Thanks. It was such a pretty morning. But most mornings are on a ship...knock on wood I keep having them!
Keep working on her. Soon you'll hve her over on the dark side. It really didn't take too long for me to bring Katie over!

And what's with this "knock wood" stuff? Seems like you know already how it went and wouldn't need to be knocking on wood.......

Hmmmmm.......

Wow...what a gorgeous sunrise, Jen.

Beautiful pictures. We'll probably never do a cruise, so I enjoy seeing all the pictures of the different parts of the ship.

I agree, I could never get tired of sunrises and sunsets, especially if they are over water.

Why do you say the Teens Club should be the adult area and is poorly planned?

Again, great photos, Jen!
I wish we would push ourselves and get up on deck early in the morning once, but we usually just sit on the veranda, taking in the view.
Love the empty ship and guess what - I don't even know where the spa is.

I'm mostly knocking on wood so that in future cruise I don't have stormy weather.

Thanks. I bet you would enjoy it though if you took the plunge.

The teen area is private, while the adult area is supposed to be, but the way it's set up, many people walk through without even realizing it's for adults only. I caught myself walking through with Claire a couple of times without meaning too.

I love the early mornings, but I know not many people like to get up early like that. But sitting on the verandah is a great option too.
On my first cruise, I nver saw the spa either. But when we toured the ship, we went through it, and this time I thought I would take another look.

Continuing on with my tour of the Spa area.












I love to check out the salon as I am licensed to do hair as well.













I thought this was really pretty.





Itís amazing all the services they have onboard. They even had teeth whitening.









I was done there and headed out to explore a bit more.

These are the pool bar stools at the adult pool.



I love the artwork all over the ship.



And a peek into the Quiet Cove Cafť.



I love this dťcor.





You could grab a quick snack here if you wanted to.

I just love this blue color here in the Cove Cafť. When we toured suites on the ship in 2011, this was the color scheme in the room and I loved it there as well.







Onward now.



This is where you get the ice-cream ….when it’s open. The girls loved this spot.







I LOVE this shot.



Well, and this one too!









This is one of those items that I just can’t stop taking pictures of. I have about 7 hundred and 50 zillion pictures of the Aquaduck sign.



This is where the Auqaduck spits you out at. Obviously when it’s running there is water and that gate isn’t covering the opening.





This area was smoking last time I sailed. I am betting they changed it because it had kind of a wind tunnel effect through here at times. ….just a guess.

I am enjoying all your exploration photos! I feel like I am on the ship! Sadly this is as close as I will get to the Dream for a while. Still can't convince my friends that they would enjoy a Disney cruise!

Boy they don't know what they are missing! It's really a lot of fun. I know people like that too. Heck I have a family member like that.

More great shots of the ship...I too feel like I'm right there walking around.

That spa is stunning, and I'm with you...I love those blue colors.

That's Claire, right?





So did it feel like coming home to get back on the Dream after sailing the Fantasy?

Many nights she just would tell us she would give it to us the next night as it wasnít ready, and many nights the bills never showed up. Gail ended up going over hers with a fine tooth comb one night from the ship account and found several that were charged to her that she didnít actually get.







We tried to get a picture of the girls in front of the fountain. Claire of course never looks at the camera.





We needed to get Abby in there.



Abby has a different idea on how to pose! She was lifting her dress up for all the world to see that she wears undies! Gail quickly ran over and told her she canít do that here.

One more try.



We gave up. 3 squirmy kids does not make for a nice picture.





After dinner, we headed out to get the kids their bands for the kids club. We had to go to the Fantasy Convention room to do so. And boy the line was LONG!



We finally got up there and the computers kept going down so it even took longer, but we did get them all officially signed and ready for the clubs.

A quick stop off in the bathrooms and it was time to head to the show.
I just love the different bathrooms on the Dream. This is one area where they are better than the Magic. Each area seems to have a different theme.



Golden Mickeys was the show tonight. This one is my favorite I think of all the shows I have seen so far. As you can see, Claireís dress was themed for this nightís show.




It was Gail and I and our girls. Mom and Dad mentioned that they would be coming and we did see them walk in with Geoff, but they were on the other side and made their way to different seats.





The show was great. The girls did have a few moments of being scared, but they did fine. I had tears in my eyes at the end when Abby just gasped. It was so precious.

After the show, we headed out and found Donald. Mom, Dad and Geoff met up with us as well.











Abby was not scared one bit.







She also did not want to leave.

Are those profesional pictures, the ones with disney borders?

Thanks so much. You are going to have such a great time. I hope to have a good chunk of the cruise up before then. Now that I am only writing one TR, I can go faster on this one. I have my next update ready for tomorrow, which is a nice feeling!

Tha spa is really neat. I am not a spa person, but I may someday have to try out something, like a massage or something ...you know just for the experience. LOL

NOT! My Aunt who didn't go on the trip still makes nasty comments about the trip and how stupid we all were. She sails a VERY expensive line all the time, and basically she is mad that we didn't come to her and ask her if she wanted to do something first and let her choose it for all of us. Plus she has no patience for kids.

Do you mean the Magic? I haven't been on the Fantasy yet, but I sure hope to someday!

My mother has now told me twice in the last 2 days that she wants to sail an Alaskan cruise ...with me. I would love to, but I need to find the time ...and money.
