Continued from post at bottom of previous page.

All 3 of us headed out of the room. We went to look at the shops area. This was not open yet, but I wanted to see what it looked like.



I really loved the window displays.







Look how cute the door is too.



A special shirt for this cruise&there were actually 2 and I liked the other one better but both were too pricey for me.



I took a peek in through the window && I spot Dooneys!











I had to get some shots of good old Walt. Something learned on a tour later in the week &.there is something missing from this famous picture &.do you know what it is?





Brook took a picture of Lisa and I.









I then decided to give Claire a call. I didnt mention this, but in the morning I had called Skip, and he had said he ended up going to my Moms and getting Claire last night. I guess he was already getting lonely. So she spent the night with him and my Mom came over around 9 or so and picked her back up this morning.
Claire wasnt too talkative. She was busy playing, but we said I Love Yous and I told her I would try to call if I could, but I might not be able to. She was doing fine and told me about some of the fun she had had already. They had gone to a movie the day before and my Mom was keeping her very busy &.or vice versa!

A few more pictures randomly around the area. I think I mightve taken some of them while I was on the phone.





I stepped outside and looked at deck 4.





I liked to call this the Titanic deck. It just made me think of the movie so much with the look of it.



And back in again.



More shop windows.

We saw the staff painting, polishing and buffing every day. I think the only truly "tired" things we saw were some very high traffic areas in some of the stateroom hallways.

They changed the age setup in the kids areas right before we sailed, as the big argument at the time was worries about older children not getting along or bullying the younger kids.

When we went in March DS was age 6 and 99/100ths (he turned 7 the day we left the ship). He preferred the club, but went back and forth to the lab several times. They just texted us on the wave phone so we knew which room to pick him up at! I never knew there was a secret tunnel!

He liked the club better, as he was more into the climbing and sliding and physical activities they had there. But he loved both (more than hanging out with the parentals!).
I think most prots do have that industrial look. PC is just really nice.

I think the club would've been what I preferred too...I mean Claire.

Great updates!
I love the pics of the kid spaces. Makes me want to cruise with little kids! I'm just stuck in that phase of life with kids to big to be kids, and a LONG time until grandkids (let's hope!). Also, the bars and lounges. We were all about early dinner-show-stroll on deck-back to the room. Next trip...
First I loved that you guys got tickets for Tea with Alice, then I laughed when you were so relaxed that you relaxed right through it! We relaxed right through Formal Night on our cruise, didn't even "wonder" why all those other folks are so nice and dressed up!
What are you planning for your November FE? Probably it's a secret...
Keep it coming!

The Edge on the Magic looks so different from The Edge on the Wonder. Both this and Vibe is on my to do list for the first afternoon.

I love the t shirt even though orange is not really my colour. What colour was the other t shirt? The new Dooneys had me drool. I celebrate my birthday on the Magic and I am kind of hoping that DH will get me one with the names of all the ships.

I love the window decorations, too. The one with the skull is my favourite.

Walt is missing his cigarette!

Loving the pictures of the ship, I'm really rethinking the whole cruise thing. I want to travel on that ship!

By the time you are done with this and your Nov TR, I will no longer be wondering what the cruise ships look like, I will have seen every square inch!

Too bad you missed your Tea, was it a show or an actual Tea?

I'm loving all your pictures!! Well except those of the gross water and all the industrial stuff around the port. We sailed out of New Orleans this summer and it looked like that too - just kind of yucky when you are used to PC!

The Magic's Titanic deck looks just like the Wonder's! I remember sitting on that deck 12 years ago to make a phone call home. It was the only place on the boat I could get a cell phone signal!

I'm loving all these pics as well! I've seen quite a few things I've never seen before. Loved the kids club shots.

Question on the Dooney's -

I had heard that the sketch Dooney's were no longer available, but the picture is showing some large satchels. Does this mean there are some available with the sketch designs?

Thanks!

I started officially packing today. I didn't get too much done, but at least it is started.

I wish I could've seen the Vibe. The one on the Dream is so new and modern. I am sure it's completely different on the Magic.

I resisted the Dooneys....for now.

Thanks. How exciting. I could cruise every month if my wallet allowed me.

Funny because a facebook friend asked me if I missed anything on the ship...and then she said...well probably didn't get under the bed....which is true...My new mission on the Dream!

It was a bit liek the wonderland tea party....I think
