I might have been tempted into a drink. They like very good.

The horns are awesome.


Oh and John videos everything in our family and he is bad at it. Butt shots(hopefully not in purpose) ground shots, and too much movement. I'd do it but then i can't take pictures.

One time I had Claire run video fro ma tripod...it was perfect. She panned at the right times, etc. I will need to get her practiced up. LOL

Did they have any t shirts or other merchandise that was special to Texas or Galveston as a port? We sail on the Magic next week and I am hoping they will.

Yes. I posted one picture when I posted some shop windows. Here is another view. They had 2 shirts that I saw. I liked the off white one better, but it came bundled with a hat, and I am not a hat person, and the price was too much for just a shirt and to toss the hat aside.

The sail away party looks exciting. I loved seeing all the characters come out. Even though I've never been on a cruise that horn gets me every time. but happy tears!

I really enjoy the Sailaway Party more on the classic ships. Not a huge fan of the one on the DREAM.
Oh, and did I mention that I LOVE your pictures?

The sail away party does look very different than the one on the Dream, I seriously have to get down to Galveston for a cruise! It seems so stupid not to go when it is so close!

It's just such a special horn, I think it can get to any good Disney fan.

It was a fun party, and like I said, I still haven't had a real "Dream" one yet. And guess what. Last I looked, rain is forcasted for the day we port the Dream.

Thanks. I took a lot this trip.

You should try and make it over there. I was very happy with the whole cruise and Galveston was a great port. Not PC great, but they did a good job with trying to learn Disney ways.

As we were about to sail away, Lisa said she was going to go inside because it was so hot. I told her I was just going to stand at the railing and watch us go. Well waitShe said she better not miss this too and she stood out there with me and we just had such a nice time watching us leave the real world.
I totally enjoyed it. If you read my trip report about our Dream Cruise, you know it rained that day .very hard, and the sail away party was inside in the Atrium. It was also at a later time because the ship stayed late to let passengers who had flight delays because of the bad weather able to make the ship. (Ironically I had the same experience on the last NCL ship I sailed too) We left late and we didnt start moving till it was time for us to go to the first show, which I did not want to miss, so all we saw from our balcony was us moving away from the dock.





Lisa and I hung towards the back of the ship and we were practically alone back there.





We were making news!



We first watched them untie us.







We did lots of waving!









And we blasted the horn once more if I remember right.









We did walk from side to side at times to take it all in.



Lisa and I both grew up on farms and then married farmers, so we had to get a picture of all the tractors lined up.



Lisa told me to be sure to get a picture with the John Deeres and combines in it.



While we were standing there, we noticed that the windows into Palo looked like a mirror and we easily each lost 20-30 pounds while looking at ourselves in them. We wish we could walk around with those reflecting our images all the time. It doesnt take much to excite us.







I was so amazed at how many ships we saw out at sea.

And I really liked this sail boat.







And we then decided to head back to the room and relax a bit, get showers and get ready for the show.

We showered and just hung out and watched the world go by on our balcony.
I remembered to take a picture of the goodies inside of the bag.



We then headed off to the show &.All Aboard, Let the Magic Begin.

This is the Disney Magic Performers&A.K.A. the cast that would be entertaining us at the main shows, and also a comedian, David Williamson and a Venquilotrist, Lynn Trefzger. The performers had a small storyline and then the other entertainment would come out.
I really enjoyed the show. I am at such a lost that we can no longer take pictures of the shows though. I love taking pictures of things like this, and I was soooo tempted, but I refrained. The Comedian was really funny and brought kids up on stage. The Venquilotrist was good, but she kind of over did her 2 things and it became a little too long.
We were happy to see the show and Lisa got her first taste of what a Disney show is like ......and she liked what she saw.

After the show we headed back to the room once again. We had a little time to kill.

Our beds had been turned down and we had a new friend & chocolates.





Something about chocolate left on your bed make it tastes so much better. We ate them each morning ....breakfast of champions!

We had a little time to kill so we went down to the shops before heading to dinner.







I was happy to see a few Galveston related items.

I loved this hat. I was so tempted to buy it. I loved the look and color .....but I am not a hat person. I never wear them, they look horrid on me and my head must be weird shaped, because they never sit right on me.



We weren't inspired to buy anything, so we headed out and explored a bit more before dinner.

We saw Minnie out for a greet.



I had a thing about trying to take the perfect chandelier picture. You will notice this is a theme for me. I did it on the Dream as well, and also of a few other items as well on that cruise.



We stopped and learned a little history about the Magic.



And we walked through Studio Sea since we hadn't yet looked at it. This is more the family type club.








It was close to 8:15 now so we headed towards dinner.
