We stopped to meet our new friend Selami.... and all I could thing was "salami...salami...bologna...." I have no idea where that came from but it's stuck in my head even now!

Still don't know what the drink was called, but it tasted like a java milkshake.....





Oh Miss Ellen please take me to see my ride for next year!!!!

And...... don't ya wish your girlfriend was HOT like me.... cause it was like 115 that day!!!!!



And that will be a cruise with the INLAWS so stay tuned for a fun filled trip report!!!!

Back to our girls for.....





Is it just me or can none of these poor cruise directors in training DANCE?? And how is it possible to work on a cruise ship and be so pale???? These are the thoughts that go through my head on a daily basis.... It's tough being me.

"Hey look, it's the DISMOMSSSSSSSSS!"



Now we got some dancers.... nothin like a dancing squirrel, er chipmunk....







Sailaway party was much different than on the Magic - it was like 4 or 5 different little vignettes, one for the big cheese and Minnie, one for Goofy, one for Daisy, one for Donald, and one for the squirrels. Kinda weird actually...... And speaking of weird, this ship is sooooo large and smoooooooth that we were already off the dock and halfway to the Bahamas before we realized we were moving!!!

OK, maybe not THAT far, but we were practically making the turn for open water before we knew it..... Maybe sailaway started early?

And it was time for the DISmoms to get our shuffle on to wave to the Fishlips camera for Drea to see!!!!!



Thank you for posting those shots Drea!!!! I have them somewhere but can't find them!!!!!

As soon as sailaway was finished we decided to head back to our cabin to get cleaned up (DISmoms were a bit shiny by now..... ) and continue to explore this big beautiful ship. 4 women getting ready in one cabin?

Forget about it......... Actually, no problems at all. We were ready to go in no time!!!!

On the way back to our cabin.....

The atrium lobby chandelier



Absolutely breathtaking!!!!

Looking down.....



Let's check out the District, the Dream's adults only entertainment area (after 9pm.... during the day they have lots of family activities here!).....



Someone just found Nirvana.....



We were in Pink, the champagne bar and the most girliest place EVAH!!!! We loved it here!!!!



Don't worry, there will be LOTS more of Pink to come!

Time to dress for dinner! Uh, no, you can't come with us for this. We'll be back AFTER we get dressed. Shut the door now....

"Shut the door", isn't that the name of a game that was played by fisherman back in 18th century? Oh, wait, I think it may have been called "Shut the Box". Maybe there is a song or something called Shut the Door - or take your hat off or something. I am rambling.....

What a great sailaway party you had. Looks like wonderful weather for the day. And you guys are so ornery! Poor Joan and Cammie and their life vests. But it was a good laugh!

Loved the song Kara! My only problem would be my DH wouldn't let me go on a cruise without him. No way. He loves to cruise so. . . . . . I will just live my no DH trip through you guys. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Keep up the great job!

DREA!! Thank-you SOOOOO MUCH for posting all of that!! I kind of thought we were waving and dancing constantly- I guess we were WAAAAAY off on where that Fish Lips camera was! Kara and I did the curly- I mean, cupid- shuffle until our feet bled, I think.... Although, Kara & I were doin the curly shuffle the rest of the trip, so...... Anywho.....

As Kara Jean said, we went inside after sailaway-



Wow, was that chandelier magnificent!! Mickey was busy welcoming everyone onboard-



Wasn't he just sucking face with someone else a little while ago? That mouse sure gets around....



And we had to visit the District-







Kara is 1000% correct- this bar, Pink, was the girliest bar I have EVER seen! The complete opposite of a sports bar. We LOVED it here. And it's true, I was in Nirvana sitting in that champagne alcove. We also saw 687-



Really, though, we were in search of some shopping- the last two cruises I have missed out on getting the little ship charm for my bracelet- and we were not about to let THAT happen again. We passed Preludes...



right outside of the WD Theatre, and Joanie was happy to see all the Tinks!

Sizeable damage was done in the shops- all of us made purchases, I believe they had 35% or so off D&B bags- so I got a new wristlet (a Dream one in white), the ship bead, a ship bead for lonnie (who apparently is NOT afraid of a charm bracelet), a sparkly bead for myself (yea, I got 2!!).....it was a very satisfying shopping experience!



We went up to the cabin and got ready for the Welcome Aboard Show (or do I have it backwards, and we got ready after? Hard to recall....) It was the Golden Mickeys, and I was excited to see it for the first time, having missed it on previous cruises-





The theatre was beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!





A good show, but not the BEST show of DCL...

Then it was back to the stateroom, to finish getting ready (I guess) and open a little something we were all DYING to try, that I had purchased the day before in France-



WOW!!!!!! That stuff is DA BOMB!!!! I think Nuvo is going to have to be a cabin staple from now on!

Drinks in hand, we sauntered off to our first dinner- at Animator's Palate. Gee....I sure do hope we can see Crush from where we're sitting....

NEXT!!!

That's a great idea! Maybe I will start doing that. For some reason anytime I start the morning off with sangria, it means an early night for me.... no matter how many times I've practiced!

Great updates! Good to know that you're staying hydrated Kara! Now can I guess that dinner will start off with some yummy bread to absorb all the goodness and keep you going strong for the evening!

I love that Drea's pics we can actually find you! Too cool! Also, Fishlips is a pretty decent place to grab a meal after a long day at the beach.

And here's another great update!
I am glad you enjoyed all my favourite places on the DREAM - Pink, 687 .... did I miss Skyline or haven't you made it there yet?

Love the pink drink from France!

Now, I wonder if crush will have the time to stop by your table. He sure did take the time to talk to Tom!

Sangria for breakfast is FINE! I mean, it's fruit! How can fruit be bad???

We plan to eat at Fishlips next year the night before our Freedom of the Seas cruise, and we can watch the Fantasy sailaway!

Skyline? Hmmm, I vaguely remember it..... Let me just say by the end of this TR you will think our stateroom number was SKYLINE!!!! And Crush? Talk to US? Why would he do that????

I stopped on my way home tonight to pick up some wine and was looking at that Nuvo. Is it something you drink straight or mix with something? It definitely sounded interesting.
