I am caught up to the ending of OKW day with that gorgeous sunset; dusk is my favorite time of day when along the coast.

Tell me more about the cruise food package- I thought all food was included when on a Disney Cruise?

My honey makes a wild mushroon and Parmesan risotto and serves it with either veal or lamb chops and its to die for. I have a Pavlovian repsonse to risotto. I could marry it. Truly.

Jen sounds awesome and what fun she put together for you all! I bet the non DISer offspring were uber jealous!

The food at Topsiders looks good- I would gain 1000 lb with food available 24/7! I guess food is avaibale to me now 24/7 too.

Love your green clippie streak in your hair- so cute.

I want the not-fit-to-post news.

That dude had like 2 cases of empty Coors Light bottles in front of him. Fun date.

He was three weeks older than Wizard. Well you can't bring a puppy in the room and not want to take it home. So we talked about it and I ended up calling the next day and asked if we could get him as well. So now we have Wizard and Ace and I am so happy we have both. We got them from a breeder that is here in PA from Vandergrift. That is a terrible experience that you had with that one women, she sounds like a breeder who is only out to make money and does not care much about the dogs. Goldens are such great family dogs so I can only imagine how wonderful he is with your sons. We don't have kids yet but we always say that we are sure when we do they will love the kids. The picture in my avatar is from when they were about 12 weeks old.
That is such a sweet story! I would have felt so bad for Ace, the last little fur ball left! They are the sweetest dogs, and as puppies? OMG- fuzzy furball teddy bears- the SWEETEST!!! I LOVE your avatar- they are adorable!!

The woman with the dog has written a book, she thinks she is an authority on the subject of dogs & autism...and boys, because she grew up with two brothers. After meeting my 3 sons for 45 minutes, she felt they were too physical for a golden (according to HER, goldens need a very calm environment) and would be much better suited to the temperment of a chocolate lab. I. HATE. HER. Interesting that I since have met many, MANY people who she has treated badly. The only thing good to say about her and her Connecticut pups is that if she wouldn't have been so ridiculous, we never would have gotten Summer, who turned out to be the sweetest dog ever.

By the way, my kids are ALL VERY gentle with Summer- they always have been.

DH wanted one of those painted skulls...dont' ask me why, he's weird, what can I say? We looked all over and couldn't find one. I'm sure we probably could have if we had stopped further away from the Port to shop.

I probably could have convinced him not to be upset about it, until he saw some teenager at disembarkation carrying the exact thing he had wanted. Although maybe I can use this as leverage to get him on the Mexican Riviera itinerary someday?

Your tequila looks yum! I would totally be up for a 'rita made with that.
Yes, I DO want to- but we're going to Hawaii- we have a dummy cruise booked that we will probably keep switching until 2013. And i never saw the skulls! I feel like I really missed out now!

OOps- gotta run- Tim needs the computer for homework...back later!

Well, you REALLy deserve to have a great time then! The people on the cruise work SO HARD- what did you do on the ship? Were you an entertainer? What line? The thing I love most on the Disney Cruise is the CMs- they go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time. It's wonderful to be pampered that way! And thanks AGAIN!


Bahaha - so I worked for NCL a zillion years ago - when I was still thin, blonde and worthy of being continually harassed by the men of all ages that boarded the ship (very annoying part of the job when I was 19, but now I'd be ALL over that). But I do have my DH to ogle me all the time and I appreciate that! But I digress. I was cruise staff, a YC (youth counselor) and I don't think I worked that hard. Weird hours, maybe. They would fly me to a random port, I would board the ship for a week or two at a time and then fly home. I would go out for busy "kid" times - holiday times. Depending on the age of the kids depended on how hard I worked. The preschool age kept you hopping! They were super fun, but really hard work. The teenagers were the best - I took them to shows, to the midnight buffets, hosted hot tub parties and dj-ed their club nights and then I would dress up for the theme nights and teach everyone the line dances or greet on the gangway on embarkation day. Long hours, but lots of fun.

I have been to Cozumel and hadn't thought I would want to go back, but your Nachi pictures made me rethink that.

That's the kind of picture that Denny would take if I asked for a picture in FRONT on the ship.

I love the picture between the two ships - cool!

Ah - pomegranate tequila. I never knew there was such a thing. I would love to try that. That's gonna be my first Ditch drink in May. I love liquor stores - I think all the bottles are so pretty!

The beach and pool look so amazing. Perfect pictures to look at this time of year.

Cool snow pics!

Have fun in St J's!

Looks like you had a great time in Nachi....especially with the swim up bar. I can't believe the prices!! SO CHEAP!!
Pomegranate tequila looks so good! I can only imagine that the ritas would be especially flavorful I saw a few bottles like the one my friend brought me back from Mexico....hand painted looking ones How were the ritas? All you can drink? Happy you found Jen....I would have been so lost trying to figure out where I was and what time zone I was in

I asked my Dad once about the deer lying in my yard in the snow..I was concerned they were too cold Apparently their hair is hollow and they are very well insulated in the snow

Tracy
The Ritas were good- made with lime juice, not a super sweet mix (which I HATE!!) but they were not very strong. Which was probably a good thing when you were drinking them all day, hanging with your kids!

And that stag really looked comfy in the snow, like he was snuggled in a big, white blankie!

Ah ........ shopping, such a wonderful thing to spend your time with! Margaritaville looks awesome! I'm not that fond of the one they have at UO!

I've never been in that one- although now I'm curious...why don't you like it?

And really good purchases in that liquer store!

Can't wait to hear more of your adventures!

It's more likely that we will sail in September or October mainly because the price will most likely be considerably less than the August cruise. Plus we'd have more options as far as available staterooms.

...it would be so much fun to sail with that same Dis crew again. I hope it works out one day.

Awesome....love all the pics, even though they are from the crapcam (probably better than my *good*cam but I'll digress before I get Ron all riled up on the camera deal again. He knows I want a new one.)

Don't you have the same camera as me? Mine is a Canon Rebel xsi.

He was there, but I think he was in the pavilion. Maybe he was taking care of Sarah. Hopefully someone was taking care of her...LOL...

The only downfall to Nachi...man those drinks were weak. Seemed like they even watered down the shots. That was no "Ditch" tequila they were serving us up, that's for sure!

No, it was not any DITCH tequila, but, again, that might have been a good thing!

Yes! In fact I think Disney is the only line that changes its' clocks to match shore time. You do get used to it though. We take an ipod with us and set a clock on it for each, one for ship time and one for shore. You have to watch if you use your phone, since most phones will automatically adjust time based on your location.

OMG, when I read that I was ! I have the BEST story to go with that "never use your cell phone for keeping time on the ship."

A few years ago, we went on a 2 night Cruise to Nowhere on Norwegian Dawn in NYC. We were with a group of 10 adults, and on the first night we were all meeting for dinner at 8:00 at the Italian Restaurant. So, it had been a day that started with us all in a limousine and champagne, followed by more drinks and more drinks, a little nap and then meeting for dinner. Pods & I sat down out side of the restaurant at 8pm to wait for everyone. Did I want a drink? Sure-so Pods & I have a martini at the martini bar right outside of the restaurant. We were STARVING, and we couldn't understand where everyone was! Especially because our friends that we came with are very anal, and ALWAYS EARLY. But we figured maybe they had lost track of time, so we just waited. SO we had ANOTHER martini...OMG, we were sooooooo hungry, and we were sooooooo wasted! Well, we finish the second drink, and we were just so confused as to where our friends were- when they all came walking out of the restaurant. They were like, "Where were YOU???" We were right HERE- waiting for you! Well...we were going by the time on our cell phones- which had changed to maritime time, even though the ship had NOT changed....so our 8:00 was really 9:00- we were an hour LATE for dinner, and now it was really after 10 pm- we went back into the dining room, and they brought us out some really AWFUL pasta for dinner, because it was all they had left....OMG, we were a MESS!!! Too many drinks all day without enough food, it was DISASTROUS!!

So yea- I'm pretty sure I'll never use my cell phone to tell time on the ship AGAIN, LOL!!!


What really had us messed up on this cruise was that they adjusted the times for Cayman but decided not to for Cozumel.

Ya know, they didn't do that last time- they adjusted for Cozumel, as well. I think that's what made me so confused!

Pssst....you probably have extra space in your stripper room to tag me along if you need an extra alarm clock...just sayin'!

As long as you don't wake us up everyday screaming at your Daddy, you are welcome to tag along!

Okay I totally did not see this going on. LOL.

They were very funny in that store!

Yeah you guys did your business quick and were gone! Ron was pretty indecisive. They had the buy 3 get one free you know so lots of decision making had to go on.

Yea- I wish I had paid more attention to that- but Pods HATES TO SHOP sooooooooooooooooooooo much, that his whining and complaining about it begins as soon as we walk in the store- so I'm sure I was stressed and just wanted to get out asap.

Ah, I see....it was a mission! That *does* look good!!!

Yeah...what an awesome day! Loved it!!! We must do it again!!!
I really hope we do!!

Good one!


We found it- LOVE this stuff, it makes AMAZING Pomegranate Ritas!



That's the same one I bought in PV! Love it! I should have picked some up in Cozumel - Just wasn't in the mood to deal with the airline stuff. How did you pack yours? DS packed mine last time.

We had had a great day- I asked Pods to take our pic in front of the ship-



almost spit my coffee out!

Yea...well, I guess you can see the very front of the hull....



Looks like a fruitful shopping trip. Did Pods get his shirts?

Nachi was about 5 minutes past Chankanaab on the island.

And yea, boys do bring out the grays!!

No food poisoning- I think that night we were just happy we got fed at all...

I'm pretty sure I mixed up my pics and some of the photos were from a different sunset...OOPS...

Tell me more about the cruise food package- I thought all food was included when on a Disney Cruise?

Yes- all the food is included, except Palo which is an upcharge of $15, and snacks outside of the theatre before shows (which we never buy). All the rest is included- dinners, lunches, breakfasts, snacks, by the pool, from room service, etc...Actually there are a few things that might cost more from room sevice, they have snack packages or something, I don't even know because I've never ordered them. Mickey Ice Cream bars are free, that's what REALLY matters!

My honey makes a wild mushroon and Parmesan risotto and serves it with either veal or lamb chops and its to die for. I have a Pavlovian repsonse to risotto. I could marry it. Truly.

That sounds delicious...having a husband that cooks...Jen sounds awesome and what fun she put together for you all! I bet the non DISer offspring were uber jealous!

I know I heard Jen turning people away during the ToT- she had to explain it was a private event, not a Disney event.

The food at Topsiders looks good- I would gain 1000 lb with food available 24/7! I guess food is avaibale to me now 24/7 too.

The food was ALL really tasty on the cruise! You have to take the stairs!! My thighs were rock solid by the end of the week!

Love your green clippie streak in your hair- so cute.

Thanks!

I want the not-fit-to-post news.

That dude had like 2 cases of empty Coors Light bottles in front of him. Fun date.
He said he had help....but I'm not sure I buy that....

What a great job!! You must have a DAZZLING personality (in addition to being THIN) to have gotten it. Lucky you!

And I do really like Cozumel- I would love to go back!

If you do ever see that pom tequila, I would HIGHLY recommend buying it- it's AWESOME!!

And, thanks- I am REALLY looking forward to STJ!! One week from today!!

He got one- shopping with him is a MISERABLE experience, the second it starts, you are praying for it to end...

And the pic he took- I said to him, "Can you see the ship? Because it doesn't look like you are at the right angle..." He said , "Yea, I see the ship."

I MEANT THROUGH THE CAMERA LENS, PODS!!!!!

I think that my little dog Wicket would like that Pom margarita! (He's pomeranian) Just had to say that, may be corny, but I couldn't help myself!

He might also like a Poma Sutra (it's a yummy cocktail they make at a restaurant called Happy Fish where I'll be next Tuesday in STJ)! ( Really it's Pama Sutra, but I don't think anyone minds!)

Pirate Night!

As we got back on the ship, we noticed a LOT of people were hanging out on their balcomies, both on the Magic and on the Norwegian Dawn (HEY! That's the ship Pods & I had our unfortunate time-travel experience on!! If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and read my lengthy reply to Nenner1 about why I'll never use a cell phone to tell time aboard a ship again as long as I live! ). Anyway....after I had showered and gotten pirate-a-fied, I went out onto my balcony to watch us sailaway from Cozumel.





Well, I was out there alone (Pods was showering) and the very friendly passengers on the Dawn started yelling to me. How nice of them to keep me company....I was so lonely!! "How's the ship? Do you like Disney? Where are you going next? WOOHOOOOOO!" You know- the typical conversation you have between balconies of opposite ships.



They waved goodbye for a REALLY long time! Or maybe I was the one waving goodbye for a long time....something tells me I wasn't the only one who had a shot of tequila and a few Margaritas in Mexico, if ya know what I mean...





So long Mexico!





Next we were off to dinner- tonight we were dining in Animator's again! Here is the bread, cuban rolls with the spread (is it pigeon peas?)



Gabor, the Head Server, was still helping out our table on this night-



Tyler tries to figure out tonight's mystery smoothie from Yadira-



Both boys were wearing scarves from our FE- I am so sorry i can't remember who gave them, but we loved them! Thank-you!





Our appetizers came out in a decent amount of time. Tyler had The Buccaneer’s Sun Ripened Pineapple
Fresh Island Pineapple with a Coconut covered Banana and Orange Glaze



Pods decided to try Pearls of the Caribbean
Crabmeat, shrimp and salmon mixed in pearls of couscous with lemon grass infused vinaigrette-



And i had Blackbeard’s Jumbo Crab Cake
With a fruit Salsa and Honey-Lime Tropical Coleslaw



It was all good, but nothing outstanding. Timmy was skipping the appetizer this evening, and went right to the main event, which is pretty self-explanatory.



I believe Pods also ordered a salad-Mr Smee’s Bib Lettuce Salad
With Bibb Lettuce, Baby Greens, Chicory, Tomatoes, Toasted Pine Nuts, and Raspberry Vinaigrette



Once again, our food was coming out in a good flow- we really appreciated it. For the main course, Pods & Tyler were trying Jack Sparrow’s Barbecue Marinated Beef Short Ribs
Rubbed beef short ribs with tamarind-barbecue sauce served with onion red bliss mashed potatoes and plantain chip





I had Captain Hook’s Macadamia Nut-Dusted Mahi Mahi
Jasmine rice and sauteed pineapple on a mild curry sauce and i thought it was REALLY good!



I'll have to continue this later- the dinner bell is ringing for me to start cooking....
