I'm jealous. Sounds fabulous.

Oops! Thanks for pointing that out. I thought we had done one on the Fantasy in June. But apparently, I've mixed up my cruises. I've edited my list above.

What should we expect to be open (on the Dream) when we get back on the ship? I've seen that the Aqua Duck would likely be closed for a while, but would the pools be open? What about the fitness center? Sports deck? Maybe most importantly, when do the bars reopen?

You wouldn't happen to be Van Halen fans would you?

We boarded the Fantasy with group 2 in September and we were ready to go on the aqua duck but it didnt open for another hour. We even wore our swim stuff as we planned on racing to the top. The pools and things opened after 1 on our cruise

We did a b2b on the Dream last Nov. We didn't look into fitness center, bars or sports deck so I can't answer that. The pools were open with just a small handful of guests, maybe 5. That was just heavenly on a hot, sunny day. Possibly a movie played on the big screen. I can't recall exactly.
The Aquaduck opened at noon. Since newly boarding passengers were walking on with that dazed look of wonder, pulling carry-on luggage, we were in our bathing suits and ready to slide at noon. We had some lunch and I finished some laundry. The time flew by so quickly it really wasn't difficult at all.

When we 1st reboarded, they were putting up Christmas decorations so we watched them for a little. It was amazing how much they had gotten done in the hour or so we were off the ship, especially considering it was the Dream's 1st Christmas. I wish they'd come do my house!
They were in the midst of building the gingerbread house during the 1st leg of the b2b so it was nice to see it completed by the end of the 2nd leg.

It was neat to do once but it would have to be a massive $$ saver to do that again. We all prefer the vibe of a 7 nt. It just feels different.
