    Just catching up tonight and wow Cass, as always, an absolutely awesome report. You seem to know exactly what people need to see. Ok question, I'm looking from my IPad, do you have any idea why I see several pictures at a time and then all of a sudden there will be a bunch with a question mark inside a blue box? Ugh, it's so frustrating, I don't want to miss one single picture of yours!

    Oh My Gosh! Thank you so much for the wonderful pics and loads of helpful info! You are wonderful to devote so much time and energy to this report. My family is super excited about our first cruise ever on FEB 27th. I was wondering if you noticed if any children received adult entrees. My 5 year old will eat chicken fingers all week :) but, my 8 yo DS loves all seafood and would prefer (and devour) choices from the adults' entrees. Also, do you have any suggestions on a good location to catch the deck parties? Thank you so much and many wishes for good health and success with your new venture.

    Hi Jeff, I am so jealous of you guys!! These new ships will have to wait a few years for us. Doing Alaska in August!!!

    You could try it just to say you did. It was very weird, but other people at our table liked it.

    Wow, I love your trip report, and ESPECIALLY the food porn :thumbsup2 - thanks so much for taking the time & effort to share it with us. :goodvibes And I appreciate you sharing about how much you value each breath. I'm glad you're doing better now! I'll join in on all the hugs you're getting. :grouphug: :flower3:

    I think I'm booked for a room much like yours, 5A, 9th deck, more forward than aft - did you guys have the pull-down bed from the ceiling? I'm guessing not, or surely there'd be a picture ;) :rotfl:

    I was feeling pretty depressed about our May 1st cruise on the Dream until I read your report and saw all the pictures. All the "bad" reviews are pretty depressing. Thank you so much for the details and especially for the pictures of everything! I am packing for three kids and seeing so much of the rooms really helped. I am hoping to see your Castaway Cay pics and any others you took. Thank you, thank you.

    Glad to see the chocolate chip cookies at Flo's. A word from a DISer to the correct "man in white" on the maiden voyage made some magically appear that day and a promise was made that they they would be there from then on. Looks like that promise was kept! :thumbsup2

    I want that book but I aint got 500 points. They keep putting up DCL cruises as sweepstakes prizes and I keep entering. (I did get those plane tickets once)

    Actually about 167 twenty ounce Diet Coke breaks! :rotfl2:

    Cass, I'm so glad that you were there to enjoy all of that. Life has a way of sneaking by us and we don't really notice it until it becomes dear. There has been a number of times when I walk out of the ER and shuck off the hardened shell that I wear to cope with what I do and then take a deep breath of the fresh air and thank God that I can do that one simple thing. I enjoy feeling every bit of that breath and then look about at the world before I go on with the rest of my day. Your trip report is great. I enjoy the way you look at things, I can hear it with your words and see it with your camera lens.

    Another amazing read Cass.... cant wait for the next installment.

    I have one question if you dont mind... I noticed walnuts and pecans on one of the lines (I think brekkie) was it close to the rest of the food cabinets? - could there be cross contamination with other stuff that is NOT in that cabinet? or are the cabinets totally seperate so the serving spoons wouldnt "travel" from one cabinet to the next? We can easily avoid that cabinet but am nervous re people dipping in and out of food with the same spoons.. does that make any sense at all!:confused3:lmao:

    Great to know they still have the Turkey/Cranberry sandwiches :thumbsup2but did I somehow miss those Mickey waffles??

    And Cass, since Disney isn't selling your honey mustard maybe we'll be able to find it in the stores now! :goodvibes

    Great pictures kiddo. Can't wait for that Fantasy cruise next year. :hug:

    My daughter is a chef, she was talking to the head chef of Cabana's and he told them that there are no Mickey Waffles because they only put in 2 plugs and they need at least 12 for a ship this size. He also said that there are no waffles because there is no ventilation in the area. They tried to have waffles on the maiden voyage and it was a disaster.

    There were a couple of different pictures with CM's in them that seemed to pose for you! That was too cute!:woohoo: The one with the lady that was holding a chip or something out to you was my favorite.

    The chocolate covered strawberries are free. When you are at the Cove Cafe you have to ask for them but anything in the case is free. In the morning pastries and later dessert which includes your strawberries. It was self service at the cafe area outside Shutters, my daughter and I saw a man taking a plate full and it was not a small plate, before we left the area, we saw him come back for more.
