As for the Zebra Domes - I did not have any last year, so since they changed the recipe maybe the coffee taste is gone. Need to get me some in August.
I guess the only way to know if is I actually try one and see.

I ended up waking up earlier than I planned this morning, so I might try to get something small in if I can.

Yay! These trip reports keep me amused on the treadmill.
Five weeks from today I will be jumping on my kids beds to wake them before dawn and drive down to port!!!

After the fiasco with the overloaded elevator, Lisa and I cautiously got on the next one that came. All was fine. We didnít set off any alarms this time.

We headed up to deck 9 and got our first glimpse of the outdoor area.
I have to admitÖ.I only took a few pictures for nowÖbut have many more later.







And we headed into the Vista Spa and found the rest of our gang there too.



It is really a beautiful spa. I was impressed. It wasnít as beautiful as the Dreams, but darn close.









We all signed up for the drawing that was gonna take place at 3 PM. They were going to give away several different things and though I am not really a spa kind of galÖ.I would take anything for free. LOL



We proceeded to walk down the hallway to take a look and get some pictures.





The rooms all looked so nice.





Another complaint. Ö. This hot tub was not very pretty. This is Disney and they need to put some kind of nice covering around the sides of it. This looked kind of disgusting and falling apart. I surely didnít expect to see that.

Is this a surprise for them? I have often thought of surprising Claire, but I know I never could. We talk too much about Disney and I would slip up.
I have kept the fact that we are staying at AKL in Nov. for 1 night from her...but actually I have siad it right in front of her on accident, but she didn't catch it. She does keep asking me where we are staying the first night...and I stil ltell her it's a surprise. I think she thinks we are staying at Pop.

I agree with you about the hot tub. We had a treatment in one of the spa villas on the Wonder last year and the hot tub there was in a much better state. We usually live in the spa and always get a length of cruise pass for the Rainforest Room.

I don't even get why they didn't just get a can pf paint and make it look slightly better.

Some of my firends did do the rainforest room and really enjoyed it.

I am leaving in about 45 minutes for the day. Hopefully tomorrow I can get 2 updates up. I have sooo many pictures from just this boarding day. My goal is to get this day done before I leave...but with so many pictures...it's really a taunting task.

Not a surprise. But they're young enough it'll be a thrilling morning anyhow. And they've never done anything Disney before.

The spa looked great! I will have to agree with you about the Hot Tub. They should have that looking better!

Yep... I am super excitind knowing about all the plans...probably even more so. You'll have a blast. And become addicted very fast. Claire thnks she is a DCL pro now...after sailing once. She can hardly stand waiting for our next cruise.

At the end of the hallway, all the way to the front of the ship is the gym.







One of the instructors asked if we would like a picture together.

We all made our strong look and posed.



Shelly is not in that picture…not sure where she had roamed off to at the moment.



The instructor was from Austria. I couldn’t help but think of the Saturday Night Live skit with Hans and Frans. This guy sounded just like them and he was ready to “pump you up”!

Some of the gals looked at a few classes, like detoxing, etc. I skimmed it, but I didn’t want to comment just yet to anything. I wanted to think over exactly what I wanted to do and I didn’t want to sign up and then not show up.

While he talked, I took some pictures out the front window of the ship.

This is the crew pool….which was almost never used. Even our waiter made a comment one night that no one ever uses it as they just don’t have much time to. On a side note…one afternoon Lisa was watching the camera on TV that shows the front of the ship. She was all excited to see a couple of people out on that deck. It was kind of twilight out and the camera doesn’t capture it great, but I swear there was a girl and 2 guys…and though I am sure this “wasn’t” going on…it almost looked like there was some sort of standing threesome going on. Lisa was cracking up so much. She kept saying to me…”look now…..what do you think that looks like?”











Back to taking pictures of the gym and spa.





I am not sure how this works? On the Dream they have water coolers with fresh lemons in the water. Here there is a drinking fountain with lemons next to it. LOL! Do you filter your water with a lemon slice as you drink it?





Back to the spa.







If you ever finding yourself needing a razor…come here…they have tons you can use.







You can even shower here too.



Or if the sauna is your type of thing…go for it!
