I'm holding you to that.

And, I will be on the Dream in 23-ish days....I plan on visiting both Alex and Alenka while onboard and will say hello to them for you if you wish.

Just watched your 2011 youtube video (stumbled upon it from another Magic video) and it is wonderful!

Ok, I've Googled and Bing-ed and have tried on my own before asking, but . . .
I love the white ruffle sleeve top you are wearing in the beginning of the video. Where to buy? It looks so comfy and breezy and versatile and stylish.

I love your report and await a new installment :O)

We left him onshore with the grandparents! We decided it was worth the $20 or so for us to each have our own jetskis. But next year he'll be 8 so I'm sure he'll be tagging along then!

Great fun so far! I got caught up on your report. I've been in Florida for the past 6 weeks, missed the Dis.

Need to get this wrapped up because I will be starting a new TR soon - all about discovering the Dark Side, aka Royal Caribbean......

Just got back yesterday after a medical delay involving my FIL, so it's been quite a whirlwind....

So, where were we?

Ah, yes, Castaway Cay......

Once we got comfy in our cabana, we decided to take advantage of the bikes and head out to the lookout tower.





I must say, even though it's flat, it's soooooo hot and humid anywhere in the Bahamas, and quite frankly, I don't know what the excitement is in riding bikes here. Mine was really squeaky and climbing the tower didn't give me the view I was expecting. But I've done it now so I don't have to do it again.....

We really didn't do a whole lot on CC this trip - so far we haven't had great weather either trip there. The first time it rained most of the day, this time we had pretty heavy cloud cover most of the day.

We tried snorkeling but it was so choppy out that it was a lot of work to get anywhere. And not much to see once we did get out. Very cloudy water. And then Ally saw Barry. You know, Barry the Barracuda? She freaked and got back to shore pretty quick!!!!!



Leaving CC is always sad. I hate that it's the very last day because it just adds insult to injury!!!!!



But alas, it was time to head in. I mean, really, how do you do it? Not only are you leaving a beautiful private island. But you know it's the last night. And to top it off you get to pack up and try to figure out how to carry off the ship the few things you need for the next morning. There's no easy way to do it.....

I hate that stupid sign.





Once we got back on board, I decided to get packed up and then go have some fun. After all, this was it.....

So we moped out on deck for a little while.....



Then made our way to dinner. Where they choose to further rub salt into the wound with the title of the menu.....



I mean, really? Happiest place on earth, my behind!!!! Evil mouse, I tell ya!!!



Oh yeah, load me up, I'm gonna need it!!!



Really? Peter Pan's shoe? Is that to KICK us out??? Not very subtle, Mickey, you need to work on that!!!!



Back with dinner and Studio Sea stars Ally and Molly!!!!

The last night really does suck.
I can't wait to read your next Tr as well. Send me the bat signal when you start. I am heading off to Virginia next week so I might miss it while I am gone.

Well, I forgot to take pics of food the last night, because I was too busy moping around..... I just HATE the last night! It's bad enough just knowing the trip is almost over, but then when you know that your luggage is GONE until you are off the ship and you can't help but wonder, did I leave out any clean underwear for the next day?

Even worse than the nameless, tasteless food, is saying goodbye to our servers. Not our all time faves, but I think having early seating made it a bit harder to get to know them. Late seating and they are not the least bit rushed to get cleaned up for another seating, so they have more time for chit chat. But Gusti really was a pro......



Stiliyan was "ok" but always seemed to be in a hurry. Still, great with our whole table!



So I'll skip dinner and head straight to the WORST event on the ship.....

"Now it's time to say goodbye....."

Yada yada yada......















After dinner we headed out for a drink where I said, "NO!!! I'm not leaving!!!"



The final event of the cruise was a trip to Studio Sea to see Ally and Molly ON STAGE????

Yes, my child was singing karaoke with Molly!!!! Jonas Brothers, eat your hearts out!





They did a great job!!!! It was truly a magical end to a magical vacation!!!

And as promised.....

Here is the FULL movie, set to music, complete with photos and videos..... Hope you enjoy!!!

Our SECOND Magical Disney Cruise

Love the video, especially the beginning music However I picked the wrong time to watch it. My 10 year old son is obsessed with watching it, yea he's supposed to be doing homework.

Kara,
I'm new to DCL and recently discovered your reviews. They are so informative AND entertaining! You do a great job. We really need you to book another trip so we can live vicariously through you and your cruises. Maybe I should start taking up a collection for you. :-)

Thanks for sharing!
