I had a bit of catching up to do

Yay for the jewellery purchase - can't wait to see photos

I love the shot of you and Daisy Duck - you look soooo happy

Oh and thanks for the photos of Cove Cafe - I am really excited about sitting in their with a nice coffee, I spent a lot of time in the version on the Fantasy and the Wonder's version looks really nice

I know but there's so much to do and so little time! But I was glad I slept in as long as I did.
That really surprised and shocked me. We have not been to the Atlantis in Nassau, but we have been to the one in Dubai a few times and are going again in March. The water park there is absolutely pristine with tons of staff keeping the place at its best. There is one thing to be said about Aquaventure though. Once you have tried this, you don't want to go back to a Disney water park. They just can't compete with it and I have heard that Aquaventure in Nassau is even better than the one in Dubai.

I hope everything works out!

I think your journalling idea is great! A souvenir you can keep enjoying through til your next cruise.
Cozumel is beautiful, are you doing any excursions? I have that itinerary booked for next January, couldn't pass up on CC either.

So that's where the mysterious stairs led to. I wish I had explored some more.

I hope it was just an off day. The Aquaventure looks amazing and I'm still really curious about it. I have this phobia about wet paper (napkins, straw covers, that sort of thing) and the report I read said these things weren't being picked up or thrown away as they should have. Your review on the one in Dubai sounded fantastic.

I much preferred the Cove Cafe on the Wonder. More seating and corners to relax in. I also liked being able to get the pastries out myself rather than asking the CM.

I literally jumped out of my seat and exclaimed 'Daisy Duck!!!' in a very excited voice. I was so excited! I felt like a little kid

The jewelry was so unexpected, mom made me feel very special

I am so glad I am not the only adult who acts like a little kid about everything Disney.

You and your mom sound so close, it is lovely! I hope I have that kind of relationship with my DD's when they are grown!

I'm sorry some of the pictures are blurry, but I think you can make out most of them. It would be much better if I had a scanner.

I definitely am a kid at heart. I can't get enough Disney!

Mom and I have had our ups and downs, but we are very good friends now. I'm so glad we are able to share these trips together.

I don't think I'd get a moment of relaxing in if I did all the things they're planning to do. A lot of them have cruised together before.

I definitely invited mom to come along. Hopefully her work and DBF can live without her for 2 1/2 weeks. I'll go alone if she can't come, but I'm hoping everything works out.

I'm so excited!!!
Pam, we will be on the WBTA also. I can't believe how chatty that group is.

I'm not sure yet. I've never developed a taste for alcohol so all the tastings are out and I can't even imagine how big the FE is going to be. I'd probably have to bring a whole suitcase of FE gifts. I'm not a scrapbooker so that one is out. I'm sounding a bit like a party pooper... Still lots of time o think about it.
I am also not much of a drinker and don't scrapbook. I am looking forward to the FE though. So we can hang out together and not feel left out!

I never even knew the Outlook café existed till after our Panama Canal cruise and was reading about some of the people on our cruise hanging out there. Oh well, next time!
