If I had an overall trip report for this whole trip that commences tomorrow, I'd probably name it "this would be easier if Orlando had a Trader Joe's".

There are just things we need that feel a lot easier to buy here at TJ and transport cross country. Things we can get there...it's not like Emergen-C and cashews don't exist in Orlando. But it's a lot more expensive at Whole Foods than at TJ, and I don't *know* what they have at Publix. Add to it the issue of no car until we're back on land, and it just becomes a mess of "where to put the pre-weighed/ziplocbaggied cashews, and if I put the packets of vitamin powder in *there* will it get the bag searched?

Exhausting.

And my upper lip is numb because I had it waxed for the first time ever, YOUCH. It's not red anymore, thank goodness. I had half my day's errands *after* that...whoops!


Well we leave tomorrow, and hopefully I won't have some horrid upper lip reaction overnight.


Get in after midnight, go to Port Orleans Riverside. Have the 6th to play, then take the official bus to the Port on the 7th, and there we are.
I love Trader Joe's it is one of my favorite stores. There is a new one in our area called Fresh and Easy. I am falling in love with it.

Ouch I hope your lip healed up.

I am typing from the Hard Rock Hotel. The guys are still sleeping and it's 10. I have been up since 6. But it's OK, they really needed the sleep.

The cruise was much much better than I thought it would be. Wait, that's not how I feel. How I feel, exactly, is that it was less annoying than I thought it would be. I'm a weird Disney fan...I just wanted the characters to go away lol.

I now understand why people want to know how their servers are doing and why they hope to get them again. If you like Indian food, the kitchen can make up some delicious curries etc. Great for those of us with different diets.

Concierge level was awesome and it would be painful to go without it lol. Thats even though I accidentally ate bacon that was inside and on top of (I thought it was onion) an "assorted bread" option in the lounge. Whoops.


I spent all day yesterday hoping that the ground would stop swaying. . And I am jealous of whoever is in "our" room right now.


The guys were first to meet JSparrow on Castaway. I did the 5K and my legs are still sore...ground is different than treadmill, and it is NOT perfectly flat out there! I would like to spend a week there, by the way. Lovely time.

Nassau, not so much. If I went there again I would get an excursion. We tried to walk around on our own but I didn't realize how nervous E would get about that. We didn't see much more than parliament and then basically turned around.


Anyway I am on an iPad which isn't fun so I don't want to tell everything, but it was nice and we know that we all really like cruising, even if Mickey isn't on board. It would be great if we could get Ludovic and Leslie from the dining room to switch cruise lines, but if not, that's OK. E saw an ad for Oasis of the Seas last night and started yearning to be onboard that ship, so it's all good.

Kids program, by the way, was really enjoyed by the kidlet. He had a blast!


But I wouldn't do a three day cruise again. Too short. Unrelaxing for us, hence them sleeping the Universal day away! I am going to have to start singing about butter beer soon......
Thank you.

Your cruise sounds lovely. I love Indian style foods. I would cook lentils and curry related dishes all the time if I could get away with it.

My oldest daughter and I have been talking about going on a cruise together. Scotty has no interest.

There's a thread on the Disney cruise forum here devoted to the castaway cay 5k. Very helpful! It's just a casual (and free) thing, but they do have bib numbers and a shirt (cotton) you can buy. And plastic "winner" medals for everyone, WHEN that particular ship has stock of them. Some ships have certificates, too. For me the bib number was the important thing, so the medal was just gravy. And I only just now remembered that some people have gotten certificates so that wasn't important to me either!

Aha! There are separate PTR and TR areas here, so let me just copy and delete this post, and move it on over.....here.


And now the PTR is finished.
