There are no Hawaii Sailings on the Schedule through 2014. I really hope they go back in 2015. It was an AMAZING vacation. They had 2 Hawaii Sailings. One in May and one in October 2012.

October 15, 2012 - Day 4 - Day at Sea

Today started with Pete and I waking up really really early. Darn time change! We were up at like 6am. We ordered a Cheese plate and bagels for breakfast and then we walked around the ship. We went to Studio Sea for the cooking demo. It was so good. The Chef was really funny.





Studio Sea was a great place to host this. Lots of seating and good video monitors.



After that we went to the taping of the Morning Show. They showed it live in your stateroom every morning. The show went over the daily activities and people could even call in from their stateroom with questions.



The weather wasn't too great today. It was cool and windy. There was supposed to be Polynesian Dancers on the Pool deck. We went to catch the show. Once we got there they announced the half naked dancers would be inside.



I love this picture...look at Pete in his new hat!



Look at this. No land far as the eye can see!





I swear it's like Pete goes on vacation with his personal photographer. Hardly any pictures of me.

We decided to deliver some fish extender gifts. We had 2 weeks but since we were giving out amazing cool can koozies we wanted people to have them early.



Now it was time for the Dancer show so we got spots on the steps to watch. I took some random Atrium pictures while the show was starting.











Show time. The guy was VERY nice looking and danced very seductively!







We had some lunch with other people from the Disboards in Tritons. It was really good. We all closed the place down.



This is the very spot we said our US legal "I Do's". Ahhhh

Here is our door. The doors have so many layers of paint on them now our magnets were not sticking very well. It was a shame we had some really good ones.



I love the lighting on the ship. This is really my favorite ship!



We stopped by the Promenade Lounge for a drink.



Then we went to the club area. I wanted to play a game in Diversions. Pete...not so much.



We headed to the DVC presentation. We got new hats and played some games.



After that we went back to our room and Pete watched TV and I read my book until I fell asleep!

October 15, 2012 - Day 4 - Day at Sea, Part 2

Tonight we had Palo booked for the 1st time this cruise. After my nap I showered and got all pretty for dinner. We decided while I was getting dressed we brought WAY too many clothes!





I have found if you walk from one end of the ship to the other end up on the top deck the walk seems less far and you don't bump into the walls!



I was missing my little ones. I thought about them the whole time.

We checked into Palo. It was our first time in Palo in like 2 or 3 years with out our favorite waitress Annie Marie. We did have a great waiter named Ashley from India. He was good, but no Annie Marie!





Hmm....what should I order...

We started with the Antipasto. That cheese was so good. I really enjoyed the dried beef too.



I had the Mushroom appetizer. I swear this is so good I could lick the plate, you know if I wasn't in PALO. LOL



Pete had the Calamari. Not as good as mine!



I love him!



He loves me!



Before dinner we had the Sorbet. Oh how I love it.



For Dinner I had the Mushroom Risotto & The Pesto Shrimp, not a meal, but two of my favorites.





Pete had the Oso Bucco & Lobster Ravioli





Desert! Pete had the Chocolate Soufflé & I have Vanilla Gelatto and Chocolate Sauce.





Happy (Early) Anniversary



Right here in this spot is where we had our first dance as Husband and Wife 3 years, 11 months and 2 weeks ago! (I like the new wood floor!)



November 4, 2008




After Dinner we went to change and then walked around the ship. Nothing was going on, it was late and I was tired. I headed to bed. We had to set our clocks ahead an hour before bed. I am never going to catch up on sleep!



Pete went up on deck to hang out with his new friends. He did this almost every night when I went to sleep.

October 16, 2012 - Vacation Day 5, Cruise Day 3 - Day at Sea

So today we woke up to see the sun rise (of course...LOL)



We were not the only early risers. I think all the guests from the East Coast were on the top decks.





Today was out Character Breakfast. Of course I wanted to go. After the sunrise we showered and got dressed and headed to Parrot Cay. Not without taking a few pictures on the way.



A nice older lady with a cute red camera offered to take this picture for us....remember that for later!



We were lucky to have a table to ourselves for dinner. We were scared we would end up at a horrible table with annoying guests for 14 nights.



Pete was in love with the Mulsissi (or however you spell it!)



The Characters started right away. It was crazy and fast paced, I think since we had no kids with us they rushed us.



Not having children with us did not stop our waiters. Bogdan was the VEry best server we ever have had on a Disney ship!

















After breakfast we headed up to the decks for some dancing. Well some watching of some dancing! LOL



Pete ordered the Hottest (Nastiest) Bloody Mary ever!











Look at this kid! This was horrible....Where were his parents!!



Some guests joined in the fun!



CLICK HERE for a Video of the Dancers!

I love your trip report!!! Especially all the pictures!

Anne Marie (Palo) is our favorite too! We just adore her.

Can I ask you a question? What was that restaurant you went to in Calif. Adventure? And what did it include? You mentioned something with the show. The food looked fantastic!

When we were on the Dream in October 2012 Annie Marie was a concierge host, and they had no plans to go anywhere as her husband was the dining room manager (cant remember which dining room lol).

Annie Marie is the Very best! We have had her like 6 or 7 times and I just adore her!

We ate in Carthay Circle. When booked we booked it as a World of Color Package. You get a premium Fast Pass for reserved World of Color view areas. You had to order an appetizer and Main Course to qualify.

Annie Marie was in Concierge when we were on the Dream in February. Her Husband is like a Main Main DIning Manager. I don't think he is assigned to any one Dining Room but more in the training and managing the managers!

We have had her on the Dream and on the Magic she is so sweet and personable!

As always a great update.

This cruise had to be a definite dream come true.

14 nights on the Wonder and Hawaii too.

I really really hope they offer this again.

I was so excited!!!
I can't wait to read the rest of your report! We were on this cruise as well and had soooo much fun. As a matter of fact - it was funny to see my husband and brother in your picture (only their backs but I knew it was them)! Can't wait to see if we show up in more of your pictures! It's great to relive the trip (and keeps us excited for our September Panama Canal cruise too!!)
