If I'd had a bit more time I would have tried to focus on the ship




Walking back down the hill



Me and DH with the guide



The price list for entrance to the castle



Waking past a store I spotted this - I used to collect the stickers and albums



Our guide mentioned the cathedral in the back ground at the begining of the tour and DH wanted me to take a picture of it. Also in this shot you can see where the coach dropped us off and picked us up from. It's behind those parked cars on the left



When the coach driver was coming down the road he scraped the side of a car (which turns out was parked with the back sticking out) and so we had to wait for the police to come and sort it out (the coach driver and the lady who owned the car were arguing about who was to blame), it made a really loud sound as it hapened

Here is a shot of where it was damaged



This port is a tender port (you have to get on a smaller boat to get to and from the ship) - it was too cold on the way there to sit outside but got a front seat upstairs on the way back







It seemed to stay the same small size for ages until we were right up next to it!







Before dinner we ran in these guys



No DH hadn't shrunk - there was a little kiddie there!



We followed them out on deck



Oh no he spotted us!





We were a bit peckish before dinner so we went to Diversions



They had chips, salsa, guacamole, hot dogs and some other warm items









I also got a frozen strawberry margarita

Tonight was pirate night

I love the menu design







Pot stickers



I think this was a crab cake



Chicken salad



Strawberry soup



Fish



Ribs



I think it took me this long to notice there was a DCL logo on the plates



Steak and chips (fries)



I think this was fish



Desserts



I think this was the no sugar added cheesecake











Up on deck the party had already started, we didn't have a good view of the stage but we were in the right spot to see the fireworks. Mickey didn't do his zip line thing but appeared on the stage

A quick drink before bed - it was a cold night



We came back to a towel monkey

Today was a sea day and we had a Palo brunch booked!

Eggs benedict



Chicken parmesan



I think this was pork



Fruit flat bread - this was so yummy!



Margarita



Blue cheese and grapes



Pepperoni



I think I only tried a bite of three of these, I managed most of the chocolate mouse (top right) I was rather full up!



Pete had organised a Dis meet in Studio Sea, setting up



Goodies donated by auntlynne





We had a lovely assortment of food





The orange looks like a hidden Mickey





They don't look like spring rolls to me!



There they are!



We had a good look around the shops (they don't open whilst in port and with so much time spent off the ship and eating late we never seemed to have the time or energy to have a look)

Dooney and Bourkes!
This was my favourite design I'd seen so far but now they are doing the drawing style with different colour backgrounds I prefer those!

Tonight was the Villians Tonight show (the only one we saw).
Some of these pics are a bit out of focus but I'll post them anyway so you can see what it's like.
I really enjoyed it esp. the bit with Yzma and Kronk!













The back grounds and stage effects with Dr. Facilier were excellent













I love the look Kronk has on his face

Ravioli



Melon and parma ham



Asparagus with grapefruit



Seafood rissotto

Another salad!



Soup



This was my entree, smoked duck salad



Gnocchi



Seafood pasta



Steak



I think this was turkey



On to desserts!









We came back to this fella in our room



I thought the chocolates looked better as eyes!

That's the first time I've seen pics of the Villains Tonight show - thanks for sharing them. I'm looking forward to seeing the show next month.

What a great photo of you guys with Daisy and Donald, too!

You have to do Palo's. Are you still going in December? It's a shame Kate can't make it, I was really looking forward to you guys being there. But it's awesome news she found a job.
I love that pic too, we didn't really think much to the ones they took onboard we did get a couple, Captain Jack was brilliant

We both loved the show, it's definately a different spin on things and very funny - lots of current themes in the jokes. I would see it again, we have also seen the Toy Story one and while we liked it we wouldn't go to see it again.

Hi Becky!
Thanks for your message!

It's great that Kate has a job but I am in two minds after we found out that she can't come about whether to cancel - I would love to have done the cruise with her and she is gutted that she is missing it.

I asked Tracy for another quote for a cheaper stateroom (cat 9 rather than 6) and at the moment I am still going as a solo (DH will be with me at WDW for a week but leaves the day before the cruise). I'm feeling rather anxious about it though and still may back out!! I would like to come because the last one sounded like so much fun. I like talking to people (I do it all day long for my job!) so that's not the issue - it's just that it will feel weird to do it on my own. I haven't announced my solo status on the podcast cruise board yet - have till end of September to decide!! I'll keep you posted!
