Yes, shelves. They might just be in the cabins that sleep 5...the whole desk area was super long.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!
I guess Rainy Days are definitely a "turn on"!

Wow, thanks so much for sharing!! I love seeing the pictures!

Were you invited to the special receptions because you are a TA or because you booked the Christening Cruise? Just wondering.

Don't sweat the absences. It is not like it is a two week cruise. It is just because teachers are getting yelled at all the time about the all-holy standardized tests. I am a high school teacher and our SCHOOL sends the Hockey team and the cheerleaders to Disney each year! I always say I wish they'd send me! I keep hoping some girl decides to join the Hockey team so I can sell my story to the coach

Your daughter's sundress is ADORABLE btw!

Do the bars and lounges have enough seating (I turned 30 and don't like to go places I can't sit anymore! lol)?

What a shame about DD5 not getting on the aquaduck just out of interest what is the height restriction? Can I ask about the kids club, did all your kids go into the same club or were they in different ones? My kids will be 3, 6 and 9 when we travel, previous cruises we only had DS and he was not interested at all but this time they all can't wait

You were in a room that sleeps five, did the couch go into a double bed and then a bunk above?

Bet you can't wait to get back on

I believe it's 48 inches.

Wow, I wish my kids were at your school .

The special receptions and things (and I missed the one onboard for TAs because I'm a slacker) were for certain invitees of the Christening Cruise. There wasn't just TAs, there was also a lot of media. But if you were invited on the cruise, then it was likely you were invited to some other special things as well, like the MK event and something onboard, as well as the Christening ceremony.

Yes, plenty of seating. DLounge is huge. Evolutions also has a lot of seating. Pink, The District Lounge, and Skyline have much less seating. 687 was about average seating. It was pretty full, and there were seats for everyone that wanted to sit.

It is 48 inches, same as Rock N Roller Coaster .

The kids clubs are sort of merged...they are separated by classroom type areas. I will post more pictures of the clubs. They CAN be in the same areas if they want. All of my kids adore them but the twins were in the Edge this time since they are 11.

The couch went to a single, there was a pull out single murphy bed behind that chair in the corner, and then a pull down upper berth. I took pictures but somehow deleted that one

Yes, I really can't wait!

I really, really enjoyed the nightclubs, they were very cool! And staff was good. Dining staff was somewhat slow, I imagine that will improve once they get used to it more, it really depends on if you get a new server or an experienced one. Grisell was telling us that there was a lot of confusion at first because some people did things the "Wonder" way and some people did things the "Magic" way and the supervisors would correct staff based on what ship they came from and the newbies were totally baffled!

good to hear the nightclubs were cool, I usually spend my nights in the night club so good to hear, this time I'll most likely be in the sports bar on the first cruise of my back-2-back since it's allstar weekend so hopefully they will show some of that
