Hey stranger! How the heck have you been? It has been a long time ... just couldn't seem to find anything to write about until we sailed with a hurricane!

Thanks for the kind words ... and remind me why we haven't ended up on the same cruise?

Love all the drink reviews. You have given me some great ideas of new things to try when we are on the Fantasy again next year!

Ok- I don't know what happened, but somehow I made it to the House of the Crystal rat and....that was it! Maybe I had enough of Sandy in NJ and I wasn't ready to relive her- even if it was on a Disney cruise! HA!

You both had the right attitude- so sad there were people raggin' on the CMs about CC- HUGE pet peeve of mine- the ENTITLED people. UGH- they are the WORST!!!

All of your meals and drinks looked excellent- I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of Ooh La La I get on my Dream cruise in a couple of weeks, though! I hope they don't still limit the Dream Mixology to 10 people- that is one I am hoping to take, but I will be getting to the port late (on the bus) this time, so hoping they will have room for me to still sign up when I get there.

We are on the Fantasy over NYE this year and definitely plan on Remy- thanks for sharing that luscious meal with us- really am looking forward to it!

Thanks Bendy, for another fabulously entertaining TR! Oh! In STJ, did anyone tell you you were at Honeymoon Beach when you (I mean Jay was) snorkeling? Very beautiful there- we spend lots of time on STJ- I hope you get to go back for longer next time, it is a beautiful island!

Say hi to the Gremlins!

Thanks for coming back to finish it out - glad you enjoyed it! Enjoy Remy and all the other good stuff the ship has to offer!!

Brenda, great review as always. We were in Skyline every night last August drinking Novak's concoctions. We'd go "off menu" and just have him experiment on us. Got some really different drinks that were awesome.

Unfortunately, did you see/hear that he is leaving DCL? He posted on FB last week that he has resigned from Disney.

Love to keep up with some of them.

It is a bummer that he's gone. We loved seeing him each night.

As for FB, we friended each other after our cruise.

Jeff, thanks for stopping by to take a read; nice to hear from you. I hope you and the lovely family are doing well.

So very sorry to hear about Novak ... we are both bummed by the news. We didn't think about friending him after the cruise because we are just dumb that way. Maybe I will try to do that tonight just to wish him well. He was pretty darn amazing ... both as a bartender and a person.

He is amazing.

Did he tell you the story about when he started? He was in the manager's office and they actually had the drink book that he put out on their bookshelf. He could make some mean drinks.

If you don't have his last name, let me know, I can PM you.

Oh, and the family is doing great, thanks for asking. Have you and Jason traveled up this way lately?

I usually don't ever read TRs, but I recognized your DIS name as one that's on one of my upcoming cruises (Oct 2014 Southern) & decided to read it. Great job! Hilarious Felt like I was on board with you. I loved your take on the Hurricane Sandy situation - great stand on that issue.

Thanks again for the TR! I'll see you on board next Oct

Hey Brenda- If you search Novak on FB he should show up pretty close to the top of your search list since I have him friended as well. People with "mutual friends" move to the top of the search lists.

Glad to hear you are all doing well! We haven't been up north since Thanksgiving 2010 ... unless you count a recent training blitz of mine in February which was totally work related. Sooner or later we will make it up your way again.

Walking in your footsteps

One of the best trip reports I've read. We have the same trip plan nines for the first week of November. I feel compelled to follow in your footsteps. We're not worthy!

I haven't been around for a while so just now seeing this. Thanks for the kind words. Now that your cruise is over, please tell me how your trip was and if the booze lived up to your expectations.
