Day 4 - Puerto Vallarta

The kids slept in until 8 and we were headed to BBB by 9:15. By the time we got up to BBB, we had already docked in PV. The skies were blue and we were looking at another gorgeous day. I had a bowl of Kashi cereal back in my room before the kids got up so I just had fruit at BBB. The breakfast buffet doesnt really seem to change much so the kids had their usual assortment of cheese, salami, pancakes, cheese omelet and some fruit. Breakfast was quick and we were set up at the Mickey Pool by 10! Like I had said earlier, I decided to cancel our excursion in PV and just stay on the ship.

Once again, the pool was empty! There was really just a handful of kids. DISer elderfams Dh was at the pool with their son who played with my kids most of the day. Elderfam was at the adult pool, lucky girl! The water was cold at this point in the day but it didnt seem to bother the kids that much. What did bother them was the fact that the Mickey Slide would not be opening until 1pm. Trying to explain to a 5 year old where the big hand needs to be for it to be 1pm was a losing battle. They passed the time playing and eating. The slide actually opened around 12:40 and they continues to slide down it over and over again until around 2.






At that point they had enough fun in the sun and wanted to go back to the lab/club. So we headed back to the room, got the kids bathed, changed, and then brought them to the lab/club. I went back to the room to shower and just relax until it was time to get ready for dinner.

I had read here on the DIS about purchasing all the pics from Shutters in addition to the cd. I found out for this cruise that it would be $75 for all the pics in addition to the $400 cd. So far the pics we have taken have just been okay, not because of the photographer but rather because getting all 3 kids to smile at the same time is hard! I must like a challenge because we headed back downstairs for more pics to be taken at 5:15. We were first in line for the white background pics and surprisingly, no one even came in line after us and we were there taking pics for at least 10 minutes.





Dinner tonight was in AP. One of my favorite dishes on this ship is the mushroom risotto appetizer from AP. So yummy and tonight did not disappoint. I know I had a steak for dinner but I am drawing a blank on what was served with it! The kids had their usual choices from the kid assortment. Our server is doing a fabulous job getting us in and out for dinner. Tonight was the AP show so we did stay for it but other nights, we are done with dinner by 6:45. This is greatly appreciated by the kids and myself!


Tonights show was Who Wants to Be a Mouseketeer? I probably should go see this one cruise because we have always skipped it and tonight was no different even though I cant tell you exactly what it is except it is a type of game show?? Instead the kids went back to the club/lab but not before taking a few more pics.


Ariel was always so sweet with Katelyn. Here she is talking to Katelyn about the black sea shell she has in her hair. Katelyn had a lot of different flowers and bows in her hair over the course of 2 weeks. Every time she would she Katelyn, she woud comment on the new 'sea shell' in her hair. Katelyn was so tickled that Ariel remembered her.


Josh asked, or rather told me, not to pick him up until 10:30 because he wanted to play gaga ball in the lab and the last 2 times I picked him up they were in the middle of playing and he didnt get to finish. I gave him my usual answer of well see and then headed back to the room to check my email and update my trip report. Tonight was the first time I had a lot of trouble getting the internet to connect. I gave up after awhile and just watched Rock of Ages on tv. Not a movie I need to watch again! LOL I lasted just until 10:30 when I went and picked up the kids. Came back to the room and filled out my room service card so that the kids could have cereal in the morning because Id be too busy getting ready for brunch to take them to eat in the morning! LOL Once again, fell asleep to the sweet sounds of the Pacific!

I read your Hawaii trip report that you took without the kids. Did you enjoy this one as much with the kids? I went on the Hawaii cruise with my 5 year old son and enjoyed it immensely. Most relaxing trip ever.

Sounds like you're getting some much needed relaxation in, despite being the sole parent!

Glad to read your report.
