    After dinner headed back to the stateroom really quick and then headed up to the pirate party. I watched from deck 9 this time. After the pirate party was done there was a little dance party with DJ Cide.

    I'm not sure what dad did the rest of the night, but here are pictures of the door he took.

    I headed the drop a few things off in the stateroom and then I headed to Fathoms for Krazy Karaoke, which this cruise was packed. After Karaoke, was guest DJ Cide playing music.

    [​IMG]

    So I chilled there and got a few drinks at the bar.

    [​IMG]

    Saw Vicky and her husband and chatted with them. Closed the bar down tonight with a pretty crowded night club for the most part. Headed to deck 9 and got a soda and then headed back to the stateroom and had to take a picture of carpet outside the stateroom.

    Pretty much passed put as soon as I layed down

    Woke up around 8:00am, dad was out of the room getting us drinks. I got up and ready for the day. Dad came back with the drinks and we watched some tv and talked for a bit. After a while I made a plan with my dad to meet outside Palo before brunch. I decided to walked around the ship a little and took some pictures.

    [​IMG]

    The Princess Gathering was happening so watched that from decks 5 and 4 for a while.

    Met up with Dad outside Palo at 10:00. He was there first so he took a picture.

    [​IMG]

    I can't remember who our server was.(that happens when you don't finish the report soon enough) I will say the server was good though and he knew our favorite server Ana, so we chated about her a little. Palo brunch was great once again as you can see from my face.

    [​IMG]

    After brunch we headed to the Castaway Club Reception in O'Gills. Got pictures with Mickey.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that I split up with dad, but not before making plans to meet at the martini tasting. So I went and walked around the ship and took some more pictures.

    I must have slept on deck 10 for a while and my dad must have seen me.

    Headed to Keys for the Martini Tasting, which was great once again, the bartender doing the tasting was good at it too and made a great Dirty Martini too. After the tasting I headed back to the room to relax.

Walked around for a while then went to see the adult show of Buckets N Boards, after that stayed for 70's Disco Legends and got a few drinks, tonight also danced with Vicky, her husband, and others. Stayed till the bar closed at 2:00am. After that walked around the ship and took a few pictures.

    This morning we had cell service so of course I was up bright and early on Facebook. We had to be up early to go through immigration as well. We headed down to D Lounge for immigration, which was easy and painless. We then headed up to Cabanas for breakfast. After breakfast we were going to go back to the room, but it was being cleaned. We headed up to the Atrium and took some pictures.

    We decided to walk to the Southern Most Point. So we started walking. Took a picture at my street along the way. Yup there is a Julia street.

    [​IMG]

    We saw this animal while walking.

    [​IMG]

    And we made it.

    [​IMG]

    I got a picture or two.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We walked back to town after that.

    [​IMG].

    We shopped a little and then went to Hog Breath's Saloon and got drinks. After that we headed to Sloppy Joe's a got drinks and some hush puppies to eat.

    [​IMG]

    After that we walked around some more. We saw Chewbacca and got two pictures. You could take as many pictures as you want, but just had to tip him.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got some Key Lime Pie and then headed back towards the ship area where we chilled and took some pictures.

    I headed back to the room to pack. and shower so I wouldn't have to later. Met up with Dad and we saw Disney Dreams. After Disney Dreams I headed to O'Gills while dad went to finish packing, after a while Dad joined me and we got to chat with Nyoman one last time this trip. We finished our beers and dad went back to the stateroom while I went and walked around.

    [​IMG]

    Dad joined me and we saw Nyoman again, so we got a picture with him.

    [​IMG]

    Dad said he had seen Tisa, so I got a picture with her.

    [​IMG]

    Dinner was in Animator's Palate Tonight. Dad had to run up to the room tonight during dinner and he saw this.

    Dinner was good and the new show was nice as well.

    After Til We Meet Again I went and got a picture with Sheree which both pictures were taken by Vicky.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I went to Fathoms

    [​IMG]

    for a beer and for POP! and 80's Flashback which were both new and great. Me and people I met danced and drank and had a great time. Tonight my sandals finally broke, I knew they would soon. So by the time I left I had no shoes. So I went back to the stateroom and got my other shoes and walked around taking pictures.

    nope I don't get board, plenty to do. I barely remember the first one, but not because of doing so many because we travel other places a lot and I do remember bits of pieces of stuff I did when I was 14 and younger, but not everything. I was 14 when I first went
