We are going to Canada on an August cruise. I am so excited and so curious to hear the rest of your report. I read this to my DH and now he is flipping out because he wants to hear the rest - lol.

I sure hope you say it was absolutely amazing!

Yay first time cruisers! We were so amazed by the ship and took lots of photos so I hope you won't be disappointed. I will also try and show/tell details that I wasn't sure about when we went. Hope I can answer some questions!!

Okay, let's finish this day up!

I forgot to post these in the earlier posts...here was our Navigator for the day.





There were two other ships at the terminal that left before us, so we hung around for about 30 minutes before we sailed off. It was so awesome to finally be moving and see NYC fly by...I believe my exact words were, "Goodbye NY! Goodbye Work! Glad I don't have to see you for a while!"

So I made it 'til we got about halfway down the island and then I headed in to start getting ready for dinner...like a few of you guessed, we had Palo tonight! EEK!

DH stayed out for a while though, so here is what he saw:




A bunch of cast members enjoying the sights!




After this, DH decided to come down and get ready. We had an 8pm reservation but we wanted to get ready before going to the show.




The first show, 'All Aboard', was super cute. We really enjoyed it. It was a very good way to start the cruise! We also saw a preview of the magic act. We knew right then that we would not be going to that particular show. Maybe some little kids enjoyed it?

After the show we walked around a little bit. We stopped in the shop to look at souvenirs. We didn't get anything just then, because we didn't want to bring it to Palo.

So after we walked around, we headed up to Palo. There was no wait, but just as we were about to be shown to our table the phone rang...and it was the captain! He was ordering dinner....we thought it was fun that we got to hear him order!

Then we were seated. The restaurant was only about half full, which surprised me..I'm not sure how full it gets...or if they purposely don't fill it.

Our waitress was very nice and she asked if their was any dietary needs. I told her I was a vegetarian and allergic to mushrooms. So when she brought the antipasti she left out the meat...(sorry DH!)
Antipasto Freddo - Prosciutto, Bresaola, Parmesan Reggiano, Marinated Olives and Sun-dried Tomatoes

This was so good! Especially the cheese.

We both got a Bellini.


DH looking all smart!

Mozzarella and Plum Tomatoes with Balsamic Dressing

This was my appetizer. It was really nice and light. The sauce was the best.

Sicilian Pesto Marinated Grilled Shrimp Salad
Served on a Mussel, Crab and Cherry Tomato Ragu

This was DH's appetizer. He thought this was amazing...especially because he doesn't normally get shrimp!

We were then given lemon sorbet as a palate cleanser.

mmmm...lemon anything is good by me.

Gnocchi di patate con Gorgonzola e Asparagi
Potato Gnocchi served with Gorgonzola Sauce with Asparagus

This was my main...
Gorgonzola cheese=fave
Gnocchi=fave
Main=amazing
YUM!

Beef Tenderloin "Palo"
Served with Palo Signature Barola Red Wine Sauce or Gorgonzola Sauce

Again...awesome. DH knew that the beef would be best in Palo and he was not disappointed!!

Around this time, a photographer came around and took our photo. We really liked it, so we bought this one too!

So...being a DISer...and reading the boards...I knew right away what dessert I was having. DH followed and didn't even look at the menu! (This is unheard of.)

Chocolate Soufflé
With Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Sauce

Seriously there are no words. It is the richest, creamiest dessert ever.

But...we were also given this...



It was so nice of them! Up until they gave us this I didn't know if our anniversary was on our reservation. but it definitely was!

After a very relaxing (and filling!!) dinner, we dragged ourselves out and walked around the now very quiet ship. I guess most people go to sleep early on the first night? Very quiet.

Because it was so quiet, I had time to see my favorite mouse.




We went back to the shops...and I bought this sweatshirt I had eyed the second we walked past earlier in the day. Then we headed up to the Buena Vista Theatre to see Chimpanzee!

We had wanted to see this for a long time and were so happy when we saw it on the list of movies being shown! That sweatshirt came in handy because it was freezing. so I was so grateful to have it.

After the movie - which we loved btw - was over, we headed back to our room to get a good night's sleep for our first full day!

I forgot to mention earlier that we were involved in a Fish Extender exchange. This was our door on day one!

Already it was starting to fill up. We only bought along our name plates and the extender.

We were greeted with sexy Duffy


I decided to walk around and give out my gifts...I was still wide awake! So I roamed the eerie halls to deliver my presents. It's really weird to not see anyone in the halls!! Especially on decks 1 and 2 where you can hear the engine.

When I got back to the room I believe I tried to watch part of a movie, but was quickly out cold.

Coming up
