I know, right?! I've seen many people post panic attack. I'd say most are humble if nothing else. This was not the vibe I was getting.

Beautiful pics of the boat. It looks like a simply amazing afternoon and I'm glad that you, Pam, Joshua, and Ellie look like you are having a fab time!!!!!

I love you for admitting you like the drama! Ive got pretty mixed signals about posting it. Thank you. It was part of our cruise certainly not the focus but people enjoy train wrecks. I mean who wants to focus on escargot when you've got this?

The afternoon/evening was fabulous. Such a great time. I really love the freedom the ship gave Joshua.

table mate dram is always interesting. I had some on my last cruise too way back in 2008. I was in a group of people I know from another message board. Some things worked out well others not so well. There were some problems with the arrangement of the tables the first night because of some problems with shore side, apparently the shore side dinning manager quit after another group got to demanding or something like that. The serving team had some problems the first night, but then when don’t they on the first night really. Some of the people at the table I was at got really annoying with special requests they were making things like Cheese from Palo every night at the start of dinner and with desert, crème brules every night for two people, chicken wings that they used to have on the parrot cay menu every night, banana bread every night. The head server one night had to go all the way across the ship one night to get some chicken wings form the sports bar. After all this you would except these people to be grateful, well one night the head server came over to find out how things were going and they just about dragged her and the serving team over the coals, I wanted to crawl under the table after that and hide. The next night since there was an extra seat at one of our other table’s because someone was having some family issues, I joined them, for the rest of the cruise. Also two of the people reduced the tip they had prepaid by half, so when the rest of us found out about that we all over tipped by a lot to make up for them.

The last couple of nights were fine as some of the real problems at that table had Palo reservations the last two nights.

I just found this TR and am enjoying it. My 11 yo DS and I are going on the Wonder in Nov with this same itinerary. I was nervous about how he would be with it just being him and mom and no sisters or dad but I feel a lot better about that now! Both sisters are in college and DH doesn't travel so I just decided why not go anyway while DS is young. Thank you!

Tablemate drama is a trip. Thankfully their drama wasn't aimed at us, if anything they were very nice, just totally messed up. Our server was beyond kind with them, wrapping food to go etc....he was very respectful and kept his mouth shut with regard to any opinions even when one was obviously totally hammered.

Yours sounds terrible and embarrassing! I'm glad you got to move and didn't have to endure every meal with them. I would be mortified sitting with people that reduced the tip. That was very cool of the rest of you to make up for the reduced tip.

and for joining in. My son had a total blast. He never really loved the kids club but made it work for him. It was a great trip, the perfect blend of mother/son and friend time. I'd do a cruise just he and I again in a heartbeat.

We really enjoyed the itinerary. Both Cozumel and CC were beautiful.

yeah it was cool of us to up our tips for them as none of us had any problems with them at all. Just the few poel that seemed to take the attitude that I'm paying for this and I want to have extra special service.

One can only imagine AC would not have passed a breath test after that fall lol...or worse a blood test!

How nice that Joshua found a friend :-)

I love that lamp in the room also. I am glad we have different plug system in UK I don't trust myself it would stay lol..I love the cushions also but they were quite pricey to buy something like $300!

Hope you enjoy dinner and funnel vision. I wonder what state your tablemates will arrive in....

I still have my heart set on the Eastbound Transatlantic next year, but the prices have gone crazy and I doubt that even if there will be some discounted rates after the final payment date that they will be within my budget. Plan B is a Florida roadtrip with a little taster cruise on the Dream. In December we are then planning a seven night cruise on the Wonder out of Galveston plus a week or so at Walt Disney World.

I watched AC attack cast members during the episode. She was swinging at her significant other. She punched a cast member before they actually got her physically restrained. She was screaming and flailing. Not like any panic attack that I've seen. More like a psychotic episode. It didn't even look like a drunk episode. It was like she just blinked. Then when we were at Castaway my DH noticed that they had a cast member escorting them everywhere. Sort of like a reverse body guard. He even rode the tram with them.

Thats good. Prolonged table mate issues wouldn't be any fun.

Quite a state. See Beth's post below.

Plan B looks good to me. The best of both worlds!

Oh Beth, this is so crazy to read from your POV. Like I said, if we weren't there, I'm not sure I'd believe it.

I am so sorry friends for the ridiculously inexcusable delay.

As Beth mentioned she saw the whole drama take place between our tablemates.

From Beth: I watched AC attack cast members during the episode. She was swinging at her significant other. She punched a cast member before they actually got her physically restrained. She was screaming and flailing. Not like any panic attack that I've seen. More like a psychotic episode. It didn't even look like a drunk episode. It was like she just blinked.

Now I don't know about you all but I have NO clue what in the world AC was thinking or how intoxicated she must have been to PUNCH a Disney CM! Even if she was going for ACSO, she punch a Disney CM. OMG on so many levels.

Beth told us this when we arrived at dinner too. Pam, Joshua, and I arrived before our tablemates. Tonight’s dinner was Trition’s and I was way excited! We had it for lunch earlier in the cruise but this was our only scheduled dinner here. It’s such a lovely restaurant.

We arrived at Triton’s and our sweet servers were ready for us. Joshua ordered a Mango smoothie:



My hot tea was waiting for me and while it was cooling we took a little selfie. Weird I know.



Isn’t the ceiling just gorgeous?



My tea and some bread that I had clearly dug into:



Pam ordered her diet Coke and finally our tablemates showed up…..well 3/5 showed up. AC and ACSO did not. The tween wanted to sit by Pam and the parent seemed not at all happy with this. I am not sure why. Very strange but she did sit by Pam.

Now we had a good feeling that AC and ACSO were not going to show for dimner especially after what Beth had told us so when parent was explaining that AC was upset her but she wasn’t sure why, we didn’t chime in. As a parent she must have been mortified and scared and angry and hurt. We were not about to add insult to injury. We made chit chat with the table and it was pleasant. The funny thing about parent was that she was very likable, bonkers, but likeable especially during a 5 night cruise. Not sure I would have her in my daily life but she was very nice to us.

Arjay and Ozzy were on their game as usual. I really enjoyed their service. I don’t have a copy of the menu but I’m hoping Pam does. Our orders were taken and friend of tween ordered chicken fingers again and Arjay made this super cute ketchup Hidden Mickey:



By this time they were all use to our food porn picture taking and would offer their plates up. See what I mean; super nice and fun but crazy interpersonal family dynamics.

Our food started to come out. Joshua and I had to share the escargot.



I am glad we didn’t get out own as it was very rich; delicious but rich. I think we left 3 of the little fellas.

According to the photos, Joshua and I both ordered lamb chops. There was a mixed grill dish on the menu but we only wanted the chops. Ozzy took good care of this request:





For dessert I finally tried the strawberry sundae Pam had been raving about and she was right; it was SO good!



Joshua got the crème brulee and licked the plate clean.



I found the dinner company and conversation very enjoyable and the food was fantastic!. AC and ACSO never did show up and I believe Ozzy wrapped them food to go. At this point we didn’t know AC was ON ROOM ARREST!!!!!! But we would come to find out later on deck while chatting with parent.

ROOM ARREST on a Disney Cruise! Can you imagine????

Back to our evening……Joshua wanted to do a little shopping for his sisters and DH so we went to the room to change and found this little cutie:



After a quick change we went down to shop. On the way we saw this most wonderful print:



We ended up buying a DCL coffee mug for Michael, some treats for the girls, and a pin each. Joshua said that between Pam spoiling him rotten and all the FE he was more than happy with his souvenirs. Love that kid!

I did take some pics of the shop:

















I really enjoyed the details in this shop.

They were closing so we didn’t make it in time to browse in the shop across the hall but I did take a photo of the souvenir I’d love most next cruise:



I have always loved D&B bags so add a Disney design and I’m sold. Here the bgger version:




Joshua had plans to meet back up with his posse and I wanted to relax on deck. On the way I did get a drive by of the main female Mouse. She was cute enough to wave. Sorry for the blurry shot.



Up next: Pam’s details, therapy on the deck, and CC!!!!

To be continued…..

Right! Room arrest! I cannot even imagine what that looks like. I don't want to get too much ahead of myself but did you know, room arrest isn't a free service? You get charged!


Thanks for still reading and posting.

Room arrest? Wow. Just wow.

I don't even know where to start. I guess AC shouldn't have assaulted a CM.
