Sounds like a great day so far. We had at least three of those same drinks in our mixology class. But a Cosmo instead of the Appletini and not the you can't remember the name of.

Those classes are so fun and I'm sure even better if you have friends to pair up with!

So what is muesli? I've always been all over the bacon and eggs, waffles and stick to your ribs foods, it sounded kind of healthy so I've akways paused it over.

I'm so trying to figure out where we can work in a Fantasy cruise. After reading yours and Karin's reports, I just have to go so we can do Remy brunch! And dinner and Palo brunch and dinner. There just isn't time on a Dream cruise.

LOL! can't imagine why?!

Yes! Let's work on that!

So what is muesli? I've always been all over the bacon and eggs, waffles and stick to your ribs foods, it sounded kind of healthy so I've akways paused it over.

Its a little healthy- but SUPER YUMMY! It is some cereal (like granola, but not the chunky kind) and yogurt and fruit- but there are apples sliced very slimly, and that mixes in very nicely- it is ice cold- I guess (to me) a much better version of oatmeal? Maybe Karin can help here?I DESPISE oatmeal- love this- ???

Listen girlfriend, you have GOT to go on the Fantasy- the Dream is similar- but the Fantasy is a whole new level- REALLY. Trust me.

Awesome updates, Ellen! I loved to see the photos of your mixology class. We were signed up for one last summer, but then there was this "know it all - I can do everything better than anyone else" newbie who got involved in everything and we simply backed out. I could not let her ruin my trip.
Looking forward to signing up on one next summer.

Rainforest looks awesome. We have never done that either. But I guess it might be in our future.
Do you know if they have something similar on the Magic?

Can't wait for more!

Muesli - something very common here in Austria. It originally is Swiss and was developed by a Swiss physician who "preached" healthy living.

It usually is based on rolled oats to which you can add seeds and other rolled grains.



The mixture looks somewhat like this with raisins and fruit added for sweetness.

Now the Bircher Muesli they have on the ship has shredded apple in it.

You make it by soaking the dry mixture overnight in milk or yoghurt, then about half an hour before serving you add the apple or other fruit. I love raisins and have plenty in mine and since I can't have apple (gives me a belly ache) I use berries and a little honey. Yum, yum!

Hope that explained what it is - otherwise, please ask more questions.

Ellen, I swear your cruise routine is pretty much identical to mine!
After hitting the gym, I adore the muesli and oatmeal at Cabanas
Love the rainforest room, go there every day
Mixology class? But of course!
The only thing you haven't got in there is a trip to Cove Cafe

Hi Ellen! You are the update queen this week! Your Remy dinner looks amazing, and you two looked fabulous attending it, also! How cool to have an escort back from the restroom - that way you don't have to worry about getting lost on your way back, AND you get to be on the arm of a handsome guy, too. Oh wait! You came with a handsome guy You're just livin' large!

I forgot that DCL does time zone chages - RCCL just has "ship time" which can be confusing when you are off the ship. The mixology class looks like a lot of fun - a lot to drink, too Sea days are so nice to just get some relaxation in - looks like you did a good job with that. Looking forward to your report on Aladdin!

Sticking with what he knows best, our boy, Pods, proceeded to pour Grey Goose to a count of 30....

106 mississippi, 107 mississippi.....


He was then encouraged to maybe add something else for flavor. Here is where it all fell apart, my friends, because there are about 3 drinks Pods can make- beer, wine (preferably with a screwtop) and vodka on the rocks. He has got those DOWN, I tell ya! But when it comes to higher mixology (you know- "with a twist" or "and tonic") he usually gets all flustered and defers to moi.

You can't make this stuff up.



Sorry it's blurry, i think I was snorting some chocolate tiny tini out my nose I was laughing so hard when I took the pic.

Shake it up, baby!



Then it was time to taste- he was AWFULLY impressed with himself-



Will he EVER come out from behind that bar????






OMG! That is just TOO funny!

Beer Wine & Vodka. Seriously, what else is there?

OMG - all these mixology classes look so fun for those of us who are studiously inclined. I so want to do one of them!

Thanks for the great laugh!

Happy Easter!

Great Updates! Your Remy dinner looked fantastic, but not as good as you and Pods! Va va voom! What a dress, and DH cleaned up pretty well in his tux too!

Does Remy have a non-seafood section, or is it mostly seafood? Not that I've had an opportunity for there yet, but future research… We totally loved our Palo brunch, and thought that was better than dinner from our last cruise.

Was Pods reading a romance novel by the pool? Sorry, I'm too lazy to go back and find the pic right now…

Also, any chance of you ever going back to your CA TR to finish up?

Getting caught up and loving every one of your updates!

Your Remy meal looks amazing. And you looked beautiful. DH wants to try eating there some time but I'm not to sure about me. I'm not a real picky eater but I don't like a lot of seafood. Love me some shrimp and fish though.

Loved the pictures at your tastings! Looks like you had lots of fun. And I love Selami! We have had him before as a bartender and he is such a nice guy. Cute too!

But looking at the photos this morning makes me wish I was sitting up on deck right now. Just looking out over that big beautiful ocean, relaxing. Ahhhhhhhhh.

You & Pods sure do clean up nice! Then you go spill on yourself, can't take you anywhere!
I haven't had an appletini in a long time, my go to drink is a Cosmo, but now am starting to get dirty Martinis more often.

Our last cruise was with our sons, the only time we saw them was for meals & shore trips. It was wonderful!

Getting caught up, I am still a few pages behind but I had to say how sorry I am about the loss of your SIL. My Prayers are with you and your family.

We are going through something similar with my BIL, he has Adenocarcinoma that has spread to his bones, he is hanging in ok for now but it's just so hard to see, especially when they are so young (he is 41) and have little ones (He has 2 boys 5 1/2 and 7). How old are your SIL's boys?
