Pirate Night

Another beautiful sunset before festivities start at pirate night



In our last two cruises, I have always missed actually going to pirate night opting to see the fireworks from our balcony instead. This trip, I was determined to see the actual show which I was glad I did.



Lots of people though not as many as there could be. Many - Most do dress in pirate attire. So if you are game make sure you pack your eye patch and peg leg as you will be in good company.



we happened to be standing next to Heidi Blickenstaff, the Broadway singer from the night before. She is a talented performer so we shouldn't be to hard on her, but just kind of awkward on stage being herself. But once she was in character she was good but wish she had better song choices.



I really loved seeing the characters in their pirate attire!



We were standing on the 10th decking looking down onto to the dance floor. The entertainment is also projected on the large screen.





"sweet moves chip"...

The fireworks that almost weren't

I was all set ready to see Mickey come in to save the night...



When he was called down from the smoke stack. There were obviously some kind of issues so they carried on with more dancing. No characters just cast members who kept the dancing going.

Well no characters except the Cheshire Cat...




It was a very eerie feeling the smiling moon kept circling around the ship. Well in actuality we kept circling. The Captain was doing his best to find some wind in order to have the firework display.



He eventually succeeded, well enough to safely set off the fireworks. But these were right over head. Normally the wind carries them further off the starboard but this time it was pretty much directly above. so unfortunately my parents were not able so see them this time from their balcony.











I am so glad the Captain made such an effort to have the fireworks since there were, surprisingly, no firework displays at Disneyland during the three nights we were there (spoiler alert).

Day 10 - sea day

This morning the weather was a little rougher - not bad at all but the adult pool was closed.



but still the seats are all taken first thing in the morning.



looked like a wave pool



Again, no one was at the family pool and DSis and I sat and watched Aladdin by the pool. I guess the seats are comfier at the adult pool, but I liked having the pool to myself practically and loved watching the old movies.

Day 10 breakfast

DSis and I had a hearty breakfast at the Beach Blanket Buffet. Funny how after a big dinner you are so hungry in the morning.



We enjoyed the view off the back of the ship

Day 10 mid morning

DSis and I return to the goofy pool and to Alladin. This time getting in the water to watch.




Then I get settled into a lounge chair to sun on the top deck while DSis goes to the room to change.


All to myself!



DSis and Mom decide to go to a cheese tasting class. I told them I didn't need a class for that - I'm familiar enough.



I made the right call.



Apparently the speakers just read from printed out Wikipedia entries.



Mmm... boring

Day 10 Lunch



So sunning and learning about cheese made us all hungry and I met DSis and both parents at Beach Blanket Buffet for lunch.





They had a baked potato bar at the very end of the buffet - where the omlette station was in the mornings. This was the best baked potato! Honestly. Though, I don't have baked potatoes very often - this one was one of the best I'd had, anytime. The swordfish was okay - they had set up an outdoor grill again. But the potato was the best.

How awesome! My mom would love something like that. We're on the transtlantic next year and hopefully they'll have something similar.

She's big on going to the buffets to find new foods and I'm lazy and just go to Triton's/Lumiere's.

I love that on the Wonder they're always using that outdoor grill

BTW your breakfast plate---- that's exactly the same stuff my DH would get. Donut, fruit and other random pastries. Mine would be all meats

Only another 405 days until I can experience these things for myself. I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready.

I definitely like tritons too but you are right about finding different offerings at the buffet!

afternoon

Dsis and I started the afternoon together with attending the next segment about Disney Animation. I really enjoyed listening to these. Quite interesting but sad that they really aren't doing hand animation anymore.



Then we went our separate ways. My afternoon was spent on the verandah


and catching some great photos





Dolphins!


There were lots of sea turtles. I talked with someone who was in a porthole cabin on a low deck and apparently these were really cool to see from their room being so close to them.




Dude, I am totally far from the EAC


and then cue the music dun-dun! dun-dun! dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun, da-na-na



yep what I thought was a dolphin on further inspection of my photo turned out to be a shark. I took it in anticipation of its jump but it never came out of the water so looked closer and it is definitely the shape of a shark not a dolphin!

Afternoon for Dsis

Dsis can only remember this from her afternoon



And all I remember is her coming out on the balcony and saying "whazzz up!"

Yep that means it was the Tequila and Margarita Tasting!

so here are some photos to help fill in the blanks.







and on top of that she won the door prize of the ultimate margarita



She actually did learn a lot about the different kinds of tequila and had a great time with Ddad - Father-Daughter Tequila tasting
