Oh my gosh, how funny! I loved seeing him out there knowing someone else was enjoying the view as much as I was. I hope he likes his new name!

Thanks for posting the picture! I actually really liked his shirt! I think it's one of the things that drew me to take his picture! Tell him I enjoyed our time together even if he didn't know!

I called him as soon as I saw the picture and we had a good laugh. "Fred" is close but his real name is Bill. He enjoyed that view more than I can tell you.

Great updates, I love the relaxed day you had in St Thomas
The movement of the ship that evening scares me though - not sure how I would have coped
I will have to remember the walk like Mickey or Goofy tip!

Okay, so before I get started on day 6 I realized I forgot to post our towel animal last time, and I need someone to help me with this one!

Vivek said it was from UP but he didn't say who or what it was. The only thing I can think of is the bird maybe? Anyone have a clue?

On with day 6! I woke up to find that the ship was still really moving. Taking a shower while maintaining a death grip on the hand rail was quite the experience! I woke Brian up around 8:30 and we headed down to Royal Court for breakfast. I think everyone had the same idea because it was packed, we had to wait a few minutes but it wasn't a bad wait.

I really would love to have one of these coach lights!


Cruise 2013 1523 by princessm112877, on Flickr

Brian enjoying some coffee, pinky out dear.


Cruise 2013 1524 by princessm112877, on Flickr

At breakfast they bring around a tray of pastries for you to select from. In their typical fashion, they don't take no for an answer if you say you don't want something. I politely declined a pastry and ended up with a danish anyway! lol It was yummy so it was all good.

I like what I like for breakfast, even when ordering off the menu! lol I also had some toast.


Cruise 2013 1528 by princessm112877, on Flickr

Brian had waffles


Cruise 2013 1530 by princessm112877, on Flickr

I know I mentioned it before but I really love the look of Royal Court, it's just such a beautiful restaurant to me.

Cruise 2013 1532 by princessm112877, on Flickr


Cruise 2013 1534 by princessm112877, on Flickr

Our breakfast was very good but I don't know if it was because they were so busy or what but the service, while adequate, wasn't up to the same standard we had experienced earlier in the week.

After breakfast we went down to guest services and got a print out of our account charges thus far, then went back up to the room for a little bit. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, so bright and blue!

Cruise 2013 1542 by princessm112877, on Flickr


Cruise 2013 1545 by princessm112877, on Flickr

We started getting a little sleepy and decided to give the Midship Detective Agency another go to get ourselves up and moving again. We were able to get the game to work this time and set about solving our mystery! We chose the Muppets game and it was so much fun. You really get to see a lot of the ship this way and with tips I learned here on the DIS it was a lot easier. Things like tackling all the paintings one deck at a time, and taking a picture of the info on Pepe's door to refer back to during the game.


Cruise 2013 1575 by princessm112877, on Flickr


Cruise 2013 1569 by princessm112877, on Flickr

We worked up an appetite running around the ship and headed up to Cabana's for lunch. They had potato leek soup on embarkation day and I didn't get any, so I was hoping they would have it again today. It was not to be. They had parsnip and I gave it a shot, but it wasn't that appealing to my taste buds. Everything else was good though and since it was such a beautiful day we enjoyed sitting on the outside deck.

My next update will be a little more exciting, it will have the Wine & Chocolate seminar as well as the Galley Tour. I'll try to get it up tomorrow.

What a terrific TR! I LOVE how every update is linked separate. So easy to read everything without having to wade through multiple comments! Awesome!

Quick question though, I had no idea about the air not turning on unless something was put in the card slot? Can someone explain this to me? Is that on the inside or outside of the door? I guess I don't understand "keeping" the lights on once you're inside the room?

Thanks and I'm thinking this will be a valuable tip!
