Oh man, I am so behind!!!

LOVE the cabin crawl! I've heard of the visiting different cabins before but never heard of adding poker to the mix! LOVE IT!!! Gotta do that one time!!!

I agree with Nanc, if I was in that suite, I would never leave LOL!

Love the Halloween pics! You all look very groovy

Oh Castaway Cay

Next time we will be sitting where you did on that first beach! The second beach was so ridiculously PACKED!!! Never again!!!

Oh the captain! Hahaha, oh yeah! I didn't even know who our captain was, never even thought of it until that photo you posted Thanks for showing me, I am assuming he was ours too

I can't believe it's almost done!!!

Ya it was fun and it was the perfect amount of people too! The first cabin crawl we had over 60 people and had to use 2 decks of cards. That was on a Carnival cruise and we were threatened by security because we were too loud.

I agree with Nanc, if I was in that suite, I would never leave LOL!

I had a hard time leaving myself!

It was perfect! The other beach was kinda crowded.

Oh the captain! Hahaha, oh yeah! I didn't even know who our captain was, never even thought of it until that photo you posted Thanks for showing me, I am assuming he was ours too

Haha I figured you would have know who the Captain was... although I can't remember his name.

I can't believe it's almost done!!!
I know... I'm sad about almost being done! And you're not even on the ship yet!

all caught up!

Taylor Mason was on our cruise in 2005. We thought he was great!

Wow that cabin crawl looks like fun! Nice that you got to see Robins and my cabin from the cruise that followed yours!. Perhaps that was your red br@ we found under the chair? Now theres a mystery that may never get solved!

You got a Captain picture eh? Robin spent the week fawning over an officer named Daniel. He was on our 1st Disney cruise in 2001. Robin about melted when she got a picture with him.

Castaway Cay is the best! We got to see a wedding there in 2008. Robin kept yelling out to the bride, "You"ll be sorry"!
We love the adult beach but always hit the family beach for a few hours later before getting back on the ship.

Speaking of red br@....the real mystery is where you trip report might be!

I was looking for Pierre so I could take a pic and tag Robin in it but didn't see him. Glad to see she moved on since he wasn't there I DID get that pic of Jessica Rabbit for you last time, I figured it was Robins turn

One of these days I will see the adult beach... We are considering skipping Carnival this year and sailing with Disney instead. So I may get to see it THIS year

The Last supper

We got back to our rooms after our heavenly day at Castaway and after showering started packing up to leave. It’s never done as neatly as when we are preparing to leave FOR vacation. We got quite a bit done before we left for dinner. We were dining at the Royal Court for our last meal, which was nice since we pretty much had that back room all to ourselves. There was a lot of mingling and loud chatting and a bit of pilfering…. Wendy missed someone on her souvenir list perhaps.



The boys pretty much made themselves at home…



They all look at little pinkish.





Wasn’t sure at first if this was before or after supper but the chocolate face gives it away.



So after supper we stopped off at shutters because I really wanted the picture of the ladies. It wasn’t in my folder and they said that it would have only gone to one folder but we could order it. I was with my mom and she wanted one as well so we ordered 2 copies and they said it would be ready the next morning. My mom kept checking her folder over the week and there was never a picture in it and nothing would show up when she swiped her card. So she asked them when we ordered the picture why she wouldn’t have ANY pictures. They thought that was quite strange as well. They asked about the embarkation photo but my mom said that my dad was in such a hurry to get on the ship and knowing that he had not intended to buy that photo he passed on getting the picture taken. Well that is the photo that they go off of for the facial recognition. So people never pass on that embarkation photo! They have an area of extra photos that they don’t know where they belong so my mom found her pirate night photo and put that one in her folder. That way it would ready for her to buy the next day when we picked up our formal night photos. It kinda sucked that she didn’t have any photos but it was lucky for me. She had a whole bunch of free photo coupons from her travel agent and couldn’t use them so she let me have the remainder. I was very grateful and got all the pictures that I wanted which were all of 4. I was a little disappointed in the lack of photos this time around. We did not see one photographer on Castaway Cay this trip. Some of our best photos are from them on previous cruises and this cruise…. nothing. This was actually kind of good as we were going to splurge this trip and buy the CD but it was not worth it when there were only 4 pictures that I wanted….and they were FREE!

So back to the room to finish up packing and we decided to skip the show that night as we had too much to do. Once we were finished we decided to head to the pool and ride the Aquaduck a few more times. It was pretty cool riding at night! We met up with our friends and spent some time in the hot tub. This was my first time in the hot tub and didn’t know about the glass bottom. It was pretty cool! I wish I had have seen it during the day. After we were done with the hot tub we tried to go one more time on the Aquaduck but sadly it was closed. So we played cards instead. Dutch Blitz was a favourite last year so we played a few rounds of that. Look at the concentration!



Luke was pretty tired as I think this was the latest he had stayed up all week.



I think it was around midnight before we left to head back to the cabin and we said some goodbyes as this was the last time we would see them for quite some time.

We still have one more day though before we had to head home.

Next up… Say it ain’t so. The official OFFICIAL last day

I know! I've been dragging my feet on my last post because then it really is over lol. She was able to find 1 pic that she wanted from pirate night so that's good at least but I was certainly grateful for the pics that I got!

So, NOW we know why we didn't get one of those cool carriage baskets a week later.

Char, I just can't get over how your little guy looks so much like Nate! They could be book ends!

Can't wait to see all those pictures of you guys up on deck on Saturday morning (around 5:00 am) taking pictures of us waving at you from the pier close to Grills.
