Then she stated in with her friend on how the service on the Magic is bad and was bad on her Baltic cruise , etc. we were on the first Baltic and the service was impeccable. She was intent on making sure folks knew what cruises she had been on and that she would only cruise Disney because of her daughter. Sigh.

It does take. Lot of energy to be that miserable on such a wonderful trip!

I noticed that there were less pics from Shutters. Sometimes, we could not find them. Then, there was an instance when they overdeveloped the pics so that our hair blended with the background. I made them redo it all.

I was disappointed in this aspect of Shutters.

We thought it questionable to use a black background for semi formal photos with formally dressed Mickey and Donald.

Yes, we were a bit disappointed, as we purchased the Shutters CD and would have liked more photos of the excusions.

I did see some other families with excursion photos, but not a lot. I wonder if they were on the family excursions - we tried to book mostly "adult only" ones.

So, if you're on an upcoming cruise, check the list in the navigator you get at the port and reserve first thing. I'd love to hear about the chocolate tasting if anyone did it. We just bought chocolate in port where we could find it and sampled along the way.
You were the Family of the Day? How cool! We saw you (and were green with envy) get on. How did you get this?
This was our first experience with the tastings, and DH really enjoyed them. I can't drink that much - I get the "Asian flush". I didn't know you could sign up for them all at the beginning of the cruise, and by the time we got to them, some were already filled. Oh well, we will be better prepared next time!

Oh, and if nasty old lady was a Platinum, wouldn't she know about the wait list?

Thanks so much to all of you for posting so much useful information for those of you on the next Greece/Turkey cruise!

Can one of you who are Gold/Platinum tell me when the Castaway Club reception was?

Many thanks again!

Thanks so much! I was hoping it wouldn't interfere with the Palo brunch date I booked, and if it stays the same, it won't.

I've got all the navigators scanned and put in my TR if that might be helpful...... Look at my signature for the link.

The gold/platinum party wasn't in the navigators. It's by invitation.

It was the same for the Venice cruise... First sea day at 11:00. So that seems to be their pattern. Also if you want mickey rice Krispy treats, you have to stay until the end.

Ours was also very crowded so seats were at a premium.

How did I miss the cranky platinum woman? Still settling in at home - our missing piece of luggage arrived the following day and our new refrigerator (yes, that went while we were gone) arrived two days after we returned. We have a saint of a neighbor who discovered the fridge when she was taking care of our dogs and she cleaned it all out for us.... Hope all of you are doing well!

So glad you got your luggage! It is so annoying to have that happen, isn't it? At least it was on the way back, instead of going over - that would have been worse!

Sorry about the refrigerator, too. Once, when I was a kid, we went on vacation and our refrigerator died. Coming home to the smell of rotting meat from the freezer was horrible.
