Not sure how to post the navigators, but I can answer questions about what's on them if you like.

The shows were... Aladdin, Wishes, Believe, Fantasy come true, Buckets and Boards, A unforgettable Journey and also showed Wreck it Ralph in the Walt Disney Theatre one evening instead of the Buena Vista Theatre.

They also had Comedy and Music of John Charles ( REALLY GREAT!!!), Comedy of Steve Carte, Comedy and Magic of Jason Bishop and a Guest DJ Streak.

The Pirate show was on Wed evening. Formal night was Sunday, semi formal was on Thursday night.

The movies being played onboard were Wreck it Ralph, Frankenweenie, Finding Nemo, Lincoln, Chimpanzee, People Like Us, The Advengers, Brave, and the Odd Life of Timothy Green.

Is there anything else you would like to know?

No Christmas decorations were up, but I did notice they were starting to bring things out as we were disembarking on Saturday.

We (girls and I) had an early excursion booked with Dolphin Discovery in Cozumel that was cancelled due to the choppy water and downpour that happened that morning. We just stayed on the ship and watched movies and the girls swam as the weather improved. DH and DS went on their X-rail excursion to Jade Caverns as scheduled. Came back covered head to toe in mud.

Funny you should ask this question. I have sailed the cruise line in mid November before and they had always started decorating the ships by the 12 of November. Just as we were getting off the ship on Saturday, I went to the restroom and on the way out, they had multiple carts in the atrium that were filled with Poinsetta's. They had just started placing them in the atrium of the ship! So, to answer your question.... YES the ship is now being decorated for the holidays and I spoke to the cast members on the ship earlier last week and they said the ship would have all decorations up by Thanksgiving day.

I was on the fantasy the week prior(eastern) and don't recall any broken windows in Cabana's.

The netting at CC was broken and we had some fish and even a stingray swimming by. Not sure if they got that fixed or not ???

The broken windows are in the back of Cabanas. The first time we noticed them was when we walked all the way through from one entrance to the other.

What excursions were cancelled?
We just got off Saturday too. Actually this was one of our smoothest cruises ever wave wise, nothing that we would consider rough by any means. I too wonder which excursions were cancelled at Castaway because when we got off the sign said all excursions were running.

Yep, there was still 2 large panes of glass that are shattered. They were in the area near a door way that came out of Cabanas. You had to walk about half way around until you reached that area. I only noticed it because we sat right next to it.

The netting at CC was broken and we had some fish and even a stingray swimming by. Not sure if they got that fixed or not ???
My daughter did the stingrays and I never noticed any of the rays swimming outside the netted off area, so they may have already fixed that.

There was one over by the monkey bar landing thing on the family beach(i am sure it has a name, lol). Thankfully I was the only one in the water as the dozen of kids on the monkey bar platform were all going crazy, lol.... and I just stayed nice and calm. He hung out there for awhile, I was able to get up on the platform and get a good picture of him.

The seahorse snorkel was cancelled at Castaway Cay. When I asked about it, I was told that Sandy destroyed the reef, so that excursion was not going to be available for a while. We just snorkeled in the lagoon for about 2.5 to 3 hours and had a blast. FYI, the water was just great, but then again I am from Utah and it snowed while we were gone.

We also had the Fury Catamaran scheduled in Cozumel, it was cancelled due to the rainstorm and waves.

It was one of those things where if you might think it was supposed to be that way if you weren't specifically looking for it. The glass is sandwiched, so it shatters with impact, but the pieces stay together instead of falling all over the place. What you end up with is kind of like a mosaic pattern throughout the pane, which is kind of pretty from a distance. We also noticed one of the windows in the very back of Meridian behind the bar was broken in this way. It wasn't visible unless you were outside on deck.

DH talked with some people who had been assigned a different stateroom at check in due to storm damage in the room they were originally assigned to. Other than that, the ship looked amazing.
