I couldn't just pass the camels. I mean, how often do you get to ride a camel? The guy said it was 5 Euro for a ride. I only had one coin left, so I asked for just a picture. He was shaking his head no, when Debbie found another coin. So we just kept saying 2 euros, no ride, just a picture. He finally gave in, and acted like we were a big inconvenience.



I have to say, this picture is one of my favorites just because, like I said, how often can you sit on a camel next to the Magic???





Then the camel owner, whom we were inconveniencing so much, then started posing for pictures!!



Afterwards we had a late lunch on deck 9, and spent the afternoon swimming, sleeping in the sun, and another Origami class!

This was the note the girls left us on the door. They left us notes all week to tell us where they were. This was their current situation:

We took some more pictures with characters before dinner. Are you ready for Italian characters?







After dinner, we went to see Who Wants to be a Mouseketeer and the girls got called up! They won a pin and a trophy. Aren't they cool?



The show tonight was for special itineraries only. It was called “Once Upon a Song” and was basically just 5 of the entertainers singing. They all had amazing voices and I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.

Afterwards we went to the room to get some sleep! Tomorrow was all day walking in Naples and Pompeii!

Amazing pics! I love all the blue doors and the camel owner pulling out some "blue steel" for the camera!

Your photos are beautiful! We are going to buy a new camera for our September 2010 Med cruise and are wondering what camera you used.
