    Nice start! We tried to clean up after we left the Magic the morning you boarded.

    Interesting you selected using Wordpress for your Travelblog as well. I have enjoyed using it. If you haven't tried this yet, I suggest using Live Writer 2011 (free download from Microsoft). It's significantly better and easier than the Wordpress editor.

    I started ours a couple days before we left and we spent a few days in Barcelona before we boarded the Magic ...then without any network services to speak of, I've been catching up since...
    Were up to Naples as of this writing (half of it anyway)

    Here's the Blogspace: http://witw2011.wordpress.com/

    And the DISBoard posting: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2738882

    It'll be interesting to see the differences and similarities!

    Look forward!

    Enjoying your TR. I used to do a lot of things by myself, but I don't think I would cruise alone.

    We were on the same dining rotation but we were at Table 5! You didn't happen to see the commotion on the last night in Parrot Cay, did you?

    Ahahah! That I did, in fact I took a couple of people around Paris today who were seated right next to the table where there was the commotion!

    Apparently the kid hit his own sister while the mother was off getting security (for her own son!!) to escort him from the room. Pretty insane stuff for Disney!!

    Haha... ok. Somebody had said that a guest had hit another guest so I guess that was technically correct. We all thought somebody had wailed on a guest at another table. We heard shouting and then saw head servers running to the other side of the restaurant and our own servers looking at each other and shrugging. LOL

    I think I would have preferred your excursion over ours. We squeezed in Capri into it and I think our time in Pompeii and Sorrento suffered and I really wanted to see more of Pompeii. I heard about that horn battle ... I was in the shower getting ready for dinner when my brother came and told me of the horn battle. Drats!!

    BTW, the aircraft carrier was the George Bush and the destroyer was the Gettysberg.

    This was an excellent report!
    I just finished posting our report from the prior cruise for this same excursion (I am quite far behind obviously) It rained all day that day so it was rather a different excursion ;)

    It's really facinating to see this from a different perspective, thanks for sharing!
