Adult pool area..

Was crowded on sea days. It's just too small of an area and as I stated before, the forward elevator dumps out there so people are always walking through. Poorly designed, if you ask me.

That said, on the next deck up where the Dream has a sun deck, there is now a little sitting pool, but it is not adults only. Up one deck from there to the bow of the ship where the satellite domes are is another area, Satellite Falls, it is adults only and no kids actually came through there. No excuses for them to. the big satellite has the water coming out of it in a curtain and there is a place to sit behind the water on a bench. however, the water does not drip while we are at sea and it closes at 6PM I think because they can't light it, it would interfere with the sailing of the ship. There is a wide area that is shaded and many chairs are available there, both in the shade and in the sun. it is right around the corner from the bar and lots of bar servers are wandering the deck. It was the quiet relaxing area to be in.

That's about it, we did not get off the ship in Castaway Cay, it was chilly (low 70s after days in the 90s, we've also been there 8 times before, so we enjoyed the pool practically to ourselves until after lunch. Another reason, it has rained EVERY TIME we have gone to CC....but I"m happy to say, this trip it did not, so our curse has been broken!

OK, that's it in a nutshell, if I've missed anything you wanted to know about, ask away!!!

I wish I were out there now.....

Welcome back......

Thanks for the report.
OK question, is the set appetizer,soup and dessert only at AP at your second rotation or is this thru all the dining rooms every nite? I have read complaints about the food, I think Disney needs to be aware and step it up, since they charge more for their cruises.

But it sounds like you had a great time. I still cant wait to get on the ship and see her in person. Our stateroom is mid-ship, so I guess I better bring a GPS with me so I wont get lost...

Well I have tons of things to get done around here so better get off this computer and get them done.

Ok, I really need to be young again.....I think I overdid today.

Cleaned the kitchen really good, the batheroom, bedroom, then inbetween, I have been doing laundry...went and mowed the lawn and put away all the last minute yard stuff. I am exhaused and my back and knees are bothering me.....Oh to be 30 something again.....

going to chill for awhile then I have to start dinner....

Just regular stuff like corn, peas, beans, tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, passionfruit, herbs. Only problem with lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and some of the herbs etc is that it bolts with the heat so I don't really worry about it now unless it's something I really can't do without. I'm still only learning this vegetable garden thingy so so far it's all been experimentation. Asian vegetables do well here but I'm not overly fussed on many of them.

No, it is only your AP rotation where you do the drawing for the animation part. I think it's to speed up service so it doesn't make dinner drag out too long.

I agree, I wasn't as happy with the food as we have been in the past. All the potatoes were piped out into a dome and baked and were hard and dried out, NASTY! The only potatoes I ate on the ship were the ones in Cabanas which were just mashed....

oh and french fries,

Welcome back, glad you had a great trip. We had the same opinions about the food on the Dream last year. And sad to hear they made no improvements to the adult pool area. We will still have a great cruise anyway.

Yes we will! We fully enjoyed our cruise! I was still sad to get off the ship...you probably can still see my claw marks as they dragged me off!

Good times!
I was really sad to when I heard the news, my dad passed away 2-25-12..the nite of the wake, (one of the girls going to see them with) brother came in and he was the one that told my that Davy had passed that day....I was really upset.
When we saw them last year they were so good and Davy and Mickey were all over the stage...so will see how Mike fills in. It should be fun, we always have a good time when we get together, so either way it will be fun. I will try and post pictures from their show last year, tonite when I get home.

I think the food on many cruise lines isn't as good as it once was. Once they added the upcharge restaurants things started disappearing from the dining room!
