    I didn't know that. I thought because coffee/tea had a cost at the cafe that the desserts would as well. :thumbsup2 Good to know... not that we were starving or anything... :rolleyes1

    I had read a trip report of either the Magic or Dream and someone was talking about chicken wings... and I thought, "We never saw a chicken wing!" too funny that's all I can say.

    Case, thanks for your awesome report, food porn and sharing your special moments. DH also went through a similar medical scare this fall and it truly does change your life and make you grateful for every moment. We are so looking forward to our "DREAM" cruise and sunrises and sunsets on our veranda with each other! You are making the planning so much more fun!

    I don't know if your question has been answered but the kids can order any food off the "adult" menu. I have two girls 9 and 11. They were 4 and 6 when they went on our first DCL Cruise. We have done 2 DCL Cruises, my girls have yet to order off the kid's menu! THEY WANT STEAK!

    Thanks! :goodvibes Feel free to add your comments/opinions too!!

    I've only ever done 7-day cruises so the 4-day went by so fast for me but it was good....long enough to get the experience and take photos and then get back to my family! :woohoo:

    You're welcome :) When on vacation, we always try to do things against the flow...go left instead of right....eat earlier or later than most...it just works best for us :thumbsup2

    I only do the breakfast buffet...just because it's usually pretty good and my fave meal is breakfast and I never eat it at home...usually just have a fruit smoothie so when I am on vacation, I splurge a little ;)

    Thanks Liz! Glad my trippie can help you with your vacation! It's why I post trippies...they help a lot of people! :goodvibes Glad you came out of lurkdom!

    June is not too far away!!! :yay:

    [​IMG]

    :blush:


    Yeah, I wouldn't want someone fixing my taco either...this lady was mad they weren't! LOL! To each their own I guess!

    It all starts with the navigator :goodvibes


    You can post them wherever you like MJ! Can't wait to see them! [​IMG]

    :lmao:


    I know a few people who love those babies!! ;)

    Feel better soon!!!! :hug:



    Yeah, lots of seafood for sure [​IMG]

    Well, I am a detail kind of girl :thumbsup2 Yup, those pics are coming up....eventually :rolleyes1

    Thanks for reading :goodvibes

    Great TR as always! I think it is amazing that you got up early every morning to take sunrise photos. The ship must have been so quiet then. What a perfect time to just stare out into the horizon and contemplate life. I admire you for that and would love to see some of those pics. :love: You're awesome Cass! :hug:

    Yeah, no kidding eh! :rolleyes:

    Yup, all free! They are in the cabinet in Cove Cafe...just have to ask for them! I brought back 2 for me and 2 for Michelle but she didn't want them so I ate all four :rolleyes1

    I take photos of what I would want to see ::yes:: As for the iPad, it happens all the time....sometimes photos just don't show up...even if they aren't in flash! Funny cus Rob asked me the same thing last night...he was reading my trippie and told me that something was wrong with my photos but I knew it was just the ipad :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I was thinking that exact same thing....and then you throw in some onion on top of that?????? :eek: No thanks!

    I didn't see it personally but I know on DCL that an adult can order a child's meal and a child can order an adult meal so no worries there!!! :thumbsup2

    Cove Cafe....$5 each :rolleyes1 Just kidding....they are free :thumbsup2

    Thanks Jeff :goodvibes

    Thanks Joanne :hug:

    Thanks! :upsidedow

    Thanks! And yes, we had a pull down bed in the ceiling and I was going to ask our room host, Clifford, to pull it down one night but the inside room we saw already had it down so I didn't bother Clifford ;)

    Just walking around that huge ship will burn off all extra calories :laughing:

    Like I said, a cruise is very personal and depends on what happens on your cruise! Everyone is different and some like to focus on the bad and some like to focus on the good! Your cruise is what YOU make it! :thumbsup2

    Love it when people keep their promises! ::yes::

    Awwwww.....such wonderful words from such a wonderful guy!! :hug:

    You mean the different pods? No, unless the chefs contaminate them behind the scenes, there shouldn't be any cross from other pods by the guests. I can't even imagine how tough it is for you guys to travel!! :hug:

    :lmao:


    That would be fabulous if they sold it in stores now!!! I would have to bring a whole bottle on the Fantasy for my next cruise :rotfl2:

    Thanks for the info :thumbsup2

    Yeah, they were great! :cool2:

    :eek:


    Totally! :thumbsup2

    Case? bahahahahah....never been called that one before :rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    Sorry to hear about your hubby but yeah it really does change your life....good and bad!

    I wonder why the don't just put a chair in this spot?

    [​IMG]

    I know the bunk is above there, but you think it would still fit OK. Or even another of the vanity/desk charis. It just seems like the room isn't 'finished' with that empty space. :rotfl:

    isn't that one of the accessible rooms? maybe they are keeping the space for a wheel chair?

    MJ,

    How close was the edge of the pull down bed from the edge of the main bed? Is there enough room that you don't feel like you'd hit your head if it were down?

    Also, based on the TV location and the sofa, is it even possible to see the TV from the sofa?

    Thanks for the pics.

    great pictures of Palo.

    Am i wrong in assuming that if you're a party of 2 you won't get a seat by the window - they all look like they are set for 4.

    we loved that we were seated by the window when we ate there (on the wonder) during our first cruise. they actually had us wait (we didnt know why) until there was a table open just so we could sit by the window. it was wonderful.


    also

    how on earth did you get all your pictures without people (or 99% without). it's amazing just how empty the ship looks yet you were at sea and i'm sure you weren't sailing alone ;) though imagine that lol

    Ooooooh , love the look of the new Palo:banana:... do I choose brunch or dinner:confused:

    I dont see blue cheese and grape pizza on there:scared1:

    Oh dear lordy I hope its still available... thats worth the $20 on its own.


    By the way, jsut wanted to say:thanks: for giving us such detail Cass. Must have taken up almost your whole cruise taking all these piccies, just wanted you to know we all appreciate it:thumbsup2

    Before I go...a few replies to posts....



    There were chicken wings at The District every night on the Dream...and I bet the wings on the Magic were also in the adult clubs :thumbsup2

    Yup, except the last morning...I saw every sunrise! I was too tired by the last day... only got about 4-5 hours of sleep every night since I got to WDW on the 27th :rolleyes: You feeling any better Heather?

    Those are fantastic MJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cool1::thumbsup2 I will post a link to them in the index when I have more time! Thanks for posting them...I also have questions for you :lmao: :goodvibes

    Thanks Karen :hug:

    They have the Heinz Honey Mustard which was GROSS :crazy2: They also had another sauce...think it also was a honey mustard or something but it tasted like relish soup!!! :sad2:

    We ate at Palo and had the very last seat along the window...it was just the two of us...more on that later :thumbsup2


    I have mastered the art of quick photography....that and I try to go against the crowds :rolleyes1 ;)

    Great pics of Palo Cass. It looks even more elegant than it did before.

    Really like the large round table in the separate room. We had the rectangular one once and it was hard to talk to the people on the other end. It is much better to be at a round.
