We took the boat to DHS. I wanted to walk but I'm glad we didn't. It was soooo hot!

Awesome! we'll miss you by two cruises, doing the May 16 Western. Exactly right, it's a Disney cruise! I don't care where we're going as long as I'm onboard!

Gal, I'm so behind.

AP looks amazing on the ship. Wow, it's so different than one on the Wonder.I love that you got the baked potato, sorry it wasn't as good as the Wonder's.

Your mom and I enjoy our Mickey bars. Was the cookie sundae as good as the strawberry?

Great pic of you and your cute mom!

Both restaurants are beautiful and unique. Really no way to compare the two.

Oh, I had a strawberry one later in the cruise! But the cookie one was also quite delicious. I've found all the sundaes offered are quite scrumptious

Indeed about the Mickey Bars!

Dinner at AP looks super yummy! Those truffles. That tomato pie or tart or whatever it was. YUM!

So glad you were able to surprise your mom with the Remy dinner. A little bit of a surprise is always good. I can't wait to see what you both ended up having for dinner.

Bummer about the movie channel, or lack there of.

I can't wait someday to try those pursettes! Everyone talks about them, I hope that they have them on the Wonder because we have a lot of Wonder cruises coming up. If not at least on the Dream since we have one of those booked!

I'm glad that your mother was happy about the advance warning for Remy and that you both hopefully enjoyed your time there.

Yes they do keep a dossier on all the guests, but it's very possible that your servers either don't read them or think that they must be mistaken because why would people not drink alcohol on a cruise or eat red meat. Most of these people come from other countries where customs are so different they just might not really "get it" and think that they can be the one to change you.

They definitely look at profiles when choosing tablemates and other things like that. How you got paired up with that group on the cruise with Jenny, I'll never know!

They are definitely on the Wonder. I had them on our Panama Canal cruise. I am getting myself all confused again. I am about 2.5 installments ahead as far a writing my trip report is concerned so I sometimes think that I have posted something that I have not at that point.

When you said 11 months I was hoping we might be on the same one. HA! No way jose! It took me a good three weeks back to get this one started.

The porthole was great. The size of the room was awesome. Mom says she's fine with just a porthole and that's better for my wallet.
So you didn't feel closed off with no balcony?

I saw Corinna answered this, they're definitely on the Wonder.

Probably so. They look at it and think 'this must be wrong'

I'm thinking brcause of Josh's age being similar to the younger tablemates. Quite the story to share though, they aren't forgettable!

Not in the least. We've done two cruises with balconies, 1 cruise in an inside, and this was mom's first time with a porthole, my second. We liked all of them, including the inside. I actually prefer not having a balcony, only because it forces us out of the room. We felt guilty leaving the balcony. This way we are out enjoying the ship more.

Sunday, May 11. Day at Sea and Motherís Day


Today was a day at sea so we didnít set any alarms and slept in. Mom woke up at 8:30 and me at 9:07. She unpacked until I woke up and then showered. Then I unpacked and put our magnets up. Mom was in desperate need for coffee so went up to Deck 11 while I got ready. I went to find her when I was ready. During our unpacking I had quite the moment of panic. I couldnít find my ipad anywhere. The last time I had seen it was in the Solarium at the BC. Richard had been so chatty, was it a possibility that I left it behind? A slew of Ďwhat to dosí went through my mind. Should we call BC to see if anyone had turned it in. what if they didnít, then what would I do? Mom calmly asked me if I had put it in the safe the night before. Now that could be! I immediately went to check and it was safely tucked away in the safe. Whew! I must have been quite tired to have forgotten, it was very unlike me.

When I met mom upstairs we headed to Cabanas for breakfast.









We went to eat outside. My plates are closest, momís opposite. French toast and a raspberry donut for me. For mom an omelet, fruit, mango yogurt, a chocolate donut, and a piece of French toast.



After our very delicious breakfast we went down to guest services to apply some giftcards. We also got an extra Navigator and planned our attack of the day. There was a 3:30 showing of Bears in the Buena Vista Theater that caught our eye. It was only 11:09 at the time so we decided to head up to Satellite Falls and enjoy the gorgeous weather.







It was super windy so I left mom enjoying the sun and found shelter by the protective wall.



I wrote in my journal for a good two hours and finally caught up. At some point they played all 7 of the shipís horns. Hearing those horns is such a magical thing.

When I was caught up in the journal I felt the need to go to Remy and confirm momís vegetarian meal and ask them about my requirements. I let mom know where I was going and saw two of our tablemates enjoying the water. We chatted a bit, they had been to Palo brunch that morning for Motherís Day. Oh Palo brunch, how I missed you this trip!

I took some pictures on the way to Remy



















The only time you really feel the amount of people on the ship is on sea days










At Remy I talked to the lady at the podium about our reservation. She said momís meal was already noted as vegetarian, excellent, and I asked if it was necessary to note my different requirements. She said it was always helpful to note anything from the ordinary and happily put that Iím allergic to crab and donít eat red meat or poultry.

With my mind at ease I went back and found mom. She had had enough sun and we went in search of some food. We started at the Quiet Cove Cafť and got some treats.

The one on the left was a macadamia nut/caramel poundcake which mom had, and I had a chocolate chip/brownie cookie. Both of these were fabulous!
