I can not even begin to say how disappointed I am reading about the Muesli! I have been looking forward to an icy cold bowl of that since March when I had it on the dream! BOO!

Everything else did look very good, though- especially the brunch at remy! We did decide to do dinner this time, but in the future I will do the brunch most definitely!

Isn't the show in Animator's really different than on the Dream? With everyone's drawings animated? Well, I guess I will find out for sure in 2 months, huh!

Looking forward to reading more, of course!

I have never tried cabanas dinner either. Maybe after I get a few more under my belt I'll give that a try. So is the menu a mix of the other dining rooms?

Hi Karin! I haven't been feeling well this week and have gotten kind of behind on my DIS'ing. But I'm catching up tonight!

LOVED reading about your Remy brunch. Wasn't that sea bass incredible???? I wish I was eating it right now.

I love that you know so many crew members - how fun that must be.

What a shame about your magnet.

I am sorry I have neglected this thread for nearly a week, but it has been a busy one.

It started out with me being pretty clumsy and burning my arm.



While making some tea, I put the teapot in the sink as to NOT burn myself should it accidentially tip over. So I poured the boiling water into the pot, and while I was putting the kettle back, I tipped over a cup that was standing at the side. I reached over, tipped the spout of the pot in the sink and poured myself with the hot water.
I spent the next four hours showering my arm with attention and cool water. I must have done a good job as I don't have any blisters but a nice red mark from the elbow to my hand.
Now that happened last Saturday. I did not do a lot of typing over the weekend, then updated my trip report and that was it.
To add in to a busy week came the fact that my co-teacher and friend started her maternity leave on Thursday and I needed to get the present my pupils had made for her ready. Plus there was a large exam last Thursday and in the afternoon of that day I had a huge migrane kick in, which resulted in me leaving early from school and another teacher having to take me home.
So I spent yesterday doing some shopping and marking exams. I am proud to add that they ALL passed!

Okay, so no on to answering your comments an then a new update!

The DIS was down (as every morning - my time), so I checked in on My Disney Experience and guess what .........


I was able to costumize our magic bands for February!


We didn't get any for our summer stay last year, but will get two sets for our February stay (1 night pre cruise at VGF and 2 nights post cruise at OKW) I am sooooooooooo excited!

Tom picked blue and green bands for himself and mine will be red and orange. Can't wait to wear them!


OH, and by the way ........

only 97 more days until our February trip - so it is time for the

How sad that someone took your magnet. It always bothers me when I hear about things like that happening. Our magnets are pretty sentimental at this point, having been on three cruises with us so far. It's a shame that there are people out there who are so thoughtless.
Cabanas definitely is nice option if you do not want to dine in the MDR. As much as we like the MDRs, AP gets so loud with the Crush show that we will gladly miss it if there is a chance to.
So, this is how Cabanas came into play for us. They offer a mix of the cruise favourite dishes, plus throw in a steak or two.
It is very nice and quiet, the view is gorgeous and the service always wonderful.

In 2012 we had about EVERYTHING stolen from our door, so nowadays we come prepared and bring at least a second of every magnet. I was prepared to lose one or two of them, but to lose the personalized magnet above the door number was quite a surprise for us.
Oh, and we do have a magnet that says "please don't take anything" but I don't want to put it on as I do not want to give someone an idea.

How fun to meet up with your old tablemates! Your story made me think of our first tablemates - I can't even remember their names, but I do remember their stories.
The Italian Liqueur tasting sounds interesting - is everything bitter? Well, I guess Amaretto isn't. I know the Italian "coke" in Club Cool was horribly bitter. Thanks so much for writing!
Yeah, how nice that you got all caught up!

Looking at all the photos it does look like non stop eating, but I asure you there were hours in between meals.

Not all Italian spirits are bitter - these were. They were after dinner liqueurs which CAN get quite bitter.

What a nice dinner at Cabanas. Too bad about your steak.. It looks so juicy and delicious. But the sundae looks even better!

Aw man, sorry about your magnet. I was always worried about one of our magnets being stolen. However, it seemed that someone always put one on our door!
I really hope that you and DH will get a chance to try Remy lunch soon. I guess Calvin will soon be old enough to experience his first Disney cruise.

The sundae was really good! And Tom's steak was delicious. I wasn't really hungry in the first place so I didn't mind about the tough steak much.

Lucky girl, getting extra magnets.
I have always been worried about some of the door decorations being stolen. We went on 8 cruises and NOTHING went missing, then on cruise no 9 there was a bunch of boys who stayed at Concierge who would not only steal our magnets, but everything that was put in the FE as well. I did confront them, but after a day or two, we just took the FE inside and took the decorations down. I did say very loudly that "there are the thieves again" every time we came across them and they RAN!!!

Day 7, August 13

A visit to the Netherlands and France before Captain Jack takes over the Fantasy - Part 1

Today we were up early and at quarter to 7 we were on our way out the door and up to the top deck.









We were just moving into the port of Sint Maarten when we got to Satellite Falls





and ran into our cruise friends, Jean and Paul, who had brought over their breakfast plates from Cabanas to watch us dock while enjoying their breakfast. We walked as far forward as we could and watched the ship being docked.









It was still overcast and slightly cool, but no one really cared. The view was stunning

















and when we were finally docked the blue skies started to come through. And after having taken numerous photos and a few more words with our friends we headed downstairs











and got our things ready for our excursion before heading to the Royal Court for breakfast again.

To be continued ............

Good idea though if you aren't feeling the main dining rooms - I shall have to remember that tip
So far I need to have lunch at Remy and dinner at Cabanas - keep the good ideas coming !!
It's a nice place for a quiet dinner. We have been a few times yet, mostly to escape the "regular" AP.
I am sure you'll love lunch at Remy! It is really a wonderful experience. Get the champagne pairing.

Good choice, Kathy! And the Mickey ketchup is a must!

The food on board is really good. And it doesn't help that there is so much available ALL day long.

It really seems to be a sign of the times that people feel so entitled to everything they see. I don't care if it is grown ups or kids, it's just not right.

The soup is super yummy! I didn't mind too much about the steak or otherwise I would have said something and the sundae made more than up for it.

Yeah for leaving in just a few days. It will be here before you know it.

I am happy to hear that you enjoy coming along for the "ride". We had an awesome vacation and there is lots more to come.

I am mad about your magnet though!
You made it. Can't believe that with all the travelling you do, you are still able to catch up on all the treads so quickly.

It was so nice to run into Jean and Paul. They brought back some very happy memories.
The officers meet and greet is such a fun event. Oh, and not to forget free sparkling wine.

I loved St Martaan. Can't wait to hear about your day.
