I absolutely love that picture of Remy looking into Paris. I have an obsession with scenes from Ratatouille! I took a picture of this on the Dream



Did you happen to get any pictures of the adult area on the ship? I know it's supposed to be a little different than the Dream because of all the complaints about it being too small.

I'm glad you kept your massage appointment! Can't wait to hear about that!

If you have a look at the fourth photo in post 113 (the photo of the door) you can see the new DVC magnet peeking out.

Yes, they are both on the Wonder. The Magic also has Parrot Cay, but the buffet on deck 9 is called Topsiders on the Magic. Apart from the themeing and the name they are identical though.

I am not sure if the build your own station is open for the embarkation lunch, but it is definitely operational during any other lunch. The servers that give out the trays usually tell people what that day's offering is.

The only thing about the new magnets is that they don't have a year on them. I really liked having the year on the other magnets as a reminder when I got it. Oh well.

I really loved all the carpets. I need to go back to my pictures of the Dream, I can't remember what those carpets were like.

I was in two minds about the massage because of the price, but in the end I'm so glad I did it.

Great minds think alike!

How did you like the Dream? That was the first ship we went on and loved it, caused us to fall in love with cruising.

Most of the verandahs are much smaller. That room was a category 5E which is only on the Dream/Fantasy. On the Magic/Wonder the 6A category has the oversized verandahs.

Yes, BBB is open every day for breakfast and lunch but there are certain hours. The daily navigator you get the night before will have the hours for the next day. I hope that makes sense. You can also go there for dinner if you want to skip the main dining rooms.

The spa raffle gave out money prizes that you could use for any spa treatment. They gave out several different ones. To enter you need to do a spa tour on the first day or book a treatment. And you have to be there to win. It was really fun.

I loved those carpets the Fantasy was so beautiful.

Did I get any pictures? Of course I did! The pool area is the same but there is also a wading pool at the front of the ship with tons of lounge chairs, its a beautiful and much needed area.

I love that picture, where was it on the Dream? I really enjoy all the artwork they have around the ships.

Figured you did Can't wait to see those. Our next cruise, whenever that will be, DH demands it to be on the Fantasy. He wasn't a fan of the pool on the Dream but loved the Wonder pool so just curious as to see how much different it is.

It was in one of the stairways that we always took. Then by the 3rd day, I needed to have a picture of it.

So funny to see the pictures of the carpets. My husband thought I was nuts. If I wasn't shooting the carpet, I was shooting the gorgeous blown glass chandeliers in the ceilings! The one at the entrance to Palo is this beautiful amber colour.

The actual pool area is exactly the same as on the Dream which was a bit of a disappointment. They have an extra adults only area on Deck 13 which is very nice. I havnt uploaded those pictures yet. I'll try to remember when I'm at home. Mom has decided the Fantasy is her favorite because they fixed all the flaws from the Dream. It really is an awesome ship.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one! I tried and tried to get a good picture of the chandelier in Palo but it just didn't capture how gorgeous it was.

Cool. I think they are so cute.

I hope we like it. Thank goodness Denny got his stent in Hilton Head so we shouldn't have to worry about that.

Glad that you got your spa appt changed. I just emailed my TA to tell her to note that we are DVC members.

I left off with us heading to the Lifeboat Drill. We needed to make our way Aft/Portside on the Promenade Deck. Of course I continued to take photos the entire time.

We had enough time to revel in the beauty of the Atrium





The most beautiful of all the carpets on the ship





The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at the very top



Mom needed a bathroom break and insisted I come in and take some photos.







The DVC desk



The Atrium is so pretty



Shutters







We never went in to figure how to use this place, it looked cool though.

I must have looked back at the hallway, I thought it was pretty cool



Heading Aft towards the bar area Europa













This is Ooh La La



I thought these chairs were wild



There was this little ‘courtyard’ in between La Piazza and Ooh La La





A very funky but cool bathroom area



We finally made it outside and found our station. The Lifeboat Drill was painless enough and they even had one open we could check out. I was fascinated and thought it was neat they let us look inside.

It appears as if you two are the only ones on the ship! How did you manage to get all those photos without anyone else in them?
