DAY 6 - May 19th, 2011 - Day At Sea #4 (Part 6)

DAY 6 - May 19th, 2011 - Day At Sea #4 (Part 6)









See! I told you I took a lot of pictures!

Once the show ended, we went to the Promenade Lounge. On the way, I took a picture of tonight’s dinner menu!



Disney Tunes Trivia was about to start in the Promenade Lounge, so we decided (well, James and I) to play! Mom and Dad were there for support, though! Out of a possible 45 points, we received 42. The winning team got 43! Bummer! We were so close!



After the game, we made our way to Parrot Cay for our dinner! The doors once again promptly opened at 8:30.



Tonight was the Villains menu and we were excited as we’ve never experienced it before.



For the first course, James and I got the cheese ravioli:


For soup, I got the sangria bisque and James got the blue cheese soup. For the main course, we both got the turkey dish. It comes with sweet mashed potatoes, which I don’t like, so I got mine with regular mashed potatoes.

Turkey with sweet mashed potatoes:


Turkey with regular mashed potatoes:


Next, it was dessert time!



My triple strawberry sundae:


James’ raspberry cheesecake and creme brulee:


The Villains chocolate ending:


As we were enjoying this meal, our servers said they missed us at our character breakfast. Ummm. What?! We told them according to our dining tickets that our character breakfast was scheduled for Monday (four days from now). They said it must’ve been a mistake as today’s breakfast was the last one! WHAT?! Since we dined at Palo the night before, they weren’t able to “remind” us at dinner. So, what happened?! Why were we missed informed yet again? I went upstairs and grabbed a dining ticket to show them what was printed on them. They felt so bad and once again mentioned that today was the last one. Our head waiter came over, apologized, then gave us a plate of chocolate covered strawberries:



Marianne still felt terrible, so she took it upon herself to make us napkin hats (like they do at the breakfast). I was the only one in our group who had experienced the character breakfast before, and it was so wonderful that Marianne went above and beyond to do that for us. We all got a good laugh and appreciated what our serving team did to remedy the problem (that wasn’t their fault). Now, I realize the we’re all adults with no children in our traveling party. However, we still enjoy the characters very much and we had every intention to attend our character breakfast, especially since it is included and we rarely sail on 7-night or longer cruises.

After that snafu, we found ourselves walking out of the restaurant at about 9:45 and we starting making our way to the lobby for the Villains Ball. Mom went over to Guest Services to tell them of the problem with our character breakfast. She wasn’t seeking anything...she just wanted them to be informed that there was an issue that they needed to be aware of. Plus, she said, she didn’t want this happening to a family with kids!

DAY 6 - May 19th, 2011 - Day At Sea #4 (Part 7)

DAY 6 - May 19th, 2011 - Day At Sea #4 (Part 7)

Just after 10:15, the Villains Ball began. It was fun to see and be a part of (and we love characters!).



































The Villains Ball lasted about 30 minutes and then we went back to our rooms for the evening. James and I played Phase 10 by ourselves and at about 12:00 (or 1:00 once we moved our clocks forward), we decided to hit the sheets! Tomorrow was shaping up to be an exciting day, so we better get some sleep!

Keep the trip report coming... Your pictures are amazing but I was wondering if you then end up not being able to enjoy the show since you are watching it through the camera.

I can not wait to read more about your trip. So jeously that we will never be able to take a 14 day cruise, but I live through all of you.

Thank you EVERYONE for all your kind words and compliments! I love reading people's responses! Since I had a new "fancy" camera, I definitely went picture crazy. Someone asked if I was able to enjoy the shows even though I was looking through a camera the whole time...the answer? Somehow, yes! Since I was familiar with most of the shows, I knew what I wanted to take pictures of, or knew when to set the camera down and enjoy a moment.

Wow....so glad you asked about this! I completely forgot to talk about that in my last update. I believe they offered that special twice on the cruise. The first time it was offered was on the day I recently added to the trip report (day 6). This is what was left on our bed that evening:



I believe this same special (or one similar to it) was offered again during the cruise, but I am unsure as to when exactly. I hope this helps!



I can't believe it's been 5 days since my last update! I feel like I JUST wrote that! Guess I better get to writing yet again...my how time flies!

We've used laundry service on DCL and while it's isn't inexpensive, it's an excellent "treat", and we budget it into our cruise expenses. Nothing like coming home from vacation with all clean clothes. LOL

I hope they offer that special on our 8-night next year.

P.S. Do you happen to have a copy of the normal laundry price list?? It's been several years since our last DCL cruise.
