I love the Moet & Chandon Ice Champagne to Karin
I've never managed to find a bottle to buy here in the UK though
I didn't know that they have vegetable quesedillas on the lunch menu, I would love those

What adorable FE gifts!

The champagne tasting sounds like something right up my alley. How fun!

Your burgers look pretty darn good, too! Nothing beats mickey ketchup, until you have to dip your fries in it.

I have to admit that I had quite a few glasses of the Ice Champagne.

Tom found some bottles on ebay - we have never found them around here either.

Linda, you have to try the vegetable quesadillas. They are really nice! And they have a halibut dish as well (I always sub mash instead of the rice it comes with) which is heaveny.

We got the most awesome gifts on that second cruise. Don't get me wrong we got some really nice ones on the first one as well, but the gifts of the second cruise were absolutely amazing.

I am sure Ellen will get you all set up for the tasting on your cruise. Your really should do the champagne one. It's so nice and you really get to try some great champagnes.

We got some really great gifts on that cruise, Rosie! If you get to cruise again, you should sign up for the FE, it is so much fun.
Those hamburgers were really HUGE. If we had known about their size we could easily have shared one.

Yeah! Another one who loves Moet Ice!
I promise to have one for you in two weeks when we return to the Dream.

Day 12, August 18

Day at sea means lots of food - Part 3

But about an hour later we were out and about again, heading up to the top deck for the drink of the day.
We stayed and watched people in the main pool for a while











before we headed past the Splash area









and up to Currents where we picked up two drinks of the day,



a “blue-ish” concoction which wasn’t really my drink at all. We found some deck chairs half in the shade, made ourselves comfortable watching the waves and sipping our drink.



We talked about our vacation so far and what was still ahead of us and after about half an hour we gave up our seats as it got way too hot for us. And since we were already walking around we headed down to deck 4 and made our on board booking.
I told the lady that we already held a booking and what ship and date it was for and asked NOT to be put on that same cruise. She promised it would not happen and went on to book a pretty cheap cruise. Back in our room I went online and checked the reservation and low and behold it was for the same cruise. Needless to say that we headed right back to the Future cruise desk and since the lady who had sold us the cruise was busy with other guests, the second cast member sitting there worked with us and got things sorted out.
We walked through the Vista Gallery again and then slowly made our way back to our stateroom. We rested for a little while out on the veranda just long enough for the first dinner seating to be close to opening time and then, now in swimsuits we headed up to deck 12 to Satellite Falls.





There was only one other lady there and so we had no problem finding loungers and having the water area to ourselves. Having missed it on the first cruise we found it to be a lot of fun









and spent about half an hour in there until we could see thunder and lightning in the distance.
So we packed up our stuff and headed one deck down to the adult pool, which again had to ourselves.



We swam a bit, but the pool is small and there is not much swimming to be done and once the heavens got darker we got out of that pool and headed over to the hot tub.
And as always the thought of being able to look down to the sea through the glass bottom made me a bit uneasy,









but we soon got over it in the bubbling hot water. We watched the clowds getting closer and closer and there were some really frightening lightnings,



so after about 15 minutes we decided to get out, dry off and try to fit in dinner before we wanted to head to the Walt Disney Theatre for this evening’s performance of Aladdin.
So once back in the stateroom we jumped in the shower, got dressed nicely and headed up to Cabanas for dinner.

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

Sounds like a good morning and some afternoon.
The champagne tasting sounds good.
MMM, the quesadilla looks good.
Not sure if I like that glass bottom floor. Might make me sick too.
Some nasty looking clouds.
All caught up.

Thank you, Linda!
It is nice to see the ocean through that window, but it took some getting used to.

A nice hot tub sounds perfect right now! I do think it is neat you can see down to the ocean, but again at the same time freaky!

Oh my! You got quite the goodies in your FE!

The champagne tasting looks like it was a lot of fun. I can see why you would need something to eat after though. What better to eat to help metabolize that champagne than a giant burger. Looks very yummy!

As I saw the picture of your blue drink, I thought "wow, that is a different drink for her. Then I read

I am not sure how I feel about that glass bottom in the hot tub! I think it would freak me out just a tad.

It has been very cold with lots of snow lately.




I can't believe we are missing each other in two weeks. But at least we are planning on going back for 4 weeks in August of 2015, so plenty of time to plan and plenty of time there to meet again.
we will have to make plans way in advance and pray everyone is healthy!!!
The FE gift your received are so NICE !!
The storm pictures are quite impressive and a little scary!!!

As usual, Karin, I’m playing catch-up.

I am totally cracking up that you two were just sitting one deck above us as we sailed away!

Hey - we were in Royal Court (second seating) that first night too! That spinach/cheese souffle looks yummy, and the soup looks perfect. Mmmmm

Very cool to read about the Captain’s Reception for your fancy gold and platinum people.

I really wanted to do the Champagne tasting, but I tend to forget all about them (and the need to sign up for them) once we board the ship. Maybe next time. It looks like so much fun!

Oh, I love going to Royal Court for lunch! So yummy, and I like being surrounded by all the fancy princess stuff.

Feeling a little envious of your adult-only-area time though…...

Hi Karin I've been following along your awesome TR but haven't posted yet. Just wanted to say thanks for all the pics and time you've put into this awesome report! Makes my long wait until cruising next April a bit more bearable! Would love to do a btb someday. We had one booked on the Dream but we love the Caribbean itinerary to much so we switched back to the Fantasy. We went last June and had Captain Tom so we definitely know about the no whistle thing just didn't know what his reasoning was. On top of the rain as we were leaving Port Canaveral not hearing the horn just totally set the cruise off to a sour start but we didn't let that ruin our week I hope he's gone by next April or learns how to play the horns We had a medical emergency and woke up to Nassau instead of Castaway Cay and as we were leaving Royal Caribbean sounded a goodbye to us and so did the Dream. We thought for sure he'd sound off a response to the Dream at least. We just thought that was pretty rude. Hope you have a great time on your cruise coming up. We really want to move to Florida just to be closer to cruising

French toast and pineapple stack! Wow, sounds delicious!

Love the 'drink up me hearties yo ho' shot glasses and small shots to accompany them. Great idea!

I'm not too familiar with Champagnes, other than I enjoy drinking it when i get a chance How interesting to drink that particular champagne with ice.

Did you say the hot tub has glass bottom? Like the entire hot tub?! That would be a little freaky
