We were in the thick of the storm and rolling like there's no tomorrow. We had an outside cabin,with a beautiful big window,just the third cabin from the bow of the ship. We were WAY up front. Normally, I'd have to go to the window to see if we were still moving or docked, the ride was always that smooth-but today,whoa,stuff is flying off the dresser and the curtains are swaying like there's a wind blowing through here. It's not as much fun anymore and my balance is affected. Between the rolling of the ship and the rolling of my inner ear, I'm walking like some cartoon character. I meet up with my friend Erica, and we decide to go to Upbeat and check out some perfume prices,as I never had a chance to go shopping in the ports. She mentioned that there was either a slippery spot or the rug wasn't in place and she fell off the gangplank the day before,while getting back on ship. She had just finished up her meds from a recent back injury and was now in pain again. I told her we'd take her now empty bottle of meds down to the doctor and see what he could give her. While waiting for her, I spoke to another med assistant who said these were the roughest waters she had encountered in a loooooong time. There was a steady flow of people picking up seasick meds from the counter. After Erica emerged, she told me that I had to stand there until I saw the doctor. She said he was GORGEOUS. After a minute, I caught a glimpse and asked Erica to slam the door on my arm, so I could spend some time with him also. I figured DH is still rolling around the ship somewhere, cradling his precious ship model, what's he gonna know-after all, it is my vacation too.We decided to change for dinner instead, but think of a way to make a visit here again. Soon. It was the formal Captains dinner night. We were in Parrot Cay. It was a liitle odd to see people so dressed up in a tropical setting. More people showed up than I expected. The weather report on TV said there were 20 ft. waves and near gale force winds. It was rumored that the captain didn't show up for dinner because he was keeping an eye on things on the bridge. The waiters did a splendid job carrying trays and food when only one foot was able to find the floor every few seconds. We were going from side to side. I ordered lobster tails, as everyone else did, and it's so sweet to see the waiter move around the table removing the tail from the shell.I eat lobsters whole. I suck on the legs,eat the chunks of meat behind the gills and even eat the green stuff on a dare. Here was some one removing my tail meat for me. I felt so taken care of. But I was also feeling not real well. I thought it might be the industrial strength pantyhose and "bodyshaper" I was wearing, so my stomach doesn't enter a room 5 seconds before the rest of me. I excused myself and said I'd be right back. Well, not really,as it turned out. I did feel better removing all that body armour, but I was definitely sea sick for the first time in my life.I felt much better after a few minutes in the bathroom which no one really needs details on, and met up with DS(who felt fine) and DH(who felt fine) , in the Walt Disney Theater for the Disney Dreams show. Everyone was talking about how on earth are they going to perform when the ship is rocking so bad, it's difficult just to walk normally. Perform on a stage? This we gotta see.Well, every step they took, it was as if their feet were glued to the floor. When a misstep occurred,you could see them incorporate it into their routine. Very professional. Very seasoned performers. VERY impressive. I think the standing ovation they received was as much for the balancing technique as it was for the show itself,which was stupendous! Yes, I got teary-eyed-AGAIN. What a wonderful show. I would keep comparing everything I saw with my past cruises and DCL just keeps winning,the others aren't even in competition. They were good shows on RCL, but they were the kind of shows people expect to get on a ship. Good, but predictable. Las Vegas type of shows. Even the magic show had the Disney touch. They just seem to go that extra step,not enough to be over the top or excessive, but different in a classy way. Way to go!!! DS asked to change and go back to the lab-so DH, Erica and I went "bar hopping" for the couple of hours. It was really neat to go from one room, with it's own type of atmosphere, to another,with a completely different feeling.It was fun to watch people trying to be cool as they attempted to walk or drink on a rocking,rolling ship. Was the ship movement, in and of itself, bad? Yes. Was dealing with it so bad? No not really. Did my bathroom and I become one for a period of time? Sure.I bonded with some porcelin. But one day out of seven? Can't complain. Just chalk it up to another moment of magic. The Captain and crew did a magnificent job under the circumstances. What more could you ask?On to Castaway Cay!!!
