As I mentioned it before ....... that's the way I like it ........... an update before I go to bed and ........... hopefully one, when I get up!

Thanks Ellen! Great review of Pirate Night. I really love the fun of it, even though we missed the Animator's Palate transformation because of Pirate Night during our first cruise.

Hope you went up on deck to watch the fireworks - my favourite part of the evening, closely followed by the Pirate buffet, now that I have discovered it!

Martinis and Naughty Mud Love? I have to take a Disney Cruise. You have to help me plan it Do you use points or pay cash or can you do some of each? With 5 of us our stateroom options would be limited and super spendy I am guessing? Realistically it wouldn't be 2013 or 2014 but it appears from what little I have seen is that they book rather quickly.


I have to take a Disney Cruise! Our friends from here (Utah) are leaving for one next Sunday- Mexico I believe.

So Michael, my DH just asked what I was doing and I told him reading the best trip report ever but for a Disney Cruise. He said: and so it begins.


You and your family look amazing on fancy schamncy night. Love the dress, love the tuxes, fabulous!

Pirate Night Cont'd

Sorry about that! Ok...back to dinner...







Out came the dessert menu-



And Tyler announced he was full, and going back to Edge. Pods & I were also full, so we skipped dessert, too (I know, I'm SO SORRY!!!! I am especially regretting this right now because I wish I would have tried Pirates of the Caribbean's Sweet Temptations
A trio of Shiver-me-Timbers white chocolate cheesecake , rum barbossa, walk the triple layered chocolate gangplank cake....

.....But I did not. But Timmy is THERE for you guys! Please try to control your excitement.... He had....

Vanilla Ice cream with Sprinkles.



We are the WORST!!! Just in case you need another shot of vanilla ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth...



And now, for your viewing pleasure, I give you Pirate Pods. ARGHHHHHH!



OMG...that pic just cracks me up!!

The limbo contest started, and those servers were soooooo into it!! Lucky us, we had the perfect seats at table 75! Too bad we don't know any of these people, but maybe YOU do!!















As soon as Tim finished his ice cream, 45 minutes later (Timmy is the world's SLOWEST eater), he, too, announced he was going back to Edge.



WHAT???? What about the Pirate Party?? The dancing?? The pilaging?? The plundering?? The fireworks??

MICKEY MOUSE?????????????????????????

He says, "Yea...um, uh...I don't think so."


Don't worry- we still wanted to be pirates (well, at least I did. Pods just kept saying, "But I don't WANNA be a pirate!")

Aaahhh, Seinfeld. Funniest show ever, the lines never get tired.

Ok, so back to the room for a minute before (although I have no idea WHY...maybe a pit stop?) and we were happy to meet THIS guy- my favorite towel animal of the week-



He just has so much personality, doesn't he?



I decided to try to be just like him....



But I don't think i can pull it off.

Up next...time to line dance by myself with all the strangers...or will I actually KNOW someone this time? OOOhhhh, the suspense must be KILLING you!!

I am caught up baybee!

I love the idea of spending the day in port at an AI resort vs doing a ton if sightseeing but I am a lazy girl who likes to explore the beach, bar, and pool.

The food looks truly delicious and for DH who is a major foodie, this will be an important selling point fa sho!

What are FE gifts?

How long was your cruise? It seems like you got a good mix of relaxation and party time aside from the kid bellowing in the cabin near yours.

That pineapple looks amazing. I am a hooker for a decent piece of grilled/baked pineapple.

Ooooh a dancing Ellen moment again!!! Can't wait!!
Dinner looked like a blast and tasty too!
I LOVE your pictures of the other cruise ships at night.....the colors on them and the sky are just brilliant! Very postcard like Even though they ARE "other" cruise ships they look cool
You must be getting so excited to leave this snow and stupid weather behind!

Well, I am trying my best to stick to the Austrian clock, but , as you may have read, I'm not so good with time changes...

Thanks Ellen! Great review of Pirate Night. I really love the fun of it, even though we missed the Animator's Palate transformation because of Pirate Night during our first cruise.

That's another one of the benefits of a 7 night- you get 2 nights (at least) in each restaurant- the show night, and then one of the "special" nights. I never realized that if you were in AP for a "special" night, you would miss one of the shows on the Bahamas cruises.

Hope you went up on deck to watch the fireworks - my favourite part of the evening, closely followed by the Pirate buffet, now that I have discovered it!
Well, just because I can't find dessert doesn't mean I can't find the fireworks!!

Oh you soooooo have to take a Disney Cruise, and i will be soooo happy to help you with whatever you need! This time we paid cash, because when you rebook onboard, you get a break on the deposit AND they take 10% off....but the first time, we used points- for Pods & I, and then paid cash for T&T, so yes, you can mix it up- you just have to book the whole thing through DVC MS. We have booked again, on board on cash, but with a dummy date, because we can't cruise again until 2013 probably. BUT....if we had wanted to rebook onboard using points, we would have paid the cash deposit, and then they give you like 3 or 4 days to call DVC and then you get the discount on the points, too. . Some book fast, others not...it really depends on when you're going. And soon there will be 4 ships instead of just 2...so that's going to be a BIG change.

I have to take a Disney Cruise! Our friends from here (Utah) are leaving for one next Sunday- Mexico I believe.

I would love that cruise- a few days at DL, and a Mexican cruise on the Wonder...WOOHOO!!!

The Mahi Mahi looked so good!

I love the idea of Pirate Night - so fun. Are most people dressed up?

PS - I really love the dancing banana.

Yumm-O your dinner looks delicious, even without dessert! So funny Timmy went for the pizza and fries, and the vanilla ice cream!!! I love the marathon dessert time!

You are quite the sexy pirate wench! Pods is looking almost like he's trying out for Sons of Anarchy! Which is good. On pirate night.

Heading for Vegas tomorrow - don't have too much fun without me!

Thank you for the update and sticking to my routine! ......... so, can I expect an update before I go to bed?

I really like your pirate update! You are a very good looking bandana family! ..... and it looks like you had a lot of fun.
You should have tried the pirate dessert sampler ...... guess who ordered it on their cruise?

No, they don't change the colours of the restaurant during pirates night at Animator's Palete on the 3 and 4 night cruises. We had dinner at Palo on our AP night and the next one was the pirates night and we never got to see the restaurant change from black and white to colour.
So last time we were determined to see it and guess what - we had Palo booked on AP night!!
But we did get to see it in the end.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Oooo, Margaritaville looks great! Obviously the kids were having a good time! The pic pods took of you guys looks like something I've seen before from my family members! They are notorious for cutting heads off, but I have to say, DH is good at taking pics to NOT do that. Love the pirate scarves! Pirate night dinner looked like fun! I can't wait to read about the pirate party! Oh, and DD said Timmy's ice cream looked good to her! She's not one to go outside the box though.

Christmas was AMAZING!!! Telling MIL about the cruise was the best gift we gave or got this year. She retires at the end of the month and was kinda bummed out about life, but this has made her happy and given her something to look forward to and plan. Now we just have to wait such a long time until we go.
