Loving your TR!!!!
We are not sure my DH will be able to get off the boat so I loved all the descriptions of the good time you had on port days without going ashore. And all the food pix! And guess I'll break down and get a Rainforest pass!

thanks again!

My husband says he goes on Disney cruises for the ships not the ports. Last year he didn't get off the ship AT ALL except for Castaway Cay. So him getting off the ship in Grand Cayman was a big deal. The rainforest pass is the best $16 you'll spend!

Thank you for reading!

More More More, I love your Trip Report. What do you get for the $16 at the Rainforest?

For the $16 day pass at the Rainforest you can use the 3 saunas, 4 fun showers, 2 hot tubs, and 10 heated tile loungers. It's SO relaxing in there!

Oh man, I so love the Chocolate Amaretto Indulgence at Palo also...my favorite dessert on DCL!

So funny you gave 31 luggage tags as FE gifts! I did that also on our 2010 cruise...I think I wiped 31 out of them for a short time (we had a huge group, and each stateroom received one)...they ended up being backordered!

We tend to always get to Serenity Bay early also in order to grab chairs/loungers close by. This past October we took our time getting off the ship and had to hoof it down to the far end of SB. You know what? The water down there was not rocky at all! I'm considering hoofing it down to the far end just for that!

Enjoyed your report!
