We commented on our cruise we couldn't believe they would remind us of the Titanic while we were on a cruise ship!

You look GORGEOUS girlfriend!!
aww thank you.. amazing what a pair of spanx does for a gal

This is another GORGEOUS photo- very worth the OUCH!
Thanks, I sort of wish I would have grabbed my glasses too.. but then I sort of feel like it makes me look like a Mob Wife, and were all mafioso LOL

Yea- you have them well trained- our cabin looked like a crime scene after formal night
That was in the back of my mind while I was threatening.. i mean addressing to them how to nicly hang up their crud LOL

My guess is you should have brought 7 bottles.....
Live and learn!!!

Do ya think he was scared when he saw you come in?
HA I think I was more scared wondering if he would heckle me again, but then thought he doesnt change his routine for the nightly shows so no way he could come up with something in a matter of 2 hours LOL

You really get a LOT done at night!! Sounds like it was a really good time. Gotta run-
Im a night owl, i hate to miss ANYTHING.. except for the occational show, during a "nap"

I was so against them in their shades.. I knew it would make that white type of spot on their lens's and I just "KNEW" i wasnt going to buy it.. ha and here it turned out the best. thanks

aww thanks hun, im not even finished yet.. half way there. But getting a groove again with no "goal" is hard. At least this I had this cruise to work towards but now its.. well just to get fit LMAO so not as exciting as having a vacation to work towards.

I also take all the free toiletries I can get my hands on too! I probably have three cosmetics bags FULL of crap I've taken from hotels & ships over the past year!
oh so good to hear im not the only one. I gave the Disney soap out to my coworkers after our WDW trip as a thank you.. lol cheap and easy just like me!

So when are you going on your next cruise? I want to come with you! I honestly think you and I are long lost drinking/booze cruisen sisters.
~Harmony
No clue, , we weren planning anything in 2012 cuz E was slated to go to Korea, but that was canked cuz they may be going to Afgan... in 2013 so.. who knows when. Sadly the Marine Corps still doesnt get that I have a disease where I need to plan a vacation.

It seems like you are experiencing some of the same we did on RCCL, although maybe you are having better desserts, and could bring your own soda on. And your other refreshments. They find ways to upcharge alot of things, so your cheaper cruise costs more than you planned - if you fall for it.
So true... its all about sticking to a budget..more or less

I see the chocolate dessert was a Disney poser!
Had to get a lil Mickey in on the deal LOL

Okay, the guy behind E with the wedgy - I didn't see E on my screen at first, and I was wondering why you had this couple there, especially because the guy looks like he's in pain
When I took the pic I didnt even notice HIM. I was taking it to make fun of E and his head cover.. LOL I will say people had no issues with self confidence on Carny. They wore it loud they wore it proud!

You all cleaned up real nice for formal night! I had to laugh at your pic background. They had the same one on Liberty - looks alot like Titanic to me! Love the shoes with the suit! They look great on E - don't think Jim could pull it off.
I noticed in my pic that there is a glass of wine.. so perfect that it made it LOL. Oh but Jim can pull off uggs.. E couldnt so they are 1 and 1 if we were keeping score LOL

The serenade was Hi-Larious!
E missed it cuz he was checking J into the club, told him I was hit on, he said by what a plate on your head.. HA funny man, i think not lol.

Heya...glad I'm not missing much over here..I'm hopelessly behind on all my TR's. I've been sick as a DOG for two days now and I'm just finally able to get out of bed. Dang Disney germs I guess. Well anyway now that we're back, let the show go on!

Post Monday 3-28 2nd Sea Day

**** hi all, sorry Ive been lagging work has been crazy, boys just finished off school and we just signed our lives away to build a pool AHHH. So that boils down to no more cruises for a least a year or 2.. unless its a steal of a deal or as E says I better enter a bunch of contest to win one LOL. Since we have the long weekend off I was finally able to bust out a full day on the trip report. Hope you enjoy. Were off to a BBQ now which sucks cuz its freezing here (Kara that means its 70 and breezy.. yup break out the parkas LOL! Hope everyone enjoys their memorial holiday! ***

Amazing Race

I woke up around 7am to wait for the room service guy. He was here by 715 w/my coffee. Have I mentioned I Love room service. Had a cup o’ joe on the balcony with a danish, while reading my book and listening to the waves. Balcony was wet so it looks liked it rained overnight. Once I was "awake" which on vacation equals about half a pot of coffee and Kalua. I debated going to the gym but breakfast beat it out. But E got up and went to the gym he‘s so dedicated. P woke up so I sent him to the lido deck to get cereal for him bring back to the room while I showered. We woke Sleeping Beauty up (J) and they ate while I had more coffee and finished getting ready. As we were done E came back from his time at the gym we told him to meet us on the lido deck for bingo.

$1000 jackpot here we come!


Cost us $20 a ticket times 3 tickets, that’s a lot of DOTD, but the boys love bingo. Points for the mouse, as they had no one directing anyone where to get the cards, and once you did figure out where to get them they didn’t have it hooked to your S&S card, they had to write it out on a paper receipt so it took twice as long.

Disney always seemed more organized and connected to the 21st century to make things run smoother.


I also got us a pull tab type game (you pull the tabs I know Im so descriptive and get instant chances to win drinks, toys, prices etc) So we watched as others won bingo, J was close needed 2 numbers to finish his X to win ME some money.. but didn’t happen. None of our pull tabs won anything either. After that we decided to head back to the cabin to change as us losers didnt feel like doing anything else but hitting the pool to drown our sorrows.

It was overcast and we thought it was going to rain but by the time bingo was over the sun was up and HOT. So we headed down to change and pack a pool bag then headed back out to hunt down a chair hog. There was nothing even close to the pool so we had to go up on deck 12 near the kids club/serenity adult area (ya one side is the kids club other side of the ship is the adult area.. Odd IMO)

The boys hit the slide so we didn’t have to worry about them in the pool alone even though they are good swimmers. E and I laid out and fell asleep for a bit.
Don’t ask…



He later got in with the boys, I flipped and napped more. Then I went to get some drinks for us all. Quick stop to chat with my favorite bartender whos name I have forgotten.


Todays DOTD is a Bahama Mama for this mama


I went back and read some of my book then we moved seats as E found some empty chairs on deck 9. Perfect timing as they were having Guess the Celebrity on the Iron Man Screen. Basically they showed a body part (nothing exciting just eyes, nose, mouth etc LOL) no prizes just fun to figure out. I was pretty bad cuz I never remember peoples names. So everyone was that one guy from that one movie.

Eventually we headed to get some food on the lido deck. Boys had hamburgers, I had todays Taste of the Nations-Mediterranean it was different, I enjoyed a new flavor as its not something we have a lot of in my neck of the woods.


The boys had probably a gallon of ice cream by the time the day was over too lol.

E and I wanted to go to the Game of Love (Think Newlywed game) at 230pm, but J’s club camp carnival wasn’t open during the 2-3pm time and the Fun Times guide stated to leave the kids behind. Considering how last nights “Family” comedian was we didn’t want to chance him hearing or seeing anything inappropriate. Plus the boys were having fun so no biggie. (But I can tell you now Mickey’s getting 2 points as their clubs are open all day, and when we later caught the show on the tv which was clean enough for us LOL J could have gone but better safe then sorry. But when Disney does the game they usher the spouse off the stage and give them a free drink.. These people had to sit back to back, no drink… now I wasn’t a contestant on either ship but I just think its nice to give away free alcohol.. That’s the kind of host I would be LOL)

Instead at 3pm we went up to Js club to do a family scavenger hunt (since it was open now) it was a digital hunt and so much fun but tiring. The list was long there were things like take a pic of all 12 deck signs and everything you did you had to take the stairs, no elevators so good thing I skipped the gym cuz I got my work out alright. Um another was do the chicken dance, and get people to do a conga line. etc. we had 30mins to do it and ended up doing all but 1 thing.. and still came in last LOL. But J said its not about winning its about having fun. Not sure whos kid he is, LMAO. But we give Freddy a point cuz it was fun, we got the boys to do some stuff they normally would be shy about and we ALL got some exercise in.

Click Here to get a quick recap of our Amazing Race

After they played name that tune in the Camp Carnival Club. We named 13 out of 15 songs. E did most of it I suck at names of songs, its like name the celebrity for me, but this time it was you know that one song from that one band. Of all the songs there were only 2 or 3 that the kids all knew. Hanna Montana and Jonas Brothers etc (ha Notice DISNEY songs, point for the mouse) but it really was a lot more for adults, some P knew. But they really weren’t the 6-8yr old kid era.. heck more my moms era for some. But we all had a good time they gave all the kids a prize for participating.


Figuring we had enough sun for the day we headed back to the room showered then ordered some room service.


I set my iphone to wake us up at 630pm so we could catch the “family“ show (I never know whats family oriented or not on this ship so I use the term loosely) Nap time
#1 & 2


#3


...so anyhow at 715pm E woke up all panicked going we missed everything (which is funny cuz normally he is the calm one). Apparnelty in my rush to get a nap in I hit AM not pm... my bad (can I blame it on the Al-al-al-Alcohol?)

I was a lil bummed we missed the show but having caught some the other nights I knew I wasn’t missing out on any great broadway talent or anything. We changed then took J to his club. They didnt want to do dinner with us as they were stuffed and said it still took too long, & we were fine with that.

J’s club was having the following activities he wanted to partake in Talent Show Sing up (We figured for sure it would be his blowing a balloon with his nose El but instead said he was going to dance LOL), Running Triva (part of the ExerSeas block of fun) a dvd game, puzzle racing, and block building challenge (like Jenga)

P called up his friend and they were going to hit the arcade for a bit before their club met up at the 70s disco for a game of twister (which is next to the arcade) after that they were having a dance in the disco club. Then back to Circle C storage closet (I mentioned that place was small right) for a Personality Game, MJ wii game dance off, then finishing the night at the basketball court for Dodge ball.

E and I walked into the dinning room alone and some of our table neighbors asked where the boys were we said they ditched us to go play in the clubs. Dinner tonight was yummy. I had crepes filled with mozzarella, spinach, linguine and sausage for an appetizer.


E had ceasar salad no pic Im sure you can imagine what it looks like and steak (do you see a pattern going here) he also asked for a baked potatoe as an additional side.


I had coq de something chicken. It was yummy the agratin potatoes were tasteless though


Tonight the waiters didn’t sing, they danced and man did they get down… in fact LOW, low, low, low. Dancing on tables and everything.


Click here to see the waiters get LOW, Low, Low
I will give Freddy a point as these waiters did put on a good show and looked like they had fun and even like it was a competition(some looked like they had been “dancers” in a previous life LOL)

Dessert was vanilla ice cream for E (he’s so plain)


And Bread pudding for me. When I think bread pudding I think bread that is soggy from the sauce that has been cooked with it… not a piece of yellow cake with luke warm sauce on it… 2 bites and I was done.. E knew it must have tasted bad when I finished my cappuccino and pushed the cake away.


We killed some time and peeked in on P at his club ya we did a walk by shooting


In the main lobby they had a singer playing some nice relaxing tunes


Then we went to check out our pics from last night here are a few bootleg pics I got. This is a nice one of the boys no clue why we didn’t get it? LOL


This is at our dinning table wish they would have taken one together of all of us which we asked each night but they said no not enough room?? Whatever



This one stayed in our pile we collected all week while we debated if we wanted it or not. E really did but at $15 I said NAHHH


This is what we look like without our Mafioso glasses


We laughed when we saw this one as its so not us, we look way to prim and proper in it.


With still more time to kill, we headed over to the lounge to watch some Kareoke. A few of those people could have auditioned for the Voice (sorry Im not an Idol watcher anymore LOL)

We got some beverages cuz all that walking got us parched. A Double rum and coke for E (he said it was more like a triple with a splash of coke. Sweet more bang for your buck. Mine was something on the specials menu. I also have notes that is was rerry string (seriously that’s how it was typed on my netbook notes LMAO) I think anytime you get enough alcohol in 1 drink to make it into 2... You get some serious points. Freddy 1 from E and 1 from Me. I don’t remember Mickey being so liberal with his pouring skills.


At 10pm it was time to head up to the Serenity Deck for adult game play (*they really get creative with their names lol). I will note YES this is an 18 and over game.. Do not bring the kids & if you are easily offended don’t go. But if not, your in for a great time lots of laughs OMG it was the funniest, nastiest, raunchiest game there is lol ... so you know we had a blast!
There are no pics of this as we took an Oath prior to started that no pics would be taken and no one would talk about it on Facebook LMAO) Basically it’s a Q & A type game they had a lot of questions that had to do with animals genitals, adult type of “information“, sex, sex and more sex LOL. Best part is in order to answer you have to yell out the male sex organs name. I don’t know if people took it serious or since we were free to act like 13 year old boys but, I have never heard the P word (and I don’t mean my kids name) yelled so many times, with so many accents, and some that knew the answer and said it quietly cuz they were shy (E lol) no worries I spoke up for him! ... Basically I’ll leave it at adults full of alcohol trying to win beads, ships on a stick, and bottles of Champaign so use your imagination and go way into the gutter LOL. Freddy, I laughed so hard and E actually got into the game that I will give you a point.

When that was done we went and got J who won beads in one of his games too.. Hmm wonder what he had to yell out to answer? LOL We called it a night since we had an early day tmrw, St Thomas port. P came in around midnight. We put out the room service card for coffee bagels and cereal, then headed off to dream land.



Next Up: 1 iguana, 2iguana, 3 iguana,... watch as mom hits the floor

Tally
Mickey 3
Freddy 5

If it's free, it's for me!

We watched some tv and relaxed, before getting ready for formal night. I will say no trashcans were hurt in this process.. Unlike on our dinsey cruise (Read More About It Here!)
Come to think of it, I do recall seeing one sad looking trashcan on the Magic with a big scuffmark on the side. LOL j/k!

We wanted to hit up the family comedy show before dinner so off we went (no stiletto 5k as we had plenty of time to get there.
Amazing what spanx can do for a gal.
Sexay! You look mahvelous!

So we decided to leave , BUT being that we were in the 2nd row guess who got heckled? Dude said something along the lines of You should have left the kids in the club, they don’t usually enjoy this show or laugh. My comedy isn’t really for them., but for the parents and the kids to just be quiet. Well Im not one to just be quiet and ignore things so I snapped back… Well when Carnival labels something as a FAMILY production obviously many of us (as I point around the room) thought it would be ok for our “FAMILY”! (ya I so did the quote thing too) And for another thing if your mentioning that kids don’t enjoy or laugh in your show.. Maybe its time to change the routine.. Any “GOOD”” (just emphasized it no quotes this time LOL) comedian would to accommodate their audience. I got a couple claps and OHHHHhhss from the crowd along with that sparked most of the other families to head out also! Oh Freddy not sure who is rating your shows but you get 4 thumbs down on this one.
Holee crapoli! Good for you for having the balls to yell back at the guy! I would be mortified!



Quote:
So We let the boys pick one but they wanted to wear their glasses.. Crap I didn’t bring mine. Oh well of all the pics we took this is the best one we bought.. For $29 OUCH
Awesome! Love it!

Quote:
E & I took a nice one and look he’s sort of smiling
Aww...so sweet!



Quote:
So we started on our food, I had shirmp cocktail and stuffed mushrooms for an appy, then the surf and turf. Smallest lobster around.. Thought they made a mistake at 1st and gave me a prawn LOL
I don't know...Ron's was pretty tiny on our cruise too. And it was a bad Sarah night so he never got a second one. Meanwhile the next table over got 2 huge humungous monsters to start out with.


Quote:
Before dessert came out the wait staff put on a show, and sang that’s Amore. I think if your on the 1st level of the dinning room you get a better view all I saw was tushies, not that its a bad thing...lol. Until I got serenaded.. Must have been cuz E was gone and I looked so lonely with 2 desserts LOL
That‘s Amore Video
LMAO, that singing sounds atrocious!

Quote:
Well actually the 9-17yr old were in there.. hmm not sure I would like that if I had a 11yr old girl, dancing with a 15yr old boy LOL.
Uh, yeah...NO!


Quote:
My awesome photo skills in full effect
I notice a direct effect re: amount of alcohol relative to quality of pics. just sayin.


Quote:
Since we were alone, we went to the adult comedy club with the same comedian from earlier John Rathbone. And this time he was funny since it was all meant for us. A much DIRTIER version of the earlier “family“ show.
Did he recognize you? haha!

see....

Bummer. I actually won once, on my first time playing Bingo on a cruise. So naturally I expected to win every time. The second (and last) time I was extremely disappointed.

Quote:

Ha! There is an awesome chair hog thread on CC on the Allure board right now where a guy sat there and took pictures of chair hogs coming back to find their chairs taken or interacting with deck patrol. Funny stuff!

Quote:
There was nothing even close to the pool so we had to go up on deck 12 near the kids club/serenity adult area (ya one side is the kids club other side of the ship is the adult area.. Odd IMO)
That is strange. I assume you could hear the screams of the kiddos from the Adult area, no?

(But I can tell you now Mickey’s getting 2 points as their clubs are open all day,
Yeah this is a real pain on RCCL too. The way they are marketing the RCCL Dreamworks and their ships overall as a "family" experience - I certainly did not expect that to be a problem. They do stay open during the daytime hours, but to be in the club on certain days from 12-3ish there is a charge !!?!?!?) And the funny thing is IIRC it is sea days they charge you - not the port days. I would totally expect the opposite.

Oh wow- that DOES look fun!!!! Great video too! I can't even imagine taking the stairs from bottom to top- ugh! I remember all the adults gently scolded me for making all the "up and downs" in the Trick or Treat (lol- and I never took them below deck 3!)

Ah now THIS is right up my alley. Songs, artists, and timeframes I can do. Well..excpet for Rat Pack swing stuff and 70's AM Gold. Telling the difference between Neil Diamond and Barry Manilow is harder than you'd think!

J’s club was having the following activities he wanted to partake in Talent Show Sing up (We figured for sure it would be his blowing a balloon with his nose El but instead said he was going to dance LOL),
Aw man! He would have gotten a ship on a stick for sure if he did the balloon trick, now THAT is talent!



Quote:
Tonight the waiters didn’t sing, they danced and man did they get down… in face LOW, low, low, low. Dancing on tables and everything.


Click here to see the waiters get LOW, Low, Low
I will give Freddy a point as these waiters did put on a good show and looked like they had fun and even like it was a completion (some looked like they had been “dancers” in a previous life LOL)
Ok, usually I am not a big fan of the dining room antics. But this is pretty downright entertaining. Mr. Spielberg. Would been more entertaining if they were actually wearing Apple Bottom jeans and boots wit da fur though!


Quote:
And Bread pudding for me. When I think bread pudding I think bread that is soggy from the sauce that has been cooked with it… not a piece of yellow cake with luke warm sauce on it… 2 bites and I was done.. E knew it must have tasted bad when I finished my cappuccino and pushed the cake away.
Ya, thats just wrong. It LOOKS gross. Thumbs down on this one but I have to say most of the food overall looks pretty good!


Quote:
Then we went to check out our pics from last night here are a few bootleg pics I got.
HOW do you do it?!?!? I didn't even try on Disney (couldn't have because we always had a Shutters person around us, but I wouldn't have tried anyway I would have felt too guilty cause they were so awesome in there!. Of course you remember on RCCL I got caught and they threw away all my pictures.


Quote:
With still more time to kill, we headed over to the lounge to watch some Kareoke. A few of those people could have auditioned for the Voice (sorry Im not an Idol watcher anymore LOL)
Well that's no fun, it's the bad ones you want to hear! Haha! I will say on Disney it was only kids and that was pretty boring (unless it was your own or another disers kid!)

Quote:
Mine was something on the specials menu. I also have notes that is was rerry string (seriously that’s how it was typed on my netbook notes LMAO)
Classic Drea!


Quote:
When that was done we went and got J who won beads I one of his games too.. Hmm wonder what he had to yell out to answer? LOL
Ha!

OK...whew...finally all caught up on yours. Too bad I have a bunch more to catch up on. You know we are down to one computer again. Ron is so desperate he's ont eh internet on the wii. Oh well...HE is the one who broke it. That's right, another broken laptop. Are you counting? Is *anyone* counting how many computers we've gone through the last 2 or 3 years?!?!? We have to be nearing 20 now. (!)

Ready for more Freddy!

OHH no not another one lost. Our Desktop is so slow We took it in to be "cleaned" but its still horrible. I even moved all our pics and music to a 1tb (tara bite that right? whatever the biggest one is LOL) hard drive but its still SLOW. kills me, maybe you and I arent meant to have electronics LOL

So wait RCCL charges during the day also! So they WANT me to spend all moments with my children.. all day.. are they crazy...?

I wish they would just put all pics on a cd. Charge a flat fee and they will make out! I would buy a cd for $150-200. but maybe thats just the crazy picture freak I am!

Now off to check out that chair hog thread.

Btw how you feeling Jen?

This looks fantastic!

I'm working on DH and the kids to do another 7 night cruise on the Legend in August.

If you get a hankering to do another Carnival cruise, the Carnival Legend out of Tampa has a sweet itinerary, a nice departure port, and the crew on that ship is really sweet!

Hi Drea! We were in LA over the weekend and I thought about you! It was cold on Sunday in Anaheim, too. Really nice yesterday though!

I loved your relaxing sea day!
Looks like E picked up some desert skills with his headgear at the pool
Too bad you didn't win with the bingo. Sounds like the boys were good sports.
A nice long nap on a sea day is a must
Funny about the club having such limited hours.
Nice job on the Scavenger hunt - What was the task you missed?
Okay, that is so not bread pudding - I'm glad your meals were mostly good, though.

thanks! it is but at the same time im more scared with this then when we bought our house LOL more options and things you have to pick out and deceide on where etc.. Yes the adult game was very fun. My husband is sort of shy/prude if you will (i know what marine is like that LOL, he's weird) but he had a blast. If this was cruise critic i would have gone into more detail but since its the dis I was afraid to even put the description that I did LOL

Oh you are already 3/4 a way done if you live in Fl! do it! Yes the rooms are smaller then your average hotel room. But to be honest you really dont spend much time in them. There is so much to do and see your only in the room for short periods. The biggest ways to save room is to not overpack... ive never been able to accomplish that yet LOL really the only time we were in our room was to sleep, shower, and get ready. There are 4 of us and granted my boys are small we still had plenty of room. I say do it!! lol youll love it. weve done inside, window and now balcony. I honsestly think i couldnt do anything less then a window but if it was inside or no cruise at all.. inside is fine by me LOL

Nice job on the Scavenger hunt - What was the task you missed?Had to write Camp Carnival on your face. I didnt have any lipstick on me or a marker and the boys were NOT into anything being written on their face LOL
Okay, that is so not bread pudding - I'm glad your meals were mostly good, though.
I have to say food was hit or miss.. overall it was good.. heck i wasnt cooking anything was great LOL. but i was only wowed a few times. But that went for disney and RCCL too.. guess with any restuarnt thats the same
