Dinner looks good and I'm sorry you were feeling sick again.

Could you choose your dressing on the romaine salad? Your moms entree looks fantastic. I love portobello.

I think I'd fall asleep during a movie after dinner. I've got an old soul.

Dinner was great and I'm so glad I felt well enough to go. Thankfully I brought Dramamine so I didn't have to go down to the health center this time. I think I took it almost every day the ship was rocking so much.

Oh yes, they are happy to change the dressing on salads, I did that several times. She got that dish on the Dream as well, loved it both times.

Oh I was nodding off during the movie but we managed to finish it

Wow the atrium is beautiful! I think it's way nicer than the Dream. Looks like there's more room too

The RFR looks so relaxing. Something I can hope to do one day. I think it would be better if I had someone to do it with though. Dan isn't one that likes to do this type of stuff (besides the very occasional massage). Perhaps if I brought a book or something.

Oh man, hopefully the waters were only choppy that one night. It's terrible feeling sick and there's literally nothing you can do about it. The food looks amazing though!

I LOVE all the Earth Day movies made by Disney Nature. I haven't seen Chimpanzees yet, and maybe I shouldn't if you said it's sad.

After reading about your RFR experiences last night, I had a dream (nightmare!) that I was on the cruise ship and went to bed right away and missed the whole first day...forgot to buy my RFR passes! I was cracking up this morning.

The atrium and ship pictures are gorgeous! I will be back to read more. Fran finally woke up so we are going to our Port excursion. I can't wait to see more pictures.

I think we're changing to late seating and I started a thread to find out what after dinner activities there are. I'll add movies to the list though I doubt I could stay way. DH says I'll make the best little old lady ever as I'm half way there. I can't wait to EAT on the cruise.

I've never been seasick but I'm definitely going to bring something along just in case.

As much as I loved the Dream I have to admit I found the Fantasy even more beautiful. I liked the colors better and everything seemed more whimsical to me.

The RFR has quickly become a favorite of ours, it's just so relaxing. You definitely should try it sometime. You can buy a one day pass and just try it out to see if you like it.

Sadly it wasn't just that night. It was a very rocky cruise. I found out after getting home that there was a problem with the stabilizers. Thankfully taking 1 Dramamine took the seasickness away. I'll definitely bring it on every cruise now just in case.

It's worth seeing and has a very touching ending. I think it's amazing how animals work together and that film captured a beautiful story.

stabilizers make all the difference, I was on a ship once, that was having engine problems, so they did not sue the stabilizers and it very rocky!

And you WILL eat! There's so many delicious things to try just pace yourself or you won't get hungry for a while. Mom made that mistake out first cruise and was so full by the third day she was uncomfortable. She has since learned to take smaller portions since you can always get more if you want.

It's best to bring something just in case. Hopefully our cruise will be very smooth and you won't need it.

I just wanted to mention, either dinner seating you do there will probably be things you'll miss that you would have liked to do. There's just so many activities going on all the time it's impossible to do them all.

It was amazing how rocky it was. The curtains in the theater were going back and forth very drastically during the shows.

A problem with the stabilizers?
I sure hope they've got those fixed before we set sail! Thanks for the heads up, I've packed something for seasickness already, but I sure hope we don't need it.
