Soooo.....we left Cabanas in search of- the Quiet Cove. Except...

we were lost. We needed a tour guide. So then we got him-



He was very sweet, rather than just say make a left, 2 rights, and run past the 666 deck until you find it, he said, "Let me take you there!"

We were happy to follow-





ALMOST a hidden Mickey-







He said, this is all adults, and hardly anyone ever comes up here- you will really enjoy having this deck to yourselves!

Well, ok- thanks!

I peaked in the Concierge area too-



The whole cruise we only ever saw this area used by ONE person. ONE. If it was hot on the Quiet Cove deck, you can bet it was even hotter behind the plexiglass of the concierge area.

We made good use of this shower on our sea day-



Kara was just as excited to see next year's ride!



Looking down into Vibe- my boys are going to LOVE it there!





I think on the Fantasy this is actually a water feature-



But for us, it was a relaxing place to hang out. Aaaahhhhhh......



Something was missing....I bet Drea can guess what!

click to play-




It was made by a DAZZLING and charasmatic bartender, who took his own picture for us (and we didn't even have to ask once, LOL!)



It was a yummy milkshake type of drink- reminded me of a Bushwacker. What did he call it, Kara?



We hung out for a little while longer, until it was time for Muster.

And you know what THAT means.

Newbie Initiation!! All first timers ON DECK!!!

And run past the 666 deck we did... a LOT!

ALMOST a hidden Mickey-



It started to look more and more like a hidden Mickey after a couple DOTDs!!!!

Kara was just as excited to see next year's ride!



VERY excited for this cruise next year!!!! Next year will be THREE cruises!!!

Looking down into Vibe- my boys are going to LOVE it there!



Except for Timmy.... who will be chillin with his main squeeze (although there better be NO squeezing happening!!!!)

Something was missing....I bet Drea can guess what!

Aw man, I gave it away in the video!!!!



It was made by a DAZZLING and charasmatic bartender, who took his own picture for us (and we didn't even have to ask once, LOL!)



Selami!!!! LOVED him!!! And it was called a "this is a special drink for two hot DISmoms" or at least thats what I HEARD in my own head.....




Newbie Initiation!! All first timers ON DECK!!!



Muster is very serious and we shall not mock it. At all. It's very important that people who have never cruised before are prepared. Well prepared. Even OVER prepared.....

From what I remember it was not hot on our cruise. We were there in March. The weather was really pretty good. We were a double dip at CC and the first day was absolutely perfect but the second day was really rough with winds. We didn't even think we would be able to get docked. But the captain did an excellent job and got us docked.

Looks like you are having a wonderful day so far on the cruise. Can't wait to see how dinner went.

SWEET DEAL!

Im afraid to ask

Kara was just as excited to see next year's ride!
I would be too and 3 next year.. living the dream, well just call you Robin Leach.. lifestyles of the rich and famous excuse me while I go curse your name

but then your drink would be watered down??? oh wait YOU DONT HAVE ONE

Getting caught up on all the TR's today, I really want to go on the Dream! It seems like such a beautiful ship! That Quiet cove pool area looks so pretty, i can see how it would be hot though, doesn't seem to be much in the way of shade, same with the concierge area. But they both have nice seating.

That drink looks like one that is one of my faves called a BBC. (A pina colada with Banana and Baileys) I like fruity and frozen type drinks on vacation and LOVE that drink on a cruise.

Love the "main non squeezable squeeze!"

And curse me all you like, cause I'm CRUISING!!!!

The problem with that forward adult deck is that they had this ginormous plexiglass wall built up around the front of the ship - I guess so we couldn't all do the Jack and Rose pose - but it didn't allow ANY breeze to come through. Even on sea day when we were cruising (of course, just going to the Bahamas we were cruising at like 3 knots some times, felt like we were standing still), it was hot hot hot!!!! Absolutely no air flow. Really really weird.

I'm not counting, but Ellen and I only have 528 days and 7 hours until our inlaws cruise. Wait, are you on that Fantasy cruise with us? NYE 2013????

I don't think the air temps were that hot on our cruise? Maybe upper 80's? Heck after, this summer, anything below 95 and I'm feeling a bit chilly! And our seas were like glass so there was no breeze AT ALL!

This ship is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! In a lot of ways I preferred the Magic, but there is no doubt that when Disney builds a ship, they make it beautiful and you instantly fall in love. That's why I'm so excited for the Fantasy! I'm hoping they incorporated all the good of the Dream and fixed a couple of the "issues" that we noticed..... I guess I need to head over to Germany next time and set them straight?

Dah Dah Dah Dah - I can just see it coming. I hope there's a video!

Crazy that with all the planning and experience, they would have a design on the Dream that would keep it so hot and breeze-less. It seems like the Dream would be well suited for an Alaska cruise. I wonder if the Fantasy is the same way?

I am loving your TR so far! We will be on the Dream in Feb, so I'm trying to read all I can about it. You ladies are a hoot! Thanks for the laughs! You will make the time pass a little faster.....

I am indeed on the NYE cruise for 2013-2014....It is also my 45th birthday as the ship leaves on my birthday. BUT unfortunately I am on the DREAM that sails on the 29th....there is some Debate though about changing over to the Fantasy. I will be in WDW 2 days before and 4 days after our cruise.

I will post a picture of my newest order that came in yesterday of wine...if I can figure out how.....Of course just for research.

Well, not that I really get a vote, but I say YOU'VE GOT TO SWITCH! Someone has to verify all of the crazy adventures these gals get up to ... or perhaps, someone has to commiserate with their DHs!!

And FWIW, gotta say how much I love Tokyo.
