    The dream was just that and more!
    Totally amazing ship, exceptional service and the weather was spectacular.

    Castaway Cay was a dream.

    We are ready to go back now - since it has not stopped raining here since we left - UGH

    Just read somewhere you can request WARM cookies from room service.
    IDK, cause I haven't tried yet, but wouldn't that rock?

    The warm cookies are not that good but the Mickey bars are awesome! My DD would have them for dessert at dinner, then we would get more from room service before bed.

    I think we ate six oatmeal raisin cookies each every night. I can also suggest the hot dog and the Caesar salad.

    Our room was right below the 24 hr. soft serve machine, so we had our fill of that, too. TIP: use the bigger cups at the drink station for your soft-serve, instead of the tiny ice-cream cups. Use it in combination with the soda machines for floats.

    DH didn't realized that there was chocolate syrup next to the soft-serve until day 8. You might even be able to get cherries from the bar next to the pool for a sundae. Did I mention I gained 8 lbs. on our 10 nt. adventure?

    Just back from the Eastbound Transatlantic on the Magic and found this information from a galley tour that they were doing.

    If you especially like any of the food your head server will get you the recipe for it - just ask.

    I got the one for white chocolate pana cotta as it was yummy, although you will have to change the portions as this one starts with 15 litres of heavy cream, 3kgs of sugar........

    I can't remember seeing this before :)

    My husband LOVED banana flanbe when we sailed in 2008 and when he asked the waiter about how much he loved the dessert, the chef personally came to the table and told him the recipe (as he was writing it on a paper). So don't be afraid to ask for the recipes that you like!!

    As far as Youth Activities- for tipping, cash must be turned into proper management. These tips go into crew parties & gifts etc. Calling cards home will always be well received. Please please please triple check the countries the cards are able to call to. A lot of US international phone cards are only for Canada & Mexico. Aim for Australia, Europe, African countries & Caribbean islands as well.
