it was fun to talk like pirates all night, aarrgghh!

ok so we left off sining Disney tunes on the front of the boat.








when we were walking around we saw them setting up for the buffet!











aahh! the pirates are here!




wwweeeeee


fireworks at sea!






ok...I will be honest about the pirate party...it was a letdown. i was super excited about it...and I don't know why. We had way more fun at dinner! Now, I understand if you are a kid its super fun. they ha all these dance moves and stuff, but as an adult...I got really, really, bored. All I wanted to see was mickey come down, and the fireworks, which of course were at the very end. Next time we will skip all together or just come at the end for the fireworks.

As soon as the party was over my parents went to bed, and a line formed, FAST for the buffet. I wasn't feeling great, so bobby got in line and I went back to the room, got ready for bed and watched a movie.




Bobby came back to the room with his food. I have no idea how he carried it all, plus a drink!


he ate, I slept, we were both happy haha!

up next, day at sea!

Oh, I know what you mean about the Pirate Party. The fireworks are really what it's about. If they could maybe cut the singing/dancing/etc. down a bit, it might not be so bad...seems that just stretches on forever!

Great photos again!

I agree somewhat about the Pirate Party. I thought it was too long (especially when you're standing), and I kept thinking, when is Mickey coming. But I enjoyed it for the most part. Totally missed the buffet though.

Great trip report, I am really enjoying reading about your vacation.

Your husband is too funny! He is so excited to have gotten a turkey leg.
Did you order any room service on the ship?

What a beautiful picture. I've set it as my desktop. It'll help the next 57 days go by a little quicker.

I'm loving your TR! It sounds like you had a wonderful time.

We missed Castaway Cay due to the weather on our first cruise; we have a cruise booked on the Dream in 2011; hopefully it will work out this time!

Beautiful pictures!

bummer! thats one reason we chose the double dip...we did NOT want to miss CC, so we figure we would get to go at LEAST one out of the two times!

Sea Day!

our plans for this day were...well..not much! We knew we wanted to check out the adult pool, and we were hoping to get 4 chairs all together!

But first, breakfast at beach blanket!


We then headed out to the chairs, and magically we got the LAST FOUR padded chairs by the pool. I don't know how we lucked up! People were walking around like vulchers trying to get chairs!




I was really ito a book I was reading, so I read in my chair, then would go read in the pool, etc.
My dad and bobby get bored sitting and doing nothing at the pool so we only stayed an hour or so.


they could only take so much haha


so we headed inside to eat beach blanket for lunch. Our chairs were taken IMMEDIATELY. It's like they were watching!

I was a little disapointed with the sea day buffet. The embarking day lunch was SO much better.
Bobby seemed to like it though....what's new.


My mom and dad went to take naps, and Bobby and I headed to the gym. It was pretty uneventful, I watched world cup soccer on my little TV screen. I fisnihed before Bobby so i left and walked around the boat and then my mom and I delivered our FE gifts.

Late rmy mom and dad went to cove cafe to relax and get some coffee and I walked the decks looking for them and finally found them in there so I hung out with them for awhile.

That night was the optional dress up night. 5 night cruises don't technically have a "formal night" though. We were lucky our meal was in Tritons that night!

We got ready early so we could go take pictures in the lobby.
I willpost more later, AS USUAL photobucket is having loading issues. Does anyone else ever have this problem?

I'm sorry the pirate party was a disappointment. I agree, we had a lot of fun at dinner, and alot of people had great costumes, but the party was mostly for the kids. I enjoyed watching the kids enjoy the time. I didn't know there was a buffet at first - once we saw it, everything was gone already.
Looking forward to seeing your dress up night!

Great update! I was one of those vultures trying to get a chair at the adult pool!! There definitely aren't enough of them on sea days.

Seeing your beautiful pictures reminds me that we never did eat outside at Beach Blanket Buffet (or even step foot outside where the tables are). Darn, I meant to do that. Oh well, something for next time.

Ooh I like the padded chairs at the adult pool, they didn't have those the last time we were there. Your sea day seemed very relaxing, what it's meant for! Looking forward to hearing the rest of the day.
