Oh man, I really miss the pool area. WAY better than the pool area on the Dream. It doesn't look busy at all! And is that a buff older gentlemen behind you in that one picture you took of yourself?? I'm not sure how or even why I saw it, but was thinking, dang, hopefully DH can look like that one day when he's older!!

Ah, the massage. Did they give you the spiel afterwards? I really wish we could have skipped that part because I was so relaxed and the last thing I wanted to do was be taught a lesson on their products.

How's the baby? I remember your trip reports

This sounds like a lovely relaxing day. We had room service for the first time on our last cruise and both had the steak sandwich. We really loved it, but on the Magic it was in a sub roll.

Loving your trip report.

Fran is a sharp dresser. What is on her tie? Is that a polar bear? Too cute!

your day sounded nice and relaxing, except for Fran being in pain. I know it puts a damper on things. but you both spent some nice quality time together.

Thanks for all the food porn, I am now starving after my yogurt for breakfast.

I feel like an old fogie after 2 nights without sleep.

That's a nice pic of you and Fran too. Cute dress you've got on. Love the food coma photo. Can't wait to get to my Boma pics in my trip report. I was in a Boma coma after that meal.

Sorry Iíve been gone for so long, being back home and having to do my daily routine and chores really takes away from my TR time on the DIS. I seem to only have time for lasting!

Looks delicious. And that picture of you and Fran is gorgeous. I love your bling. Is that the black dress? Will we see a full length picture of you in it?

Sounds like the spa was worth it.
I canít wait to get back on another ship! Even the ďnot so goodĒ food porn days were better than me having to cook at home!

That is the black dress, and no I didnít get a full length picture of myself. I was just too tired that night. Probably from all the ďstuffĒ I did that day! Probably the massage kicked my butt!

At least that is one of the luxuries of being on the ship. She had in-room entertainment, all her meals were prepared and barely had to leave the room except for dinner!

I will have to make a Palo dinner reservation on our next Disney cruise, whenever that happens, because everything on your table and menu looked superb as well. Did you ever find the rearview mirror and other thing you were expecting in that plethora of packages? And is there a back story to that old car you guys got, or was it just a spur of the moment kind of purchase?
She did the same thing on our Alaska cruise, we did these excursions that I never would have dreamed of a helicopter, seaplane, hydrofoil boat, plus jewelry and stuff! All I have to do is get her out of the house near shiny objects and sheís all over it. Thereís still more to come! I just found the receipts when I took the stuff out to take pictures of!

I did the brunch because Aliciaís trip looked so good and took her recommendation for the first day at sea. I think we will repeat that on our cruise out of Galveston.

No we didnít find that rearview mirror. We also never found a computer that was supposedly delivered, but at least they sent a replacement. Hereís the car story. Franís first car was a Cougar. I think it caught fire or got in a wreck. About 10 years ago she got this. We had it COMPLETELY restored (rebuilt engine, new seats that look just like the original, everything) about 4 years ago.



Then a few years later she got this, thinking she could drive it daily.



Then she wanted a show car, so she got this. It was also detailed and restored on the surfaces (no engine work).



Then this year we got some extra money from an investment that her father left her which cashed out, and she started to go crazy. She always wanted one of these, but now we found out it canít be registered in California, so it is back up for sale. This is a replica of a 1936 Auburn Speedster.



Then she decided she needed something a little less ďfancyĒ, so we bought this one at auction.



The 1928 Auburn, the car I showed earlier, is an ACTUAL 1928 Auburn, and she felt she had to have a ďrealĒ one instead of just a repicar. Iíve told her we REALLY have to stop buying cars (we might run out of money) because we just donít have any more garage spaces to put them in!

Again, something from your TR that sounded fun. I didnít even notice the older gentleman in the photo! Iím sure your DH will look better!

I didnít get any kind of spiel after the massage, but I know that they normally do one.

The Captain's Gala menu looks pretty good, we were in Palo for this night when we were on the Fantasy

Thanks for the great pictures of the adult area
I liked ordering room service! It was neat just to hide in our room for that one day. Iíd look out the verandah every so often, but we were just tucked away in the room watching movies and eating, it was kind of fun. We never take time to do that and relax at home.

The steak sandwich was really good. Normally I canít finish something, but I ate all of that and my Macaroni and Cheese.

Unfortunately she is in pain a lot of the time at home too, but yes, we did get some nice time together, and I didnít even get on my computer once!

Boma Coma! Love it! I canít wait to read about it!

While we were on our way home from my parents, we stopped at the outlets at Gilroy and I picked up a few new dresses. One for Palo Brunch, and one each for Formal night and Semi Formal night!

Oh don't worry she'll have another. Shes has already found one at 2/3 the price of that one, we just need to make sure we can register it in CA before she tajes the plunge. I'd prefer we sold this one first, but the one she found this mrnng is an awesone deal!

We'll ship the other one bavk to the dealer in Florida. Who knows maybe we can take it for a spin on our next vacay!

Followed you from Ellen's TR and have spent the last couple days reading the whole thing. Looks like you are having a nice cruise so far, sorry Fran has been having pain issues. It is cool to see a cruise going to some different ports than the usual Caribbean ones. Too bad they aren't doing cruises on the Mexican Riviera anymore.
