I'm all caught up! I just love the cabana a great place to spend when at the beach!

We didn't do any swimming at the beach because the water was too choppy. Besides hundreds of sharks were migrating along the coastlines, I don't mix swimming & sharks!

Love the Eggs Benedict, one of my favorite breakfasts when on vacation. Wonderful that you got your favorite server after all.

Waiting for more fun updates.

PALO BRUNCH LOOKED ABSOLUTELY DIVINE!!!! I really hope to get into palo some day.
I have to say it was really nice to see a photo since he is usually at the other end on the camera.
The overlook looks beautiful I can not imagine it at sunset

Great update and pics.

Looks so relaxing to just sit outside and have a snack and watch the waves go by.

Yeah, great to know you are all caught up!
We just love our Cabana when we are at CC. Such a wonderful retreat.

Swimming with sharks, Doris, not my idea of fun either.

I only have Eggs Benedict when on vacation. They are the PERFECT vacation breakfast. Especially at Disney, where there are no calories in them.

Palo is really wonderful, so quiet and peaceful, with a wonderful view of the ocean. Not to mention that the food is divine!

Overlook is beautiful. We hope to catch it open one of these days, so we can enjoy a nice drink AND a sunset.

Thanks.
That is what we love about our cruising vacations, even though there are so many guests on board, you can always have a nice, quiet, peaceful time out on the veranda.

It was wonderful to have the Outlook all to ourselves. Disney really did a great job with it. Now, to only catch it open ......

We just love the Cove Cafe. They really have wonderful coffee creations in there and some yummy sweet treats as well.

Half term vacation 2013, Feb 16 - Feb 24

Day 5, February 20




“See you in Austria” - part 3

Since there was still time to do so, I continued to pack some more things until it was time to get dressed for dinner.
Dinner was at the Enchanted Garden again and we arrived there right on time and were quickly led to our table, where Ana was already waiting. We sat down, ordered some Diet Coke and waited for our friends to arrive. It didn’t take long and they were led to our table as well. We all shared a lot of laughs and chatted with Ana quite a bit.



And while we were chatting we found out that the nice family at the table next to us, who had very well mannered children, was actually part of our Fish Extender group. Soon our starters arrived at the table. Tom had opted for the



Romaine Wedge, fresh crisp romaine topped with creamy Romano dressing and homemade spiced croutons, while I had what I had already tasted during the cooking presentation,



the North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli with roasted garlic and sweet basil in a light tomato broth. Since we had a lot to talk about we were some of the last people to receive their entrees. Tom had ordered



the Caramelized Sea Scallops with roasted asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and pearl pasta, garnished with caramelized leeks and veal jus reduction, which he really enjoyed. I was actually quite full after my starter, but one needs to eat a lot while on a cruise, so I had ordered



the Roasted Pork Tenderloin seasoned with Smoked Salt, Citrus flavored polenta cakes and oven roasted carrots, parsnips and caramelized Granny Smith apples. We were all stuffed once we had finished our main courses. Katerina and Dimitrios were a bit in a hurry as they had an appointment with the DVC reps and Tom and I did not feel like dessert, so we said goodbye to Ana





and headed back to our stateroom to finish packing. When we walked into our stateroom we found another fun towel animal, a snake.



We put the last few pieces into our suitcases, then put them outside, just to be told by our stateroom host that it was still a bit early and he would be able to fetch them until 11pm. That meant that we would be able to put them outside once we returned from 687, where we wanted to meet up with Katerina and Dimitrios after their DVC appointment. We arrived at the bar a bit early and ordered our drinks. Tom had



a 687 beer and I ordered



a Strawberry Daiquiri. We sat and enjoyed our drinks while talking about our vacation so far. Around an hour later Katerina and Dimi arrived and they were a bit disappointed.
They both had been ready to join the DVC, but the rep was a bit too pushy and only offered them AKV and the price was a bit too stiff for them. They told us that they had asked about something a bit cheaper and were told there was no such thing. So they left without taking the plunge. We all chatted for a while longer and then headed back to our staterooms.
We put our luggage outside and when we looked about 10 minutes later our suitcases had disappeared. We were sad that our cruise was already coming to an end and sat outside on the veranda for quite some time before we headed inside and got ready for bed. We had changed to early dining and that meant that we had the early breakfast rotation as well.

To be continued ...........

Oh no...

The last night on a Disney Cruise has got to be the worst feeling in the world. I can very easily take myself back to our last night, and putting the luggage out for pick up. So, so sad.

Too strange about the DVC guide..I've never met one that was pushy...too bad your friends got a dud.

What a nice evening with friends.

As for the DVC... as you know I have visited the idea of purchasing each year this time. Now I am going for it... but sadly Disney raised their direct rates by a LOT! I don't blame your friends for not biting....

Karin -

I am slowly catching up on things but wanted to comment how disappointing it is to hear that your friends didn't have a positive DVC experience. I can't stand pushy guides - anywhere. I hope they can do a little research on their own and perhaps find the contract they are looking for.

Dinner - yum!
