I am from the NY Tristate area- we do NOT do well with that around here.

Still need to order moisturizer etc!! Can I just do it on line?


I keep telling Jim we need to slow down and adjust, but old habits die hard!

You can do it online! I will PM you with the link.


Looks like a fabulous NYE! It looks like DCL did it just right!

Oh, and you all looked great in the photos, too!

My favorite drink in Skyline. It is not on the menu on the Dream


Up on Deck, we found the Mcs!

It was fun bringing in the New Year with you!

New Years Eve on the Fantasy looks amazing! You have a beautiful family!

Last time we sailed we went to St Thomas and I absolutely love it there!

St. Thomas was beautiful. We didn't do a whole lot either. With the big day on St. Maarten and the late night, I knew we would not want to get up early to head out to an excursion. We rode the sky tram up to the top of the mountain and enjoyed the view and a Bushwacker.

Ummm...no you haven't. This is the Fantasy. It is different- we are all going to draw a person and then Disney is going to animate them to dance around the dining room.
I loved the animator show. So cool.

We have a beach excursion booked for our Grand Cayman stop this August, but honestly, I'm considering just canceling it and staying on the Fantasy that day. We've been there before and we will be doing a beach excursion in Cozumel and of, Castaway Cay. I think I would rather spend more time on ship, letting the kids ride Aquaduck without a wait.

Thanks so much!

It is very nice- if you can ever get over to St John, though, it is truly beautiful there. Not one traffic light on the whole island- it's mostly National Park- just gorgeous.

Awesome pic! It is very cool up there- I made an unexpected visit up there once myself, on the way to the airport via non-4 wheel drive taxi van. It was terrifying! But I got a pic too! Although not as good as yours-








I loved the animator show. So cool.
The day before was a really long day- we all felt the same way I think about booking an excursion for NY Day. Smart move.

If you love the ship, you will love doing that- especially in Grand Cayman, where you have to tender (such a PITA). If I ever find myself headed to GC again, it is probably what I will do- the first time we went, we got a boat (Eco-Outrage Tour- done privately). That was really fun, even in the rain- and the kids went tubing, which they really loved! But I think a nice quiet day onboard the Fantasy sounds pretty wonderful instead!

The Bushwacker's were amazing. So, good. In fact, could go for one of those right about now! lol. Ok, maybe after work.

We sat down to dinner and in front of us was placed a mat on which to draw our character. Pods was a party pooper and wouldn't draw- Timmy and Tyler created the most bizarre looking people, and then we handed them all in.



Tyler says this means something. I am a little afraid to know exactly what.



Since we had skipped Pirate's Night for Remy, this was our only night dining in Animator's. On the Fantasy, on show night in Animator's there is a set appetizer for everyone- but, when do you get the luscious truffle purses then?





Ali, our Head Server, came over to the table. Before I could ask about the truffle purses, he gave us the news that Edward would not be serving us this evening, he had gotten injured last night (at the Crew's NYE party). He was ok, but in bed- a sprained ankle or knee or something. Poor edward! We were really bummed we would not be seeing his sparkly smile anymore during our cruise- instead, we would have Ali as our main Server this evening. When I asked what night the truffle purses were if not tonight, Ali said they weren't being served. NOOO!!!!!! They are my FAVORITE, and considering I finally GOT a clue by this cruise and ......OOPS! Lost track of time! Back later to finish!!

I am having so much fun reading along. I sure do wish I could go back NOW! By the end of our cruise, we were kinda over the organized dinner thing, so we opted to skip our night in Animators. I'm sorry we missed the animation though. I guess that gives us a reason to go back! Although I think we'll do late dining for the next one. We felt that the early time was LOUD (or maybe I'm just getting old and crotchety).

NYE was so fun . . . I was just about blown away by the wind up on deck after the countdown though. Cary (DS16) came back to the room about 12:30 and asked if he could go back to Vibe for an hour so they could watch the New York countdown. I couldn't say no to that, and I just can't really sleep till he is back in the room. So it was a late night. I was pooped the next day!

OK - I must ask . . . what is a Bushwacker (sp?)???

I LOVE READING YOUR REPORTS!!! I cannot imagine a better place to celebrate the new year than on a Disney ship. How did you talk your family into all wearing black? The matching outfit color looks great in the photos!

Are you getting excited about Alaska? Do you have everything booked? Did you buy anything special for a "cold" cruise? Are you going over early to spend time in Vancouver? Opps, I should be talking about your New Year's eve cruise and not Alaska.
