Actually, I was just VERY observant in your earlier pictures as they came down the stairs and noticed who was there that you hadn't shown yet!!

Cinderella!! Do I get a prize?

I need to do something for my poor overworked laptop. I have a virus protection program, but now I need to add memory. I should get rid of some old programs and pictures that I've copied onto an external hard drive.
Ding! Ding! Ding! We have winner! Yeah, that wasn't too hard to guess. LOL!

Thanks. I wish my pictures came out better, but that lighting is hard to get something good. I even thought the ships photographer pictures weren't "that" great either, but better than mine. I really liked this set up. You got to see all the Princesses in one full swoop!

It was nice how they did it! Claire was excited. She loved getting a lot of signatures at once too.

What a perfect princess pictorama! Claire really looks to be enjoying herself. Is it me, or do you think these princesses are a bit better than in the parks? They seem to have an extra bit of sparkle to them? Maybe it's just me.....

Thanks. I do agree, I like the ship's Princesses much better. They seemed nicer and prettier too. I have seen som "not so pretty princesses" at the parks a few times.

Great princess pictures. I think Tiana is the most beautiful of the "princesses" there that Claire saw--she just radiates.

Oooohhhh Cinderella is next! She is my favorite and DD's too. Tiana has the prettiest dress though by far! I just love it! I hope we get to meet her since we have never had the chance either. Such a pretty place for the princess meet and greet by the grand staircase. I just wish they had Rapunzel out. And I love Claire's dress. It would be perfect for AK too.

She was really pretty! Claire's a little shy around them, but then she talks all about it afterwards!

I don't know. I "think" there was the last night. We didn't have portraits done that night. It was super busy when we walked by at one time, and I know they had 3 or 4 spots set up. I thought we could go back after dinner, but they were already packed up by then.

so glad you have your computer back and are updating again. What a great idea having all the princesses together at one time - Ariel is still my favorite (and this will age me!) - but Little Mermaid was the first Disney movie my kids saw, it had just come out when they were little and my sister sent me a copy of the VHS and my kids (and me and my husband LOL) fell in love with it - they had to watch it everyday during that summer. Can't wait to hear more!

Little Mermaid came out when my sister was little. I can't remember the year, but I think I might've been in high school. I never watched it till years later. never saw it in the theaters either. But it is one of my favorites. It has fabulous music!

Well it was Cinderella…of course!







And the photographers





That was fun…we had seen all the Princesses….or had we? Wait, ……What do I see? I look up and see ANOTHER Princess up on the next deck having a Meet and Greet as well.
It’s a must do for us, so we hike up a flight of stairs and get in line.

I took a few shots while we waited.

This is the Vista Café, tucked away in the corner.





And then it was our turn to visit one last Princess. She did a few Swirls for us!





Princess Minnie!!!!!









And the Photographers



After all the Meet and Greets it was time to get the Detective card so Claire and Mom could start a new adventure. Claire WAS NOT going to let us forget about this at all!









We now had our card in hand and activated. We had found that you could only activate a card to do this at certain times during the day…but I “think” you could do the actual adventure at any time of the day once you had the card. We also grabbed a map of where each picture was for the mission. There were 2 to choose from and Claire and Mom decided on one they wanted to do. The card would work for both though.

One more thing had to be done before they went off though. We needed lunch!
We hadn’t eaten since breakfast, and Claire hadn’t eaten much then. She griped a bit, but gave in when we told her there would be no mission unless she ate something. We headed to Cabanas to find that they had very little out at that time of day.

There was enough to make Claire happy though and I filled a plate for her.



Mom went off in search of the fast food services. She came back shortly and said she couldn’t find them, so I left her and Claire and went and looked. They were quite a ways down…on the other side of the pools. I got a plate of a few items for Mom and I and headed back. It was all decent food. I don’t have a picture of the wraps we had because they were so good we both gobbled them up immediately.



After we ate, we headed back to the room once again. Mom told me that she did talk to Dad (she had phone service in the Bahamas) and that he did make it to his sisters house. He was frazzled, but made it. He told her a bit about his day so far. My cousin and her family were also visiting and he said they had all left to go to the beach for the day, so he and my Aunt and Uncle were spending the day together.

I decided to stay in the room and get cleaned up while Mom and Claire went off on their mission…well actually Claire told me I wasn’t even allowed to come. LOL! She said it was something special for just her and Adda! (Pronounced Odd-ah…that’s what the kids call my Mom).

It sounds like you had such fabulous time on your cruise. I can't wait to hear about the Detective Card game.
