What a shame that the weather was not quite up to scratch. I love the purple dress.

I've never looked for them in the parks, I'm sure someone on here would know, but there are 4 cruise beads, here's a pic I found on-line



Thank you, glad you're liking all the pics

The chamilla beads are quite new I think if I remember rightly they came out in the last year because it was after our cruise and I think they are DCL exclusive.

Very chilled out day and lovely dress.

Ooh, I nearly missed this one and I love your TRs

Firstly, your nails look fab!

We are staying at AoA for a couple of nights in December, just to check out the resort - the Cars section looks amazing!

Lucky you, back to back on the Fantasy, I can't wait to get back on that ship

Hope you checked out Ooh La La

The charms are beautiful, and I love the one that you picked. So sad that you didn't find the real Leo but I know that you LOVED finding your Bahama Mama bartender.

I finally got started on my trip report too, although it's probably going to take me a while as I need to organize photos still etc.

Monday 22nd April

I woke just after 8am, and checked the 'bridge view' on the TV and I could see glorious sunshine, so we got ready and by 9 we were heading up to deck 12, with just a quick stop at the Cove Cafe for a skinny latte for me and a croissant for Paul, and a quick chat with Billie too

It was lovely and sunny, though it was still very windy (which made the sunbathing more comfortable). I caught up on my trip report and read and we lasted out till gone 11

We went back to our room to get changed for our Palo Brunch reservation at 12, and after a brief wait in the Meridian Lounge we were shown to our table by the window. Our server today was Olivera from Bosnia and after introducing herself and taking our order of water and Mimosas, she showed us to the tables of delicious food. First we saw the pizzas, then the breakfast items, seafood, cheeses, mains, egg dishes and finally the most important table, the desserts



















We were given a plate and I filled it with all my favourite food, this is probably my absolute favourite meal onboard









Then our egg dishes came out, I had Eggs Florentine and Paul had Eggs Julia, then Olivera brought out a dish of Lasagna to share. It was all very nice, but the Lasagna was delish, in fact so nice, Paul then ordered it as his main dish while I had the Beef Tenderloin which was a perfect size after eating all the other food







After our mains, Paul had a pot of tea, then we went up to get our desserts, and as ever the Tiramisu was divine



We enjoyed a leisurely hour and a half there, the food was delicious and our server was lovely too, we never once felt rushed

Cont'd ...

We returned to our room to get changed and chilled for a while till our Mixology class at 3pm

Our Mixology class had been arranged by Emily from our Facebook group and when it was announced, it filled up very quickly. It was held in the Skyline Lounge, and after a couple of laps around deck 4 to try and walk off some of our Brunch, we headed to our class

The Mixology Class had been very popular (thank you Emily for organising it), and when we got there we sat with Emily and her hubby Scott

Damion was hosting this class, and I knew it was going to be fun once I saw all the glasses lined up and looking inviting







Groups of 4 or 5 of us took turns making different cocktails. First up was a Raspberry Mojito, I wasn't looking forward to this one as I find the mint very off putting, but it turned out to be very refreshing.





Next up was a Sea Breeze which was a Malibu based cocktail, it was very nice





Next, I volunteered to be in the group to make the Champagne cocktail, well it was Prosecco actually, but it made a good Kir Royale









The next group made a Martini cocktail, this one was a good one too, and looked cool with all its layers









Then we finished off with Paul joining the group to make a shot cocktail







As we had already had a couple of Mimosa's that lunch time, these cocktails really went to my head it was a great way to spend an hour or so on a sea day, and afterwards we sat with a few of our group just chatting. I would definitely do this again, and it was fun to do it with people we had been chatting to over the last few months

We returned to our room to change back into our swimwear, and we sat out in the sun for a little while, though it was still very windy

We returned to our room to chill, get showered and get ready for dinner which tonight was in Animator's Palette. Tonight was the Crush Show. It was lots of fun as Crush interacted with the kids in the dining room







For starter I had the sweet potato soup and Paul had the baked potato soup, for our mains I had the lemon thyme chicken and Paul had beef, to finish off I had cookies & cream sundae and Paul had apple pie with ice cream from the kids menu, (lol), it was all very nice and washed down with a couple of Bahama Mama's

We were shattered tonight, so once dinner was over we headed back to our room and bed



Tomorrow ~ St. Thomas

Brunch at Palo looked delicious. The Lasagne looked great. I wonder if they have introduced a few new brunch dishes on the Wonder, too. The Mixology class looked amazing.

Great update Mandy. I am in the process of trying to arrange a private mixology class for our cruise so was glad to see that it looked like great fun - and plenty of alcohol All of the drinks look (and sound) lovely.
