SAIL AWAY PARTY and SAILING AWAY! *Hi Dis Friends!! DBF and I are celebrating 9 months together today!!!! We can't be together but we will be celebration 10 months in May! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I tried to go to Epcot to see Flower and Garden but after I ate lunch at Electric Umbrella it started to rain so I left! I have a few more weeks to go see it, hopefully I'll get past Mousegear next time! We're all booked for Memorial Day! We'll be staying at POP May 23-24 and WL 24-28! We'll have the regular DDP. I can't wait to see what DBF has in store for this trip ( I told him to plan it all except the resort info!) March 24, 2013 *Disclaimer..I released this and then decided to go back and edit to include the actual sail away! When I left off, DBF and I were unpacking some more when it was time to head for the Sail Away Party! They announced over the speaker (BTW, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the "When You Wish Upon a Star" chimes to signal announcements!) that the party would be indoors because of the storm. I was slightly bummed since it wasn't the norm for the party but we dealt. On our way down to deck 5 to watch from above we decided to stop and get ice cream cones! Thankfully we had finished before it started! We found spots near a couple (who I thought we might share a table with at dinner but we didn't) and it ended up being a not-bad spot! CMs were handing out pom-poms but we didn't get any since we were tucked in a corner. The finale with confetti and I had goose bumps out the wazoo!!!! After the show we ducked out to try and beat the crowd and it was obvious that the main elevators were NOT and option haha. We walked up a few sets of stairs and then walked down to our elevators in the forward which was much better! We got back to the room just in time to hear the horn sound for us to leave which was pretty cool bc I was on the phone with my mom when the horn sounded so she got to hear it! and then we were off!!!!!!! *FIRST TIME CRUISE LESSON #10 #10: WATCH THE SHIP SAIL AWAY! If you don't have a verandah you really should be on some outside deck to watch the ship sail away (especially on the starboard side). It really was a surreal experience and one of my favorite parts of the trip! I had some major goose bumps for sure! DBF was right..GET A VERANDAH IF YOU CAN! I quickly said bye to my mom as we pulled out and not 20-30 mins after we left the coast and I lost phone service. I kept my phone on Airplane Mode for the rest of the trip (with the exception of taking it off for a few mins at sea, Nassau, and CC to see if I had anything..nope!) Notice the weather?! Everyone cheered and honked horns at us!!! That gave me goose bumps as well!!! We sailed away to a rainbow in front us. It was a chilling feeling (in a good way) because believe it or not, there has been more than one time that I've seen a rainbow the day that DBF was to travel to see me or me to see him or we're together. It was pretty crazy and I was happy to see that and knew it would be a good trip! GOOD BYE FLORIDA!!! HELLO OCEAN WATERS! It was official that we were on vacation and our adventure was about to begin! We finished unpacking and decided to see what adventure to find first! UP NEXT: GOLDEN MICKEYS, MEGAN'S SHOPPING SPREE, AND FIRST DINNER!
