On the way back to the cabin, we met our stateroom host. We asked him if he could get a corkscrew for us. He said that this would not be a problem and if we needed it straight away. We told him that there was no rush and he promised that he would leave one for us later. I just assumed that he would bring one when he was coming in to turn down the bed, which would have been plenty early enough. 10 minutes later, it was knocking on the door and it was Rodolfo bringing our corkscrew.

I got changed and went downstairs to get some character photos. This evening, there were portraits with Woody and Jessie, which was a must do for me. I also got photos with Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket. There was also one character that I did not recognize at all. It was a clown. I had to ask the character escort what this character was. I was told that she was JoJo from the Playhouse Disney program JoJo's circus. She was pretty cute, had no line and Claire was taking the photos with her so I decided I might as well have some photos taken with her.






















Another photographer, Warwick, who was also from the UK and was rapidly becoming one of my favourites, was doing lifestyle photos. He did not eaxactly look rushed off his feet so I headed over there. He very diplomatically pointed out to me that those photos would require sitting down on the floor. I told him that was fine by me. Once the sitting photos had been done, he was jokingly saying that he could take some more photos, but this would require me lying down. I told him that this would not be an issue either. His face was a picture. Apparently he normally only does those kinds of shots with children and could not quite believe that I was actually up for this. I love the photos that were the result of this. What really amused me is that the next day there were a whole lot of photos in Shutters with adults lying down.









I had arranged to meet Graham by the adult pool again so that we could get a swim after all. On the way, I decided to go to Mickey's Mates. For the European cruises, they were offering Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique on the ship. This is something that the big kid in me always wanted to do, but I could never justify it at Walt Disney World. On the ship it was a different proposition and formal night seemed to be the perfect opportunity. So I went to ask if they would be OK to do this for an adult and they said that this would be fine. By this time I had lost all concept of time. I asked them when formal night was and was told it would be on 24th September. I asked if they had an early evening appointment and they told me that the last appointment was at 15:00. This seemed rather strange and I suppose this should have set off the alarm bells there and then, but you do not expect staff to give you wrong information. I even commented on the fact that it seems to be a bit weird to offer the appointments so early in the day as this would be too early even for people on early dinner. She said that she would speak to her manager to see if they could accommodate me later. She rang and the manager said no. I was fine with this and was ready to walk away. She then said that she would try to convince her manager and took my cabin number so that she could leave me a message.

I got my swim stuff and joined Graham in the pool. This time we actually had to share the pool for a bit. Once we had our swim, we spent some time in the Rainforest Room.

Dinner that might was the rotational menu at Parrot Cay. Graham ended up with Island-spiced Seared Ahi Tuna, Green Asperagus and Crab Meat soup and the mixed grill. For dessert, he chose the Lemon Meringue Pie. I had the Jamaican Chicken Tenderloins and the West Indies Romaine Salad. I was teased mercilessly by our server for this. He told me that I must prefer our assistant server to him. I had absolutely no idea where this was coming from. He repeated this again and explained as our assistant server was from Jamaica and his name was Romaine, my choices must mean that I prefer him. For my main course, I chose Braised Jerk-seasoned Pork Chop with Cornmeal Cakes. I was more than a little tempted to tell him that I had chosen this in his honour as he was being a jerk. For my dessert I decided to try the Chocolate S'More Vanilla Cake, which was extremely yummy.

After dinner we headed back to our cabin. As per usual, I looked straight to the bed to see what towel animal we had been left. There was just the Navigator and some chocolates on the bed. The towel animal was actually hanging from a coat hanger. We had received a Bird of Paradise on a towel perch.



The message light was blinking. It was the member of Mickey's Mates I had spoken to earlier to confirm that her manager had agreed to a later appointment for me and to come to the shop the next day to firm up arrangements.

I put back the clock another hour, put on an extra layer and kissed Graham good night. Then I headed out again. They were opening the Oceaneer's Lab (one of the Kid's clubs) to adults that night for a session of Adult Flubber. I had never seen any of the kid's clubs before so I decided to go. I was directed to the seating area. We were first shown a clip from the film Flubber. We were then asked to sit down at the tables. At this stage, the mad scientist entered. She looked a picture and was absolutely hilarious. I definitely hope that Flubber for the kids is different as this definitely contained some humour that was strictly for adults only. To start of with, we were each given a balloon and were given instructions to blow this up to a certain size and draw a face on it. The mad scientist had a metal container about the size of a cookie jar which was partially filled with liquid nitrogen. She asked people in turn to hand her their balloons and she proceeded to put those balloons into the container. In the end, she must have had about 20 balloons in there. Once the container was full, she took the balloons out again and they slowly returned to their original size.

Once the balloon trick was completed, we started on the actual Flubber. Between two people we were given two measuring cups in different sizes, a bottle of craft glue and a wooden stirrer. We were instructed to fill the bigger measuring cup with glue up to a specified level. They then game round with water and added this to the glue and also to the little measuring cup. They also added a White powder to the smaller measuring cup, which was the cue for an awful joke. We were then asked to mix in the powder with the water as well as stirring the water and glue mixture. Food colouring was then added to this to turn it green. The last step was to mix the content of the smaller cup into the glue mixture and give it a good stir. This then turned it into a Flubber-like substance. We were told to roll it into a ball, which turned out to be a little messy, and were given a plastic bag to put the Flubber in so that we could take it with us. The whole activity was pure comedy.

I headed back to our cabin, removed the rest of the Flubber from my fingers and went to bed.

I remember seeing you do this photo session. You looked like you were having so much fun and it shows in the pictures.

It was definitely a lot of fun. The irony is that I normally absolutely hate having my photo taken and they are normally not very good. I even hate my wedding photos. The photographers on the Magic are not only very talented, but they have great personalities as well.

What a fab day!! I love all the photo's, especially the one's of you, Woody & Jessie.

Did you book the Madiera tour direct with Disney or was it privately arranged? I am getting so many fab ideas from you for my WBTA next year.

This was privately arranged. Somebody from the DIS got in touch with a company called Daniel Taxi and they tailor-made the tour for us. From what the organizer shared with us, they have been an absolute joy to deal with. In the end 98 people did that tour. They also offer similar tours in taxis that hold up to 4 people. You can find more information here:

Day 8

This was the first of 5 “relaxing” sea days in a row. If you have followed the trip report so far, then you know that there won’t be anything relaxing about it, but the sea days were hugely enjoyable. As per usual, Mickey called at 7:00 to wake us up and we headed for the stretching class, which was again on deck 10 in the Wide World of Sports Area. Initially I was a little reluctant, but this had become an important part of my daily routine and I actually started to feel big benefits from this. I could feel from day to day that I was becoming more flexible. We went back to the gym after the class and had a bit of a workout. From there it was straight down to deck 4 for Walk A Mile.

After all this exercise, we went to Lumiere’s for some breakfast. Graham had fresh fruit with Granola and yoghurt followed by a cooked breakfast and I had a Mango Smoothie with Granola followed by Eggs Benedict. This might have turned me off Eggs Benedict forever. I had a near miss with Eggs Benedict at Lumiere’s before, when the Hollandaise tasted like custard one morning on the Med cruise. I was not too upset about this as in a funny way, this actually worked. This time round the Hollandaise just tasted of raw vinegar. I hate vinegar at the best of times and this was just awful. I know I should probably have complained, but I did not want any fuss. I just ate what came with it and got on with my day.

There were plenty of photo opportunities mid morning. I got there a bit early and just sat down in the atrium to watch the world go by. Graham joined me. We were soon joined by another couple from the cruise meet thread and we chatted for a while. Graham hung around for a while when the characters were out, but soon went off to do his own thing. I managed to get photos of Mickey in his Italian costume, Donald in his French costume, Belle, Minnie in her Italian costume, Daisy in her French costume, Pluto, Chip and Dale in their Italian costumes, Donald in his Italian costume and Goofy in his French costume.























After the photos were taken, I had still a bit of time left before I would meet Graham for lunch. So I headed up to Mickey’s Mates to sort out my appointment for Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique. I had double-checked the schedule that morning and noticed that they had given me the wrong date for formal night. Formal night was not on the 24th, but on 25th September. When I got there, I said that I had noticed that formal night was a different night and asked for an appointment on 25th September. The timings on that day made a lot more sense. I managed to get an 18:30 appointment, which was perfect. I hung around a bit longer looking at some of the 2010 merchandise, when I heard another member of staff speaking to the colleague that made my appointment. To her credit, I think she genuinely believed that I had left the shop. I could overhear her saying how unfair it was that I just came in and changed the date. I was absolutely floored. It was them who gave me the wrong date and I was just putting right their mistake. I made it very clear from the start that I wanted to do this on formal night. If anything, I would have expected them to apologize for the mix up, but was OK with the fact that they didn’t. However, then having a go at me behind my back for trying to sort out the mess that they created was a bit rich. I was so tempted to turn around and just cancel full stop. Instead I quietly left the shop.

I met Graham near Parrot Cay, where we had lunch. After lunch I showed him where he needed to go for the beer tasting that I had booked for him for that afternoon. I then went to get changed for my next commitment.

Some of the ladies had arranged to meet for a Champagne Girls Party. This had been done on previous cruises and we decided that this would be a bit of fun. Initially we had tried to get DCL to organize the champagne tasting, but they were not very forthcoming. So we decided to do this ourselves. Everybody was dressing in pink, wearing tiaras and boas and we were each bringing a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine. I had managed to get a nice pink dress in the sales and also bought a pink tiara. Unfortunately it was the style with the comb that would not stay on at all as my hair is so fine. I passed on the boa as I hate the texture. The person who had organized this had brought spare tiaras so I used one of those.

Before the cruise, about 20 women had signed up for this and one of the members of our cruise meet thread had kindly offered to host this in her suite. With 20 people, this would have been perfect. Unfortunately on the day about three times as many people turned up and this was not fun. It was just way too crowded. When we signed up, we were asked to bring a glass each. I kept the glasses that we were left with the stateroom gift and brought one of them. I think I was the only one who did. Sue had asked for some glasses from room service expecting the original 20 people. So there were not enough glasses to go round either. I was more than a little relieved when somebody suggested that we should head for the landing to have some photos taken. We tried doing this just on the stairs, but there were too many of us. So somebody suggested that we should go down to deck 6 and the photos were taken from a balcony on deck 8. This worked fantastically well.



After the photos were taken, most people headed back to the suite. In the meantime, extra glasses had arrived and some people had left. There were still far too many people for the space available and I left soon after. I did get a taste of both an Australian sparkling wine and some Fairy Tale Cuvee before I left though.

I slowly made my way down to deck 4. Mickey was supposed to be coming for photos just outside the Walt Disney Theater. When I got there, there was some kind of signing in progress and it did not look as if this was going to finish anytime soon. I still decided to hang around. Shortly afterwards the photographer and Mickey turned up. It was decided that the photos would be taken outside on deck 4.





Once I had my photo taken, I headed back to the cabin to get changed again and to chill out for a bit. I was reading, but must have fallen asleep at some stage. Fortunately I woke up in time to meet Graham on Beat Street for the next installment of Desperate Shipmates.

I got there quite early, but Graham was already there. He had made himself comfortable in one of the large portholes. They had split the group from the day before into two and we were in the second group. Some people from the first group were late and they were not allowed in. This was very unlike Disney to exclude latecomers.

Soon it was our turn. This session took place in Diversions. Once everybody was sat down, the characters came in. The Creepier Twins were sharing this “meeting” and advised us that they we are in grave danger as the captain had lost control over the ship and we were heading straight for the Bermuda triangle. We then observed how the other characters reacted to this and how they interacted with each other. Most of them stormed off one after the other. The Creepier twin then proceeded to tell us that they knew who had kidnapped Dr Shadowski and had control of the navigation device and therefore the ship. Suddenly there was a loud crackling noise, flickering lights, smoke and then darkness. When the lights came back on, the twins had disappeared. Officer Curt took charge and decided that the venue was not safe. We were led down a backstage passageway that contained a number of visual puns. This passageway led us to the Walt Disney Theater, were we found a “cleaner” in front of an open trapdoor. We were told that this trapdoor was leading to the staterooms. We were each given a card with the details for the next installments and were dismissed.

Graham and I arranged when we would meet back in the cabin and I headed off to have some more photos taken. I had photos taken with Alice and the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and Stitch. I was especially looking forward to meeting Stitch. Not only is he one of my favourite characters and the favourite to have photos taken with, I also had brought the wallet that I had printed with a photo of Stitch and me to show to him. Of course, he took it off me and tried to hide it underneath his armpit. This resulted in me tickling Stitch until he gave it back to me. Once the wallet was safely with his escort, I had some fantastic photos taken with Stitch.



















After I had all the photos taken that I wanted, I headed back to the cabin to get changed for Villains Night. Graham helped me to get the dress on. Unfortunately it has an old-fashioned metal zip, which was not very cooperative. Graham ended up using my jewellery making pliers to get this done up. Once I was dressed and had put up my hair and added the fascinator, we headed down to deck 4. I don’t often go and see the shows and Graham had never seen a show on the ship before. However, I really wanted to see the new Villains Tonight show. This had premiered just before the Eastbound Transatlantic cruise and when we were on the Med cruise, this was only the third time that this was shown. The verdict at that time was damning, but I heard that they had tweaked it since and I was determined to see it this time. Based on how much Graham was enjoying Desperate Shipmates, I convinced him to come along. I thought that this show might appeal to his sense of humour.
We got there in plenty of time and decided to get some Virgin Pina Coladas from Preludes. This is where I made a tactical error. Graham had offered to carry my drink for me. Stubborn and independent minded that I am, I declined. Well, floor-length evening gown, mask in one hand and cocktail glass in the other really does not work out. I ended up spilling some of my drink down the dress.

The show was seriously funny. “Villains Tonight!” begins as Hades and his faithful sidekicks, Pain and Panic, welcome new souls to the Underworld. But instead of a frightening realm, guests will discover that Hades has turned the Underworld into an upbeat and happier place. The lively fun comes to a halt when The Fates arrive and predict that Hades will lose his position as Lord of the Underworld if he doesn’t ramp up the evil factor. Worried by the news, Hades checks his Evil-O-Meter and discovers it is running dangerously low. So he comes up with a plan: He’ll conjure up the very best of the worst – the most powerful Disney villains – to help him replenish the world of evil. (Summary courtesy of Stitch Kingdom) Rather than scary, this show is absolutely hilarious. I do not really rate this as a family show though. Some of humour was definitely aimed more at an adult audience. There was not anything that I would classify as naughty, but a lot of the humour that made the show would have gone straight over the heads of kids. We both enjoyed it and I was glad that I have seen this. However, I doubt that I will go and see this again. This is not the kind of show that you can enjoy time and time again.

After the show, we headed down to the atrium, where I had my photo taken with Captain Hook and Mr Smee and with Cinderella and Perla.









Our favourite photographer Claire was taking photos against a black backdrop and we decided to get in line for this. The line was moving very slowly, but the photos were well worth the wait.













Once we had our photos taken, it was time to head for dinner. Graham ended up with Jafar’s Caramelized Bay Scallops, Broccoli and Maytag Blue Cheese Soup and Oven-roasted Duckling. I had Crispy Cheese Ravioli, Cruella DeVil’s Sangria Bisque and Yachtsman Steakhouse Grilled NY Strip. Neither of us fancied dessert and as I was quite cold, we left before dessert was served. I noticed that this time round the ship was colder than usual. The outside temperature throughout the cruise was lovely, but I was often cold inside.
We headed straight up to the cabin. I took a quick photo of our latest towel animal, a snake, and then went to bed and went straight to sleep.

Corinna,,,,I am sorry you had a problem with the folks in Mickeys Mates. I hope you said something on your survey. That was just not right what that CM did, someone else could have heard her and got a bad impression as well. She needs to be taught better customer service.

I was so happy when we saw Jason and Erik go by to get them to take our pictures.

I am loving your trip report again. You have got some lovely photos of you and Graham, really nice.

I must admit I really like the "white" background photos, they make the characters stand out so much more

Some lovely dresses of yours as well
