Minnie's Fiesta Grande

This was a cute show and really enjoyed seeing the characters in their Mexican wear.

dinner

so after 13 days on a ship surrounded a little too closely by family, a little break from one another was needed. So if this happens to you a great alternative place for dinner is beach blanket which offers casual table service in the evenings.



also has a great view in a quiet setting:









Others in our family ate with the main dining rotation which had the captain's gala menu





California mixed salad (also served in beach blanket that evening)


wild forest mushroom soup


Lobster served by Patryk


venison




Best dessert of the cruise - warm chocolate lava cake

Chocolate Buffet

this was not listed in the navigator but our servers told us that tonight there would be a chocolate buffet in Tritons. Unfortunately the camera was on the wrong setting so the only pictures that are somewhat clear are these:











Back in the room


we received this lithograph as a gift

I am LOVING your trip report. The only problem is that it's making it really hard to wait for my Panama Canal cruise!

I know the feeling we also booked over a year ahead for the panama cruise. It is definitely worth the wait! It was such a cool experience!

Day 13 Navigator



Dreams was by far the best show of the cruise and I really did enjoy it, but the shows on the Fantasy are even better.

Day 14: Whale of a Tale along Baja California



Baja California:









First sighting of a whale exhaling - or as my ex-aquarist DSis scientifically called it Whale Snot:



In one of my pictures after magnifying it we do see the tale of a whale:

2nd Brunch at Palo

We enjoyed brunch at palo so much the first time that we decided to schedule it again for our last day on the cruise. It was very special and they gave us the same table we had for the first brunch and for dinner. And of course we had Sasha once again.













Cold strawberry soup - after I had a taste of my mom's at the first brunch I decided to have a cup of this all to myself this time (very yummy):



these cannot possibly be all for me - I am sure it was for the table

That is awesome! It was absolutely a great experience and we all enjoyed crossing the Panama on the Disney Cruise Line

I noticed when I was planning there were not a lot of Panama Canal trip reports so I am so glad this is helpful to others! It is amazing how long it takes to go through all the pictures and write a report but we wanted to finish before the EBPC - looks like we will make it - just half a day left to finish and then it will be onto Disneyland!

Count me in as another one following along as I anxiously await boarding in 26 days for the EBPC!!! I have enjoyed your journey. I'm hoping we see a dolphin or two like you did - slim chance for a whale!

You are right - there aren't too many PC trip reports. I say I'll do one each cruise but I end up losing track of notes aka stop taking them! no promises, but I'll try

I've gotten more than my fairshare of ideas from reading this TR and I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready!!
