Very funny observation of the 3 cruise ships. Disney does do a great job with their sail away party. We went, not expecting to get all excited, and ended up getting right into it.

Just saw the pic of the one poster's daughter on the FB page.

and the happiest cruisers

Well, they might have the most cruisers up on the top deck. But just going from my own experience on RCCL... instead of wasting my time saying goodbye to absolute strangers, and "partying" with other strangers up on the top deck as we sailed away, brand-new-DH and I were off, extremely happy, looking at the scenery go by as we took our honeymoon cruise, being extremely happy by NOT dancing with strangers and waving and no one in particular.

Not sure you can assume what you're assuming; RCCL had a lot for us to do away from the top decks, and we were off doing those things.

Even now, thinking about the sailaway party we'll be dealing with next month on the Dream, I cannot even possibly imagine why I would want to be up there, when I could be elsewhere, exploring. It absolutely boggles my mind. Surely there are more interesting things to do away from the eye of a webcam.

On our RCCL cruises, during the sail away, our sons were on the Flo Rider at the back of the ship. The best time to do so. Lines were small, they learned how to do it for the rest of the trip. Then we gathered for a pic at the railing with Miami South Beach in the back ground. One of our favorite pics.

I love that someone got to see her daughter sail away! How cool! And for taking care of the PITA baby doggy So cute. I love watching the sail away. From ANY ship

A lot of us don't see it as a waste of time, but enjoy the experience. To each his own.

I agree. As for my daughter, (22y/o) this is her very first cruise, and she is a little nervous and very excited. When she heard about the webcam, she thought it might be a way to share some of her excitement and the magic with her family back home in NY... and it was.
