I absolutely love your photos of CC. I never tire of seeing photos of there.

Your reports are getting me even more excited as I am doing the WBTA - taking the Magic home.

I am looking forward to your next instalments.

Thank you for sharing.

Love your TR.

Do you remember the last name of your Danish server?

We're from Denmark and think it could be funny to request her if she is working the WBTA.

Well, it actually wasn't that deserted. This was right around the "all aboard" time, so everyone was practically back on the ship.

I'm sorry...I'm afraid I don't remember. I can't give her enough praise though! Phenomenal server.

DAY 3 - May 16th, 2011 - Day At Sea #1 (Part 1)

DAY 3 - May 16th, 2011 - Day At Sea #1 (Part 1)

For whatever reason, we start waking up around 8:30 (kinda crazy considering we were up late for the movie...maybe we’re just too excited!). At about 9:30, we start getting ready, even though the alarm was set for 10:00. I call the wake-up call line since they also give the “current time” when you call. Surprisingly, it was the correct, one-hour forward time! So, I guess we’ll start utilizing this option since they appear to be on top of things. I also check the wave phones, and those have been adjusted appropriately.

At about 10:20, we start heading downstairs. As we turn to walk through Shutters, we see Mom coming out of Animator’s Palate! She was done with the scrapbooking event...what perfect timing! We head over to Lumiere’s for some brunch (mainly since our server, Marianne, would be serving). We requested to be seated in her section, and it was honored. She was so happy to see us!



I’m sorry to say I don’t recall what I had...I’m thinking I got french toast. I don’t really remember what anyone else had...silly me, I forgot to write it down. I know for dessert, the white chocolate and macadamia brownie pie was ordered by James:



Once we completed our brunch, we went over to Guest Services to sign up for some beverage tastings. James was interested in the martini tasting, and I wanted to do a beer tasting with Dad as a belated birthday present. So, we found times that worked for us, and got those two tastings set up! Around this time, a Princess Gathering was occurring in the lobby:











And then shortly after, we found ourselves walking by/in the shops.



Our progress, as shown on a TV outside the Walt Disney Theatre:



(I really wish I took more pictures of our progress and the sea conditions throughout the cruise...would’ve been neat to do it at the same time every day. Oh well.)

What shall we do next? Play games of course! So, we went to Diversions and ended up playing Scattergories until about 1:30. Then, Mom and Dad stood in line for wristbands outside Mickey Mates. (The wristbands were to guarantee a special transatlantic pin that would be released either the next day or the day after.) James and I proceeded into the Walt Disney Theatre for the Don “Ducky” Williams presentation! As we entered, he was already doing sketches. It started just after 2:00 and Mom and Dad arrived just in time with two wristbands in hand!

He talked about how he got started and was doing sketches to raffle off the whole time. (As you entered the theatre, you were given a raffle ticket.) He ended up doing about 23 or 24 sketches, and naturally, none of us won. It was such a wonderful presentation and I’m definitely glad we went! Here are some pictures from it:





















The presentation ended at about 3:00. We decided we were hungry, so we went upstairs to deck 9 to get some food! Chicken tenders and pizza sounded appetizing, so that’s what we got. We took the food back to the room, ate it, and then turned on the TV and just relaxed. I ended up falling asleep (and I think James did, too!). At 5:00, we started getting ready for the first formal night! It was going to be a purple night for the boys. We each had a purple shirt to wear with our suits!

At roughly 5:45, we were on our way downstairs to head to the theatre. On the way, I took a picture of a leak in the aft elevator lobby and the dinner menu:





Around 6:00, the doors opened to the Walt Disney Theatre (and yes, we were waiting right outside). We got “our” seats and waited for the show to start! Tonight was “Twice Charmed: An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story”. I saw it on my very first Disney cruise, and hadn’t seen it since. Everyone else hadn’t seen it before, so we were all very excited for the show! It started right at 6:30...Drizella slipped, there was a fall or two, and the pyro for Franco’s exit didn’t work. Other than that, it was a wonderful show. At times, though, I feel there is too much use of the projection screen. I took LOTS of pictures (shocking):

DAY 3 - May 16th, 2011 - Day At Sea #1 (Part 4)

DAY 3 - May 16th, 2011 - Day At Sea #1 (Part 4)

By 7:30, we were exiting the theatre. In the lobby, we got in line for a formal portrait. Afterwards, we went to the Promenade Lounge to chill before dinner and listen to Midtown. We saw lots of people with the same type of alcoholic drink, so at 8:15 we went on a mission to find it and get one! It appeared they were handing out drinks for free, so we followed a server coming out of Studio Sea with a tray full of drinks and got one! We think it was a Mai Tai, but we knew for certain that it was DELICIOUS...and you can’t beat FREE! After getting the drink, we entered Lumiere’s and found our table.

Free drink:


Dinner menu:




Restaurant interior:




Tonight was another enjoyable meal and our servers continued to be ever so fantastic! Who wants to see food pictures?!

Scallops:


Cheese souffle:


Potato and sausage casserole soup:


Beef Wellington:


Lamb:


Dessert menu:




Chilled chocolate souffle:


Lemon cheesecake:


Sweet temptations trio:


We completed the meal at about 9:30 and we went back to our room and found this:


Another hour forward tonight! We turned on “Megamind” at 10:00 and by 10:45 we were asleep. I think I could get used to all these sea days in a row! What will tomorrow bring?...

Thanks! That's one of the main reasons why I got a better camera...I love taking pictures of the shows, and my old one just wasn't cutting it.

I am just loving you trip report. It is great to see you traveling with your parents. I love traveling with my Mom. She is my best friend and traveling with her is making great memories for when traveling with her will not be an option as she has early alzheimers.

Love your pictures and sense of humor. Cant wait for more.
