In Meridian, there are doors where you can go out on the aft deck, so DS and I went out to get some nice pics of us and the sunset:













We had a great meal at Palo's. I remember having:
-the Grilled Portobella Mushroom with Polenta (I discovered during the cruise that I really love Polenta)
-the Oregano and Parmesan Crusted Rack of Lamb
With Sangiovese Roasted Shallots, Olive Oil baked Roma Tomatoes, Potato Pave, and Herb Jus

and DS had:
-Mozzarella and Plum Tomatoes
-Beef Tenderloin "Palo"
Topped with melted Gorgonzola Cheese or Palo signature Barolo Red Wine Sauce (DS chose the cheese sauce)

We both got an antipasto platter before our appetizers and we both had the chocolate souffle for dessert.

We then turned in for the night:


Thus we ended our first full sea day. The next sea day...princesses, trivia and Remy's!

Looks like you both had a great time on the cruise. I am going on a 7-night Cruise on the Disney Fantasy this November with my DH and four daughters and I am happy to say that my identical twin sister is joining me on this cruise. This will be my 8th Disney Cruise and my twin sister's 1st Disney Cruise. Finally, after years of telling her how much fun Disney cruises are, she caved and decided to check it out for herself. I know she will love cruising and I know this will not be her last cruise. I hope to get as many photos with my twin sister on this cruise as you did with your twin sister. I really enjoyed reading about your trip and seeing all the great photos. Thanks for sharing

2nd Sea Day

Got up to a lovely view from our virtual porthole:


Then on to another delicious breakfast at Royal Court.

DS vigorously using her hand wipes:






Took some more pictures around the ship:

It was time to get in line for the Princess Gathering in the Lobby. We got in line about 15 minutes before it started so we were pretty close to the front. While we were waiting, Aladdin came to take pictures with the people in line:



Then the princesses arrived (video):


We got pictures and made small talk with the princesses













Later in the day, they even had Minnie in her princess outfit on the 4th floor:



After that, I think we started the Muppet Detective agency game (we didn't finish it all in one day...it's nice that the card they give you saves your game). The detective agency games were not working when we first tried at 9am - it was not registering your card (there was even an error message on screen on the 5th floor kiosk). We let quest services know and it was fixed when we tried it after seeing the princesses.



Then it was more time for...trivia! This time TV tunes trivia in O'Gills Pub again:



We seemed to be getting a reputation...when we walked in, another family was in there playing jenga before the trivia started and remarked that we would probably win this one, too. Guess what...we did!
I blame Songpop on facebook for being able to recognize tunes with only a few seconds of music provided (plus, too much pop culture knowledge). Our prize...more Disney cruise line earbuds!

Then it was back to Royal Court for lunch (did I mention we prefer table service over buffet )


Antipasto appetizer


chilled duck appetizer


Banana Smoothie


Chilled Strawberry soup


Pasta and Meatballs


Kebabs over couscous

After that I think we went back to the room for a bit and rested before we left to see the 3pm showing of Wishes in the theatre:


We both thought the show was ok, but liked Aladdin and Believe better.

We then went back to the room and started to get dressed for Remy.
Cinderella was going to be out again and we both wanted a picture of us in our second formal dresses with her. Besides, we would sort of match, with us being all in blue:


We proceeded up to Meridian again and checked in for our 6pm seating at Remy's.




If you look closely, you can see DS wearing her figment pin with the Swavorski crystals :-)



Remember that fancy Gusteau room from before? We actually got to eat in there!






Our server, Gerard from the U.K. was wonderful. He informed us that if we don't drink (which we don't..just never liked the taste of alcohol) that instead of the Colette cocktail they had a non-alcoholic cocktail call the Linguini....it was delicious and had a pomegranate-type flavor. This was a nice surprise as I had never read about this before.





We did not get pictures of the tomato soup cube or the ratatouille with olive oil ice cream, but we did get pictures of all the other food. So now...

Then, the cheese selection was wheeled to us. DS was a little more adventurous than I:




Dessert time. We got new napkins for dessert:


We both got the chocolate cherry tart:






I told her she had to do it...quick, before our server come back!

At the end of dinner, we got a selection of candies and a box of chocolates. Well, we were both too full at this point to eat them, so they kindly wrapped them up for us. We each got a red rose as we left and a small vase with water in it was waiting for us when we got back in our room. Eating at Remy's was wonderful and we both enjoyed ourselves. We turned in for the night with our latest towel animal.







Next up: St. Martin, the spa adventure and Pirates who turn in early lol.

I probably won't get to upload pictures again until Monday, so have a great weekend and enjoy reading what I've posted so far while I enjoy reading yours!

Thanks so much for sharing your report and your pictures. It looks like you and your sister had a wonderful time. And I LOVE all of your formal night dresses! Do you mind if I ask where you bought them???

Thanks! We got them at Dillards - most malls in Florida have them, not sure about other states.
