ETA: Holy cow, those pics of The Dream are stunning! No wonder you were blown away. Gorgeous!
Glad you found me. I have been thinking of putting something on the regular board to direct people to my TR. I have had several messages of people asking me if I started yet.

The inside rooms look awesome too. In fact on some sailings the inside room costs more than an ocean veiw room.
IH, and under the bed there is a ton of room for luggage. In fact one went way back under the bed for us and we had to make Claire crawl under to fetch it!

I can't wait to read more and see more pics!

Happy Easter, Jen and family!

It does make sense. It was just so mezmorizing!

Happy Easter to you too!

Oh my gosh Jen, I don't blame you one bit for not remembering what the castmember said to you. The ship is gorgeous!

Talking

I've been lurking and just had to say that the first thing I thought of when I woke up was I hope there is a new post on her trip! Thank you so much for posting as you go. I almost feel as if I'm there with you!

Sometimes there is too much storage... on our Alaska cruise on RC somehow, even though I knew where I'd put it, when we packed up, some of Heidi's head bands and other hair accessories, like her brush, got left behind. The left and right mirror segments pulled forward and there were compartments behind it. They were in there, but somehow got left. I guess its worthy double checking the packing list before leaving to make sure all stowed items are located.

I am loving your trip report, I love when people take the time to include a lot of detail! I really appreciate you writing everything up!
The Dream just looks SO MAGICAL! I love Claire's face in the pictures with her in the chair, so cute!
I can't wait to read more!

It is so pretty. Just stunning. Words can't describe it and pictures can't do it justice!

Happy Easter. Isn't it pretty. I kept taking pictures of it through out the cruise too.

Thanks. I wish I would've taken the time to take even more. Sometimes I would think "come back later and take a picture" and I never did for some things.

Yes, we did a lot of looking a re-looking when it was time to pack up. We wanted to be sure we had everything.

It is so Magical. Sometimes Claire likes to be my subject...and sometimes she doesn't. Thanks for reading along

We now entered the District area. This is the area with all the bars. We walked through here many times as well, but never actually came and had a drink or enjoyed any entertainment. It was very neat looking though.





Must follow the Star path!



“Come on Mom! You are going to slow!”







We reached the back of the ship and made our way up a few decks to Cabanas.



There was a slight line up, but it moved fast. As you walk in the CM’s hand you a sanitizer wipe for you hands. Another CM will ask how many in your group and then seat you at a table.



This was our view. On a sunny day it would be an excellent view. Today it was a drizzly view. I’m not complaining, but it would’ve been extra nice to have the sun out.



Looks like the rain is back!

I went up and got Claire’s food first. The buffet seemed endless. It went on forever.







I went up and got my food then.



And then Mom took her turn.

After we filled up on the main courses we also got a few desserts.



This was an awning/shade type thing on the top of the windows.



It was now about 1:40ish. We decided to finish up and head to see if our room was ready.
