Day 11 still

Decided to pack up our things and headed back to pick up Micheal at Scuttles cover hoping to beat the rain
but no it started to pour and I mean pour




at this stage the kids club was closing so we had to make a run for it
as we were wet we just walked back to the ship
couldn't get over how warm the rain was
Micheal had great fun playing in the puddles






and there was lots of warm towels waiting for us as we went on board
and yes you guessed it by the time we got to the ship it stopped rain

After getting dried up DH headed to the gym , boys were in the clubs and I went to the DVC members party , didn't win any prizes
met up again at the goofy pool and stayed there until it was time for the show

Tonights show was the comedian Heath Hyche , he was very very funny We really enjoyed this show

The boys were dinning alone tonight at Parrots Cays where they were well entertained by Andre and Luci and had great fun
One on each end of a table for 8
Myself and DH were dinning in Palos
We enjoyed it here the food was great but would be in no big hurry back , for us dining with the family is a nicer thing to do on board then going to Palos

Boys went to their clubs after dinner
We were the last to leave Palos so after our nightly walk around deck and checking in on Micheal we went to The Piano Bar sessions for a while , then picked up Micheal from the club at closing and headed to bed
another great day

Day 12 Our 1st Sea Day and Formal Night
No real plans for this morning had breakfast at topsiders again and boys went to they clubs and spent the day between them and the pool
Myself and DH went to the fat burning seminar which was very interesting
and the digital camera one which was more on what kind of camera to buy then taking photos which I thought it would be about

Today was our Dis trick and Treating too
We have been planning this on our thread meet for about 2 mouths before and we had over 60 kids involed along with there parents
Suzie had done a great job for us , all her hard work made this event far better then the T&T that Disney had done onboard
Thanks Suzies
Micheal really enjoyed himself and got lots of treats at the end
Myself and Jenn were at the Animators Palates clue stations and had great fun with all the kids
We even met Daisy Duck at the end too


After this we headed up to the Goofy pool and spent the rest of the afternoon there chilling out , it was quite rough today and I was feeling a bit sea sick but not as bad as last time
Think this was the day we played Bingo too , didn't win but it was really good fun
I had a date at the spa this evening and the rest went to the show which was the Golden Mickeys
Which they enjoyed


We got to meet the Captain this evening too


It was Formal night and we were dinning in Lumieres








The boys went to their clubs and we went to the Heath Hyche Adult Cabaret in Rockin' Bar D which was great fun

Picked Micheal up and went for our nightly walk around the deck before heading to bed
Our towel animal to night

We put the time back an hour tonight so we had a extra hours sleep

Day 13 Cozumel
We were up early this morning and had breakfast at Topsiders again

It was very windly today and a most of the shore excursions were cancelled
but we were lucky enough
We met up at the Promendade lounge with the rest of our group and we on our way
We had picked the Eco Park and Snorkel excursion . First we had to walk through the shopping center and board our tranport which was a open truck and drive for about 45 minutes to the Punta sur ecological park




First stop was at a Lagoon filled with salt water crocodiles





and at a small Mayan temple ruin


and then it was on to the lighthouse and museum
which we climbed to the top
great view!







Next we had to drive down a one way dirt road which took forever
to get to the beach where we got to go snorking




now this was only our 3rd time snorking 2nd time was Castaway Cay 2 days before .The sea was quite rough and we found it hard going but enjoyed ourselves. Seen lots of coral and fish
Most of the group went snorking but you can just spend the time on the beach if you like
Forgot to take any money with us , to used to charging everything on our room card so was not able to buy the photos , but couldn't resisted taking a photo of the photo





The drive back was really really slow
this was the only part of the trip that we didn't like
at this stage we were tired and hungry and all sand
Think it would have been better if we were taken to the Park in a coach and then transfar to the open truck
We were left back at the shopping center and DH went back and got some money had a walk around but bought nothing
We met a few of our Dis friends there too
We went in to Senor frogs



but it was so loud we decided to head back onboard for lunch
It was really windly walking back to the ship


Back on board and there was more gifts waiting for us in our fish extender

After a quick wash and a bit to eat we went up on deck to watch us leaving Cozumel
There was one family just made it back on time


Tonights show was Twice Charmed . This is one of my favourite shows
We watch Guest artist Trevor Colton paint this picture
He was amazing dancing and painting at the same time and the ship was really really rough too I found it hard to stand



and we had dinner at Lumieres again
Don't think we had our nightly walk were to tired , Word on board was we might not be able to go to Gran Cayman tomorrow but will have to wait and see
Tonights towel animal was

Day 14 2nd Sea Day
Was woken up this morning by Bent telling us that we were not aloud to dock at Grand Cayman after all and were spending the day at sea
so went back to sleep for another while
We were meant to be doing the Aqua Boat and Snorkel Adventure on Grand Cay but I wasn't too disappointed as we were still tired after yesterdays excursion I think 2 in a row would have been tough going
Decide to have breakfast at Lumieres this morning as we were in no hurry to go anywhere
We were sitted byside Aunt Lynn and her family who we never met before and had a nice chat with them
It was lovely bumping into our Dis friends onboard all the time

We were told here that we were going to Key West tomorrow and shortly after this we were given a revised navigator for today
Micheal when to his club DH went to the gym Aidan was still in bed and I went to a Cooking demonstations , where the first thing I was given was more food and wine
Met a lovely lady and sat afterwards chatting , she was delighted to be going to KeyWest too as she was going to visit family for the day

Myself and Micheal gave out our fish extender gift and enjoyed seeing all the doors done up
Some of them are really good got the washing done too


Myself and Micheal went to the first showing of High school Musical 3
Learnth later that the girls at the club made Aidan go too , as usual we didn't see much of Aidan, only for he likes his food so much we might not have seen him at all
Spent some time chilling out at the pool
Decided to go for the Med cruise that we got priced a few days before so a quick visit to the Future cruise desk depoiset paid and we are booked again
I found the loungers on deck five and spend a lovely time just sitting reading my book and watching the sun set


There was no show tonight as we went to the early showing of HSM3

I'm enjoying re-living our trip through your report. It's nice seeing Aidan smiling in the photos; not all teenage boys will do that. 37 days since our cruise - thought this would be finished by now

glad to have you onboard
can't believe it is 37 days since we cruised where has the time gone
it's really hard finding the time to sit down and write a trip report up
I am only going with the order af our photos
but its a lovely way to relive the whole trip

All caught up and the cruise sounds lovely so far well except for it being a little rough.

Love the photos of your DS splashing in the puddles
