I see rain was in the forecast Monday and Sunday. Did you have rain? I don't think we've ever had inclement weather on any of our cruises, all at around this time of year.
Not the OP, but we were on the Oct. 23 cruise. We did have some rain showers but they mostly hit during evening hours and were brief. Our port days were sunny and warm/hot. CC was perfect - 82, sunny and light breeze! Still there in my head....

Possible rotations would be PLA, LAP or APL.

Hope that helps! Have a great cruise!
Sorry but could you tell me what PLA, LAP or APL stands for?

P=Parrot Cay

A=Animator's Palate

So if you were on a PLA rotation, you'd eat in Parrot Cay on Saturday, Tuesday, and Friday. On Sunday and Wednesday you'd eat in Lumiere's, and on Monday and Thursday you'd eat in Animator's Palate. The advantage to that rotation, IMO, is that you eat in the nicer dining rooms for formal and semi-formal night. (Sunday and Thursday) The food is the same, but we prefer the atmosphere and decor in Lumiere's and Animator's Palate, and being dressed up there seems to add to the formality of the evenings.

Great Cruise

The Entertainment, Ricky Kalmon was great, the activities, ports of call, the food, the ship, ect...
Not to mention all extras on this cruise with Halloween for the kids and adults, the custom contents was fun. (Mr. Frederickson here for those who were on board…)
All of the wait staff, room staff, bar staff, were above and beyond not to mention the attention to detail.
Can’t wait to go back…

Your costume was great and I like the way you played the part and stayed in character during the judging of the costume contest. The crowd at the costume contest loved you!

Tea with Wendy

Thank you so much for posting the Navigators! This is going to be our first 7 day cruise, and one of the things we've really been looking forward to is tea with Wendy. I saw the note on the first day to come and get tickets, but can't find the times listed in the navigators. Does anyone know the normal time? I just want to be sure it doesn't conflict with our Palo/spa reservations. Thanks!!

Our tea with alice was at 3:00 on a sea day. I went down after boarding at about 2:00 and got the last 4 tickets they had.

Thanks...as I walked on to the stage, it just happened....it was fun.
I pulled Dave aside later the night (the MC) and asked if he was up set that I stayed in chatacter, he told me noway, it was one of the funnest times he had on the magic in 4 years....NOW THAT WAS A COMPLEMENT, not to mention that the crowd got into it....
I wish I knew how to post my pic's of Mr. Fredricksen....

So if you were on a PLA rotation, you'd eat in Parrot Cay on Saturday, Tuesday, and Friday. On Sunday and Wednesday you'd eat in Lumiere's, and on Monday and Thursday you'd eat in Animator's Palate. The advantage to that rotation, IMO, is that you eat in the nicer dining rooms for formal and semi-formal night. (Sunday and Thursday) The food is the same, but we prefer the atmosphere and decor in Lumiere's and Animator's Palate, and being dressed up there seems to add to the formality of the evenings.
We are on the Nov 20 Turkey Day with Suz. Can't believe 2 weeks from now and I will be on a flight to Orlando. I love the idea of this dining rotation. We are planning on really dressing up for formal and semi-formal night and my predicted rotation per Passporter would put us in Parrot Cay for Sunday. Parrot Cay sounds really fun and perfect for the first night, but not what I envision when wearing a floor length dress and hubby in his white dinner jacket. Where and when did you request a specific rotation?


To OP thanks so much for the Navigators. Can't wait to read them all.

Hilary

I loved the Mr. Fredricksen costume! The costume party was lots of fun

I loved the PLA rotation. It was great being in Lumier's on formal night.
