My breakfast of champions:

After we ate, we made our way back downstairs. As we walked through the art hallway, I took some pictures of my favorite, well, pictures! (All Don “Ducky” Williams)

We then went to the Promenade Lounge and played some Uno while the Shopping Lady talked. At 11:20, we made our way to the lobby for the “Character Festival.”
Thanks for your detailed TR. I'm enjoying reading about your experiences and am equally impressed with the pics. In 40 days, we'll be sailing on our first DCL cruise. A couple of questions:
- we've done 2 WBTA in the past and appreciated gaining an hour each time. How did you find losing an hour each day?
- my DD3 is very excited to meet the princesses, were the line ups awfully long?

Cheers,
Teri

Hi Teri! Thanks for reading!

-Losing an hour each day was...well, weird, haha. We would sleep in later and later each day as the stretch went on. Sometimes we would miss breakfast...oops! By the end of the stretch, our bodies were definitely thankful it was over.

-We found all lines for all characters to be very reasonable! Just show up 5-10 minutes early and you should be all set for the princesses, I would imagine! (Since there aren't as many children on board the longer cruises, it seems to help keep lines down.)

2013 Eastbound Transatlantic

Thank you so much for your wonderful travel log! I wish I was disciplined enough to write every day; I begin with the best intentions then I just let the travel take me away.

Am beginning to pack now, will be taking 8 day Magic out of Galveston with my husband and then I will be traveling by myself transatlantic. My simple question is - what was the weather like during your crossing. Do I need more than one sweatshirt (I get easily bored with clothing). Should I pack an all weather coat, or, did you need a rain coat? Thanks so much!

Have a Magical day!

We were very fortunate on this cruise. The weather was warm to hot every day and I don't believe we had rain! I think we packed one sweatshirt and barely used it...it was mainly used indoors since parts of the ship can get pretty chilly (i.e. the movie theater). Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for the detailed trip report. It has really caused my interest in a TA increase and I might just be booking tomorrow. The only thing I missed was pictures of the cast of characters in your party but I understand privacy.
