Character-A-Thon!

After we showered, DD and I went to take pictures with as many characters that we could. This was the time in the cruise that if you mixed any characters was your final chance to get a photo op. I must say that we did not get a picture with Captain Mickey and we were disappointed. We also failed to get a picture with Tianna.





Looking at the pictures, we only did a couple characters before DD wanted to go to the kids clubs. DS was long gone back to the Edge. He did not want to take pictures with any of the characters. I dropped her off then headed back to the room to drag DH away from the TV. We decided to go up and get a drink for him and a soda for myself. We sat and enjoyed each others company for awhile.


We could not believe that our first cruise was coming to a close. We watched the horizon and took notice of other ships in the distance. After about an hour or so, I went to guest services to get the tickets for the tips. I was able to walk right up to the counter with no wait. After that I headed back to the room to start to pack. I left out our dinner clothes and disembarkation clothes. After that I headed back to the kids clubs to pick DD. She was happy to leave the club, about an hour or so is all that she could take. We decided to do the Detective Agency at this time. It took us about 30 minutes to complete it. We really enjoyed it and found parts of the ship that we would not have found otherwise.

Great character pictures! I always love pictures of vacation toes. LOL! It just conveys how relaxed a vacation can be!

Boo for the end of the cruise.

That quality time is few and far in between. That is why I am so ready for our July cruise for just the two of us. We are not going to know what to do with ourselves.

What a wonderful report. You do such a good job describing the excitement each day. Also love how you just find your "happy place" and don't let the little things turn into major squabbles. Looking forward to the rest of your report.

Last night, Goodbye DREAM!

After we finished the Detective Agency, we headed to Flo's to grab a snack before dinner. We finished there and went to the room where DH was once again watching TV. We lounged around for awhile, then I decided it was time to pick up DS from the Edge. We did not make it to a show this night either(running theme for the Young family). We all got dressed and headed to down to lounge in one of the areas before dinner.




(We have to work on DS picture taken skills, almost cut me out the picture)

We sat there about 30 minutes and people watched before we headed to Animators Palate.



Dinner was good this night as well and we were happy that we were seated close to one of the interactive screens. Sadly we didn't get a personal chat with Crush. It was fun trying to guess the shapes that the school of fish were making themselves into.





That was only a few of them from the show. After dessert was becoming apparent that I first cruise was drawing to a close and I was so sad. We said See Ya Later to our wonderful wait staff and handed out tip tickets. After we left dinner we headed back to the Atrium to get more pictures.





We did not get as many character pics that we wanted, hey we have next time. Can't remember the rest of the nights events, but we were all sad for it to end. We went to bed and when I woke up the next morning we where right back where our adventure began. We didn't eat breakfast on the ship that morning, so we joined the herd and disembarked the DREAM! Customs was a breeze and getting out of the garage was as well. Well thanks to everyone that joined in on our first cruise. Next TR's will be from 5 night Dream July 2012(just DH and I), then 7 night Fantasy July 2013( DH, myself, DD, DS and maybe DGM). UNTIL NEXT TIME!
