Sept 29th to Oct 6th Eastern Carribbean Q & A

Ok i really have a hard time getting down my memories in to "days" so I decided to interview my self...lol ... i'll add pictures also...Hope you enjoy

First thought/reactions to the "MAGIC"?
Tears of joy and a few slaps on DH's shoulder with many "OMG...Do you see it..."

Favorite place on ship?
I love to people watch and when it was to hot for my fair skin and freckles I loved to sit in the lobby and in enjoy the large portholes and all the people.

First DISboarder who I meet?
JDBlair..aka..Jac, who I promptly attacked with a hug..

Disboarder you wish you got to spend more time with?
All of you... but getting to spend time with Irene(Ibela), Jac and
their familys was great.


Best CM?
Alexander...Hands down...he made us all feel as like we were one big family, the boys still talk about him....

Most "magical moment"?
About the 3rd day, when I realized that this was "freakin awesome", then asked DH if we can quit work and sail the "magic" forever.!! His fast reply was a "yes, of course"... ...gotta love a man that dreams big

Most pre-trip hyped event or activity?
Pirate party, maybe the fact that the boys fell asleep on lounge chairs curbed my excitiment...

Restaurant you wish would be come a "Chain"?
With out a doubt, Animators, Could you imagine having a little bit of
"disney" all over the country for special occiasions and family nights out.


DIS recommend Item you didn't miss, need, or take?
The over the door shoe hanger, I'm the only girl in the group so the junk is all mine, also the travel nightlight/alarm clock......cell phone worked just as good.

DIS recommended item I wish I would have taken?
Air freshener...lol...like I said I was the only girl in a inside cabin..no futher explanation needed...

Dinner ressies to link or not to link?
YES!!! some of my most special moments of the trip was getting to met Irene, Jac and their familys. By mid-week we were laughing and joking like old friends and by the end of the week it was like saying goodbye to family..

St Marteen or St Thomas?
St Thomas for us. We loved the locals our tour guide was wonderful, he was a local police officer who did tours on the side. He was well informed and funny. He made us feel safe and secure. Answered all of our questions and took us to some of the mose beautiful views we have ever seen. On the other hand we felt annoyed and unwelcomed in St Marteen, maybe its because we only explored the beach area right off the water taxi dock. Next time we will get a tour to see the island better and maybe our view will change.

Castaway Cay?
One word "PERFECT".

Will you book again?
OMG...Yes,yes and did I say yes. It was more wondrful than I hoped. It was fun and exciting with enough time to relax. We have become addicted and I am bring family along next time to see what all my yammering on about has been about.
