    :rotfl2: That's the kind of picture that Denny would take if I asked for a picture in FRONT on the ship.

    I love the picture between the two ships - cool!

    Ah - pomegranate tequila. I never knew there was such a thing. I would love to try that. That's gonna be my first Ditch drink in May. I love liquor stores - I think all the bottles are so pretty!

    The beach and pool look so amazing. Perfect pictures to look at this time of year.

    Cool snow pics!

    Have fun in St J's!

    The Ritas were good- made with lime juice, not a super sweet mix (which I HATE!!) but they were not very strong. Which was probably a good thing when you were drinking them all day, hanging with your kids! ;)

    And that stag really looked comfy in the snow, like he was snuggled in a big, white blankie!


    It was a really great group of people- I think it's so cool so many of you are cruising together again!!

    Looks like a fruitful shopping trip. Did Pods get his shirts?

    Hi Bill!! It has been sooooo c-c-c-c-c-cold this week!! I've been spending plenty of time looking at STJ pics in preparation for our upcoming trip next week!! :cool1:

    Pods is a very good CPA. Anything artistic (like matching his socks)? Not so much...:lmao:

    What a great job!! You must have a DAZZLING personality (in addition to being THIN) to have gotten it. :thumbsup2 Lucky you!

    And I do really like Cozumel- I would love to go back!


    Poor Pods....he does make half an effort...:laughing:

    If you do ever see that pom tequila, I would HIGHLY recommend buying it- it's AWESOME!!

    And, thanks- I am REALLY looking forward to STJ!! One week from today!! :woohoo:

    He got one- shopping with him is a MISERABLE experience, the second it starts, you are praying for it to end...

    And the pic he took- I said to him, "Can you see the ship? Because it doesn't look like you are at the right angle..." He said , "Yea, I see the ship."

    I MEANT THROUGH THE CAMERA LENS, PODS!!!!! :sad2: :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    He might also like a Poma Sutra (it's a yummy cocktail they make at a restaurant called Happy Fish where I'll be next Tuesday in STJ)! ( Really it's Pama Sutra, but I don't think anyone minds!) :dogdance:

    As we got back on the ship, we noticed a LOT of people were hanging out on their balcomies, both on the Magic and on the Norwegian Dawn (HEY! That's the ship Pods & I had our unfortunate time-travel experience on!! If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and read my lengthy reply to Nenner1 about why I'll never use a cell phone to tell time aboard a ship again as long as I live! :rolleyes:). Anyway....after I had showered and gotten pirate-a-fied, I went out onto my balcony to watch us sailaway from Cozumel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well, I was out there alone (Pods was showering) and the very friendly passengers on the Dawn started yelling to me. How nice of them to keep me company....I was so lonely!! :rotfl2: "How's the ship? Do you like Disney? Where are you going next? WOOHOOOOOO!" You know- the typical conversation you have between balconies of opposite ships. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    They waved goodbye for a REALLY long time! Or maybe I was the one waving goodbye for a long time....something tells me I wasn't the only one who had a shot of tequila and a few Margaritas in Mexico, if ya know what I mean...:rolleyes1

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So long Mexico!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next we were off to dinner- tonight we were dining in Animator's again! Here is the bread, cuban rolls with the spread (is it pigeon peas?)

    [​IMG]

    Gabor, the Head Server, was still helping out our table on this night-

    [​IMG]

    Tyler tries to figure out tonight's mystery smoothie from Yadira-

    [​IMG]

    Both boys were wearing scarves from our FE- I am so sorry i can't remember who gave them, but we loved them! Thank-you!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Our appetizers came out in a decent amount of time. :thumbsup2Tyler had The Buccaneer’s Sun Ripened Pineapple
    Fresh Island Pineapple with a Coconut covered Banana and Orange Glaze

    [​IMG]

    Pods decided to try Pearls of the Caribbean
    Crabmeat, shrimp and salmon mixed in pearls of couscous with lemon grass infused vinaigrette-

    [​IMG]

    And i had Blackbeard’s Jumbo Crab Cake
    With a fruit Salsa and Honey-Lime Tropical Coleslaw

    [​IMG]

    It was all good, but nothing outstanding. Timmy was skipping the appetizer this evening, and went right to the main event, which is pretty self-explanatory.

    [​IMG]

    I believe Pods also ordered a salad-Mr Smee’s Bib Lettuce Salad
    With Bibb Lettuce, Baby Greens, Chicory, Tomatoes, Toasted Pine Nuts, and Raspberry Vinaigrette

    [​IMG]

    Once again, our food was coming out in a good flow- we really appreciated it. For the main course, Pods & Tyler were trying Jack Sparrow’s Barbecue Marinated Beef Short Ribs
    Rubbed beef short ribs with tamarind-barbecue sauce served with onion red bliss mashed potatoes and plantain chip

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I had Captain Hook’s Macadamia Nut-Dusted Mahi Mahi
    Jasmine rice and sauteed pineapple on a mild curry sauce and i thought it was REALLY good!

    [​IMG]

    I'll have to continue this later- the dinner bell is ringing for me to start cooking....

    As I mentioned it before ....... that's the way I like it ........... an update before I go to bed :lmao: and ........... hopefully one, when I get up! :rotfl2:

    Thanks Ellen! Great review of Pirate Night. I really love the fun of it, even though we missed the Animator's Palate transformation because of Pirate Night during our first cruise.

    Hope you went up on deck to watch the fireworks - my favourite part of the evening, closely followed by the Pirate buffet, now that I have discovered it! :laughing:

    Martinis and Naughty Mud Love? I have to take a Disney Cruise. You have to help me plan it :flower3: Do you use points or pay cash or can you do some of each? With 5 of us our stateroom options would be limited and super spendy I am guessing? Realistically it wouldn't be 2013 or 2014 but it appears from what little I have seen is that they book rather quickly.


    I have to take a Disney Cruise! Our friends from here (Utah) are leaving for one next Sunday- Mexico I believe.

    Back to reading......:surfweb:

    Sorry about that! Ok...back to dinner...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Out came the dessert menu-

    [​IMG]

    And Tyler announced he was full, and going back to Edge. Pods & I were also full, so we skipped dessert, too (I know, I'm SO SORRY!!!! I am especially regretting this right now because I wish I would have tried Pirates of the Caribbean's Sweet Temptations
    A trio of Shiver-me-Timbers white chocolate cheesecake , rum barbossa, walk the triple layered chocolate gangplank cake....

    .....But I did not. But Timmy is THERE for you guys! Please try to control your excitement.... He had....

    Vanilla Ice cream with Sprinkles.

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl2: We are the WORST!!! :rotfl2: Just in case you need another shot of vanilla ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth...

    [​IMG]

    And now, for your viewing pleasure, I give you Pirate Pods. ARGHHHHHH!

    [​IMG]

    OMG...that pic just cracks me up!! :lmao:

    The limbo contest started, and those servers were soooooo into it!! Lucky us, we had the perfect seats at table 75! Too bad we don't know any of these people, but maybe YOU do!!

    As soon as Tim finished his ice cream, 45 minutes later :rolleyes1 (Timmy is the world's SLOWEST eater), he, too, announced he was going back to Edge.

    :scared1:

    WHAT???? What about the Pirate Party?? The dancing?? The pilaging?? The plundering?? The fireworks??

    MICKEY MOUSE?????????????????????????

    He says, "Yea...um, uh...I don't think so."


    Don't worry- we still wanted to be pirates (well, at least I did. Pods just kept saying, "But I don't WANNA be a pirate!") :rotfl2:

    Aaahhh, Seinfeld. Funniest show ever, the lines never get tired.

    Ok, so back to the room for a minute before (although I have no idea WHY...maybe a pit stop?) and we were happy to meet THIS guy- my favorite towel animal of the week-

    [​IMG]

    He just has so much personality, doesn't he?

    [​IMG]

    I decided to try to be just like him....

    [​IMG]

    But I don't think i can pull it off. :rotfl2:

    Up next...time to line dance by myself with all the strangers...or will I actually KNOW someone this time? :rolleyes: OOOhhhh, the suspense must be KILLING you!!

    :cool1: I am caught up baybee!

    I love the idea of spending the day in port at an AI resort vs doing a ton if sightseeing but I am a lazy girl who likes to explore the beach, bar, and pool.

    The food looks truly delicious and for DH who is a major foodie, this will be an important selling point fa sho!

    What are FE gifts? :confused3

    How long was your cruise? It seems like you got a good mix of relaxation and party time aside from the kid bellowing in the cabin near yours. :scared1:

    That pineapple looks amazing. I am a hooker for a decent piece of grilled/baked pineapple. :angel:
