So, did you party with the pirates all night then, after the day you guys had???????
Oh I would be so more than happy to share about 30 degrees or so with anyone who needs it right about now! It comes with bonus 100% humidity! W00t!

Well..some of us partied, some of us didn't... You'll have to wait to find out, (but not too long!)

Where did you get the cute dresses for your girls and the top for you that you tie dyed? I love the styles of both of them and thought I would do something similar for our cruise.
The red polka dot dresses are from Gymboree. They were park of the Poppy collection from last summer. The tie dye shirts and dresses I got from Dharma Trading company which is a textile company that I also got the dye from (it was highly recommended on the tie-dye threads and I have to concur that it was fantastic dye!) They have so many styles of shirts and other clothing to choose from, pretty much everything you could imagine! I totally recommend using Dharma for your tie-dyeing supplies, both dye and the dyeable clothing!

WOW!!! You were busy while I was away!!! I loved reading abouit our day at Nachi- it was like being there all over again. That Treasure Hunt looked like so much fun- what an awesome job those moms did! I remember when everyone was signing up for it, I was wishing my boys were little again so they could participate...not the first or last time I have felt THAT way!!

I wondered how you got Carlos- I had read about him on CC, too- we did not have him, and I don't recall the name of our waiter, but he hustled like nobody's business, since we were all the way to the end almost. I am so impressed Carlos had those sand toys for Sarah!!

Have to go- the boys need to eat early and I'm going out with some friends tonight. I left you a text message about the DISmom trip, so LOOK AT YOUR CELL PHONE!!!

I know what you mean, I look over at B and I can't believe it.

They really did an awesome job with the Treasure Hunt! I had a blast just watching it (when Sarah would let me)!

I'm so glad our fears about Nachi not being able to handle the volume were unfounded. I know some were disappointed with where they were placed on the beach but other than that I did not hear anything negative about the staff. All of the servers were really busting their butts.

I got it...you just do whatcha do, sista! I'll go with the flow! Do you need to add me to an ADR or will one bonus person be OK just showing up? I was thinking it would be alright, but if you are concerned we'll talk.

Yo Ho, Yo Ho!

As soon as we boarded the Magic after our fun day in Cozumel, we hit the showers.

Back in our room, we discovered the first of what would now be termed as our “daytime” towel animals! Our stateroom host Ryan was really great, and for the remainder of the cruise we would get twice-daily creations! What a special touch! Here, Sarah’s pillow and blanket crafted a butterfly:



The kids room had this guy, he looks remarkably similar to the space shuttle we got on the first day, but due to his horizontal orientation, we deduced that he was, in fact, a shark.





Brendan was the first to get ready and get out, since he was suffering from The Edge withdrawals. I was in the shower in our room, and was called by Ron as soon as I got out to come and look, so of course I came running out in a towel to see….us leaving- and everyone on the nearby Norwegian Dawn waving. They were so very close, you could see right in the ship. It was pretty cool until I realized that if I could see them….most likely they could see me, in my towel! So I retreated behind the privacy curtain to watch the rest of our departure!


Tonight, as you know, was Pirate night so there was no stage show. Instead they featured a move in the Walt Disney Theater. Tonight it was Secretariat, which did not really appeal to us, so instead we relaxed and took our time getting ready for dinner.

When we were all ready, we headed down to first pick up Brendan at the Edge. Here is what was going on down there that night:



Then we headed up to the Atrium. We had apparently just missed Jack Sparrow- after 4 cruises on DCL we *still* have not snagged that picture. I figured we could try to catch him at Castaway Cay, but when we saw the pictures of others with him in Shutters, Ron thought he was not a good likeness at all, so we decided to skip getting a photo with the not-very-Jack-looking-Jack this trip.

Next, we made a stop into Shutters to check out our pics. I can’t say enough about the wonderful staff in Shutters! They were so amazing! Stephanie and Claire were so taken by Sarah, they would carry her around the room and she would point at and name the characters, and then when they showed her a stock photo of the ship, she would sing the horn “Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Booooommmm!”, and they all thought it was so cute! Of course this would give us an opportunity to look at and discuss our pictures, and for that we were very grateful. We got the VIP treatment every time we walked in, even when it was crazy busy, and it was so impressive. THIS is the Disney service we’ve come to know and love!





And just like that, it was time to chow down! We were back in Animator’s Palate tonight.



The Podsnel family, preparing to pillage and plunder their meal. LMAO at the left side of the table over there. I guess boys will be boys, eh?



As you can see, aside from Savannah, who got most of her getup from the Treasure Hunt at Nachi, we weren’t too gussied up in Pirate Garb, so the bandanas were the perfect accessory!







Even Mickey was in on the deal:



First out was the killer bread: Johnny Cake (which was cornbread squares) with Pigeon Pea Relish. I could have eaten just this all night (and probably should have). The bread was so fresh, warm and crumbly, and the tangy black eyed pea relish was delish (if a bit difficult to “spread” i.e. dribble on top of your bread and get to stay there while you take a bite)!



Our appetizers were quickly out, Blackbeard’s Jumbo Crab Cake and Pirate Pot Stickers for Ron, and the Buccaneer Sun Ripened Pineapple for me:







And a little mid-course entertainment!



Service was moving well tonight. We skipped the soup/salad course, but our entrée’s were out quickly. Nothing new for the kids, Chicken Strips and Minnie’s Mini Burger.

Ron had the Jack Sparrow’s Marinated Beef Short Ribs with Tamarind Barbecue Sauce served with Onion Red Bliss Mashed Potatoes and a Plantain Chip.



I had the Castaway Chicken Breast rubbed with Pirate Island Spice, served with Rice and Beans and Fried Okra on a rich spiced glaze.



Our verdict on the meal… it was just meh. Ron said his ribs were just OK, and I did not care for my chicken at all. I had eaten it before on one of my previous cruises and didn’t like it then either, so I don’t know what possessed me to order it again, but I did. And my opinion didn’t change.

So here is where things went downhill a bit. Service slowed up, Sarah melted down, Savannah nodded out.



When the music started blasting for the dining room parade and limbo, none of the kids so much as lifted an eyebrow. Brendan was finally plodded out of his chair by Mahendra and Savannah had to be shaken awake by Passayu. But once they were up, they were UP!







Savannah did make it through the limbo before the music stopped but Brendan never made it around the corner. Either we just had a really popular limbo, or….they shortened it. A lot. That’s OK though. Thanks to Ellen for letting me slide by their table to take pictures! They had the best table location in all of the restaurants!

**Continued in next post**

Yo Ho, Yo Ho! (Part 2)

Speaking of melting down, Sarah did temporarily perk up finally, with the arrival of dessert:



And she isn’t the only one who enjoys Mickey Bars!!!



Check out these pirates! Arrr! (Joanie and Sam)



I’m pretty sure I had a Walk The Plank Chocolate Cake, though I have no pictures to prove it. It would be outside of my character to have passed on dessert, although stranger things have happened!

Sarah was pretty well over it, and when you have late seating you do have to move to get up to the party. So we left promptly after dessert and made a stop back at the room. Sarah was so beside herself at this point, I decided to stay with her and get her to bed, while Ron and the kids headed up to the Pirate Party.

The kids had a Dinosaur!



And the reincarnated swan/lobster/scorpion in the corner got new eyes (the old ones were quite tasty!)



And across the hall in our room, we also had this cool brontosaur, or maybe it's the Loch-ness monster. What was her name, Old Nessie?:





Ron and the kids headed up to deck 9, arriving fashionably late. The midship areas of decks 9 and 10 were a madhouse and for the actual party they were stuck next to the forward stack. It did not provide a very good vantage point for the party but it was very cool when the characters left and passed right by them up the staircase.

The party is still exactly the same as it has always been, no changes at all to the cast, characters, music or storyline. But seeing Mickey zip over the crowd and the fireworks erupt at sea is always thrilling!





After the party, when most folks were ravaging the buffet, Savannah joined Ellen for some fun dancing on deck!








Even Brendan joins in!



I love this pic, I’m sure Ellen will too!!! LOL!



After the party, Brendan was back to the Edge, and Ron and Savannah headed up to finish the last 2 floors of FE deliveries!






We were really looking forward to the next day- at sea-with no reservations, no appointments, and nothing on the schedule but relaxation and spontaneous fun!

Up next: Splashfest

Oh. My. GAWD.

Well, yea, I was VERY into it- I usually am, I guess that's how I roll, 150% effort, 2% talent.

I can't believe what a GREAT cabin steward you guys had!! Ours was sweet, and by the end of the day we always had a towel animal, but you reminded me that he usually got around to making up our cabin at 4 or 5:00....we'd go back during the day to get something (on sea days) and the room was still a mess. I think we must have been at the end of his rotation or something. Last time, I took a photo of our steward, she was awesome- and she was the next group down from us this time, Iwould be so envious of her tidy rooms whil;e I walked down the hall to my unmadeup cabin. This cruise, I can't even tell you the name of ours. Maybe he was new or something, and I also don't know if his english was not that great or if he was just on the shy side. There were other things, too, but he did always smile when we saw him, and that was nice.

I did have fun dancing with Savannah- she was so cute!

What awesome CM in Shutters! I seriously DCL CMs. I think they are so much better than WDW CMs IMO. I love how you took a family photo with them

for Ellen & Savannah dancing!

Thanks, they were literally done last minute, very late the night before we left. When I printed Sarah's I realized I was out of color ink, so I printed Sav's in B&W and it came out pertty good, but when I tried to re print SArah's in B&W, then I was out of black ink! So that's why Sarah's looks almost pink, it was supposed to be red.

That's a bummer that your steward was so ...well..unremarkable. It took Ryan a couple of days to hit his stride. I think the staff was really thrown off the first couple of days , I guess that inspection we had might have done it, IDK. But once he was on, he was rollin'! It was so cute, for some reason when Sarah saw him she would meow like a cat! It was hilarious! Totally cracked us up, and him too. No idea why she did that, he didn't look like a cat! But it was funny!!!

Oh they were absolutely wonderful!!! Can't say enough, practically my entire comment card gushed about them.

And the picture wasn't our idea, it was theirs!! Don't remember if it was Stephanie or Claire but one of them took what appeared to be their personal camera out from behind the counter (it was a Point & Shoot, not the usual Big Mama pro cameras they use, which is why I think it belonged to one of them personally) and a third CM in there took the picture, and I gave him our camera too since we were already posing! Isn't that just the best? They wanted a picture to remember US

I really, REALLY should have bit the bullet and brought Sarah up there kicking and screaming. Eventually she would have gotten into it, or fallen asleep. If we would have had the stroller with us, I wouldn't have hesitated for a second.

Love the picture of Savannah putting the gifts into our FE! The girls loved to race to the door to see if any pixie dust had appeared under the Fish! Jen, could you email me a copy of that photo? I'd love to put it in my scrapbook!

Our cabin guy was nice, but that was sort of it. I think he was new. He always said hello, but not much else. We did get one towel animal every day.

More than once, he was still in our room making it up when we returned to it. Waiting to get in didn't really bother me much, but once we were in the hall forever, he knew we were there waiting to get in and he kept leaving our room to do stuff down the hall. It was frustrating.

We had a bed rail for the bottom bunk for Michael, and our cabin steward kept tightly making up the bed and then putting the bed rail over the tucked in blankets, so that it was completely impossible to lift the blankets up for the kid to get under them....I can't imagine how our steward thought anyone could get into that bed. We had to undo the rail each night and then put it back up when the kid was in. Now, Michael is tall skinny little guy, but there is no way he could have gotten into that bed as is unless we flattened him like a pancake first!
