    After lunch we headed out for some more exploring. The spa had an open house so we headed that way.

    Couldn't wait to eat here

    sorry this is blurry but he kept moving around

    I couldn't get enough of this chandelier. I like it even more than the one on the Dream, it just reminds me of the ocean.

    The club area

    this area was so cute!

    we wanted to get back here at night but it never happened

    I love all the wonderful details!

    I really wanted to get back here, it looked so cool. No photos inside, concierge guests only at the moment.

    the hallway into the bathroom was even done up

    We'd be coming back for the member celebration at 2:30

    Great pictures Pam! I love how you can just wonder around the boat during the day and take pictures of everything and anything. So many wonderful places to explore.

    So how many memory cards am I going to have to bring with me next October? I prefer the 4GB over the 8GB because they just seem harder to upload (although I have a new computer so it probably shouldn't matter). I am thinking I will probably need at least 8 - 4GB. :faint:

    Looking forward to more. I agree - the chandelier is so cool!

    That is great news. I love the hot tub by the Mariposa pool. It is huge.

    We took the elevator up to the spa and took the guided tour. There were several CMs standing around the entrance and were ready for any group that came along. We were shown each and every treatment room where each CM told us how important their treatment was and if we did any treatment onboard we should do the one they offer... I found myself agreeing to everybody. :rotfl:

    The magnificent Rainforest Room. Sorry some of these pictures are off, low light and steam make for tricky photos.

    heated tile loungers

    [​IMG]

    there were three different showers with different water temperature and water flow

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ahhh, the Gentle Sauna Room, one of our favorite spots on the whole ship :cloud9:

    [​IMG]

    We happily bought a cruise length pass for the Rainforest Room. Our guide said they only sell 30 and they sell fast so we should get it right then. We knew we already wanted the cruise length pass so we jumped on it. Not sure that they sold 30 that cruise because several times we were the only people in there. The pass for 2 was $144. I thought that was a little excessive since the day pass we bought on the Dream was $15 each. I guess not that excessive since for four days that would have added up to $120 for 2 people. Corinna, what do you usually pay for the cruise length pass?

    continuing the tour, some pictures of the gym.

    We never got to the gym....

    The couples villa. I didn't get a picture of the hot tub and lounge chairs out on the veranda but it looked like a nice retreat.

    At the end of the tour they had us fill out raffle tickets and we had to be there to win. They would be drawing at 3:15. We then raced down to Diversions for the DVC Member Celebration that started at 2:30.

    That seems a bit much for a five night cruise. I think this is what we normally pay for a 7 night cruise.

    Everything is just so gorgeous! It was exactly the feeling as last year on the Dream, I couldn't believe how beautiful and fun everything was. I was on stimulation overload for sure!

    :rotfl: I had 3 8GB cards in the suitcase and had to stop myself from taking photos and just sit down and relax. I only took 600 on this trip so barely put a dent in one of the cards.

    More to come. I have to go to a birthday party now but hopefully will get one more update in this evening.

    I'm so excited. This will be my first time out to DL.

    That's what I thought I remembered you saying. No regrets since it was so wonderful, and I would happily pay that again. But I still wanted to check with you.

    Cool! What are your dates again?

    I'm loving your pictures. Bringing back memories of our cruise in December.

    9/3-9/9. Even though its been planned for a while it feels much more secure now that I have the room. I need to start reading up on DL!

    Thanks! :)

    I'm so missing that ship right now. I LOVED the spa on the Wonder! I really regret not getting the rainforest passes. :headache:

    The whole cruise I wished I had signed up for a bamboo massage. That's on the list for March, I'm not going to make the same mistake twice. You must get them next time, it is so relaxing in there :cloud9: I'll definitely be getting the Rainforest passes again.

    I'm glad you got the room! I'll have to put that in my phone so I don't forget. I'll be out there at the DLR quite a bit in that one month period. Between the D23 Expo, Ellen's trip, your trip and PIO's trip, I'll be visiting a bunch!
