Talking New Year Eve on the Wonder (With a Service Dog)

This was are 3rd cruise on the Wonder(and best by FAR). It was Joy (DW), Shadow (D Dog) & myself this time.

A little bit about myself. I'm a disabled veteran, I have a service dog named Shadow. This was Shadows 3rd time on the ship. The most asked question is, "Were does he potty". Here's a photo we took the first time.


This time when we got into are stateroom, Shadow needed to "potty". He knew where to go on the veranda. The kiddie pool was there but there was no grass in the pool. Shadow looked at the pool for a min, then me to say,"Where is the Green stuff". I got on the phone quickly to get the grass. When I was on the phone the "grass" got here in a box. The worker said the shipment of sod was late.

After the life boat drill, we went to the sail away party. After that we saw the "Golden Mickeys"

It was New Year Eve, for dinner it was "formal night". Most of the people were in Fancy gowns and suits. I felt under dressed. They had a special menu(that we took). At dinner they gave us hats & tiaras to wear.


At 11 the party started. About 11:45 we got a free glass (or 2) of Champagne. The young ones got grape juice in the same glasses. They had the count down then the Balloon drop in the Atrium. Looked like New York City lol. Donald was dressed as "Baby New Year" & Goofy was "Old Man Time"


I will write more later. I need to start my day!

Ooh! That's a new thing I learned today, now I won't be wondering where service dogs go potty in ships... I wonder if people will believe me when I just tell them: "Oh a plastic kiddie pool with some grass in it"

Awesome trip report, can't wait to read more!

Very interesting & something you don't see every day on a cruise ship.
I love Shadow's little shoes.

Day 2

Well we woke up about 10 am. (we stayed up till 2am) Did i tell you we left the kids home on this trip? The kids were mad. They will get over it, we are going on the Wonder for Spring Break in March. (They don't know yet.)

It was are sea day. It was chilly (73) & windy. Joy had a manicure & pedicure at the Spa in the afternoon. The manicurist was scared to death of Shadow. (Shadow is a lover) oh well...When we payed for manicure & pedicure, I noticed a sign for Massage, Facial, Champagne, Chocolate &the Forest Rain room $125. I said "Joy you should do that". The Spa worker said" We can do that for couples too". Long story cut short i was "talked into it". We set it up for the next day. The was Show was Toy Story. I was just "OK" I loved Hercules wished it was still there.

We ate dinner at Tritons

3rd day Nassau

We got up we went to the straw market. We were looking for local art. My wife came home with 2 pocket books.



After lunch we headed to the Spa. This was for my "Massage, Facial" and my last lol It was nice but on the way back to are room we ran into Jack.


My red was still red from the Facial....She said "i look 5 years younger"
