Snoozin while Crusin - An adult perspective
Not a trip report only random thoughts by two empty nesters:
Before this cruise, we had only cruised the Magic and Wonder. Our only exposure to complete surrender to sleeping in public was Deck 4 on those wonderful blue loungers. We succumbed right away to this location on our Fantasy 9/22/2012 Eastern cruise. Little did we know we were about to find more options. We purchased a one-day Rain Forest Pass on line before we left. After running around like a couple of fools experiencing each shower, we enjoyed the hot tub and view. Next we found the warm tile loungers and it was curtains for us for an hour. AHHH - what an experience. I felt as though my whole body turned to liquid. DH and I could not move, we were absolutely relaxed and in a jelly state!!
Deck 4 and the warm tile loungers we discoverd are a training ground for total relaxation. The ultimate was the round, couch like chairs outside the Quite Cove Cafe facing the ocean. There is the perfect breeze and view. The sound of the ship moving through the ocean and the most comfortable chair I have ever experienced. It defies you to stay awake. We did not.
DH and I were on a quest. We then fell asleep on loungers in the Satellite Falls area, facing the ocean - once more facing the pool. We were on a roll. We then fell asleep in The Quite Cove Pool area. Perhaps our fellow dishers saw us. My DH was the one with his mouth open. Maybe mine was too?????
This was the most relaxing cruise we have every had. In between naps, we did experience Goofys' mini Golf - very cute. We played Shuffleboard - DH beat me EVERY game. We played MidShip Detective - Genius !!! The AquaDuck was a blast - tried it day and night. We played in the pool and Satellite Falls. One day the ship was rocking and we were tossed around Satellite Falls - it was great. We enjoyed the Quite Cove Cafe, Remy, Palo and each MDR. Enchanted Garden was a real surprise. We loved it.
We also saw the shows - every one fantastic and watched a few movies. We did not fall asleep in the theaters. The entertainment was just too terrific.
One evening we sat at the family pool and watched "The Little Mermaid" on Funnel Vision. What an experience - to see a film about the ocean and then look around and see ocean everywhere. LOVED IT !!
We enjoy children and loved seeing the excitment of all. So many dressed up and absolutely adorable. It is funny, though to be in the adult area and then pass into the family area. It's sort of like traveling through a portal into another dimension. Enjoyable but so very different.
Any questions, just ask away. We're home and wide awake.
Give thanks in all things
Always planning for the next trip
