Stock up on those shakes! Or can you make him some at home? Lots of delicious calories in milk and ice cream.

I got the biggest smile when he started chatting with me, that made my day! Sad you guys are so far away or I'd definitely become a friendly stalker

Jenny let me know if I'm posting too much ok

So like Jenny already said we had been texting and she and Josh were already onboard. I couldn't wait to find them so was basically just pointing the camera here and there without leveling it at all, sorry most of these are a bit crooked.



Cruise terminal pictures:

Shutters







I think everything about the ship is gorgeous, including the hallways and elevators

Walking to find you guys










This one is seconds before meeting Josh





Outside area of Beach Blanket Buffet





After I left you guys settling into your room I went back to BBB, the mac and cheese was calling my name!



Everything was scrumptious!



Some pictures of the restaurant:





And then I went down to find my room

I am so sorry about taking so long to reply. I teach at an inner city community college and one of my variable length classes just ended. At the beginning and end of each semester students go into “need” overload, as well they should. But that means my life (and my family’s life) gets put on hold during that time.

Back to the refugees; Jimmy, the cruise director, kept us informed as to what was happening via the intercom system. Our ship stopped when they spied the refugees and stayed still until the coast guard picked them up, approximately two hours later.
So the Wonder stopped, contacted the coast guard, sent a boat out to pick up the 4 men and 1 woman, and told “us” via Jimmy, that the refugees were in good spirits and health. The refugees were brought on board, fed and then sent away with the coast guard. I do not know what happened next. Someone said it would depend on where they were in international waters as to if they would be sent back to Cuba or taken to the US.

Oh, and their raft was just left floating in the ocean which I found strange.

He had 3 skin graphs on 6 teeth on his lower gums. They took the skin from his upper mouth so basically his whole mouth is in pain. Poor kid is miserable. M is home with him today and I was home yesterday. To add insult to injury, he got his top braces put on Tuesday so he's sore from that.
Ouch! Poor kid!

No apologies necessary. Sounds like you've got a very rewarding job that keeps you quite busy.

Thank you for coming back and sharing that story Kate. It's pretty amazing. I think it's really cool that Disney picked them up and has a protocol for that kind of situation. I wonder what they fed them? Mickey bars? LOL!

He is pretty sore today and his mouth is quite swollen. He is so hungry and wanted Mexican food. I'm hoping a tamale is okay for Passover because that's what he ate. I know it's not kosher but its not leavened.






Pam, thank you so much for posting those. I love them! I have no pics of this so would you mind if I *borrowed* a few?

What a beautiful blue sky we had that day! Seriously we had amazing weather the whole trip. We lucked out.

Your chandelier pic kicks butt. It's truly a work of art that light fixture. The colors are stunning.


That Mac n cheese looks heavenly. I'm sorry I missed that.

Love the kiddie pool without the kids.

Joshua loves the porthole, said its super cool. He'd go for one of those he says. Your room looks nice. Did it get nice and dark for sleeping?

I'm so glad you posted terminal pics. I didn't get one of it or the gang plank or being introduced. These are awesome!

We have a whole bunch of goodies here but no one makes a shake like Sonic or McDonald's. Do you have Sonic there?

Jenny, so sorry that Josh is hurting! I love that kid. I will keep him in my prayers. I feel awful that he is having to go through that.


Pam, is it okay if I steal some of your photos for my album? You took so many good ones! I guess I was too enamored to take photos of anything but my hubby. Also, those photos are making me desperately homesick for my ship. There is no possible way that I will make it an entire year before going back. I miss you guys!

Still loving your TR! I feel like I am right there with you.

I did have a bit of a "duh" moment when looking at Pam's
pictures. I kept wondering how I missed seeing all of the things in her pictures in the terminal. Well DUH! You boarded in Miami! We have only sailed from Port Canaveral! We have only sailed the Dream and Fantasy, so I am really enjoying seeing the Wonder. I think I may have to make an effort to sail the Magic and the Wonder and complete our Disney slam.

Can't wait to read the rest of your report!

Nancy

Thank you Beth. He really liked you and Chase too. It's so hard to see him in pain. I am hoping the swelling starts going down today. The doc said that yesterday and today would be the worst. He's very happy though that he's not missing any soccer games, just a few practices.

That's how I felt too. Feel free to take any of mine from here and FB. I need to post more to my FB album. Thank you for the ones you gave me.

That's funny! I hear PC is a much better port than Miami too. We didn't get the cool model of the skip or the fun ears to walk through. I need a do over!

Disney slam? Awesome!

Thank you. I am hoping to have an update this weekend, at least have the first day finished off.

It did, super dark, it was wonderful. We've done a verandah twice, an inside once, and we're doing a porthole next month. I've loved every room. When i don't have the verandah I find myself out of the room a lot more. It's all on how much I have to spend each trip.

I almost didn't but figured since you were whisked through so fast you might want to see them.

Thank you friend. Between us, our readers should be pleased. We both took a ton of pics.

It was heavenly. Both CC and Mexico were unreal.

I can hear you saying it now: so delicious!

I can see that. I think any room on a cruise is the perfect room. It's always about how we have to spend.

I am so glad you did. I don't have one proper pic of the terminal. I am not complaining as the quick smooth process was awesome.

Yeah my kids did not hit the dental lottery. Between my bad gums and Michael's weak teeth along with both of us needing braces, they're all pretty much out of luck.

You MUST get there. Their cheese covered tator tots are incredible. We like chili cheese but the chili has meat.
