Cabana's Welcome Aboard Buffet Part 3






























Sorry, I can't give you any feedback on the taste because I didn't partake of the buffet...I went and had this...




But I will say that other than the aft elevator location, Cabana's is a HUGE improvement over Topsiders/BBB. There was tons of selection, lots of tables, loved that you didn't have to wait in one huge line!!! I read on someone else's trip report that they didn't like that they seated you but you don't HAVE to be seated. They do offer "Can we find a table for you" but I always said no and then just grabbed my food (breakfast only) and then picked a table I want

Next up....Breakfast at Cabana's

Oh dear lordy! - just put 7lb on just looking at the photos

Is it really sad that I got over excited over the blue cheese crumbles

It looks a vast improvement on topsiders

Cabanas Breakfast Buffet Part 1

I was able to enjoy two meals here while on board and I just LOVED it!! I got up very early every morning to take sunrise pics so I was able to get to Cabana's as soon as they opened.

Both times I took my breakfast outside and watched the gorgeous horizon while I ate in peace and quiet. I must say it was one of my favourite times on the ship.

For those of you who don't follow my blog or know me on a more personal level... I have Lupus (SLE) and this past May, I came down with Lupus Pneumonia, was hospitalized and on Mother's Day, my husband was told that I was more than likely going to die. By some miracle, I survived that horrible ordeal and it has changed my life in many different ways.

Not being able to breathe and having to fight for a breath of air has really made me appreciate my lungs and how they work to keep me alive. I don't take a single day or breath, for granted any more.

I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to be sitting there, on that glorious new ship, eating a delicious breakfast that I didn't have to cook, breathing in the ocean air.

I am so lucky I got to do this trip and even though everything didn't run smoothly, I soaked it all in! Even though I got tired, I tried to take advantage of every moment that I had on board...taking tons of photos, videos, watching sunrises and sunsets, enjoying the entertainment and just trying to notice all the small details...it's what Disney is best at, after all.

So before I post the food porn....I just wanted to share with you that one little moment of peace and serenity...





OK, let's get on with the food porn!!! LOL!

Cass, just 'Wow', what a story . Sure puts a different outlook on life when you overcome such a serious illness. I've 'virtual travelled' with you on many trips and usually don't post but just wanted to send you a hug .

Cabana's Breakfast Buffet Part 3

Just a few more shots that I couldn't get in the last post...










I really enjoy the breakfast there, the food was really good, way better than Topsiders! They also had more selection than Topsiders too!

The doors to get to the outside part though are very heavy and hard to open especially if you are carrying a plate and drink! I love that you don't need to carry around a whole tray and that the silverware and napkins are already on the tables

Next up....Lunch at Cabana's

nope...not done with Cabana's yet lol

These food pictures are amazing. I need to eat about 12 times a day to eat all I want. LOL!
Do you know, was Enchanted Gardens Welcome Aboard buffet, pretty much the same food?

Dear Cass, your trip report is amazing. I was becoming concerned about going. I am easy going but my DH - not so much. You are making me excited once more. I look forward to reading your review of the kid's club. My 4 year old is extremely excited.

Wow, is there anything you didn't take a picture of? j/k

Great pictures, keep em coming....

Love the view from your railside table. With a view like that, I wouldn't care what they had to eat.

Cabana's Lunch At Sea Day

While I didn't eat there...I did take photos! It looked really good though and I was shocked at the variety!

Michelle did have it and I think she said it was good...maybe she can chime in here.











































The lovely Corinne is back there!













Next up....Pirate Buffet....at Cabana's LOL!

In my house right now, the big debate is where to go for Spring Break 2012. The current argument is a Disney cruise versus a trip to Europe and OH MAN am I slowly being converted to the cruise! GREAT report, I love how you tell everything from your perspective and highlight that it's just that: YOUR perspective! This is a wonderful report, thank you for sharing!
