Love the update! The video is precious!

Isn't the DREAM beautiful at night? We loved taking evening walks, especially when the first dinner seating and the first show were on. The ship was deserted

Can't wait for Palo!

On Tuesday, we had brunch at Palo! Before we went, I worked out in the gym in hopes of burning a few calories- but I'm sure I didn't stay there long enough!! Anyway, after my workout, I realized that my minimalist packing had one slight flaw- I didn't count on Palo brunch. Oops. Well, I scrounged up something, I guess, and off we went to stuff ourselves silly.

Cheers!



We totally scored here in the server department- we were lucky to have Marko, hubby of another favorite on the cruise, Alenka from Pink. Anyway, Marko took us on the tour of the buffet, beginning with the pizzas and entrees that could be ordered from him-











Then onto the buffet. He carefully explained each item- I was busy snapping pictures like a nut, so I missed most of what he was saying!























I am not close to done! So many pics- so much food, so little time...cont'd next post-

More and more-



















Is that an insane amount of choices, or what??? It was so hard to choose- yet somehow, we all managed. I think this was my plate-



This was mine, too. See? I told you I didn't work out long enough!!



We also ordered a grape gorgonzola pizza to share, and I had some veal marsala which was yummy-



This belonged to someone else-



Have to pick up Tim at the gym- back later with dessert!

And there's another yummy update!

Isn't Palo brunch so worth the $20 upcharge? It is one event, we definitely do NOT want to miss when cruising.

Thanks for giving me a little break between the savoury items and dessert. I need to digest ..........

Now, time to get me away from the Napkin Hat Dance, and back to my girl crush Alex "Ees not mojito bar, ees martini bar" in Skyline. A nice little after dinner cocktail....



"Gee Kara, you're right... this is waaaay better than the Princess Leia look."



Don't worry Peas, I'll have your back.

OMG! Funniest update ever! Plus I really enjoyed listening to the difference between Y'all and Y'all, but I with Cammie on the Jersey saying "forgetd about it".

Oh, and that food from Palo. WOW! I so hope I am able to snag a brunch reservation there. It looks amazing.

So happy I am finally getting a chance to catch up WITH pictures!

I can't wait until I am in Palo for brunch next year. we didn't get to experience that on the Wonder a few years ago. It was our first cruise and I was too nervous to know what to do and what not to do.

Well, drink some wine and relax! The brunch is great- to me, it was much, much better on the Dream than my last one on the Magic. I hope you'll go!

The brunch is awesome- definitely worth the time and money on a sea day.

We'll get it! Don't worry!! We will do what we did this year and head right to Palo once we are on board. They had lots of availability, we got our first choice for a time, even. I think they must really limit how many can be prebooked.

Your updates are cracking me up. Just got back from a girls trip with 4 rooms. 2 rooms had some snoring issues. Luckily not my room. I tried paulo dinner and was not impressed. Will be doing brunch in Nov. That looks better. Your brunch epics look amazing.

Hi girls! Thanks for the laughs! I will have to come back and watch the video - using DBILs wifi right now and I don't want to use too many Gigs. I don't know what's better - ITSK or Princess Ellen Leia. I think the princess looks like an elf - what a crazy server! After spending the weekend with my mom before I left, if I sound anything like her when I snore, you wouldn't put me on the other side of the curtain, you would throw me overboard!

Finally back and all caught up! Now that DS is in 2nd grade, more homework, the dog, DH's softball games, what a month!

Love the Palo brunch pics. If we do another cruise with the folks, i'm thinking DH and I will have to share this place. We did a dinner by ourselves last time. We'll have to booth DS to the kids place and and take the folks!

I like the brunch better than the dinner- and I liked the Dream brunch better than the Magic brunches I have been to. Glad we're making you laugh- the snoring thing is not the best, but it happens. No one in our cabin was horrible, well, except for Kara.

Yea- September is always a challenging month. So much new to get used to. I think next year will feel like nothing for me, tho, because I won't be the PTA Pres anymore.

Definitely do brunch, you won't regret it.

Well, you have been VERY patient, and I hope you are all digested and ready for dessert!







Somehow, we all managed to stuff ourselves a little further with some treats-





Our server, as we mentioned (or maybe as Kara mentioned) was FABULOUS, AND he was married to the lovely champagne pouring Alenka from Pink (which made us love him even more ). He also used to work on the Magic, and Kara went all nutty/obsessive on him for a bit discussing a server they both knew. We had to take his pic-



He suggested we all scoot over to another table for a group pic, and we were happy to oblige-



I have to say, I absolutely, hands down, preferred brunch on the Dream over brunch on the Magic. For one thing, the food (especially the seafood) seemed fresher to me- and of higher quality (again, the stone crab claws. On the Magic, I could never get a whole piece to come out of the claw- it always crumbled into tiny nothingness). Second, I thought the logistics of it was much better. On the Magic, those tables of food always seem like chaos to me- you're always rubbing butts with someone on the next table. Here that's impossible because the tables are against the walls. It just seemed to flow so nicely, I really liked it.

Well, after that food fest, we went back to the cabin and changed into swimsuits. Maybe stuffed or crammed ourselves into swimsuits is more appropriate here. Anyway, we headed back up, and as we walked to the glorious adult area, we had to pass THIS-



The dreaded 666 deck. I think we were walking next to this former CM (who OBVIOUSLY had played Peter Pan at some point in his career) and he mentioned something about walking as fast as you can and trying not to look. Yea- that area is great for families with multiple age kids- for adults? Not so much! Finally we arrived at serenity...although one of us was curious about somewhere else...



YES!



The ship was moving sooooooo slowly, heading from Nassau to CC, and there was not ANY kind of a breeze. It was too much for me without getting wet, so Kara and I went down to check out the pool. After attempting MANY different positions for ultimate cooling, we settled on this position as the coolest-



Although looking at the pic, it doesn't look all the COOL to me!

We noticed our favorite girl was at the Cove bar, she took that pic. Then I took one of her-



We LOVE our Alex!!! Here's a close up of our coolest position- in case you'd like to try it at home-



Yea, we crack ourselves up!





I came back to add, Kara and I decided the line didn't look too bad for the Aquaduck, so we went over to try it- it was SOOOO much fun, I can't wait to do it again!! I really want to try it at night, too!

We started to miss Joanie & Cammie, so we went back up to the adult only sweat- I mean, sun- deck. We were VERY happy to see this happy CM handing out frozen wash cloths-



Next time, I'm asking for extras, or maybe a frozen bath sheet. That might help. It is HOT up there on a slow sea day!

Up next- let's check out the art work and...looks like the champagne tasting is sold out- what do you think we're going to do about that?!
