I am SO going to be looking out from the deck as we sail away, camera at the ready! What an amazing amount of sealife! That would have made my day right there, no doubt.

I remember those panini's being quite tasty on the Wonder. Jeff's big gripe was that it was only half a sandwich but I think he just got robbed once as the next time, mine was plenty big!

Your sail away sounds lovely. So glad you got to see some many ocean critters. I was kayaking near dolphins in HHI and one actually went right up to one of the kayaks and was coming out of the water. So cool!

Your snacks look yummy! I could go for a piece of that pizza right now. Yum!

Great pictures of the aqua duck!

I would be just like you, Lisa---standing and watching all the dolphins, stingrays, and manatees. All that is just amazing to me.

Lunch/snack looks good and tasty.

Please update tomorrow!!! I don't think I can wait to hear how the title of this report came to be!

dolphins are THE BEST!!! They are so amazing and i would have stood there watching them in awe too. Every time I'm near them I'm just moved.

The aqua duck looks SOOOO cool!!! I wanna check that thing out and WOW, Hunter made friends SO fast!!! i think my dd14 would be SO afraid to head off and hang out with strangers but I'm sure she would make a few friends and then totally want to ditch us and hang out with other teens the whole time. It would be good for her. Wish we had gone ahead with our plans to do a cruise last trip. Oh well - maybe some day.

oh and that pannini looks SO good and now I'm going to have to put that on my menu for this week. I'm just craving it so bad now.

Sounds like a perfect way to begin the cruise! I would have stood there watching all afternoon.

That pannini looks so good! I'm glad that you enjoyed the food more from the counter service area.

Looks like Hunter was having a great time too!

I'm really interested to see what got you in hot water with security!

Wow- that is fantastic that you saw dolphins, sea turtles and manatees. Don't you just love the clear southern waters??? Great start to your trip!

I just hope you don't have to spend the rest of the cruise in the brig!!!

I'm a MD girl transplanted to PA and we do our shrimp with Old Bay seasoning and cayenne pepper. And I would never serve my shrimp with the vein still intact! It shocks me here in PA when we are served unseasoned shrimp with the veins in a restaurant. Blech! Our local grocery store will steam shrimp for us also (vein removed) to our specs. One of their options is Cajun so we might just have to try that some time. I assume that would be close to how you season your shrimp.

That's so cool about seeing all the sea animals. I love manatees that would have been so exciting to me.

The food looks good! I do have a question if you don't mind, are sodas and juice including in the cruise price? I thought I read somewhere that drinks weren't but I could be wrong.

Can't wait for the next installment!

Definitely find you a place along the railings to watch for the sea creatures. It was amazing to see them all.

We realized after a time or two that we could ask for more than one item and they'd give it to you. If you didn't ask, they would only give you one slice/piece/bowl/plate.

The dolphins were so amazing! It makes me want to work in a trip to Sea World next May.

The fast food windows had some really good food.

I couldn't take my eyes off the water because I was searching for the next animal to come to the surface. It was awesome!

Seeing the dolphins was one of the best parts!

Hunter can make friends in the blink of an eye. You'll find out more about that a few updates later.

I could go for a pannini myself!

John and I stood there waaaaay longer than the other guests. There were a few that we saw looking out to sea but everybody else had gone to do other things.

It was definitely one of the highlight moments of the trip.

Hunter had a great time! We would often have to go look for him because he was off doing other things.

The sodas and juice were included in the price of the meal as were coffee and hot chocolate. Oh and free ice cream!

Hunter was ready to meet up with some new buds and it didn't take him long either.
