Hi Ellen, I am still enjoying your cruise TR so much! I was thinking about doing a four day cruise on the Dream, but your TR has me thinking that really a one week cruise would be much nicer and since I am not thinking about a cruise before 2012, this could even be on the Fantasy... I just wish they would release the 2012 October schedule soon!!

Did I read that you said they took the Flying dutchman away? I'll have to go back and re read that.

SooooSAD!!!

What a great incentive to exercise - go watch the ship sail away.

It is fun in that gym- I'd be skinny skinny SKINNY if I could workout there everyday!!

Love the sunset pictures and, just between you and me, I wouldn't have noticed the difference between CC and Key West.

Last Day - Oh No!

I think I have stirred some interest among the East meets West gals. I think Tracy, Cynthia, and I are probably most interested. As far as the soccer moms ...pfffft.....I can't even get them to read the email I sent about an October trip.
I am sooo glad!! It will be so great!!

I didn't know they had removed the Flying Dutchman!!!!!!! What a shame! It made for some cool photos!

BTW - I LOVED your CC update! So many fond memories!
Well....all good things must come to an end...although, I have never really understood WHY!!

Do you get to go home alot? Just wondering....

Hey- I had only one KKooler, so that's why the gym was an option!

thats just ubber sad but glad we got to see it at least once. Any word on what may or may not be replacing it.
That's how I feel- and I'm lucky we saw it twice....I hope they do replace it with something....maybe the Black Pearl???

Hi Magdalena! I wish they would release those 2012 dates, too!! The suspense is killing me! But I'm not sure I'd be cruising with my family on DCL until 2013 anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter all that much.... HOWEVER....I realized after all this DREAM excitement the past few weeks that I don't think I can wait, so.....I think DISmoms 2012 may be a 4 night on the Dream! We are looking at May 6th....It would be great to have as many DISpeeps onboard as possible, I think we will have a blast!!!! Maybe you could get a cabin, too?

Til We Meet Again Dinner

So here we were at our last dinner of the cruise. Already. It goes SOOOOO fast!! We were back in Lumiere's, and service was great! Timmy ordered Grilled Chicken Satays
with a mint-yogurt sauce and spicy cucumber salad -



I don't think he even had a bite! No idea why, though....it looked yummy. Tyler went with Chilled Seafood Medley
Lemon shrimp, smoked salmon tartare and marinated bay scallops





I had Sesame Crusted Tuna Sashimi, Wakame Salad and American Caviar
with pickled ginger wasabi and soy sauce



This was EXCELLENT! I remember having something similar on the last cruise, and it was not good at ALL. This was perfect, though, and if you are a tuna fan, then THIS is for YOU!! Tyler enjoyed his Smoothie du jour...



And my healthy hubby had Romaine Leaves with Artichoke Chips
served with a roasted bacon-wrapped date, and Caesar dressing



Yadira was so sweet with Tyler...


Both Tyler and I chose the same thing for dinner- Seafood Linguini Pasta
Lobster, scallops, shrimp, clams and asparagus-white wine sauce-



Yummy, yummy, yummy, one of my favorite entrees of the trip! Young Tim hadGrilled Beef Tenderloin
served with William potatoes, asparagus spears, baby vegetables and bearnaise sauce



Pods decided on Garlic and Rosemary Marinated Lamb Sirloin
with onion, leek, potato gratin and sun-dried tomato jus



Tyler really enjoyed his pasta, maybe a little too much-



It was time for Baked Alaska, and the waving of the flags-









He was very entertaining, especially later that night....


For dessert, Pods ordered a Mickey Bar-



But I think the boys had already gone back to you-know-where, and I must have skipped it. Oh well... I'm glad someone at the table was smart enough to order one while he could!

Up next...the end of the night in Rockin Bar D!

Ally has seen all the pics of the Flying Dutchman, and of course she loves all the Pirates movies...... so I'm thinking of telling her that someone slipped Pods a Beverly on the cruise, while at CC, and he got so mad that he threw his glass overboard and it hit the FD and sunk it........ Hope she's proud of her little escapade at Club Cool now!!!!!

How sad, the last meal....

I think it is funny that they do the baked alaska on the Disney cruise line! When I was a kid there was this series on TV here in Germany called "Traumschiff" (dream ship) it was about a cruise line ship that would go to places all over the world and while the crew always stayed the same, the cruises would change and go through all kind of stories during the course of the cruise. And it always ended with the last night dinner with servers marching in with "fireworks" on the dessert! I really wanted to experience that one day and tried to convince my parents very hard that we would need to go on a cruise!! Later I realized that these old fashioned cruise ships would have been the most boring place to be for a 10 year old. Formal dinner every night!

That sounds interesting!! I don't think May would work for me, but since I am sure that I will not go on the one for which I still have a deposit put down, I might investigate to move the deposite to the May 6th cruise...

I was always fascinated by Baked Alaska when I was a kid....I felt like if I ever went to a restaurant that had Baked Alaska for dessert, well, that would HAVE to be the fanciest, bestest restaurant EVER!! I could not understand how the ice cream didn't melt- it seemed so magical to me!!

And yes!! Investigate the May 6th cruise!!! It would be sooooo fun!!!

Very happy! Pleased as punch, as a matter of fact!

But, really, Kara...let's be honest here. She is YOUR daughter. We all know Skid row was always just one sippee cup of Beverly Cola away....

Let's go to RBD!

We left Lumiere's, and passed by all the characters saying goodnight to everyone. I still didn't see the goodnight kiss on the stairs, but that's ok- it would only make me more sad on the last night. The characters were out in full force though, meeting and greeting all over the place-



Cindy is still my favorite. I can only begin to imagine what it must be like for all these little ones to meet their heroines on the ship- I know when I was a little girl, I would have gone out of my mind to meet Cindy!!









Then we were at-





We were going to RBD- the last night some of the more...outgoing.... crew put on a show ....we have seen it twice now, and it never fails to make us laugh! You REALLY have to go to this, especially if you never have before!



That dining room guy I pointed out earlier is the tennis player...






When they were finished, there was dancing, but, unfortunately, it was dancing to the WORST band EVAAAAARRRRRRR....so we left. It was so awful we just couldn't take it!! We did stop in Diversions to say goodbye to the bartender and the staff in there- they had been so friendly on the cruise. Then it was time for a little mousey lovin'.....



And back to the cabin...



The last lone magnet, all my others I had already packed-


I did a little more packing up of our carryons, and we got the boys- who were not too pleased, either.



Up next...the crappiest breakfast ever....

Cannot believe it's over!!

Pub night, MAN I wish they would do it at a different time, we are always SO busy getting the luggage taken care of...we have still not seen it yet.

So am I thinking we did the right thing by blowing off breakkie?

NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It can't be over!!! I want MORE!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the update! Great photos of food ...... yum, yum!! Now, I bet you did not expect THAT remark!

Actually I loved your last evening, sorry about the baaaaaad band. We did see the farewell greeting of all the performers and characters last time and it was nice, but actually if you have seen it once .......

Isn't it sad the last night when your suitcases are already out the door and you are just left with packing up the bare essentials? I HATE that night!

Oh, and I can relate to your crappy breakfast, even if I haven't seen it yet! Been there, done that ...... dreading the next one!

Hope you're going on another trip REAL SOON!!!!!!!!!!

You have GOT to make it to that last night next time...even if it's just to see that show, it is hilarious!

And yea, you are not missin' much if you miss that breakfast- well, except saying goodbye to your servers. The whole thing just equals one GIANT crappy mood! I hate the end!!! Even going to Vero or WDW does NOT HELP!
