LOLOLOLOL! We were there too! We walked in...not another soul in the bar. We ended up in Skyline. Sorry we missed you!

Loving your trip report. We must have had the same dining rotation too. 6pm dinner ERAA. We had terrible service on night 1, but discussed it with server and head server and from then on out things were definitely better. Can't wait to read more!

I'm loving your TR! It's neat to read a cruise TR, I haven't done that before.

The Dream looks like a neat ship with lots of interesting activities...I was salivating over that mixology class!

Great report! I never knew there was such a thing as the Mixology class, so now you've done it! Another "must do" goes on the list.

Looking forward to your Remy report. I think I'd better make sure I've eaten first, though

If you've read my other reports, you know, I love creme brulee! I really liked this one even if I only allowed myself to eat half of it because of my 2nd dessert. (Also I have no idea why my server brought us out a plate of cherries)




It was so good.
Mango Cheesecake with whipped cream and fruits



No complaints out of him while he finished the entire thing!

Overall this meal went way better than our meal at Enchanted Garden. The pacing was better. In fact, we were happy when our head server actually introduced herself, seemed friendly, and we made sure she was aware that it was our anniversary on this cruise. I learned later I shouldn't be happy about such things.

As we finished up our meal, we decided to head to Evolution to enjoy Match Your Mate, or at least so we thought.
I love your TR!!!! I am experiencing a major Disney Dream food coma by sight and haven't even physically eaten any of the food. This "young" padawan is learning many from master Yoda.......Must lose 20 pounds to gain 20 back on the Dream....

You must have been that couple that was leaving as we were coming in then. We just missed each other!

That was our dining rotation. Our first night service was awful but our head server never came over and honestly the only time I saw here was for the 2 minutes on Royal Palace evening. I made sure I made comments about it on my survey

Thanks! Hopefully my laptop will behave (i'm having issues turning it on today) and I can get the rest of Day 2 up. I understand being addicted to the boards!

I'm glad you came over to the cruise area to read my report! It really is a great ship especially for adults and kids.

Yay for more 'must dos' there really are so many on these cruises you never can seem to fit them all in. Remy was amazing!

Hehe I understand all about the Disney food comas. Luckily I never seem to gain weight from vacations so it evens out. I definitely do not eat this well or much at home thats for sure!

Villains Tonight Part 1


At 8:30pm, we headed down and across the ship to the Walt Disney Theatre. We went for the seats where I had been the night before - Port Box Seats. It allowed for me to get some really nice pictures without having to worry too much about the people sitting behind me seeing the LCD screen.

My husband and I really enjoyed this show, even with the snafu! It did have a different tone to it than the other shows so I can see why certain people might not like it but for my husband and I, it was our favorite show of them all.

































As the show was transitioning to the next scene - well it broke.



The lift wouldn't go up!

They quickly called in a cruise staff person to host some trivia for the audience and give away some prizes.



Some people got up and left because they didn't want to wait.

Late Evening Fun


After the show, my husband decided he was ready for bed. I had mentioned on our cruise date thread that 10:30pm at Skyline on Nassau would be a good time to meet up. Well I showed up and ordered a Manhattan. I loved the light up menus for the bar!

Well no one showed.

By 10:45pm, I gave up and headed into Evolution to watch the rest of the late version of Match Your Mate. It was a hoot! I'm glad the medieval couple ended up winning. Once the show was over, I decided to call it a night and headed back to the room for sleep.

Sorry we never made it to any of the meets. I'm glad you finally got to enjoy Match Your Mate, though! We were back in our room with the kiddos enjoying a drink on our veranda.

What a shame other families left the show early. The photos look great! We'll be on the Wonder, wish we could see this show! Thank you for the photos!

I understand! Its vacation and meet ups just seem to not happen sometimes. Enjoying a drink on the veranda sounds like a great way to spend an evening! I think next cruise we will end up going for the veranda as my husband and I spent more time in the room than I orginally thought we would.

Yeah, its sad that people left when the show had the glitch but Disney did a good job trying to recover from the issue. Hopefully the pictures made it seem like you were there! The Wonder has amazing shows of its own :D
