    They were definitely a highlight of the cruise, I didn't miss a single one.

    After the Golden Mickeys Mom and I made our way down to Rockin Bar D to see comedian Heath Hyche. He had performed in the All Aboard: Let The Magic Begin stage show the night before and was pretty funny so Mom and I decided to go see his family show as we had time before dinner.

    The bar was pretty packed, this is not the best of pictures but oh well.

    He was pretty funny although I found his skit the night before more entertaining. Perhaps his adult show was better, not sure as we never got around to going to see him again.

    Once his show was over we still had a few minutes to kill before dinner so we were loitering around the atrium when we heard glass smashing. We looked over and somebody on one of the upper decks had dropped what must have been a glass over the railing and it had hit a lady in the atrium and cut her arm. It was not a serious injury and the staff reacted really quickly cleaning it up and taking care of the injury. What an idiot that person was who dropped the glass though! They are lucky that the woman was not more seriously injured.

    Dinner this night was in Lumiere's which is the nicest of the three main dining rooms. I was glad that we were lucky enough to be eating here on Formal Night, it just had the right atmosphere. It wouldn't really feel like Formal Night dining in the bright and colourful Parrot Cay.

    Lumiere's is a beautiful restaurant. The main chandeliers in the restaurant are glass and have a rose encased in them like in the movie. The back wall has a beautiful mosaic from Beauty and the Beast. It is just a very beautiful and elegant restaurant. I think I took pictures of the restaurant later in the trip.

    This night we were dining off the Golden Mickey's menu. I don't have too many food pictures as lots of people ordered the same thing or I just forgot to get a picture, sorry! :laughing:

    I don't have an online menu to reference in labeling these food dishes so you will just have to guess what some of these are. ;)

    For my appetizer I decided to be adventurous and I ordered the Cheese Souffle.

    [​IMG]

    I did not care for it but everybody else at the table seemed to like it.

    [​IMG]

    Mom's entree, some kind of fish I believe, she ordered fish pretty much every night.

    [​IMG]

    None of the Featured Entrees appealed to me so I ordered from the "Lighter Fare" menu. I had a choice of Chicken, Steak and something else. I ordered the chicken.

    [​IMG]

    Once I peeled the skin off the chicken was good, the rice was very tasty.

    [​IMG]

    For dessert I ordered the Golden Chocolate Chocolate Award.

    [​IMG]

    Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy!

    Did you get the hint that I absolutely loved my dessert? It was so good!

    Mom said she didn't want anything for dessert so this is what they brought her. :laughing: I knew this was coming from reading the boards but it was a total surprise for Mom and most of the table.

    [​IMG]

    Our servers also brought three creme brulees to the table for everybody to share. We didn't even have to order them, they just brought them over.

    [​IMG]

    Also the servers brought over two GIANT slices of cake. One for the newlyweds and one for the couple that were taking their much delayed honeymoon.

    [​IMG]

    There was no way they could eat them on top of the desserts they ordered and the creme brulee so they offered to share with the table. We were all stuffed too so they ended up taking the cake back to their rooms and storing them in the little refrigerator.

    Once again we didn't get out of dinner until nearly 10pm and we were completely tuckered out. So once again we skipped the adult entertainment and just went up to our room and got ready for bed. The adult game that night was "Magic Quest" which is a pretty hilarious game. You are divided into groups and it is sort of like a scavenger hunt. The host will call for such things as "a man in a bra and high heels" Well which ever group got those things up to him first won the round. I saw some pictures from that night on the Dis and one of my tablemates (honeymooner) was in them wearing a bra, lip stick and high heels. I saved it and sent it to him. :laughing:

    Back at the room this was waiting for us

    [​IMG]

    First Mom had to watch the news to see if Susan Boyle had won Britain's Got Talent.

    It was such a relief to get out of my strappy heels. My feet were still SO swollen and the strapps and left criss-cross indents in my feet. Ouch! I rubbed some mint healing foot lotion in that we had picked up at one of the gift shops on the hopes that it would help relieve the swelling and pain a bit.

    Coming up: Another day at sea and our Palo Champagne Brunch!

    The Navigator for that day

    The pics I saw were pretty hilarious, it is too bad that Mom and I were always so tired after dinner.



    It did look like chicken didn't it? I am 99% sure it is fish though, all she evr seemed to order was seafood, yuck!


    :laughing: My next update is going to leave you salivating then. ;)

    The show looked fantastic and those desserts, yummy!!!! How funny though that your Mom needed to know the result of Britain's Got Talent :rotfl: Was she upset she lost?

    The first part of the hike was wonderful, I just wish we had stopped at the lakes so I could have avoided emotional and physical trauma! :laughing: The rest of the family had a grand time though. :rolleyes:


    :laughing: Mom was a Susan Boyle fan so she was probably disappointed. I too found it amusing that she couldn't wait until we got home to find out, instead she had to find out right away! :laughing:

    Hi Rosie, my dessert was the best, talk about low-cal. I was really good on this trip, I only ordered dessert 2x, the whole time. I ate a lot of fresh fruit each day, as the fruit was so fresh and delicious, I think I had a large fruit plate each morning for breakfast, then I fixed a small plate to take back to the room for snacking on later. It was a VERY HEALTHY cruise for me.

    My fish was yummy, Lessa is right, I ordered fish everyday, I found that it was the freshest, broiled and steamed. I think that I may have grossed out a few at dinnner on some evenings with some of my choices, raw tuna, escargot, etc...
    I am the adventourous one in the family!!

    Hi Jo, I am a huge Susan Doyle fan! I really enjoyed seeing her when she sang "wild horses" on America's Got Talent.

    How was the your trip and the Expedition Everest challenge?
